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.
Abbott 1973 #1 (BOOM! Studios) – The first series was fantastic with its setting and well everything. This new volume takes us to 1973 where a group wants to destroy a Black candidate for Mayor.
Crimson Flower #1 (Dark Horse) – The latest from Matt Kindt and Matt Lesniewski, the series is a mind-altering journey through Russian folk tales, trained assassins, and government conspiracies. We’re all in for this.
DC Future State (DC Comics) – The two-month event has been pretty solid so far. Even the “ok” comics have been entertaining and there have been some amazing comics. This week’s releases include Future State: Catwoman #1, Future State: Immortal Wonder Woman #1, Future State: Nightwing #1, Future State: Shazam! #1, Future State: Superman: Worlds of War #1, and Future State: The Next Batman #2.
I Breathed a Body #1 (AfterShock) – The world’s biggest influencer posts something irredeemably horrific online which instantly changes the world. It’s up to his social media manager, Anne Stewart, to fan the flames of outrage and create a sensationalist campaign that rewrites the rules of “banned content.” Well, ok then.
Iron Fist: Heart of the Dragon #1 (Marvel) – Larry Hama writing this is all the reason we need for it to make the list.
King in Black #3 (Marvel) – The event has been top-notch and really feels like an over the top summer blockbuster film. It’s a sit back and enjoy the popcorn fun.
Legacy of Mandrake the Magician #4 (Red 5 Comics) – Wrapping up the series which has been a great update to the classic character. It’s been a solid and fun read so far.
Maestro: War and Pax #1 (Marvel) – The first volume of Maestro’s journey was a bit hit and miss but we want to see where this next one takes things.
Savage Circus #2 (Heavy Metal) – Mix Gremlins and Die Hard together and you have this series which features monsters and a heist during a Christmas storm. The first issue was a great setup so we’re hoping this one really brings the action.
We Live #4 (AfterShock) – The series has been amazing when it comes to worldbuilding and with some fantastic art too. Each issue has been full of twists and turns and who knows where this one is going.
Yasmeen #6 (Scout Comics) – One of the best comics of the past year wraps up as Yasmeen must face her past while the police investigate her.
