CCL Podcast #341 – Major Typos From DC and Marvel

Collected Comics Library Podcast #341
30.1Mb; 32m 47s

Today is one of those podcasts where I get things off my chest. Namely, mistakes made by the two biggest publishers in comics.

First up we have DC. I am really liking the Batman “Signature” editions. They are comparable to the Marvel hardcover Visionaries books. They showcase an artist’s (or writer’s) talent, however I have no idea why we have the exact same format and design but different titles: “Legends Of The Dark Knight” and “Tales Of The Batman”. I’ve asked DC, but they have not given me a satisfactory answer. But wait, there’s more. Looking at the spine of the books, you can plainly see that they are not uniform. You would think that DC would stick to a template, but that is clearly not the case.

Next we have Marvel. It was a sad day when I found out that the Marvel Premiere Classic line was being canceled, but I know that all good things must pass. Unfortunately, Marvel and the collected edition editors took a day off when designing the dustjacket for MPC: Hulk Abominable. The final volume in the series, Variant Volume 106, has the wrong number: Volume 103! There is no excuse for such a blatant mistake.

So yeah, this particular podcast may carry an edge.
Enjoy it at your own risk.

    The Alan Davis Batman shipped but was recalled by DC because of printing errors. I had one on order and flipped through it: there was some terrible scans used for a few issues at the back.

    Scott, Thanks for this! I did see it on the Diamond Top 300 GN for October, but Amazon.com said it never shipped. Now I know what the discrepancy is. Cheers!
