HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Future State: The Next Batman #1, DC. Whether you’re into DC’s Future State event or not, it is a kick that one of the most obscure characters in Bat-history – Lucius Fox’s troubled son Tim, who appeared in a few issues in the late ‘70s during Len Wein’s superb run — is the “next Batman” in this particular timeline.

The Amazing Spider-Man Epic Collection: The Goblin’s Last Stand, Marvel. Marvel’s got a lot of collections this week but topping them off is the re-release of The Goblin’s Last Stand, which features some of the greatest Spidey stories ever – Issues #105 to #123, including the death of Gwen Stacy.

Scott adds: Probably the most famous and impactful Spider-Man tale ever told, the death of Gwen Stacy remains as shocking and tragic as the day it was published.

Wonder Woman by George Perez Vol. 5, DC. Some of the best-known work of Perez’s storied run, including Chalk Drawings, with co-writer Mindy Newell and artist Jill Thompson. Collects Wonder Woman #46-57.

The Eternals by Jack Kirby Monster-Size HC, Marvel. A new Eternals series starts this week, the movie’s off in the distance and Marvel’s been reprint happy. This editions collects the original 19 issues plus an annual – but in gigantic, Artist’s Edition size. Shouldn’t all of Kirby’s work be shown off this way?

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

Avengers West Coast Epic Collection: How the West Was Won, Marvel. The early days of my favorite Avengers team, Hawkeye’s West Coast Avengers! The debut miniseries by Roger Stern and Bob Hall is particularly good.

The Incredible Hulk Epic Collection: Who Will Judge the Hulk?, Marvel. Four hundred pages of Herb Trimpe’s classic 1970s Hulk, including the second appearance of Harlan Ellison’s Jarella!
