Deadpool has a lot of unfinished business in his inbox, and he’s determined to take care of it before…any sort of bad and permanent-ish thing happens to him. Revenge on Stevil Rogers? Settling things with Rogue? Oh, and doesn’t he still need to kill a few more folks? It’s time to get Wade’s affairs in order. You know, just in case…

• Yeah – Deadpool’s still on a mission to bump off his best buddy Cable…but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have time to fight some DINOSAURS.
• Because who wouldn’t want to punch a dinosaur?

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.


Top Pick: Detective Comics #967 (DC Comics) – The alternate Batman version of Tim hanging around is exciting. Seeing him as Batman is as shocking as it was interesting. I’ve heard fans get into it over the years on which Robin would be the best Batman, and Tim is always ignored. Is this a glimpse of the future or a fun what if?

The Flash #33 (DC Comics) – This is another Metal tie in, and everything that’s come out of this event so far has been fantastic. I trust that this will be no different.

Despicable Deadpool #288 (Marvel) – Classic Deadpool vs Cable continues in this fun chase through time as the merc with a mouth has Cable’s arm and with it, his A.I. technology. I can’t to see where this arc goes.

Batman: The Merciless #1 (DC Comics) – Another of the Dark Knights gets their own book and origin story. This time we get Tomasi on writing and the fantastic Manapul on art.

DC House of Horror #1 (DC Comics) – It’s that time of year, Halloween, and with it comes a big book of fright in the DC universe. This looks like it could be spooky fun.



Top Pick: Eternity #1 (Valiant)Divinity is one of my favorite series, and judging from the first issue the sequel is going to be glorious. I’ve already read this, but I’m super excited to see the art without the watermarked review copy as we go into the cosmos once again.

Bloodshot Salvation #2 and X-O Manowar #8 (Valiant) – Two of Valiant’s best series are hitting shelves the same week and the’re not my top pick? This is one hell of a week! It’s no secret I love Valiant, so these picks should astonish none of you… but this week’s Valiant offerings have me super frigging excited.


Mr. H

Top Pick: Detective Comics #967 (DC Comics) – Tim Drake: Dark Batman of the Future. I cannot get enough of this story line. I remember when the “Future Titans” storyline ran in Teen Titans it was fantastic. To see the bright team turned so dark was awesome. I have always been a huge Tim Drake fan as he is the natural successor in Bruce’s detective skills. How refreshing Detective Comics featuring a top notch detective. Seeing our Tim Drake meet himself has been too cool. I am hoping we get a Tim as Batman mini – series out of the deal. This is an easy top pick for me.

Batman: The Merciless #1 (DC Comics) – So far these Metal tie ins have been great. I like the idea of Bruce and Diana as an item here and Bruce is treated to more pain by losing his love. The mash up of Batman/ Wonder Woman traits should be very entertaining. I expect another good read here from the Metal tie ins. Just move along to get me to the Man who Laughs! I think Tomasi and Manapul will rock the house here. It’s freaking Metal,man! Rock on!!

WWE #10 (BOOM Studios) – Being a die hard wrestling fan, this series is gold. The way the creative team jumps rope with the line between kayfabe and reality is so terrific. Right now we are in the middle of a story with the spotlight firmly on The Big Dog: Roman Reigns. It should be said that this comic makes me do something that WWE telelvision hasn’t done in a long time: Cheer for Roman. I can’t get enough of this series and I love all the variants as well. Great book. OOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!



Top Pick: Verax: The True History of Whistleblowers, Mass Surveillance, and Drone Warfare (Metropolitan Books) – Everything you need to know as to why this is at the top of my list is in the description. Pratap Chatterjee, journalist sleuth, dives deep into the world of electronic surveillance and introduces its cast of characters: developers, companies, users, government agencies, whistleblowers, journalists, and, in a leading role, the devices themselves. He explains the complex ways governments follow the movements and interactions of individuals and countries, whether by tracking the players of Angry Birds, deploying “Stingrays” that listen in on phone calls or “deep packet inspection” that mines email, or by weaponizing programs with names like Howlermonkey and Godsurge to attack the infrastructure of states such as Iran and remotely guide the U.S. missiles used in drone killings. He chronicles the complicity of corporations like Apple, Verizon, and Google, and the daring of the journalists and whistleblowers who made sure that the world would know.

Action Comics #990 (DC Comics) – “The Oz Effect” shouldn’t work, but it totally does as things devolve even more and the confrontation between father, son, and son happens. I have no idea where this is going but it feels like it’s building up to something big.

Gotham City Garage #2 (DC Comics) – DC characters reimagined as bikers fighting a fascist government in a dystopian world. What’s not to like?

First Strike #6 (IDW Publishing) – This comic is every battle I made up as a kid where my toys fought each other on the basement floor (with Cybertron as a replacement for my LEGO city).

Goosebumps: Monsters at Midnight #1 (IDW Publishing) – The classic kids books come to comics for a whole new generation and a generation that’s nostalgic to check them out again.

Deadpool’s going back to his vile beginnings as a mercenary and wanted killer. No more being a hero. No more X-Men. No more Avengers. And if he wants to break bad again, what’s more despicable than killing your best friend? Cable better get ready because his old friend Wade has him in the crosshairs.

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.


Top Pick: Ragman #1 (DC Comics) – I’ve always been fond of this character: a Jewish vigilante preying on Gotham City criminals by harnessing the strength of the Souls of the Guilty as a redemptive force to help them reach heaven. Originally created by Robert Kanigher and Joe Kubert back in 1976, he is now reimagined by the capable Ray Fawkes and Inaki Miranda.

Catalyst Prime Noble Vol 2 #1 (Lion Forge Comics) – Thus begins the second arc as Noble continues his quest to uncover the truth, but spurns his wife who must now fight to get the husband she knew back. It is penned by Brandon Thomas with art by Roger Robinson; and this week features a brilliant cover by Khary Randoph and Emilio Lopez!

Dying and the Dead #6 (Image Comics) – For a while I thought Hickman and Bodenheim had given up on this project. I’m glad they continued with the series centered on an aged commando team doing the dirty work for a secretive sect of Immortals.

BabyTeeth #5 (AfterShock Comics) – Donny Cates has been belting hit after hit, and this is no exception. marines, assassins, mom, and her newborn Antichrist are the frontliners in this well written action-packed series, featuring art by Garry Brown.

Grass Kings #8 (BOOM! Studios) – A well-crafted mystery series set in a fringe town of outcasts, produced by Matt Kindt and Tyler Jenkins.





Top Pick: Dark Knights: Metal #3 (DC Comics) – This event/story has been so crazy that it just works. Even the tie in books with Gotham Resistance, and all of the other Dark Knights has kept me excited and interested in something that’s creepy, bizarre, and fun. I am throwing up the devil horns on this one! Highly recommended!

Mister Miracle #3 (DC Comics) – Tom King is one of the best writers around, and most people would agree with that. Now add in an older and fun Kirby character and much like King did with Vision, throw him into something new, and you have an edge of your seat formula. King does vulnerable very good, and this has been fantastic so far.

Despicable Deadpool #287 (Marvel) – Deadpool vs. Cable, or at least that’s what this book is making us think. It’s a classic fight between two over the top characters that are getting ready to buddy up or fight in the Deadpool 2 movie. The solicits say Deadpool is turning back into more of a villain, since he has been down on his luck, and has made some pretty major mistakes lately. I am hyped for this one.

Royal City #6 (Image Comics) – Jeff Lemire is one of the best creators in comics right now. I love his writing. I love his art, and I love this series. This follows a family that while it plays with some supernatural elements, it feels very real, and full of emotions. The first trade released just recently, so grab it and see what all the fuss is about.

Animosity Vol. 2 TP (AfterShock Comics) – If you haven’t read this series, then now is the time to grab both trades. It’s a post-apocalyptic world run by animals who can speak. Some want peace, some want revenge, and the humans must do what they can to survive. It’s a lot of fun, and sad at times, but it is an awesome concept and execution.



Top Pick: Falcon #1 (Marvel) – Marvel Legacy has been kicking off and it’ll be interesting to see where this character and series goes, especially considering the entire concept of Captain America has been tarnished and Sam Wilson’s own recent series.

Fighting American #1 (Titan Comics) – The classic character is back and it’s great to see it. I have no idea what to expect but this is one I’ve been looking forward to reading.

Ghost Money #3 (Lion Forge Comics) – The first two issues have been intriguing as all the money gained from 9/11 is explored. Interesting plot and things have really been picking up.

Lazaretto #2 (BOOM! Studios) – A horror comic featuring college students quarantined in a dorm at a college. It’s claustrophobic in all the right ways.

Mech Cadet Yu #3 (BOOM! Studios) – Kids and giant robots! Greg Pak’s writing is absolutely amazing and the art is a really interesting style that enhances the youthful feel of the book. Absolutely love this series.
