Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

International-Iron-ManWednesdays 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!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Mr. H

Top Pick: Superman #50 (DC Comics) – Truth be gone! Superman is back and he gets to meet Pre 52 Clark? Absolutely on board for this one. Hope we get a lot on all the supporting cast and how they react to Clark fully back. Good to see the S in the sky again. Great Caesars Ghost it took long enough.

Dragon Age: Magekiller #4 (Dark Horse Comics) – So this book has been the guilty pleasure of my pull list each month lately. Greg Rucka and Carmen Canero do an awesome job of hitting the fantasy bone with great characters and fun as hell dialogue. Sad it’s winding down. Only one more ish to go…

International Iron Man #1 (Marvel Comics) – While I’m not completely hating Invincible Iron Man, there is definitely something lacking. Hoping that one of my favorite all time teams can bring the flash back to Tony’s tales. I don’t need a ticket to Stark Expo for this one. I’m already there.

 

Paul

Top Pick: Extraordinary X-Men #8 (Marvel) – I know, they’re pulling the Apocalypse Wars to coincide with the upcoming movie; but Apocalypse is a great villain, so I’m excited for this to start.  Not so keen on the fact the X-Men are going into the timestream…again!  Haven’t they already made a big enough mess with all the time travel?  I’m really hoping this is a great story arc…and I love this team line up.

All-New Inhumans #5 (Marvel) – So Crystal and her team are exploring the skyspears around the world, stopping in China first…and Spider-Man is joining them.  An interesting team up, and I’m looking forward to see it.

All-New X-Men #6 (Marvel) – Still a fun ride, but I’d like to see a little more from this title then just Warren worrying about Laura, Evan and Idie standing around in the background and Hank feeding their pet Bamf.  A more substantial story would be nice; yes I know young Scott is trying to redeem himself but ok…and??  The fun ride is getting a little stale, I want more from these kids.

Scarlet Witch #4 (Marvel) – This is the book I’m really rooting for;  I haven’t been enjoying it 100% and I just hope it finds its footing with the potential I know it has.  Wanda is such a great character, one of my favourites and I think she needs a title to shine in.

Uncanny Inhumans #6 (Marvel) – I am loving that they brought the Quiet Room from Secret Wars into the main universe, and I’m really liking the idea behind it; a neutral zone for meetings, gambling and a good time. Of course, it all goes to hell and Black Bolt has to clean it up the mess. Really enjoying this book and liking this new side of Black Bolt.

 

Alex

Top Pick: Wrath Of The Eternal Warrior #5 (Valiant) – Juan Jose Ryp and Jordie Bellaire are the talented artists joining the phenomenal writer Robert Venditti for this issue. That alone makes me drool with anticipation, but the fact that this is the first of a two part story makes me positively giddy. It has been years since I’ve read a two part story for a character I love as much as the Eternal Warrior. I can’t bloody wait.

 

Javier

Top Pick: Devolution #3 (Dynamite Entertainment) – At first, I picked this up only because Remender wrote it.  Now that I am firmly aware of its premise—a devolved world resulting from a man made virus created to eliminate religious beliefs, and by extension strife and war—I’m hooked for the long haul.

3 Devils #1 (IDW Publishing) – I really don’t know much about Bo or this book. All I know is that it’s a “supernatural western with a gypsy girl, an ex-slave with no soul, and a human wolf.”  Taking a risk but sounds promising.

Clean Room #6 (Vertigo) – Gail Simone’s dark, demonic, bloody, and cultish book is giving me nightmares, and I love it.

Legends of Tomorrow #1 (DC Comics) – Old school writers (Gerry Conway and Len Wein), and a new take on Sugar and Spike (sorry, but if you automatically recognize these two, then you’re probably old).  I am eager to see what DC does with this.

Starve #7 (Image Comics) – Having grown up in East New York during the 1980s, this will not be my first experience with urban chicken farms (my Uncle had one on Euclid Avenue); but I am curious about the “Black Market Greens.”

 

Brett

Top Pick: A&A: The Adventures of Archer & Armstrong #1 (Valiant) – It’s been too long since we had an Archer and Armstrong comic from Valiant. Each time this team has been on the printed page, I’ve been beyond entertained and usually howling with laughter. Always a fantastic read, and I expect no less from this debut issue.

All-New Classic Captain Canuck #1/Captain Canuck #7 (Chapter House Comics) – Pure, fun super hero comics with none of the negative grim and gritty. A fun read that has a classic feel about it.

Legends of Tomorrow #1 (DC Comics) – I like anthologies and this series is going to spotlight various characters in each issue. This has Firestorm, Sugare & Spike, Metamorpho, and Metal Men and that combo has me excited to see where this goes and hoping for a long run.

Monstress #4 (Image Comics) – An amazing world that builds with each issue. I’m not a big fantasy fan, but this series has me hooked. A deep read and just jaw dropping art.

Superman: American Alien #5 (DC Comics) – A solid deconstruction of Superman with a rotating cast of artists with each issue. I think it’s the best Superman on the market right now.

3 Devils #1 (of 4)

Bo Hampton (w & a & c)

3 Devils, from writer/artist Bo Hampton, is a high-action, supernatural western that centers around a pact of vengeance sworn by a tragically orphaned Gypsy girl, an ex-slave with no soul, and a carnival freak billed as the Human Wolf. Gaining strength and courage from each other, they set off across the Old West—in search of the three hideous, inhuman entities that caused their torment and haunt their lives.

Kickstarter Spotlight: Samurai, Cake Princesses, Baking, Canada, Qu33R, Devils, Steampunk & Magic School

ebfe969d25999ac826e3481bc9f8572a_largeSons of Fate

What it is: A lost chapter in the history of ancient Japan and the code of the Samurai via an unlikely warrior from the most foreign of lands.

Why I like it: The story sounds pretty cool and I generally think we could use more cool Samurai stories out there. The art looks pretty solid too, and seeing it all in a full comic book series would be solid.

Best Pledge: $10 gets you all three issues as a PDF or $25 gets you a printed graphic novel.

Risk: MEDIUM: Creator Jean-Paul Deshong has been involved with previous Kickstarter projects, but I couldn’t see how well that went. Some of the prices seem a little off, but the March 2014 date for delivery seems to be pretty realistic.

20130920211345-promo_cover_picture_for_campaignMy Sweet Lady

What it is: The story focuses on a cake princess with a rotten attitude named Lady White Cake, and her quest to transform into someone that everyone will love and respect with the help of her little friend, Cupcake. Due to the sudden and mysterious death of Lady White’s father, the King, she will have to take his place as ruler of her kingdom in a month’s time, while uncovering the truth behind her father’s death.

Why I like it: I’m still generally new to manga, but there’s something that sounds cute and fun about the comic series.

Best Pledge: $12 gets you the zero issue of the series signed plus your name as a credit.

Risk: MEDIUM: I have no idea the creators experience in doing this sort of project and the January 2014 date seems a bit short.

44252ecea915488d14a786b2546c3456_largeNutmeg: Issue 1

What it is: When quiet, friendly Poppy Pepper teams up with steely new girl Cassia Caraway in a bid to sabotage haughty rival Saffron Longfellow’s brownie-baking enterprise, they wind up creating a brownie even more addictive than Saffron’s, thanks to a secret and possibly illicit ingredient. Before long, they find themselves at the head of a culinary empire and must navigate Saffron, her crew, the PTA and even the police.

Why I like it: Kickstarter is made for a comic series like this. How does the above not get you interested?

Best Pledge: $12 gets you a printed copy as well as pdf and a random print.

Risk: MEDIUM: The prices seem to be really low, but these are professionals, so….

1d305a027548ccc8a65f06cd9d39b97d_largeNelvana of the Northern Lights: Canada’s First Superheroine

What it is: Nelvana of the Northern Lights is Canada’s first superheroine and one of the most popular creations of the Canadian Golden Age of comics. YES! Canada has a golden age of comics!

She was first published in December 1941 in Triumph-Adventure Comics, and ran as a feature for 31 issues, even having her own merchandise and graphic novel. She’s one of the very first female superheroes ever created, predating Wonder Woman by several months.

Nelvana of the Northern Lights was created and developed by Adrian Dingle. The idea was conceived after hearing Inuit stories of a mysterious goddess-like figure relayed to him by his friend Franz Johnston (of the Group of Seven). Dingle decided to ‘make her into a doll in a miniskirt’ and thus Nelvana, defender of the Northern people and enemy to the Axis powers, was born.

Why I like it: This is a piece of history people!!! Awesome to see a superheroine from Canada getting some love.

Best Pledge: $50 gets you a copy to read in print and digital!

Risk: MEDIUM: As they state, they need to restore the book, so the time frame for delivery is a bit up in the air.

f4b9b02c1dbe6126e2d6ed17e2779993_largeQU33R — New Queer Comics Anthology

What it is: QU33R is an all-new project featuring queer comics legends as well as new talents that picks up where No Straight Lines left off. Where No Straight Lines set down our history, QU33R shines a light on our future!

Why I like it: I’ll always support Northwest Press and whatever that team puts together. They’re a needed voice and publisher in the comic book industry.

Best Pledge: $30 gets you the print edition of the book.

Risk: LOW: They know what they’re doing. I’ve contributed before to them and receive my copy in time and as promised.

3DEVILs MAIN IMAGE ABSOGOgroup3 Devils

What it is: 3 Devils is an 80 pg. graphic novel written and drawn by Bo Hampton and colored by Jeremy Mohler. It’s a Supernatural Western/ Action/ Adventure/ Melodrama and too much for editors, in general, to wrap their heads around, in this country and in Europe.

Why I like it: The story sounds very cool and the art looks pretty solid.

Best Pledge: $15 gets you a printed copy signed.

Risk: MEDIUM: First projects I always put at medium as they have no history, but the date of October 2014 is very realistic.

fb4ecf20c162c8339c8d112cadc61ec6_largeSTEAMPUNK REILLY

What it is: A graphic novel telling the story of Sidney Reilly, the world’s first true secret agent, set against a Steampunk alternate history.

Why I like it: I’m a fan of steampunk and the idea of mixing it up with a secret agent spin sounds like it could be pretty cool and entertaining.

Best Pledge: $15 gets you the printed first volume and some more items.

Risk: MEDIUM: The date of November seems to be off, even if it’s completed, I don’t see how it gets printed that quickly (though they may have it all printed).

5abdb047664374d0c47e3c6755725492_largeMisfortune High Book 1

What it is: Misfortune High is the story of Biscuit, a spoiled rich kid, who goes to the most prestigious magic academy in the city.  Biscuit gets caught cheating and lying, but his father decides not to bail him out as he usually does. Instead, his father punishes Biscuit by sending him to a magic school in a bad neighborhood.

Why I like it: The above sounds awesome! So much fun and something new and interesting.

Best Pledge: $15 gets you a digital copy of this and another series or $20 gets you a printed copy.

Risk: MEDIUM: It’s the first project so automatically gets this, but the project is done, so it’s just printing and shipping.
