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.
Chrononauts: Futureshock #1, Chrononauts: Futureshock #2, Chrononauts: Futureshock #3, Chrononauts: Futureshock #4 (Image Comics) – The latest from Millarworld is a new volume of Chrononauts, his time travel series. All issues are being released the same day which is interesting as far distribution and we’re intrigued to see how the series holds up this way…. and sales down the road.
Basketful of Heads #1 (DC Comics/Hill House Comics) – The comic line by writer Joe Hill kicks off! The horror focused line (and this series) seems like a perfect match for the Halloween season and we’re always excited for more comics by Joe Hill.
Bloodshot (2019) #2 (Valiant) – The trailer for next year’s film is out and if you want to hop on the bandwagon, this is a good series to start with.
Excalibur #1 (Marvel) – The X-Men dip into the fantasy genre.
Fantastic Four: Grand Design #1 (Marvel) – The X-Men version of this was a lot of fun and compacted their history in some easily digestible comics. This is more of the same focused on Marvel’s First Family!
Giant Days: As Time Goes By #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Wrapping up the beloved series!
Harleen #2 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – The first issue of the series was interesting in that it cast Harleen Quinn as a profiler in more of a police procedural. It’s a different take and we’re interested in seeing more but still a bit skeptical.
Joker: Killer Smile #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino… yes please!
Last God #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – A new fantasy original series from…. DC!? Yeah, we’re intrigued by this due to the creative team and the publisher.
Marvel Zombies: Resurrection #1 (Marvel) – We’re in the Halloween mood and zombies will help with that. We’re hoping for a new spin on this Marvel favorite property.
Red Goblin: Red Death #1 (Marvel) – It’s a comic we didn’t know we needed and we’re still not sure we do but we’re intrigued. The series is focused on Norman’s time as the Red Goblin that we haven’t seen.
Red Winter #4 (Scout Comics) – We love noir/crime comics and this one has stood out with twists and turns involving the Russian mob… in Russia. An intriguing premise and unique setting has us excited for each issue.
Roku #1 (Valiant) – The villain gets her own series with some “John Wick” style action!
Snow White Zombie Apocalypse (Scout Comics) – It’s Snow White with a zombie apocalypse twist!
Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Death of Superman #1 (DC Comics) – The first “Tales From” knocked it out of the park and seems to be important for the meta story going on at DC. We’re hoping for more of the same with this issue.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #99 (IDW Publishing) – We’re one issue away from the big issue #100! “City at War” rages on.
Vampire State Building #2 (Ablaze) – The first issue was fantastic with a solid vampire premise as they descend upon the Empire State Building where evil has been buried.
Wolvenheart #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – The series sounds like Doctor Who meets Castelvania and that sounds awesome.
