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.
Atomic Robo: Spectre of Tomorrow #1 (IDW Publishing) – Atomic Robo and his crew are back in a whole new adventure! If you’ve never read this series, now’s the time to start in a series that’s fun, full of action, with fantastic art, and great for young and old alike.
Batman #34 (DC Comics) – Batman and Catwoman are touring the globe after their engagement and the first stop is to take care of loose strings concerning his relationship with Talia Al-Ghul.
Batman: The Devestator #1 (DC Comics) – The latest one-shot focused on a Batman from the Dark Multiverse, this one mixing Batman with Doomsday!
Black Lightning: Cold, Dead, Hands #1 (DC Comics) – With a new television series around the corner, DC has launched this mini-series from the characters original creator. With a slight update for the times, the first issue is a fantastic read that touches upon real world issues.
Captain America #695 (Marvel) – Captain America’s reputation (and the character) are definitely at a low point thanks to a year and a half of stories that saw him betraying everything he stood for. Can the new creative team redeem the character?
Catalyst Prime: Noble #6 (Lion Forge Comics) – If you haven’t been checking out Lion Forge’s Catalyst Prime universe, you’re missing out. The comic line has diverse voices in creators, characters, styles, it’s a fresh take on the superhero genre.
Deadman #1 (DC Comics) – Neal Adams on Deadman… do you need to know anything else?
Gravediggers Union #1 (Image Comics) – A new Image series and this first issue is oversized. By Wes Craig and Toby Cypress, this series sees a group that are the only ones that can stop the apocalypse. Steroid zombies, monster gods, swamp vampires, ghost storms, and space monkeys!
The Jetsons #1 (DC Comics) – If you read the already released short take on these characters you’ll know why we’re excited for this new comic. A very interesting take on the classic characters that has us pondering existence.
Lazaretto #3 (BOOM! Studios) – A claustrophobic series taking place in a college dorm focused on an outbreak. The art has us mixed but the story is top notch and rather creep since it could really happen.
No. 1 With a Bullet #1 (Image Comics) – Another new Image series by Jacob Semahn and Jorge Corona that sounds like it takes on technology with a slight horror take. We always dig some good ole futurism.
Power Pack #63 (Marvel) – It’s Power Pack, that’s reason enough to get us excited.
TMNT/Ghostbusters II #1 (IDW Publishing) – The two franchises are back together and the Ghostbusters must save the Turtles from the ghost dimension.
Unpresidential (Z2 Comics) – Some solid satire on American politics and culture it features Kim Jong Un running for President.
The Walking Dead #173 (Skybound/Image Comics) – Things are heating up and we want to know what, and who, Michonne and her team discover!
