HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Robin & Batman #1, DC. For many years, I’ve wanted an ongoing that explores Batman and Robin’s early years from a modern perspective. This three-ish mini is the closest we’ve come in a long time and the great news is that Jeff Lemire – one of modern comics’ most gifted and sensitive writers – is on the job, with art by his sometime collaborator Dustin Nguyen.

The Batman & Scooby-Doo Mysteries #8, DC. This series is always a good time – and this time around Batman and the kids investigate one of those pesky abandoned warehouses that seem to be all over Gotham. All signs – and the cover – point to the Joker and Harley Quinn.

The Death of Captain Marvel Gallery Edition HC, Marvel. This seminal work has been reprinted many times over but now it’s getting the Gallery Edition treatment – which means the book’s dimensions are slightly smaller than a classic treasury edition. Which means it’s big! Includes several other key Captain Marvel stories, as well.

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

The Thing #1, Marvel. I’m a sucker for Ben Grimm, so every time Marvel decides to give him a solo series, I’m in. (Dan adds: And this one’s written by the great Walter Mosley! Art by Tom Reilly.)

Fantastic Four No. 1 Panel by Panel, Abrams ComicArts. This microexamination of the beginning of the Marvel Age of Comics by graphic designer Chip Kidd intrigues me. Will have to check it out.

Harley Quinn the Animated Series: The Eat. Bang! Kill. Tour #3, DC Comics. Loving this book. Holding me over till Season 3 finally arrives.
