Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Aero #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.

Aero #1 (Marvel) – The character gets her own series with an English translation of her origin and an all-new tale. Great to see this creation become more accessible.

Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #3 (DC Comics/IDW Publishing) – The series has been off the wall fun mashing up so much between DC and TMNT. Just sit back and enjoy the fun.

Charlie’s Angels vs. Bionic Woman #1 (Dynamite Entertainment) – How has it taken this long for this to happen?

DCeased #3 (DC Comics) – DC doing a zombie story? We had low expectations honestly since the concept has been done so many times before but this series has pleasantly surprised us so far.

Lois Lane #1 (DC Comics) – Lois gets her own series! In an age where journalists are “the enemy,” we’re expecting a lot from this series.

Ignited #2 (Humanoids/H1) – The first issue is fantastic. It’s a world where students seem to be getting powers set in the aftermath of a school shooting. An interesting concept that we want to learn more about.

No One Left to Fight #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – An anime/manga inspired series from Aubrey Sitterson and Fico Ossio about what happens when the hero grows older and there’s just no one left to fight.

Postal: Deliverance #1 (Image Comics/Top Cow Productions) – The new story arc finds Mark struggling with being the Mayor of Eden. A very underrated series about a town filled with criminals that’s worth checking out, especially with this new arc/starting point.

Sea of Stars #1 (Image Comics) – Jason Aaron and Dennis Hallum’s new series about space truckers. The fact Aaron is on board and he can do the amazing long game writing has us excited about this creator-owned series.

Space Bandits #1 (Image Comics/Millarworld) – The new series by Mark Millar with art by Matteo Scalera. It sounds like the heist/betrayal/revenge story but with Millar’s backing by Netflix, this one is a series to watch.

Spencer and Locke 2 #4 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The second volume wraps up with a bang. If you haven’t been reading this twisted tale, you’ve been missing out. It’s all revealed here and has us hoping for more.

Star Wars: Target Vader #1 (Marvel) – Bounty hunters go after Vader and the concept sounds too awesome to not read.

Test #1 (Vault Comics) – From Christopher Sebela and Jen Hickman, this series is a weird story about the need for liberation and technology.

Thumbs #2 (Image Comics) – The story about technology, revolution, and the government is right up our way and we’re enjoying the hell out of it.

The Walking Dead #193 (Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment) – Sounds like this’ll be a big issue! What the hell is going on? We’ll find out Wednesday.

Talking Comics –DCeased #2

Review: DCeased #2

DCeased #2

If the first issue of DCeased was the start of the zombie outbreak, the second is our first look at what remains. DCeased #2 has the world melting down as the infection spreads and our heroes are caught off guard. It takes us around the DC Universe focusing on a half dozen heroes and how they’re impacted. Some, it’s just not good. But, for the reader, it’s all excellent.

Writer Tom Taylor delivers an emotional punch in the issue. And Taylor does so multiple times. We get to experience the meltdown of the world through the eyes of heroes who have little they can do to stop it. Tough decisions are made. Some are forced to kill. And who dies is shocking at times.

Taylor delivers a ride of an issue and knows how to execute the gut punch to the reader. The last few pages are heart wrenching. The detail and thought that he’s put in to each situation is clear. It’s also clear choices have been made to deliver the best reaction emotionally from the reader. This isn’t a “zombie” comic. It’s a really smart zombie comic who has a focus not just on scares but also to connect with the reader.

That’s helped by the art team of Trevor Hairsine, inker Stefano Guadiano, colorist Rain Beredo, and letterer Saida Temofonte. It’s easy to create a zombie comic full of gore and grim. This team is doing something a bit smarter. There’s a focus on the reaction of individuals. You can see the impact on their faces and their body movement and position. That tells as much of an impact as everything else. Beredo’s color and Guadiano’s inks set a horror and dour mood without making it too dark and scary. Temofonte’s lettering really drives home the inflection and emotion of it all.

The comic is a hell of a second issue. DCeased #2 improves upon the first issue taking us away from traditional tropes and instead uses them to focus on something else. The first issue was good. This second issue is great. What started out as a riff on something we’ve seen so many times before is turning in to something truly spectacular.
