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!
Each week our contributors are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!
Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.
Black Hammer #12 (Dark Horse) – Jeff Lemire continues to impress with his take on deconstructing super heroes.
Detective Comics #963 (DC Comics) – Things are kicking up as the group now knows that Tim Drake is alive. But, before we get to that this issue focuses on Spoiler and Anarky.
Mother Panic #10 (DC Comics/Young Animal) – Batman without the restraint. Just brutal and awesome.
Nightwing: The New Order #1 (DC Comics) – Maybe not the best timing but we’re intrigued to see what this fascist Nightwing has in store for us.
First Strike #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue started off with a bang (literally) and we can’t wait to see what the second brings in this crossover of properties like G.I. Joe and Transformers.
Saucer State #3 (IDW Publishing) – Aliens. Conspiracies. Politics. The President of the United States. Yes please!
Hard Place #1 (Image Comics) – A former wheelman tries to go straight but is caught up in a robbery and is being chased by the cops and Russian mob. Sounds awesome!
Lazarus X Plus 66 #2 (Image Comics) – Some of the best world building in all of entertainment.
Shirtless Bear-Fighter #3 (Image Comics) – The concept is goofy but we’ve been having a blast with this series.
Generations: Unworthy Thor & Mighty Thor #1 (Marvel) – We’re not quite sure the big picture point of these one-shots, but we’re still holding out hope.
Secret Empire #9 (Marvel) – We’ve had mixed reactions here as to this event (generally negative) but with one more issue to go we want to see how it wraps up and if there’s any way to right this wrong.
X-Men: Gold #10 (Marvel) – The relaunched X line from Marvel has been a big improvement and this is easily its best series.
Bubblegun Vol. 2 #4 (Aspen) -A fun sci-fi series with eye catching visuals that feels like it should have a game to go along with it.
Catalyst Prime: Incidentals #1 (Lion Forge) – The company’s latest addition to its Catalyst Prime line of comics and the first group book. We’re intrigued to see where things go and how this stands out.
Clueless (BOOM! Studios) – As if!? The classic film gets a new graphic novel and we’re so ready to head back to the 90s.
Heathen #5 (Vault Comics) – The first four issues have been fantastic to read and look at in this new take with a vikings(ish) world.
Hi-Fi Fight Club #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Sounds like a riff on Empire Records. We’re sold on that alone.
Letter 44 #35 (Oni Press) – All the answers!!! ALL OF THEM!!! The series wraps up with this final issue.
Sisters of Sorrow #2 (BOOM! Studios) – A gritty series from the same person that did Sons of Anarchy. The first issue felt like a 70s exploitation/revenge film in a way and it’ll be interesting to see where the series goes from there.
War Mother #1 (Valiant) – This character has been touched upon a few times through various Valiant events, but she’s finally getting her own series and we can’t wait to see what’s done with the character. Valiant consistently knocks it out of the park and we’re expecting no less with this one.
