The past few weeks I’ve been savoring DC’s new offering of the Steve Ditko Omnibus Volume 1. This book features two short lived series Shade, The Changing Man (8 issues) and Stalker (4 issues). Both series are visually stunning and the stories are compelling and left me wanting more, sadly that didn’t happen from Ditko, although Shade did come back in a few different incarnations including his own Vertigo series. Look for more Shade in Justice League Dark. Stalker, on the other hand, would fit well in Demon Knights, if DC ever decides to bring him back (which they have done on more then one occasion). But more importantly, I give a complete rundown of all the other contents in this massive book, and there is a lot to go over including revealing the other artists and writers that created a whole host of comics that have never been reprinted until now.
I also go over my initial reaction to the first 2 weeks of DC Comics New 52. In short, I’m impressed with many titles, but some left me saying, “Thanks for the #1, but no thanks to #2″. Find out what made my cut!
Lastly, I go over the upcoming 2011 Detroit Fanfare and the Comics Podcasting Panel which is this weekend! Yes, the panel will be recorded and uploaded when it is ready next week:
