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

Mister Miracle #5, DC. Over here I wrote about the wonderful job Tom King is doing on Batman. What are the odds he’ll be competing with himself come Eisner time? This series — with art by Mitch Gerads — has been outstanding.

Action Comics #993, DC. Booster’s here! That means things will get messed up right away quick. But it’ll be fun while it happens. By Dan Jurgens, Joe Prado, Cam Smith and Hi-Fi.

Marvel Comics Digest #4: The X-Men, Marvel/Archie. Lotta Kirby in this one. (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK.)

Archie Christmas Spectacular #1, Archie. This is just nice. Bring me some egg nog and three straws, please.

Die Kitty Die: Christmas Special #1, Chapterhouse. This is just naughty. Bring me some spiked egg nog and three Wild Turkey chasers, please.

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

Astro City Reflections TPB, Vertigo. Comic-book series come and go, but Kurt Busiek, Brent Anderson and Alex Ross’ Astro City is still offering beautifully told stories, reliable as the tide. Always worth buying.

DC Universe by John Byrne HC, DC Comics. A great selection of Byrne DC stories — everything from Hawkman to the Atom to the Outsiders.

Dark Avengers by Brian Michael Bendis: Complete Collection, Marvel. I remember being so skeptical of this when it came out, but man, was I wrong. Just the scene of Norman Osborn seducing the Sentry with Five Guys burgers and fries is worth the price of admission.
