Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

united states of muder inc 4 coverWednesdays 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! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.

Pick of the Week: United States of Murder Inc. #4 (Marvel/Icon) – Valentine and Jagger are on the run as the five families meet to decide the fate of the United States of Murder Inc. The alternate world story where the mob controls large parts of the United States has been a fun, and gripping read.

Armor Hunters #3 (Valiant Entertainment) –  Valiant has one of the best universes out there, and their current Armor Hunters storyline has been fantastic. It’s still not too late to get in on a great comic company.

Doberman #2 (Darby Pop Publishing/IDW Publishing) – 80s cheesy cop movies come to comics. Hilarious, and nostalgic at the same time.

The F1rst Hero #1 (Action Lab Entertainment) – A new series from Action Lab has a world where people with super powers just begin to emerge. The first issue is fantastic, both as an introduction to this world, and also a one and done comic.

Genius #2 (Top Cow Productions) – I liked the first issue when I read it four years ago, and have been waiting for the second issue to hit. A nice spin on the idea of gangs in America.

Skullkickers #30 (Image Comics) – A stand alone issue before the next arc begins. Skullkickers is entertaining fantasy, and every issue is fantastic.

Starlight #5 (Image Comics) – Mark Millar’s Flash Gordon homage has been damn near perfect with each issue. Fun, entertaining, and pays tribute to classic pulp fun.

Transformers: Primacy #1 (IDW Publishing) – Some more Transformers history filling in the gaps of the war between the Autobots and the Decepticons. The story is solid and art beautiful to look at.

The Walking Dead #130 (Skybound) – If you caught the end of last issue, how can you not want to read this one!?

Wolverine #11 (Marvel) – Marvel has big plans coming for Wolverine, and this is leading up to all of that.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Spread01_CoverWednesdays 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! Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out and think about picking up.

Top Pick: Spread #1 (Image) – When humanity unleashed an ancient evil that nearly consumes the earth, one man (with a potential immunity to the mass) might hold the key to survival. Spread the word, this looks good, and is likely to be a sell-out hit.

Grayson #1 (DC) – If Dick Grayson in a new spy thriller series doesn’t grab you, their tag line HAS to: “You might think you know Nightwing – but you don’t know Dick.”

The Life After #1 (Oni Press) – Josh Fialkov’s trippy new series is an interesting look at the after life. As with Fialkov’s other work, this is one that’s not to be missed.

Lumberjanes #4 (BOOM! Studios/BOOM! Box) – Are you reading one the freshest series to come out in a LONG time? This female powered series revolves around mysteries at a summer camp. Fun, with a diverse cast, and empowering, this is the exact type of comic we should be seeing more of.

New Suicide Squad #1 (DC) – With new members (Joker’s Daughter, Deathstroke, and Black Manta) and new locations (Russia!), Task Force X just got a jolt of adrenaline.

Spider-Man 2099 #1 (Marvel) – I have mixed memories of comics in the 90s. A bright spot was some of Marvel’s 2099 line, especially Spider-Man. Because fans demanded it, Marvel is bringing it back, but with a twist. Miguel O’Hara is stuck in the present, and must deal with being a time-displaced Spider-Man.

Star Wars #19 (Dark Horse) – It will be a sad day when not only this series, but Dark Horse’s Star Wars license comes to an end. At least Dark Horse can hold their head high knowing they’ve done this intergalactic universe true justice.

The Strain Vol. 1 (Dark Horse) – Get the comic before the television series debuts this Sunday. I’m sure on Monday, everyone will be buzzing about this modern vampire tale.

The United States of Murder Inc. #3 (Marvel/Icon) – A mob tale with a twist. Brian Michael Bendis and Michael Avon Oeming’s series is so good, it’s right up there with some of my favorite movies about the mob.

The Walking Dead #129 (Skybound/Image Comics) – Writer Robert Kirkman has shaken up the story, and given us some new perspectives in the world of Rick Grimes and his people. This is the peace after the war, but is it easier to maintain than constant battle?

Lumberjanes_003_coverAWednesdays 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. Below are ten suggestions of comics, graphic novels, or trade paperbacks you should spend some extra time checking out.

Top Pick: Lumberjanes #3 (BOOM! Studios) – People often describe a series as “what we need more of” in comics. This series is absolutely that and more. The comic follows a group of girls at summer camp is a mix of Scooby Doo and Buffy created by a kick-ass female creative team. It’s the diversity we’ve been looking for plus the quality comic we should all hope for. The best of all worlds, it is a must add to everyone’s pull list and one of the hottest comics of the year.

Armor Hunters #1 (Valiant) – Valiant has the most cohesive and entertaining super hero universe from a publisher. This new series is a centerpiece of their summer event that sees a group come to Earth to take care of the X-O Manowar armor.

The Empty Man #1 (BOOM! Studios) – BOOM! is known for quality horror comics and Cullen Bunn creates quality comics period. Put them together and you get this interesting series that features the art of Vanesa R. Del Rey.

Manifest Destiny #7 (Image Comics) – This re-imagining of Lewis and Clark’s journey has been amazing with each issue.

Red City #1 (Image Comics) – A new series from Image that seems like an intriguing detective series set in the midst of a civil war.

She-Hulk #5 (Marvel) – One of the best debuts of All New Marvel NOW! features fantastic art and the amazing writing of Charles Soule. A mix of super hero antics with the backdrop of how it’d affect one’s real life.

Starlight #4 (Image Comics) – Mark Millar’s series takes Flash Gordon and updates it for modern times. Each issue has been beyond solid with a touch of nostalgia.

Transformers: Robots in Disguise #30 (IDW Publishing) – IDW’s Transformers universe has been amazing and the new direction its moving has made each issue of each series a great read.

United States of Murder Inc #2 (Marvel/Icon) – Brian Michael Bendis has given us an alternative world where the mob has taken over.

The Walking Dead #128 (Skybound) – Where does the series go after All Out War? Last issue gave us a hint, and injected the series with amazing juice. If you’ve wondered what the series is about, it’s a perfect time to hop on.
