It’s a milestone podcast as I reach #75 and what a better way to conclude our discussion of the Greatest Superman Trades and Hardcovers that you should own or perhaps some that you don’t even know exist! This time around, I dive into your e-mail on what your favorite Superman trades and hardcovers are. Thanks to all of you who wrote in.
It’s also a good week to go over sold out trades, courtesy of ComicList.com and I touch on the Trade Department Blog at Marvel.com.
Congratulations goes out to Chris of Arnold, Missouri who is the winner of the trade Crisis on Multiple Earths Volume 1.
Finally, be sure to check out the latest Forbidden Planet International Podcast. Joe, Les and Paul have all sorts of good information on upcoming and available comic book related products.

A great question from Lynn about canceled monthly books and how and if they could be saved by putting out the Trades. We can discuss it further on the forum.
