Why Isn’t This An Omnibus? Runaways Review


Hey all! Trying something a bit new here so I hope you all enjoy it. Usually my “review” videos are my “Omnibus of the Week” vids, but I wanted to give myself an outlet to review titles that I love but that haven’t gotten the Omni treatment yet, and the inaugural video in this line will be focusing on a series I particularly love… Runaways! In the video I talk about why I love the book, a bit of what it’s about, what makes it great, and a little bit of how I’d collect it if it ever did get the Omni treatment.
Thanks for watching!

My Pick Of The Week is to the right —->
This week I’m going with the new offering from Canton Street Press, The Original Ghost Rider Volume 1. I’ve been very impressed with this start-up publisher and have even talked about their other books Airboy/Valkryie and Canteen Kate. The whole history of Ghost Rider and how he fits into Marvel’s current incarnation is a whole other topic and I suggest your read the Wikipedia page. But in the meantime, pick this one up for some great Golden Age Western stories.

Collected Editions Out This Week – July 22

America Vs. The Justice Society TP

America Vs. The Justice Society TP

The complete upcoming list can be found on the Collected Editions Release Schedule page.

My Pick Of The Week is to the right —->

Normally I would pick something obvious like Legends Of The Dark Knight Norm Breyfogle HC, after all Breyfogle is a master and he’s been ailing as of late. But when I saw the new edition of America Vs. The Justice Society, I just had to go with that. This collected edition of the 1985, four-issue comic book mini-series takes place just prior to the events depicted in Crisis On Infinite Earths, serves as a retrospective, of sorts, of the JSA team and why they decided to disband in 1951. The series was written by Roy and Dann Thomas and featured artwork from Rafael Kayanan, Rich Buckler and Jerry Ordway among others. If you have been getting the trade paperbacks of the JSA/JLA Team-Ups, then you’ll want to add this to your library.
Original solicit:

Do you swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth?
Years after his death, Batman’s diary is made public only to excuse his old teammates, the Justice Society of America, of being Nazi collaborators with Hitler himself. Not wanting to fight their own country, the Justice Society surrender themselves to the law and now stand trial for crimes they did not commit. Who is the mastermind behind framing the World’s Greatest Superheroes? And why would they tarnish their pillars of society? Collects AMERICA VS. THE JUSTICE SOCIETY #1-4, $14.99

The complete upcoming list can be found on the Collected Editions Release Schedule page.

My Pick Of The Week is to the right —->

I have been loving the reissues of the Superman comics strip from IDW and The Library Of American Comics. This is the third of the Sunday strips and it has Superman moving into the 1950’s. And if you like his one be sure to get the Superman Dailies and the Batman and Wonder Woman collections.
Original solicit:

These never-before-reprinted 1950s Sundays are a special treat for Superman fans and comics historians worldwide. This first book of the Atomic Age Sundays features more than 175 full-color strips, from October 23, 1949 through March 15, 1953. In these tales, the impish Mr. Mxyztplk has returned to drive Superman crazy and the Man of Steel returns to Smallville for “Superboy Week” celebrations and ends up solving a case he never had a chance to as Superboy!
