Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Monstress03_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.

Alex

Top Pick: Old Man Logan #1 (Marvel) – To say I’m looking forward to this book would be like saying Thanos isn’t a nice person. Aside from All-New Wolverine #1, which was a great first issue (although the series quickly lost my interest after that) it’s been a long time since I’ve picked up a comic featuring one of my all time favourite characters. I’m excited to see what’s in store for the old coot now that Secret Wars has brought him back around (although I’m still not convinced we won’t see the younger version back sooner or later), and I have been counting down the days until this debut issue is going to be released. Can. Not. Bloody. Wait.

Bloodshot Reborn #10 (Valiant) – Thirty years from now, something apocalyptic has happened, and water is a precious commodity. The beginning of  new arc is always touted by Valiant as a new jumping on point, and they’re not wrong here. If you’ve ever been curious about the nanite infested super soldier, this is as good a place as any to jump onto the ongoing series.

Faith #1 (Valiant) – If you had superpowers you’d enjoy them, right? Faith does. She’s a brilliant, fun character that originated in another Valiant series (that I haven’t read yet), and despite her backstory you don’t need to know it all. Valiant are extremely good about giving you only what you need to know to get to know the character and nothing more (so when you read that other series it won’t be spoiled for you). A superb comic. Why isn’t it on your pull list?

Negative Space #3 (Dark Horse) – This series has been on my radar since I got the first issue in a Comic Block some months ago. It’s a beautifully crushing look into the effects of depression, and a very compelling story. You NEED to read this book – honestly in any other week this would be my top pick, but my inner Wolverine fanboy wouldn’t shut up.

 

Benjamin

Top Pick: Prophet Earth War #1 (Image Comics) – From Brandon Graham and his crew,  loved the relaunch of prophet when it started and still do. This book makes me feel like singing Sinead O’Connor, Nothing  compares 2 U, when prophet is on a hiatus, or Brandon is doing other projects i count the days it is missing. The harmony between writers and artists is such a relief, they all on the same page with this and it’s fantastic.

Hip Hop Family Tree #6 (Fantagraphics) – Ed Piskor has basically perfected his style here, the fact that this resonates with the individuals portrayed is testament to its greatness. Do you really need more reason to pick up the best hip hop inspired comic on the stands?

Moon Girl and Devil Dinosaur #3 (Marvel) – I really want this book to succeed and then DD take over the marvel cinematic universe. Also my kids love dinosaurs, as they should.

Old Man Logan #1 (Marvel) – I can’t follow why this version of Wolverine is now in the main universe and Jeff Lemire can be hit or miss but with Andrea Sorrentino art? Gotta check it out and see what the story is.

Saga #33 (Image Comics) – I’m not a regular reader, just love looking at Fiona Staples artwork from time to time, but I don’t care for her Archie comics thing at all.

 

Brett

Top Pick: Faith #1 (Valiant) – This first issue is fantastic as Valiant’s breakout star gets her own ongoing series. Faith as a character is positive and finding her place in the world, and that’s on top of the fact she’s not the skinny unrealistic shape of so many other comic characters. Relateable in so many ways, Faith is going to be huge in 2016.

Dreaming Eagles #2 (Aftershock Comics) – Garth Ennis’ latest war comic just caught me by total surprise. It’s was so high quality, and really looking forward to seeing what the second issue is like.

Old Man Logan #1 (Marvel) – I loved the original “Old Man Logan” storyline. The return was kind of meh. Now, this older version of Wolverine gets his own series. His inclusion in the new Marvel U doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but the character itself captures the broken down western hero that fits the character so well.

Southern Bastards #13 (Image Comics) – The best comic on the stands, hands down.

Superman: Lois and Clark #4 (DC Comics) – If you want the look and feel of a more classic Superman, here you go. This comic has delivered with every issue and it’s one of the comics I look forward to the most each month from DC.

 

Elana

Top Pick: Monstress #3 (Image Comics) – Few comics have made a major artistic statement as quickly as Monstress has. Dense, lush, beautiful, terrifying and bloody– it is the best fantasy comic of the year. In it, a young woman wrestles with both the monster within her and the monstrous society she faces. Hear our interview with writer Marjorie Liu.

Angela Queen of Hel #4 (Marvel) – One of Marvel’s best. Painted art by Stephanie Hans is the most beautiful on the stands. Our narrator Sera is worldly, funny, fourth-wall breaking but not at all in the Deadpool way we’ve grown bored of and she’s a trans woman of color and in love with Angela. Sera is the best new Marvel character since Kamala Khan.

Black Magick #4 (Image Comics) – They call it a Witch Noir. Rucka is an ace writer of complex female detectives. The art is Nicola Scott’s best and the story stands very well on its own as an interesting mystery. Here’s what I said about issue 1.

Cry Havoc #1 (Image Comics) – I’m not usually in to war comics. But lesbian werewolf musician war comics?! That’s at least worth a first issue.

Ryan Kelly is a really accomplished comics artist and the kids seem to like Simon Spurrier too. The buzz has been strong.

Faith #1 (Valiant) – Meet the first plus-sized super-heroine to star in her own comic! And it’s a lot of fun! Even if you’ve never read a Valiant comic book before this is a welcoming read. This mini-series works great on it’s own and stars a comics geek. Fantasy sequences drawn by Marguerite Sauvage are especially beautiful. It’s great to see a character who is drawn as big and beautiful. Listen to our interview with writer Jody Houser.

 

Jason

Island #6 (Image Comics) – Even with the ever so slightly reduced page count, you can still count on Island to be the greatest anthology out there in terms of casting its net far and wide to bring attention to new and unheard of comics talent on a monthly basis. The highlight this month is the story “Badge of Pride” featuring a group of young anthropomorphic guys as they navigate the social minefield of their local Pride event. Having followed his work on and off for years now it’s thrilling to see Onta’s work shown to a more mainstream audience and I was fortunate enough that he had time to answer a few of my questions last week about his new, more personal and story driven outing for Island.

This month also presents work from Gael B as well as a recolored, reprinted sci-fi classic in the form of Fil Barlow’s Zooniverse.

Saga #33 (Image Comics) – Thirty Three issues in and Vaughan and Staples sci-fi epic shows no signs of slowing down as it continues to shock, thrill and delight in equal measures. Staples beautiful cover shows that the adorable journalistic couple Upsher and Doff are back after being warned off reporting on the story of Marko and Alana way back in the books second arc. While only briefly touched upon I look forward to seeing how Vaughan develops the relationship between the pair as they become embroiled deeper in conflict and conspiracy. It’s been briefly hinted that the pairs society doesn’t look kindly on same sex couples and it will be fascinating to see what the writer has to say on the subject in a series that really pulls no punches with its social commentary.

 

Javier

Top Pick: Southern Bastards #13 (Image Comics) – I love southern fried chicken, so it’s no surprise I’ve taken a liking to Jason Aaron’s and Jason Latour’s complex, bleak, and brutal self proclaimed “Southern Fried Comic.”  The writers are taking their sweet tea time fleshing out each installment.

Cry Havoc #1 (Image Comics) – With a tagline that reads … “this is not the tale of a lesbian werewolf who goes to war. Except it kind of is” … you have to check out what it’s about.

Deadly Class #18 (Image Comics)– It’s finals week at Kings Dominion School for the Deadly Arts. Rick Remender’s dark depressive writing pulls you in deep into the violence.

Six #3 (451 Media) – In the last issue we took a step back to get the background story on Sarah’s coffee business, so I’m excited to hopefully see the team in action in this issue. The tension is building up slowly.

Wild’s End: Enemy Within #5 (BOOM! Studios) – I really hope they make this into an animated sci-fi feature. It’s H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds in a Watership Down bucolic setting, with a wide cast of animal characters.

 

Madison

Top Pick: Monstress #3 (Image Comics) – If you, like me, are trying to diversify your reading this year, Monstress would be a great start. Image’s website describes it as “steampunk meets kaiju,” and both the story and the art are absolutely beautiful.

Black Canary #7 (DC Comics) – I absolutely adore Annie Wu’s art, and I’m always here for kick-butt lady characters. Black Canary is always one of the first comics I read on Wednesdays.

The Unbeatable Squirrel Girl #4 (Marvel) – I love Unbeatable Squirrel Girl partially because her narrative voice is very similar to how I speak in real life. I also love Unbeatable Squirrel Girl because it’s adorable (I mean have you seen Erica Henderson’s art? Have you seen it.), upbeat, and hilarious.

 

Mr. H

Top Pick: Superman: Lois and Clark #4 (DC Comics) – Out of all the post Convergence titles, this one has been the sleeper for me. An in continuity tale with the REAL Superman. Good to see the marriage in tact and not magically wished away to a demon. I like the idea of Clark working from the shadows but can’t wait till he meets the New 52 Kal-El at some point. For now a very fun book that has long time fans buzzing.

Old Man Logan #1 (Marvel Comics) – The old (literally now) Canucklehead gets his own series. He’s trying to write the wrongs of his past. It’s Logan channeling Clint Eastwood. Ummm count me in!

Superman #48 (DC Comics) – The journey for Superman to get his powers back continues. This time he resorts to.. kryptonite? Ok I’ll bite but Vandalia Savage has been the highlight here so far. Guess I need to see where it’s going. So it’s time to up up and glow?

 

Paul

Top Pick: Extraordinary X-Men #6 (Marvel) – Been loving this title from issue #1; great team, great art and a great ride so far.  This issue has the team responding to a distress call from Weirdworld….sure ok.  I only know of this Weirdworld from seeing solicits for the book, so this will be an interesting read.

All-New Inhumans #3 (Marvel) – I am liking this title; a ship of volunteers traveling the world offering inhumanitarian aid (clever, I know) to those affected by the terrigen cloud released by Black Bolt.  The current storyline is a rehash; government taking advantage of the situation and using inhumans as weapons for their cause, but it works for this new climate.  And I am really enjoying Crystal in this leadership role. I always thought she could be more bad ass, and she’s really showing it here, but also showing some of it is a front and she needs her family.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

MIRAGE-SEC_001_COVER-A_DJURDJEVICWednesdays 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.

Alex

Top Pick: Rocketeer At War #1 (IDW Publishing) – I loved the Rocketeer movie, and I can’t wait to get my hands on this comic. It ticks three of my attention grabbing boxes: pulp style heroes, a mid  20th century setting, and the Rocketeer. Will it actually be any good? I’ll find out and let you know!

Dark Knight III: The Master Race #2 (DC Comics) – I still haven’t read the first issue, yet, but with all the great things I’ve heard about that, it’s easy to be excited for this issue. Just not the price tag.

Extraordinary X-Men #4 (Marvel) – One of the best X-Men comics I’ve read in years, and it’s drawn by Humberto Ramos, who I’m a huge fan of. This is a comic that can’t really go wrong for me on paper.

 

Brett

Top Pick: The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage: Second Lives #1 (Valiant) – The first volume of Doctor Mirage was fantastic and to get a second just makes me happy. The character is awesome and art fantastic. Basically, what I’d expect from a Valiant book.

Darth Vader #14 (Marvel) – The latest entry to Vader Down? Yes please! The storyline reminds us how much of a badass Vader truly is.

Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #1 (Marvel) – It’s an intriguing character to be getting her own series, but she has a higher profile thanks to Jessica Jones. I want to see where it goes.

The Paybacks #4 (Dark Horse) – One of the funniest, most entertaining superhero comics this year. Each issue has delivered pure entertainment.

Venus #1 (BOOM! Studios) – Mankind head to the stars due to the depletion of natural resources on Earth. China has claimed Mars which forces the U.S. to head to Venus where things don’t go well. Sounds awesome.

 

Elana

Angela Queen of Hel #3 (Marvel) – “To the soundtrack of a totally sick Nordic death metal solo, Angela and Sera embark on the conquest to crown Angela Queen of the Dead…and encounter some who they have sent to the afterlife themselves!” – nuff said.

Island #5 (Image Comics) – Brandon Grahams ambitious anthology magazine features “Stories of space cannibalism, future tech dependency and volcano gods along with articles and illustration in the monthly oversized comics magazine.” this month!

Kaptara TP Vol. 1 (Image Comics) – The first issue’s title was “Space: Why you gotta be like that?” Everyone talks about Chip Zdarsky’s work on Sex Criminals, Howard the Duck, Jughead, but this creator-owned series is where his humor and inventiveness really shines. He’s doing a modern, adult riff on He-Man with a gay Indian-American in the lead Keith “Prince of the Dancefloor”. Kagan Mcleod’s art makes riotous cartoons out of He-Man and 70s space and sword and sorcery art. I love it.

Patsy Walker AKA Hellcat #1 (Marvel) – Hellcat? Hell yes! Writer Kate Leth is a fan-favorite bisexual feminist comics dynamo and she’s finally getting her first Marvel monthly title.  Patsy’s friends with all our favorite heroines; She-Hulk and now Jessica Jones (according to Netflix). This comic is positioned to be a hit.

Princeless Book 5 Make Yourself #0 (Action Lab Entertainment) – The all-ages series of girl knights, and scientists and pirates and rogues goes a little introspective in this story arc. It’s going to be great.

 

Javier

Top Pick: Bloodshot Reborn #9 (Valiant) – The current ‘Hunt’ arc comes to an end, so this will likely be an exciting new beginning for the main character.  Plus I am looking forward to Butch Guice’s alt cover.

The Death-Defying Doctor Mirage Second Lives #1 (Valiant) – Valiant attracts talent, and they lined up Jen Van Meter (Hopeless Savages) and acclaimed artist Roberto de la Torre. A lot of hype behind this one, so I’m going to check it out; and Valiant hasn’t disappointed me yet. Also, I’ve never read Meter’s Hopeless Savages, but I plan to pick up used copies of the graphic novels to see what I missed.

Moon Girl And Devil Dinosaur #2 (Marvel) – This one is just simple fun. They all don’t have to be dark and violent.

Pretty Deadly #7 (Image Comics) – One of these days DeConnick and Rios will explain this one.  All I know is that I walk away feeling enlightened after reading this fantastical blend of Western and Magical art.

Wild’s End: Enemy Within #4 (BOOM! Studios) – I’ve been enjoying this one as a sci-fi fan.  It’s Animal Farm meets War of the Worlds.

Retail Price: $3.99
Writers: Kyle Higgins, Mairghread Scott, Steve Orlando
Artists: Hendry Prasetyo, Daniel Bayliss
Cover Artist: Goñi Montes

What’s to Love: Saban’s Power Rangers is a multi-generational, globally recognized franchise. With its epic Ranger suits, giant Zords and Megazords, and—at its core—a story of super powered teens who defend the world from evil, the Power Rangers series is a pop-culture phenomenon that has continued to resonate with fans for more than 22 years. We, as huge Power Rangers fans ourselves, are excited to produce a modern Power Rangers comic featuring the iconic characters from the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers series.

What It Is: It’s Morphin Time! Saban’s Mighty Morphin Power Rangers make their BOOM! Studios comic debut in this kick-off #0 issue, which sets the stage for the rest of the series. After escaping Rita Repulsa’s mind control, Tommy Oliver, the Green Ranger, joins up with the rest of the Power Rangers to combat her never-ending evil plans. Any semblance of a normal life is gone for Tommy now, but with his newfound family there lies hope for a brighter path. Includes the short story from the San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Mighty Morphin Power Rangers comics!

THE LAST CONTRACT #1 (of 4)

Retail Price: $3.99
Writer: Ed Brisson
Artist: Lisandro Estherren
Cover Artists:
Main Cover: Lisandro Estherren
Incentive Cover: Vanesa R. Del Rey

What’s to Love: Last year, John Wick reminded everyone why hitmen make for awesome stories. Of course, we’ve known that for years as evidenced by The Killer and Hit. Ed Brisson’s (Batman & Robin Eternal, Sheltered) take on a retired hit man who finds himself as the target is a calculated thriller that kept us guessing until the end, and newcomer Lisandro Estherren’s (Tall Tales from the Badlands) noirish art perfectly sets the mood.

What It Is: A retired hit man, known only as “The Man,” is forced back into the game when a list of his kills is leaked by a mysterious blackmailer. The list makes targets out of anyone associated with one of the The Man’s previous jobs, not to mention The Man himself. As he fights to protect those the list exposes, The Man sets off to uncover the identity of the blackmailer so he can move on with his new life once and for all, but will the truth ruin those chances forever?

What’s to Love: The Ice King is probably one of the most tragic and hilarious characters in the Land of Ooo, but we’ve never had the chance to really focus exclusively on him before. Now we’re taking a look at just what makes the Ice King tick with writer Emily Partridge (Adventure Time) and artist Natalie Andrewson (Lumberjanes).

What It Is: The Ice King has always been there, kidnapping princesses, messing with Finn and Jake, and generally being a weirdo. But there’s way more to him than that! He’s a deep, thoughtful person with a heart full of love! Or…maybe he just really wants to marry a princess. Either way, this is one journey the citizens of Ooo aren’t likely to forget!

It’s an unflinching, visceral look at the lengths one woman will go to protect her friends, her family, and her home—perfect for fans of Rat Queens and the seminal ‘70s cult-favorite film The Warriors.

What It Is: Three gangs. Five girls. No way out. Machete Betty leads a small gang of women under the self-appointed task of protecting their home of Old Beach, one of three boroughs surrounding a rich metropolitan city. When Betty takes the life of a rival gang member in an act of self-defense, she sets off a chain reaction of retaliation, gang warfare, and unlikely allies. It’s up to the The Fever—Machete Betty, Derby Girl, Bloody Mary, Daisy Chain, and Violet Volt—to defend their turf at all costs. Collects the complete four-issue limited series.

We’re so excited to bring Corona’s first original series to readers in a beautiful collected hardcover edition.

What It Is: Born covered in black feathers, abandoned as a baby in the slums of the Maze, Poe has lived his entire 11-year-old life hidden away under the protection of his adoptive father, Gabriel. He spends his days secretly helping the Mice, bands of orphans who roam the slums, but there is a whisper of an altogether more sinister figure in the shadows, making street children disappear. When Bianca, an over-protected girl from the wealthy City beyond the Wall, escapes into the Maze in search of adventure, their worlds collide. Collects the complete six-issue limited series plus never-before-seen artwork.
