Best Collected Editions Links This Week

Due to the Aurora shooting last week I did not post this regular Friday feature. All other news palled in comparison. I also decided to take the week off of blogging and podcasting and reflect on the events with my kids. Parenting is a tough job, but living cannot be ignored. I did go see The Dark Knight Rises and like many of you cringed in the first few minutes when I knew the shooting started as the events unfolded on the screen. That was an eerie feeling and one that will live with me for a very long time.

Here are some of the best posts/articles regarding comic book reprints and collected editions that I have retweeted on @ChrisCCL, Facebook, Google+, and read in RSS subscriptions this week.


  • Themístocles Nazario Lobos Aguirre (December 3, 1928 – July 24, 2012), better known as Themo Lobos, was a Chilean comic strip, comic book writer and artist. He is the creator of characters such as Máximo Chambónez, Ferrilo, Nick Obre, and Alaraco, but his most famous work is Mampato, a character first developed, briefly, by Eduardo Armstrong and Óscar Vega; Lobos then wrote and illustrated his episodes from 1968 to 1978. He is also known as the publisher of the comic-book Cucalón, which collected all his characters and their classic adventures.
