Marvel Collected Editions December 2012 Solicitations

Marvel has released their December 2012 solicitations. A new Spider-Man Masterwork! No doubt to be released in commemoration of Amazing Spider-Man #700. Only 55 Volumes to go! I like the fact that the Marvel Special Edition Treasury #1 is included in Volume 15. I recently finished up work on Back Issue 61 (Twomorrows Publishing) that focuses on the Bronze Age Treasury books. You won’t want to miss it.

I’ve mentioned on the podcast and in his blog that I hoped that Marvel would continue the Marvel Premiere Classic line in softcover trades. Sure enough we have a follow-up to the Captain America: Red Glare (Variant Volume 76) HC. Captain America: Land Of The Free picks up where the Red Glare left off. You’ll see that there is no “MPC” in the title.

Speaking of Marvel Premiere Classic, two of them get new printings as softcovers: Captain Marvel: Death of Captain Marvel and Marvel: The End. Neither book presents anything new in this format. And one final note on the MPC’s: Marvel has combined Guardians of the Galaxy: Earth Shall Overcome (Variant Volume 24) with Guardians of the Galaxy: The Power Of Starhawk (Variant Volume 26) to create Guardians of the Galaxy: Tomorrow’s Avengers Volume 1, 368 pages, $39.99. So if you missed the hardcovers the first time around, here’s your chance to get caught up with the original Guardians.

What are you getting?

The X-Men reunite with Professor X, who asks them to help overthrow the Shi’ar tyrant Deathbird — but all is not as it seems, and the X-Men must deduce the truth before it’s too late! Meanwhile, sparks fly as Rogue and Magneto team up to save the Savage Land! Then, the X-Men and X-Factor unite to battle the Shadow King — but the price of their victory is more than Professor X can stand! And as a new team rises from the ashes of the old, Magneto draws a dangerous line in the sand to protect his fellow mutants — leading to an explosive finale, and the end of an era!
