HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

Scott and Dan pick the comics they’re most looking forward to this week …

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Dark Nights: Metal #3, DC. Someone asked me the other day what I thought of Metal. I replied, “It’s an intelligently written event comic.” And there you have it. by Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo, of course.

Amazing Spider-Man #789, Marvel. Now, where were we? Peter’s beleaguered and his old costume’s back. Must be Marvel Legacy! OK, I’m ready to go. By Dan Slott and Stuart Immonen.

Justice League of America #16, DC. I know I can’t expect it any time soon but I want an Atom ongoing. But hey, at least we’re getting this Atom-centric arc in JLA, by Steve Orlando and Felipe Watanabe.

Word balloon cover!

Sheena #2, Dynamite. Are you reading Sheena by Marguerite Bennett and Christina Trujillo? You should. Dig Mortitat’s art.

Marvel Comics Digest #3: Thor, Marvel/Archie. Wanna know what’s in it? Lee, Kirby, Wein and Stern, for starters. Click here for the full rundown.

Fighting American, Titan. Simon and Kirby’s other patriotic hero is now also a Man Out of Time: Gordon Rennie and Duke Mighten bring the funhouse-version of Cap into the modern world.

Scott Tipton, co-owner, Blastoff Comics, North Hollywood, Calif.

The Demon by Jack Kirby TPB, DC Comics. The full run of Kirby’s ’70s supernatural classic, collected in trade! A must-have.

The Flash by Mark Waid: Book 3, DC Comics. This series collecting Waid’s landmark run continues, with the debut of Impulse!

Justice League by Giffen & DeMatteis Omnibus Vol. 1 HC, DC Comics. To this day, this is still my favorite Justice League run ever, a sharply written, beautifully drawn mix of comedy and action. The first five years’ worth, all under one cover. (NOTE: Dan concurs.)

Mystery Society Definitive Edition TPB, IDW Publishing. I loved this underrated little gem of a horror family adventure by Steve Niles and Fiona Staples. If you missed it, definitely check it out.


Star Trek: TNG — Mirror Broken #4, IDW Publishing. The fourth issue of my new Mirror TNG series hits stores, featuring the debut of…the Neptunian! (Any old-school Mego fans out there will know what I’m talking about.) Co-written by my brother David. Art by J.K. Woodward.
