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

Batman #54, DC. I’ve been saying for some time that DC needs to put out a Batman and Robin: The Early Years ongoing. Something that will give us a modern take on the original Dynamic Duo. C’mon, you’d read that in a heartbeat, wouldn’t you? Anyway, at least we’ve got this: Tom King’s look at Bruce and Dick’s relationship, from then to now, with line art by Matt Wagner. (That’s one of my favorite covers in a long while, by the way. Love it.)

Justice League #7, DC. Have you been enjoying this whole Legion of Doom business as much as I have? This issue has writer Scott Snyder teamed with artists Jim Cheung, Mark Morales and Tomeu Morey.

Captain America #3, Marvel. Cap and Black Panther – by Ta-Nehisi Coates and penciller Leinil Francis Yu. ‘Nuff said.

Super Weird Heroes Vol. 2: Preposterous But True!, Yoe Books/IDW. Another brilliant collection of some of the most bizarre superheroes ever. (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK.)

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

Batman by Jeph Loeb & Tim Sale Omnibus HC, DC Comics. Loeb and Sale are one of my all-time favorite Batman creative teams. This will be a nice collection to have.

Walt Disney’s Donald Duck Vol. 12, The Black Pearls of Tabu Yama, by Carl Barks, Fantagraphics. Another beautiful hardcover full of Carl Barks Duck goodness. Keep’ em coming!

Asgardians of the Galaxy #1, Marvel. I almost have to buy this just for the title pun. But Frog Thor is back too? Sold. (By Cullen Bunn, Matteo Lolli and Federico Blee.)
