Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Poison Ivy #1

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.

Aquaman: Andromeda #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – A DC Black Label Aquaman series is described as cosmic horror around a mysterious structure… that’s waking up!

Astronaut Down #1 (AfterShock) – It’s a trip into alternate realities in an attempt to save Earth from a horrific crisis.

By the Horns: Dark Earth #1 (Scout Comics) – The series is one of our favorites. It’s been six months since the events of the previous volume when a new quest begins due to a mysterious blight.

Code 45 #1 (Scout Comics) – There are dragons lurking in the tunnels beneath Montreal’s city streets – at least that’s the rumor.

Dark Crisis #1 (DC Comics) – DC’s next big event kicks off officially. DC’s classic heroes are gone, will a new generation be able to step up to handle the remaining villains while also standing up against the oncoming darkness?

Dark Knights of Steel #7 (DC Comics) – The series has been a hell of a lot of fun so far with a nice Elseworlds feel to it. Will three kingdoms go to war? Will someone be able to stop it?

Dogs of London #2 (AfterShock) – Ex-gangsters are haunted by someone they thought was dead but might be back!?

Fortnite x Marvel: Zero War #1 (Marvel) – The two properties come together again! The first volume was a hot commodity and we’re expecting the same with this.

Metal Society #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was an interesting new series where humanity was extinct, brought back by robot overlords, and are now fighting in an MMA fight to win their freedom. So much to chew on but just a solid series.

Multiversity: Teen Justice #1 (DC Comics) – Head to Earth-11 for this group of heroes! Everything we’ve seen so far makes this one seem like a hell of a lot of fun.

Nubia: Queen of the Amazons #1 (DC Comics) – Nubia is off to tour of the Amazons that don’t call Themyscira home as a villain from her past steps out of the shadows.

Past the Last Mountain #4 (CEX Publishing) – The series has been fantastic as it reaches it conclusion. Will the creatures reach Dragon Lake and if they do, will it live up to their expectations?

Poison Ivy #1 (DC Comics) – Ivy sets out to complete her greatest work-a gift to the world that will heal the damage dealt to it…by ending humanity.

Potions Inc. #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – Ran finally gets the quest he’s been after his whole life. He and his siblings set off to find a missing artifact.

Quests Aside #2 (Vault Comics) – A fantastic first issue that takes the “save the bar” concept in a whole new direction.

Savage Avengers #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a lot of fun bringing together a rather random group of heroes. The second issue looks to drop them in an unexpected location mixing things up from the previous volume.

Skybound Presents Afterschool #1 (Image Comics/Skybound) – A new anthology series that riffs on the classic “Afterschool specials” with a rotating team of creators.

Twig #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue of this series had a very Jim Henson vibe. The biggest issue was it was too short and might have been better as a graphic novel. Still, we’re excited to see where this adventure goes.

Ward #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – A medical drama with fairies, trolls, and some real humans too. Welcome to St. Lilith, a secret hospital for supernatural creatures.

Where Starships Go to Die #1 (AfterShock) – In a near future ravaged by climate change, an African astronaut teams with an Indian shipping magnate to mount a dangerous salvage mission to recover the wreck of humanity’s first interstellar starship.
