Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!
Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) 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 week. It’s the third week of new comics after the shutdown and that also means the return of Marvel!
Adventureman #1 (Image Comics) – Matt Fraction, Terry Dodson, and Rachel Dodson come together for this pulp adventure about a hero who was forgotten and an imagination that spans decades. Read our review.
Archangel 8 #2 (AWA Studios) – Heaven and Hell wage war for the souls of mankind.
Artemis and the Assassin #2 (Aftershock) – A time traveling adventure that’s over the top exciting.
