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.
Achilles Inc. #3 (Source Point Press) – The concept of superheroes taking jobs from every day people is intriguing. The layered approach to it is what’s really impressive about this series. Enjoy it for what it is or dive deeper into the political/socio commentary, it’s enjoyable either way.
Banjax #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – A superhero has learned he’s dying and goes all out due to it. Yeah, we’re in.
Batman and the Outsiders #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue had some fantastic art and good team dynamic. We want to see where it all goes from there.
The Batman Who Laughs #6 (DC Comics) – We’ve gotten this far. We want to see how the team wraps this one up and brings it all together.
Event Leviathan #1 (DC Comics) – DC’s mini-event kicks off here and already is shaking up the DC Universe. We’re excited to see how this one goes and what it’ll lead to.
Five Years #2 (Abstract Studios) – Terry Moore brings so much of what he’s done together. This is one for the fans of his work and it’s absolutely worth it.
Grumble #7 (Albatross Funnybooks) – What comics should be, pure fun. Grab this entire series.
Jughead Time Police #1 (Archie Comics) – The concept sounds insane. Everything you need to know is in the title. We’re in.
The Ride: Burning Desire #1 (Image Comics) – The series just sounds like solid noir-ish entertainment with a former detective out of prison working as a bouncer with enemies looking to settle a score.
Silver Surfer: Black #1 (Marvel) – We’ve read it. It’s fantastic, especially for those who have been reading Donny Cates’ work. Tradd Moore’s art is fantastic too, especially with Dave Stewart’s colors.
Sonata #1 (Image Comics/Shadowline) – Two cultures clash on a planet they each believe is their Promised Land. Nope, no idea what this is alluding to.
Spencer and Locke 2 #3 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – Over the top noir/crime action that lampoons/loves the comics of our childhood.
Trust Fall #1 (AfterShock) – The series mixes superpowers and crime in what sounds like a really intriguing concept. There’s a hook here that’s really unique and stands out. We’re not spoiling it.
Voracious: Appetite for Destruction #2 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – One of the best kept secrets in comics. Start from the beginning (the first volume) or at least the first issue of this series to see what you’re missing. To tell you why would spoil the fun.
