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.
AfterShock Shock Vol. 2 (AfterShock) – The anthology comic has entries from RL Stine, Garth Ennis, Jim Starlin, Larry Stroman, Szymon Kudranski, Marguerite Bennett, Jill Thompson, and more… like a brand new Flaming Carrot stroy by Bob Burden!
Ascender #3 (Image Comics) – The series is a fantastic follow Up to Descender and instead of taking on technology, this one focuses on magic. It’s an interesting opposite side of the same coin.
Canto #1 (IDW Publishing) – There’s been a lot of hype around this six-issue miniseries. An enslaved people have had their hearts replaced with clocks and Canto must brave the world to get a girl back her heart.
The Goon #3 (Albatross Funnybooks) – The Goon is an amazing mix of humor, action, and horror, and its return has been fantastic. So much fun with every issue. It’s a horror-ish Popeye and a must for comic fans.
Marilyn Manor #1 (IDW Publishing/Black Crown) – The President’s daughter throws a rager at the White House in 1981… yeah, we’re in for this one.
Operation Overlord #1 (Rebellion/2000AD) – The graphic novel series is translated into English for the first time. It’s four tales set during the Normandy landing on D-Day. Sounds really interesting and really good timing for release.
Road of Bones #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue was amazing as prisoners attempt to escape a Russian gulag and the infusion of horror makes it something else.
Samurai Grandpa #1 (Source Point Press) – A retired samurai must wield his blade again to save his granddaughter. It just sounds fun and the cover looks fantastic.
Steel Cage #1 (AHOY Comics) – Three comic stories enter and one leaves! Fans can read this comic and then vote as to which story they want to become a series after!
Transformers/Ghostbusters #1 (IDW Publishing) – Both properties are celebrating 35 years this year and coming together for this miniseries. The concept sounds silly but we’re in to see where it goes.
