Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

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 are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

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

Alex

Top Pick: Ninja-K #9 (Valiant) – Why? Because my favorite Valiant character might come back to life here, and I can’t wait to see Gilad Anni-Padda again!

Quantum and Woody #8 (Valiant) – Eliot Rahal has been flawless since taking over from Daniel Kibblesmith on writing duties, and now that he’s added a new Klang-less dynamic to the duo… I’m looking forward to seeing where he takes them.

Immortal Hulk #3 (Marvel) – I don’t remember the last time the Hulk was this genuinely scary – or this good. If you’re not reading this, you’re missing out.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Transformers: Optimus Prime #21 (IDW Publishing) – This is more a curiosity of how this will end. We have a big event that has started taking place after this series wraps up. I want to know how we get from A to B badly!

Aphrodite V #1 (Top Cow/Image Comics) – The imprint has been relaunching their big characters and I’m intrigued to see what they do with this classic of theirs. There’s a lot of potential to update things to modern socio/political times and say a lot.

Batman #51 (DC Comics) – This is on the list for the same reason you stop to see a car wreck. Catwoman left the Bat, I want to see what’s next.

Fence #8 (BOOM! Studios) – This series about fencing has been absolutely amazing with every single issue. Beyond fantastic.

Life of Captain Marvel #1 (Marvel) – A new direction and spin on the storytelling… I’m in.

BOOM! Studios Delivers Ben 10 Graphic Novels

In the lead up to San Diego Comic-Con, BOOM! Studios has announced that the company has acquired the comic book and graphic novel license to Cartoon Network’s animated series Ben 10.

The first release from this partnership will be Ben 10: The Truth is Out There, an all-new original graphic novel by Rainbow Award-winning writer CB Lee and artist Lidan Chen in March 2019. Ben 10: The Truth is Out There, based on Cartoon Network’s 2017 relaunched franchise, is the first in a series of original graphic novels that will anchor BOOM! Studios’ publishing program for the property.

Ben 10 introduces fun loving, 10-year-old, Ben Tennyson, his cousin Gwen and Grandpa Max, as they travel the country during summer vacation. Once Ben finds the Omnitrix, a mysterious watch that transforms him into 10 different heroic aliens, a world of extraterrestrial superpowers opens up to him. Ben 10 is produced by Cartoon Network Studios and created and executive produced by Man of Action Entertainment.

Ben 10: The Truth is Out There features a cover by artist Ling Chen.
