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.

Joyride #2, Boom! If you missed the first issue, go find it and then get on board for #2. A surprisingly fun bit of space opera here. Good stuff. Written by Jackson Lanzing and Collin Kelly, with art by Marcus To.


Superman Adventures Vol. 2 TPB, DC. More great done-in-one adventures set in the universe of the classic ’90s Superman animated series. A perfect dose of classic Superman tales.


Disney Magic Kingdom Comics #1, IDW Publishing. Rare Disney comics set in the theme parks, collected here for the first time in decades! Work by Carl Barks even!


Captain America Steve Rogers #1, Marvel. Steve Rogers restored to his proper age and role. It’s about time.


Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

DC Universe Rebirth Special #1, DC. Oh, c’mon, like I have to explain why.


Weird Love Vol. 3: I Joined a Teen-Age Sex Club! HC, Yoe Books/IDW. By far the most entertaining and hilarious archival book on the shelves these days. And I’m not just saying that because we’re blurbed on the front. (“Lurid!”) Collects several issues of the bimonthly bacchanal of prurient parables and potboilers.


Captain America: Steve Rogers #1, Marvel. The Free Comic Book Day issue was so good, I made it a Hot Pick the week after it came out to make sure people didn’t miss it. Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz are in charge of Captain Steve’s new adventures.


Red Wolf #6, Marvel. Can’t you just see Brad Leland as the mayor? You know him, he played Buddy Garrity on Friday Night Lights. Perfect casting if you ask me. By Nathan Edmondson, Dalibor Talajic and the incredible covers of Jeffrey Veregge.


Superman #52, DC. Peter J. Tomasi and Mikel Janin bring us the final fate of the New 52 Superman. Maybe.


As usual, my Batman picks will come in the BATBOOK OF THE WEEK column — part of BATMAN’S HOT-LINE. You can also find my regular Star Trek picks in the TREK TUESDAYS column.
