Scott and Dan pick the comics they’re most looking forward to…
Scott Tipton, contributor-at-large, 13th Dimension
GI JOE: A Real American Hero #273, IDW. GI JOE legend Larry Hama has been telling his epic Snake Hunt storyline for almost a year, and it’s rapidly building to a climax, with practically every character Hama has ever created making a return appearance. It’s nuts and I love it. Get in on it before it’s done. Art by Robert Atkins.
Ragnarok: The Breaking of Helheim #6, IDW. Walt Simonson finishes up the current chapter of his new deep dive into the Norse legends of Thor and Asgard. Walt’s love for this material oozes from every gorgeous page.
Maestro: Future Imperfect: Marvel Tales #1, Marvel. I think Peter David and George Perez’s Future Imperfect is one of those overlooked classics: Their clever reversal of The Terminator, with the Hulk being brought to the future apocalypse to face his older despotic self, is one of my favorite books of the ’90s. Glad to see it back in print, and so affordable at $7.99. (Click here for an SNEAK PEEK.)
Solomon Kane: The Original Marvel Years Omnibus, Marvel. I don’t know what it was, but something about the Solomon Kane comics really creeped me out as a little kid. I’m looking forward to going back today and finding out why.
Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension
Conan the Barbarian Epic Collection: The Coming of Conan, Marvel. Roy Thomas and Barry Windsor-Smith’s groundbreaking introduction of Conan to Marvel begins here. One of the Bronze Age’s greatest classics.
Batman #96, DC. One of the few modern comics I’m still reading – because it’s Batman. Gotta keep up with what the kids are doing these days, y’know?

I’m the most hyped for the latest “Batman” comic.
