Scott and Dan pick the comics they’re most looking forward to…
Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension
Genius, Isolated: The Life and Art of Alex Toth, IDW. IDW is re-releasing the acclaimed series of books on one of comics’ greatest practitioners, now in paperback. Virtually every artist I’ve spoken to lists Toth as an influence; you can’t go wrong here. By Dean Mullaney and Bruce Canwell.
Scott adds: Very happy to see this marvelous work of comics history made available again in a more affordable softcover edition.
Alex Toth: Bravo for Adventure Artist’s Edition, IDW. More Toth! A new printing of the oversized hardcover showcasing his original art in precise detail. Another can’t-miss.
The Archie Encyclopedia, Archie. First of its kind! Everything you wanted to know about the Riverdale crew, no matter what reality you’re into — from Classic Archie to Modern Archie to Little Archie to Married Archie, you name it. Prime, colorfully illustrated material that runs the gamut. (Click here for an EXCLUSIVE PREVIEW.)
Conan the Barbarian: Original Marvel Years Epic Collection — Vengeance in Asgalun, Marvel. Thomas. Buscema. Chaykin. Cover by Gil Kane. Go nuts, folks.
Marvel Legends Japanese Spider-Man 6-Inch Action Figure, Marvel. In comics shops this week! You know you’re getting this, so why fight it?
Scott Tipton, contributor-at-large, 13th Dimension
Blue and Gold, DC. Blue Beetle and Booster Gold need a monthly title. Buy the trade paperback, help make it happen.
Marvel Masterworks: Werewolf by Night, Vol. 1, Marvel. Just in time for Jack’s Disney+ debut!

I like the first book in these picks because it celebrates the late Alex Toth.
