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.
Assassin Nation #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was just some solid uber violence and a lot of fun. How to prevent getting assassinated? By hiring the best assassins to protect you!
Black Badge #9 (BOOM! Studios) – Have you been reading this series which is basically the Scouts as assassins? No? This could be a good issue to start and check out.
Major X #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was divisive but we’d be lying if we didn’t want to see where Rob Liefeld’s latest X-Universe entry was going.
Planet of the Nerds #1 (AHOY Comics) – AHOY always delivers a fun read. This series takes jocks and transports them to modern times where nerds rule! There’s a lot of potential for this one.
Transformers #3 (IDW Publishing) – While not as good as the previous volume, we really want to see the build up to the Civil War and what Cybertron was like before all of that.
Uncanny X-Men #16 (Marvel) – The last issue shook up a lot and at this point we have no idea where this is all going. So good.
War of the Realms #2/War of the Realms: The Punisher #1/War of the Realms: War Scrolls #1 (Marvel) – While we haven’t been too hyped so far for this event, we’re still curious as to where it goes and what the tie-in miniseries bring to the story.
Xena: Warrior Princess #1 (Dynamite) – We’re always excited to see the popular character return to comics.
