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.
Abbott #2 (BOOM! Studios) – If you read the first issue you know why we’re excited for the second. This series mixes horror and social consciousness all set in 1970s Detroit.
Avengers #682 (Marvel) – “No Surrender” has been a success so far living up to the build up and hype. It’s the rare recent event that hasn’t let us down. Another action packed entry with three new players entering the game.
Calexit #2 (Black Mask Studios) – There’s been a long delay since the first issue but we’re hyped to see if this second issue can get things moving after a slightly overhyped first. Great concept, now it’s time to see if it delivers on the promise.
Days of Hate #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was absolutely amazing with intertwining stories set in the future that’s not all that different than ours. Taking on extremism on all sides, this series entertains and makes you think.
Long Lost #4 (Scout Comics) – Absolutely fantastic and a series that’s under the radar. A horror/psychological comic that’s a must get.
Mera: Queen of Atlantis #1 (DC Comics) – Mera gets the spotlight in this miniseries that focuses on her newish status quo and dealing with the fallout from Aquaman.
Motor Girl Omnibus (Abstract Studios) – If you missed the series by Terry Moore get the entirety here! You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll be entertained.
Rough Riders: Ride or Die #1 (AfterShock Comics) – Always entertaining, this series mixes fact and fiction and some historical figures kick some ass.
The Terrifics #1 (DC Comics) – The latest from DC’s “New Age of Heroes” puts together a rag-tag bunch to explore the Dark Multiverse. The first issue has a Fantastic Four vibe and it works!
The Wilds #1 (Black Mask Studios) – A disease has ravaged the world and society must pick up the pieces. We’ve seen the concept numerous times but this one focuses on the characters and delivers a lot of heart.
