Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Spencer & Locke 2 #2

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.

Ascender #2 (Image Comics) – Did you read the first issue? If you did, you know why this is on our list. The follow up to Descender does for magic and fantasy what that series did for sci-fi.

Batman: Last Knight on Earth #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo team again for Batman’s final story.

Doomsday Clock #10 (DC Comics) – We’ve already read the issue and this is what we’ve been waiting for. A ho-hum event finally gets good and there’s honestly some fantastic stuff explored here.

Heroes in Crisis #9 (DC Comics) – We’ve already read this one too and while it doesn’t quite stick the landing it is a decent ending to this rocky event.

Killer Groove #1

Killer Groove #1 (Aftershock) – It’s rock ‘n’ roll crime set in the 70s and the mix of music and crime alone has us excited to check this out.

Sham #1 (Source Point Press) – It’s public domain comics rewritten for our entertainment.

She Said Destroy #1 (Vault Comics) – Goddesses and their worshippers battle!

Spencer & Locke 2 #2 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – This series has been rocking it in its second volume which ups the action and has one hell of a villain.

Star Trek: Year Five #2 (IDW Publishing) – Are you a Star Trek fan? We are, and we’re finally getting our fifth year of the mission!!!

Stranger Things: Six #1 (Dark Horse) – The popular series comes to comics and we’re intrigued to see how comics expands the world and characters.

Superman: Leviathan Rising Special #1 (DC Comics) – This seems like it’s going to be a pretty big deal as far as a storyline.

This Was Our Pact (First Second) – Stand by Me meets My Neighbor Totoro in this astonishing, magical-realist adventure story for middle-grade readers. Yeah, we’re sold on that description.

Voracious: Appetite For Destruction #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – If you haven’t read the previous two volumes, you’re missing out. This series has some solid twists and turns about a chef whose secret incredients are dinosaurs. We’re not ruining it.

Wailing Blade #1 (Comixtribe) – We backed this series on Kickstarter as it reminded us a bit of Battlechasers in the exaggerated fantasy style. It’s some fun action in an oversized first issue.

X-Men: Grand Design – X-Tinction #1 (Marvel) – Ed Piskor continues his amazing take on the X-Men’s history.

ComixTribe’s SINK Vol 1: Welcome to Glasgow is Up on Kickstarter

A forgotten East End district of a warped funhouse mirror vision of Glasgow, Scotland, Sinkhill is a hive of crooks, deviants and killers, and ordinary folk unfortunate enough to live among them.

If killer clowns prowl the streets in a blue van, a shovel-wielding vigilante in a fox mask serves brutal justice after dark, and the last bus home is always full of corpses, well, pal…

You must be in Sinkhill!

ComixTribe has been shaking things up when it comes to comics and comic marketing, especially with their series SINK. Not only have they been creating the usual printed issues (which have sold out and become collectors items) but they have also built buzz with free digital issues before the releases.

Now, the publisher is using Kickstarter to print the first volume of the series. A 160-page perfect bound collection, there’s a few different options to get the trade. Not only does it feature the comics but also pin-ups, galleries, bonus tales, and more… plus a soundtrack to listen to while you read!

As I said, they’re willing to do things differently and on their campaign you can find a download to the first issue for free and there’s also a “money back guarantee.”

If you’re a fan of horror, this is a must get from a company with a proven record for delivery.

The campaign runs through April 24th so don’t delay.

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.

30 Days of Night #1 (IDW Publishing) – A reimagining of the classic horror series.

Assassinistas #1 (IDW Publishing) – Mom’s an assassin who spent her sons’ tuition on new guns. Guess the son needs to get a job helping mom! Quirky concept, sounds like a lot of fun.

Backways #1 (AfterShock) – Writer Justin Jordan does Harry Potter… which is intriguing.

Catalyst Prime: Accell Vol. 2 #2 (Lion Forge Comics) – Lion Forge continues to entertain and their speedster is full of excitement and energy.

Catalyst Prime: Summit #1 (Lion Forge Comics) – A new entry in Lion Forge’s Catalyst Prime universe. Any new release, we’re intrigued and must check it out.

Curse Words: Holiday Special (Image Comics) – Have you been reading Curse Words? If not, you’re missing out.

Dark Ark #4 (AfterShock) – A new take on Noah’s ark, but this is the other arc, with all of the monsters. The last issue pivoted the series and we’re excited to see what’s next.

Dark Nights: Metal #4 (DC Comics) – Holy crap, holy crap, holy crap.

Fence #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue was amazing. The series is a western take on sports manga. It’s so good!

Hellboy: Krampusnacht #1 (Dark Horse) – Hellboy does Christmas. Nuff said.

Marvel Two-In-One #1 (Marvel) – If you’ve never read an issue of this classic series, it’s a lot of fun. Here’s hoping this new one captures that of the original.

Rom & the Micronauts #1 (IDW Publishing) – Two properties coming together. We’re intrigued.

Sink #3 (ComixTribe) – Maybe the most disturbing comic series of the year?

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #15 (Marvel) – If you don’t know Aphra, you’re missing out. Think Indiana Jones but in Star Wars.

Star Wars: Poe Dameron #22 (Marvel) – Filling in the gaps of the Star Wars universe.

Tales of Suspense #100 (Marvel) – Another classic Marvel title returns! This one’s exploring the “death” of the Black Widow.

Transformers: Optimus Prime #14 (IDW Publishing) – Optimus vs. Dinobots.

Transformers: Till All Are One Annual 2017 (IDW Publishing) – Wrapping up this series, one that’s been full of political intrigue and giant robots.

Quantum and Woody (2017) #1 (Valiant Entertainment) – If you’ve never read Quantum and Wody, you’re missing out. A new series that’ll get you to laugh.

X-Men: Grand Design #1 (Marvel) – Ed Piskor takes on the X-Men.


ComixTribe’s Sink #2 Has Already Sold Out

ComixTribe is an indie publisher that has been one to watch when it comes to their marketing and their series regularly sell-out resulting in hard to find comics. The publisher has announced that Sink #2 has already sold out before it’s released November 8.

Sink #1 was released late last month and the comic solid out through the first printing (which caused retailers to reach out about exclusive special edition variants). The comic was released AFTER the order for Sink #2 were due, so, combine an under the radar comic with a first issue sell-out and a convoluted ordering system and you get a hot comic. Mix in a low print run and you’ve got a comic that’s often harder to find than the first.

Due to buzz from the first issue an a big advance order for Sink #2 has already come in and that’s that, the first printing is sold out. There’s still a few issues for retailers to order through their distributor though.

Long story short, if you want Sink #2 it’s best to hit up your comic shop and place one in your pull box.
