HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Wonder Woman #750, DC. It’s not just a landmark issue with a team of all-star creators, it’s the start of a new timeline with the Amazing Amazon established as the DCU’s first superhero, in a story by Scott Snyder and Bryan Hitch. This Jenny Frison 1950s tribute is my fave of the issue’s decade variant covers.

Fantastic Four #18, Marvel. Dan Slott and a team of artists, including Paco Medina and Carlos Magno, revamp the FF’s origin in sure-to-be-controversial fashion. (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK.)

Superman #19, DC. It’s the fallout from Superman’s worldwide revelation that he’s been hiding among Earthlings as Clark Kent. By Bendis, Reis, et al.

Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever – What If…? #1, Archie. Archie borrows a page from the Marvel handbook with a series of alternate scenarios, such as what if Betty was the snobby one while Veronica was the girl next door? Or what if Archie had a twin? By Bill Golliher, Rich Koslowski and Dan Parent.

True Believers, Marvel. Two more dollar reprints connected to all this Ravencroft business.

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

A Letter to Jo, Top Shelf. Writer Joseph Sieracki tells the story of his grandfather’s WWII experiences, directly from his ancestor’s own words in a letter to the woman he would marry, as visually realized by artist Kelly Williams. It’s both beautiful and terrifying, and not to be missed.

Guardians of the Galaxy #1, Marvel. I’m tempted to pick this up just to see Rocket Raccoon’s new Don Johnson suit. By Al Ewing and Juann Cabal.

Justice League International Book One: Born Again, DC Comics. There will never be a time I can’t recommend any re-release of one of the best versions of the Justice League to ever see print. From the rubble of Crisis came Justice League International by Keith Giffen, J.M. DeMatteis and Kevin Maguire! Get in on the ground floor here, and enjoy.
