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.
American Ronin #1 (AWA Studios) – Corporations engage in a silent war for global domination using highly-skilled, technologically-enhanced operatives to wage war. What happens when one of those operatives breaks free of the control?
American Vampire 1976 #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – The fantastic series is back for another ride as Skinner Sweet must help with a heist to help stop a true evil.
Batman #100 (DC Comics) – “Joker War” wraps up with this issue and it’s a hell of a finale.
Champions #1 (Marvel) – The first issue was solid and plants the flag as to what this latest volume of Champions is all about. Read our review.
Getting It Together #1 (Image Comics) – A family/friend drama about relationships and friendship. There’s something intriguing about this dramedy from Sina Grace, Omar Spahi, and MX Struble.
Hollywood Trash #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – A top entertainment mogul puts a hit on two local garbage men who have stolen from him. It’s one epic day of sword fights, forest fires, and giant mechs!
Neil Gaiman’s Norse Mythology #1 (Dark Horse) – Neil Gaiman, P. Craig Russell, Mike Mignola, and Jerry Ordway is enough to sell us on this series that breathes “new life into action Norse stories.”
Penultiman #1 (AHOY Studios) – The Next-To-Last-Stage In Human Evolution, is the greatest, best-looking, and most admired super-hero in the world! So how can he stop hating himself? His android understudy, Antepenultiman, thinks he knows the answer!
Snake Eyes: Deadgame #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue was solid as Rob Liefeld does his thing with the beloved G.I. Joe character. It exceeded our expectations and we’re hoping the second issue does the same.
Transformers/Back to the Future #1 (IDW Publishing) – The two classic properties crossing over might seem silly but IDW has been knocking it out of the park with these sort of stories these past few years. We love both Transformers and Back to the Future, so we’re in.
The Walking Dead Deluxe #1 (Image Comics/Skybound) – If you’ve never read the modern classic series, here’s your chance. Colored for the first time, it’ll be interesting to see how the horror/zombie series might be different in color compared to its original black and white.
We Only Find Them When They’re Dead #2 (BOOM! Studios) – This is basically Moby Dick with space gods and the art is amazing.
