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

Superman: Kryptonite Nevermore, DC. Denny O’Neil wasn’t quite able to work the same magic on Superman in 1971 that he did on Batman and Green Lantern, but this new run did introduce some big changes, including the elimination of kryptonite and Clark Kent’s move from newspaper reporter to TV anchor.

Dan adds: I’m glad DC stuck with one of Neal Adams’ greatest images on the cover, even though the interiors were by Curt Swan and Murphy Anderson. Adams claims he doesn’t like it, but the cover of Issue #233 – where this comes from, natch — is downright iconic. Also, I LOVE that the publisher kept the classic, less rounded Superman logo.

Wonder Woman in the Fifties, DC. Very much looking forward to this collection of never-before-reprinted Wonder Woman stories from the period after the creators William Moulton Marston and H.G. Peter had left the series.

Dan adds: Lovely cover by Jenny Frison, which is from her Wonder Woman #750 variant.

Deep Space Nine: Too Long a Sacrifice, IDW Publishing. My sci-fi noir thriller starring DS9’s Constable Odo is now available in trade collection! By David Tipton, Greg Scott and your humble narrator.

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Superman: The Man of Steel Vol. 2, DC. The second hardcover collection of John Byrne’s superb (pun intended) revamp. But Byrne isn’t the only one in Metropolis: Marv Wolfman, Jerry Ordway and Paul Levitz are among those joining him. Collects Action Comics #588-593, Adventures of Superman #429-435, Legion of Super-Heroes #37-38 and Superman #5-11.

One:12 Collective Dr. Zaius Action Figure, Mezco. Can you have too many Dr. Zaius action figures? No, you cannot. This hyper-detailed 6-inch beaut lists for $85.

  1. Your DC picks for the week show just how strong and how timeless their classic material is… too bad about what they’ve produced since then.

  3. The reproduction on the hardcover version of Kyyptonite No More was not good. Hope they cleaned it up for this one

  4. That “squared U” logo used on the Kryptonite Nevermore cover is weird because it’s NOT the original Ira Schnapp logo, it was redone by DC AFTER they did the rounded 1983 tweak. If you look closely, the letters are thicker than the version that stood for four decades. I guess I applaud them respecting the history, but it’s kind of like how every reprint collection has to be “cleaned up” and recolored digitally.

    • Excellent point, Karl. I thought it looked slightly off but I couldn’t put my finger on it.
