Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!


Wednesdays (and 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.

Action Comics #1052 (DC Comics) – Superman is back and brought his entire family. The previous issue was a lot of fun and left us with a lot of questions. Add in some awesome art, good backup stories and the Man of Steel and friends are flying high!

The Beginning After the End Vol. 2 (Yen Press) – The first volume was fantastic and left Art and his parents under attack and about to fight! Big reveals are promised in this one!

Cosmic Ghost Rider #1 (Marvel) – The character took a break and is back in a new series that has someone killing in his name. We’re intrigued by it all.

Do a Powerbomb (Image Comics) – Collecting the amazing wrestling series. This is one to check out if you’re a fan of the sport, family drama, fantastic action, or amazing art.

Hallows’ Eve #1 (Marvel) – The character was one of the more interesting things to come out of “Dark Web”. A series dedicated to her? We’re willing to give it a shot.

Hunt. Kill. Repeat. #1 (Mad Cave Studios) – Artemis is on a quest for revenge to confront her father, Zeus, for taking away everything she ever loved.

Karate Survivor in Another World Vol. 4 (Seven Seas Entertainment) – It feels like quite a while since we got the third volume, but the series has taken an interesting spin on the reincarnated genre pitting karate agaisnt swords and sorcery.

Phantom Road #1 (Image Comics) – Dom is a long-haul truck driver attempting to stay ahead of his tragic past. That sounds interesting but it being by Jeff Lemire and Gabriel Hernandez Walta makes this a must.

Red Winter: Fallout #3 (Scout Comics) – All hell breaks loose as Joseph and Darya find themselves in a deadly gunfight with the Chistyye Krovi. Who will survive and what will be left of them?!

Red Zone #1 (AWA Studios) – When his support team of commandos is ambushed and killed, it’s up to Randall to fight his way out of Russia using his “particular set of skills.” It sounds like 80s action films are back!

Rogue and Gambit #1 (Marvel) – Krakoa is heading towards a shakeup and it sounds like this series may play a role in what’s to come.

Skull & Bones: Savage Storm #1 (Dark Horse) – Set in the world of the upcoming video game, there’s been a string of solid pirate comics lately. We’re hoping this continues that trend.

Spider-Man: Unforgiven #1 (Marvel) – There’s been solid changes to Marvel’s vampire world and we’re hoping this keeps up whatever direction they’re heading.

Where Monsters Lie #2 (Dark Horse) – The first issue was fantastic, introducing us to a community where slashers/serial killers live when they’re not doing their thing.

In 2023, Vampires Save the Marvel Universe in the Unforgiven Saga!

In 2023, a band of vampires will creep out of the darkest depths of the Marvel Universe to do the unthinkable–save the world! The FORGIVEN, the fan-favorite team of unlikely super heroes that debuted in 2011’s Fear Itself: Hulk vs. Dracula, will star in a series of one-shots next year. Written by Tim Seeley and drawn by Sid Kotian, the three-part story will reintroduce these strange heroes and see them make big waves across the Marvel Universe, interacting with the likes of the X-Men, Spider-Man, and, the team’s inspiration, Captain America.

Who can resist the call of the blood? A group of vigilante vampires have decided to fight crime — while at the same time, wage a desperate war within themselves to reject their own bloodthirsty natures! The Forgiven’s new saga will kick off in Spider-Man: Unforgiven #1 where the team will confront a new foe with a desire to transform vampires into their most powerful and violent selves. The storyline will then continue with more high-stakes vampire drama in X-Men: Unforgiven #1 and Avengers: Unforgiven #1. This epic struggle for the souls of the soulless will make readers rethink the place these creatures of the night have in the Marvel Universe!

Check out the cover of Spider-Man: Unforgiven below and see the FORGIVEN team up with some of Marvel’s greatest heroes next year! Check out the cover by Kyle Hotz.
