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: Bob’s Burgers #1 (Dynamite) – The amazing television show comes to comics. Hopefully the humor translates well. The television is an underrated gem, and I expect the comic to be as well. I love the television show, so can’t wait to read this.
Black Science #8 (Image) – Fun action with every issue. I love this series. One of the best new releases this year.
Evil Empire #4 (BOOM! Studios) – Most series show the evil government after they come into power, this is how it gets to that point. With the world spinning around right now, this series feels eerily real.
Genius #4, Genius #5 (Top Cow Productions) – A beyond relevant comic that asks what happens if the world’s greatest tactical mind decided to use that to unify gangs and take on the establishment.
Hero Cats #1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – A new all-ages series from Action Lab which excels at those releases!
Letter 44 #9 (Oni Press) – An amazing mix of sci-fi and politics. Writer Charles Soule looks at what might really happen if we detected an alien presence in deep space.
POP #1 (Dark Horse) – What if the world’s pop stars and celebrities were literally products, grown by the world’s wealthiest (and most depraved) minds—and one of them escaped? Sounds awesome!
Saga #22 (Image) – One of the best comics out there has shifted its focus a bit in this second part, and it’s still amazing.
Sundowners #1 (Dark Horse) – The new series by Tim Seeley follows a group of heroes where you really question their sanity. I came out of the first issue wondering what was real, and what wasn’t. It has me more than intrigued enough to come back for more.
Wayward #1 (Image) – Jim Zub breaks out of his fantasy niche to follow a young woman’s trip to Japan where she’ll take on various monsters. The first issue is a fun read and the art is fantastic.
