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

Booster Gold: Future Lost, DC Comics. The concluding collection of Dan Jurgens’ original series introducing Booster to the DC Universe. Just fun, entertaining comics.
The Spectre: The Wrath of the Spectre Omnibus, DC. These classic Bronze Age tales of the Spectre by Michael Fleisher and Jim Aparo are legendary, with Jim Corrigan’s ghost meting out horrific punishments to the guilty. Certainly the most striking and controversial appearances of the character.
Black Widow #1, Marvel. Having been delayed by the pandemic, I’m very excited to finally see the launch of this new, much-talked about Black Widow series from Kelly Thompson and my longtime partner-in-crime Elena Casagrande! Not to be missed!
Black Widow Strikes Omnibus, Marvel. And now that you’re in a Black Widow mood, pick up this amazing omnibus that collects everything from her original Avengers appearances to her co-starring run in Daredevil to her solo run in Marvel Fanfare, and everything in between. Gee, you’d think she had a movie coming out or something.
Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension
Dollar Comics, DC. There are two this week – Grant Morrison’s prose Batman #663 and Ed Brubaker and Darwyn Cooke’s Catwoman #1. Now, unlike Marvel, which is keeping its Facsimile Edition and True Believers lines alive, DC has really pulled back on its FEs and Dollar Comics during the pandemic and company’s upheaval. So if you want them to return in full, vote with your wallet and spend two bucks on these. Lines like this should live forever.
Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters Saga Omnibus Vol. 1, DC. Mike Grell’s GA magnum opus: This edition collects Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters #1-3, Green Arrow #1-50 and a story from Secret Origins #38.
True Believers, Marvel. Three this week – all X-related. As I noted above, vote with your dollars.

So many great collections coming out. I need that Booster Gold for sure, even if I haven’t gotten around to reading the first yet. And how can you pass up Perez Black Widow comics?
