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.
Alien: Original Screenplay #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – The original screenplay gets turned into a comic and we’re excited to see what the result is.
Bad Mother #1 (AWA Studios) – A suburban mom’s kid goes missing and she goes on a mission to get her back. There’s an 80s tinge to the concept we’re digging.
DCeased: Dead Planet #2 (DC Comics) – DC’s best line of comics they’ve got going right now.
Disaster, Inc. #2 (AfterShock) – The series about disaster tourism sounded interesting but the supernatural twist has us really intrigued.
Empyre #4 (Marvel) – The summer event has been getting better with each issue and with no preview, Marvel has something up their sleeve.
Far Sector #7 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – The series has been amazing with a mix of socio-political/action/mystery/romance. This issue leans a little heavier into the action but it’s so good and visually amazing.
Horizon Zero Dawn #1 (Titan Comics) – We haven’t played the video game but know the visuals and the world and we’re intrigued how it’s adapted into comics. Some massive potential here.
My Little Pony/Transformers #1 (IDW Publishing) – It’s just so crazy, it might work.
Undiscovered Country #7 (Image Comics) – This series has been off the wall insane and we seriously have no idea of what’s next.
Vampire: The Masquerade #1 (Vault Comics) – Vault isn’t a publisher we think of when it comes to licensed comics but what they have put out matches perfectly for what we’d want in a comic based on the popular roleplaying game.
