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.

Super Powers! #1, DC Comics. The Tiny Titans team of Art Baltazar and Franco is back! Always loved these DC kids’ comics.


John Byrne’s Stowaway to the Stars Graphic Album to Color TPB, IDW Publishing. This new “adult coloring book” features some of the most beautiful fantasy art from Mr. Byrne in years.


Sachs & Violens TPB, IDW Publishing. One of my favorite books from the 1990s is back in print! Peter David and George Perez with a sexy, noirish crime offering.


Captain Marvel by Jim Starlin TPB Complete Collection, Marvel. Primo 1970s Marvel cosmic goodness!


Harvey Bullock action figure, DC Collectibles. There are a few other great Batman: The Animated Series figures out over the next few weeks, but come on – who’da thunk we’d ever get a Harvey Bullock figure?


Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Sweet Tooth Deluxe Edition Vol. 3, Vertigo. I’ve never really written about Sweet Tooth, largely because the series ended just months before 13th Dimension launched. But it’s an unsettling, brilliant and heartfelt story by a writer and artist who’s one of my favorites working today. Jeff Lemire is amazingly prolific but I have a hunch that when all is said and done, this and Essex County will still be his masterpieces.


Cage #2, Marvel. Genndy Tartakovsky’s love letter to Luke Cage and ’70s blaxploitation films is back. Issue #1 was a little thin storywise. But that’s cool. This is more about style and sizzle anyway.


Peanuts, Fantagraphics. Celebrate this year’s airing of A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving on Wednesday night with a trove of Peanuts collections released the same day: Complete Peanuts Vol. 25 and 26 (covering 1999-2000) are available together in a hardcover slipcase edition; Complete Peanuts Vol. 26 is also available separately as a hardcover; Complete Peanuts Vol. 6 (1961-1962) is out in trade paperback; Peanuts Every Sunday Vol. 4 (1966-1970) is out in hardcover.  (Oh, and Charles M. Schulz was born 94 years ago this Saturday, 11/26.)


Joker Fish plush figure, DC Collectibles. Little Dan, who in the late ’70s was devoted to Steve Englehart and Marshall Rogers’ Detective Comics run, never imagined that a day would come when he could by himself a Joker Fish stuffed animal. And let’s face it, neither did you. I do like that this is a part of the Super-Pets line — because, really, how is a dead fish poisoned with Joker venom actually a “pet”?
