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.
Crossover #3 (Image Comics) – The series has been fun so far mixing solid action and mystery with a love letter to comics as a whole. Part of the fun is playing “spot the character” with each issue. An enjoyable comic on multiple levels, this is one to snag and catch up on if you haven’t been reading it.
DC’s Future State (DC Comics) -Dark Knights: Death Metal is over and now we get “what if” and possible futures for the next two months. The first round is out this week and what we’ve read, we’ve really enjoyed. You can get Future State: Harley Quinn #1, Future State: Superman of Metropolis #1, Future State: Swamp Thing #1, Future State: The Flash #1, Future State: The Next Batman #1, and Future State: Wonder Woman #1.
Eternals #1 (Marvel) – The first issue is amazing bringing the Kirby creations back into comics ahead of their film. Check out our review and then make sure to get this debut!
The Last Witch #1 (BOOM! Studios) – It’s the one time of the year when the witch known as Cailleach hunts the children of the village – so Saoirse, a brave and reckless young girl, decides this is the perfect opportunity to defy her father and discover the secrets of the witch’s tower! A new series about witches and magical powers. The art looks great and the concept really fun. It looks like a great start to a new magical fantasy series.
Scout’s Honor #1 (AfterShock) – It’s years after a nuclear apocalypse and a new society has risen based on the teachings of an old Ranger Scout manual. It’s a fantastic start with lots of twists and turns.
Star Wars: High Republic #1 (Marvel) – A new era of Star Wars kicks off here as we travel to a galaxy even further away. With a fairly blank slate to work with, we’re excited to see where all of this goes.
The Walking Dead Deluxe #6 (Image Comics/Skybound) – The series has been interesting to revisit and re-read during COVID. There’s definitely a different layer to it now. Add in the bonus material and each issue is definitely something to get to experience the series again or for the first time.
The Wrong Earth: Night and Day #1 (AHOY Comics) – The alternate-earth versions of the same masked crimefighter meet! Will they team-up or fight? The previous volumes have been great and we’re excited to check out the latest series.
