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 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.

Archie Meets Batman ’66 #2 (Archie Comics) – The two worlds collide in a fun adventure that really works in the first issue. We didn’t get a lot of Batman/Archie action but it looks like this issue will get us there.

Batman #53 (DC Comics) – This storyline has focused on Bruce Wayne on a jury to decide if Mr. Freeze is guilty after Batman pins him to a murder.

Crowded #1 (Image Comics) – In the future, it runs on an economy of job shares and apps and someone has targeted an individual who then hires the lowest-rated bodyguard to protect her.

Edge of Spider-Geddon #1 (Marvel) – Spider-Verse round 2 is what this sounds like as the multiverse’s Spider-people come together once again.

Extermination #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s big X event that has something to do with the original X-Men… we’re intrigued and hoping this is a return to the great events of the past.

Fence #9 (BOOM! Studios) – A comic about fencing!? Add in a little drama and this comic has quickly become one of our favorites. This is a great example of looking at what others are doing, in this case manga sports comics, and bringing it to Western audiences. Fantastic all around.

Hellicious #2 (Starburn Industries Press) – The first issue of this series was hillarious in a nice twisted way. Short take: little girl who’s a demon and likes to torture things. As we said, twisted.

Infinity Wars #2 (Marvel) – The lead up series left us wanting but the first issue of Marvel’s summer event really caught us off guard in a good way. We’re excited to see what happens next and honestly, we have no idea where this one is going.

Injustice vs. the Masters of the Universe #2 (DC Comics) – We expected a fun first issue but not one with so much depth and thought. Will the second issue be a repeat and continue to surprise? We’ll find out!

Pearl #1 (DC Comics/Jinxworld) – Brian Michael Bendis’ Jinxworld comics are now being published by DC and this new series he’s back with long time collaborator Michael Gaydos. We’re beyond excited.

Ruinworld #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue was adorable, fun, and funny, and we’re excited to read this second issue of this webcomic that has come to print!

Tongues #1 (Fantagraphics) – Anders Nilsen series taking place in the modern Middles East following the entwined stories of an imprisoned god, the eagle that is his jailor, an east African orphan on an errand of murder and a young American with a teddy bear on his back, lost in a trackless wilderness. Revenge, evolution, the fate of the world… and a talking chicken.

Terminator: Sector War #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – It’s been a while since we’ve had a new Terminator series and with a new film in production, we’re excited for what’s to come!
Undocumented (Abrams Comicarts) – The story of immigrant workers who come to the United States without papers. A timely graphic novel we’re excited to see humanize this reality.

Volition #1 (Aftershock Comics) – It’s the not too distant future where a race of robots has spawned but are second class citizens. They struggle for equal rights but a virus threatens all artifical life.

Review: Injustice vs. He-Man and the Masters of the Universe #1

DC Comics has been really doing a lot with their Masters of the Universe comics since the ongoing series ended some time ago. That mainly has been in the form of a series of mini-series and crossovers. DC has also been crossing over their characters with properties that have only crossed over in our childhood imagination. Two properties come together in Injustice vs. Masters of the Universe #1 and while I initially expected a cash-in, writer Tim Seeley delivers something so much more.

The issue kicks off with He-Man liberating his people from Faker who has taken control. But, do the people of Eternia prefer He-Man over Faker? There’s something very Trumpian about it all as the people of Eternia go all MEGA touting Faker’s good positive attributes and how he took on issues the people care about. While all of that could be a comic story arc by itself, it’s used as a way to contrast things that have happened in the world of Injustice where Superman has enslaved the world again and now has gone all pre-cog stopping crime before it has begun. But, Superman has a weakness and that’s magic. Hence, the need for the heroes of Injustice to seek out He-Man’s help.

The art by Freddie Williams II with color by Jeremy Colwell, and lettering by Wes Abbott looks great as expected. Williams is the go to artist for these crossover events for DC and his style adds to the fun nature of all of them. It’s distinct and it looks really good. Here, the two distinctive styles of heroes feels like they could be from the same multiverse.

The comic is surprisingly deep with an underlying focus on today’s socio-political state of things. That’s unexpected and really changed this from a fun crossover to something a lot more. I went from looking forward to this to really wanting to see what comes next.
