Scott and Dan pick the comics they’re most looking forward to…
Scott Tipton, contributor-at-large, 13th Dimension
Loki: Mistress of Mischief, Marvel. If you’re enjoying LOKI on Disney Plus, this would be a perfect time to spend a little more time with Lady Loki.
Mighty Marvel Masterworks Fantastic Four Vol. 1, Marvel. The first 10 issues of Lee and Kirby’s landmark Fantastic Four, in a full-color, softcover, super-affordable format! ($15.99 — and yes, there’s also a cover that features FF #1.)
Squadron Supreme vs. Avengers, Marvel. Always a big fan of Marvel’s ersatz JLA known as the Squadron Supreme, especially when they’re clashing with the Avengers. Now the best of those meetings are collected in a single volume!
Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension
Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #4, DC. Y’know what I like about this cover? It feels like an homage to the late-’60s/early ’70s Detective logo that would feature our heroes flanking the banner.
See what I mean?
Captain America: The First 80 Years, Titan. A celebratory mag featuring “covers, comic art, behind-the-scenes facts and information about the authors and artists who brought the legend to life!” There are four covers to choose from. This is my pick:
One:12 Collective Dr. Fate, Mezco. This is one of Mezco’s nicest yet from the 6-inch line. Got $95? It’s yours.

That “Batman/Scooby-Doo” cover is a lovely homage.
