Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Second Coming #5

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.

Conan 2099 #1, Punisher 2099 #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s return to 2099 has been interesting with a mixed bag of quality. One of these is better than the other but overall, it’s a fun return to 80 years in the future.

Criminal #10 (Image Comics) – One of the best comics on the shelf. If you like solid storytelling or crime stories, it’s a must get.

John Constantine Hellblazer #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Constantine is back in his own series and a bit tied back with the Sandman side of things. It’ll be interesting to see where this series goes.

Killadelphia #1 (Image Comics) – A new take on the vampire story. We really want to see what original ideas this brings to the classic genre.

Last Stop #1 (Scout Comics) – A terminal superhero must stop a threat before the disease gets to him.

Second Coming #5 (AHOY Comics) – God and Satan get coffee. The series delivers some solid commentary and humor.

Star Trek: Picard Countdown #1 (IDW Publishing) – Leading up to the show and we’re beyond excited.

Tales From the Dark Multiverse: Infinite Crisis #1 (DC Comics) – DC’s twists on classic stories have been a bit mixed, but we still look forward to seeing what each does with the source material.

Touching Evil #1 (Source Point Press) – An attorney is given the power to kill someone if they’re evil. But, what is evil?

Get Misplaced in November with Chris Callahan

Television designer and winner of the Aspen Comics Talent Hunt Chris Callahan has created a beautiful and spellbinding comic book debut about love, death, and the limitations of Paradise. After a fatal shipwreck, James finds himself dissatisfied with the tedious machinations of the afterlife. Even worse, his wife Anna is nowhere to be found. Will James leave eternal paradise to find her? The Misplaced follows James’ journey through the afterlife in search of his wife’s soul. Source Point Press will publish the first issue of Chris Callahan’s stunning, genre-defying four-part comic book mini-series on November 20th, 2019.

In The Misplaced, James discovers an even darker and more menacing secret that threatens not just their own souls but the very fabric of the universe. To create the comic, Callahan uses photo collage, digital painting, 3D models, and traditional painting. Twisted and haunting, Callahan’s comic book debut raises ethical and spiritual issues that will resonate with readers, while introducing a major new creative talent.

The Misplaced #1

Review: Dead End Kids #1

Dead End Kids #1

It’s 1999. Ben, Murphy, Tank, and Amanda are four screwed-up kids from broken homes… but they have had each other. When Ben is murdered, Murphy and his friends set out to find who killed him. They find themselves in the cross-hairs! Dead End Kids #1 is a debut that evokes the long string of coming-of-age tales that have come before. It does it with a whodunnit spin that leaves you guessing.

Written by Frank Gogol, the coming-of-age tale is a solid entry into the genre. It doesn’t bring together the misfits as it does the kids who all have trauma in their lives. Issues at home seem to drive their friendship and it brings you into the story.

It’s easy to relate to the kids. The comic deftly introduces each character and gives you an idea of what’s affecting them. Gogol intelligently uses a mix of dialogue, visuals, and body language to really suck you in. And then the murder and mystery hit. And, there’s more than enough left out there to make you wonder who really is the murderer… if anyone is.

Nenad Cviticanin‘s art is solid and there’s solid work in making everyone unique and there’s more than enough detail to add depth that the dialogue doesn’t. Small details like a beer can or clothing adds to the story and helps explain the world we’re drawn in to.

Dead End Kids #1 is a solid introduction into a genre and evokes films like IT or Stand By Me in the characters and tone of it all. A good debut that’ll have you really wondering who would murder a child and wanting to find out more and solve this mystery.

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

AfterShock Shock Vol. 2 (AfterShock) – The anthology comic has entries from RL Stine, Garth Ennis, Jim Starlin, Larry Stroman, Szymon Kudranski, Marguerite Bennett, Jill Thompson, and more… like a brand new Flaming Carrot stroy by Bob Burden!

Ascender #3 (Image Comics) – The series is a fantastic follow Up to Descender and instead of taking on technology, this one focuses on magic. It’s an interesting opposite side of the same coin.

Canto #1 (IDW Publishing) – There’s been a lot of hype around this six-issue miniseries. An enslaved people have had their hearts replaced with clocks and Canto must brave the world to get a girl back her heart.

The Goon #3 (Albatross Funnybooks) – The Goon is an amazing mix of humor, action, and horror, and its return has been fantastic. So much fun with every issue. It’s a horror-ish Popeye and a must for comic fans.

Marilyn Manor #1 (IDW Publishing/Black Crown) – The President’s daughter throws a rager at the White House in 1981… yeah, we’re in for this one.

Operation Overlord #1 (Rebellion/2000AD) – The graphic novel series is translated into English for the first time. It’s four tales set during the Normandy landing on D-Day. Sounds really interesting and really good timing for release.

Road of Bones #2 (IDW Publishing) – The first issue was amazing as prisoners attempt to escape a Russian gulag and the infusion of horror makes it something else.

Samurai Grandpa #1 (Source Point Press) – A retired samurai must wield his blade again to save his granddaughter. It just sounds fun and the cover looks fantastic.

Steel Cage #1 (AHOY Comics) – Three comic stories enter and one leaves! Fans can read this comic and then vote as to which story they want to become a series after!

Transformers/Ghostbusters #1 (IDW Publishing) – Both properties are celebrating 35 years this year and coming together for this miniseries. The concept sounds silly but we’re in to see where it goes.

Review: Achilles Inc. #3

Achilles Inc. #3 continues the under the radar series adding in a bit of an Oceans 11 vibe to its socio-political superhero series.
