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: Quantum & Woody #6 (Valiant) – Eliot Rahal takes over writing duties for the series and, as much as I enjoyed Daniel Kibblesmith, I am so excited to see what Rahal will bring to the table. So excited, in fact, that I want to read this more than Harbinger Wars 2 #1. But not by much.
Harbinger Wars 2 #1 (Valiant) – Valiant’s latest big even is here, with reverberations that will be felt across the line. Plus, this looks beautiful.
The Last Siege #1 (Image) – Game of Thrones meets spaghetti western? Hell yeah – this could either be awesome or awfully awesome… either way I’m in.
Pestilence: Story Of Satan #1 (Aftershock) – With the first volume re-imagining the bubonic plague as a zombie infestation, and turning into a really good read, I’m excited to see what’s in store for this series. I’d be very okay with more of the same.
Top Pick: Man of Steel #1 (DC Comics) – While I haven’t been too excited about Brian Michael Bendis’ Superman so far this first issue will define his direction and give us an idea of where he plans on taking the character. This will be a key issue, good or bad, for some time, so if you care about the character, this is one you’ll need to get.
Amazing Spider-Man #800 (Marvel) – Dan Slott’s run on Spider-Man is winding down and this is the culmination of so much of that.
Blackwood #1 (Dark Horse) – Evan Dorkin and Veronica Fish… I’m sold.
Justice League: No Justice #4 (DC Comics) – Much like above, this comic will help define the direction of the Justice League and what comes next. It’ll be a key read for years to come.
Transformers: Optimus Prime #19 (IDW Publishing) – The reveals have been amazing and I’m hooked for it all. An amazing run on Transformers is all coming together here.
