Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

The Recount #4

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.

Future State: Gotham #1 (DC Comics) – We loved Future State, especially the Batman tie-ins. We return to that world with this series focused on Red Hood who has shunned his friends to go undercover to take down the Magistrate.

Heroes Reborn #2, Heroes Reborn: Hyperion and the Imperial Guard #1, Heroes Reborn: Peter Parker, the Amazing Shutterbug #1 (Marvel) – The debut issue was a bit mixed in quality but we’re intrigued to see where this story goes.

The Joker #3 (DC Comics) – This series has surprised us and surpassed our expectations. With its focus on Jim Gordon and his mission and failures, this is more like a detective story with its flawed main character than the typical Batman action-focused comic.

Magic #2 (BOOM! Studios) – The first issue did a solid job of capturing the Magic: The Gathering world. With a focus on an assassination attempt, the comic keeps things familiar as far as the story. It’s a solid combination and smart direction for the series.

Maniac of New York #4 (AfterShock) – This series has been great with a nice twist on the slasher genre.

The Princess Who Saved Herself (BOOM! Studios) – We backed this when it was a Kickstarter and loved it then. A great all-ages graphic novel about a Princess who rocks and the classical guitarist down the road she annoys.

Proctor Valley Road #3 (BOOM! Studios) – The series has been a solid horror adventure full of mystery and questions. Add in the details of the time period added and you have a great story.

Project Patron #2 (AfterShock) – A twist on the superhero genre, a team of individuals work together to keep up the illusion that the world’s greatest hero is still alive.

The Recount #4 (Scout Comics) – We’re in love with this series which sees an uprising against those that supported a corrupt President. The level of detail is amazing and each issue delivers shocks. We have no idea what’s next and where this is going.

Scout’s Honor #5 (AfterShock) – The series wraps up and we couldn’t guess how. This has been a fantastic mix of apocalyptic world and exploration of societal ill.

Silver Coin #2 (Image Comics) – Anthologies are getting popular again and this one features a new creator with each issue but they’re all tied together by a cursed coin. The first one was fantastic, like a horror Twilight Zone.

Stake #3 (Scout Comics) – The series has been a nice update to the classic vampire slayer concept. The art is top-notch delivering a cool style that blends in social media. The second issue expanded the world and concept and we want to see where it goes from there.

Time Before Time #1 (Image Comics) – To escape the future, people turn to a criminal organization that will smuggle them back in time. Such a great idea.

X-Corp #1 (Marvel) – Monet St. Croix and Warren Worthington head up the business ventures of Krakoa.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Proctor Valley Road #1

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: Urban Legends #1 (DC Comics) – An anthology featuring top talent taking on the world of Batman? Yeah, we’re in for this one.

Blade Runner Origins #1 (Titan Comics) – Discover the origin of the Blade Runners in this brand-new series!

Blue, Barry, & Pancakes (First Second) – A cute graphic novel geared towards young readers with lessons about friendship and listening.

Children of the Atom #1 (Marvel) – This series has been a long-time coming. The covers and art has hinted at a group that has a lot of inspiration from classic X-Men characters but what’s their deal? It’s not what we expected and a solid mystery.

Eternals #3 (Marvel) – The characters are coming to the big screen and this series is clearly an attempt to re-introduce them to the Marvel comic universe. So far, it’s been an interesting start though a little scattered in focus. The art has stood out as amazing though.

The Joker #1 (DC Comics) – We’ll admit, we were a bit skeptical about this one when announced but the first issue is a solid setup that has us excited for more.

Karmen #1 (Image Comics) – Guillem March’s series comes to Image as five single issues.

Maiden #1 (Heavy Metal) – A tale of revenge from Heavy Metal featuring Michelle Sears and Bart Sears!

Maniac of New York #2 (AfterShock) – The first issue knocked it out of the park. A film-like serial killer exists and terrorizes New York City. This is the story of the two cops looking to bring it down.

Mighty Morphin #5 (BOOM! Studios) – The origin of the new Green Ranger!

Minerva’s Map Key to a Perfect Apocalypse #1 (Lev Gleason – New Friday) – Don’t know much about this beyond the description. Minerva has been hired to locate two ancient, otherworldly items. Kind of has an Indiana Jones vibe about it.

Non-Stop Spider-Man #1 (Marvel) – A new Spider-Man comic? Sure, we’re interested in seeing what makes it different.

Nottingham #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – A new take on the classic story of Robin Hood. Read our review.

Proctor Valley Road #1 (BOOM! Studios) – During a “Spook Tour”, students goes missing and a rescue for them begins.

Scout’s Honor #3 (AfterShock) – The series so far has been an interesting spin on an apocalyptic world with some solid underlying themes. We want to see where it all goes.

Serial #2 (Abstract Studios) – Zoe is on the hunt for a serial killer hiding in plain sight in her community. The first issue threw out a lot of concepts, this second issue begins to bring them together.

Sh*tshow #2 (Scout Comics) – A big bad destroyed almost all of the world’s superheroes and now it’s back to snuff out the rest. Can those traumatized about the first battle stand against this world threat?

Space Bastards #3 (Humanoids) – The series is full of over-the-top violence and humor and each issue has left a smile on our face.

Specter Inspectors #2 (BOOM! Studios) – We expected the first issue to be a spoof of ghosthunting shows but the debut delivered something different and very entertaining.

Thor and Loki: Double Trouble #1 (Marvel) – Mariko Tamaki and Gurihiru are back together for another fun adventure!

Maniac of New York #1 Sells Out and Gets a Second Printing

AfterShock has announced the Maniac of New York #1 has sold out and will be getting a second issue. The final order cut-off is February 22 and goes on sale on March 17.

Four years ago, a masked slasher began stalking the streets of New York City.

Maniac Harry is inhuman, unkillable and unstoppable. Which is why the authorities’ solution has been to ignore him, and let New Yorkers adapt to a world where death can strike at any moment. When Maniac Harry starts killing his way through the subway system, trauma-haunted political aide Gina Greene and disgraced NYPD detective Zelda Pettibone become determined to go rogue and destroy him. But how can they fight a monster when they can’t fight City Hall?

Maniac of New York is written by Elliott Kalan with art and colors by Andrea Mutti, lettering by Taylor Esposito, and cover by Mutti.
