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.

Jack Kirby’s Mighty Thor Artist’s Edition, IDW Publishing. Enjoy original Kirby art at glorious full size. (For a SNEAK PREVIEW, click here.)


Avengers John Byrne Omnibus, Marvel. Byrne’s ’90s runs on Avengers and Avengers West Coast, very good stuff and often overlooked.


Hawkeye and the Thunderbolts TPB Vol. 2, Marvel. More great Hawkeye and T-Bolts tales from Busiek, Bagley and Nicieza.



Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Aquaman #2, DC. Some good ol’ Aquaman vs. Black Manta action from Dan Abnett and Brad Walker. Gotta tell you, it’s fun getting this twice a month.


Moon Knight #4, Marvel. One of the best books Marvel is putting out right now. No surprise when the primary creative team is Jeff Lemire, Greg Smallwood and Jordie Bellaire.


Silver Surfer, #5, Marvel. Not one of the best — the best book Marvel is putting out right now. Dan Slott and Mike and Laura Allred deserve all the credit they’ve been getting. Fingers crossed on the Eisners … (Click here for a SNEAK PREVIEW.)

Future Quest #2, DC. When Issue #1 came out, I mentioned that I was never a huge fan of Hanna-Barbera’s adventure characters. But that first issue by the perfect pairing of Jeff Parker and Doc Shaner was a real pip. Still, wouldn’t you love these guys on Superman?


Civil War II: Kingpin #1, Marvel. Marvel’s meanest gets the spotlight in this mini from Matthew Rosenberg and Ricardo Lopez Ortiz.


Lone Ranger/Green Hornet #1, Dynamite. The two relatives/heroes finally meet. Batfan extraordinaire Michael Uslan teams with Giovanni Timpano to tell a tale that has me just curious enough to try out.


Weird Love #13, Yoe Comics/IDW. Not just because I’m blurbed on the cover. It’s because this comic never fails to crack me up whenever it comes out. LOVE IT. (Click here for a SNEAK PREVIEW.)

Superman: The Coming of the Supermen #6, DC. The final issue. I’m gonna miss this Neal Adams project when it’s over.


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.
