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.
Astronauts: Women on the Final Frontier (First Second) – A graphic novel that explores the first women in space. Entertaining and educational.
Criminal #12 (Image Comics) – It’s the end of the story arc but this series is so good it should be on your pulllist anyways. Criminal is a must for comic fans, especially those who enjoy crime/noir stories.
Ginseng Roots #3 (Uncivilized Comics) – Craig Thompson’s autobiographical comic series about growing up around the ginseng industry. It’s very educational and also rather meta at times. Beautiful art and interesting narrative makes this series of the year material.
Hawkeye Freefall #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a lot of fun picking up the banter and pacing of the previous Hawkeye series. The mystery of who the new Ronin is has us really intrigued.
Protector #1 (Image Comics) – A new sci-fi series that mixes Cona, Mad Max, and The Expanse and takes place in a far-future North America. A tribe must deal with an old-world demon.
Quantum and Woody #1 (Valiant) – The world’s worst superheroes are back and as always it’s chaotic, funny, and a hell of a lot of fun.
Ravencroft #1 (Marvel) – A piece of the bigger puzzle Marvel is putting together. Ravencroft is re-opened and where this goes and where this leads has us scratching our heads.
Shadow of the Batgirl (DC Comics) – DC has been killing it with their graphic novels for young readers. Batgirl is missing and Cassandra Cain attempts to take on the heroic mantle.
