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.
2020 Machine Man #1 (Marvel) – The 2020 story has been just ok but Marvel has been doing some interesting stuff with Machine Man and we want to see where they take this classic character.
Archie Meets the B-52s #1 (Archie Comics) – “Rock Lobster,” nuff said.
Bang #1 (Dark Horse) – Matt Kindt and Wilfredo Torres is all we need to have us excited about this secret agent/action/mystery/altered reality series.
Canopus #1 (Scout Comics) – An amazing sci-fi debut that’s an absolute must for those that enjoy comics not by the big two. Helen wakes up on an alien planet with no memories beyond a haze and an urgency to return to Earth.
DCeased Unkillables #1 (DC Comics) – The second volume of this new take on the classic “zombie/apocalypse” genre. This time, it’s the villains in the spotlight.
Doctor Tomorrow #1 (Valiant) – A fantastic debut with a character that will hopefully take off. A great addition to the Valiant Universe.
Godkillers #1 (Aftershock) – A special forces unit that fights insurgents who use mythological creatures as weapons of mass destruction. The concept sounds awesome.
The Goon #8 (Albatross Funnybooks) – The Goon is one of the most consistently entertaining comics on the market. Think of it as an over the top Popeye.
Hellboy & the BPRD: Return of Effie Kolb #1 (Dark Horse) – A continuation of the classic “The Crooked Man” tale. Hellboy is always entertaining.
Marvel’s Voices #1 (Marvel) – A one-shot comic that features a whole lot of interesting creators taking on a wide range of characters.
On the Stump #1 (Image Comics) – Elections are now decided by hand-to-hand combat and that concept alone has us all in.
Plunge #1 (DC Comics/Hill House Comics) – A sunk ship sends out a distress signal 40 years after it went missing. Sounds like a great horror concept.
Savage Bastards #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – A tale of revenge and betrayal set in 1873. You don’t see a lot of “Western” comics anymore, so we’re always intrigued to check out a new one.
Undiscovered Country #4 (Image Comics) – So far, this series has been amazing blending together so many differnet concepts. We have no idea where this mystery will all go but it’s a hell of a ride so far.
Wolverine #1 (Marvel) – An oversized issue that’s worth the oversized price.
