Bennett's Best for the week of October 5

By Greg Bennett

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.

DC Comics Goes Ape from DC Comics

DC Comics Goes Ape, trade paperback, DC Comics ($19.99)

Classic stories from the DC Silver Age, when an ape on the cover meant increased sales (no, I’m not kidding). These stories have a goofy charm all their own. Highly recommended (and kid-friendly too).

Charley's War, Volume 5: Return to the Front from Titan Books

Charley’s War, Volume 5: Return to the Front, hard cover, Titan Books ($19.95)

British WWI comics, done in the style of the old 1950s EC Comics (Tales from the Crypt, Frontline Combat, etc). Bleak, dark, and touching.

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.
