Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Rust Belt

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/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III #2 (DC Comics) – If you’ve seen our review of the first issue, you know why this is on the list. Just so much fun and out there ideas. Can’t wait to see where this goes.

Black Cat #1 (Marvel) – She’s had a lot on her plate in recent years taking a bigger role in Marvel’s criminal underground. We want to see what she does in a solo series and where they take her character now.

Criminal #5 (Image Comics) – One, if not the, best comic out there right now. This is a perfect hopping on point so take advantage and find out why we praise it so much. A must for fans of crime/noir comics.

DCeased #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue had a nice zombie/horror vibe to it, though we’ve seen a lot of what was inside before. But, it hit the right beats and we want to see how it differentiates itself.

Ignited #1 (Humanoids/H1 Comics) – A whole new comic universe from a hell of a list of creators. Can’t wait to dive in and see what they’ve put together.

Lady Mechanika: Sangre #1

Lady Mechanika: Sangre #1 (Benitez Productions) – We’re fans of this steampunk-ish series. This new volume has her heading to the Spanish countryside to hunt a demonic creature.

Rust Belt (Secret Acres) – A look at the underemployed, the working poor, the dreamers of America’s post-industrial cities.

Thumbs #1 (Image Comics) – Tech-obsessed teens are directed to take on the government from the creative team of The Few. Yeah, we’re in.

The Walking Dead #192 (Image Comics/Skybound) – Did you read the last issue? You know why we want to read this one. We’re not spoiling it.

War of the Realms #5 (Marvel) – The event is up and down but we’ve come this far.

But in this fight for a better future, who will stand beside him?
