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.


Astounding Wolf-Man: Volume 1 from Image Comics

Astounding Wolf-Man Vol.1 trade paperback, Image Comics, $14.99

Robert Kirkman (Walking Dead, Marvel Zombies, Invincible) combines his love of monsters with his love of super-heroes (again) in the Astounding Wolf-Man Vol.1. Sort of a Silver Age Marvel-style werewolf super-hero, but updated for the 21st Century (read: dark, edgy).

Final Crisis: Superman Beyond, No. 1  from DC Comics

Final Crisis: Superman Beyond, No. 1, DC Comics, $4.50

These Final Crisis spin-offs have all been tremendous, and Superman Beyond is no exception. Superman travels to multiple earths in order to save Lois Lane’s life—as scripted by Grant Morrison (Beautiful art by Doug Mahnke), and all the “hyper-delic” parts are in 3-D! (3-D glasses included)

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.
