Lot’s of news came down this past week from DC Comics including new configuration of the Transmetropolitan Trade Paperbacks, and the unofficial announcement of Action Heroes Archives Volume 2 which will feature not only Captain Atom, but The Blue Beetle and The Question.

For the feature this week I give a bio of Sgt. Frank Rock and a rundown of the most popular and recommended War genre collected editions. Thanks to everyone who wrote in and posted their favorites on the Forum.

Lastly, congratulations to Gav from Victoria, Australia! He’ll get a copy of Sgt. Rock Archives Volume 3 thanks to Bob aka JLAFan on the Forum.

Feedback is welcome

Dang! A lot of new and Press Releases came down this week, well the past two days really.
Among them the SNAP! Festival is going on in Dearborn this Saturday (link below), I may make it out there and I may not. It’ll be a game time decision.
My thanks to Jeff for the kind e-mail. Be sure to check out his Blog.
I said I didn’t have a book to review, but I did go over the
Showcase Presents Phantom Stranger, which I am enjoying very much.
I also have a new Question of the Month for you to contribute to.
Oh, and please excuse my head-cold

Error in Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Tales of Suspense

Bill from the Golden Age of Comics Podcast has informed me that there is a printing error with the brand new Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Tales of Suspense. The Table of Contents references Tales to Astonish the previous Atlas Era volume. The ToC is correct and only the title of each comic (1-10) is in error.
