Scott and Dan pick the comics they’re most looking forward to this week …
Because of Christmas, new releases have been cut back dramatically this week. I don’t have any picks, so I’ll just turn this over to Scott. — Dan
Scott Tipton, co-owner, Blastoff Comics, North Hollywood, Calif.
Marvel Action Avengers #1, IDW Publishing. From the folks behind the outstanding Batman: The Animated Series/Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series a while back! Looking forward to their take on Avengers. Written by Matthew K. Manning, with art by Jon Sommariva and co.
Superior Spider-Man #1, Marvel. I loved the original Doc-Ock-as-Spidey run, so I’m looking forward to its return. From Christos Gage, Mike Hawthorne, Wade von Grawbadger and crew.
Fantastic Four #5 (aka #650), Marvel. Ah, there’s nothing like a Christmas wedding (even if the groom is Jewish). Let’s hope Marvel doesn’t try and be clever and pull the rug out from under us again like with Peter and Kitty. Nothing wrong with the occasional happy ending. By Dan Slott, Aaron Kuder, Adam Hughes, Mike Allred and the rest of the Marvel wedding party.
