Scott and Dan pick the comics they’re most looking forward to this week …
Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension
Justice League #9, DC. Justice League under Scott Snyder and co. has been more vibrant than it has in years. In this issue, Batman and Superman argue about how to put the moon back where it was. Mm-hmm. Art by Jorge Jimenez and Alejandro Sanchez.
What If? Spider-Man #1, Marvel. Marvel is bringing back What If? in October as a series of one-shots. In this issue, Spidey legend Gerry Conway returns to the web-slinger’s world with What If Flash Thompson Became Spider-Man? Art by Diego Olortegui and Chris O’Halloran. (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK.)
True Believers, Marvel. Marvel is also publishing a bunch of What If? dollar reprints this month as part of its True Believers series, starting with these two:
Batman #56, DC. Nightwing’s wounded and Batman goes after the KGBeast. Nastiness shall almost certainly ensue. By Tom King with art by Tony Daniel, Danny Miki and Tomeu Morey.
Scott Tipton, co-owner, Blastoff Comics, North Hollywood, Calif.
Swamp Thing: The Bronze Age Vol. 1 TPB, DC Comics. Check out the early days of Swamp Thing, from the great Len Wein and Bernie Wrightson!
Marilyn’s Monsters, Humanoids. This looks intriguing — Norma Jean Baker takes on monsters, metaphorical and otherwise — and so far Humanoids’ new Life Drawn imprint has been consistently strong. By Tommy Redolfi.
Superior Octopus #1, Marvel. I loved the Superior Spider-Man run a while back, so I’ll give this Spider-Geddon tie-in a try. By Christos Gage, Mike Hawthorne, Wade von Grawbadger, Jordie Bellaire and co.

Re: JLA – good guys fighting bad guys in outer space is always fun because battle in the building environments (eyes rolling) is becoming a bit liability…
