HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

Big week for DC…

Scott Tipton usually joins me for the HOT PICKS but this week I’m a solo act what with Christmas and whatnot:

Harley’s Little Black Book #5, DC. Neal Adams joins with Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner in a send-up of the classic Superman vs. Muhammad Ali. (And, hey check out some of the original art at the Neal Adams Gallery. Click here.)

Dark Knight III #7, DC. Holy crap, this has been coming out for a year now and we still have an issue to come after this. Doesn’t matter though. I’ve enjoyed it. Flawed though it’s been, DKIII has been a far more worthy sequel to the original than DK2 was. By Miller/Azzarello/Kubert/Janson, of course.

The Flash #13, DC. Date Night! Barry and Iris — together again for the first time! Plus, Kid Flash gets to cut loose on his own in this Christmas-themed issue. (You can check out the preview, here.) By Joshua Williamson, Neil Googe and Ivan Plascencia.

Action Comics #970, DC. Dan Jurgens and Patrick Zircher explore the “Would you kill Hitler as a baby?” philosophical question with Superman forced to defend Luthor before he can commit genocide in the future (according to a vigilant alien race). It’s pretty much the same theme as Civil War II only more personal and less bombastic. Which is a weird thing to say when you’re dealing with these characters, but there you have it.

A whole bunch of other DC books. This might be the publisher’s best week of the year. It has a ton of comics I’m looking forward to this week, but I can’t pick them all. Here are some others I’ll be checking out: All-Star Batman #5, Batgirl #6, Detective Comics #947, Future Quest #8, Hal Jordan and the Green Lantern Corps #11, Justice League vs. Suicide Squad #2, Scooby-Doo Team-Up #21 (co-starring Harley Quinn), Super Powers! #2, Supergirl: Bring Super #1, Teen Titans #3, Titans #6 and Wonder Woman #13.

Love is Love, IDW/DC. Created in response to the Orlando nightclub massacre, this A-List anthology benefits the Equality Florida Institute. The list of credits is long but the driving force is writer Marc Andreyko.

World of Archie Comics Double Digest #65, Archie. Sometimes you just want to read some old-school Archie.
