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.


Scalped Volume 3: Dead Mothers from DC Comics

Scalped Volume 3: Dead Mothers, trade paperback, DC Comics (Vertigo), $17.99

Jason Aaron is comics fastest-rising star, and this is his magnum opus (so far). If you haven’t yet, go pick up all three volumes of this killer noir comic and get hooked on the adventures of FBI agent Dashiell Shaw, working undercover on his home reservation. Really, really great!

After 9/11: America's War on Terror from Hill and Wang

After 9/11: America’s War on Terror, Hill and Wang, $30 - hard cover, $16.95 - soft cover

Ernie Colon and Sid Jacobson, the same guys who helped us to understand the 9/11 Commission Report, bring us their take on the post-9/11 world. Having waded through years of international media reports, they help us make sense of the last seven years using their favorite medium—comics. 

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.
