Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Transformers '84 #0

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 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 Wednesday.

Bad Reception #1 (AfterShock) – It’s a celebrity wedding with no cellphones and no wifi and someone’s killing the guests. The concept sounds like entertaining slasher horror and we’re excited to check it out.

Criminal #7 (Image Comics) – One of the best comics on the market. Amazing writing and amazing art and consistently good. If you’re a fan of crime stories, this is a must and even if you’re not, check it out for the execution.

Excellence #4 (Image Comics/Skybound) – A new take on modern-day wizards, the series gets better with every issue.

The Goon #4

The Goon #4 (Albatross Funnybooks) – One of the most fun comics out there. It’s a comedic horror Popeye (these are all good things) that mixes some action and punching with a good dose of humor.

Powers of X #3 (Marvel) – We’re halfway through this volume of Jonathan Hickman’s reinvention of the X-Men and the ideas are out there and keep coming.

Pretty Violent #1 (Image Comics) – Gamma Rae wants to be a superhero and has had powers since she was a baby. The problem is, her siblings are notorious hero-murdering criminals. The comic sounds like an over the top superhero comedy and we’re here for it.

Springtime in Chernobyl (IDW Publishing) – Emmanuel Lepage chronicles his trip to Chernobyl in 2008 in this graphic memoir.

Strayed #1 (Dark Horse) – A military-industrial complex reigns over humanity and destroys alien worlds. The galaxy’s only hope is in an astral-projecting cat and its owner. This sounds like exactly what sci-fi is about, entertainment and reflecting on socio/political issues.

Superman: Year One #2 (DC Comics) – The first issue of Frank Miller and John Romita Jr.’s take on Superman’s origin was interesting and exceeded our expectations so we’re excited to see if the second issue can deliver too.

Transformers ’84 #0 (IDW Publishing) – Celebrating 35 years of Transformers, the issue is a prequel to the original comic series. Yeah, our inner child is squealing over this one.

An all-new prequel to the original 1984 Transformers #1! Celebrating 35 years of Transformers!

War has gripped the planet Cybertron, but an even deadlier threat looms-an asteroid belt powerful enough to destroy the metal world unless Autobot Field Commander Optimus Prime and his heroic recruits can clear a path for the planet. But what other motivations does Prime have for this mission? And how does it tie to a secret on Earth in the eleventh century?
