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.

Backfired #1 (Source Point Press) – The concept of this series sounds interesting. It’s about a writer who needs to perfect the pitch for his comic while balancing his life.

Bad Reception #5 (AfterShock) – The finale of this series that’s been fantastic every issue. Who will survive this slasher series? We can’t wait to find out!

Batman #95 (DC Comics) – The Joker War is ramping up and with Wayne Enterprise siezed by the Joker, it leaves Batman and Bruce Wayne in a difficult spot.

Billionaire Island #3 (AHOY Comics) – It’s an attempt to escape the island in this perfectly timed satire.
Canopus #4 (Scout Comics) – All of the mysteries are revealed in this final issue of the series. Expect this one to be on quite a few “best of” lists for the year.

Hellions #2 (Marvel) – A Suicide Squad like series with troubled Mutants. The first issue was really solid and it’ll be interesting to see how justice is handled in Krakoa with this group.

No Heroine #1 (Source Point Press) – It’s a “hot” comic already going for well over cover on the secondary market. Drugs. Vampires. Punk rock. Clawing her way to her 90th day sober, Kayla sets out to find her missing friend, Sid – the one person she knows can keep her on the straight-and narrow.

Unrig (:01 First Second) – Elections and the political process are pretty broken. Find out whay that’s the case and what can be done in this educational graphic novel.

Vlad Dracul #1 (Scout Comics) – The story of the man behind the myth. It’ll be interesting to see how historically accurate this is and what new things we might learn.

Xira #1 (Red 5 Comics) – A story of a chimpanzee who has been experimented on her whole life and when she has a baby, she does what she can to get herself and child to freedom.

Yasmeen #1 (Scout Comics) – A refugee from ISIS, Yasmeen must learn to survive in a new country and society who fears and hates her while dealing with the horrors of her past.
