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

Heroes in Crisis #1, DC. This book will not be for everybody but I do recommend at least checking out the first issue. The 9-part event by Tom King, Clay Mann, Tomeu Morey and co. details the impact of PTSD on the DCU’s supers amid the carnage of a deadly attack on them.

Spider-Geddon #0, DC. Man, I wish I played video games. Because everyone is talking about the new Spider-Man. In this lead-in to the new comics Spider-Event, the game’s version of everyone’s favorite wall-crawler officially joins the mainstream Marvel multiverse. By Christos Gage and Clayton Crain.

Archie Meets Batman ’66 #3, DC. We’ve been having a lot of fun covering this series, so naturally we’re looking forward to the latest issue by Jeff Parker, Michael Moreci, Dan Parent, J. Bone, Kelly Fitzpatrick and Jack Morelli. (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK.)

Doomsday Clock #7, DC. I admit I don’t like bimonthly books because for the most part, I tend to forget what happened in the previous issue. I have a hunch Doomsday Clock will read better as a single graphic novel, but it kind of doesn’t matter. This slow-going series by Geoff Johns, Gary Frank and crew still has IMPORTANT written all over it. And that sure looks like Alan Scott’s lantern on the cover…

Scooby-Doo Team-Up #42, DC. The gang goes up against the gorillas of the DC Universe. Thanks, Sholly Fisch and Dario Brizuela!

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

Bubba Ho-Tep and the Cosmic Blood-Suckers #3, IDW Publishing. More fantastic Joe Lansdale weirdness from adapters Josh Jabcuga and Tadd Galusha. It’s like nothing else out there.

Star Trek vs. Transformers #1, IDW Publishing. Animated Trek and Animated Transformers! How can you go wrong? By John Barber, Mike Johnson and Philip Murphy.

Avengers Forever TPB, Marvel. One of my all-time favorite Avengers epics, finally back in print! From Kurt Busiek and Carlos Pacheco.

Avengers West Coast Epic Collection: How the West Was Won TPB, Marvel. The origin of the West Coast Avengers! By the likes of Stern, Englehart, Milgrom, et al.

Thor Epic Collection: The Fall of Asgard, Marvel. Silver Age Thor greatness from Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Neal Adams and John Buscema!
