HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Strange week. Scott and I have the same lists. So here’s Scott:

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

Superman & Batman: Generations Omnibus HC, DC. I remember these John Byrne-created tales of the Wayne and Kent families across the decades with great fondness. Looking forward to a re-read.

Captain America Epic Collection: Captain America Lives Again, Marvel. The original Silver Age Captain America solo stories by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby are some good reading, especially when the Red Skull and the Cosmic Cube get involved.

X-Men Epic Collection: The Fate of the Phoenix, Marvel. Whenever someone asks you why anybody cares about the X-Men in any form, be it comics, TV or film, you just hand them this book. ‘Nuff said.

  1. I have the Dark Phoenix Saga in so many forms, already, and I’m STILL tempted to buy this one.

  2. Generations is the hardcover I have on my list.

  3. I already have all the available CAPTAIN AMERICA EPIC COLLECTIONS so I can skip this one.

    I will definitely be picking up the X-MEN volume to replace my black & white essential edition. I don’t usually do that, but I will make an exception for these stories. One of the things I love about the All-New, All-Different X-Men as designed by the great Dave Cockrum is they are as brightly colorful as a bag of skittles! This was a big selling point for me when I first discovered them way back in ’76. It is also the thing that frustrates the hick out of me when I watch the X-Men movies with their black leather costumes. The actors are great, but the dark, colorless look of the films leaves me cold. What can I say? I’m a Silver & Bronze Age comics fan and an old-school Trekkie. So I like my heroes to wear colorful costumes.

    Can’t wait to add “The Fate of the Phoenix” to my already overcrowded bookshelf.
