Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

doom-patrol-1Wednesdays 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!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Alex

Top Pick: Faith #3 (Valiant) – I love this series. There’s a fun, infectious energy here that just grabs you and pulls you in for one fantastically uplifting ride. Plus, Faith heads to a comicon with Archer – and that’s going to be fantastic.

Action Comics #963 (DC Comics) – It’s a Superman comic, and the Man Of Steel has grown on me considerably since Rebirth. I’m looking forward to finding out who the depowered Clark Kent is, and how Metropolis reacts to a different Superman. Should be fun.

All-Star Batman #2 (DC Comics) – Scott Snyder is, at least for me, one of the best writers to take on the Dark Knight in some time. Any time I see his name attached to a bat-project I’ll be reading it.

Dark Souls: Legends Of The Flame #1 (Titan Comics) – I am a huge fan of the Dark Soulsworld and it’s incredibly deep lore (especially because it’s not spoon fed to you throughout the games), so getting a chance to explore that world’s stories through this two part story makes me a little excited.

Old Man Logan #11 (Marvel) – Old Man Logan is the tormented Wolverine that comic fans remember, without the near immortality his healing factor had become. It’s that vulnerability that makes the promised scrap between Logan and a whole whack of ninjas so enticing – Jeff Lemire hasn’t been shy about the old man having his hairy arse handed to to him, so there’s a legitimate chance that Logan will loose the fight this issue (well…maybe). Either way, it’s gonna be bloody.

 

Shay

Top Pick: Suicide Squad Most Wanted: Katana (DC Comics) – Katana was underused in the movie and she’s really an interesting character with a really dope backstory. So, here’s a chance to get to know almost everything you’ve ever wanted to know about Katana but, the movie refused to show.

Black Monday Murders #1 – 2nd Printing (Image Comics) This reprint is coming out the same day as Issue #2 which means you can play catch up and see what you missed before going in for round 2. There’s occultism, money cartels and,  evil magical banks that might be running things shadow government style. Who doesn’t like a good conspiracy theory?

Lady Killer 2 #2 (Dark Horse) – Hit squads, hitman mash-ups and lady hitwomen. Making murder for hire as normal as ordering a pizza or going grocery shopping.

Batgirl & The Birds of Prey #2 (DC Comics) – The “Who is Oracle” Story arc is almost over and you don’t want to miss a thing!

Throwaways #3 (Image) – I’ve got some high hopes for this issue of Throwaways. When I reviewed issue #2 last month I was like warm on it, mostly because I expected more. It looks like this issue is going to deliver and give a bit more the the story itself, the Abby & Dean and the plot is going to get thick and juicy enough to make it feel like you’re reading through split pea soup.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Detective Comics #940 (DC Comics) – Something major is happening… is this the end of Tim Drake!? DC has been tight lipped with this one, and teasing out something major will happen, so get this issue and the Teen Titans.

Doom Patrol #1 (DC’s Young Animal/DC Comics) – So much hype and I’m beyond intrigued to see what this new imprint within DC is like. I checked out the panel at San Diego Comic-Con and they sold me with what’s planned and the look of it all. The vibe I’m getting is superhero meets Vertigo, something I’m totally on board with.

Hadrian’s Wall #1 (Image Comics) – A murder mystery in space! I’ve read the first four issues of the series and it’s really good.

NVRLND #2 (451 Media Group) – A spin on the story of Peter Pan, but the comic takes place in modern LA and Peter’s the head of a rock band and Hook is a drug dealer. The two issues have been solid and well worth checking out if you want a more adult take on Pan.

Raina Telgemeier’s Ghosts (Graphix) – A family moves due to the illness of a daughter and wind up in an area with lots of ghosts. The concept sounds touching and fun, but really it’s Raina Telgemeier and this will be one of the top-selling comics and graphic novels of the year. Find out why Telgemeier’s graphic novels crush the competition and outsells the spandex crowd!
