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.
Ancient Enemies #1 (Frank Miller Presents) – Earth becomes the final battlefield for a centuries old war between two alien races.
Boat Life (Floating World Comics) – Boat Life stars novelist Tsuda Kenta, a lightly veiled stand-in for the artist, Tsuge Tadao, himself, as he pursues a life of reprieve and reverie on a small, makeshift house boat on a river outside of Tokyo.
Dark Spaces: Wildfire #5 (IDW Publishing) – The series has been amazing and such a unique concept of a heist set in a forest fire. The art has been at times jaw dropping.
DC vs. Vampires #11 (DC Comics) – We’ll keep repeating it but the series has blown past our expectations and kept us at the edge of our seat.
Eight Billion Genies #6 (Image Comics) – The series has been amazing being able to fit in so many concepts and ideas and make it all work. But, it’s the characters in the crazy world that’s the real draw.
Fear of a Red Planet #1 (AfterShock) – The sheriff on Mars must deal with the murder of someone everyone hates.
Frank Miller’s Ronin Book Two #1 (Frank Miller Presents) – It’s been a long time since we read the original but Miller returning to comics the way he is and launching this has us intrigued.
G.I. Joe: A Real American Hero #300 (IDW Publishing) – A final special oversized issue as G.I. Joe ends its time at IDW. Hopefully, this isn’t the end of Larry Hama’s writing for the series no matter where it winds up.
Kamen Rider: Zero One #1 (Titan Comics) – We’re not too familiar with Kamen Rider but we’re excited to check this out. The covers and art look awesome!
Once Upon a Time at the End of the World #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A new apocalyptic series but it’s a trilogy with each issue featuring 30 pages of story that spans a lifetime. An interesting concept from writer Jason Aaron and rotating group of artists.
Parker Girls #3 (Abstract Studio) – The series has been a lot of fun mixing action and humor, exactly what we’d expect from creator Terry Moor.
Star Wars: Revelations #1 (Marvel) – The issue teases what’s to come for Marvel’s Star Wars line of comics!
