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.
Bequest #1 (AfterShock) – Magical items from the world of Tangea are being traded on the black Market in Chicago.
Black Knight: Curse of the Ebony Blade #1 (Marvel) – Black Knight is coming to the Marvel Cinematic Universe so we’re always interested in seeing how the comics reflect that.
Count (Humanoids) – A sci-fi take on the classic The Count of Monte Cristo.
Hero Hourly (21 Pulp) – Working as a superhero isn’t easy. The critically-acclaimed hit is collected! If you missed it, here’s your chance to catch up.
Muhammad Ali: Kinshasa 1974 (Titan Comics) – The graphic novel is a mix of fantastic art and photography. We have some glowing reviews here and here.
Orphan & the Five Beasts #1 (Dark Horse) – James Stokoe delivers a kung-fu epic featuring an adopted warrior having to kill their masters’ former disciples who are now corrupted.
Radiant Black #2 (Image Comics/Skybound) – The first issue showed off a lot of potential and was a fun read. We want to see where it all goes and this issue will be key to see how much longer we stick with the series.
Red Atlantis #5 (AfterShock) – We want to see where this action/political thriller goes. There’s so much to cover and so many different ways it can go.
Savage #2 (Valiant) – Savage has been captured. What’s the plan? The first volume of the series was great and the first issue caught us off-guard in a good way.
Science Comics: Digestive System (First Second) – These graphic novels have been educational and we want to learn about the digestive system!
Superman: Red & Blue #1 (DC Comics) – Publishers continue their “color” anthology kick, this time Superman is up! We always want to see what various creators do with the same character.
The Trials of Ultraman #1 (Marvel) – The first volume was solid. And we’re excited to see how this classic character evolves in the hands of Marvel.
Ultramega #1 (Image Comics/Skybound) – People are turning into kaiju and only three people with incredible powers can stop them! The final reckoning is coming but is this a way they can even win? Kaiju have been popular recently so we’re interested in seeing how this series differs from the pack.
