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.

The Fall and Rise of Captain Atom #1, DC Comics. Not only is it great to see Captain Atom back, but this also marks the return to comics of his 1980s scribe Cary Bates. I’m intrigued. Co-written with animation maven Greg Weisman, with art by Will Conrad and colorist Ivan Nunes.

Chris Samnee’s Daredevil Artist’s Edition, IDW Publishing. This two-book slipcase edition collects not just Samnee’s original DD pages, but also Mark Waid’s scripts, marked up with Samnee’s initial sketches. It’s a gorgeous package. (Dan not only concurs, but check out the EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW, here.)

Incredible Hulk Epic Collection: Future Imperfect TPB, Marvel. Collecting the high point of Peter David’s 10-year Hulk run, including the classic “Future Imperfect” collaboration with George Perez. A must-have.

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Justice League of America: The Atom Rebirth, DC. I’m of a mind that the Atom should always be active in the DC Universe. He’s too much fun not to be. I’m not fan of the helmet and Iron Mannish outfit but I’ll take what I can get. One of four one-shots this month featuring characters who will be in the new Justice League of America title. By Steve Orlando, Andy MacDonald and John Rauch.

Death of Hawkman #4, DC. If I’m going to pick the Atom, then I have to pick Hawkman, right? Speaking of helmets, am I the only one who prefers Adam Strange’s dorky old-school version to the new one with the visor? By Marc Andreyko, Aaron Lopresti, Rodney Buchemi, John Livesay, Norm Rapmund, Sean Parsons and Blond.

Superman #14, DC. I am a sucker for multiverse stories. There are Supermen aplenty in this one — and I’m guessing there will be plenty of DCU vs. Watchmen Easter eggs in this arc, too. Can’t wait. By the way, can we get a Sunshine Superman miniseries? Please? By Peter J. Tomasi, Patrick Gleason, Ivan Reis, Joe Prado and Marcelo Maiolo.

Old Man Logan #16, Marvel. Consistently strong issue after issue. By Jeff Lemire, Andrea Sorrentino and Marcelo Maiolo.
