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.
Barbaric #1 (Vault Comics) – Owen the Barbarian has been cursed to do good with what remains of his life. His bloodthirsty weapon, Axe, has become his moral compass with a drinking problem. We’re sold!
By the Horns #3 (Scout Comics) – A fantastic fantasy series about a woman bent on revenge against the unicorns who killed her beloved.
Darling #1 (Source Point Press) – New York City is caught up in a missing 8-year old girl but Francis Darling accidentally stumbles onto the machinations behind her kidnapping and the drug war that ensues. But has he really?
Factory Summers (Drawn & Quarterly) – Guy Delisle recounts his summers working in a paper mill.
Made in Korea #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was fantastic and we’re expecting this one to be just as good. We felt something was lurking under the pages in the first issue and we want to see what, if anything, that is.
Mighty Crusaders: The Shield (Archie Comics) – The comic has been full of drama but we want to see this Rob Liefeld driven update on the classic Archie characters.
Parasomnia #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Cullen Bunn and Andrea Mutti, we’re in just for that. The story is about two worlds split between dreams and reality.
Power Rangers Unlimited: Edge of Darkness #1 (BOOM! Studios) – There’s a lot of buzz about this debut which features the Phantom Ranger. Expect sell-outs and new printings.
United States of Captain America #1 (Marvel) – Marvel is going to explore the legacy of Captain America and introduce a bunch of new characters inspired by the icon. We want to see what the series has to say about the character and what he represents.
White #1 (Black Mask Studios) – Black looked at a world where only Black individuals have superpowers. White focuses on the reaction to that and the individuals attempting to stop them.
