CCL Podcast #376 – 9 Year Anniversary – The Superman Newspaper Strips

Hard to believe another birthday is upon us. 9 years is along time, not to mention all the countless collected editions that have been recommended and srcutinized. Yes it’s been a fun ride and I’m ready for another year = including a new mic.

Truth is, I owe it all to you the listeners of my podcast and visitors to this little site. Thank you very much.

So, let’s get on with the topic at hand – IDW’s Library of American Comics: Superman: Silver Age Dailies Vol. 1: 1959-1961. Long time newspaper and Superman fanboys will remember that Kitchen Sink reprinted the first volumes Golden Age Superman and Batman, Dailies and Sunday’s, over 10 years ago. Sadly the program didn’t go any further, but it did get many people interested in strips that had never been reprinted – ever. Thankfully, Dean Mullany was one of those people and now it’s a part of his LoAC series. The complete run of Superman and Batman is in the plan, as well as, the rarely seen Wonder Woman strip that only lasted one short year.

So let’s get to it and kick off Year 10 with a little Truth, Justice and The American way.

Chris

…and congratulations to Jerry, of the Essential Showcase blog, who won the X-O Manowar trade!

Milestone show? Not so much.
For episode #375 I go over news including Jimmy Palmiotti’s Complete Power Girl: Power Trip TPB and John Severin’s Bomb Run for the Fantagraphics EC Library.

Plus the Top 10 Collected Editions according to Diamond in January 2014 and my involvement with TwoMorrows Publishing at C2E2 and Back Issue #76 which features a rundown of every single DC Comics Digest by yours truly.

And if that’s not enough I answer questions in regards to the Miracleman reprint series and just what the hell it collects, the upcoming Don Rosa Library featuring Donald Duck, if we’ll ever see a classic Punisher Omnibus or a Mandrake The Magician book, and what the difference is between the USA and International versions of Watchmen TPB (I need help on this one).

Oh and lastly I’m giving away X-O Manowar Volume Four: Homecoming (Valiant), but you’ll have to listen to find out how to enter and win!

Chris

PS I’m saving the milestone for #376, my 9th Anniversary Show, which will be in two weeks. Stay tuned, Lois!

Mayo Report: 2013-12 Trades

John Mayo from Comic Book Page and CBR and Chris Marshall of the Collected Comics Library podcast discuss the sales estimates for the Top 300 Graphic Novels and Collected Editions for December 2013.

Among the topics discussed is why does Diamond only do the Top 300 and not the Top 1000 like they do for the year end (which John and I will be covering soon); The Squadron Supreme Omnibus from Marvel; Peter Parker returning as Spider-Man just in time for The Amazing Spider-Man 2 movie and DC Universe Presents.

All this including the breakdown of how every company did in the month of December.

CCL Podcast #374 – Atlas Era: Namor, The Sub-Mariner

Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Heroes Volume 3 Namor, The Sub-Mariner

Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Heroes Volume 3 Namor, The Sub-Mariner

Collected Comics Library Podcast #374

I continue with my annual “Adopt A Character” theme focusing this week on the 1950′s revival of Namor, The Sub-Mariner. He, along with Captain America and the Human Torch, only lasted a total of 23 issues (spread across 6 different titles), but these were some of the most imaginative comics ever created. Some say that Bill Everett’s work on his signature character was the best Namor ever – even to this day!
I go over all three “Atlas Era Heroes” Masterworks, including what is collected, extra features and answer the question of why the Marvel “Trinity” was revived in the first place.

There’s also news from IDW regarding the Watchmen Artifact edition, John Romita’s Spider-Man Artist Edition Volume 2; updated release dates for Prince Valiant Volumes 9 and 10 from Fantagraphics and a question for all listeners on just how Superman: Unchained may get collected. Yes, your input is much appreciated — and needed!
