Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!
Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.
Pick of the Week: The Bunker #5 and The Bunker Vol. 1 (Oni Press) – Joshua Hale Fialkov and Joe Infurnari have put together a time bending mystery that delves into fate, and destiny. Oni is giving you a chance this week to catch up by not only releasing the latest issue, but also the first volume too. This is easily one of the best comics on the market.
Harbinger: Omegas #1 (Valiant) – When it comes to comic universes, Valiant has one of the best out there. Simple to follow, able to hop in on any series you want, it’s planned, and a case study of what to do. This latest series is a hopping on point to see what the hype is all about.
Henry and Glenn: Forever and Ever TP (Microcosm Publishing) – The brilliant indie series skewers rock masculinity by seeing what would happen if Glenn Danzig and Henry Rollins were more than just bandmates. This collects all the releases so far.
Lazarus #10 (Image) – One of the best female lead comics on the market, as well as a brilliant look at class. It’s a dystopian future where the world is carved up between rich families and their corporations.
The Mighty Titan #1 (Red Anvil Inc.) – Imagine you had powers. Imagine that you can make a difference. Bullets bounce off you. You can fly around the world and back. Imagine more that no matter what happens, whatever challenges may rear their head, you and you alone have the power to stop it. Now imagine you were told you have cancer. How would you deal with it. The Mighty Titan is writer Joe Martino’s attempt at wrapping his cancer experiences in a Superhero shell.
Nailbiter #4 (Image) – I’m a fan of serial killer, murder mysteries. This one is creepy and a great read too.
She-Hulk #7 (Marvel) – Charles Soule’s take on the green giant mixes her superherodom with her want of starting up her own law practice. An amazing comic that’s also one of the best of the year. It’s unique, entertaining, fun, funny, in other words, buy it!
The Sixth Gun: Days of the Dead #1 (Oni Press) – Brother Roberto and Jesup will one day play important roles in the epic struggle to control the Sixth Gun. This is the tale that would shape these two–one an agent of the Knights of Solomon, the other a priest of the Sword of Abraham–into the men they will become. Writer Cullen Bunn expands his fantastic series with this spin-off.
Superior Foes of Spider-Man #14 (Marvel) – What happens when you take a bunch of C/D-list villains and give them their own series? Awesomeness! One of my favorite comics on the market right now. Always a fun read.
Thanos: The Infinity Revelation (Marvel) – Jim Starlin takes on one of his most famous creations in this original graphic novel.
