Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Transformers: Galaxies #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.

Bad Reception #2 (Aftershock) – The first issue was fantastic with an Agatha Christie vibe and commentary on modern technology. Hoping for more of the same with the second issue.

Batman/Superman #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue setting up the next major story of corrupted heroes was surprisingly good. With an evil Shazam now staring at our heroes, this issue should be full of action and excitement.

Bloodshot #1 (Valiant) – It’s a new beginning for the classic character as Valiant begins to focus on the upcoming film.

Chris Ware’s Rusty Brown (Pantheon Books) – Chris Ware’s latest highly anticipated graphic novel that takes on nothing less than humanity and existence.

Criminal #8 (Image Comics) – Stil one of the best comics on the market. If you like crime stories, it’s a must get.

Frogcatchers (Gallery 13) – Jeff Lemire’s latest graphic novel is a surreal descent into one man’s psychosis.

Harleen #1 (DC Comics/DC’s Black Label) – Stejpan Sejic takes on Harley Quinn and we’re beyond excited to see the result.

Meyer (Humanoids) – An imaginary biography of the legendary Jewish mobster as he attempts to organize his last con job. It just sounds fun.

New Mutants: War Children #1 (Marvel) – Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz reteam for this never before told story of the New Mutants’ past.

The Plot #1 (Vault Comics) – A new horror story from Michael Moreci, Tim Daniel, and Josh Hixson in time for Halloween.

Powers of X #5 (Marvel) – We’ve been debating a lot internally about this series but no matter good or bad, we all want to see where this goes.

Red Winter #3 (Scout Comics) – We thought this was a straight-up gangster series set in Russia but the end of the second issue has our heads still spinning and wanting to see what’s next.

Relics of Youth #1 (Vault Comics) – Teenagers around the world deam of a mysterious island. Then one day they all wake up with tattoos only six of them can see. It’s a mysterious discovery of an unknown paradise.

SFSX #1 (Image Comics) – This was to be a part of Vertigo’s relaunch but not so much. That alone has us intrigued.

Snowpiercer: Extinction (Titan Comics) – A prequel to the fantastic sci-fi series. We love the originals and can’t wait for anything new in this universe.

Strikeforce #1 (Marvel) – Blade, Angela, Spider-Woman, Wiccan, the Winter Soldier, Monica Rambeau and Daimon Hellstrom join forces and that lineup alone has us excited.

Transformers Galaxies #1 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Transformers relaunch has a bit mixed in quality but a new series focused on the Constructicans has us intrigued.

Review: All the Answers

Joel Kupperman became one of the most famous children in America during World War II as one of the young geniuses on the series Quiz Kids. With the uncanny ability to perform complex math problems in his head, Joel endeared himself to audiences across the country and became a national obsession. Following a childhood spent in the public eye, only to then fall victim to the same public’s derision, Joel deliberately spent the remainder of his life removed from the world at large. With wit and heart, Michael Kupperman presents a fascinating account of mid-century radio and early television history, the pro-Jewish propaganda entertainment used to counteract anti-Semitism, and the early age of modern celebrity culture.

This graphic memoir is out in book stores now and comic stores May 16th. To find a comic shop near you, visit http://www.comicshoplocator.com or call 1-888-comicbook or digitally and online with the links below.

Review: Roughneck

When I was in grade school, it was the first time, history class caught my attention. I was not like most students, who gravitated towards classes like Math or gym, as I did enjoy those as well, but history was my first obsession. It was something instilled in me from an early age, as the stories I heard from both sides of my family, always triggered my need to find out more. I even remembered when I read a book about anything history related, I would eventually look up the books that are referenced in the book.

The one part of history, that got me to hate an American President, was the trail of tears.  From what I read, I could not believe an American president would subdue America’s own indigenous peoples to such a grave injustice. As I eventually found out through my research, is that he was not the only one, and America is not the only country to treat their native peoples like second class citizens. The long-term effects of this history, can be seen on their descendants, which is the story Jeff Lemire lays out in Roughneck.

In the town of Pimitamon, a county in the wilderness of Canada, mostly populated by Canada’s indigenous tribes, we meet Derek Ouelette, a former professional hockey player, who is an alcoholic with an anger problem and who feels his best days are behind, as he works as a janitor, for the local ice rink. His sister, Bethy, comes back to town, running away from an abusive boyfriend, who is a drug addict, and whose life doesn’t seem to have shaped the way she thought it was going to. As this brother and sister, deal with their own personal demons, and trying to support each other in some semblance of what they feel a family is, they eventually hide out in a cabin, as her boyfriend is getting closer to where she is. By book’s end, a fight between Derek and Bethy’s boyfriend happens, but Derek is saved by the local police before things get dire.

Overall, a tear-jerking and enthralling book that will have the reader rooting for Derek and Bethy to love each other and love themselves. The story by Lemire is powerful and heartfelt. The art by Lemire is beautiful. Altogether, a book that although the world is unfair, love still finds a way.

Review: Park Bench

Serialized television, feels like a spin cycle, as it rarely challenges status quo. Take any episode of Law and Order and just about any episode you watch, had already been done on the show, but in a different way. Very few challenge the viewer’s perceptions, or make them face their demons. It is even rarer where they see someone they know on television.

That is why when I first heard and finally saw Room 104, I was quite blown away, how they show these different people in the same rooms react to their own situations within this confined space. Each episode peered into each person’s life while showing some very recognizable people in different shapes, ages, and races. It really made me wonder why more auteurs don’t do work that challenges the viewer, make them uncomfortable and make them think. The show was popped in my mind when I read Christophe Chabouté’s Park Bench, a wordless study in human behavior with an inanimate behavior.

Chabouté introduces the reader to   this one park bench situated in the middle of this particular  park, as people from all walks of lives, steal a moment for themselves. As each occupant of the bench, either by themselves or with someone else, leave a little of themselves on this bench. Some sit on this bench once, as one man gets stood up by what seems to be a date, while others sit on the bench multiple times like the elderly couple. By book’s end, each occupant, is at their most vulnerable.

Overall, a beautifully introspective book which will make you question life’s many questions and your role as citizen of the world. The stories by Chabouté are tragic, melodramatic, funny and meditative. The art by by Chabouté is gorgeous. Altogether, an excellent book which proves Chabouté is a master storytelling.
