Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Odyc01_CoverWednesdays 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: ODY-C #1 (Image Comics) –
An epic 26 centuries in the making: In the aftermath of a galactic war a hundred years long, Odyssia the Clever Champion and her compatriots begin their longest, strangest trip yet: the one home. A gender-bent eye-popping psychedelic science fiction odyssey begins here. Written by Matt Fraction? Yes please!

Capture Creatures #1 (KaBOOM!/BOOM! Studios) – Hundreds of mysterious creatures pop up and two kids must catch them all figure out the mystery being them. Sound familiar? Yeah, this potentially can go huge.

Critical Hit #3 (Black Mask Studios) – The first two issues have been a very different take on Matt Miners animal activist series of comics. And boy is it good.

Dawn of the Planet of the Apes #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Bridging the gap between the first and second film. If you’re a fan of the Planet of the Apes series, this is a must.

The Delinquents #4 (Valiant) – The amazing mini-series wraps up after bringing together Valiant’s Archer & Armstrong and Quantum & Woody. Hobo-tastic!

Letter 44 #12 (Oni Press) – Writer Charles Soule’s mixing of politics and sci-fi has been amazing so far, and we look forward to each issue. It has yet to disappoint.

Pirouette #2 (Black Mask Studios) – The first issue totally caught us off guard. Taking place in a circus, this horror infused title is more about running away from the big top, instead of running away with one.

Rasputin #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue left us mixed, mostly because we had no idea how you build a series from the concept. That said, the first issue was solid in writing and art. We’re intrigued to see where it all goes from here.

Southern Dog #3 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – A comic dealing with racism in the South with werewolves mixed in. Seems appropriate as far as timing.

Transformers Drift: Empire of Stone #1 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Transformers comics have been amazing, and this new series puts the spotlight on one of the most interesting characters.
