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

Hawkman #5, DC. Hawkman and the Atom – together again! Carter’s been on a quest across time and space and Ray may be able to help him find the answers he’s looking for. By Robert Venditti, Bryan Hitch and crew. (Wanna know what Venditti says about Hawkman and the Atom’s reunion? You do. Click here.)

The Wrong Earth #2, AHOY Comics. Grim-and-gritty Dragonfly comes face to face with his dead sidekick – who’s very much alive on Earth-Alpha. Meanwhile, on Earth-Omega, shiny, upbeat Dragonflyman is startled to have to fight… cops! By Tom Peyer, Jamal Igle, et al. (Click here for an EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW.)

The Avengers #9, Marvel. Namor may not have his own solo book but at least he’s been popping up. He takes on the Avengers here. By writer Jason Aaron, David Marquez and Justin Ponsor.

Spider-Geddon #1, Marvel. My lord, that’s a lot of Spideys! Christos Gage, Dan Slott, Jorge Molina and co. bring you the epic sequel to Spider-Verse.

True Believers, Marvel. Two more What If? dollar reprints!

Mike Grell: Life Is Drawing Without an Eraser, TwoMorrows. This lavishly illustrated edition, by Dewey Cassell with Jeff Messer, centers on a book-length interview with the fan-fave artist, covering his decades in the biz. (We’re serializing excerpts and you can find the first one – about the Legion – by clicking here.)

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

Pogo Vol. 5: Out of This World at Home, Fantagraphics. All of the daily strips from 1957 and 1958 from the master Walt Kelly, including the Sundays in full color reprinted for the first time ever!

From Hell Master Edition #1, IDW Publishing/Top Shelf. Have you somehow missed out on Alan Moore and Eddie Campbell’s classic work exploring the notorious Jack the Ripper? Get in on the ground floor, as the series is re-presented for the first time in full color, along with all of the original annotations!

The Jekyll Island Chronicles Book 2: A Devil’s Reach, IDW Publishing/Top Shelf. I only recently discovered Jekyll Island Chronicles, and it completely pulled me in. Think an American steampunk League of Extraordinary Gentlemen. By Steve Nedvidek, Ed Crowell, Jack Lowe and Moses Nester.

Marvel Masterworks Invincible Iron Man Vol. 11 HC, Marvel. Ah, the Iron Man stories of my youth. I especially love the Iron Man/Champions vs. MODOK tale included herein.

Quasar: Cosmos in Collision, Marvel. Mark Gruenwald’s early ’90s run on Quasar is a sweet forgotten little gem of Marvel cosmic goodness. Highly recommended.
