Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Metal Society #5

Wednesdays (and 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.

007 #2 (Dynamite) – The first issue delivered a solid take on James Bond that felt like the start to a film. We’re excited to check out the new villain.

Alien #1 (Marvel) – A new volume begins and this one begins to focus on a small colony of synths.

All-Out Avengers #1 (Marvel) – A new Avengers series? We’re intrigued to see where this goes.

Antioch #1 (Image Comics) – Spinning out of Frontiersman, a king attempting to stop man from killing the planet finds himself in a superhuman prison.

Batman: Dear Detective #1 (DC Comics) – Stringing together the amazing art of Lee Bermejo into a narrative.

Everyday Hero Machine Boy (Skybound/Image Comics) – We got a tease of the series already but it feels like a great wholesome robot trying to be a superhero story full of smiles and feels.

Golden Rage #2 (Image Comics) – Older women are thrown on an island where they battle it out! The first issue was great and we’re excited for more!

Highball #1 (AHOY Comics) – The best shot in the galaxy can only hit the target when he’s dead drunk. Sounds like it has potential.

Kali (Dark Horse Comics) – Stabbed in the back, poisoned, and left for dead by her own biker gang; Kali sets off on a one-way road of vengeance across a war-torn desert battlefield. Sounds like our kind of story.

Last Line #1 (AfterShock) – A driver on the tube swears a man was pushed in front of her train but the video and witnesses says otherwise.

The Lost Gardens #1 (Rabbit Hole Studios) – Defects in his technology implants sends a man spiraling downward by the economic forces to be.

Metal Society #5 (Image Comics) – The final issue!? Who will win in this MMA battle between man and machine?

Mind MGMT: Bootleg #3 (Dark Horse Comics) – The series continues to be the amazing twisted mind trip we expected and loved.

New Rat City #1 (Scout Comics) – Pests run rampant across the city in the year 2083 after years of floods and infrastructure mismanagement.

Shock Shop #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – A new horror story from Cullen Bunn? Yeah, we’re in. You can read our early review.

Survivor: Aron’s Story (Graphic History Publishing) – The life of Aron and his survival under Nazi occupation and the history of Jewish Disapora.

Vanity #2 (Black Caravan/Scout Comics) – The second chapter in the biopic of the legendary Blood Countess Elizabeth Bathory.

Skybound Launches a New YA and Middle Grade Graphic Novel Imprint Skybound Comet

Skybound Comet

Skybound has announced that Skybound Comet, a new original graphic novel imprint aimed at Young Adult (ages 12+) and Middle Grade (ages 8-12) audiences, will launch next year everywhere books are sold.

Skybound Comet officially takes flight in July 2022 with Clementine Book One, beginning a trilogy set in the world of Robert Kirkman’s The Walking Dead, from award-winning writer/artist Tillie Walden. This will be followed by the original graphic novel Everyday Hero Machine Boy from rising star voices Tri Vuong and Irma Kniivila in September 2022, and then Sea Serpent’s Heir Book One, kicking off a fantasy trilogy from acclaimed creators Mairghread Scott and Pablo Tunica, in October 2022.

It’s a new beginning for Clementine, the star of the bestselling video game franchise Telltale’s The Walking Dead, in Clementine Book One, as she’s back on the road, looking to put her traumatic past behind her and forge new path all her own. But when she comes across an Amish teenager named Amos with his head in the clouds, the unlikely pair journeys North to an abandoned ski resort in Vermont, where they meet up with a small group of teenagers attempting to build a new, walker-free settlement. As friendship, rivalry, and romance begin to blossom amongst the group, the harsh winter soon reveals that the biggest threat to their survival…might be each other.    

Clementine makes her first comic book appearance in Skybound X #1, available in comic shops and at digital providers on July 7, 2021.

In Everyday Hero Machine Boy, the titular hero falls from the sky to the domed city of Mega 416, leaving a wake of destruction in his path…until Karate Grandpa is able to turn on his heart. Now, Machine Boy wants nothing more than to become a hero! Whether he is fighting giant bugs in the school’s basement, rescuing cats from trees, or making the perfect spaghetti sauce, Machine Boy is always looking for the best way to help others. But when his heart begins to interact dangerously with other debris from space, Machine Boy wonders if he can be a power for good after all.  

Machine Boy makes his first comic book appearance in Skybound X #2, available in comic shops and at digital providers on July 14, 2021.

The end of the world is coming in Sea Serpent’s Heir Book One as a teen named Aella on Kinamen Isle spends her days fishing and minding her aunts, dreaming of life beyond the horizon. Everything changes, however, when she awakens an ancient evil within herself as it’s revealed that she’s the reincarnation of Xir, the serpent that almost destroyed the world. Worse yet, a fanatical religious organization has arrived on Kinamen Isle in search of Xir.

Aella makes her first comic book appearance in Skybound X #4, available in comic shops and at digital providers on July 28, 2021.
