Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

the massive #30 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: The Massive #30 (Dark Horse) – Brian Wood‘s series wraps up, and the last few issues have been one hell of a twist. Dead calm. Quiet seas. Second chances? The Ninth Wave crew enter a brand-new chapter in Earth’s history.

Avengers and X-Men: AXIS #9 (Marvel) – Wrapping up Marvel’s so-so event. This is here because who knows how it’ll end and where things go from here.

Copra Round One Vol. 1 (Bergen Comics) – Check out the series all the “cool” kids are talking about. Collected here, cause single issues are hard to come by.

Evil Empire #9 (BOOM! Studios) – Every issue is beyond fantastic and usually there’s something we didn’t see coming.

The Graveyard Shift #1 (Image) – It’s Fright Night-style thrills and Castle-style crime-solving as a homicide detective and his girlfriend find their love put to the ultimate test when they run afoul of a gang of vampires!

Letter 44 #13 (Oni Press) – Mixing politics and science fiction, this series is awesome.

McBain #1 (Bongo Comics) -Do you watch The Simpsons? That alone should be reason enough to check out this series.

New Avengers #28 (Marvel) -If you want to figure out what’s up with Secret Wars, you better be reading this series. It’s really good too!

Rasputin #3 (Image) – The first two issues of this series has been fascinating, and the art is fantastic.

They’re Not Like Us #1 (Image) – We all have advantages over one another, but what if you were capable of things most of us can only imagine? What would you do – and who would you be? A doctor? An athlete? A soldier? A hero? Everyone has to make a choice about how to use the abilities they’re born with… but they’re not like us.

What if They’re Not Like Us?

Eisner-nominated writer and Image Comics Publisher Eric Stephenson collaborates with red-hot artist Simon Gane for the all-new ongoing thriller series They’re Not Like Us, coming to Image Comics on December 24.

We all have advantages over one another, but what if the next generation of youth were capable of things most of us could only imagine? What would they do—and who would they be? A doctor? An athlete? A soldier? A hero? Since the beginning of time we’ve all had to make choices about how to use our own unique abilities, but not like this generation… They’re Not Like Us.

In a spotlight interview with Stephenson, he described the series as a “slow-building horror” that explores what happens if people take advantage of their special abilities for personal gain instead of goodwill. “Power does different things to different people, and in They’re Not Like Us, we’re going to meet a group of very desensitized young people whose extraordinary abilities have put them in a very unique position within the modern world.”

They’re Not Like Us #1 arrives in stores this 12/24 and can be pre-ordered using Diamond Code OCT140592. The final order cutoff deadline is Monday, 12/1.
