Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Amazing Fantasy #1

Wednesdays (and now 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.

Amazing Fantasy #1 (Marvel) – There’s some cachet when it comes to the title of this series so we want to see what Marvel brings to the table with this series which brings together classic versions of popular characters.

Barbaric #2 (Vault Comics) – The first issue caught us off guard. It took the classic barbarian type story and delivered a nice twist to it. Add in great art and this is a series we’re excited to read more of.

Black Beacon #1 (Heavy Metal) – An intergalactic space station sounds great to go to, it sounds like utopia. But, when Niko gets there she finds it’s anything but.

Black Widow #9 (Marvel) – The series has been a blast with every issue mixing humor and action. One of the consistently fun Marvel comics on the shelf right now.

BRZRKR #4 (BOOM! Studios) – The series has been surprisingly good so far. While it delivers bloody action, it also is a fascinating exploration of its character B and the destruction he’s delivered through his lifetimes.

Groo Meets Tarzan #1 (Dark Horse) – Groo is always entertaining and this crossover has so much potential. We’re excited to see what these two properties together are like.

I Am Not Starfire (DC Comics) – The highly anticipated graphic novel about Mandy, the superhero Starfire’s daughter.

Icon & Rocket: Season One #1 (DC Comics/Milestone) – Milestone launched with a fantastic debut and we’re excited to see more and this new take on this iconic duo.

The Last Book You’ll Ever Read #1 (Vault Comics) – Cullen Bunn’s writing so we’re interested in checking it out just for that. A hit book is being blamed for violence and bloodshed around the world and the writer is determined to conduct a book tour.

Lucy in the Sky (First Second) – Lucy discovers her father’s collection of Beatles records and is inspired to form an all-girl rock band.

Mirka Andolfo’s Sweet Paprika #1 (Image Comics) – Mirka Andolfo is one of the hot creators out there right now so any debut gets a look from us.

The Other History of the DC Universe #5 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – The series started with Jefferson Pierce so it’s fitting that it ends with a focus on his daughter Anissa Pierce.

Runes #1 (Source Point Press) – A prisoner escapes after a shipwreck and must fight for his life in hopes of revenge.

Shadow Doctor #5 (AfterShock) – The series has been amazing with every issue. It’s the true story of a Black doctor in the 1930s who has to turn to Al Capone to get his medical practice up and running.

Skybound X #4 (Image Comics/Skybound) – Each issue has been a fantastic highlight of what Skybound has to offer including debuts that are sure to make the issues sought after.

Static: Season One #2 (DC Comics/Milestone) – The first issue was fantastic and was a hell of a debut for Milestone. We loved the first issue which had a fresh youthful feel about it and we’re fascinated to see where it goes after the previous issue’s ending.

Swamp God #1 (Heavy Metal) – At the end of the Civil War, Confederate soldiers call upon ultimate evil to save the South but then must team with Union soldiers to survive the horror they’ve unleashed.

United States of Captain America #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was a bit mixed in quality but at its core is a very interesting exploration of Captain America and what the character stands for and symbolizes.

Source Point Press Goes Behind the Veil at Comic-Con@Home

Source Point Press is bringing the mystery to you in the Comic-Con@Home PanelBehind the Veil: The Winchester Mystery House Comic Book Series.” Writer Joshua Werner (Rampant, co-founder of Source Point Press) and artist Dustin Irvin (The Seance Room) discuss the behind-the-scenes creation of the upcoming Source Point Press comic book series, “The Winchester Mystery House” on Saturday, Jul. 24 at 10 a.m.

Introduced by Walter Magnuson, general manager of the Winchester Mystery House, this panel explores the thrills and struggles behind crafting a horror story based on one of the most haunted houses in the world and the incredible life of its mysterious owner.

The Winchester Mystery House is a landmark mansion in San Jose, CA which was once the personal residence of Sarah Lockwood Pardee Winchester, the widow of William Wirt Winchester and heiress to a large portion of the Winchester Repeating Arms fortune. After losing her husband and child, Sarah left their home in New Haven, CT and moved out west to San Jose, where she bought an eight-room farmhouse and began what could only be described as the world’s longest home renovation. From 1886 to 1922 construction seemingly never ceased as the original eight-room farmhouse grew into the world’s most unusual and sprawling mansion.

In the upcoming comic series from Source Point Press, the Winchester Mystery House is much more than an architectural wonder. Readers are invited to step inside and hear the house’s whispers. Inspired by true events, this masterfully crafted horror tale written by Joshua Werner and beautifully illustrated by Dustin Irvin takes you into the non-stop construction of “The house that spirits built” and its brilliant and mysterious owner, Sarah Winchester.

The Winchester Mystery House will be available in comic shops and online at sourcepointpress.com on Wednesday, Oct. 27 2021.

United States of Captain America #1

Wednesdays (and now 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.

Barbaric #1 (Vault Comics) – Owen the Barbarian has been cursed to do good with what remains of his life. His bloodthirsty weapon, Axe, has become his moral compass with a drinking problem. We’re sold!

By the Horns #3 (Scout Comics) – A fantastic fantasy series about a woman bent on revenge against the unicorns who killed her beloved.

Darling #1 (Source Point Press) – New York City is caught up in a missing 8-year old girl but Francis Darling accidentally stumbles onto the machinations behind her kidnapping and the drug war that ensues. But has he really?

Factory Summers (Drawn & Quarterly) – Guy Delisle recounts his summers working in a paper mill.

Made in Korea #2 (Image Comics) – The first issue was fantastic and we’re expecting this one to be just as good. We felt something was lurking under the pages in the first issue and we want to see what, if anything, that is.

Mighty Crusaders: The Shield (Archie Comics) – The comic has been full of drama but we want to see this Rob Liefeld driven update on the classic Archie characters.

Parasomnia #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Cullen Bunn and Andrea Mutti, we’re in just for that. The story is about two worlds split between dreams and reality.

Power Rangers Unlimited: Edge of Darkness #1 (BOOM! Studios) – There’s a lot of buzz about this debut which features the Phantom Ranger. Expect sell-outs and new printings.

United States of Captain America #1 (Marvel) – Marvel is going to explore the legacy of Captain America and introduce a bunch of new characters inspired by the icon. We want to see what the series has to say about the character and what he represents.

White #1 (Black Mask Studios) – Black looked at a world where only Black individuals have superpowers. White focuses on the reaction to that and the individuals attempting to stop them.

Preview: Darling #1

Darling #1

(W) Michael Fleizach, Todd Hunt (A/CA) Dave Mims
In Shops: Jun 30, 2021
SRP: $3.99

With all of New York City enveloped in the zeitgeist of a missing 8-year old girl, loveable anti-hero Francis Darling accidentally stumbles onto the machinations behind her kidnapping and the drug war that ensues. But has he really? A bit like chasing the Mad Hatter through a toxic chemical cloud, Francis’ strange and inconceivable journey brings us uncomfortably close to NYC’s most crooked… most deviant… most irredeemable characters; the kind that can only be extricated from the drug-addled guilty conscience of a failing brain.

Darling #1

Holliston Goes to Hell in a New Comic Adaption

Your favorite characters from the TV series Holliston are back, and this time they’re going straight to hell in “Holliston Goes to Hell,” the third book in the graphic novel series based on the fan-favorite horror sit-com. When “Adam,” “Joe,” “Laura,” and “Corri” attend their High School Reunion an ancient colonial curse creates a gigantic sinkhole that swallows the entire town of Holliston, MA down to Hell! Now the gang must each face off with their darkest personal fear if they’re to save their souls from the clutches of the Devil himself!

Created by filmmaker Adam Green (the Hatchet franchise, Frozen), Holliston originally ran for two seasons in 2012/2013 on the FEARnet cable television network. In 2014 as the show was gearing up to start on a third season, Holliston suffered the tragic loss of cast member Dave Brockie (GWAR) and the FEARnet network was dissolved in a merger between Comcast and Time Warner. The graphic novel series from Source Point Press has kept Holliston alive for fans by delivering new stories while they continue to hope for news of a new season.

Holliston Goes to Hell is the third Holliston graphic novel from Source Point Press and ArieScope Pictures, written by Greg Wright and illustrated by Stephen Sharar. The previous books in the series, Holliston: Friendship is Tragic and Holliston: Carnival of Carnage, are available in stores and online from both ArieScope Pictures and Source Point Press, as well as digital sites such as Comixology and DriveThru Comics. Seasons 1 and 2 of Holliston are currently streaming on Shudder in North America. Both seasons are also available digitally and on DVD/Blu-ray.

Holliston Goes to Hell will be available in comic shops and online at sourcepointpress.com on Wednesday, Oct. 27, 2021.
