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.
Batman: Creature of the Night #1 (DC Comics) – Kurt Busiek and John Paul Leon unite for a spiritual companion to Superman: Secret Identity. Busiek writing Batman, yes please!
Catalyst Prime: Kino #1 (Lion Forge Comics) – A new entry in Lion Forge’s impressive new world. Anything the release is worth checking out and has us excited!
Chasing Hitler #1 (Red 5 Comics) – From the mind of a high school senior, the niece of Jai Nitz. The creator and concept of Hitler surviving and being chased down has us intrigued.
Dark Ark #3 (AfterShock) – Have you read the first two issues? This mash-up of horror and Biblical concepts is a fascinating and fun read.
Darkhawk #51 (Marvel) – We’re always interested in seeing what Marvel is doing with these one-shots and revisiting some classic characters and stories.
Eternity #2 (Valiant) – Is another classic in the making too hogh a bar?
Giantkillers #0 (IDW Publishing/Ominous Press) – Bart Sears and Ron Marz are continuing to kick off their new world and we want to see what it’s all about.
Interceptor Vol. 2 Reactor #1 (Vault Comics) – Donny Cates is writing it and that’s all we need to know about this return into the world of vampire warfare.
John Wick #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – If you’ve seen the two movies you know why we’re excited for this.
Mystik U #1 (DC Comics) – It’s Harry Potter meets Gotham Academy with DC’s mystical characters. We’re onboard to see where this goes.
Splatoon Vol. 1 (VIZ Media) – The popular video game in manga form!
Star Trek Discovery #1 (IDW Publishing) – The show has been fantastic so we’re expect the same with these comics.
Star Wars Comics (Marvel and IDW Publishing) – There’s four different Star Wars comics from two publishers and we’re excited for them all.
Sword of Ages #1 (IDW Publishing) – Gabriel Rodriguez, the writer/artist/Locke & Key co-creator does fantasy. Yes please!
