Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Banjax #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.

Achilles Inc. #3 (Source Point Press) – The concept of superheroes taking jobs from every day people is intriguing. The layered approach to it is what’s really impressive about this series. Enjoy it for what it is or dive deeper into the political/socio commentary, it’s enjoyable either way.

Banjax #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – A superhero has learned he’s dying and goes all out due to it. Yeah, we’re in.

Batman and the Outsiders #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue had some fantastic art and good team dynamic. We want to see where it all goes from there.

The Batman Who Laughs #6 (DC Comics) – We’ve gotten this far. We want to see how the team wraps this one up and brings it all together.

Event Leviathan #1 (DC Comics) – DC’s mini-event kicks off here and already is shaking up the DC Universe. We’re excited to see how this one goes and what it’ll lead to.

Five Years #2 (Abstract Studios) – Terry Moore brings so much of what he’s done together. This is one for the fans of his work and it’s absolutely worth it.

Grumble #7 (Albatross Funnybooks) – What comics should be, pure fun. Grab this entire series.

Jughead Time Police #1 (Archie Comics) – The concept sounds insane. Everything you need to know is in the title. We’re in.

The Ride: Burning Desire #1 (Image Comics) – The series just sounds like solid noir-ish entertainment with a former detective out of prison working as a bouncer with enemies looking to settle a score.

Spencer and Locke 2 #3

Silver Surfer: Black #1 (Marvel) – We’ve read it. It’s fantastic, especially for those who have been reading Donny Cates’ work. Tradd Moore’s art is fantastic too, especially with Dave Stewart’s colors.

Sonata #1 (Image Comics/Shadowline) – Two cultures clash on a planet they each believe is their Promised Land. Nope, no idea what this is alluding to.

Spencer and Locke 2 #3 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – Over the top noir/crime action that lampoons/loves the comics of our childhood.

Trust Fall #1 (AfterShock) – The series mixes superpowers and crime in what sounds like a really intriguing concept. There’s a hook here that’s really unique and stands out. We’re not spoiling it.

Voracious: Appetite for Destruction #2 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – One of the best kept secrets in comics. Start from the beginning (the first volume) or at least the first issue of this series to see what you’re missing. To tell you why would spoil the fun.

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

Ascender #2 (Image Comics) – Did you read the first issue? If you did, you know why this is on our list. The follow up to Descender does for magic and fantasy what that series did for sci-fi.

Batman: Last Knight on Earth #1 (DC Comics/DC Black Label) – Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo team again for Batman’s final story.

Doomsday Clock #10 (DC Comics) – We’ve already read the issue and this is what we’ve been waiting for. A ho-hum event finally gets good and there’s honestly some fantastic stuff explored here.

Heroes in Crisis #9 (DC Comics) – We’ve already read this one too and while it doesn’t quite stick the landing it is a decent ending to this rocky event.

Killer Groove #1

Killer Groove #1 (Aftershock) – It’s rock ‘n’ roll crime set in the 70s and the mix of music and crime alone has us excited to check this out.

Sham #1 (Source Point Press) – It’s public domain comics rewritten for our entertainment.

She Said Destroy #1 (Vault Comics) – Goddesses and their worshippers battle!

Spencer & Locke 2 #2 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – This series has been rocking it in its second volume which ups the action and has one hell of a villain.

Star Trek: Year Five #2 (IDW Publishing) – Are you a Star Trek fan? We are, and we’re finally getting our fifth year of the mission!!!

Stranger Things: Six #1 (Dark Horse) – The popular series comes to comics and we’re intrigued to see how comics expands the world and characters.

Superman: Leviathan Rising Special #1 (DC Comics) – This seems like it’s going to be a pretty big deal as far as a storyline.

This Was Our Pact (First Second) – Stand by Me meets My Neighbor Totoro in this astonishing, magical-realist adventure story for middle-grade readers. Yeah, we’re sold on that description.

Voracious: Appetite For Destruction #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – If you haven’t read the previous two volumes, you’re missing out. This series has some solid twists and turns about a chef whose secret incredients are dinosaurs. We’re not ruining it.

Wailing Blade #1 (Comixtribe) – We backed this series on Kickstarter as it reminded us a bit of Battlechasers in the exaggerated fantasy style. It’s some fun action in an oversized first issue.

X-Men: Grand Design – X-Tinction #1 (Marvel) – Ed Piskor continues his amazing take on the X-Men’s history.

The Wrong Earth

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 #1 (DC Comics) – The first two volumes that brough together Batman and the Turtles were tons of fun and we’re excited to see where this new volume goes and what new adventures they can come up with.

Copra Vol. 1/Copra Vol. 3/Copra Vol. 5 (Image Comics) Copra is now with Image Comics and with new printings, it’ll be easier than ever to get a copy to check out. The series is an indie take on superhero comics and so worth it.

DCeased #1 (DC Comics) – This sounds like DC’s version of Marvel’s popular zombie stories and we’re good with that.

DC’s Year of the Villain #1 (DC Comics) – This is going to be an important issue as it sounds like it’ll set up the next year of DC Comics.

Descendent #1 (AfterShock) – A new series that revolves around secret government conspiracies, ancient cults, government corruption and the kidnapped son of a Senator. We’re in.

Fallen World #1 (Valiant Entertainment) – A new trip to the future of the Valiant universe focusing on Rai and Bloodshot. Valiant always delivers and this is no exception.

Five Years #1 (Abstract Studios) – Weaving many of the strands of the “Terryverse” into one epic saga we’re there for any series by Terry Moore.

Hashtag Danger #1 (AHOY Comics) – A dysfunctional scientific team taking on lost civilizations and supernatural threats. Sound familiar? AHOY is an amazing publisher having fun with comic tropes and have delivered with every issue and series. Plus you get tons of extras!

Spencer and Locke 2 #1 (Action Lab: Danger Zone) – The second volume of the twisted take on Calvin and Hobbes set in Sin City expands the homage as they take on a familiar enemy who’s a bit like Beetle Baily.

Under the Moon: A Catwoman Tale (DC Comics/DC Ink) – We’re here to support this initiative of graphic novels aimed at younger readers! Check it out on Free Comic Book Day too!

War of the Realms #3 (Marvel) – Marvel’s event has been epic but uneven but we want to see what’s next in a pass the popcorn and turn off our brain sort of way.

The Wrong Earth Vol. 1 (AHOY Comics) – If you missed this series, you have no excuse now. It’s a spoof, homage, and love letter to superhero comics, especially Batman.

Suspended by Internal Affairs, Detective Locke grapples with the demons of his past alongside his trusty partner, his childhood imaginary panther Spencer.
