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!
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: Old Man Logan #3 (Marvel) – I love this series. It’s one of the very very few bi-monthly comics I buy (read the only one), and even waiting two weeks between issues (and longer from #2 to #3) is killing me. This series reminds me why I love Wolverine – sorry, Old Man Logan.
Johnny Red #5 (Titan Comics) – There’s something about Johnny Red that I can’t get enough of. This is, easily, the best comic not featuring spandex on the racks right now; a WW2 era story featuring a British fighter pilot flying for the Russians that has some stunning airborne dogfights. Just wonderful.
Top Pick: Black Widow #1 (Marvel) – Chris Samnee and Mark Waid is a creative team that always gets me to take notice. The fact they’re now taking on Black Widow after breathing life in to other characters has me really intrigued and looking forward to reading this.
Dreaming Eagles #3 (Aftershock Comics) – Garth Ennis has mastered the military historical comic and has two out this week. Alex picked one, this is the other one. Get them both. The difference? Ennis mixes in race relations in to this one. Solid read.
Old Man Logan #3 (Marvel) – The best comic Marvel is producing right now. A great translation of the western revenge story in comic form.
Sheriff of Babylon #4 (Vertigo) – So who is the “sheriff”? This comic adds a hell of a layer to that aspect of the comic showing off the layered nuance and intelligence of it. An absolutely amazing comic that’s a must read for individuals interested in comics that reflect real world modern events.
Tomboy #4 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – This series is blowing me away, an indie comic that too few people are reading. A young girl is a vigilante taking on the men that killed her best friend and crooked cops. Brutally violent and a gripping read.
