Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!
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 third week of new comics after the shutdown and that also means the return of Marvel!
A Man Among Ye #1 (Image Comics/Top Cow Productions) – A high seas adventure in the waning days of piracy when the best pirates were… women? A new comic series focused on these two very real individuals. We’re intrigued by the mix of entertainment and history.
Against Hope (Dark Horse Comics) – Victor Santos is a creator whose work we’re excited for. A tale of revenge where Nazis are the target and we’re here for their bloody demise.
Canopus #3 (Scout Comics) – Dave Chisholm’s sci-fi series will absolutely be making it on to numerous “best of” lists at the end of the year. Helen learns the truth behind the mission amping up her urgency to return home.
Dark Nights: Death Metal #1 (DC Comics) – The next chapter in DC’s meta-story where the Dark Multiverse has bled over and reality is twisted and heroes are desperate for survival.
Panorama (Dark Horse Comics) – Michel Fiffe’s Copra is fantastic and we want to see what he’d do with a body-horror romance.
Perramus: The City and Oblivion (Fantagraphics) – In English for the first time, Alberto Breccia’s graphic novel following a political dissident on the run. It was created during Argentina’s military dictatorship.
Tiananmen 1989 (IDW Publishing) – Follow the story of China’s infamous June Fourth Incident-otherwise known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre-from the first-hand account of a young sociology teacher who witnessed it all.
