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 are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

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

Javier

Darkseid Special #1 (DC Comics) – Given that we celebrate Jack Kirby’s centennial this week, this book is auto selected as my number 1 pick. Penned by Mark Evanier (Kirby’s biographer), and with Paul Levitz, it includes Granny Goodness, an OMAC short, and a classic Kirby Fourth World story.

Deadly Class #30 (Image Comics) – 1980s big hair and depression. Remender delivers.

Crosswind #3 (Image Comics) – Gail Simone and Cat Staggs breathe new life into the old body switcheroo story gimmick, with a murderous hitman twist.

Animosity #9 (Aftershock Comics) – Marguerite Bennett’s post-apocalyptic animal ruled world blends action and drama with Latorre’s spellbinding art.

Victor Lavalle’s Destroyer (BOOM! Studios) – There’s definitely some hubris in including the writer’s name in the comic book’s title, but this is the Victor Lavalle who wrote ‘Slapboxing with Jesus’ and ‘The Ballad of Black Tom’. His graphic update on Shelley’s Frankenstein is potentially the BOOM! sleeper hit of 2017.

 

Brett

All-Star Batman #13 (DC Comics) – All-Star Batman has been one the most consistently entertaining comics from DC and one of the best comics on the market. A character study in comics and a must read.

John Carpenter Tales of Science Fiction: Vault #2 (Storm King Comics) – Great science fiction horror action that ups the tense setting and story.

Return of the Dapper Men (Top Shelf/IDW Publishing) – The award winning graphic novel is reprinted with new material. If you missed it the first time, now is your chance to get it.

Star Wars #35/Star Wars: Jedi of the Republic – Mace Windu #1 (Marvel) – Some of the best comics Marvel has been producing has been their Star Wars comics and this week we get two releases that I’m sure are entertaining if the past releases are any indication. Add in a comic just focused on mace Windu and I’m totally in.

Transformers: Optimus Prime #10 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Transformers comics have been knocking it out of the park with political intrigue, action, lots of drama, and some of the best science fiction allegories being produced today. These comics feel like they have more in common with the original Star Trek than they do the 80s cartoon.

Black Hammer #12 (Dark Horse) – Jeff Lemire continues to impress with his take on deconstructing super heroes.

Detective Comics #963 (DC Comics) – Things are kicking up as the group now knows that Tim Drake is alive. But, before we get to that this issue focuses on Spoiler and Anarky.

Mother Panic #10 (DC Comics/Young Animal) – Batman without the restraint. Just brutal and awesome.

Nightwing: The New Order #1 (DC Comics) – Maybe not the best timing but we’re intrigued to see what this fascist Nightwing has in store for us.

First Strike #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue started off with a bang (literally) and we can’t wait to see what the second brings in this crossover of properties like G.I. Joe and Transformers.

Saucer State #3 (IDW Publishing) – Aliens. Conspiracies. Politics. The President of the United States. Yes please!

Hard Place #1 (Image Comics) – A former wheelman tries to go straight but is caught up in a robbery and is being chased by the cops and Russian mob. Sounds awesome!

Lazarus X Plus 66 #2 (Image Comics) – Some of the best world building in all of entertainment.

Shirtless Bear-Fighter #3 (Image Comics) – The concept is goofy but we’ve been having a blast with this series.

Generations: Unworthy Thor & Mighty Thor #1 (Marvel) – We’re not quite sure the big picture point of these one-shots, but we’re still holding out hope.

Secret Empire #9 (Marvel) – We’ve had mixed reactions here as to this event (generally negative) but with one more issue to go we want to see how it wraps up and if there’s any way to right this wrong.

X-Men: Gold #10 (Marvel) – The relaunched X line from Marvel has been a big improvement and this is easily its best series.

Bubblegun Vol. 2 #4 (Aspen) -A fun sci-fi series with eye catching visuals that feels like it should have a game to go along with it.

Catalyst Prime: Incidentals #1 (Lion Forge) – The company’s latest addition to its Catalyst Prime line of comics and the first group book. We’re intrigued to see where things go and how this stands out.

Clueless (BOOM! Studios) – As if!? The classic film gets a new graphic novel and we’re so ready to head back to the 90s.

Heathen #5 (Vault Comics) – The first four issues have been fantastic to read and look at in this new take with a vikings(ish) world.

Hi-Fi Fight Club #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Sounds like a riff on Empire Records. We’re sold on that alone.

Letter 44 #35 (Oni Press) – All the answers!!! ALL OF THEM!!! The series wraps up with this final issue.

Sisters of Sorrow #2 (BOOM! Studios) – A gritty series from the same person that did Sons of Anarchy. The first issue felt like a 70s exploitation/revenge film in a way and it’ll be interesting to see where the series goes from there.

War Mother #1 (Valiant) – This character has been touched upon a few times through various Valiant events, but she’s finally getting her own series and we can’t wait to see what’s done with the character. Valiant consistently knocks it out of the park and we’re expecting no less with this one.

Kurt Sutter’s “Sisters of Sorrow” Creative Team Revealed

BOOM! Studios has revealed the creative team for Sisters of Sorrow, the first original series created exclusively for comic books by Sons of Anarchy creator Kurt Sutter. Launching in July, Bram Stoker Award-nominated novelist Courtney Alameda and breakthrough artist Hyeonjin Kim join Sutter for a revenge story he describes as, “Nuns with guns.”

By day, Dominique, Misha, Sarah, and Greta run a nonprofit women’s shelter. At night, they each don a nun’s habit and move through Los Angeles hunting down violent abusers who have escaped justice. Their increasingly public vigilantism has earned them the nickname, “Sisters of Sorrow”—and has drawn the ire of L.A.’s notorious anti-crime task force.

In the announcement, Alameda said:

As a woman who’s experienced intimate partner abuse—and watched her friends deal with it as well—I can’t lie, Sisters of Sorrow is cathartic to write. And while I may personally identify with the issues that Dominique, Misha, Sarah, and Greta each face, I also believe the story of their crusade for justice will resonate broadly with readers, too. Who can say they haven’t secretly dreamt of meting out justice to their bullies or abusers? And as someone who grew up watching Westerns with her father, I love the way Sisters of Sorrow subverts the stereotypical vigilante tale and puts the power in the victims’ own hands. Dominique, Misha, Sarah, and Greta don’t need a man to save them—they can save their own damn selves.

Kim added:

The main focus of Sisters of Sorrow is that the female characters are antiheroes. Despite prior challenges in their life, they strive to overcome them. As an Asian woman, it means a lot for me to work on a project like this since it defies the racial and sexual standards and expectations of society. It is a project that introduces harmony amongst female characters of different races, while presenting them as strong, individual women who strive to solve social problems.

Sisters of Sorrow is the latest project Sutter has worked on with BOOM! Studios, having supervised original stories in the publisher’s hit Sons of Anarchy comic book series (including the current Sons of Anarchy Redwood Original title) and launching an original supernatural series, Lucas Stand.

Sisters of Sorrow #1 features covers by Jae Lee and Andre De Freitas.

Sons of Anarchy Creator Kurt Sutter Announces Sisters of Sorrow from BOOM! Studios

Kurt Sutter has announced the creation of a new series, Sisters of Sorrow, with comic book publisher BOOM! Studios. The prolific creator of television shows (Sons of Anarchy, The Bastard Executioner, upcoming Mayans MC) and feature films (Southpaw) is originating new content in the world of comic books first.

This new concept is the latest in a line of comic books and graphic novels from the top-rated Sutter at BOOM! Studios. Previously, Sutter supervised new, original stories in BOOM!’s hit Sons of Anarchy comic book series and launched an original miniseries, Lucas Stand, with the best-selling award-winning publisher.

Sisters of Sorrow is the story of four women, all victims of violent crimes, who unite to exact revenge on their perpetrators. By day, they are peaceful community activists in downtown LA. By night, they don bulletproof black leather under crisp white habits, strapped with state-of-the art weapons and the skills to use them.

Yep, nuns with guns, baby.

Sisters of Sorrow is set to debut in July 2017 at San Diego Comic-Con International.
