Legendary comic book store owner Greg Bennett provides a pair of recommendations for comic book lovers every week. Titles are either currently on specialty store shelves or shipping or in the near future. Fans can also click on the covers to appreciate the fine art.

Superman: Escape from Bizarro World HC

Superman: Escape from Bizarro World HC ($24.99)

Superman travels to the homeworld of his imperfect copy, Bizarro. The writing team of superstar comics scribe Geoff Johns (Flash, Green Lantern, JSA, Teen Titans) and filmmaker Richard Donner (Superman, Lethal Weapon) delivers a quirky, haunting story, and monster artist extraordinaire Eric Powell (The Goon) provides perfectly matched art. Plus, as a bonus, a few classic Bizarro tales from yesteryear.

Batman vs. Two-Face

Batman vs. Two-Face TP ($19.99)

When District Attorney Harvey Dent had acid thrown in his face, he went insane and Two-Face was born. Get ready for The Dark Knight movie with this collection of stories featuring the greatest battles between Batman and Two-Face—from Golden Age stories by Batman creator Bob Kane and Richard Sprang, to classic Silver Age Neal Adams/Dennis O’Neil, right up to modern Batman animator Bruce Timm.

Greg Bennett is the Owner/Manager of Big Planet Comics, a chain of pop art specialty stores in the DC Metro area with locations in Georgetown, Bethesda, Vienna, & College Park.
