Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Superman #1 cover

Wednesdays (and 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.

Banshees #1 (Scout Comics) – A college student discovers the truth about a serial killer that stalked her college campus for a decade.

Barbaric: Hell to Pay #2 (Vault Comics) – It’s a new group of screw up adventurers who are tring to break Owen out of hell. Off the rails fantasy adventuring!

Batman: One Bad Day – Clayface #1 (DC Comics) – Collin Kelly and Jackson Lanzing telling a Clayface story? Yes please!

Betsy Braddock: Captain Britain #1 (Marvel)We’ve already reviewed it and have high praise!

Blue Book #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – A nonfiction comic book experience depicting true stories of UFO abductions with an eye to capturing the strange essence of those encounters.

Bulls of Beacon Hill #2 (AfterShock) – Boston Surgeon Christopher Boldt is getting more famous by the day – but that’s the problem. Chris’ secret doesn’t just threaten himself, it threatens the person he’s ashamed to say he’s related to: his mobster father. Great first issue which mixed politics, family drama, and a good ole mobster story.

Darkwing Duck #2 (Dynamite Entertainment) – The first issue was fantastic and a return to the animated series we love. Beyond excited for more Darkwing Duck!

First Time for Everything (First Second) – A First Time for Everything is a feel-good coming-of-age memoir based on New York Times-bestselling author and Caldecott Medal winner Dan Santat’s awkward middle school years.

Gargoyles #3 (Dynamite Entertainment) – The second issue was a bit of a mess but we’re hoping the third issue is more like the first which was beyond fantastic.

GCPD: The Blue Wall #5 (DC Comics) – The last issue was a shocker and the series has taken a hell of a turn. We want to see where it goes.

Godfell #1 (Vault Comics) – One sunny day in the land of Kerethim, God falls dead from the sky. The impact sends out shockwaves that draw in royal families at war, shadowy creatures of the dark, and armies of the dispossessed, all coming to lay claim to parts of God’s body. That just sounds awesome!

Immoral X-Men #1 (Marvel) – A new “Sins of Sinister” tie-in series.

Irmina (SelfMadeHero) – Based on a true story, in the mid-1930s, Irmina, an ambitious young German, moves to London. At a cocktail party, she meets Howard Green, one of the first black students at Oxford, who, like Irmina, is working towards an independent existence. However, their relationship comes to an abrupt end when Irmina, constrained by the political situation in Hitler’s Germany, is forced to return home.

Lazarus Planet: Omega #1 (DC Comics) – The finale leads into “Dawn of DC” which has already kicked off so we’re more intrigued to see where this goes and how it wraps up mixed in with what we’ve already seen.

Local Man #1 (Image Comics) – Tim Seeley and Tony Fleecs alone has this sold for us. But the concept of a former superhero forced to return home to their parent’s basement sounds original and interesting.

Plush #4 (Image Comics) – Every issue has been jaw dropping funny and so over the top.

Rooster Fighter Vol. 3 (VIZ Media) – The concept of a wandering Rooster fighting kaiju might sound silly but it really works and is a hell of a lot of fun.

Savage Avengers #10 (Marvel) – The series has been a lot of fun as writer David Pepose shows off his talent for delivering a remix of sorts of what’s come before. Fans of Marvel 2099 will won’t want to miss the latest arc.

Superman #1 (DC Comics) – It’s “Dawn of DC” and Joshua Williamson writing and Jamal Campbell’s art has us wanting to check out this new Superman series.

Tower #1 (A Wave Blue World) – Real-life contestants battle it out in a video game-style competition to reach the top of the Tower! It’s a familiar plot but we want to see where this one might differ.
