Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Gunslinger #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.

Ant #1 (Image Comics) – A new ongoing from Erik Larsen? We’re definitely intrigued to see where he takes this classic character.

Batman #115 (DC Comics) – “Fear State” has been a solid event so far and this issue gives us a better idea of Scarecrow’s plan.

Batman Secret Files: Peacekeeper #1 (DC Comics) – Want to learn more about Peacekeeper-01? This is the issue to do so.

Catwoman: Lonely City #1 (DC Comics) – It’s been ten years since Batman and his allies died and Catwoman is just getting out of jail for the crime. It’s a very different Gotham than what she remembers.

Critical Role: Tales of Exandria #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – The popular roleplaying game group gets an all-new comic series diving deeper into the world they’ve created!

Death of Doctor Strange #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was interesting and a lot of setup for what’s to come. Here’s hoping it begins to pay off in the concept.

Destroy All Monsters: A Reckless Book (Image Comics) – This series of graphic novels have been fantastic so far and we’re excited to see the next chapter. If you’re a fan of crime/noir, check this out.

Dungeons & Dragons: Mindbreaker #1 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s D&D comics are always entertaining for fans of the game and fantasy.

Eat the Rich #3 (BOOM! Studios) – A solid horror series taking on the wealthy.

The Essential Guide to Comic Book Lettering (Image Comics) – We’ll admit we could use a good dive into learning about comic book lettering and this seems like the perfect way to do that!

EXO: Legend of Wale Williams Vol. 1 (Dark Horse Comics) – If you’ve never gotten a chance to check out this indie comic series, now’s your chance. This is also a chance to check out the amazing African comic world, YouNeek YouNiverse!

Gunslinger Spawn #1 (Image Comics) – Todd McFarlane continues to expand his Spawn universe with this brand new series. What’s been released has been interesting so far and we want to see how each of these series are unique and also tie together for a shared world.

Hellcop #1 (Image Comics) – The Pan-Dimensional Security Cops, aka Hellcops, must deal with Known Reality Plane 1301-A, a literal hell.

Maw #2 (BOOM! Studios) – A solid horror series for the spooky season.

Nita Hawes’ Nightmare Blog #1 (Image Comics) – A new tie-in series to the praised series Killadelphia. Untold evil lurks the streets of Baltimore.

Not All Robots #3 (AWA Studios) – Robots have replaced humans in the workforce. A human family’s robot spends its time in the garage working on machines the family is pretty sure is designed to kill them. Great satire from Mark Russell and Mike Deodato Jr.

Nubia & The Amazons #1 (DC Comics) – There’s new leadership for the Amazons! Check out the new status-quo that has Nubia in charge!

Phoenix Song: Echo #1 (Marvel) – At the end of the latest Avengers storyline featuring the Phoenix, the cosmic force chose Echo as a new host. What’s next? We’ll find out starting here!

Refrigerator Full of Heads #1 (DC Comics/Hill House Comics) – Hill House Comics are back with this sequel to Basketful of Heads.

X-Men: Trial of Magneto #3 (Marvel) – The series has been an interesting one full of emotion and some solid action moments. There’s obviously a lot going on with someone pulling the strings and we want to see how this all wraps up.

I’m joined by award-winning journalist, opinion writer, comics fan–now horror comic author Jude Ellison S. Doyle to talk about his new series Maw.

A provocative five-issue horror series by Doyle (Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers: Monstrosity, Patriarchy, and the Fear of Female Power) and artist A.L. Kaplan (Full Spectrum Therapy) that explores the anger of women trapped by society’s expectations and the reclamation of power through collective rage. Published by BOOM! Comics.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Primordial #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 ’89 #2 (DC Comics) – It’s been fun going back to the “film universe” of Batman and we want to see where it goes, especially with what has been hinted at.

Batman: The World (DC Comics) – Batman stories from creative teams from around the world in a new anthology.

Black Widow #11 (Marvel) – This series has delivered with every issue. It mixes great action, with real emotion, and the sexiness this sort of “spy” story can deliver. It’s just perfect entertainment.

Campisi #2 (AfterShock) – The mob vs. dragon. That’s all you really need to know about this one.

Eternals: Thanos Rises #1 (Marvel) – The Eternals have been shaken up in their own series delivering a story that makes them “A” level in the Marvel Universe. What this spin-off brings to the table has us intrigued.

Hellboy & the BPRD 1957 Family Ties (Dark Horse) – Hellboy is always fun. This one-shot focuses on an unwanted house guest that Hellboy and BPRD agent Susan Xiang need to take care of.

I Am Batman #1 (DC Comics) – John Ridley has been delivering an interesting take on the next Batman with a story that features a lot of emotion and depth.

Kang the Conqueror #2 (Marvel) – The first issue did a solid job of streamlining the character’s convoluted history. We’re excited to see where this second issue goes as a young Kang begins to confront his different versions in a twisted version of “this is your life”.

MAW #1 (BOOM! Studios) – What happens when one woman becomes the real monster society has always made her out to be? That alone has us intrigued to read this one.

Nobody’s Child #1 (Behemoth Comics) – Albino rhinos have a genetic code that holds the properties to regenerate man. This leads to their near extinction. This is the story of a boy who decides to dedicate his life to protecting this rhino.

Primordial #1 (Image Comics) – Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino launch this new series about some of the animal test subjects during the early years of the space program. The animals never came back… they were taken and all of these years later, they’re coming home.

Stray Dogs (Image Comics) – If you missed this series as individual issues, you need to get the trade. It’s a murder mystery from the perspective of the dogs that might have witnessed it. Amazing art and full of tension.

Unearthed: A Jessica Cruz Story (DC Comics) – A new take on Jessica Cruz’s origin story. We’re fans of the character and interested in seeing what new ideas can be done with her.

Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a good introduction to this faction and the world delivering solid art and action. Individuals who enjoy a straightforward “space marine kills alien” type story should check this out.

X-Men: Trial of Magneto #2 (Marvel) – The debut was full of emotion as the attempt to figure out who killed the Scarlet Witch began. But, we’re expecting a lot of twists and turns before this one is over.
