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.
Hawkman #1 (DC Comics) – After a high profile in Dark Nights: Metal, we’re intrigued to see where DC takes this classic character.
The Magic Order #1 (Millarworld/Netflix/Image Comics) – A new series from Mark Millar and the first original since his deal with Netflix. We’re anticipating to see what he’s come up with.
Marvel Rising Alpa #1 (Marvel) – It feels like Marvel’s attempt to recreate DC’s success with their DC Super Hero Girls line and we’re totally fine with it. Bring it.
Oblivion Song #4 (Skybound Entertainment/Image Comics) – Have you been reading this series? It’s a fantastic layered story that reflects upon the real world.
Plastic Man #1 (DC Comics) – Gail Simone steps in to take on the character in this entertaining start. Backed up by art by Adriana Melo the first issue is a perfect blend of humor, noir, and superheroics.
Skip to the End (Insight Comics) – Like music? Like comics? Then get this collection of the series that blends the two and is a love letter to Nirvana.
Stellar #1 (Skybound Entertainment/Image Comics) – A new series from Skybound written by Joseph Keatinge and art by Bret Blevins. It’s a sci-fi adventure featuring a bounty hunter and since it’s Skybound, we’re expecting entertainment.
Thor #1 (Marvel) – We’ve read it and the epic continues. And it is epic and it is amazing. The “first” issue picks up the ongoing narrative of Jason Aaron but is also accessible for new readers as well.
Transformers: Lost Light #18 (IDW Publishing) – Where is it all going!? We want to know!!!!
Weatherman #1 (Image Comics) – After committing a terrorist act that wipes out almost the entire population of Earth, Nathan goes on the run. But did he commit the crime? The concept is interesting but it’s the creative team of Jody LeHeup and Nathan Fox that has this as a must read.
