ICv2, Diamond and Previews World has released the Top 300 Graphic Novels for April 2015.

Coming in at #1 is is The Walking Dead TPB Volume 23. This comes at no surprise as the Walking Dead always ranks well when a new book (hardcover or softcover) is released. Image and DC both had four in the top 10 while Marvel had one.

The one big surprise on the list was at #10 with Lumberjanes by (W) Noelle Stevenson, Grace Ellis (A) Brooke A. Allen (CA) Noelle Stevenson from Boom! Studios. This book collects the first 4 issues and is slated to be a movie. Get the First Printing while you can!

Mandrake the Magician: The King Years (and maybe a little more) To Be Collected

Mandrake the Magician King Years V. 1 cover

Mandrake the Magician King Years V. 1 cover

The collected editions world has been all a buzz the past 24 hours with the announcement of Mandrake the Magician The Complete King Years: Volume One from Hermes Press, September 2015. But there I have found that there’s a little confusion as to what this actually collects. More after the official statement:

Mandrake the Magician the Complete King Years: Volume One; reprints issues #1 through #5 as well as the complete back-up stories found King Features’ Flash Gordon; this reprint features the Mandrake the Magician comics which premiered in 1966 during the height of the Silver Age; cover artwork by Andre LeBlanc; covers by Fred Fredericks, Don Heck, and Andre LeBlanc; stories by Dick Wood; interior artwork by Don Heck, Werner Roth; Fred Fredericks, Andre LeBlanc and Ray Bailey; ISBN #978-1-61345-098-7; 7.75 by 10.25 by 1; full color; deluxe hardcover with dustjacket and printed cover with endpapers; 176 pages; historical essay; $49.99.
The comic book version of the 20th Century’s most famous fictional magician sees print again in Hermes Press’ deluxe version of King Features comics’ Mandrake the Magician! Lee Falk’s newspaper strip, Mandrake the Magician, offered readers, magic, occult and the fantastic and King Feature’s comic book version, which saw print during the height of the Silver Age, was a worthy entry into the world of comic books.
This first volume of the complete comic book run of Mandrake the Magician presents the first five comics in the series together with all of the back-up stories printed in King Features’ Flash Gordon title. These stories feature artwork by such Silver Age luminaries as Don Heck, Werner Roth, and Andre LeBlanc with scripts by Dick Wood.
Volume One also contains tons of extras including extensive essays on Lee Falk’s Mandrake the Magician and the artists who created the comic book series. Also included (in addition to the comic book reprint of the story) is the complete original art to one of the back-up stories.

Who is Mandrake The Magician? The character of Mandrake was created by Lee Falk (and was created before the other iconic Falk character, The Phantom, in 1936) as a syndicated newspaper comic strip distributed by King Features Syndicate that began on June 11, 1934. It’s been argued that he (or Mel Graff’s Phantom Magician), is comics’ first superhero. The strip had an incredible run: The Sunday Mandrake strip ended December 29, 2002 and the daily strip ended mid-story on July 6, 2013.

What this collection is: Like the solicit above, it will collect the first 5 issues of the 10-issue, 1966-67 comic book series by King Comics. Most of the stories were remakes of past newspaper strip stories and featured art by André LeBlanc, Ray Bailey and others. Perhaps we will get annotations as to the exact strip they mimic. The book will also collect all of the back-up 4-page stories printed in King Features’ Flash Gordon title, issues #1-3.

Mandrake Four Color #752

Mandrake Four Color #752

What this collection is not: In November 1956, Dell published Four Color #752, featuring a full issue, including cover, of Mandrake The Magician. It appears that this book will not be collecting that comic, but maybe it will be included as a back-up extra in Volume 2. Also, in 2012 Titan Comics announced a reprint series of the Sunday comics with Mandrake the Magician: The Hidden Kingdom of Murderers – The Sundays 1935-1937. The book has never been published, nor is there any mention of it on the Titan website, but, curiously, the listing can still be found on Amazon.com

Mandrake the Magician: The Hidden Kingdom of Murderers - The Sundays 1935-1937

Mandrake the Magician: The Hidden Kingdom of Murderers – The Sundays 1935-1937

Over the years there have been several attempts to reprint the dailies, Sundays and comic books, but they have been few and far between. Hermes Press has had great success with The Phantom, let’s hope this this is the beginning of a long run of Lee Falk’s first great creation.

Oh, I still have a list, and in fact I wrote a ton of them for this issue (but you won’t see my by-line underneath them all). All I can say, if you get one Back Issue in your life get this one as it’s all about Reprints and Collected Editions which is something I know you love.

My Pick Of The Week is to the right —->

There’s a slew of great books this week: Grayson, Flash Gordon, hell, there’s even a Star Wars Omnibus out this week, but I have to give it to IDW’s Amazing Spider-Man The Ultimate Newspaper Comics Collection Volume 1 1977-1978 HC, $49.99. You’ll recall that Marvel did their own collected edition release of this material a few years back and it was poorly received. I’m confident that Dean Mullaney and his Library of American Comics imprint has done a better and more thorough job of reconstruction this time around.

Fantastic Four Volume 4 The End Is Fourever TP

Collected Comics Library Podcast #412
21.3Mb; 23m 11s

Host
Chris Marshall / @ChrisCCL

Topics include:
Mad Max: Fury Road, Game Of Thrones binge-watching, Agents of Atlas after Agent Carter, Deconstructing Guardians Of The Galaxy Solo Classic Omnibus, Annihilation Classic HC and what’s missing.

Finally, there is talk this week of the lack of Fantastic Four and X-Men merchandise and only scant appearances in the comics. I take a look at the current state of collected editions of these teams. There seems to be a fair amount of X-Men and Wolverine books, but barely any FF. Listed here are the only collected editions that are currently solicited:
Marvel Masterworks The Fantastic Four Volume 17 HC, 06/10/15
Fantastic Four Volume 4 The End Is Fourever TP, 06/17/15
Fantastic Four By Aguirre-Sacasa And Mcniven TP, 07/15/15
…and that’s it – no FF books after July 15 and that is with the movie coming out on August 7!
I hope this isn’t the end, but it sure looks bleak.

This podcast is brought to you by In-Stock Trades. In-Stock Trades is my collected editions retailer of choice. Simple ordering, fast shipping and no hassle. Check out the Top 10 selling books of the week and all of their ongoing specials. And check out their sister company, Discount Comic Book Service,for the best in weekly comics.

This podcast is also brought to you by Forbidden Planet International (UK), Europe’s largest online retailer bringing you the finest in comics, graphic novels and cult merchandise. Be sure to read their awesome daily blog.

QUESTION(S) OF THE DAY: Will you miss the Fantastic Four if no more comics or trades of them are published?

Omnibus of the Week: The Trial of Captain America by Ed Brubaker

It’s the penultimate Omnibus collection of Ed Brubaker’s Captain America! Those of us collecting the run across the beautiful Omnibus editions had quite the wait between Cap Lives and this one, but it’s here, it’s awesome, and I’m finally getting around to making a video for it!

In this volume we see Bucky retain the role as Captain America, delivering some of my absolute favorite stories from Brubaker’s run. It’s a great volume, so check out this video and see why I love it so much!
