Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

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 are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

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

Catalyst Prime: Accell #3 (Lion Forge Comics) – Lion Forge has been knocking it out of the park with their new line of superhero comics and this is one that’s tons of fun.

Centipede #2 (Dynamite Entertainment) – The first issue was a surprising solid read. Based on the classic Atari game it’s history sucked us in but the first issue has us coming back.

The Defenders #4 (Marvel) – The first three issues have been fantastic and we’re interested in seeing where this goes and how it lines up with the upcoming Netflix series.

First Strike #1 (IDW Publishing) – The next big event in the Hasbro universe kicks off here. To see GI Joe and Transformers interact, we’re sold.

Generations: Phoenix & Jean Grey #1 (Marvel) – The first “Generations” comic was a dud but we want to see if that was a fluke or if it was par.

Ghost Money #1 (Lion Forge Comics) – Money was stolen with 9/11 in this new series which has one of the most unique concepts we’ve heard in quite some time.

Grass Kings #6 (BOOM! Studios) – The first five issues have been as amazing to read as they are to look at.

Ian Livingstone’s Freeway Fighter #4 (Titan Comics) – The first three issues have been high octane entertainment in what feels like a series that deserves more time. Hopefully we’ll get more after this story wraps up.

Inhumans: Once and Future Kings #1 (Marvel) – Christopher Priest is writing this. That alone has us interested.

Quake Champions #1 (Titan Comics) – The classic video game comes to comics and we’re intrigued to see what’s done with it.

Redlands #1 (Image Comics) – A creepy new series mixing vampires in a southern town. It’s good, real good. Read our review.

Star Wars: Doctor Aphra #11 (Marvel) – One of the best comics Marvel is putting out today. Aphra is the best addition to the Star Wars universe in a long time.

Star Wars: Rogue One – Cassian & K2SO Special #1 (Marvel) – Wonder how these two met? Well here you go!

Transformers: Till All Are One #12 (IDW Publishing) – I know what you’re saying, it’s a comic based on a cartoon featuring giant robots. Every series impresses with comics that touch on adult topics such as when life begins, castes, and politics. This one nails the latter with a story that rivals any story where individuals jockey for control.

The Unsound #3 (BOOM! Studios) – Cullen Bunn has been crafting a creepy horror comic that has layers to it that can be discussed for days.

Cassian Andor and his reprogrammed Imperial security droid K-2SO have a partnership that rivals the closeness of Luke Skywalker and R2-D2. But like all great stories, that wasn’t always the case. So how did the great partnership of human and droid come to be? This August, find out the real history between the two characters when Marvel releases Star Wars: Rogue One – Cassian & K-2SO Special #1, written by acclaimed author Duane Swierczynski with art by Fernando Blanco.
