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: Silencer #1 (DC Comics) – Dan Abnett is always good and John Romita Jr’s art looks better than it has in years. Of all the New Age of Heroes line this one probably interested me the least but I am definitely in.
Detective Comics Annual #1 (DC Comics) – James Tynion IV and Eddy Barrows at the top of their game and a new origin of one of my favorite Batman villains? Yes, please.
Eternal (Black Mask Studios) – A beautifully drawn and colored graphic novella that virtually demands to be re-read.
Top Pick: Black [AF]: America’s Sweetheart (Black Mask Studios) – The world of Black expands with this first spin-off a graphic novel that’s really interesting and entertaining. Black is a world where only Black individuals have superpowers. You can imagine the implications of that. Where the first volume was all about that truth coming out and the conspiracy hiding it ending, this volume moves beyond that… and adds a hell of a twist. Definitely catching me off guard, this is a sequel that improves upon the original.
Dark Ark #5 (AfterShock Comics) – The series about that “other arc” continues and I’m fascinated to see where this dark Biblical story goes.
Dark Nights: Metal #5 (DC Comics) – Things really get crazy here as things go from bad to worse. It lives up to the word “dark.” For an “event,” this series has delivered.
DC Super Hero Girls: Date With Disaster (DC Comics) – I love this all ages series and this latest graphic novel is adorable.
JLA/Doom Patrol Special #1 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – “Milk Wars” begins! I have no idea what this is about or what to expect, but I’m intrigued.
Motherlands #1 (Vertigo) – A future where bounty hunters are celebrities and parallel worlds exist. It all sounds really interesting and fun.
Quantum and Woody #2 (Valiant) – Speaking of fun… the worst superhero partners in the world are also the most entertaining. Superhero action that constantly puts a smile to my face and gets me to laugh. So happy these two are back.
