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.


Runaways: Dead End Kids from Marvel Entertainment

Runaways: Dead End Kids, trade paperback, Marvel Entertainment  ($15.99)

Joss Whedon’s take on the Runaways was on a lot of critics’ lists for best of 2008. Not bad when you’re following Brian K. Vaughn on his own creation! Now finally available as an affordable TP. 

Incognito from Marvel Entertainment

Incognito, No. 1, Icon / Marvel Entertainment ($3.50)

Ed Brubaker and Sean Phillips take a break from their award-winning noir series Criminal, to bring us this tale of a super-villain in the witness protection program. And just like in Goodfellas, he can’t take the lack of action…. Highly recommended!

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.
