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: All New Captain America #1 (Marvel) – It shouldn’t be a surprise this comic is in the top spot. Marvel kicks off a new era for Captain America and Falcon with this brand new series and starting point. It’ll be interesting to see where the series goes, especially since Marvel’s AXIS event is still going on.
Archer & Armstrong: One Percent (Valiant) – If you’ve read Archer and Armstrong’s adventures, there’s no explanation as to why this is on the list. Hilarious political commentary with hilarious action.
Batgirl #36 (DC Comics) – Did you read issue 35? We all loved the new direction for Batgirl, and look forward to seeing what this second issue has in store for us.
Bigger Bang #1 (IDW Publishing) – The series explores the depths of humanity through the warped lens of an ever-expanding multiverse. The first issue is a fascinating read and dissection of this commonly used story trope.
Captain America and the Mighty Avengers #1 (Marvel) – The Mighty Avengers team seemed like a bit of a response to the diversity issue in comics, but the series grew into a fun story that fleshed out a bunch of under utilized characters. With Falcap in charge now, this should get really interesting.
Deep State #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Justin Jordan takes on conspiracy theories. You can read our review here.
Drifter #1 (Image Comics) – Abram Pollux barely survives a crash landing on Ouro, a lawless backwater world where life is cheap. This world’s unique properties set the stage for a story that combines the dark wonder of a strange and alien landscape with the struggles of an abandoned and lawless frontier town.
Kitchen #1 (Vertigo) – New York City, late 1970s. Times Square is a haven for sex and drugs. The city teeters on the verge of bankruptcy, while blackouts can strike at any moment.
The Resurrectionists #1 (Dark Horse) – A new creator owned series that has a cool take on reincarnation. It’s similar to some other series out there, but the first issue is a lot of fun.
Superior Iron Man #1 (Marvel) – A new direction for Tony Stark and Iron Man as he moves out west for a bit of a darker turn.
