Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1

Wednesdays (and now 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. It’s the second week of new comics after the shutdown and that also means the return of Marvel!

Alienated #3 (BOOM! Studios) – The first two issues of this series has been amazing as three kids discover an alien and all the trouble the spins out from that.

Basquiat (Lawrence King Publishing) – Learn about this amazing artist. – Read our review.

Dead Day #1

Dead Day #1 (AfterShock) – The dead are able to come back for just one night. The idea of this “annual macabre holiday” is really interesting and unique and we want to see where this series goes.

Disaster, Inc. #1 (AfterShock) – A new series from writer Joe Harris and artist Sebastian Piriz takes us on a tour of some of the worst places on earth while digging up trouble. The concept of disaster tourism is a new one for comics and we’re excited to check this one out. – Check out our exclusive preview.

Fun Fun Fun World (Oni Press) – Creator Yehudi Mercado knocks it out of the park with his comics and we expect no less. The Devastorm 5 is an alien warship whose prime directive is to seek out planets to invade and conquer in tribute to the almighty Alien Queen. The only problem is that the crew of the Devastorm 5 is the worst in the fleet. It sounds like a really fun fun fun idea.

King of Nowhere #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Now an honorary citizen of Nowhere, Denis joins one of the locals on a doomed-to-fail money-making scheme at the outskirts of town, while John Doe’s mysterious killer continues to leave bodies in his wake… We’re excited to dive back into this intriguing series.

My Video Game Ate My Homework (DC Comics) – Part of DC’s line of graphic novels for young readers, this is also one of the few that are original properties. Every one of their “kids” graphic novels have been top notch so far and we’d expect nothing less of this one.

Rogue Planet #1 (Oni Press) – A new sci-fi series from writer Cullen Bunn and artist Andy MacDonald about a salvage vessel tracking a planet with no star system to call its own.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1 (Marvel) – Doctor Aphra is the best addition to the Star Wars universe in quite a while. A mix of Indiana Jones and pure chaos we’re always excited for her adventures. – Read the review of this first issue.

Venom #25 (Marvel) – It’s the end of “Venom Island” but an over-sized issue has us expecting something big for this series which has become really tied into Marvel’s bigger picture.

BOOM! Releases a First Look at Alienated #3

BOOM! Studios has revealed a first look at  Alienated #3, the latest issue of the new original series from acclaimed writer Simon Spurrier, artist Chris Wildgoose, colorist André May, and letterer Jim Campbell, a subversive coming-of-age story about having all the power to change the world but the unready hands to truly wield it, available on May 20, 2020.

It’s Samantha’s turn with Chip—the dangerous alien—but everything starts to go wrong when she instigates a confrontation with her ex-boyfriend. Scared and angry, Samantha struggles with the decision to use Chip’s powers for her own benefit. But not even she knows what the true consequences will be…

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

Alienated #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Three kids discover an alien and there’s no way this goes well. An amazing first issue and we’re expecting the same from the second.

Archangel 8 #1/Hotell #1/Red Border #1/Resistance #1 (AWA Studios) – AWA Studios launches with four series all being released this week. We’ve read the teaser magazine and these all look great. A new publisher? We’re in!

Artemis & the Assassin #1 (AfterShock) – A time traveling assassin and a spy from 1944 try to kill each other. Yeah, this sounds awesome.

Bad Reception #4 (AfterShock) – Each issue is like an Agatha Christie novel and it’s been so good.

Bang! #2 (Dark Horse) – The debut was a crazy riff on the James Bond genre. There were enough twists to make it stand out and we want to see where it goes.

Canopus #2 (Scout Comics) – Fantastic sci-fi and a must get. The debut issue was one of the best of the year so far. Helen’s stuck on a mysterious planet and doesn’t know why.

Outlawed #1 (Marvel) – There are absolutely echoes of Civil War but the first issue is a solid start to what’s coming.

Plunge #2 (DC Comics/DC Black Label/Hill House Comics) – The first issue was fantastic horror and we’ve been awaiting the second.

Starship Down #1 (Dark Horse) – An extraterrestrial ship is discovered buried under the ice for thousands of years.

Undiscovered Country #5 (Image Comics) – This comic has been crazy with everything it’s throwing out there and mixing together. Mad Max and apocalypse story with possible time travel-ish elements. It’s all over and just crazy fun.

Wicked Things #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A spin-off from Giant Days about everyone’s favorite child detective: Charlotte Grote!

X-Ray Robot #1 (Dark Horse) – Mike Allred’s latest and Allred’s name alone has us excited for the first issue.
