HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Absolute Superman for All Seasons, DC. A Loeb-Sale classic, boasting a wonderful story and wonderful art, well deserving of the format. It’s even kinda melancholy, so you need to be in just the right mood to enjoy it. Bjarne Hansen’s spectacular colors steal the show.

The Adventures of Red Sonja Omnibus, Dynamite. Collecting the classic ’70s Marvel stories featuring the She-Devil With a Sword. Dynamite holds the license now, so that’s why they’re pubbing this and not Marvel.

Superman: Red Son, DC. The latest trade paperback release of Mark Millar, Dave Johnson and co.’s inventive story that posits what would have happened if Kal-El’s rocket landed in Soviet Russia instead of the American heartland.

Fantastic Four Epic Collection: The Crusader Syndrome, Marvel. Mid-’70s FF brought to you by the likes of Gerry Conway, Roy Thomas, Rich Buckler, John Buscema and George Perez. Some lineup there.

Marvel Age #1000, Marvel. The House of Ideas pulls out the #1000 schtick for this anthology of stories from top-notch creators.  Even includes a Marvel Value Stamp — #1000.

Catwoman Uncovered #1, DC. A collection of great Catwoman covers from the current series. Excellent work by the likes of Tula Lotay, Jenny Frison, Joelle Jones and many others.

Wonder Woman #1 Facsimile Edition, DC. George Perez and Greg Potter’s Wonder Woman #1 gets a second Facsimile Edition, and this time there’s a sketch variant (below) and a foil variant. By the way, the Detective Comics #58 Facsimile Edition, featuring the Penguin’s first appearance, has been moved to Sept. 19. It was originally scheduled for last week.

Giant-Size X-Men #1 Facsimile Edition, Marvel. Like WW#1, this is a second Facsimile Edition release. Like WW#1, you cannot go wrong with this classic.

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

G’nort’s Illustrated Swimsuit Edition #1, DC. This is worth buying just for the genius title pun.

Dan adds: The Adam Hughes Power Girl variant has gotten everyone into an understandable lather.

Harley Quinn: The Animated Series — The Eat Bang Kill Tour. This series was so much fun, a great accompaniment to the TV show.

The Phantom Stranger Omnibus. I’m honestly surprised there are enough Phantom Stranger comics to fill an omnibus.

Dan adds: I’m honestly surprised this is coming out at all. It’s been delayed for years.

New Avengers Modern Era Epic Collection: Assembled, Marvel. I never thought I’d be nostalgic for Bendis Avengers, but I feel like I could use an e-read on these.

  1. The Wonder Woman #1 Facsimile Edition coming out tomorrow may not be a true facsimile. The solicitation promises “the timeless tale in its original glory with period-correct ads so that new readers can experience what it was like picking up this issue for the very first time” – but the original 1987 comic didn’t have ANY ads. The cover was a wraparound, the inside front cover had a text page by George Perez, and the inside back cover was a house ad for the next issue.

    • That may just be boilerplate language in the solicitation. DC and Marvel have been careful about this. But I guess we’ll see!
