Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Amazing Fantasy #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.

Amazing Fantasy #1 (Marvel) – There’s some cachet when it comes to the title of this series so we want to see what Marvel brings to the table with this series which brings together classic versions of popular characters.

Barbaric #2 (Vault Comics) – The first issue caught us off guard. It took the classic barbarian type story and delivered a nice twist to it. Add in great art and this is a series we’re excited to read more of.

Black Beacon #1 (Heavy Metal) – An intergalactic space station sounds great to go to, it sounds like utopia. But, when Niko gets there she finds it’s anything but.

Black Widow #9 (Marvel) – The series has been a blast with every issue mixing humor and action. One of the consistently fun Marvel comics on the shelf right now.

BRZRKR #4 (BOOM! Studios) – The series has been surprisingly good so far. While it delivers bloody action, it also is a fascinating exploration of its character B and the destruction he’s delivered through his lifetimes.

Groo Meets Tarzan #1 (Dark Horse) – Groo is always entertaining and this crossover has so much potential. We’re excited to see what these two properties together are like.

I Am Not Starfire (DC Comics) – The highly anticipated graphic novel about Mandy, the superhero Starfire’s daughter.

Icon & Rocket: Season One #1 (DC Comics/Milestone) – Milestone launched with a fantastic debut and we’re excited to see more and this new take on this iconic duo.

The Last Book You’ll Ever Read #1 (Vault Comics) – Cullen Bunn’s writing so we’re interested in checking it out just for that. A hit book is being blamed for violence and bloodshed around the world and the writer is determined to conduct a book tour.

Lucy in the Sky (First Second) – Lucy discovers her father’s collection of Beatles records and is inspired to form an all-girl rock band.

Mirka Andolfo’s Sweet Paprika #1 (Image Comics) – Mirka Andolfo is one of the hot creators out there right now so any debut gets a look from us.

The Other History of the DC Universe #5 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – The series started with Jefferson Pierce so it’s fitting that it ends with a focus on his daughter Anissa Pierce.

Runes #1 (Source Point Press) – A prisoner escapes after a shipwreck and must fight for his life in hopes of revenge.

Shadow Doctor #5 (AfterShock) – The series has been amazing with every issue. It’s the true story of a Black doctor in the 1930s who has to turn to Al Capone to get his medical practice up and running.

Skybound X #4 (Image Comics/Skybound) – Each issue has been a fantastic highlight of what Skybound has to offer including debuts that are sure to make the issues sought after.

Static: Season One #2 (DC Comics/Milestone) – The first issue was fantastic and was a hell of a debut for Milestone. We loved the first issue which had a fresh youthful feel about it and we’re fascinated to see where it goes after the previous issue’s ending.

Swamp God #1 (Heavy Metal) – At the end of the Civil War, Confederate soldiers call upon ultimate evil to save the South but then must team with Union soldiers to survive the horror they’ve unleashed.

United States of Captain America #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a bit mixed in quality but at its core is a very interesting exploration of Captain America and what the character stands for and symbolizes.

The hit monster hunting podcast Bubble comes to comics!

While the characters are the same, the images and storyline additions offer a whole new layer of context for fans of the podcast to devour.
