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.
The Avant-Guards #5 (BOOM! Studios/BOOM! Box) – This series has been fantastic and a lot of fun following an upstart college basketball team. You get a new issue and the first trade out this week!
Bone Parish #9 (BOOM! Studios) – A mix of horror and crime, this is a comic that’s delivered with every issue. The concept of a drug made from the ground up dead plus the crime family aspect is such an amazing mix.
Clue: Candlestick #1 (IDW Publishing) – We’re board game fans, so this makes the list because we’re intrigued as to what it is.
Drawing Blood: Spilled Ink #1 (Kevin Eastman Studios) – One of two releases from Kevin Eastman this week. This is his return to indie comics and this release is a look at the turbulent life and times of a once-successfull cartoonist…. Hmmmm. Eastman co-created this with David Avallone.
The Flash #71 (DC Comics) – “Year One” continues!
The Goon #2 (Albatross Funnybooks) – Eric Powell’s The Goon is always fun with a mix of horror and a Popeye vibe. Love it!
Radically Rearranged Ronin Ragdolls (Kevin Eastman Studios) – The other Eastman comic out this week. This one is the story-within-the-story about three crime-fighting mutant cats that launched a franchise. Sound familiar?
Road of Bones #1 (IDW Publishing) – A Russian prisoner must escape a gulag and survive in a frozen tundra with the help of his childhood fantasy story. It sounds really interesting to us.
Wage Slaves (Conundrum Press) – Daria Bogdanska’s autobiographical story about attempting to build a life in Malmö and a battle that leads to fairer work practices for people in her community.
X-Force #8 (Marvel) – A fun throwback to some classic X-Force that picks up the loose threads from recent X-events. Stryfe is back… nuff said.
