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 #6, DC. Atom goes big and Hawkman goes small in Part 2 of their adventure in the Microverse. (Click here for an EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW. And click here to check out what writer Robert Venditti has to say about Carter Hall’s past, present – and future.)

The Avengers #700, Marvel. It’s Issue #10 of the current run but #700 in legacy numbering, so it’s celebration time. By Jason Aaron, Ed McGuinness, David Marquez and a cast of thousands.

Mister Miracle #12, DC. Tom King and Mitch Gerads wrap their critically lauded maxi-series.

Uncanny X-Men #1, Marvel. Forget the color coding, the Uncanny X-Men are back – with a new ongoing that kicks off with a 10-part weekly epic. Courtesy of Ed Brisson, Kelly Thompson, Matthew Rosenberg, Mahmud Asrar and the rest of Marvel’s merry mutants.

Superman #5, DC. The enemy of my enemy… Zod enters the picture to deal with Rogol Zaar. By Brian Michael Bendis, Ivan Reis and co.

Wonder Woman #58, DC. The new creative team of G. Willow Wilson and Cary Nord starts here.

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

Firefly #1, Boom! The Firefly comics have been hit-or-miss for me, but I like Greg Pak’s work, so I’ll give this a shot. Art by Dan McDaid and Marcelo Costa.

Dr. Horrible: Best Friends Forever one-shot, Dark Horse. We’re pretty heavy on the Whedon this week, but I can never pass up anything Dr. Horrible. With art by Jose Maria Beroy and Sara Soler.

V for Vendetta 30th Anniversary Deluxe Edition, DC. If you’ve never read this, you owe it to yourself to buy it. If you have read it, buy this new hardcover edition anyway. It’s that good. By Alan Moore and David Lloyd, of course.

Uncle Scrooge and Donald Duck: The Don Rosa Library Vol. 10 — The Old Castle’s Other Secret, Fantagraphics. The 10th and final volume collecting Duck Master Don Rosa’s Uncle Scrooge work. So happy to have all this great material gathered in such beautiful editions.

Hedy Lamarr: An Incredible Life, Humanoids. This biography of the ’40s movie star, inventor and wartime hero looks very intriguing. (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK.)

The Kingdom of the Dwarfs, IDW. Everything you ever wanted to know about the ancient underworld of the dwarfs, in this charming and intricately detailed faux encyclopedia, by Robb Walsh and Dave Wenzel. Highly recommended, especially for D&D or Tolkien fans.
