DC Comics Collected Editions for Spring 2013

DC Comics have revealed their trades and hardcovers for Spring 2013. This is not an uncommon occurrence from DC as they have done this for several years now. By all means this is not a complete list of everything and dates on these books are subject to change. I’m not going to go and give my opinion on every book but I will give my thoughts on most. I welcome your feedback and are curious as to what you are going to buy.

A pretty solid month of New 52 rolls on. I’m glad to see The Culling trade paperback getting it’s own stand alone collected edition. I just finished up the storyline that runs through Legion Lost, Superboy, Teen Titans and the TT Annual. I was wondering just the other day how DC was going to collect all of it. If you have not read any of these books, this is a good place to start.
Batman: From the Looking Glass will probably be the standout of the month. A Batman OGN every so often has become a sure thing nowadays and DC is banking that this book from Bruce Jones and Sam Keith will sell well.
A pair of classic Superman books are interesting. First up is Last Son of Krypton by Geoff Johns and a host of others. I recall it was a pretty good storyline. The other is the lang awaited Man Of Steel Volume 7 by John Byrne. Just so you know Volume 6 came out in 2008!

Ahhh, Night Of The Owls. If you aren’t reading Batman then you don’t like big budget superhero comics. I was hesitant when I heard Scott Snyder was going to take on Batman fulltime in the New 52, but I am glad he did. This is some top notch writing and artwork. I own the originals and I’ll be double-dipping on the hardcover when it comes out. I’m willing to bet that they will present the story in accordance to the timeline that is established in the books as it all takes place over the course of one night.
I never read Batman/Deathblow: After The Fire but I suppose you can go wrong with Azzarello, Bermejo and Bradstreet.
The Superman Vs. Shazam! trade paperback is one I just can’t pass up. I hope and pray that someone, anyone will write a nice introduction of the history of Captain Marvel, the copyright lawsuit, and the eventual licensing by DC Comics in the 1970′s.

The way it stands now, March will be an expensive month (and I don’t even know what the other publishers will have in store). I didn’t expect an Impulse trade at all, but it’s nice to see. I just hope this paves the way for a complete Young Justice set of books.
The Marshal Law Omnibus is one we have been expecting – just not from DC! Originally solicited by Top Shelf years ago, for whatever reason the reprint rights have gone DC’s way. I’m fine with that, but I’m sure Chris Starros and the rest of his staff would have done a good if not better job then DC. I’ll be eager to see what his thoughts are, but Chris is not one to criticize other people’s work.
Metal Men Archives Volume 2 is a welcome sign to the resurgence of the DC Archive line. This includes the new Wonder Woman: The Amazon Princess Archives Vol. 1 HC. Another long overdue book and one that will find a nice place on my bookshelf.
Finally this month there is a new, expanded edition of Superman: The Death and Return of Superman Omnibus HC. You may recall that a 784 page, $75.00 Hardcover was released on September 12, 2007 in honor of the 15 Anniversary. Now we get the bigger, more expensive, edition for the 21st Anniversary. I hope all those sellers on eBay hurry up and sell there old copy for $150-$225, otherwise it will just be a big old paper weight.

Absolute Top 10 HC is a must own. So says my good friend Augie De Blieck from Comic Book Resources. I can’t go wrong with that and it is Alan Moore afterall. I’ve already started to save up.
Adventures of Superman: Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez HC is another nice surprise. DC has done an excellent job of their own versions of Marvel Visionaries on the Batman side like the upcoming Tales of the Batman: Archie Goodwin HC. I’m sure Superman will be just as good.
When I saw the listing for Jack Kirby Omnibus Vol. 2 HC, I had to think hard about Jack Kirby Omnibus Vol. 1 HC. When was that released and what was in it? Then I remembered Jack Kirby Omnibus Vol. 1 HC Starring Green Arrow! Right. I’m on it!
Lastly we get The New Teen Titans Omnibus Vol. 3. We new we were getting this right after Volume 2 was released and DC stated that The New Teen Titans #38 will no longer appear in The New Teen Titans Omnibus Vol. 2 HC (DEC110292, $75). The issue will instead appear in The New Teen Titans Omnibus Vol. 3, along with other issues in the same storyline.

That’s all folks. What are you getting?
