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.
Ascender #2 (Image Comics) – Did you read the first issue? If you did, you know why this is on our list. The follow up to Descender does for magic and fantasy what that series did for sci-fi.
Batman: Last Knight on Earth #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo team again for Batman’s final story.
Doomsday Clock #10 (DC Comics) – We’ve already read the issue and this is what we’ve been waiting for. A ho-hum event finally gets good and there’s honestly some fantastic stuff explored here.
Heroes in Crisis #9 (DC Comics) – We’ve already read this one too and while it doesn’t quite stick the landing it is a decent ending to this rocky event.
Killer Groove #1 (Aftershock) – It’s rock ‘n’ roll crime set in the 70s and the mix of music and crime alone has us excited to check this out.
Sham #1 (Source Point Press) – It’s public domain comics rewritten for our entertainment.
She Said Destroy #1 (Vault Comics) – Goddesses and their worshippers battle!
Spencer & Locke 2 #2 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – This series has been rocking it in its second volume which ups the action and has one hell of a villain.
Star Trek: Year Five #2 (IDW Publishing) – Are you a Star Trek fan? We are, and we’re finally getting our fifth year of the mission!!!
Stranger Things: Six #1 (Dark Horse) – The popular series comes to comics and we’re intrigued to see how comics expands the world and characters.
Superman: Leviathan Rising Special #1 (DC Comics) – This seems like it’s going to be a pretty big deal as far as a storyline.
This Was Our Pact (First Second) – Stand by Me meets My Neighbor Totoro in this astonishing, magical-realist adventure story for middle-grade readers. Yeah, we’re sold on that description.
Voracious: Appetite For Destruction #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – If you haven’t read the previous two volumes, you’re missing out. This series has some solid twists and turns about a chef whose secret incredients are dinosaurs. We’re not ruining it.
Wailing Blade #1 (Comixtribe) – We backed this series on Kickstarter as it reminded us a bit of Battlechasers in the exaggerated fantasy style. It’s some fun action in an oversized first issue.
X-Men: Grand Design – X-Tinction #1 (Marvel) – Ed Piskor continues his amazing take on the X-Men’s history.
