HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Tales of the Titans #1, DC. The launch of the four-issue series patterned after the popular 1982 mini that gave us background on Cyborg, Raven. Changeling and Cyborg. This time around, Starfire kicks it off, with Raven, Donna Troy and Beast Boy to follow monthly. I’m into The Titans, so I’ll take a little side trip, seeing as how it’s not much of a commitment and looks like a lot of fun. Written by Shannon Hale and Dean Hale, with art by Javier Rodriguez and cover by regular Titans artist Nicola Scott.

Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #17, DC. An underrated aspect of this lovable series: Comics characters now change outfits all the time to whatever’s fashionable, but artist Dan Mora makes the classics look as cool today as they did 50 years ago. A tweak here, a seam there and that’s all you need, folks.

Scott adds: Is that Mister Atom I see? You got my money, Waid.

Wonder Woman: War of the Gods Special Edition #1, DC. Not a Facsimile Edition but the first issue of a four-part reprint of the controversial 1991 George Perez series.

Marvel Masterworks: The Spectacular Spider-Man Vol. 6, Marvel. Hey, what about the Epic Collection series, folks? Wouldn’t it be grand if Sensational popped up over there too? It would!

Homicide: The Graphic Novel, Part One, First Second Books. Yep, that Homicide. A graphic novel adaptation of David Simon’s nonfiction book about the Baltimore murder police that inspired the fantastic NBC show Homicide: Life on the Street and HBO’s The Wire. By Philippe Squarzoni and Simon.

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

Blade #1, Marvel. Marvel’s original vampire hunter returns, written by Bryan Hill and drawn by the Eisner-winning Elena Casagrande!

Marvel Masterworks: Ghost Rider Vol. 5, Marvel. Another collection of ’70s Ghost Rider nuttiness, reprinted in color for the first time!

  2. Why are they reprinting War of the Gods as individual issues rather than as a trade?

    That Spectacular Spidey Masterworks is VERY welcome…!
