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.
Bad Luck Chuck #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – The concept of a person who rents out their bad luck for profit sounds too funny, and original, to not check out.
Dial H for Hero #1 (DC Comics/Wonder Comics) – The classic character returns with Sam Humphries and Joe Quinones in charge. It’s always been a fun concept, gaining power from dialing a phone, and hopefully this six-issue series stands out.
Glow #1 (IDW Publishing) – The Netflix show comes to comics and we’re so excited to get some more wrestling comics!
The Handmaids Tale (Doubleday Books) – The classic novel is adapted as a graphic novel.
Mera: Tidebreaker (DC Comics/DC Ink) – DC’s dive into young adult entertainment with this first graphic novel in their new DC Ink line. Focused on Mera, the graphic novel has her taking control of her destiny.
Sabrina the Teenage Witch #1 (Archie Comics) – The classic character gets the spotlight in a brand new series! With the Netflix series and her inclusion in the main Archie series, we’re intrigued by what this one is.
The Scar (Fantagraphics) – In the summer of 2017, cartoonist Andrea Ferraris and director Renato Chiocca traveled to southern Arizona to witness the tense situation along the US-Mexico border firsthand.
Super Sons: The Polarshield Project (DC Comics/DC Zoom) – DC Zoom focuses on middle grade readers and this graphic novel debuts the line. We always love the Super Sons and get excited in anything they’re in.
Synergy: Hasbro Creators Showcase (IDW Publishing) – Celebrating the female creators who have made Hasbro’s properties great. Anthologies rule!
Transformers #2 (IDW Publishing) – Transformers are back in a new series exploring the early years of Cybertron and we’re so excited about it all.
