Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

X-O Manowar #1

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.

A for Anonymous (Bold Type Books) – A graphic novel that focuses on the hacktivists that took on some powerful targets.

Far Sector #5 (DC Comics/DC’s Young Animal) – This series is the best thing DC is releasing with fantastic artwork and entertaining story. It’s not too late to get started reading this one.

Ghostbusters: Year One #3 (IDW Publishing) – The series has been a lot of fun as it spotlights each member of the team giving us a little more insight into the beloved characters.

Heavy Vinyl: Y2K-O (BOOM! Studios) – The comic series goes graphic novel and in this chapter, the girls enter a Battle of the Bands to stop a shadowy corporation from destroying the world of digital music and blame it on Y2K.

Hellions #1 (Marvel) – The latest addition to Marvel’s X-Men relaunch that brings together some of the villains on Krakoa.

On the Stump #2 (Image Comics) – In this world, politicians pass legislation by battling it out in the ring. Seeing politicians getting punch is somewhat cathartic right now. Plus, it’s just a really good comic.

Transformers vs. Terminator #1 (IDW Publishing) – It’s Transformers and the Terminator mashed-up. How are we not excited for this one!?

Wolverine #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was amazing and we’re hoping the second is just as good. This is the highlight of Marvel’s X-relaunch so far.

X-O Manowar #1 (Valiant) – The debut issue is fantastic for long time fans and new readers. An amazing first issue that’s a hell of a lot of fun.

BOOM! Announces a Retailer Support Services Program which Includes Returnability through June 2020

BOOM! Studios

BOOM! Studios has announced the BOOM! Retailer Support Services Program, a comprehensive set of initiatives effective immediately to aid comic book shops worldwide affected by the current health crisis.

The BOOM! Retailer Support Services Program will initially deliver the following benefits to qualifying accounts pending details being finalized with Diamond Comic Distributors:

  • Full Returnability Through June: BOOM! Studios will extend the industry’s best returnability program, the BOOM! Guarantee, by making all items that ship between March 18th through June 24th fully returnable via affidavit in order to allow retailers to order with confidence. Any retailer not already enrolled in the BOOM! Guarantee can sign up for free right here.
  • #BoostYourLCS Paid Promotion: BOOM! Studios will increase targeted advertising and promotion around comic shops, and specifically spotlight stores offering Safe Services (like curbside and mail order options), using the #BoostYourLCS hashtag to reach over 360,000 fans worldwide. A full list of BOOM! Guarantee and Safe Service retailers (with regular updates) can be found right here.
  • Rare Variant Cover Gift Set: BOOM! Studios will offer retailers a direct cash infusion by providing previously released rare and popular variant covers for free to qualifying Diamond accounts in April. These gifts will create an opportunity for retailers to generate additional revenue and promotion at no cost. For retailers who do not normally sell variant covers at an increased price, these can be used to reward loyal pull-box subscribers or used to further incentivize customer engagement as prizes or purchasing rewards.
  • Monthly 1-Per Store Variant Covers: BOOM! Studios will provide a new, previously unannounced 1-per-store variant every month through December 2020 free to qualifying Diamond accounts. This program will begin with a new 1-per store variant for Faithless II #1 in April, followed by Mighty Morphin Power Rangers #51 in May, and Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Willow #1 in June.
  • Diamond Summit Variant: BOOM! Studios will deliver their promised free Diamond Summit retailer variant cover for Faithless II #1 to all qualifying stores in April so that retailers don’t miss out on this hotly anticipated issue.
  • Exclusive Convention Variant Opportunities: BOOM! Studios will offer select variant covers and other items previously planned for 2020 conventions direct to retailers through Diamond, as long as supplies last. Since fans can’t go to conventions, they’re bringing the conventions to the fans!

This program includes BOOM! Studios’ support and participation in future industry-wide, coordinated joint initiatives with Diamond Comic Distributors and other participating publishers to benefit and support comic book stores.

Diamond Comic Distributors and BOOM! Studios will be sharing more information directly with retailers as soon as it is finalized to clearly outline how to receive benefits from the BOOM! Retailer Support Services Program.

Daphne was just getting used to living with ghosts, but when a mysterious door in the basement flies open, Rycroft Manor is overwhelmed with even more strange phenomena than anyone knows how to deal with.
