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.

Batman and the Outsiders #1 (DC Comics) – Delayed, but it’s finally here and we’re beyond excited to check out this new series, especially since writer Bryan Edward Hill and artist Dexter Soy are involved.

The Batman Who Laughs #5 (DC Comics) – The series so far has been solid but it’s also clear that this character is going to impact the entire DC Universe for some time. This is going to be an important miniseries that’s going to set off a lot.

Copra Vol. 2 (Image Comics) – If you missed this series at its previous publisher, you have no excuse now. It’s so good! Think indie Suicide Squad.

Katusha (Dead Reckoning) – Dead Reckoning has been doing awesome releasing war comics and this one focused on the German invasion of the Soviet Union through a comining-of-age story sounds really interesting.

Metalshark Bro #1 (Scout Comics) – We’ll be honest, we know little about this debut issue but the cover has a shark rocking out with a guitar. Yes please!

Monarchs (Scout Comics) – We read the first issue when it was released and enjoyed the video game/comic blend. Now we get a chance to read the entire series.

Red Sonja & Vampirella Meet Betty & Veronica #1 (Dynamite Entertainment/Archie Comics) – It sounds so out there we’re beyond excited for it.

Six Days: The Incredible Story of D-Days Lost Chapter (DC Comics/Vertigo) – A true story about World War II. We’ve read it and it’s really fantastic. If you like war stories, this is a must graphic novel.

War of the Realms: New Agents of Atlas #1 (Marvel) – This is going to be an important issue with lots of characters making their debut.

Waves (BOOM! Studios) – A graphic novel about the difficulties of pregnancy. An emotional read.
