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.
Alexandria Ocasio Cortez & the Freshman Force: Who Dis? (Devil’s Due Comics) – We’re a sucker for these types of comics and we’ll admit the political nerds in us are really interested in seeing exactly what’s within the pages of this issue.
All-Time Comics Zerosis Deathscape #0 (Floating World Comics) – An all-new five issue miniseries and if it’s like the previous releases, we’re psyched. This superhero world is a mix of modern and classic and just a lot of pulp action fun.
Black Badge #10 (BOOM! Studios) – One of the best comics on the market, it’s a twisted take on a Boy Scouts like group that’s used to recruit and train young assassins. You can learn more about the history of the program here!
Fathom Vol. 8 #1 (Aspen Comics) – Aspen has been hit and miss lately with a few false starts over the years but they seem to be more focused this time and we’re excited to see if this new volume reflects a renewed Aspen.
Giant-Man #1 (Marvel) – The many individuals who have used that name come together in this War of the Realms tie-in and we’re kind of excited for it.
Last Stop on the Red Line #1 (Dark Horse) – A supernatural crime story from Paul Maybury and Sam Lotfi that has us really intrigued to check it out.
Marvel Action: Spider-Man #4 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Marvel line has been great for kids and each issue a lot of fun. So, check it out, especially if you’re looking for comics for kids.
Planet of the Nerds #2 (AHOY Comics) – The first issue was funny and AHOY packs so much in each and every issue they put out. Just a great value for your dollar.
Science Comics: Cars, Engines that Move You (First Second) – First Second’s graphic novels in this line are fantastic if you want to learn more about the topic. This is solid for kids and adults who want to learn.
War of the Realms #4/War of the Realms: Spider-Man & the League of Realms #1/War of the Realms: Strikeforce – War Avengers #1 (Marvel) – We’re suckers for this, we’ll be honest. The event has been very hit and miss but we’re hoping it turns around. It has to, right?
