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.
Action Comics #992 (DC Comics) – With “The Oz Effect” over, we’re intrigued to see where this series goes as that story attacked the very hope Superman is built on.
The Apocalypse Girl #1 (Amigo Comics) – Metis is 16, has all these problems and more. Because, on top of that, the End of the World happened and she has to cope with bloodthirsty demons and a 4,000-years old, critical, undead mom! This just sounds awesome.
Betty and Veronica: Vixens #1 (Archie Comics) – We’ve read it, it’s awesome. Check out our early review.
The Demon: Hell is Earth #1 (DC Comics) – Out! Out! Our favorite Demon is back in a new limited series. The first issue is intriguing and should be fun for long time fans of the character.
Detective Comics #969 (DC Comics) – Kicking off “Fall of the Batmen.” That title alone has us taking notice.
Doomsday Clock #1 (DC Comics) – We’ve already posted multiple reviews, but this is THE comic of the week. After lots of build up the world of Watchmen and DC collide.
Doppleganger #1 (Alterna Comics) – Dennis’ grip on reality fully unravels when an evil version of himself begins to torment him. Alterna has been doing an awesome job with their newsprint line of comics and this is a brand new one to check out. Just $1.50 people!
Eleanor & the Egret #5 (AfterShock) – Amazing art and beyond adorable story. If you’re not reading this series, you’re missing out.
Gregory Suicide (Dark Horse) – A graphic novel taking on clones and a story that spirals in paranoia. A solid read with some really cool art.
Imaginary Fiends #1 (DC Comics/Vertigo) – Imaginary friends that also want you to kill. The procedural meets… well, we’re not quite sure. First issue is a great set up in what will be an interesting twist on the police genre.
Long Lost #1 (Scout Comics) – Stranger Things meets Ghost World in Long Lost, the haunting story of two estranged sisters who find themselves drawn back to their small southern hometown to unlock the disturbing mysteries that are hidden there, with all roads leading back to their enigmatic, secretive mother
Motor Girl #10 (Abstract Studios) – The final issue of the series. We’re sad already.
Rugrats #2 (BOOM! Studios/KaBOOM!) – We loved the cartoon. We loved the first issue. We’re getting our Rugrats fix, how about you? A comic that’s great for kids and their parents looking for nostalgia.
Sherlock Frankenstein & the Legion of Evil #2 (Dark Horse) – The world of Black Hammer continues to expand in this series. Jeff Lemire people!!!
Silver Sable and the Wild Pack #36 (Marvel) – 90s nostalgia, nuff said.
Star Wars #39 (Marvel) – If you’re not reading Marvel’s Star Wars comics you’re missing out on great action and a fantastic extension of the world. If you’re a fan of the movies and not reading these, you’re really missing out.
Transformers: Optimus Prime #13 (IDW Publishing) – Post “First Strike” Optimus heads into the Cybertronian wilderness to search for the first new life in four million years. These types of stories tend to really stand out.
Void Trip #1 (Image Comics) – The story of Ana and Gabe, the last two humans left alive in the galaxy. They’re low on fuel, they’re low on food, and they’re low on psychedelic space froot, but they’re still determined to make it to the promised land: hippy-paradise, super-planet Euphoria.
WWE #11 (BOOM! Studios) – If you’re a fan of wrestling, these comics are a must.
X-O Manowar #9 (Valiant Entertainment) – One of the best series out there today.
