Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Kang the Conqueror #1
Mike Del Mundo

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.

1984 the Graphic Novel (Houghton Mifflin Company) – George Orwell’s classic book gets a graphic novel adaptation.

The Box #1 (Red 5 Comics) – A private detective is framed for kidnapping as a plot to take his magical box away begins.

Eat the Rich #1 (BOOM! Studios) – A new psychological horror series. Under the affluent perfection lies a dark, deadly rot…

Kang the Conqueror #1 (Marvel) – Discover the history of the man who will become Kang the Conqueror in this miniseries.

Killer Queens #1 (Dark Horse Comics) – Meet Max and Alex. Reformed intergalactic assassins for hire. On the run. Also super gay.

Moon Knight #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was an interesting new take on the character that has him focused on a small area and taking on things that go bump in the night. With new opposition, it’ll be interesting to see where the series goes.

Nocterra #6 (Image Comics) – The first story arc for the series wraps up in an oversized issue! It’s been a solid series so far and we’re excited to see how the arc ends.

Sam & His Talking Gun #4 (Scout Comics) – The title really says it all in this tale of revenge.

Second Chances #1 (Image Comics) – The Second Chance Hotline allows you to get a new identity, as long as you have some cash, referral, and good reason to start over.

Serial #6 (Abstract Studio) – The series keeps getting better with each issue in this horror/crime series.

Superman and the Authority #2 (DC Comics) – We loved the first issue that had Superman stepping out of his comfort zone and putting together a new team.

Warhammer 40,000: Sisters of Battle #1 (Marvel) – The second entry in Marvel’s take on Games Workshop’s popular setting is here. The series shifts the focus to a group of Sisters of Battle dealing with an uprising on a planet.

X-Men: Trial of Magneto #1 (Marvel) – The Scarlet Witch is dead… who did it?

X-O Manowar #5 (Valiant Entertainment) – A jumping-on point. X-O Manowar must battle a nanite monstrosity devouring the earth.
