HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale Spider-Man Gallery Edition, Marvel. A re-release of the miniseries previously known as Spider-Man: Blue in a size that’s just shy of a classic treasury edition. If you’ve never read this moving re-telling of Peter and Gwen’s romance, I highly recommend it — and I’m looking forward to seeing the wonderful Tim Sale art in an oversized volume.

There’s also a direct-market variant cover:

My Greatest Adventure #80 Facsimile Edition, DC. The first appearance of the Doom Patrol, by Arnold Drake, Bob Haney and Bruno Premiani! (There’s also a foil variant if such things excite you!)

The Incredible Hulk #180 Facsimile Edition, Marvel. This Facsimile Edition, which was first released in 2020, features Wolverine’s 1974 first actual appearance, a cameo on the final page.

Star Wars #36, Marvel. Dig Jerry Ordway’s retro-style variant that pays tribute to Marvel’s 1983 Return of the Jedi adaptation. A nice, li’l 40th anniversary treat.

Betty and Veronica: Friends Forever Beach Party #1, One-Shot (Archie). Summertime in Riverdale! Break out the sunscreen!

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

Captain America #750, Marvel. I’m always a sucker for an oversized milestone issue.

Dan adds: Dig the George Perez variant!

Dan adds more: Dig the John Romita variant — adapted from the Mighty Marvel Calendar For 1975.

Captain Marvel: Dark Tempest #1, Marvel. I remember liking Ann Nocenti’s run on Daredevil back in the day, so I’m here for this.

Dan adds: Dig the George Perez variant!

Wasp: Small Worlds, Marvel. One of the few unfortunate side effects of the MCU is the way it somewhat de-emphasized Hank Pym and Janet Van Dyne in the current comics. So anything to put a spotlight on Janet, I’m buying in for.
