Betty and Veronica wake up in a place that seems nice-but something isn’t quite right. Maybe it’s the super-villain costumes they’re wearing. Or maybe it’s the henchmen chasing them and shouting about motorcycles and plants! Meanwhile, Riverdale doesn’t know what to do with certain members of the cheerleading squad. Co-published with Archie Comics.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

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 are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

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


Top Pick: Batman/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II #1 (DC Comics/IDW Publishing) – I thoroughly enjoyed the first miniseries featuring these two properties, and while I half expect this to be nothing more than a shameless cash grab I’m oddly excited to see the Dark Knight cross paths with the Turtles again. I would say you don’t see that happen often, but that’s not necessarily the case anymore – and I’m quite happy about that.

Green Arrow #35 (DC Comics) – One of the sleeper hits for me is Green Arrows ongoing series. The art is whimsical and sweepingly beautiful, and the story about one man fighting a giant corporate conspiracy theory is far stronger than it seemed at first. Definitely one to keep on your radar.

Faith’s Winter Wonderland Special #1 (Valiant) – Marguerite Sauvage pulls double duty on this one, and I’m curious as to what she’ll offer – as long as it’s fun (and looks as awesome as she’s proven her self capable of drawing) then I’ll be happy.



Top Pick: Jupiter Jet #1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – The debut issue of this teenaged Robin Hood story with a science fiction twist grabbed my attention immediately. The art, vaguely reminiscent of Squirrel Girl (probably not a mistake), makes early promises of a book with lighthearted romps plastered from cover to cover.

Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica #3 (DC Comics/Archie Comics) –  I am going to be honest–I didn’t know this title was out already. Time to catch up. Girl power is promised in BUNDLES in a book featuring four iconic women from comics, and the mashup of Good vs. Bad (can we definitively call Harley/Ivy evil?) should be a great time.

Jem and the Holograms Dimensions #1 (IDW Publishing) – More girl power. Step one: put a cat on the cover. Step two, promise some light-hearted hijinx featuring girls from both sides of the tracks (I’m sensing a theme this week…). Step three: throw in a good old-fashioned game of Dungeons and Dragons. What could possibly go wrong?

I Hate Fairyland Deluxe HC Vol. 1 (Image Comics) – A 36 year old woman trapped in a 6 year old’s body isn’t even close to the most grotesque thing going on in Skottie Young’s modern masterpiece. Young’s delightfully vulgar sense of humor truly shines in his first Image title. The Deluxe collection promises plenty of extras which will likely ooze with….something nasty.

Archie #26 (Archie Comics) – What can I say, I’ve been a sucker for the redhead and his bumbling misadventures since I was a kid. Old habits, and all that. But the All-new Archie has taken us some places we’ve never been before, and I for one can’t wait to see where we go next.



Harley & Ivy Meet Betty & Veronica #3 (DC Comics) – Do I really need a reason? It’s like my childhood met my teen hood in a bar and I’m here for it. This might be one of the few times where crossing the streams is a good thing.

Throwaways #10 (Image Comics) – Dean and Abby are still trying to get to the bottom of the conspiracy theory that is their life while dealing with the latest hinderences , like being separated by guards, as the hunt for the truth. The series is hit or miss but, they seem to be getting their bearings so either way this will be interesting.

Hawkeye #13 (Marvel) – Clint and Kate in LA on a case. There will be humor, there will be blood, there will be awesome , in the start of what looks like a killer story arc.



Top Pick: A Small Revolution (Soaring Penguin Press) – A revolution in a small country seen through the yes of an innocent child. If there’s ever been a comic more geared towards me, I don’t know what it is. The concept sounds amazing and I can’t wait to read it.

Black Lightning: Cold Dead Hands #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue was a perfect balance of action, characterization, and social justice. Hope this issue continues that trend.

Captain America #696 (Marvel) – The first issue was good (not great) but Mark Waid and Chris Samnee seem to be exploring what it means to be Captain America. What they have to say should be interesting and both know the character well, so this should be an interesting read no matter what.

The Consultant #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – When superheroes screw up, this is the guy who cleans up the mess. I’ve read the first issue and while there’s some slight issues with characters standing out in design, the story is fantastic and exactly what I hoped for.

Winter War (Caliber Entertainment) – The story of the 100-day war of Finland versus the Soviet Union at the dawk of World War II. Sounds really interesting.

It’s her (father’s) party and she’ll cry if she wants to, because Veronica and Betty’s killer costume idea was stolen by two crashers from Gotham City! Of course, she can’t know that she’s facing off with the real Poison Ivy, or that Betty’s about to get bopped by Harley Quinn herself. Whoops!

Review: Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica #1

Free college tuition for Riverdale residents?! Hiram Lodge is up to his old antics, looking to build a university and strip mall over Sweetwater Swamp. However, a certain botany-loving super-villain is ready to take a stand against the entrepreneur to preserve the wetlands. Poison Ivy enlists best friend, Harley Quinn, on a trip to the one and only Riverdale where they will encounter another iconic duo—Betty and Veronica.

Being a die hard fan of both Harley and Ivy and Betty and Veronica as separate entities, I was naturally hesitant to the idea of them coming together for a crossover in Harley and Ivy Meet Betty and Veronica. I wasn’t quite sure how these two worlds could possibly work together with both of them being so different. Within mere pages, Paul Dini and Marc Andreyko put my concerns at ease, with a hilariously creative story that far surpassed my limited expectations.

Despite loving the creative storyline, I was slightly put off by the hypersexualization of the beloved high school teens of Riverdale. While some might not protest, it felt disturbing as a long time fan to go from classic wholesome kids to sex kittens with ample cleavage and unnecessary ass shots. I can understand a promiscuous Harley, as she is a notorious flirt, but to attach such a heavy male gaze for seemingly no reason for the Riverdale characters seemed a bit much.

Luckily the storyline is so fun, it’s enough to carry the overall series, and I will definitely be picking up next issue.
