Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!
Wednesdays (and 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.
Alice Ever After #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A new take on Alice in Wonderland? Yeah, we’re in.
Batman Beyond: Neo Year #1 (DC Comics) – It’s Terry’s first year without Bruce Wayne brought to us by Collin Kelly, Jackson Lanzing, and art by Max Dunbar. We’re beyond excited for the combo of creative team and character.
Devil’s Reign #6 (Marvel) – The event wraps up and we have no idea where it’s going from here.
GILT #1 (AHOY Comics) – A time travel urban fantasy. We’re intrigued.
Joneses #1 (AWA Studios) – A suburban family must hide their superpowers from those that fear them.
Lead City #1 (Red 5 Comics) – There’s not enough Western comics, so we’re excited when one debuts.
LEGO Ninjago: Garmadon #1 (Image Comics/Skybound) – The toyline comes to Skybound and we’re intrigued to see what the publisher primarily known for adult comics does with the property.
Marauders #1 (Marvel) – Kate Pryde is back with her crew and a refocused mission. With new crewmates, this is an intriguing direction for the series and its brand-new creative team.
The Ocean Will Take Us #1 (AfterShock) – Something’s lurking in the waters of Almanzar Bay – and when Casey March tries out for the swim team, he learns firsthand that messing with the social order of his new high school can have dangerous – even deadly – consequences!
The Rocketeer: The Great Race #1 (IDW Publishing) – This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Rocketeer! Celebrate with a brand new miniseries.
Spider-Punk #1 (Marvel) – The concept is just fun. We’re in for that alone.
Third Wave 99 #2 (Scout Comics) – We thought the series was about surfing culture and clothing but nope, there’s undercover cops and drugs. Not what we expected at all.
West of Sundown #1 (Vault Comics) – A beautiful vampire must flee monster slayers in New York City and reclaim the ancestral soil that restores her undead flesh. But much has changed in the rough frontier town where lots of monsters have settled.
Wonder Woman Historia: The Amazons #2 (DC Comics) – Taking us through the history of the Amazons, the first issue set a high bar with a beautiful and haunting story matched with some of the best art of the year. Here’s hoping the second issue comes close to matching it.
X-Men Red #1 (Marvel) – Get your ass to Mars. With Destiny of X kicking off, the focus shifts to the mutants of Arakko and their growth on Mars.
