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.

Jem & The Holograms: Infinite #1, IDW Publishing. The Jem franchise leaps full-on into science-fiction with this new dimension-hopping miniseries. If you’ve been passing on Jem and its sister book The Misfits, this is a great place to start, with some of the best writing and art around. Highly recommended. By Kelly Thompson and Stacey Lee.

Star Trek: TNG — Mirror Broken #2 , IDW Publishing. The plot thickens as Picard’s plans to steal the Enterprise begin to take form, but there’s one man potentially standing in his way: William T. Riker! Illustrated by the amazing J.K. Woodward, with stellar scripting by David Tipton and some other guy. (Note: He means himself. — Dan)

Tom Tomorrow: 25 Years of Tomorrow HC, IDW Publishing. I’ve always been a huge fan of the bitingly satirical This Modern World, so this gigantic hardcover composed of all of Dan Perkins’ cartoons is a real treat.

Walter Simonson’s The Mighty Thor: The Return Of Beta Ray Bill Artist’s Edition, IDW Publishing. More of Simonson’s Beta Ray Bill and Thor original pages? I’ll take all of that you got. (Click here for a gigantic EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW, including a look at 13 specially selected pages.)

Fantastic Four Epic Collection Vol. 2: The Master Plan of Doctor Doom, Marvel. More the early, magical days of Stan Lee/Jack Kirby Fantastic Four, including the origin of Doctor Doom and Annuals 1 and 2! Gotta have it.

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

The Flash #25, DC. Yeah, this is the good stuff. Reverse-Flash is my favorite Flash villain and the new storyline speeds off in earnest. By Joshua Williamson and Carmine Di Giandomenico, Ryan Sook and Neil Googe.

True Believers, Marvel. The House of Ideas continues its run of dollar reprints of famous issues with three this week: Amazing Spider-Man #1, Spider-Man #1 and Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #1. Gotta get am all!

Wonder Woman #25, DC. Greg Rucka calls it another run, pulling the threads from the last year together. With art by Liam Sharp and Bilquis Evely.
