Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #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. It’s the second week of new comics after the shutdown and that also means the return of Marvel!

Alienated #3 (BOOM! Studios) – The first two issues of this series has been amazing as three kids discover an alien and all the trouble the spins out from that.

Basquiat (Lawrence King Publishing) – Learn about this amazing artist. – Read our review.

Dead Day #1

Dead Day #1 (AfterShock) – The dead are able to come back for just one night. The idea of this “annual macabre holiday” is really interesting and unique and we want to see where this series goes.

Disaster, Inc. #1 (AfterShock) – A new series from writer Joe Harris and artist Sebastian Piriz takes us on a tour of some of the worst places on earth while digging up trouble. The concept of disaster tourism is a new one for comics and we’re excited to check this one out. – Check out our exclusive preview.

Fun Fun Fun World (Oni Press) – Creator Yehudi Mercado knocks it out of the park with his comics and we expect no less. The Devastorm 5 is an alien warship whose prime directive is to seek out planets to invade and conquer in tribute to the almighty Alien Queen. The only problem is that the crew of the Devastorm 5 is the worst in the fleet. It sounds like a really fun fun fun idea.

King of Nowhere #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Now an honorary citizen of Nowhere, Denis joins one of the locals on a doomed-to-fail money-making scheme at the outskirts of town, while John Doe’s mysterious killer continues to leave bodies in his wake… We’re excited to dive back into this intriguing series.

My Video Game Ate My Homework (DC Comics) – Part of DC’s line of graphic novels for young readers, this is also one of the few that are original properties. Every one of their “kids” graphic novels have been top notch so far and we’d expect nothing less of this one.

Rogue Planet #1 (Oni Press) – A new sci-fi series from writer Cullen Bunn and artist Andy MacDonald about a salvage vessel tracking a planet with no star system to call its own.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #1 (Marvel) – Doctor Aphra is the best addition to the Star Wars universe in quite a while. A mix of Indiana Jones and pure chaos we’re always excited for her adventures. – Read the review of this first issue.

Venom #25 (Marvel) – It’s the end of “Venom Island” but an over-sized issue has us expecting something big for this series which has become really tied into Marvel’s bigger picture.

Christopher Sebela and Ben Sears Take on the Afterlife in Dead Dudes

Oni Press has announced the upcoming original graphic novel Dead Dudes from Christopher Sebela and Ben Sears, featuring a trio of ghost hunters who piss off the wrong bunch of ghosts, coming September 2020. 

Riffing on the ever popular supernatural hunter tv shows, Dead Dudes follows Trev, Kent, and Brian — three guys who are allegedly friends, but are best known as the backbiting hosts of the popular ghost hunting show, Ghost Bros. With ratings falling and competition rising, they gamble it all on the Chernobyl of haunted locations: Edgeway Penitentiary, where the Ghost Bros find conclusive proof of the afterlife… After they die and come back as ghosts themselves, trapped there with the angry ghosts who killed them!

Now that they’re deceased, the Ghost Bros have to be the best dead dudes they can be, prove to the world that ghosts exist, and save the lives of their most hated rivals (Oh yeah—and to save the living from a ghostly armageddon. Or whatever). 

Featuring art, color, and lettering from the talents of Warren Wucinich and Ryan HillDead Dudes will be available online and in stores on September 16, 2020.

Extraction is based on the graphic novel Ciudad which is published by Oni Press and written by Ande Parks, Joe Russo, and Anthony Russo. It features art by Fernando León González and Eric Skillman.

Review: Lola: A Ghost Story

Lola: A Ghost Story

Lola: A Ghost Story gets a new edition from Oni Press. Written by J. Torres with art by Elbert Or this new edition celebrates 10 years of the acclaimed graphic novel. Lola: A Ghost Story explores family, grief and Filipino folklore in an all-new edition that includes a revised ending and updated illustrations.

We meet Jesse, a young boy who can see everything supernatural including ghosts. He and his family fly to the Philippines as his Lola (grandmother) has passed and the family is there for her funeral. As he gets reacquainted with his family there, he soon finds out his Lola had the same gift as him. The more time he spends there, the more supernatural creatures present themselves to him. It’s a secret he can’t keep from his family as his cousins start to notice his strange reactions to them. His family’s grieving also becomes overwhelming, as everyone is affected by the loss of his Lola. Each family deals with it in their own way.

Overall, a beautiful and affecting story that illuminates, scares and is full of emotion. The story by Torres is heartfelt, affected, and at times, funny. The art by Or is stunning. Altogether, a story that will make you miss the ones that left you and love the ones who are still here.
