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.

Hellboy Winter Special 2017, Dark Horse. Always good to get some Mignola-written Hellboy stories.

Batman: The Bronze Age Omnibus — The Brave and the Bold HC, DC Comics. I normally don’t go for these enormous omnibi just because of the space they take up, but I can’t pass up 900 pages of Haney & Aparo Bat-teamups.

Xena Warrior Princess Omnibus Vol. 1 TPB, Dynamite. This was a really good series; happy to see a big, fat collection.

Batman/TMNT Adventures #3, IDW/DC. What a pleasant surprise this book has been. Check it out. By Matthew K. Manning and Jon Sommariva.

Mickey Mouse Shorts: Season 1 Vol. 1 TPB, IDW Publishing. Hey, I co-wrote this. Maybe give it a look?

Iron Man Epic Collection: By Force of Arms TPB, Marvel. The complete Stan Lee/Gene Colan Iron Man run!

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Kamandi Challenge #1, DC. I’d actually prefer a genuine Kamandi ongoing, but I’ll take what I can get. This 12-issue maxiseries features a different creative team each month, with every issue ending in a cliffhanger that the next crew has to solve (except the last issue, presumably). The whole thing kicks off with writer Dan Abnett, with art by Dale Eaglesham. Plus, there’s a prologue by DC co-publisher Dan DiDio and Keith Giffen. There’s also art by Scott Koblish and covers by Eaglesham, Giffen and Bruce Timm. Got all that? Good. (Also a Scott pick.)

Jack Kirby’s Fantastic Four Artist’s Edition, IDW/Marvel. An extraordinary book. I’ve seen it — and you can check out this EXCLUSIVE 13-page preview, here. (Also a Scott pick.)

Deathstroke #11, DC. Regular writer Christopher Priest is joined by guest artists Denys Cowan and Bill Sienkiewicz for a one-off about gun violence, specifically in Chicago. It also features the return of the Creeper. Check out our interviews with Priest and Cowan here and here. I’ve read the issue and I can tell you it’s excellent.

Batman ’66 Meets Wonder Woman ’77 #1, DC. I’ve reviewed the first part of this issue already since it’s digital-first (click here). But I’ve waited for the rest because to this day I prefer to read comics on paper. By the way, I’m still hoping that DC gets the likeness rights to do Christopher Reeve Superman one of these days. By writers Jeff Parker and Marc Andreyko, penciller David Hahn and inker Karl Kesel. (Also a Scott pick.)

The Flash #15, DC. This Rogues thing by Joshua Williamson is a lot of fun. Pencils by Carmine Di Giandomenico.

Weird Love #16, Yoe Comics/IDW. Always. And you can check out a preview here.

  1. How are the sales on this title ? Since the price increase on this and the other Yoe single issues awhile ago now I dropped them. I still pick up the hard covers.
