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.
20 Fists #1 (Source Point Press) – Described as a story about “fist fights and bad romance” that’s all we need to know to get us to read this first issue.
Beatnik Buenos Aires (Fantagraphics) – Set in 1963, this graphic novel celebrates a time in Argentine history when its art scene blossomed.
Beta Ray Bill #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was full of emotion and we’re hoping for more of the same with this as Beta Ray Bill really begins his journey to find himself.
Black Widow #6 (Marvel) – This series has been full of action and we expect more. Solid story and amazing art equals a must read for us!
BRZRKR #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue was full of action and enough to get us to want to check out more. This is a summer popcorn film in comic form.
Cold Dead War #2 (Heavy Metal) – War action featuring zombies! Yeah, we’re in for it.
Friend of the Devil: A Reckless Book (Image Comics) – Ed Brubaker, Jacon Phillips, and Sean Phillips return for a new graphic novel featuring Ethan Reckless. The first was fantastic pulp noir entertainment and we’re expecting more of the same.
Harley Quinn #2 (DC Comics) – Future State delivered a new direction for Harley Quinn and this series is putting her in that direction. We really enjoyed the first issue that has Harley attempting to settle in her new role as hero.
Helm Greycastle #1 (Image Comics) – A new Latinx fantasy about a group of adventurers torn between saving a prince or helping the people.
The Marvels #1 (Marvel) – A journey through Marvel’s history spanning decades written by Kurt Busiek with art by Yildiray Cinar.
Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25 (Marvel) – We’d be lying if we said we weren’t intrigued my the new take on “The Clone Saga”.
The Modern Frankenstein #1 (Heavy Metal/Magma Comix) – A new twist on the classic tale. A surgeon wants to further medical science by any means necessary. So how far will the young medical student attracted to him go?
My Little Pony/Transformers II #1 (IDW Publishing) – The concept might be silly but the first volume was a lot of fun bringing the Transformers to the Pony’s world. Now, they’re heading to Cybertron!
Nuclear Family #3 (AfterShock) – We think we know what’s going on with this alternate history story but we’re not totally sure, so we absolutely want to read this one!
Robin #1 (DC Comics) – Damian strikes out in his own series and we’re here for it. This is a character that grew on us and we want to see if he can do so more.
Shadow Doctor #3 (AfterShock) – Based on a true story, the series is about a Black Doctor who has to go to Al Capone for money to start his business. It’s been amazing so far.
Shadowman #1 (Valiant Entertainment) – We’ve read the first issue and the entire team has loved it. It’s a fantastic start for the new series and great introduction to the character.
Snatched #1 (Scout Comics) – If you thought the drug game was deadly, wait until you see what goes down in the hair trade. Wait… what!?
Stake #2 (Scout Comics) – The first issue was absolutely fantastic and a nice take on the vampire genre. Mixing social media with good action, this is a series that we want to sink our teeth in to.
Summoners War Legacy #1 (Image Comics) – The popular mobile game comes to comics.
Teen Titans Academy #2 (DC Comics) – Who is Red X? Lets face it, that’s what we all want to find out. The first issue was decent but followed a concept we’ve seen before with fun characters but not a lot new… so far.
Your Turn to Die Vol. 1 (Yen Press) – The concept is basically Saw with a group of people but it’s so damn good. Check it out if you like that concept of puzzle-solving where you die if you fail.
