HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

Scott and Dan pick the comics they’re most looking forward to this week …

Scott Tipton, co-owner, Blastoff Comics, North Hollywood, Calif.

Legends of Tomorrow #1, DC. While this has little to do with the currently airing CW television series, I can’t resist Gerry Conway returning to the character he created, Firestorm.


Coloring DC Batman Adventures Mad Love TPB, DC Collectibles. I’ll be honest. I don’t get this whole “adult coloring book” trend. But I also can’t pass up getting clean reproductions of original Bruce Timm art.


Airboy Archives, Vol. 4, IDW Publishing. More of the great Chuck Dixon Airfighters run from Eclipse Comics, finally collected.


Comic Book Apocalypse: The Graphic World of Jack Kirby, IDW Publishing. This companion book to a recent museum exhibition of Kirby’s art contains not only page after page of amazing Kirby originals, but also some great essays about the impact of the King.


Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Doctor Fate #10, DC. Paul Levitz and Sonny Liew’s reimagining of ol’ Doc Fate has been consistently entertaining from Issue #1. I’ll miss it when Rebirth comes along…


Superman: American Alien #5, DC. Max Landis’ new Superman origin — a story that on the face of it is wholly unnecessary — is the best such story since Byrne’s Man of Steel 30 years ago. Maybe it’s because people have Superman Origin Story Fatigue but it feels like this book should be a bigger deal than it is. It’s excellent.


Irwin Allen’s Lost in Space: Lost Adventures #1, American Gothic Press. I almost never write about Lost in Space, which I LOVED as a kid. I may have to rectify that soon. Anyway, this new series is based on unfilmed original scripts about the great Space Family Robinson. The opening arc is written by Holly Interlandi from Carey Wilber’s teleplay, with art by Kostas Pantoulas. Great cover by Steve Stanley there.


International Iron Man #1, Marvel. Bendis and Maleev on Tony’s second title. Gotta at least check it out, right?


As usual, my Batman picks will come in the BATBOOK OF THE WEEK column — part of BATMAN’S HOT-LINE

  1. Finally, someone who enjoys the current Doctor Fate series as much as I do. I guess it’s too much to hope that DC might give Levitz, Liew, and Loughridge the opportunity to revisit this Doctor Fate at some point with a miniseries. With the hints that “(Uncle) Kent Nelson” is entering the picture I am curious to see how the story plays out.

    I’ve also been enjoying Superman: American Alien. I guess the fact that it doesn’t necessarily tie in with current continuity helps (for me). And I’m looking forward to Legends of Tomorrow as well. I planned on purchasing all four of the features when originally announced as separate miniseries, so it’s kind of nice to see them packaged as a unit. I have a feeling that the guilty pleasure of the series may be the grown up Sugar and Spike.
