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.

Shay

Hit Girl #5 (Image Comics) – I’m excited to see what she does to the Canadians after all the chaos and pain she caused the Colombians in this new story arc.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Season 12, The Reckoning (Dark Horse Comics) – One year later and the title is the RECKONING so you know it’s gonna be bad news but good action.

Harley Quinn #44 (DC Comics) – Harley is the good guy and really ticked off about her fave bodega going boom boom bye bye.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Flavor #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was adorable and I can’t wait to read the second of this series focused on a young woman attempting to take care of her parents and run a bakery.

Infidel #4 (Image Comics) – Fantastic horror with a twist with a focus on Islamophobia. Just great.

James Bond: The Body #6 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Wrapping up the series and it’s a good one bringing all the pieces of the puzzle together.

Skyward #3 (Image Comics) – The concept is fantastic and issues entertaining. An Earth where gravity has gone away and there’s a conspiracy about it all and evil corporations that have profited. It’s really good so far.

Tony Stark: Iron Man #1 (Marvel) – Dan Slott moves from spiders to iron men and this first issue is his treatise as to who Tony Stark and Iron Man are. It’s a good first issue and a perfect starting point.

Review: Nancy Drew #1

Dynamite Entertainment takes on the classic story of Nancy Drew—created by an all-female team—Kelly Thompson and Jenn St-Ong. Thompson’s writing is effortless and well-rounded. While Farrell’s art is fun and reminiscent of a more classic newspaper comic style with a more modern twist. It’s even worth mentioning the coloring by Triona Farrell who is rather impressive in skill.

With resourceful friends, Mia and Noah, Ms. Drew takes on local high school crime. It seems our leading lady is also in high school but it’s never explicitly stated. So far there is no sign of parents or caretakers, so one is left to wonder if perhaps she is college-age. This comes into question when she finds herself drawn back to her hometown, Bayport, due to a suspect, anonymous, and threatening letter—and she is able to hop on a train without question or a care in the world.

Once in Bayport, Drew is greeted by former best friends, Bess and George. It’s incredibly refreshing to see realistic portrayals of people throughout—from plus-size friendly folk, characters of color, and LGBTQ+ friends—this story is all encompassing. While it appears this is becoming more common and normalized in the comic book community, it’s still exciting to see stories come to life without making a statement about what it’s trying to be, but simply is.

There is also a special appearance by (and spoiler alert) the Hardy boys—surely to bring about a spin-off—and the t issue ends on a literal cliffhanger. It will leave you anxious, wanting more, and to see where this adventure will go. This new series will be a great gift for grade five or six and above, but overall fit for the entire family, including you comic-loving adults.

Would recommend across the board.

Nancy Drew is seventeen and good at everything…ESPECIALLY solving crimes. But her totally-in-control-and-obviously-running-perfectly- smooth-(but-not-really) life hits a snag when a mysterious message drags her back to the hometown she left behind. There she’ll have to find out which of her friends are still her friends, which are enemies, and who exactly is trying to kill her…and (hopefully) stop them before they succeed. KELLY THOMPSON (Hawkeye, Star Wars, Rogue & Gambit) and JENN ST-ONGE (Giant Days, The Misfits) team up to present an all-new modern spin on a classic mystery icon!
