The Akira App has launched and the battle for control of social media has truly begun. Its two generals both fight from beyond the grave. But who was Larry Ferrell? How did he become a billionaire at such a young age? Why did he start the “140 List”? And how, exactly, did he return from the dead? The truth of the Unfollow experiment is revealed.

This is Akira’s story. His fame has never been greater, and his new app is the most anticipated in history. But what “secrets from beyond the hereafter” will it reveal on its launch? Can immortality be achieved? Can life exist beyond the grave? Can Akira defeat Larry Ferrell’s 140 experiment and take the world toward peace? And why did he really hack off his own legs with a samurai sword?

In Russia, Dave, Deacon and Ravan have a choice to make: take the Ekranoplan and run for their lives, or evolve into something terrifying. Meanwhile, Courtney’s game-changing revelation stuns the other “140” exiles. Can Akira’s peace compound live up to its name? Or is there a terrible price to pay if one wants to truly become a social media messiah?

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Civil_War_II_1_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!

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.

Paul

Top Pick: Civil War II #1 (Marvel) – Here it is!  The start of the next event that is going to split the hero community in half…again.  You would think they would have learned after the first throw down.  This time though, it isn’t registration that is looking to control the heroes and their actions; now we have an Inhuman who can see into the future…and there are those who think this can be used to prevent disastrous events.  Is the future written in stone?  Can you hold someone responsible for something they may do?  That’s what the Marvel Universe will be exploring and you can bet it’s going to get ugly.

A-Force #6 (Marvel) – It’s A-Force vs. Nico (under the control of the Countess).  Medusa has been skeptical about Nico’s powers from the start of this team…it’s going to be very interesting for her to find out first hand just what Sister Grimm can do.  I just hope A-Force survive the ordeal.  I’ve been a fan of this book since the start, and I am always excited when a new issue comes out.  It’s a great read with laughs, sass and action; who can ask for anything more?

Green Arrow: Rebirth #1 (DC) – Yeah yeah, here’s a DC title on my list.  I’ll be honest, I’m interested in this to see Black Canary and Green Arrow together again.  Yes, I know that is just the gimmick (as mentioned in previous articles) DC is using to get readers into this Rebirth.  Me, not being a regular to the DC universe, think this is a great time to jump in and see if it’s enough to make me consider making room for DC AND Marvel in my life.

Old Man Logan #7 (Marvel) – Logan is just looking to lay low and figure out his place in this new world he’s found himself in.  Too bad Lady Deathstrike and her Reavers have other plans.  I am really looking forward to seeing this showdown; this isn’t the Logan that Deathstrike is expecting to find…she may just get more then she bargained for.

 

Javier

Top Pick: Batman: Rebirth #1 (DC Comics) – It’s our first look with Tom King who is taking over writing duties from Scott Snyder.

Deadly Class #21 (Image Comics) – Summer finally is here, as freshmen finals end; but another freshman fails to make it to sophomore year.  Rick Remender’s depressive, but action filled, take on prep school assassination madness,continues to entertain.

The Goddamned #4 (Image Comics) – Another biblical inspired story. It focuses on a seemingly immortal and wandering Cain, after the fall; set in the period of the mythical Nephilim prior to the flood. Jason Aaron weaves yet another must-read grim proto-human story.

Saints #9 (Image Comics) – Another excellent maxi-series reaches its conclusion. The holy war (or unholy, depending on your opinion) ends, when the young and hipster Saints crew come face to face with the Archangel Michael and God.

Unfollow #8 (DC Vertigo) – This dark spin on social media continues, with more of the 140 dropping off, but a new follower enters the fray.

 

Anthony

Top Pick: Birth of Kitaro GN (Drawn & Quarterly) – Kitaro is one of the most beloved characters in Japan. Created by Shigeru Mizuki, the titular character encounters a wide variety of yokai (creatures from Japanese folklore) in stories that appeal to both those interested in Japanese folklore and mythology as well as funny, great, entertaining manga. Finally, the West gets the first of a planned series of volumes with a translation by Zack Davisson.

Civil War II #1 (Marvel) – Say what you will about events for Marvel, this one looks to be the first event to make an impact in the post Secret Wars universe. Issue #0 didn’t really set many things up but did show a not too pleasant looking future. It will be refreshing to hopefully continue to have the series’ perspective from the same characters from the introductory issue.

Moon Knight #3 (Marvel) – Jeff Lemire, Greg Smallwood and Jordie Bellaire have been hypnotizing the reader thus far with a mysterious, brooding tale of Marc Spector combatting both demons (or Gods) both in his mind and in the physical world. This series has picked up the reigns from the last run of ‘Moon Knight’ and continues to prove that the character is one of the most intriguing in the Marvel universe.

Paper Girls #6 (Image Comics) – The first five issues were a fun callback to the action/adventure movies of the 1980s. It will be interesting to see what is in store with this title as the time frame switches to 2016. Plus, it is pretty hard to pass on Brian K. Vaughan, Cliff Chiang’s gorgeous visuals and one of the best colourists in the game with Matt Wilson.

The Revisionist #1 (Aftershock Comics) – Frank J. Barbiere is back with another intriguing title that is sure to bring the wit and fun nature of past titles like ‘Five Ghosts’, alongside artist Garry Brown and colourist Lauren Affe. All it takes, beyond the creative team, to be sold on this book are three words: time-travelling assassin. Plus, Aftershock has been releasing some really fresh, outside the box kinds of titles.

 

Alex

Top Pick: 4001 A.D. #2 (Valiant) – I’m not going to lie – I’ve already read this. It’s my top pick because I can’t wait to see the artwork in printed form. So excited.

The Goddamned #4 (Image Comics) – It feels like an age since the third issue came out, and I hadn’t realized how much I missed reading Jason Aaron’s take on the time before Noah needed his Arc. Brutal, bloody, and probably offensive. I love it.

Moon Knight #3 (Marvel) – To be honest, this isn’t the best Moon Knight series I’ve ever read, but it’s far from the worst. With each issue getting a little better, I’m hopeful for the rest of the series.

Old Man Logan #7 (Marvel) – After the anticlimactic first arc, the old man’s second story arc is, so far at least, feeling a hell of a lot better. What’s more classic Wolvie feeling than having him face off against the Reavers?

Will Eisner’s The Spirit #11 (Dynamite Entertainment) – Speaking of things I love… this is arguably the best series being published right now featuring an urban based vigilante.

 

Brett

Top Pick: The Red Virgin & the Vision of Utopia (Dark Horse) – A portrait of revolutionary feminist Louise Michel, who took up arms against a French regime that executed thousands. Deported to a penal colony, Michel joined the cause of the indigenous population against colonial oppression. Is there a more “me” graphic novel? Been reading it, and it’s really interesting.

Chum #2 (Comixtribe) – The first issue was a great mix of surfing and noir. Take Jaws, minus the giant shark, and add a crime story to it, and you have this comic. So good and looking forward to seeing where it all goes.

Hellboy in Hell #10 (Dark Horse) – This is it. Hellboy transforms into what he was always meant to be as Mike Mignola wraps up this series.

Rough Riders #3 (Aftershock Comics) – FDR and his gang of historical figures are heading to Cuba. There’s something really fun about this alternate history comic that dives deep into real history to get things right. It’s entertaining and will get you to do some research too.

Superman: Rebirth #1 (DC Comics) – I loved the Superman: Lois and Clark miniseries and to see where and how this Superman fits into the Rebirth universe is going to be very interesting. That miniseries was filled with action, but also a lot of positivity. This issue serves as a fantastic end cap to that bridging the cap between that and what’s to come.

Black_Panther_1_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!

Alex

Top Pick: Old Man Logan #4 (Marvel) – I’m more excited by this comic than any other this week because I’ve been diving through my long boxes looking for another comic to reread for Graphic Policy’s “From The Vault” feature. I’m pretty sure I know which one it’ll be, and with it being an older Wolverine comic it got me stupidly excited for the current ongoing series featuring the old clawed Canadian.

Detective Comics #51 (DC Comics) – We all saw Bruce Wayne come back in Batman #50, but after such a brilliant Jim Gordon Batman tale the last three issues, it’d be a shame to move on from Gordon as he finds his feet. I’m chuffed that we get at least one more Gordon as Batman story before Rebirth hits the DC Universe.

Johnny Red #6 (Titan Comics) – Just look at that cover. It’s wonderful. And with the last issue ending with Johnny stumbling across a certain Nazi leader, Wednesday can’t come soon enough…

Ninjak #14 (Valiant) – One of Valiant’s best series (to be honest I could actually say that about most of Valiant’s comics) stumbled a little last issue, but with a new arc kicking off in #14 I’m hoping the series takes off running again.

 

Javier

Top Pick: Sheriff of Babylon #5 (Vertigo Comics) – Tom King’s police procedural set in postwar Bagdhad’s Green Zone is captivating.

Black Panther #1 (Marvel) – It’s written by a bonafide Genius. Enuf said!

Black Widow #2 (Marvel) – After reading the first issue, all I can say is WOW. It’s been a long time since I seen anything like that come out of Marvel. Pure superhero action. Let’s see if it carry overs into the next few issues.

Old Man Logan #4 (Marvel) – I know two old men going at it is far from sexy, but they are kicking ass and taking names! Old Man Logan versus Aged Steve Rogers.

Unfollow #6  (Vertigo Comics) – Rob Williams dark satire on social media is a must read.  The Deacon character get’s special treatment in this issue and bonus: R.M. Guera returns to Vertigo as the guest-artist in this issue.

 

Brett

The Fix #1 (Image Comics) – I’ve read the first issue and it blew me away with the pacing, the humor, everything about it. From Nick Spencer and Steve Lieber this comic is as fantastic as all of their other collaborations. To tell you more about it would ruin it, but if you’re a fan of Superior Foes of Spider-Man, you’ll love this comic.

Black Panther #1 (Marvel) – One of my most anticipated comics for the first half of this year. The combo of Ta-Nehisi Coates as the writer and Brian Stelfreeze as the artist has me excited to see what they can do with this classic character.

Black Widow #2 (Marvel) – The first issue was damn near perfect. It launched with an exciting action sequence that was little on words and lots on excitement. Mark Waid and Chris Samnee absolutely got my attention with their take on the character, no lets see what they can do with her.

Interceptor #4 (Heavy Metal) – A cool sci-fi series involving vampires and roaming motorcycle gangs. It’s just a fun read.

Rough Riders #1 (Aftershock Comics) – This new series from Aftershock mixes Theodore Roosevelt, Harry Houdini, Jack Johnson, Annie Oakley into a kick ass team. I’m beyond intrigued.

 

Mr. H

Top Pick: Harley Quinn April Fools Day Special #1 (DC Comics) – This looks absolutely fun and great! Harley starting a support group for Super villains. Such possibilities for super powered hijinx! Count me in, I have problems too! Plus art by Jim Lee!!

Earth One: Wonder Woman (DC Comics) – The mad Scotsman Grant Morrison taking on Diana and her origin. Sexuality and the Purple Ray. Safe to say this will have estrogen power abound! I’m very excited for this one and to see the Steve Trevor and Amazon updates. Hopefully still an Invisible Plane around. Gotta get this one!
