Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

X-Men #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.

Absolute Carnage #4 (Marvel) – The event has been going strong and we really want to see where it all goes as it gets bigger and bigger as far as characters involved.

Crazy #1 (Marvel) – Celebrating 80 years of Marvel with this bit of a throwback comic.

Killswitch #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The concept kind of sounds like Minority Report but the idea of clairvoyants looking to escape captivity still sounds interesting enough to check out.

Marked #1 (Image Comics) – A double-sized premiere about a secret order that protects the world by using their tattooed powers.

The Mask: I Pledge Allegiance to the Mask #1 (Dark Horse) – The Mask is back with what sounds like a timely political spin to it.

Metal Men #1 (DC Comics) – The classic characters get a twelve issue miniseries and picks up on Nth Metal and the Dark Multiverse. We’re intrigued.

Once & Future #3 (BOOM! Studios) – Kieron Gillen and Dan Mora have been killing it with this modern fantasy series. Great action and great characters with an interesting twist.

Robotech Remix #1 (Titan Comics) – The next step in the Robotech franchise. We’re excited to see what Brenden Fletcher does with it!

Something is Killing the Children #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Children dying in towns seems to be a big “genre” now but this series stands out with it’s delivery on the topic. Just a solid mix of mystery and horror.

Superman Smashes the Klan #1 (DC Comics) – We’ve wanted to read this since it was announced. The series is inspired by the famous 1940s radio serial.

Superman: Year One #3 (DC Comics) – Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s take on Superman wraps up and after a gonzo and cringey second issue…

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Batman Knightfall #1 (DC Comics) – DC launches a new line of comics that takes major DC events and shows us the Dark Multiverse take on them. We’re excited for all of this.

Trees: Three Fates #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue returned us to the world of “Trees” but that aspect seems to not matter as much. Three Fates is more murder mystery than sci-fi weirdness but with a unique setting and solid pacing, it’s a must for those that enjoy that type of story.

X-Men #1 (Marvel) – Dawn of X launches!
