Jackson Hyde finally has it all. Mentors who support him, a community that loves him, an honest relationship with his mother, a cute new guy in Amnesty Bay who’s caught his eye, and access to Aquaman’s private training facility in Atlantis. Well, he had it all-until that training facility and half of the Atlantean palace got blown to kingdom come with Jackson in them. Now Jackson stands accused of wrecking the life he worked so hard to build. Aqualad’s going to need all of his skills, wit, and cunning just to prove his own innocence, let alone graduate from sidekick to Aquaman!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

FIST OF THE NORTH STAR HC VOL 02

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.

Adventures of the Mad Tsar (Black Panel Press) – Collecting the three volume French graphic novel about a deposed Tsar who’s replaced with a lookalike. Watch our review.

Aquaman: The Becoming #1 (DC Comics) – We know the character has a big future ahead in the DC Universe, so we’re intrigued how he gets there.

Barb the Last Berzerker Vol. 1 (Simon & Schuster) – Barb is a Berzerker and will need to defeat Witch Head to save her friends and land.

Batman #113/Batman Secret Files: Miracle Molly #1 (DC Comics) – “Fear State” has been solid so far and Miracle Molly and intriguing new addition to the characters of Gotham. We’re excited to dive into each new chapter of this solid “Bat Event”.

Bunny Mask #4 (AfterShock) – A nice mix of horror and psychological mystery, the series has us guessing what will happen next and what’s going on.

Death of Doctor Strange #1 (Marvel) – Yes, we know this is only until the next movie but we’d be lying if we weren’t intrigued, especially since Marvel seems to be all over in their focus on the “magical” side of their comic universe.

Eat the Rich #2 (BOOM! Studios) – An outsider enters the world of the rich… who might be cannibals?!

Fist of the North Star Vol. 2 (VIZ Media) – A new edition of the classic manga series in a nice hardback cover. It’s a martial arts version of Mad Max and a lot of fun.

Frontiersman #1 (Image Comics) – An intriguing new series about a former superhero coaxed out of retirement by an environmentalist group. As a spokesperson, old enemies return and new enemies make him a target.

Moon Knight #3 (Marvel) – The lack of focus on Moon Knight’s Jewish roots is a bit frustrating (a Jewish hero “enslaved” by an Egyptian God writes itself) but the series has been impressive. A new villain shows a lot of potential as the character’s status quo gets shaken up before his show debuts.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: The Last Ronin #4 (IDW Publishing) – It’s been a bit but we’re excited for the series’ return and our return to the world of the last Turtle.

X-Men: Onslaught Revelation #1 (Marvel) – Onslaught. Nuff said.
