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: X-O Manowar #3 (Valiant) – Two words: Space Conan. More words: My favourite series from any publisher right now, this is a beautifully illustrated an fantastically written comic.

Saucer State #1 (IDW Publishing) – This was an awesome series when that last volume came out through Vertigo. Thankfully we get another conspiracy filled volume. Think the X-Files but the President is involved in the investigation. A solid mix of conspiracy and politics.
Batman/The Shadow #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue I was mixed on, but I’m really excited to see where this second one goes. It’s a team up of two classic characters that works so well together.
East of West #33 (Image Comics) – This series always delivers in a weird mix of the Wild West, political maneuvering and religious fervor.
Samaritan Veritas #1 (Top Cow Productions) – Spinning out of the Postal/Think Tank world of Top Cow is a new series focused on hacker looking to take down a corrupt President…
