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.

Action Comics #1001 (DC Comics) – There’s fires being set in Metropolis and Superman may be behind them. This series focuses on the Man of Steel who’s now a bachelor…

Bone Parish #1 (BOOM! Studios) – There’s a new drug that involves grinding up corpses. There’s some mob aspects and a hell of a twist towards the end.

Britannia: Lost Eagles of Rome #1 (Valiant Entertainment) – The first volume was fantastic and we’re expecting no less from this brand new volume.

Doomsday Clock #6 (DC Comics) – An issue devoted to adding depth to the series’ two new villains and what happens when they meet the villains of the DC Universe.

Harbinger Wars 2 #3 (Valiant Entertainment) – Valiant can do events and this is no exception.

Hellicious #1 (Starburn Industries Press) – An over the top laugh for those who enjoy I Hate Fairyland. Little demonic girl… nuff said.

Infinity Wars Prime #1 (Marvel) – Marvel’s cosmic event continues as it moves to the next phase.

Justice League Dark #1 (DC Comics) – There’s a new Justice League focused on the fallout of Justice League: No Justice and magic getting all wacky.

The Long Con #1 (Oni Press) – A disaster has befallen a major geek convention but are there survivors in the quarantined zone? A fun goof on con-life.

Mr. and Mrs. X #1 (Marvel) – Rogue and Gambit are married… lets see where that goes.

The New World #1 (Image Comics) – Ales Kot’s new series about the United States after the Second Civil War. This should be a good one!

Shanghai Red #2 (Image Comics) – The series is fantastic so far following a young woman’s revenge against the men who kidnapped her and threw her on a boat. It’s a brutal revenge tale.

Teen Titans #20 (DC Comics) – Damian is leading a new team of heroes with some interesting members and a hell of a dynamic.

Transformers: Unicron #2 (IDW Publishing) – The major event continues as Starscream attempts to step up and lead his Decepticons against Unicron!

X-Men Grand Design: Second Genesis #1 (Marvel) – Ed Piskor continues his take on the X-Men with this remixed history. Absolutely fantastic.

Starburn Industries Launches SBI Press on Free Comic Book Day and Announces New Staff

Starburns Industries, the production studio that brought you Rick and Morty, Anomalisa, and Harmonquest, is expanding beyond film and television development with Starburns Industries Press (SBI Press), a publisher of books, comics and specialty cassette tapes.

SBI Press’ talent includes Dan Harmon (Community, Rick and Morty), Dino Stamatopoulos (Moral Orel, Community, Mr. Show), and the vast network of comedians, writers, and podcasters affiliated with Starburns Audio.

The new imprint has signed a distribution agreement with Diamond Comic Distributors the world’s largest distributor of English-language comic books, graphic novels, and pop culture products, and its book trade division, Diamond Book Distributors.

The new division is founded and headed by Starburns production executive Simon Oré, who will serve as President of SBI Press. Joining Oré to build the division are new hires Brendan Wright, formerly of Dark Horse Comics and New Arab Media, who comes on board as SBI Press VP and Executive Editor, and Trevor Richardson, formerly of Diamond Comics Distributors, who fills the role of SBI Press VP of Acquisitions. The staff is rounded out by Editorial & Production Assistants Ross Clark and Paige Dowling, and PR and Marketing Manager Cassandra Church, with Starburns Producer Casey Rup (VICELAND’s Party Legends, Ricking Morty) serving as producer and consulting editor.

SBI Press becomes the first publisher to debut through the comics industry’s annual Free Comic Book Day event with the showcase Starburns Presents on the first Saturday of May. The anthology title will preview the SBI Press’s 2018 slate, headlined by a short story from comedian and writer Patton Oswalt, artist Troy Nixey, and colorist Michelle Madsen.

Coinciding with Free Comic Book Day, the May edition of Diamond’s Previews catalog will include the company’s first launches: Dan Harmon’s biting take on supervillainy, Gregory Graves, cowritten with Eric M. Esquivel, and illustrated by Brent Schoonover, Ted Naifeh, and Rebecca Nalty; Dino Stamatopolous and Leah Triscione’s graphic novel Trent, “a lighthearted tragedy with music”; and the company’s first series, Hellicious, a family comedy set in Hell, written by Alan C. Medina and Mina Elwell and illustrated by Kit Wallis and Jio Butler.

From there, the first wave of titles in 2018 continues with Comics Comics, teaming fan-favorite stand-up comedians with leading comic industry talent in an anthology series, Oddwell: The Frog of War, a fantasy-adventure comic series from writers David A. Clarke and Walter A. Bryant III and artist Acacia T. Rodarte; and The Crawling King, an illustrated dark fantasy novel by award-winning filmmaker and animator Einar Baldvin.

Hellicious By A.C. Medina, Mina Elwell, and Starburns Industries Press

Written by A.C. Medina and Mina Elwell, with art by Kit Wallis, Hellicious is a family comedy set in Hell.

Cherry, the Devil’s prankster granddaughter and the cutest grim reaper in Hell, is honestly just trying to have fun and make new friends. She just keeps getting derailed by the fact that human beings are flammable.

Don’t Torture Yourself — That’s Her Job…

She loves everything about Hell – its burning landscapes, its horrific inhabitants, and especially her demonic mother and grandfather – but she’s lonely. There’s nobody to play with, and anyone who tries ends up being defenestrated or digested or otherwise destroyed.

There’s only one mortal who Cherry thinks might be a good playmate: rock star and goth icon Briggy Bundy. The bad news is, he isn’t dead…Yet.

Being published by Starburns Industries Press, you’ll be able to get your first look during this year’s Free Comic Book Day before it goes on sale July 2018.
