Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Red Room #1

Wednesdays (and now Tuesdays) 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 week.

Fantastic Four: Life Story #1 (Marvel) – A new take on the Fantastic Four looking at their lives in real time across the years.

Home #2 (Image Comics) – The series takes a hard look at immigration. The first issue delivered a finale that took the series in a fantastical direction and we’re intrigued as to where it goes from there.

Nottingham #3 (Mad Cave Studios) – A fresh take on the Robin Hood mythology.

Phantom on the Scan #2 (AfterShock) – The first issue had a solid X-Files vibe to it and we want to learn more about these characters, their powers, and why they’re dying.

Rangers of the Divide #1 (Dark Horse) – A new series following a Commander who stumbles upon a team of cadets after the nation’s peace keepers disappear.

Red Room #1 (Fantagraphics) – Ed Piskor’s new monthly comic series kicks off with a double-sized issue. Red Room is cyberpunk, outlaw, splatterpunk, entertainment.

Shang-Chi #1 (Marvel) – The previous miniseries was fantastic and we’re expecting no less when it comes to this new series.

Stray Dogs #4 (Image Comics) – We really don’t know if murders actually took place. But, we’re sucked into this series that’s kept us guessing what’s going on with every issue.

Way of X #2 (Marvel) – Nightcrawler explores the world of Krakoa and that includes the bad that lies underneath. The first issue was a solid exploration of the new world of the X-Men from a different perspective.

We Live Vol. 1 (AfterShock) – If you missed the individual issues, you have no excuse now. This is an emotional journey and one hell of a debut.

White Lily #3 (Red 5 Comics) – Based on real history, the story focuses on a Russian female fighter pilot during World War II, one of the best ever.

Wonder Girl #1 (DC Comics) – The new Wonder Girl starts off here! From what we know from Future State, this is going to be a major character in the DC Universe for years to come!
