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.

The Facts in the Case of the Departure of Miss Finch HC, Dark Horse. Glad to get this lesser-known Neil Gaiman book back in print.


Silly Symphonies, Vol. 1 HC, IDW/Disney Comics. I’m loving all of this rare Disney material from the 1930s I’ve never seen before, thanks to IDW’s Disney archives collections.


Astonishing Ant-Man, Vol. 1: Everybody Loves Team-Ups TPB, Marvel. This first collection of Nick Spencer’s new Ant-Man series digs deep to bring back some of my favorite goofy Marvel characters, like the Grizzly, the Porcupine and Whirlwind. Art by Ramon Rosanas.


Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Micronauts #1, IDW. I was not a Micronauts kid but I remember what a huge following they had. So this is more a public service in case you were unaware that they’re returning this week, from Cullen Bunn, David Baldeon, David Garcia-Cruz and co.


Old Man Logan #5, Marvel. This series has been great and I look forward to every new issue. The erstwhile Wolverine is here from an apocalyptic future that may or may not come to pass (you know how pesky those futures are) and every issue has featured a team-up or showdown with a different Marvel character while Logan hunts down the people responsible for said apocalyptic future. Breezy yet potent at the same time. (Sounds like a wine review, eh, bub?) Consistently strong work by Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino.


Captain America Omnibus Vol. 1, Marvel. If I had the scratch lying around right now — it lists for $125 — I might buy this, even if I’m not a big omnibus reader. (They’re heavy!) This one collects Cap’s Silver Age return by Stan and Jack, and takes us through Steranko’s tenure. Letters pages included — plus an analysis of his own work by Steranko himself. Nuff said.


Lost in Space: The Lost Adventures #2, American Gothic Press. I had my doubts going into Issue #1, but man the little $3.99 gamble paid off. Holly Interlandi and Kostas Pantoulas did a fine job adapting Lost in Space writer Carey Wilber’s unfilmed teleplay. It was more set-up than action so I expect things to get even more Lost in Space-y in Issue #2.


4 Kids Walk Into a Bank, Black Mask. Matthew Rosenberg and Tyler Boss’ new comic has been getting insane levels of buzz so I think I’d be pretty dumb if I didn’t check it out, y’know? Me, I just like that letterer Thomas Mauer is getting top billing here.


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