HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Batman and Son/Batman and Robin: Batman Reborn, DC. New printings of two superb trade paperbacks by Grant Morrison, Andy Kubert, Chris Burnham and co. Morrison’s Batman run might be the greatest since the end of the Bronze Age. It had its natural Morrisonian weirdness and occasional impenetrability. But the highs were incredibly high. Strongly recommended!

Thor Epic Collection: Even an Immortal Can Die, Marvel. Wein, Thomas, John Buscema, Walt Simonson. ‘Nuff said.

Strange Tales #178 Facsimile Edition, Marvel. The first part of Jim Starlin’s cosmic epic. (And of course Warlock will be in Guardians Vol. 3.) It’s a Facsimile Edition — buy it!

Hulk #14, Marvel. Dig that Alex Ross variant! What an Abomination!

Polka-Dot Man Statue, Iron Studios. We now live in a world where Polka-Dot Man not only is in a movie, but you can buy a $129.99 statue of him. The miniature David Dastmalchian clocks in at 8 1/4 inches tall, which is practically Mego height. Neat!

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

Creature Commandos, DC Comics. With the new animated series currently in production from the James Gunn DC Films regime, seems like a good time to catch up with this trade collection.

Legends of the DC Universe – Carmine Infantino, DC Comics. Best known as an artist for his lengthy runs on The Flash, Infantino was a mainstay at DC for decades. Love his work.

Dan adds: Been waiting a long time for this one. Scott mentions the Flash (and rightly so) but my favorite Infantino work was on Batman (of course). This collection is a survey of his work across many titles and genres.

Doctor Strange #2, Marvel. This looks like some old-school classic Doctor Strange storytelling, especially with that Alex Ross cover.

  1. I believe you may have missed the updates several weeks ago. The Carmine Infantino book is delayed a week to May 2 (and with a slightly different cover), and the Creature Commandos book is delayed two weeks to May 9.
