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.

Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Richest Duck in the World, The Don Rosa Library, Vol. 5, Fantagraphics. More great all-ages adventure comics from the modern master of Duck comics.


Jim Thompson’s The Killer Inside Me #1, IDW Publishing. My favorite pulp noir crime novel, brought to comics for the first time. If I don’t get to write this one, I can’t wait to read it. By Devin Faraci and Vic Malhotra.


Future Quest #4, DC Comics. Hopefully people haven’t forgotten about this great all-Hanna-Barbera team-up series. Still very much enjoying it. By Jeff Parker, Doc Shaner, Ron Randall and Hi-Fi.


Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Silver Surfer #6 (aka #200), Marvel. I will recommend this title by Dan Slott and Mike and Laura Allred until the end of time, at which point time will loop back in on itself and I’ll be able to recommend it again until the end of time, at which point time will loop back in on itself and I’ll be able to recommend it again until the end of time, at which point time will … (For a SNEAK PREVIEW, click here.)

All-New Wolverine Annual #1, Marvel. Looks to be a fun anthology for this fun title, by Tom Taylor and Marcio Takara. We get a visit from Spider-Gwen — and solo stories starring Gabby, the World’s Most Dangerous Little Sister, and Jonathan the Wolverine, too. Plus, a neat Reservoir Dogs-inspired cover by Cameron Stewart.

The Pitiful Human-Lizard #9, Chapterhouse. Here’s the thing: I’ve never read Jason Loo’s superhero satire, even if his covers have made our Best VARIANTS feature. But I’ve been meaning to give this Spider-Man riff a try for some time and when it’s a light Fifth Week, you should do yourself (and a lot of writers and artists) a favor and give something different a chance. That’s what I’ll be doing.


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