Taking risks to truly make a mark in the industry,  Mad Cave Studios marks these four books as different milestones. Battlecats by Mark London was the inaugural comic that was a medieval fantasy comic. Stargazer, the sci-fi adventure written by talent search winner, Anthony Cleveland, gained critical acclaim. Nottingham, also by two talent search winners David Hazan and Shane Connery Volk, was an unexpected and bonafide hit and continues to sell excellently deep into its run.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Solo Leveling Vol. 4

Wednesdays (and 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.

Archie Meets Riverdale (Archie Comics) – When Archie “meets” folks, it’s usually an entertaining read. So seeing how this one plays out should be real fun!

Avatar: Adapt or Die #1 (Dark Horse) – With a trailer for the sequel film dropping this week, the timing is damn near perfect for a new comic series. That solid release is worth a mention here alone.

Blood Syndicate: Season One #1 (DC Comics/Milestone) – The next wave of Milestone begins here as the classic series returns!

Bunny Mask: Hollow Inside #1 (AfterShock) – The first volume was great and the Free Comic Book Day issue solid. We’re pumped for this next volume and to find out more about this horror series.

Captain America: Symbol of Truth #1 (Marvel) – Sam Wilson is taking on the mantle of Captain America again in his own series. With two different Cap books coming out, it’ll be interesting to see how the two differ.

Eight Billion Genies #1 (Image Comics) – A new series from Charles Soule and Ryan Browne would be enough to get on this list. The concept of everyone on earth getting a genie and wish at the same moment is too interesting to not check out.

G.I. JOE: A Real American Hero – Saturday Morning Adventures #3 (IDW Publishing) – The series has nailed the tone and look of the classic animated series. Absolutely fantastic in every way.

Grim #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Jessica Harrow is dead. But her journey has only just begun! This is a hot comic having already sold out at the distributor and getting a second printing.

Hulk vs. Thor: Banner War Alpha #1 (Marvel) – Celebrating 60 years for both characters!

Nottingham #7 (Mad Cave Studios) – The series has been great as a whole and if caught the Free Comic Book Release, you know that’s the truth. The issue is solidly timed to build off the FCBD release which was one of the best this year.

Past the Lat Mountain #2 (CEX Publishing) – After a war, fantasy creatures were rounded up and put on a reservation. Some have escaped hoping to find freedom while the government wants to stop them.

Science Comics: Birds of Prey (First Second) – We’re big fans of this educational graphic novel series that’s also entertaining. Great for kids and adults.

Solo Leveling Vol. 4 (Yen Press) – The series is awesome taking place in a world where dungeon hunting is an actual job.

Transformers: Last Bot Standing #1 (IDW Publishing) – The war for Cybertron may be long over… but the war from Cybertron never ends. When the last star flickers, who will be the only Cybertronian left?
