HOT PICKS! On Sale This Week!

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

Dan Greenfield, editor, 13th Dimension

Batman #406 Facsimile Edition, DC. Part 3 of Batman: Year One. This is the one where he saves the cat.

Nightwing #109, DC. Lovely cover by Bruno Redondo. I think the rest of the artists on the book have done an admirable job, but I do pine for Redondo’s return to interiors. Here’s my prediction: He will be back in time to close out Taylor’s run — whenever that might be — and for Dick and Barbara to get married. I’ve felt for some time this will be the Next Great Comics Wedding and Taylor and co. have been building a wonderful relationship between the two. I have no intel to base any of this on. Just a hunch.

Batman/Superman: World’s Finest #22, DC. I feel bad for Boy Thunder, but that’s the point, isn’t it. While I’m here, I will make my customary call for a spinoff World’s Finest: Batman and Robin series that takes place in the early days, by Mark Waid and Chris Samnee. I will not rest until this happens.

Wonder Woman #4, DC. Great Julian Totino Tedesco variant featuring a very Lynda Carter-esque Wonder Woman, with the backdrop a 1970s Women’s Rights Movement march. Outstanding.

Hawkeye by Fraction and Aja Omnibus, Marvel. A new printing and if you’ve never read this, now’s your chance. I highly, highly recommend it. One of Marvel’s best of the last 20 years and a heavy influence on the excellent TV series.

Marvel Masterworks: The Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 25, Marvel. Continuing Tom DeFalco and Ron Frenz’s beloved run from the ’80s.

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

Wonder Man: The Early Years Omnibus, Marvel. Never thought I’d see the day when we’d get a Wonder Man omnibus. Kind of makes me wonder if a certain Disney+ series was originally supposed to be premiering this week.

Original X-Men #1, Marvel. I can never resist some old-school X-Men.

Dan adds: Dig the John Romita Jr. variant:

Rom and the X-Men Marvel Tales #1, Marvel. Long-lost Rom crossovers from Bill Mantlo and Sal Buscema? Please and thank you!

  1. I agree, Dan. Nightwing is still good. It’s just not as good as it was when Redondo was on interiors. Waid & Mora’s World’s Finest is at the top of my favorites list now!
