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.
30 Days of Night #1 (IDW Publishing) – A reimagining of the classic horror series.
Assassinistas #1 (IDW Publishing) – Mom’s an assassin who spent her sons’ tuition on new guns. Guess the son needs to get a job helping mom! Quirky concept, sounds like a lot of fun.
Backways #1 (AfterShock) – Writer Justin Jordan does Harry Potter… which is intriguing.
Catalyst Prime: Accell Vol. 2 #2 (Lion Forge Comics) – Lion Forge continues to entertain and their speedster is full of excitement and energy.
Catalyst Prime: Summit #1 (Lion Forge Comics) – A new entry in Lion Forge’s Catalyst Prime universe. Any new release, we’re intrigued and must check it out.
Curse Words: Holiday Special (Image Comics) – Have you been reading Curse Words? If not, you’re missing out.
Dark Ark #4 (AfterShock) – A new take on Noah’s ark, but this is the other arc, with all of the monsters. The last issue pivoted the series and we’re excited to see what’s next.
Dark Nights: Metal #4 (DC Comics) – Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap.
Fence #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue was amazing. The series is a western take on sports manga. It’s so good!
Hellboy: Krampusnacht #1 (Dark Horse) – Hellboy does Christmas. Nuff said.
Marvel Two-In-One #1 (Marvel) – If you’ve never read an issue of this classic series, it’s a lot of fun. Here’s hoping this new one captures that of the original.
Rom & the Micronauts #1 (IDW Publishing) – Two properties coming together. We’re intrigued.
Sink #3 (ComixTribe) – Maybe the most disturbing comic series of the year?
Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #15 (Marvel) – If you don’t know Aphra, you’re missing out. Think Indiana Jones but in Star Wars.
Star Wars: Poe Dameron #22 (Marvel) – Filling in the gaps of the Star Wars universe.
Tales of Suspense #100 (Marvel) – Another classic Marvel title returns! This one’s exploring the “death” of the Black Widow.
