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.
Batman: Three Jokers #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – After a long build up and teases, the first issue is here and it’s…. interesting.
Displacement (First Second) – A teenager is pulled back in time to witness her grandmother’s experiences in a WWII-era Japanese internment camp.
Flamer (Henry Holt) – Aiden heads to summer camp and navigates his feelings about being gay.
Ginseng Roots #6 (Uncivilized Comics) – Craig Thompson continues to explore his youth and it revolving around ginseng. A fascinating autobiography.
Hellions #3 (Marvel) – The most intriguing entry in Marvel’s new line of X-Men? The battle against the Goblin Queen continues.
Locke & Key: In Pale Battalions Go #1 (IDW Publishing) – Prepare to open a door onto one of the grimmest battlefields of the 20th century, whose darkness might even strike fear into an army of supernatural shadows.
Map to the Sun (First Second) – A YA graphic novel about five principle players in a struggling girls’ basketball team. The presentation is amazing.
Mega Man: Fully Charged #1 (BOOM! Studios) – The animated reboot comes to comics. While we haven’t seen the show, we’re excited to check out the comic as fans of the video game.
Nailbiter Returns #4 (Image Comics) – If you like horror or slasher movies, you’ll enjoy this comic series.
The School for Extraterrestrial Girls (Papercutz) – Jeremy Whitley and Jamie Noguchi’s new graphic novel series about a school for extraterrestrials.
X-Factor #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was fantastic and to have a detective series that fills a niche of solving one of the flaws of Krakoa should be interesting going forward.
