Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

By the Horns

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.

Batman: Black & White #3 (DC Comics) – The series so far has been fantastic with a mix of creative voices and very different styles and takes on the classic character.

By the Horns #1 (Scout Comics) – Marisan Naso and Jason Muhr are back together for a new series about a woman on an act of murderous revenge against unicorns who trampled her husband.

Crossover #4 (Image Comics) – The series started off as “spot the comic reference” but it has shifted into an interesting story about xenophobia, immigration, and more.

Frank at Home on the Farm #2 (Scout Comics) – The first issue was full of mystery and we’re excited to see where this series goes because we’re honestly not sure!

Girl Haven (Oni Press) – Koretris is a haven for girls where no men or boys are allowed. When Ash, a boy, is sent there by a spell a whole bunch of questions are raised. Read our review.

I Breathed a Body #2 (AfterShock) – The first issue was an intriguing mix of horror and commentary about social media and we want to see what else it has to say.

Kaiju Score #4 (AfterShock) – This heist comic during a Kaiju attack has been fun so far but how else can things go wrong and what other double-crosses are left? We want to find out!

Marvel’s Voices: Legacy #1 (Marvel) – An impressive group of creators come together for this themed anthology. We’re always fans of seeing how different creators handle characters and checking out new voices.

Nailbiter Returns #10 (Image Comics) – The second volume of the horror series wraps up and it’s a bloody doozy.

Nuclear Family #1 (AfterShock) – Based on Philip K. Dick’s short story Breakfast at Twilight, the series is Cold War era science fiction that we’re excited to read.

Paranormal Hitmen #1 (Behemoth Comics) – Two hitmen are hired by a Government agency to hunt and kill ghosts but also need to deal with the mobsters after them.

Savage Circus #3 (Heavy Metal) – The issue begins the pivot from the first two issues of setup getting ready for the action to come. It’s so great and entertaining, read our review!

Stray Dogs #1 (Image Comics) – A suspense thriller starring dogs!? Yeah, we’re intrigued by this one.

Two Moons #1 (Image Comics) – A Pawnee man fighting for the Union during the Civil War discovers horrors worse than combat.

Warhammer 40,000: Marneus Calgar #5 (Marvel) – The miniseries wraps up as Calgar takes on the Chaos forces!

Review: I Breathed a Body #1

I Breathed a Body #1

With a bit of trypophobia, making it through I Breathed a Body #1 was a bit rough. The imagery kept me uneasy and a bit squeamish. But getting through that, I Breathed a Body #1 is an interesting story about the power of technology and social networking.

Written by Zac Thompson, I Breathed a Body #1 introduces us to a social network and its star. A punk of a kid whose pranks hurt individuals, the apologies are hollow, and whose views deliver a lot of revenue.

There’s really something interesting here as the discussion about the power of technology companies and their ability to manipulate individuals. There’s also really smart discussion of the spiraling of technology and the rewarding bad behavior. These are real-world issues discussed today, real issues being debated.

Thompson has laid the groundwork for a horror story with a much deeper meaning to it. It does what a lot of horror does, deliver an examination of something beyond scares.

And those scares and unease are delivered by Andy MacDonald. The art is fantastic and kept me off-centered the entire time. There’s something to it that delivers an experience that’s both clean and sterilized and at the same time with a slight Hellraiser vibe about it. With Triona Farrell‘s color and Hassan Otsmae-Elhaou‘s lettering, the visuals keep me off-centered and a little nauseous. It’s probably how I should really feel about social media and the power of tech companies honestly.

Despite my trypophobia, I Breathed a Body #1 is an intriguing start of a series. There’s a lot to chew on for a comic that clearly has something to say. Things will be interesting to see where they go from here and what exactly is on these creator’s minds.
