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.

Batman/Spawn #1 (DC Comics) – It’s Batman and Spawn, together again. Do we really need to say why we’re excited for this? It’s the 90s, back again!

Blade Runner 2039 #1 (Titan Comics) – It has been three years since Niander Wallace introduced his brand of ‘perfectly obedient’ Replicants, and the ban on synthetic humans has been lifted, at least for the new Wallace models?

The Boxer Vol. 1 (Yen Press/Ize Press) – A story about a young man with superhuman athletic abilities who heads into the ring. But, what compels Yu to keep entering it?

Dark Ride #3 (Image Comics) – This twisted take on an amusement park has been fantastic so far delivering some family drama and horror mixed together.

Darkland #1 (Scout Comics) – A new apocalyptic tale focused on a young girl being thrust in the remnants of America.

Ginseng Roots #11 (Uncivilized Comics) – Craig Thompson’s comic series about growing up around ginseng farmers has been eye opening and educational and matched by its beautiful art.

Monica Rambeau: Photon #1 (Marvel) – The character is going to have a pretty big few years with Marvel’s Cinematic Universe and the character gets the spotlight further in comics here.

Night Club #1 (Image Comics) – Part of Millarworld, there’s a big event coming next year involving all of the various series and we’re interested in seeing how it all comes together.

Savage Avengers #8 (Marvel) – For those who haven’t been reading, the team has been thrust into the world of Marvel 2099 which has been a fun revisit with the classic characters.

A Vicious Circle #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A trained assassin from the future seeks revenge against someone with the same affliction. They’re forced to travel between the past and future.
