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.
It’s a short week of releases with the holiday and you can get every single issue for under $50! So, instead of picking which you should get, we’re doing something a little bit different with going over what they are and why you should check out each release!
Atomic Robo & Dawn of a New Era #1 (IDW Publishing) – Never experienced the humor of Atomic Robo? It’s just a fun series and a #1 is always a good excuse to start.
Captain Marvel #1 (Marvel) – Carol is back on Earth and this debut mixes humor and action. A great debut with an intriguing ending.
