Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Blossoms 666

Wednesdays 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 Wednesday.

It’s a short week of releases with the holiday and you can get every single issue for under $50! So, instead of picking which you should get, we’re doing something a little bit different with going over what they are and why you should check out each release!

American Carnage #3 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – An undercover agent dealing with white supremacists, yeah, we’re all in for this series.

The Avant-Guards #1 (BOOM! Studios/BOOM! Box) – BOOM! has been rocking series the popular genre of manga sports comics with a western spin. This is the latest entry into that and we can’t wait to read it.

Blossoms 666 #1 (Archie Horror/Archie Comics) – Archie’s horror line of comics has been fun and different and this latest entry is one we’ve been waiting to check out since it was announced.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer #1 (BOOM! Studios) – The classic tv show is back in a reboot and we’re beyond intrigued about the new spin.

Freedom Fighters #2 (DC Comics) – Nazi punching, nuff said.

Go-Bots #3 (IDW Publishing) – The first two issues are no joke and much more depth than we expected. Hopefully the third is more of that excellence.

Guardians of the Galaxy #1 (Marvel) – The Guardians get a new volume and a new line up of characters that reminds us of the Abnett and Lanning days of the series.

Naomi #1 (Wonder Comics/DC Comics) – A brand new character debuts in Brian Michael Bendis’ in contunuity Wonder Comics line and we’re very intrigued.

Oliver #1 (Image Comics) – New twists on Oliver Twist seems to be all the rage now but we’re always up to see how someone updates and makes their take unique to a classic like Dickens’ famous orphan.

Uncanny X-Men Annual #1 (Marvel) – Cyclops is back, but how? This promises to answer that question.
