Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays 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 Wednesday.

Aquaman/Justice League: Drowned Earth #1 (DC Comics) – The mini-event crossover between Justice League and Aquaman has been fun in that disaster film sort of way and we’re excited to see how it wraps up because it feels like there’s a lot of ground to cover with just one issue.

Dead Man Logan #1 (Marvel) – Logan is dying… again. But, you know what? When the issue is this good we’re good with it. A solid start to this epic event.

Hellboy and the BPRD 1956 #1 (Dark Horse) – A new Hellboy adventure? Yeah, we’re in. Especially as we wait for the new film.

Heroes in Crisis #3 (DC Comics) – Who did it!? We want to know and this series has us sucked in to see how the mystery plays out.

Hex Wives #2 (Vertigo/DC Comics) – An exploration of the patriarchy with witches… yeah, we’re sold. The first issue was great, we’re expecting the same with the second.

Ironheart #1 (Marvel) – The first issue is a lot of fun as RiRi takes the spotlight and begins to stand out from under various shadows. A fantastic first issue that’s perfect for new readers and long time fans.

Marvel Action: Spider-Man #1 (IDW Publishing/Marvel) – Marvel goes all-ages through IDW?! Marvel has been farming out various aspects of their comics and the latest has us intrigued.

Monarchs #1 (Scout Comics) – Four young geniuses are tasked with discovering and instituting an ideal method of leadership to make a utopian society that the inhabitants wish to create. Um, sold.

Old Lady Harley #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue caught us off guard as to how much fun it was. So, we’re expecting more of that with the second.

Quincredible #1 (Lion Forge Comics) – Quinton, a high school sophomore, is looking to live his best life by moonlighting as a superhero. The catch? His power is invulnerability . . . and that’s the only power he has. Sounds interesting to us!

The Warning #1 (Image Comics) – An extraterrestrial threat emerges and must be stopped. We’re always game for good sci-fi action.

Lion Forge Moves the Catalyst Prime Titles to Their Roar Imprint

Just over a year since the Catalyst Prime Universe debuted to much acclaim throughout the landscape of pop culture, Lion Forge has announced they will move the existing title Superb, as well as the recently announced Quincredible, over to the company’s Roar imprint. Roar was launched along with another imprint, CubHouse, in 2016.

Superb was created by Lion Forge co-founders David Steward II and Carl Reed, and is produced in partnership with the National Down Syndrome Society in its portrayal of the character Jonah, a teenage boy with Down syndrome. The series has been a cornerstone title in comics’ most diverse and inclusive universe since 2017, and follows Jonah and his best friend Kayla, two teenagers coming to terms with their newfound superpowers. The series moves to Roar in its third volume next month, written by David F. Walker and featuring art from Alitha Martinez.

Quincredible, the newest series in the Catalyst Prime Universe, follows Quinton, your average high school sophomore, who also happens to be moonlighting as a superhero. While his fierce bravado may serve him, he’s still in dire need of the discipline to ensure he not only saves the day but minimizes the damage done in the process. Enter Maya, a member of her neighborhood watch, who takes him under her wing to give him a better understanding of the responsibilities of being a hero and what it means to save the day.

Quinton’s first real test comes when he faces off with Null, an embittered young man with a vendetta against Foresight Corp. and superheroes at large.

Quincredible features art by Selina Espiritu and Michelle Wong, and is set to debut under the Roar imprint later this year.

The Next Phase of Lion Forge’s Catalyst Prime

Just under a year since the Catalyst Prime Universe debuted to much acclaim throughout the landscape of pop culture, Lion Forge has unveiled the next phase in comics’ most inclusive and diverse group of heroes with the announcement of Quincredible, followed by upcoming creative changes across the line.

Lion Forge co-founders Carl Reed and David Steward II will serve as editorial directors for all current and future titles in the Catalyst Prime Universe.

Lion Forge announces the newest addition to the Catalyst Prime Universe in conjunction with this week’s Diamond Retailer Summit. Written by Mildred Louis, with art by Selina Espiritu and Michelle Wong, Quincredible is set to debut in August.

The series follows Quinton, your average high school sophomore, who also happens to be moonlighting as a superhero. While his fierce bravado may serve him, he’s still in dire need of the discipline to ensure he not only saves the day but minimizes the damage done in the process. Enter Maya, a member of her neighborhood watch, who takes him under her wing to give him a better understanding of the responsibilities of being a hero and what it means to save the day.

Quinton’s first real test comes when he faces off with Null, an embittered young man with a vendetta against Foresight Corp. and superheroes at large.

In addition to this brand-new title, Catalyst Prime will see creative changes as the line moves into its second year, with details to be rolled out for each title in the coming weeks.
