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.

Lady Killer 2 #2 , Dark Horse. Still loving Joelle Jones’ bloody retro romp.


Doom Patrol #1, DC. Writer Gerard Way has said how inspired he was by Grant Morrison’s classic run, so if we can get even half of that insanity here, this should be interesting. Art by Nick Derington.


Star Trek: 50 Artists, 50 Years, Titan. This beautiful hardcover art book contains 50 all-new pieces celebrating the 50th anniversary of Star Trek. A must-have.


Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Briggs Land #2, Dark Horse. I liked Issue #1, though it was (understandably) heavy on exposition. I’m interested enough to see where this is going, what with all the moral ambiguity going around. It’s another timely socio-political drama by Brian Wood, with art by Mack Chater and Lee Loughridge…


Mockingbird #7, Marvel. I want Chelsea Cain and Kate Niemczyk (and their cohorts like Sean Parsons and Rachelle Rosenberg) to keep making this comic forever.


It’s a heavy DC week but I’ll keep this to just a few …

Action Comics #963, DC. We’re gonna start getting answers with all this Human Clark Kent business. I still think it’s this guy. By Dan Jurgens and Patrick Zircher.


New Super-Man #3, DC. I really like this comic. A lot. It’s got a light tone that I didn’t expect at all. But then it’s got Gene Luen Yang, one of comics’ best writers, at the helm, so it’s no surprise how entertaining this is. Art by Viktor Bogdanovic and Richard Friend.


Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #4, DC. Man, I hate having to type that title out. Good comic by Robert Venditti (with art this time by Ethan Van Sciver), though. It’s nice seeing Hal Jordan be Hal Jordan again.


Superwoman #2, DC. Phil Jimenez’s first issue was packed, complete with a twist ending. I admit I went into this wondering why we needed a Superwoman title but I’m really looking forward to finding out what happens next.


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