HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

The Comic Book History of Animation #5, IDW. The final issue of Fred “He writes for 13th Dimension too!” Van Lente and Ryan Dunlavey’s excellent exploration of the world of animation. This issue dives into anime!

The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #2, DC. I dug the first issue and all its callbacks to Batman history. In this issue, the Joker makes the scene. By Sholly Fisch and Randy Elliott.

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

Bandette Vol. 3: The House of the Green Mask, Dark Horse. A very enjoyable and underrated series by Paul Tobin and Colleen Coover. Someday some animation studio is going to adapt this and make a mint.

The Avengers Epic Collection: The Final Threat, Marvel. Scripts by Conway and Shooter, art by Perez, Byrne and Starlin, the returns of Wonder Man and Ant-Man, battles with Attuma, Doom and Thanos — this is maybe my all-time favorite Avengers run.

Fantastic Four by Jonathan Hickman Complete Collection Vol. 3, Marvel. I thought Hickman’s run on FF was one of the best, up there with Lee/Kirby, Byrne and Waid/Wieringo. I especially liked this period, when Spidey was filling in for the thought-to-be-dead Johnny Storm.
