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

The Terrifics #4, DC. Doc Shaner takes over pencilling duties, moving this title written by the always excellent Jeff Lemire right to the top of the week’s reading pile.

Invincible Iron Man #600, Marvel. And that’s a wrap for Brian Michael Bendis. Along for the going-away party are Alex Maleev, David Marquez, Mike Deodato Jr., Mark Bagley, Stefano Caselli, Leinil Francis Yu and Daniel Acuna, among others. Oh, and Tony, Riri and Doctor Doom are here too!

Super Sons #16, DC. The final issue clears the decks for Brian Michael Bendis’ Super-takeover next week. (Next week!) Gonna miss Peter Tomasi’s take on these kids. With art by Carlo Barberi, Art Thibert and crew. (UPDATED: And, hey wouldn’t you know it: The boys will be back with a new series this August called Adventures of the Super Sons, by Tomasi, Barberi and Thibert. Click here for Paste Magazine’s scoop.)

The Flash #47, DC. I don’t actually believe the idea that Barry Allen and OG Wally West would engage in a “Flash War” but that’s OK. I’m for anything that could clarify where things stand for the original Kid Flash. By Joshua Williamson, Howard Porter, Hi-Fi and co.

Black Panther #1, Marvel. Black Panther goes cosmic, with the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda, by Ta-Nehisi Coates and Daniel Acuna. I’m trying most of Marvel’s #1s this summer — even though this is really just Coates’ latest arc.

Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor #1, Marvel. Jim Zub and Thony Silas take the search for Not as Old Man Logan to that noted hive of scum and villainy.

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

Coin-Op Comics Anthology: 1997-2017 HC, Top Shelf. Not my normal cup of tea, I know. Funny, sad, wistful and thought-provoking comics and prose by siblings Peter and Maria Hoey, on all manner of subjects. A wonderful surprise that’s become one of my favorites.

Star Trek: The Next Generation — Through the Mirror #4, IDW Publishing. Mirror Picard’s evil scheme is revealed! By the usual suspects (David Tipton, J.K. Woodward and myself) — and introducing the amazing art of Carlos Nieto!

Scooby-Doo Team-Up #38, DC Comics. So I have a weakness for the Blue Falcon and Dynomutt. Don’t judge me. (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK.)
