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.
Blackbird #1 2nd Printing (Image Comics) – Who doesn’t love a good new-noir with a supernatural twist and a female lead? They’re reprinting the first issue with the premiere of the 2nd, so if it’s as fun as it sounds , you can get all caught up.
Border Town #3 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – It’s a bit of Scooby-Doo and Buffy, set in a world we can relate to and featuring characters and monsters we rarely see. So far, it’s bringing Vertigo back to the excellence you expect from the imprint.
Death of the Inhumans #5 (Marvel) – How will this one end? We have no idea but this event that we initially rolled our eyes about has been amazing and exceeded expectations in every way.
Doctor Who: The 13th Doctor #1 (Titan Comics) – If it’s half as good as the latest series, then we’re all in.
The Empty Man #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Cullen Bunn’s horror series returns. Bunn is a master at horror and this one mixes the cold reality of an X-Files/FBI vibe with slasher-ish horror. It’s also being worked on as a film, so grab this and say you were cool before the film.
The Green Lantern #1 (DC Comics) – Grant Morrison and Liam Sharp take on the classic character bringing it back to its “police” roots.
Harley Quinn #53 (DC Comics) – Harley and Tiny Tina on a road trip, sounds like a fun ride for some light reading on this long weekend.
James Bond 007 #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Greg Pak writing James Bond? Yeah, we’re sold on that alone.
No Angel TP (Black Mask Studio) – Collecting issues 1-4, it’s a great series and now you can get in on the ground floor.
Outer Darkness #1 (Image Comics) – A new series from John Layman and Afu Chan is a mix of sci-fi and horror that’s focused on mankind colonizing the galaxy and discovering all sorts of horrors.
Spider-Geddon #3 (Marvel) – The event has been fantastic so far with each issue delivering pure action and excitement and just delivering on the multiverse of possibilities. We’re expecting more of the same (which is good).
Suicide Squad Black Files #1 (DC Comics) – A new arc “Revenge of Konrad” is kicking off this week!
Transformers: Lost Light #25 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Transformers line is wrapping up with an unknown future and this issue is this series’ finale. We loved the off the wall stories and we’re expecting a bit more heart and emotion than you’d expect from robots who change into things.
Wet Hot American Summer (BOOM! Studios) – The cult classic film comes to comics in this original graphic novel. We have no idea what to expect but we’re intrigued in how the humor of the film (and Netflix series) translates to the printed page.
The Wicked + The Divine Funnies #1 (Image Comics) – A cute little one shot from the W+D team for a bit of fun before our beloved series comes to an end.
The Wrong Earth #3 (AHOY Comics) – AHOY Comics has been knocking it out of the park with comics that teach us to expect more. This superhero focused series has two heroes from different Earths swap places. To see the two styles, in both attitude and art, is an impressive accomplishment that makes this comic of the year material.
X-23 #6 (Marvel) – A fun back to school undercover mission with the baddest member of the X-Men.
