I’m a sucker for nostalgia, and when old becomes new again – and it gets right – it’s great. You know what I mean: George Clooney as Frank Sinatra’s signature role in Ocean’s 11, throwback sports uniforms like you’ll see on Thanksgiving when the Detroit Lions play in their annual game and Jeff Parker’s Agents Of Atlas, Marvel’s 1950’s super group that never was.

You may know the story: Parker took the concept of a small group of characters that were really created in the 1950’s and from the imaginary teaming up of these characters from What If? #9 (1979), turned them into a current and in continuity band of misfits with a purpose and conviction. The first mini series sold incredible well and subsequently the Hardcover was received as one of the Best of 2007.

Now their back with their second collected edition: Agents Of Atlas: Dark Reign Premiere Hardcover, collecting Agents Of Atlas #1-5, Wolverine: Agent Of Atlas, Giant-Size Marvel Adventures Avengers and material from Secret Invasion: Who Do You Trust? & Dark Reign: New Nation, $24.99. Although it’s not as comprehensive as the first hardcover, it does come with a full regular and variant cover gallery and a section of pencil sketches. It’s good to see the Agents back and I am really enjoying their appearances all over the Marvel universe.

Also on the show, I talk about what I have in store for the foreseeable future including a rundown of books I’ll be reviewing and who I may be interviewing. If you’re a Steve Ditko fan, you don’t want to miss it.

All this and the New Releases of the Week.

CCL Podcast #245 – Viruses and Solicitations

If you’ve come by the blog or downloaded the podcasts recently you’ll notice that things have been out of sync. That’s because both my kids have been sick (at different times) and my computer got a nasty trojan which caused me to be offline for a few days. I’m slowing getting things back to normal. The computer is running great thanks to a few upgrades and the kids are healthy enough to be back at school.

Because of all the excitement going on, I didn’t have time to review any books this week, but I was able to update the New Releases Schedule and Checklists with all the latest solicitations from DC, Marvel, and Dark Horse and a full update the Library section of the site. I talk about a few of those books today, as well as, the addition of Fantastic Four Annual #12 to the Marvel Masterworks Inhumans Volume 2 and another delay to the DC Comics Classics Library: Shazam! Monster Society of Evil (now slated for September 2010). Finally, I provide an eBay Market Watch that includes New X-Men Omnibus, Absolute Planetary Book One, Art of Iron Man the Movie Hardcover and the Deadpool Volume 1 Secret Invasion Hardcover – which is just off the charts!

All this and the New Releases of the Week.

Over a year ago I featured The Hellboy Library Volume 1 for Podcast #188, a book that quickly became a favorite of mine. I now do follow up showcasing Volume 2: The Chained Coffin and The Right Hand of Doom and Volume 3: Conqueror Worm and Strange Places. Not only do I go over all of the wonderful the extra content, but straighten out just what comic books are collected and where they originally appeared. My thanks to Hans, from Berlin, Germany for the idea.

Also on the show, I tell you about the current TwoMorrows publishing Modern Masters sale, how to get two free Witchblade trade paperbacks from Top Cow and In-Stock Trades, content changes for two Marvel Dark Reign trade paperbacks and more Steve Ditko from DC Comics!

All this and the New Releases of the Week.

CCL Podcast #242 – Trading The Inhumans

Collected Comics Library Podcast #242
27,178Kb; 28m 55s

http://www.collectedcomicslibrary.com/

Since their inception in the pages of Fantastic Four, Black Bolt, Medusa, Crystal and the rest of The Inhumans have garnered a special place in the hearts of Marvel Fan-Boys. Today we celebrate the recent release of their first Marvel Masterwork (and their second coming out next year) and we take a look at all of their Collected Editions. We also look at what isn’t collected, particularly the 1988 Inhumans Graphic Novel by Ann Nocenti.

Also on the show, the CE world is being turned upside down by the news from Neal Adams that his 1978 Superman vs. Muhammad Ali will be getting the Deluxe Edition treatment with new coloring and the Green Lantern/Green Arrow: Hard Traveling Heroes storyline may be getting an Absolute edition. On the Marvel side – David Gabriel, Marvel’s Senior VP of Sales, has hinted to Heidi MacDonald that, Later on in the year, we’re going to do an omnibus with full runs from things like Night Nurse, Hellcat, and some other things you really wouldn’t collect anywhere else. Not sure what to make of that, we’ll have to wait and see. I wonder if Tigra or Shanna the She-Devil will be a part of the book.
