HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

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

The Green Lantern: Season Two Vol.1, DC. I’ve been meaning to catch up with Grant Morrison’s reboot of the Green Lantern Corps for a while now. (Dan adds: It’s terrific – including the art by Liam Sharp.)

Incredible Hulk Epic Collection: Going Gray, Marvel. Collected within is the brief but amazing John Byrne run on Incredible Hulk, which included an absolutely amazing Avengers vs. Hulk slugfest. Very much looking forward to re-reading these.

The Eternals Complete Saga Omnibus, Marvel. I have tried and tried over the years to get into Jack Kirby’s The Eternals, but have never quite been able to get my head around it.  With the movie on the horizon, I’m thinking it’s time I gave it one more shot.

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Back Issue #124, TwoMorrows. The Horrific Heroes issue! (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK.)

DC Classics: The Batman Adventures #7, DC. Another $2 reprint featuring the classic BTAS work of Kelley Puckett, Mike Parobeck and Rick Burchett.

Batman Enigma #1. I don’t normally put fan comics in HOT PICKS, but this is such a fun project by Eric Elliott and Ian Miller, part of the same team that created Batman Meets Godzilla. The comic, set in Tim Burton and Michael Keaton’s Batman universe after Batman Returns, is free and you can download it here. (Click here for a SNEAK PEEK.)

  1. I’m super-excited to get that Incredible Hulk Epic Collection! Not for the Byrne issues…’cause I’ve already got those…but for the underrated stories by Al Milgrom. Yes, I’m serious! I was a big fan of Al’s storytelling in the 80s, especially on his great Spectacular Spider-Man run. He doesn’t seem to be a “fan favorite” creator but I really like him as an artist and writer. I never thought I’d be able to pick up these Hulk stories in a nice trade paperback edition, so I’m really happy about this one.

    Now if Marvel would only reprint the early Bill Mantlo Incredible Hulk issues that have never been reprinted it would be just SMASHING!

  2. i wonder if they put in the Byrne Hulk story from Marvel Premiere #28, with every page being a full page panel? that one was epic…

    • It’s in there…only it’s MARVEL FANFARE #29. They place it between Byrne’s final issue and Milgrom’s first. Very cool art and a great twist ending. I almost wish Byrne had continued on the Hulk for at least another year, but that wasn’t meant to be.

      But I’m not complaining ’cause I got a year of Al Milgrom’s Hulk and Byrne moved over to the Distinguished Competition to do my all-time favorite version of Superman!

      This Epic volume also contains an interview with John Byrne from MARVEL AGE #31. The whole book is a great bargain and a wonderful escape back to better days. It gets my highest recommendation.
