Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

MIRAGE-SEC_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICWednesdays 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!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.


Top Pick: Rocketeer At War #1 (IDW Publishing) – I loved the Rocketeer movie, and I can’t wait to get my hands on this comic. It ticks three of my attention grabbing boxes: pulp style heroes, a mid  20th century setting, and the Rocketeer. Will it actually be any good? I’ll find out and let you know!

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #2 (DC Comics) – I still haven’t read the first issue, yet, but with all the great things I’ve heard about that, it’s easy to be excited for this issue. Just not the price tag.

Extraordinary X-Men #4 (Marvel) – One of the best X-Men comics I’ve read in years, and it’s drawn by Humberto Ramos, who I’m a huge fan of. This is a comic that can’t really go wrong for me on paper.



Top Pick: The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage: Second Lives #1 (Valiant) – The first volume of Doctor Mirage was fantastic and to get a second just makes me happy. The character is awesome and art fantastic. Basically, what I’d expect from a Valiant book.

Darth Vader #14 (Marvel) – The latest entry to Vader Down? Yes please! The storyline reminds us how much of a badass Vader truly is.

Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #1 (Marvel) – It’s an intriguing character to be getting her own series, but she has a higher profile thanks to Jessica Jones. I want to see where it goes.

The Paybacks #4 (Dark Horse) – One of the funniest, most entertaining superhero comics this year. Each issue has delivered pure entertainment.

Venus #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Mankind head to the stars due to the depletion of natural resources on Earth. China has claimed Mars which forces the U.S. to head to Venus where things don’t go well. Sounds awesome.



Angela Queen of Hel #3 (Marvel) – “To the soundtrack of a totally sick Nordic death metal solo, Angela and Sera embark on the conquest to crown Angela Queen of the Dead…and encounter some who they have sent to the afterlife themselves!” – nuff said.

Island #5 (Image Comics) – Brandon Grahams ambitious anthology magazine features “Stories of space cannibalism, future tech dependency and volcano gods along with articles and illustration in the monthly oversized comics magazine.” this month!

Kaptara TP Vol. 1 (Image Comics) – The first issue’s title was “Space: Why you gotta be like that?” Everyone talks about Chip Zdarsky’s work on Sex Criminals, Howard the Duck, Jughead, but this creator-owned series is where his humor and inventiveness really shines. He’s doing a modern, adult riff on He-Man with a gay Indian-American in the lead Keith “Prince of the Dancefloor”. Kagan Mcleod’s art makes riotous cartoons out of He-Man and 70s space and sword and sorcery art. I love it.

Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #1 (Marvel) – Hellcat? Hell yes! Writer Kate Leth is a fan-favorite bisexual feminist comics dynamo and she’s finally getting her first Marvel monthly title.  Patsy’s friends with all our favorite heroines; She-Hulk and now Jessica Jones (according to Netflix). This comic is positioned to be a hit.

Princeless Book 5 Make Yourself #0 (Action Lab Entertainment) – The all-ages series of girl knights, and scientists and pirates and rogues goes a little introspective in this story arc. It’s going to be great.



Top Pick: Bloodshot Reborn #9 (Valiant) – The current ‘Hunt’ arc comes to an end, so this will likely be an exciting new beginning for the main character.  Plus I am looking forward to Butch Guice’s alt cover.

The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage Second Lives #1 (Valiant) – Valiant attracts talent, and they lined up Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre. A lot of hype behind this one, so I’m going to check it out; and Valiant hasn’t disappointed me yet. Also, I’ve never read Meter’s Hopeless Savages, but I plan to pick up used copies of the graphic novels to see what I missed.

Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #2 (Marvel) – This one is just simple fun. They all don’t have to be dark and violent.

Pretty Deadly #7 (Image Comics) – One of these days DeConnick and Rios will explain this one.  All I know is that I walk away feeling enlightened after reading this fantastical blend of Western and Magical art.

Wild’s End: Enemy Within #4 (BOOM! Studios) – I’ve been enjoying this one as a sci-fi fan.  It’s Animal Farm meets War of the Worlds.
