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 choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!
Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.
Asgardians of the Galaxy #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a lot of fun as it brought together an interesting mix of characters together as a team and delivered a nice reveal at the end. Where does it go from there? We’re excited to find out.
Batman/The Maxx #1 (IDW Publising) – Two classic characters are brought together and we’re expecting awesome.
Blackbird #1 (Image Comics) – A secret cabal of magic users exists in Los Angeles and the fact Sam Humphries is writing this new series is a bonus to an awesome idea.
Border Town #2 (DC Comics/Vertigo) – The first issue was a nice mix of Scooby-Doo and the Goonies with a Latinx twist to it all. We’re all in.
Dead Rabbit #1 (Image Comics) – A former stick-up man is back out of retirement. This is the type of noir/crime concept that has us excited to check it out.
Death of the Inhumans #4 (Marvel) – This event has been shaking up the Inhumans and we have no idea where it’s all going.
Death Orb #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – A new apocalyptic series from Ryan Ferrier featuring a character carving a bloody path as he attempts to save his wife and child.
Errand Boys #1 (Image Comics) – An intriguing series about a future where you run errands, possibly illegal, to make a living. A concept we’ve seen in some different ways recently, but this one’s style stands out.
Infinity Wars: Sleepwalker #1 (Marvel) – The classic character is back.
The Long Ranger Vol. 3 #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Mark Russell writing the Lone Ranger. We’re all in for that.
Me the People (Image Comics) – A collection of Pia Guerrera’s recent political cartoons.
Poser #2 (Waxwork Comics) – The first issue was solid horror with a music spin to it all. Just a solid slasher type story perfect for Halloween.
Rainbow Brite #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – The classic character is back in comics with Jeremy Whitley writing. Yeah, we’re sold on it.
Secret Coders Vol. 6 Monsters & Modules (First Second) – The series that mixes entertainment with education has a new volume and this is one we’ll always recommend.
Shatterstar #1 (Marvel) – The character is in the spotlight and we want to see where it goes. With a string of solid X character focused miniseries, we’re hoping this one is just as good.
Sparrowhawk #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Teen Victorian fairy fight club! Nuff said.
Superior Octopus #1 (Marvel) – We loved Doc Ock as Spider-Man so we want more!
Typhoid Fever: Spider-Man #1 (Marvel) – With the character of Typhoid Mary getting the spotlight in Iron Fist, we want to see where this miniseries takes her.
Umbrella Academy: Hotel Oblivion #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – We love the original series and are so happy this cooky comic about a dysfunctional family with superpowers is back.
The Walking Dead #184 (Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment) – The series has been having a resurgence with the introduction of a new community and we’re excited as to where it’s all going.
What If? Spider-Man #1/What If? X-Men #1 (Marvel) – We always loved this alternate history of Marvel comics. Now, to bring back What The!? too.
Wonder Woman/Justice League Dark: Witching Hour #1 (DC Comics) – It feels early for an event but so far DC’s horror focused series has been top notch.
Wonder Woman: Earth One Vol. 2 (DC Comics) – It’s been a while since we’ve had a standalone graphic novel in this series so each feels like an event and a must to check out.
X-Men: Black – Magneto #1 (Marvel) – Magneto back to being a villain? We can hope!
