Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

The Nice House on the Lake #5

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.

Almost American #2 (AfterShock) – Based on the true story of two Russian spies who defected to the US.

Amazing Spider-Man #75 (Marvel) – It’s a whole new era for Spider-Man as Ben Reilly suits up in what’s being dubbed “Beyond”. It’s an intriguing new direction that builds off of what has come before really well.

Arkham City: The Order of the World #1 (DC Comics) – After A-Day, numerous individuals who were in Arkham escaped. This series focuses on them and the individuals attempting to round them up.

Batman #114 (DC Comics) – “Fear State” has been amazing and this issue is just awesome brutal action.

By the Horns #6 (Scout Comics) – This fantasy series has been a blast to read with a nice mix of tech and magic and characters that are a lot of fun to watch what they do and how they interact. This is a series far too many are sleeping on.

Chicken Devil #1 (AfterShock) – The title alone has us smiling. The story is about a business owner who finds out his business partner owes the mob $2 million.

Dark Ages #2 (Marvel) – The miniseries has the world plunged into darkness and the heroes attempting to help rebuild society. An interesting debut that had us wanting to check out more.

DC Horror Presents: Soul Plumber #1 (DC Comics/DC Horror) – DC has been dipping into horror more and more and this second series in the line has us wanting to see if they can strike gold twice.

The Nice House on the Lake #5 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – An amazing series. An amazing issue. This is one that should be in everyone’s pullbox.

Out #1 (AWA Studios) – Allied POWs vs. Vampires in World War II.

Righteous Thirst for Vengeance #1 (Image Comics) – Rick Remender writing a new series gets us to take notice but the tease of assassin’s and the action that can bring has us excited.

Serial #7 (Abstract Studio) – This series has been growing on us with every issue and this one really starts to bring it all together.

Beware the Chicken Devil!

Chicken Devil #1

Writer: Brian Buccellato
Artist: Hayden Sherman
Letterer: Hassan Otsmane-Elhaou
Cover: Hayden Sherman
Incentive Cover: David Lopez
$4.99 / 32 pages / Color / 10.06.2021

Mitchell Moss is about as regular as it gets. He’s married with two children, and co-owns a successful chain of Memphis Hot Chicken restaurants. It’s not the life that screams hero/vigilante…until he discovers that his business partner is in bed with the mob and owes them $2 million. Unfortunately, Mitch is ill-equipped to be a badass—he’s just a guy who makes really good chicken. Can he protect his family from cold-blooded gangsters? Absolutely not.

But maybe the CHICKEN DEVIL can…   

Writer Brian Buccellato (Detective Comics, The Flash, Witchblade) and artist Hayden Sherman (COLD WAR, MARY SHELLEY MONSTER HUNTER) serve up a darkly comedic crime drama that’s juicy, tender and finger-lickin’ hilarious.
