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.

Mickey Mouse Shorts: Season 1 #3, IDW Publishing. More adaptations of Paul Rudish’s Mickey Mouse cartoons, dialogued by yours truly and Disney historian (and fellow UCSB Gaucho) David Gerstein!


New Mutants: Bill Sienkiewicz Marvel Artist Select HC, IDW Publishing. For my money, some of the absolute best comics of the 1980s. The Claremont and Sienkiewicz run on New Mutants is legendary, and IDW has collected it here in a beautiful hardcover.


Revolution #1, IDW Publishing. The big IDW/Hasbro crossover begins! This looks fun, and I can’t pass up this Byrne Marvel Universe tribute cover.


ROM #3, IDW Publishing. I am digging the revitalized ROM, and this cover from J.K. Woodward is fantastic.


ROM: Revolution #1, IDW Publishing. My Seven-Per-Cent collaborator Ron Joseph joins IDW’s Revolution event here, under a cover from Rob Liefeld!


Captain America Epic Collection: The Coming of … the Falcon TPB, Marvel. Cap stories by Jack Kirby and Jim Steranko, plus the debut of the Falcon? How can you go wrong?


Captain America: Serpents Unite TPB, Marvel. I love me some Serpent Society. By creators including Mark Gruenwald, Steve Englehart, Sal Buscema and Paul Neary.


Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Black Hammer #3, Dark Horse. It’d be easy to call this yet another deconstruction of the Silver Age but Jeff Lemire infuses everything he does with heart and so Black Hammer stands out. Interesting art by Dean Ormston (with Dave Stewart colors) too.


Superman #7, DC. Dear lapsed Superman fans: It’s safe to come back. The Man of Steel is in good hands with Peter J. Tomasi and Patrick Gleason. (Art this issue by Jorge Jimenez.)


Wonder Woman ’77 Special #4, DC. Can’t miss this latest collection of the digital-first Lynda Carter Wonder-tales. It’s an anthology written by Amanda Deibert, Trina Robbins, Amy Chu and Mark Andreyko, with art by Christian Duce Fernandez, Tess Fowler, Dario Brizuela and Tom Derenick. Cool cover by Cat Staggs!


Star Trek: New Visions #12, IDW. John Byrne’s latest photo-comic seems like an Original Timeline take on Star Trek Beyond. I could be completely wrong, but I intend to find out either way because I dig these books.


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