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.
It’s a short week of releases with the holiday and you can get every single issue for under $50! So, instead of picking which you should get, we’re doing something a little bit different with going over what they are and why you should check out each release!
Bone Parish #5 (BOOM! Studios) – A mix of horror and crime, there’s a drug on the street made up from corpses. The series has been excellent so far and if you missed out on the first four issues, there’s a comic shop exclusive trade out today as well.
Die! Die! Die! #6 (Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment) – Over the top ultra-violence in comic form. We haven’t seen this issue yet because (redacted).
Fantastic Four #5 (Marvel) – It’s a fantastic wedding! No seriously, the wedding actually happens! It’s an oversized issue but just nails the perfect FF vibe.
Go-Bots #2 (IDW Publishing) – Creator Tom Scioli rocks it in everything he does and he’s just bringing us back to our childhoods by taking on this “also ran” of transforming robot toys.
Hellboy and the BPRD 1956 #2 (Dark Horse) – There’s a movie out in 2019 and you might as well get into the Hellboy action now! These “year” series have been exploring the earlier adventuers of Hellboy and have been a lot of fun so far. There’s so little out this week, you should also grab the first issue too.
Man-Eaters #4 (Image Comics) – It’s standalone story that’s an entry point for those new to the series.
Mars Attacks #3 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Ack. Ack. Ack. Ack. Ack. Ack. Ack. Ack. Ack.
Marvel Action: Avengers #1 (IDW Publishing/Marvel) – IDW is taking on the classic Marvel poperty with this new series aimed at younger readers.
Superior Spider-Man #1 (Marvel) – Picking up from Spider-Geddon, Doc Ock is again the Superior Spider-Man, attitude and all.
Uncanny X-Men #7 (Marvel) – X-Men Disassembled has been a fun event so far with lots of call backs to classic X moments and a vibe that’s straight out of the 90s.
X-Force #1 (Marvel) – X-Force is back and they’re pissed. On the hunt for Kid Cable, Kid Cable has a mission of his own. Action. Humor. Violence. It’s all there as only X-Force can deliver.
