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.
Barb and The Ghost Blade (Simon & Schuster Books for Young Readers) – We loved the first volume that had Barb kicking butt and trying to save her friends and family. Now she has a crew and they must infiltrate the monster capital, and find Franny Fire Fingers, who they hope will lead them to the Wise Wizards and the power to fight Witch Head.
Batman: Fortress #1 (DC Comics) – It looks like a global attack and Superman is missing. Batman must lead the charge in response. A solid first issue that builds on the unknown.
DC vs. Vampires: Hunters #1 (DC Comics) – A key issue for those reading the series. It feels like the transition from the first half of the series to the second.
Devil’s Reign: Omega #1 (Marvel) – It feels like forever since this even wrapped up but this issue delivers what the final issue didn’t, teases of what’s next!
Fox and Hare #1 (Vault Comics) – After a lot of anticipation the first issue is here and we can’t wait to check out the series about a mega corporation that wanrs its data back from a black market coder. The art looks awesome!
Hellboy & the BPRD: Night of the Cyclops (Dark Horse Comics) – We’re always fans of Hellboy one-shots that you can pick up and just enjoy. It’s like a dime store pulp novel in comic form.
Image! 30th Anniversary Anthology #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue surprised us as a celebration of Image but not the past, what is and what will be. We’re hoping for more of that and the series highlighting the publisher’s potentially bright future.
The Killer: Affairs of the State #4 (BOOM! Studios/Archaia) – The series has been a fantastic spy/crime series that leaves readers with something to ponder after every issue.
Land of the Living Gods #4 (AfterShock) – The series has been fantastic giving us an apocalyptic story that has a great attention to small details that makes it stand out.
Legion of X #1 (Marvel) – Who will police Krakoa and help pursue happiness and hope? Legion of X!
My Little Pony #1 (IDW Publishing) – Spinning out of the Netflix movie, we’re interested in seeing how the series transitions and who it’s focused on as far as readers.
The Naughty List #2 (AfterShock) – The first issue had a lot of humor but this Santa goes on a revenge trip also had a lot of heart too.
Past the Last Mountain #3 (CEX Publishing) – This world about monsters running to freedom after interment delivers a lot to think about.
Spectro (AfterShock) – Juan Doe, nuff said.
Wolf Never Sleeps Vol. 1 (Yen Press) – The manga debut has a feel that’s much more traditional fantasy. While a bit slow, it’s a solid start that has us excited to read more.
