Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!
We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.
Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.
Top Pick: Nutmeg #1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – There’s been such a fresh amount of releases of comics that break the mold of the traditional comic recently. This new series is another example of that focusing on some high school girls and their revival. Yup, it’s that simple, yet so welcome.
Archie vs. Predator #1 (Archie) – The first issue is great, mixing in classic Predator moments with a style that’s all Archie. So subversive. So much fun.
Bloodshot Reborn #1 (Valiant) – The Valiant left a very different Bloodshot out there at the end. This series picks up from there with a new status-quo and one I’m fascinated to see.
The Fox #1 (Archie/Dark Circle) – Archie’s going dark and mature with their new line of superhero comics. So far so good, and this first issue has very lofty expectations from me.
Letter 44 #15 (Oni Press) – It’s been six months since the last issue, and all hell has broken loose.
Top Pick: The Tithe #1 (Image Comics) – Comics are all the much better when they mix interesting concepts with social commentary. Such seems the case here with a group that robs from mega-churches and gives the money to the poor.
Big Thunder Mountain Railroad #2 (Marvel/Disney) – This is not just a Disney ride. Instead it gives a different take on the Western genre, while staying true enough to the roots of the story.
Ms. Marvel #14 (Marvel) – Those getting caught up in the Batgirling of all comics forget that Marvel did it here first without the fanfare. This standout series delivers more of what has given it such acclaim.
Thor #7 (Marvel) – This “Love It or Hate It” title should just be just the former. Since the introduction of the new Thor there has hardly been a misstep.
Grimm Fairy Tales Presents Wonderland #34 (Zenescope) – Erica J. Heflin’s run on Wonderland has been great so far, and this story arc promises more to come for Zenescope’s most complex superhero.
