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.
Charlie’s Angels #1 (Dynamite) – While the publisher can be hit and miss, we’re excited to see this property back in comics and it’s long overdue. Hoping for the best but this is one that’s high on our read pile.
Dodge City #4 (BOOM! Studios) – A comic about dodge ball? It works and it’s a lot of fun to read. So far the comic has focused on interesting characters and has avoided predictable twists to keep readers on their toes.
Final Street #1 (Devil’s Due) – The cover, the logo, it reminds us of the classic beat’em-up side scrolling video games of our youth. That’s enough to get us excited to check this one out.
The Flash #49 (DC Comics) – “The Flash War” has been excellent so far. The story has sped along at breakneck speed (pun intended) and its impact feels like it’s going to be huge.
Man of Steel #5 (DC Comics) – We’ve enjoyed Brian Michael Bendis’ take on Superman so far. The miniseries has been great in its depiction of the character, though the action has been a bit mixed. Still, this is the defining series as to where the character is going for the next few years at least.
Multiple Man #1 (Marvel) – Maddrox is back? Dead. Alive. Dead. We’re honestly not sure the status of Jamie Maddrox so we’re intrigued to see what this series will be about.
Sentry #1 (Marvel) – The Sentry was never a character we cared for in the past but Jeff Lemire taking him on has us really excited.
Shadow Roads #1 (Oni Press) – The follow up to Cullen Bunn and Brian Hurtt’s The Sixth Gun has us excited. The fantasy western was fantastic and we’re expecting more of the same.
Thor #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fun. Lots of fun. Thor is a bit humbled and things are being figured out post major events. Add in a lot of humor and it’s an entertaining series so far and one that’s shot up to the top of our read pile.
X-O Manowar (2017) #16 (Valiant Entertainment) – Everything Valiant has been putting out is quality and this series is one of their best. Just fantastic all around.
