HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

Scott and Dan pick the comics they’re most looking forward to…

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Batman: Universe #3, DC. The Brave and the Boldish mini by Brian Michael Bendis – first seen in the Walmart Batman Giant series – is a real kick. Nifty art by Nick Derington.

Wonder Twins #7, DC. The funniest mainstream title in comics was supposed to be a 6-issue series but it’s been extended to a 12-issue run. Mark Russell and Stephen Byrne’s new arc starts here.

Young Justice #8, DC. So, OK. We were supposed to have gotten Tim Drake’s new hero identity by now. But we haven’t. This issue gives us another tease. Maybe. Kind of. Sigh. Hard to say. Either way, Bendis and John Timms continue the jaunt to the always awesome Earth-3.

Silver Surfer: Black #4, Marvel. Artist Tradd Moore’s an Eisner contender, man. (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK at the issue.)

Scott Tipton, contributor-at-large, 13th Dimension

Mystery Science Theater 3000 TPB, Dark Horse. Joel Hodgson and company did a great job translating MST3K to comics for the first time, keeping the show’s razor wit and its central concept. Greatly enjoyed it.

Marvel Masterworks: The Incredible Hulk Vol. 13, Marvel. Some primo 1970s Hulk tales herein from the likes of Len Wein, Sal Buscema, Ernie Chan and Jim Starlin. Plus, the character with the most difficult-to-draw costume in comics — Jack of Hearts!

X-Men by Roy Thomas & Neal Adams Gallery Edition HC, Marvel. I’ve always thought Thomas and Adams’ run just before the series was cancelled was a much underrated and overlooked period in X-Men history. Big concepts like Sauron and the Savage Land were introduced, and Adams’ new costumes and innovative layouts gave the book a striking new vitality.
