The Comichron – March 2015 sales mildly up as comics outperform graphic novels; Princess Leia #1 leads the charts – Good news.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Rebels #1 coverWednesdays 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!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

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

Brett

Top Pick: Rebels #1 (Dark Horse) – Brian Wood takes us to the past, the American Revolutionary War, in a new series that might be historical, but has some solid themes and points that reverberate today. Having read the first issue, it’s beyond fantastic and well worth checking out.

Convergence: The Questions #1 (DC Comics) – It’s written by Greg Rucka and art by Cully Hammer. Do you need any more reason to check out this comic? Out of everything to spin out of DC’s Convergence event, this one has me the most excited.

Copra Round Two (Bergen Street Comics) – Michel Fiffe’s Copra might seem like a knock-off of the Suicide Squad at first, but the series has evolved into a voice all its own. You probably can’t get individual issues in your store, but this trade collects what you’ve been missing out on.

Evil Empire #12 (BOOM! Studios) – I swear when I interviewed writer Max Bemis before the series launched it was going to be longer. But this is it in an oversized final issue. The series has focused on a President whose take over and brought pure chaos to the US. No idea how it’ll all wrap up in one final issue.

Imperium #3 (Valiant) – Speaking of crazy world leaders…. Valiant has taken on the concept of super human beings living in the real world head-on with this series which focuses on Toyo Harada attempting to bring about a Utopia, even if he has to fight and kill for it.

Edward

Top Pick: Grimm Fairy Tales White Queen #3 (Zenescope) – This miniseries has been compact and entertaining while also revealing some interesting bits of Calie’s past.  The promised White Queen versus Trickster battle looks pretty cool too.

Deep State #5 (BOOM! Studios) – The unexpected success of the first story arc drew many in and didn’t let them go.  It will be interesting to see what the creative time has lined up for an encore.

Jungle Girl Season 3 #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – A modern take on the jungle girl genre of the golden age.  This series doesn’t hold anything back in making the genre relevant to today’s readers.

Rebels #1 (Dark Horse) – This is a strange time and place for a comic book story to be set in (the American Revolutionary Wars), but it tells the first part of what seems like a compelling story.

Spider-Woman #6 (Marvel) – The reboot within a reboot was impressive enough.  It will be interesting to see where they take Jessica from here.
