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.

Scooby-Doo Team-Up #19, DC. A Zatanna/Scooby-Doo team-up? Sold!


Vigilante: Southland #1, DC. A new take on DC’s Vigilante, with art by my longtime collaborator Elena Casagrande. Very much looking forward to this.


Cerebus Cover Art Treasury HC, IDW Publishing. This big deluxe collection of Dave Sim and Gerhard’s cover work has been long in the making. It should be a beautiful book. (Note from Dan: It is. Click here for a preview.)


Art Of Atari HC, Dynamite. Nobody had better package art than the Atari of the 1970s. For old 8-bit guys like me, this book is a dream come true.


Doctor Strange: What Is It That Disturbs You Stephen? TPB, Marvel. P. Craig Russell’s landmark Dr. Strange graphic novel, finally back in print!


Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Flash #9, DC. I’ve been hot and cold on Rebirth Flash. The characterizations are fine but I am really weary of speedster vs. speedster conflict. Too many speedsters spoil what makes the Flash special, y’know? That said, I am really looking forward to this issue when the Wallys West finally meet. By Joshua Williamson, artist Jorge Corona and colorist Ivan Plascencia. (For a preview, click here.)


Teen Titans #1, DC. The new series begins in earnest. The Rebirth issue was all set-up, so now we get story — and Damian’s in charge. By Ben Percy, colorist Jim Charalampidis and the already-departing artist Jonboy Meyers.


Titans #4, DC. The other Titans book is out this week too. I’ve dug Dan Abnett’s work on the Titans. He has a good feel for Dick, Donna, Roy, et al, picking up relationship threads that go back decades. One of my favorite DC books right now.


Goodnight Batcave, DC/Mad. Writer Dave Croatto and artist Tom Richmond riff on the children’s bedtime classic Goodnight Moon. Are you listening, Eisner??


Silver Surfer #7, Marvel. Norrin and Dawn are zipping around the spaceways once again and it looks fun as hell. By Dan Slott and the Allreds. (Click here for a preview.)
