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.
After Houdini (Insight Comics) – Harry Houdini is a top-secret operative for the US Government during World War I and the government needs his son to take his place! Sounds like fun to us!
Captain America #4 (Marvel) – Ta-Nehisi Coates’ run on Captain America has been amazing so far and we’re expecting no less from this issue. It’s a perfect blend of action and depth.
Infinite Dark #1 (Top Cow Productions/Image Comics) – The universe has ended and humanity exists on a ship whose occupants await the next Big Bang. But, there’s a murder that needs to be investigated. The concept sounds amazing and original and we’re totally in.
Infinity Wars #4 (Marvel) – The event has been much better than expected and with everything warped, we want to know what what happens next.
Last Space Race #1 (AfterShock Comics) – The pitch for the series which sounds a bit like the Right Stuff and X-Files has us intrigued to find out more about this.
My Heroes Have Always Been Junkies (Image Comics) – Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips with an original graphic novel. Nuff said.
Ruinworld #4 (BOOM! Studios) – Really fun fantasy for all-ages.
Spider-Geddon #1 (Marvel) – Marvel has been putting together a solid lead up to this even which again brings together various Spider-people from around the Multiverse.
Transformers: Unicron #5 (IDW Publishing) – Things are wrapping up and it looks like everyone is dying. This is definitely the dark before the light as IDW brings to a close an epic run of the Transformers that’s been years in the making.
The Wrong Earth #2 (AHOY Comics) – The first issue of this series was amazing which has two heroes switching places with their multiverse self. Image grim and gritty mixed with a happier version. Add in so much more material in the comic and you’ve got a hell of a package from a publisher that’s showing we should expect more from comics.
