Despite the strongest objections from every possible authority-including district attorney Harvey Dent-Dr. Harleen Quinzel’s found herself with free access to every inmate in Arkham Asylum, where she desperately pursues a revolutionary and highly controversial cure to the insanity of Gotham. But her work with the city’s super-criminals quickly muddies the waters of good and evil, and in the deepest, darkest padded rooms of Arkham, even the words of a mad clown start making sense!

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #99

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.

Chrononauts: Futureshock #1, Chrononauts: Futureshock #2, Chrononauts: Futureshock #3, Chrononauts: Futureshock #4 (Image Comics) – The latest from Millarworld is a new volume of Chrononauts, his time travel series. All issues are being released the same day which is interesting as far distribution and we’re intrigued to see how the series holds up this way…. and sales down the road.

Basketful of Heads #1 (DC Comics/Hill House Comics) – The comic line by writer Joe Hill kicks off! The horror focused line (and this series) seems like a perfect match for the Halloween season and we’re always excited for more comics by Joe Hill.

Bloodshot (2019) #2 (Valiant) – The trailer for next year’s film is out and if you want to hop on the bandwagon, this is a good series to start with.

Excalibur #1 (Marvel) – The X-Men dip into the fantasy genre.

Fantastic Four: Grand Design #1 (Marvel) – The X-Men version of this was a lot of fun and compacted their history in some easily digestible comics. This is more of the same focused on Marvel’s First Family!

Giant Days: As Time Goes By #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Wrapping up the beloved series!

Harleen #2 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – The first issue of the series was interesting in that it cast Harleen Quinn as a profiler in more of a police procedural. It’s a different take and we’re interested in seeing more but still a bit skeptical.

Joker: Killer Smile #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino… yes please!

Last God #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – A new fantasy original series from…. DC!? Yeah, we’re intrigued by this due to the creative team and the publisher.

Marvel Zombies: Resurrection #1 (Marvel) – We’re in the Halloween mood and zombies will help with that. We’re hoping for a new spin on this Marvel favorite property.

Red Goblin: Red Death #1 (Marvel) – It’s a comic we didn’t know we needed and we’re still not sure we do but we’re intrigued. The series is focused on Norman’s time as the Red Goblin that we haven’t seen.

Red Winter #4 (Scout Comics) – We love noir/crime comics and this one has stood out with twists and turns involving the Russian mob… in Russia. An intriguing premise and unique setting has us excited for each issue.

Roku #1 (Valiant) – The villain gets her own series with some “John Wick” style action!

Snow White Zombie Apocalypse (Scout Comics) – It’s Snow White with a zombie apocalypse twist!

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Death of Superman #1 (DC Comics) – The first “Tales From” knocked it out of the park and seems to be important for the meta story going on at DC. We’re hoping for more of the same with this issue.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #99 (IDW Publishing) – We’re one issue away from the big issue #100! “City at War” rages on.

Vampire State Building #2 (Ablaze) – The first issue was fantastic with a solid vampire premise as they descend upon the Empire State Building where evil has been buried.

Wolvenheart #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – The series sounds like Doctor Who meets Castelvania and that sounds awesome.

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.
