The conflict with political radicals that took one man’s life sits heavy with Jason. Accusations that, by continuing to be the superhero the American, he’s become a pawn for the government have taken on a new sharpness as the Civil Rights movement of the 1970s gains an added urgency. This call to do what’s right is one that his former ally Amber Waves has already answered by taking matters into her own hands and using her powers to protest injustice-and she’s already paying the deadly cost as the police and Federal agents attack her where she lives. The sequel to the hit comics series continues, crafted by writer John Ridley (TV’s American Crime and Guerrilla).

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.

Joe

Top Pick: Dark Nights: Metal #1 (DC Comics) – Snyder and Cappulo back on a Batman book that will have huge repercussions and changed for the DC universe. Hell yes!

Southern Bastards #17 (Image) – This book doesn’t come out often enough, and I’m only complaining because it’s so damn good.

Aquaman #27 (DC Comics) – This has been such a good arc with incredible art and I can’t wait to see where it goes.

All-New Guardians of the Galaxy #8 (Marvel) – This has been such a pleasant surprise to me and a lot of fun. Duggan knows how to tie the ridiculousness with action so well on Deadpool, and he brings that to this series.

Astonishing X-Men #2 (Marvel) – A really solid first issue that hit the nostalgia home run much more than Gold did for me. The ending teased something huge but I’m sure that was just a trick by a certain character.

 

Brett

Top Pick: American Way: Those Above and Below #2 (Vertigo) – Jon Ridley alone is enough to get me looking forward to this series but the first issue knocked it out of the park having me excited to read the second.

Catalyst Prime Superb #2 (Lion Forge Comics) – The first issue was solid and delivers on Catalyst Prime’s promises. I want to see where this second one goes to see if it can continue the positive direction of the entire line.

Future Quest Presents #1 (DC Comics) – A new anthology-ish series that continues the adventures of some of my favorite childhood characters.

Motor Girl #8 (Abstract Studios) – Easily the best comic on the market. It mixes humor and feels in a way no other comic is doing. Just utter perfection and the one I look forward to each and every month.

Sh*t My Presidents Says: Illustrated Tweets of Donald Trump (IDW Publishing) – Shannon Wheeler’s cartoons that bring President Trump’s tweets to life are collected in this book. It’s both funny and… sad.

Vertigo Announces Imaginary Fiends by Tim Seeley and Stephen Molnar

Vertigo joins together veteran horror writer Tim Seeley and artist Stephen Molnar to create a spine-tingling new series, Imaginary Fiends. The six-issue miniseries combines elements of both horror and sci-fi for a tale that will leave readers in shock and fear.

Years ago, a young girl named Brinke Calle was found covered in blood near the woods in the small rural town of Cannon Falls, MN, when her best friend Melba attempted to murder her. When investigators tried to understand why, Melba revealed that a spider girl named Polly Peachpit told her to. Years later, Melba is turning 18 and will begin her real sentence in federal prison. That is, until a new unit in the FBI recruits her, with an explanation for what happened so many years ago.

Another world exists beyond ours. One that is terrifying, where hungry spectral aliens stalk the minds of the weak and impressionable. And these parasites have leeched onto humanity for too long. But in order to understand them, Melba must first unleash her own monster.

This frightening new thriller will arrive November 15. Read at your own risk.

Now the brothers must team up with militant vampire hunters Edgar and Allan Frog when a new gang of ruthless, stunning, life-sucking nightcrawlers known as the Blood Belles emerges to collect Michael’s love interest and their lost sister, Star. Collects THE LOST BOYS #1-6.

Cain has been murdering his way across New York City, and Abel has been one step behind him the whole time.
