Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Shoplifters Will Be Liquidated #1

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.

Batman’s Grave #1 (DC Comics) – Warren Ellis takes on Batman with Bryan Hitch and Kevin Nowland on art.

Cobra Kai: The Karate Kid Saga Continues #1 (IDW Publishing) – The original Karate Kid is told from Johnny’s perspective. Sounds entertaining to us as we’re fans of the film series.

Dead Legends Premier Edition #1 (A Wave Blue World) – The publisher is putting out premier editions of their comics which then switch to digital releases or a trade after. We’re intrigued if this new release method works and if this first issue would get us interested in continuing with that sort of release.

Ginseng Roots #1 (Uncivilized Books) – Craig Thompson recounts his life of harvesting ginseng from ages 10 to 20.

Hellmouth #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Angel and Buffy crossover in an event that already is selling out!

Joker/Harley: Criminal Sanity #1 (DC Comics) – The latest DC Black Label comics is another Joker/Harley Quinn story and we’re intrigued how, and if, this one will be original to stand out.

RWBY #1 (DC Comics) – The popular anime gets a series from DC. How this will differ from the manga already released will be interesting.

Powers of X #6 (Marvel) – Jonathan Hickman’s new direction for the X-Universe wraps up.

Shoplifters Will Be Liquidated #1 (AfterShock) – The largest retailer in the world requires the best loss prevention staff and they defend things at any and all costs.

Smedley (Dead Reckoning) – The graphic novel is a solid introduction to the military hero and his rather interesting life of service and advocacy.

Spawn #301 (Image Comics) – The comic breaks a record for ongoing superhero series with this issue and that history-making fact is why it’s on our list.

Rooster Teeth has announced a RWBY YA series published by Scholastic. Featuring brand new RWBY content in the form of original novels, the first book in the series, After the Fall will be available in 2019. The series will be written by award-winning author E.C. Myers with consulting writing from RWBY head writers Kerry Shawcross and Miles Luna.

After Beacon Academy fell, Coco, Fox, Velvet, and Yatsuhashi made a vow: No one else is getting left behind. It’s been more than a year since Team CFVY saw their school destroyed by the Creatures of Grimm, their friends felled in battle or scattered across the world of Remnant. Since then, they’ve been settling into life at Shade Academy in Vacuo, fighting hard to finish their training so they can reunite with their friends and save their world.

When a distress message comes into Shade, asking for huntsmen and huntresses to defend refugees from a never-ending stream of Grimm, Team CFVY answers the call without hesitation. But in the heat of the desert, they’re forced to relive their former battles, both from the Fall of Beacon and from everything that came before.

RWBY is the first western-style anime to be distributed in Japan and is produced by Rooster Teeth in Austin, Texas.

With Beacon fallen and Mistral compromised, Remnant’s northernmost academy may now be the safest place in the world, but making it there will be more dangerous than anyone could have imagined.

In a world filled with horrific monsters bent on death and destruction, humanity’s hope lies with powerful Huntsmen and Huntresses. Ruby Rose, Weiss Schnee, Blake Belladonna, and Yang Xiao Long are four such Huntresses in training whose journeys will take them far past the grounds of their school, Beacon Academy. Though each may be powerful on their own, these four girls must overcome dark forces and work as a team if they truly hope to become the next generation of Remnant’s protectors.

RWBY is the first western-style anime to be distributed in Japan and is produced by Rooster Teeth in Austin, Texas. Stay tuned for more announcements about Volume 6.
