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.
Top Pick: Runaways #1 (Marvel) – I was late to the party when this book was first out, but I did read and catch up on it and I really enjoyed it. I’m excited to see these characters now and find out what’s been going on with them.
Secret Empire Omega #1 (Marvel) – Secret Empire was a train wreck that I just couldn’t look away from. I followed the entire run just to see how bad the story could get…and wow I was not disappointed. And I still can’t get rid of the stink that last issue left. I still can’t believe the whole thing was green lit. But I digress; This issue is only on my list just to see what happens after the dust settles….and to see if the world reverts back to normal just as quickly as it seemed to be taken over by Hydra, though I have a feeling it will be a “long road back to normalcy” *eye roll*
Uncanny Avengers #27 (Marvel) – Scarlet Witch is back on an Avengers team…enough said!
Top Pick: Harley Quinn 25th Anniversary Special #1 (DC Comics) – What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas… until now, find out what happened in Vegas with some of our favorite DC lady bad asses.
The Defenders #5 (Marvel) – The Punisher has gone rogue and is turning on the team. I feel an epic rumble going down!
Runaways #1 (Marvel) – They’re back and I’m here for it!!
Suicide Squad #25 (DC Comics) – The “Kill Your Darlings” arc is ending, grab popcorn because it’s going all the way down.
Wynonna Earp: Season Zero #3 (IDW Publishing) – Halfway through the story and Wynonna is giving us something to enjoy until we can see more of her and the game on TV.
Slam: The Next Jam #1 (BOOM! Studios) – The next season of this amazingly accurate and hella fun derby life comic is here and I’ve got all the feels!
Top Pick: Dark Nights: Metal #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue knocked it out of the park bringing together lots of hints and winks that have been building over the years as Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo reteamed for their latest Batman-centric adventure. The second really kicks things up to 11.
First Strike #3 (IDW Publishing) – A fun event that brings together G.I. Joe, Transformers, and more in a story that feels like something my 8 year old self would have come up with.
Ghost Money #2 (Lion Forge Comics) – A lot of money was made on 9/11, but what happened to it? This is that story. The first issue was unexpected and I was floored as to how good it was.
Mech Cadet Yu #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue was beyond adorable in a story that’s perfect for comic fans of all ages. Giant robots, aliens, a kid and his robot friend, it’s a fun series that really surprised me as to how much I enjoyed it. A comic that was on my radar quickly jumped high on my list of ones I look forward to.
Mister Miracle #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue was amazing and the second brings us the war as a new Highfather takes his throne and a conspiracy may be afoot.
