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: X-O Manowar #7 (Valiant) – I’ve literally just finished reading this for Graphic Policy’s review, and I cannot wait to get my hands on the physical copy from my LCS. That art is stoningly good!
Faith And The Future Force #3 (Valiant) – Time travel, humour and stubborn determination. Can Faith and the Future Force save the timestream? I hope not, because I don’t want this series to end!
War Mother #2 (Valiant) – It’s a Valiant book. Of course I’m looking forward to it.
Top Pick: Secret Coders Vol. 4 Robots & Repeats (First Second) – Always fantastic, this graphic novel series entertains and educates in how to code. The first three volumes have explained things well and taught me a ton. Add in a cute story and fun art and you’ve got the perfect combination of education and entertainment.
The American Way: Those Above and Below #3 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – Don’t think politics and entertainment go together? Read this series. Entertaining and thought provoking each series explores race relations, politics, and more. Most importantly, it entertains with each issue.
First Strike #4 (IDW Publishing) – Did you ever take your G.I. Joe and Transformers and have them battle it out when you were a kid? This even, is that and then some.
Marvel Legacy #1 (Marvel) – Kicking off the next phase of Marvel comics. We’re all intrigued as to what it will all mean.
Southern Bastards #18 (Image Comics) – One of the, if not the, best comic series on the shelves today. It feels like a bit since the previous issue but the series is no less the emotional gut punch and no time has passed at all.
