Dark Horse Collected Editions November 2012 Solicitations

Dark Horse has released their November 2012 solicitations. The Eerie Archives have reached volume 12! I am so far behind on collecting this title. I think I only own 2 of them.

I fully expect Star Wars: Blood Ties Volume 2—Boba Fett Is Dead TP to a best seller when the sales figures get released from Diamond. I’ve been reading it in the monthly issues. It’s been a OK series and the writers have toned down Fett’s ruthlessness, probably due to the younger Clone Wars cartoon audience.

Finally at the bottom of the list is The Sunday Funnies Volume 1 And 2. This looks to be a wonderful nostalgic newspaper product and the solicit says that both volumes are available now.

What are you getting?
