Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Black Widow #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) 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 week.

Baloney & Friends (Disney Hyperion) – A really cute graphic novel for young readers. Check out our review.

Black Widow #1 (Marvel) – Black Widow is back in her own series! We’ve read the first issue and we’re beyond intrigued by this spy/action series.

DCeased: Dead Planet #3 (DC Comics) – What’s in the “green” on the other side of the world? We find out and it’s interesting! A lot is dropped this issue about the real threat at hand.

Grendel Kentucky #1 (AWA Studios) – A small town has a monster they sacrifice a person to every season but, what happens when the town breaks that deal?

Inkblot #1 (Image Comics) – Emma Kubert and Rusty Gladd’s new high-fantasy epic series about a sorceress attempting to correct her greatest mistake.

Lonely Receiver #1 (AfterShock) – A horror/breakup story in five parts.

Marvel Zombies Resurrection #1 (Marvel) – A new volume and take on the popular Marvel Zombies series. It’s a familiar plot but well done and we’re excited to see where it all goes.

My Little Pony/Transformers #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue caught us off guard at how well it worked and how fun it was. We’re excited to see what else the series has up its sleeve.

Strange Adventures #5 (DC Comics) – The series is a long game in that each issue is just a slice of the bigger puzzle. A threat looms over Earth and Adam Strange may be the one who has to save it.

We Only Find Them When They’re Dead #1 (BOOM! Studios) – The latest BOOM! series with buzz. It’s already sold out before release.

Tenet Opens with a Nolan Best While New Mutants Brings in $10 million

New Mutants movie poster

It feels weird reporting weekend box office numbers but Hollywood and theaters are attempting to get back to normal despite reality. Tenet and New Mutants were the two big openers for the weekend with interesting results that are a bit hard to interpret.

Tenet opened with over $53 million in 41 international markets. That’s the biggest opening for director Christopher Nolan. Not surprisingly, Warner Bros. has been a bit cagey about data they’re releasing as far as the performance goes. For instance, the film opened in Canada where numbers were not released and it’s unknown if they will be or folded over into next weekend’s numbers.

The film begins to open in the U.S. this week for an official opening on Thursday for Labor Day weekend.

The final Fox “X” film, New Mutants opened to $7 million from 2,412 to take the top spot of the domestic box office. The film also earned $2.9 million from 10 international markets. The movie was a holdover from Disney’s purchase of 20th Century Fox.

The film has a reported budget between $67 and $100 million, a more modest amount compared to recent “X” releases. It’s hard to see how the film turns a profit in today’s environment and one wonders if the film would have faired better being sold for $25 on demand.

New Mutants has been savaged in reviews earning 32% on RottenTomatoes from critics and 53% from audiences as of this article. That’s on top of issues concerning white-washing and the inability of the film to get small details right like the spelling of the last name of one of the creators of the characters and comic series.

Theaters are at about half open compared to the same time last year. 2,500 theaters were open in the US and about 3,000 in Canada.

Bill & Ted Face the Music opened both on-demand and in theaters warned an estimated $1.1 million 1,007 locations. Because it opened on-demand in homes, major theater chains overlooked the film.
