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 #8 (Oni Press) – When Billy learns of a second impending attack, he begins to research the group thought to be behind them. What he doesn’t know is that it’s his best friends. Writer Joshua Hale Fialkov and artist Joe Infurnari‘s time bending series is beyond fantastic each issue, and one of the best comics on the market.
Alex + Ada #11 (Image Comics) – Are you reading this? You should! An interesting story of love and what it means to be human.
Avengers & X-Men: AXIS #8 (Marvel) – The overall event is a bit uneven, but there’s some interesting stuff being done here. There’s a good chance that there’ll be some lasting ramifications…. but we’ll see.
Django Zorro #2 (Dynamite) – It shouldn’t work, but the first issue sure did! Two interesting characters meet, in this series by Tarantino himself. If you like either of these characters, do yourself a favor and check this out. If you’re not, still do yourself a favor and check this out.
The Kitchen #2 (Vertigo) – With their husbands in jail, three women must keep control of their territory. This mob tale had an amazing debut, and is easily up there as one of our favorite stories about made men (women in this case).
Rocket Salvage #1 (BOOM! Studios/Archaia) – Yehudi Mercado puts out some fantastic work, and this new series looks hilarious.
Rumble #1 (Image Comics) – Okay, so a scarecrow walks into a bar…and proceeds to wreak havoc across two worlds! After a long absence, Rathraq, Scarecrow Warrior God, is back—and very unhappy. Bad news for his old enemies, yes, but worse news for everybody else! Sounds interesting to us!
Solitary #1 (Devil’s Due Entertainment) – They say orange is the new black, but does that work the same way for a superhero? Tim was once a hero, now wrongly sentenced to death row, awaiting execution. But what happens when this convict discovers he just may be immortal?
Stumptown Vol. 3 #4 (Oni Press) – When Dex’s date causes tension between her and Grey, she has to balance Ansel’s needs with those of her case. Meanwhile, the puzzle pieces start to come together for CK as she gets closer to who assaulted Mercury! Writer Greg Rucka has given us such an amazing character in Dex!
The Wicked + The Divine #6 (Image Comics) – One of the best comics on the market.
