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.
Bad Reception #2 (Aftershock) – The first issue was fantastic with an Agatha Christie vibe and commentary on modern technology. Hoping for more of the same with the second issue.
Batman/Superman #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue setting up the next major story of corrupted heroes was surprisingly good. With an evil Shazam now staring at our heroes, this issue should be full of action and excitement.
Bloodshot #1 (Valiant) – It’s a new beginning for the classic character as Valiant begins to focus on the upcoming film.
Chris Ware’s Rusty Brown (Pantheon Books) – Chris Ware’s latest highly anticipated graphic novel that takes on nothing less than humanity and existence.
Criminal #8 (Image Comics) – Stil one of the best comics on the market. If you like crime stories, it’s a must get.
Frogcatchers (Gallery 13) – Jeff Lemire’s latest graphic novel is a surreal descent into one man’s psychosis.
Harleen #1 (DC Comics/DC’s Black Label) – Stejpan Sejic takes on Harley Quinn and we’re beyond excited to see the result.
Meyer (Humanoids) – An imaginary biography of the legendary Jewish mobster as he attempts to organize his last con job. It just sounds fun.
New Mutants: War Children #1 (Marvel) – Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz reteam for this never before told story of the New Mutants’ past.
The Plot #1 (Vault Comics) – A new horror story from Michael Moreci, Tim Daniel, and Josh Hixson in time for Halloween.
Powers of X #5 (Marvel) – We’ve been debating a lot internally about this series but no matter good or bad, we all want to see where this goes.
Red Winter #3 (Scout Comics) – We thought this was a straight-up gangster series set in Russia but the end of the second issue has our heads still spinning and wanting to see what’s next.
Relics of Youth #1 (Vault Comics) – Teenagers around the world deam of a mysterious island. Then one day they all wake up with tattoos only six of them can see. It’s a mysterious discovery of an unknown paradise.
SFSX #1 (Image Comics) – This was to be a part of Vertigo’s relaunch but not so much. That alone has us intrigued.
Snowpiercer: Extinction (Titan Comics) – A prequel to the fantastic sci-fi series. We love the originals and can’t wait for anything new in this universe.
Strikeforce #1 (Marvel) – Blade, Angela, Spider-Woman, Wiccan, the Winter Soldier, Monica Rambeau and Daimon Hellstrom join forces and that lineup alone has us excited.
Transformers Galaxies #1 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Transformers relaunch has a bit mixed in quality but a new series focused on the Constructicans has us intrigued.
