Eisner Award-nominated writer Cullen Bunn (Harrow County, The Empty Man) is joined by brilliant newcomer artist Jack T. Cole to present a surreal psychological horror series that will have you questioning what it is to truly be crazy…
Ever since she was little, all Ashli wanted was to help people. It’s why she went to nursing school, and it’s why she signed up for the vacant position at Saint Cascia, despite the psychiatric hospital’s less-than-sterling reputation.

But when strange occurrences begin in the midst of her very first day on the job, Ashli is forced to escape through the labyrinthine bowels of the asylum to not only help her fellow nurses, but to save herself.

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.

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!

We’re bringing back something we haven’t done for a while, what the team thinks. Our contributors are choosing up to five books each week and why they’re choosing the books.

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

Joe

Top Pick: Deathstroke #21 (DC Comics) – This new team is super intriguing, and this run has already been great. The inclusion of Kid Flash intrigues me, as I’ve been reading Teen Titans too. DC has done a wonderful job of their universe and having things carry over to other books, and this is a great example of that.

Extremity #5 (Image Comics) – Johnson has crafted a fun and beautiful looking sci-fi/fantasy tale following our main character, who lost their drawing arm. The art is awesome, the action is great, and I recommend this book in single issue or the inevitable trade that will follow soon.

Batman #26 (DC Comics) – The “War of Jokes and Riddles” part two comes out this week, and I cannot wait. These versions of Joker and Riddler are fun, and I’ve enjoyed King’s run, even if it has been polarizing.

Superman #26 (DC Comics) – One of my favorite Rebirth comics. Tomasi and Gleason have weaved a fantastic series of arcs that have set up some fantastic things, including pulling in pieces of the new 52 run. I dig every issue.

Seven to Eternity #7 (Image Comics) – Remender’s crazy fantasy tale following the rag-tag group of misfits as they travel across a world that is enslaved by the God of Whispers. Highly recommended.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Motor Girl #7 (Abstract Studios) – Terry Moore’s series is one of the most entertaining out there and my favorite debut of the year so far. It’s a fantastic mix of sci-fi, humor, and tons of heart in a way that’s rare in today’s comic market. Add in the fact the main character Sam has a brain tumor, is kick-ass, served in the military, and her best friend is a talking ape, you also have one of the best characters of the year.

Catalyst Prime: Noble #3 (Lion Forge) – The Catalyst line of comics from Lion Forge has been one of the freshest universe debuts in a while. The characters and voices are diverse and its lead title Noble has sucked me into this new world leaving me wanting more.

The Unsound #2 (BOOM! Studios) – Cullen Bunn is a fantastic horror writer and the art from Jack Cole enhances the creepy atmosphere set up in this new series.

The Walking Dead #169 (Skybound/Image Comics) – All these issues in writer Robert Kirkman has shaken things up a lot and shaken some characters. I’m sucked in as to where it’s all going to go from here!

X-Men: Gold #7 (Marvel) – It’s taken quite some time but Marvel’s X-Men line is back and as reminding me of some of the classic runs I loved reading as a kid.

 

Alex

Top Pick: Bloodshot’s Day Off (Valiant) – Eliot Rahal is one of the most exciting writers in comics today. Bloodshot is an awesome character. A winning combination?

Batman #26 (DC Comics) – So.. Tom King has been on a winning streak lately. Here’s hoping he can continue on with that this week.
