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.
All-America Comix (Image Comics) – Joe Casey and Dustin Nguyen reteam for this new hero that has been teased for quite some time. We’re excited that we finally get to see what the hype was all about.
Billionaire Island #2 (AHOY Comics) – The infiltration of Billionaire Island is on! We’re totally here for it in this biting satire from Mark Russell and Steve Pugh.
Child Star (:01 First Second) – Box Brown’s graphic novel is a biography of Owen Eugene, a fictional 1980s child actor. Brown’s work is amazing and it’s never to be missed.
The Goon #11 (Albatross Funnybooks) – The Goon is like an over the top Popeye. Always funny and entertaining it’s filled with action and humor and most importantly, fun.
Mystery (Van Ryder Games) – We came across this interesting concept at Gen Con last year. It’s a mix of graphic novel and choose your own adventure/roleplaying game. A really great concept and idea.
Nailbiter Returns #2 (Image Comics) – The horror comic is back and the first issue was like revisiting an old friend, in that horror movie sequel sort of way.
Negan Lives #1 (Image Comics/Skybound) – We’re intrigued by this surprise release set in the world of The Walking Dead.
Streamliner Vol. 1 (Magnetic Press) – The action series from Fane gets collected. “An abandoned stretch of road in the middle of the desert, a rusty old gas station, and a plume of dust rising in the distance…” That intro description alone has us interested.
Vampire State Building (Ablaze) – The vampire genre gets mixed with a bit of Die Hard as Vampires take over the Empire State Building and a group of survivors attempt to escape.
