If you listened to last week’s show then you’ll know I have started my annual “Adopt A Character” excursion. I picked two things for 2014: The classic Valiant comic books and Namor, The Sub-Mariner.
This week I go over the first four volumes of the Valiant Masters, which can be compared to the the Marvel Masterworks or the DC Archives. The first four volumes are as follows:

6 Collected Editions Worthy Of Your Attention #40

Is there one book that is a “must have” collected edition that came out this week? My friends Andy Tom (@AndrewJTom), Chris Campbell (@ChrisCampbell8), Marc Diefenderfer (@Dief88), Shane Hannafey, Adam Besenyodi (@adambesenyodi), Joey Nazzari (@CaptDS9E), Wallace Ryan (@ReverendLove) Chris Partin (@ChrisPartin) and I (@ChrisCCL) are sharing some comic book collected editions, reprints and/or graphic novels released this week that you may be interested in.

The Black Beetle Volume 1: No Way Out HC
Published by Image
$19.99
Francesco Francavilla is one of those creators that once you see what he can do with a comic book page you can only want to see another and another and… well, you get the point. BLACK BEETLE is Francavilla’s creator owned series at Dark Horse that will make you stand up and pay attention to what he’s capable of as a writer and as an artist.
BLACK BEETLE is a love letter to those pulp comic greats like THE SHADOW and THE SPIDER and there’s not a page or panel that you see in this hardcover that does not remind you of Francavilla’s influence by those characters and stories. The moment you open this book to the time you get to the last page you’re enveloped into a world of action and mystery. There’s very little opportunity to catch your breath and that is what makes this book so enjoyable – there’s no need to slow the pace down. The story is wall to wall action and you’re pulled in and are dragged behind the Black Beetle as he swings from roof tops, punches bad guys, and defeats the big, bad evil guy. All of it, you’re pulled in and Francavilla does an amazing job at keeping you in and entertained.
BLACK BEETLE VOL 1 HC is something that fans of high action and old-school mystery should pick up and be entertained by because that’s what it’s here to do.

Walt Disney’s Donald Duck Volume 5: Christmas On Bear Mountain by Carl Bark HC
Published by Fantagraphics
$28.99
I was never a huge cartoon duck fan outside of Howard the Duck and would have remained so if not for picking up Don Rosa’s Eisner winning “the Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck” a few years ago. It turned me into a huge fan of the duck genre and then, to make matters worse, Fantagraphics decided to release an archive series that would collect the work of the Maestro of Cartoon Ducks, the legendary Carl Barks! I was trapped and had to give in to the guilty pleasure that comes from reading a well crafted duck tale.
This volume’s title story, “Christmas On Bear Mountain” is the first appearance of the richest duck of them all, Uncle Scrooge McDuck. In this story, Scrooge is a lot grouchier, bitter and ill tempered than his later incarnations and closer to the Dickens persona rather than Bark’s character. It’s a typical Christmas story with Donald, short on funds again, taking his nephews to Uncle Scrooge’s chalet on Bear Mountain to find some way to celebrate Christmas. As usual, the situation goes from calm to madcap crazy as Scrooge dresses up as a bear to test Donald and his nephews and somehow, a bear cub and his Mother get into the chalet and caught up in the story.
As with the other books in this series, there are a couple of other long form stories including the classic Barks tales “Volcano Valley”, “Adventure Down Under” and one of his more moody graphic works, titled “Ghost of the Grotto”. The book has seven 10 page short gag stories similar to the other books in the series and these certainly do not disappoint. Although the longer form stories are my favourites, I still enjoy Bark’s shorter pieces for their energy, light frivolity and slapstick timing.
I know that whenever I bring up the subject of ducks with my comic book pals, they look at me a-scant but I highly recommend this fabulous collection from Fantagraphics that celebrates the life and prodigious body of work of the Dean of Duckdom, the irreplaceable Carl Barks.

Bloodshot Vol. 3: Harbinger Wars TPB
Collects Bloodshot #10-13
Published by Valiant
$14.99
Valiant’s first big event, The Harbinger war is upon us. When Bloodshot attacks the PRS, all hell breaks loose. The Harbinger children (who have all sorts of special abilities) who were being help captive, escape into the general population. A large group goes into nearby Vegas and takes over a hotel, along with the Harbinger renegades from the proper Harbinger book. In this trade, another group escapes and travels with Bloodshot. Not only trying to evade the PRS who are hunting them down, but the Harbinger Foundation as well. They try to make there way to Vegas to join up with the other escaped group, but even though the young group he travels which thinks him to be their hero, Bloodshot does not realize that he has had a massive impact on these kids lives before, and not all of them who escaped may want his help, or call him ally. Bloodshot has been one of my favorite books since the Valiant relaunch because he is a very interesting character. Not even he knows his true history, because of all the reprogramming done to him over the years. Duane Swierczynski does a great job during this event showing his side of the tale, and Barry Kitson does a great job on the art duties. Not really a jumping on point, but more a recommendation to catch up on this series to this point.

Complete Golden Age Airboy And Valkyrie HC
Complete Golden Age Airboy And Valkyrie HC

Picked by @ChrisCCL
Complete Golden Age Airboy And Valkyrie HC
Published by Canton Street Press
$24.99
First, I want to thank Canton Street Press for supplying me a copy of this book. As many of you know, I’m a fan of Golden Age material and especially Golden Age material that is reprinted for a new generation. Canton Street Press is a relatively new company and as they say on their website, “specializes in quality restorations of long out-of-print books of historical significance”. There’s no doubt that Airboy is one of those comics. Airboy was first published in Air Fighters Comics Vol. 1 #2 (November 1942) and was created by writers Charles Biro and Dick Wood and artist Al Camy. But as the title says, “Airboy AND Valkyrie”, so this books collects all the Golden Age appearances of the villainess – and later heroine. After reading the stories she reminds me of several women featured in Will Eisner’s The Spirit, particularly Sand Saref and Silk Satin. Not only is she dangerous, but she has dangerous curves and could give The Phantom Lady a run for her money in a cleavage contest.
The book, itself, is very affordable at $25 and the restiration and presentation is top notch. I only have one small complaint – the table of contents does not include the month and year of the comics collected in this book. Therefore, I have added them here for reference:

Air Fighters Vol. 2 #2 Airboy Meets Valkrie – November 1943
Air Fighters Vol. 2 #7 The Dath Lights – April 1944
Air Fighters Vol. 1 #12 Misery! – September 1943
Airboy Vol. 2 #12 The Return Of Misery! – January 1946
Airboy Vol. 3 #6 An American Legend – July 1946
Airboy Vol. 3 #12 The Wind of Battle – January 1947
Airboy Vol. 4 #10 Valkrie’s Viking Flying Club – November 1947
Airboy Vol. 9 #2 Valkrie Strikes Again – March 1952

With a quick glance it looks like the story “Misery” is out of place, but really if it was not included then “The Return Of Misery!” wouldn’t make much sense, hence it is included for continuity sake, but interestingly, it does not contain Valkrie. I hope CSP will be able to reprint the entire Airboy series in thicker editions similar to Marvel’s Masterworks, but I understand if there isn’t a market for them. If you are interested pick up this hardcover and be sure to check out other offerings from Canton Street Press including the complete Canteen Kate from Matt Baker.

I’ll make this recommendation very simple – if you haven’t picked up Wonder Woman yet – do it now. For only a buck you can experience, what is now my favorite book of DC’s New 52. What artist Cliff Chiang and writer Brian Azzarello are doing is nothing short of spectacular. What’s nice is that it doesn’t feel like a “superhero” book because it intertwines with Greek mythology and the JLA stays out of it. In fact, it’s difficult to pinpoint just where in DC continuity this takes place, which is fine by me. 5 Stars!

It’s that time of year again – time for another Marvel Cinematic Universe Movie. That movie is Thor: The Dark World and with it comes this easy to read trade. You can plainly see why they first two min-series are collected but why God Of Thunder #13? That’s because it features the Dark Elves who play an integral part in the Dark World film. As with Wonder Woman above, the God Of Thunder series by writer Jason Aaron and artist Ron Garney is one of the best books on the market and one that’s at the top of my “to read” pile every month. If you’re interested in catching up, you can do so by picking up the first two collected editions of God of Thunder: Vol 1. God Butcher and Vol. 2 Godbomb.

Robert Kirkman and Skybound team up with the Hero Initiative to present 100 all new covers envisioning the horrors of the bestselling The Walking Dead, $12.99; LTD ED HC $24.99
The Hero Initiative’s 100 Project series, where the non-profit has 100 artists provide their own interpretation of a specific landmark title, has always been a great way to indulge in a good sampling of various artists’ work, dig on various interpretations of your favorite characters, and feel good about yourself knowing the hard earned money you’re dropping is going to a worthy cause. The series has honored such titles as Marvel’s Ultimate Spider-Man, The Hulk, Wolverine, and The New Avengers, DC’s Justice League of America, and even Archie. Now, they are doing it all over again for Image’s The Walking Dead. Featuring everyone from Fred Hembeck to Jeff Lemire to Fiona Staples to Rich Koslowski, there is something for every fan in here. Offering the book in two flavors – trade paperback and hardcover – also means there’s a good chance it’ll fit into most anyone’s budget.

Shazam! Vol. 1 HC (DC Comics)
Collects Justice League #7-11, #0, #14-16 and #18-21, $24.99
SHAZAM!! That’s the first thing that probably goes through your head whenever you see a brand new Captain Marvel book (or in this case, Shazam). Despite my love for golden age characters and especially the Big Red Cheese, this book deserves your attention because of the creators, Geoff Johns and Gary Frank. Shazam plays directly to the type of story that Geoff Johns has excelled at so much in the past. Shazam is a beloved character that hasn’t had very many exciting things done with him in a long time. Johns has proven time after time that these “revitalization” type of stories centered around characters that have been lost to the depths of the long box are exactly where he thrives as a writer. Add Gary Frank to that magical formula and you’ve got a truly exciting creative team that has proven on two separate occasions (previously on Action Comics and Batman Earth One) that when they get together, great things happen. Pick this book up. I’m confident that you’ll dig it.

Picked by @CaptDS9E
Justice League Vol. 3: Throne Of Atlantis HC (DC Comics)
Collects Justice League #13-17 and Aquaman #15-16, $24.99
Aquaman is one of my favorite books since the DC relaunch, and Justicle League was not that great. However both books crossed over for this big Aquaman event called Throne of Atlantis written by the regular writer on both series Geoff Johns. This is when the Justice League finally found it’s footing, and I started to really enjoy it. As Arthur is trying to figure out about a mysterious series of events that have gone on in his series, The Underwater city of Atlantis led by Ocean Master launches a massive attack on many of the biggest cities in the DC universe. So the Justice League only has one course of action, and that is to go on the attack , or risk the populations of these cities being killed. However like most big events, someone has set this madness in motion for a plan that none of the major parties knows about. It leads to revelations that could change Arthur and his place with Atlantis. Not to mention changes in the Justice League as well, as they realize it may be time to expand it’s roster, which is one of my favorite parts of this story arc. Add in Ivan Reis taking over art duties on Justice League, and Paul Pelleteir on Aquaman, and I would recommend this for the art alone. Really great work by them, but a highly enjoyable read overall as well.

Picked by @ReverendLove
Legends Of The Dark Knight: Jim Aparo Vol. 2 HC (DC Comics)
Collects The Brave And The Bold #123-145 and #147-151, $49.99
Growing up in the early 70’s, I was lucky enough to have been around for Jim Aparo’s fabulous work on “the Brave and the Bold” and other titles from “Aquaman” to “Adventure Comics” which featured his legendary run on “the Spectre”. But like many from my generation, I was a die hard Batman fan and found Mr. Aparo’s long run on “the Brave and the Bold” unequalled in quality and artistic execution.
The first book in this series covered some of my favourite Aparo stories in the run but this volume still has many gems although towards the end, we begin to stray into the latter Aparo years during which he adopted a simpler style that I found to be a bit wanting. This book starts in the later years of the “Early Aparo” period and these stories still have that great level of detail and solid composition that we’d come to expect from the pen of Aparo. One of my favourite stories from this period is the tale from the Brave and the Bold #124 in which Jim Aparo injects himself into the DC Universe to battle terrorists and to help the Caped Crusader and Sgt. Rock save the day. The heroes make the world a safer place and all without realizing the involvement of Mr. Aparo or fellow DC creators from the book, Bob Haney and Murray Boltinoff. Haney was one of the bright lights at DC in the early 70’s with a prodigious output and a neat turn of phrase. He created some of my favourite characters in the DC universe, from Metamorpho to Eclipso and so many more in his three decades with DC Comics.
“The Brave and the Bold” was one of my favourite comics growing up with it’s stories of Batman and a guest or guest stars to help him with whatever menace the Dark Knight would be battling in that particular issue. This run features heroes from the Flash to Mr. Miracle to the Metal Men and many others, all of whom dovetail perfectly with the tactics and abilities of the Batman.
I know some will find the stories somewhat dated and simplistic, but they are a snapshot into the world I grew up in and the stories that inspired and entertained me for many happy hours and for all this joy, I have to simply say, “Thank you, Mr. Aparo and Mr. Haney”.

Picked by Shane
Star Trek The Original Topps Trading Card Series HC (Abrams ComicArts), $19.95
Most anyone who grew up in the 70s has fond memories of collecting Topps trading cards. These Topps card packs consisted of a few cards, usually one sticker and maybe a stick of gum, depending on the series. Kids would spend their allowance money buying pack after pack, hoping to eventually get a complete set of cards. Along with sports cards, Topps produced series’ ranging from Superman the movie and Jaws to such eclectic series’ as Charlie’s Angels and Grease. I still have a complete set of the original Star Wars cards from my youth. Now, I never had the Star Trek cards nor have I ever really seen any of them. That being said, I’m looking very forward to this book. This book reprints all 88 cards, front and back as well as the 22 stickers from the series. Here is a bit of trivia for you. There are no cards in the series that feature crew member Sulu, so included in this book are four brand new cards including two featuring Sulu. It is written by a husband and wife team very familiar with Star Trek, having written several books on the subject. Some of their works are Star Trek 101, The Magic of Tribbles and the Deep Space Nine Companion just to name a few. It looks like Paula M. Block and Terry J. Erdmann have put together a very nice package for the Trek fans out there.

I’ve been really fortunate over the past years. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting several comic book creators over drinks, dinner and even podcasts. I first met Skottie Young in 2006 when I sat in on a recording of the Around Comics podcast. I have to laugh it off now, but the guy was a piece of work. He was a little loud and a little obnoxious but Skottie was all 100% genuine when it came to his passion about comic books. You can see it in his work and you can hear it in his voice. It’s been fun watching his career grow and even becoming a breakout artist on the Oz series with Eric Shanower and Skottie’s own take on the Marvel Babies. Hell, my own LCS has its own Skottie Young POS display! I wish all the best to Skottie and if you get the chance go meet him at a Con near you, he truly is one of the great guys in the business.

DC Comics December 2013 Collected Editions

The Demon Matt Wagner
The Demon Matt Wagner

DC Comics may have put themselves into some hot water as of late, but they still manage to put out some decent classic collected editions.

Take for example Batman ’66: The TV stories. No doubt capitalizing on the current “revival” of sorts from Jeff Parker, these comics from BATMAN #53, 73, 121, 140, 169 and 171, and DETECTIVE COMICS #230, 346 and 359 were adapted into the TV show. We can only hope that the classic Adam West and Burt Ward campy adventures will be properly released someday.

Next up is The Demon: From The Darkness by Matt Wagner. This trade collects the 4-issue miniseries form 1987 and Wagner’s follow up Demon #22 from 1990. If you are a fan of Wagner then this will go nicely next to your Grendel Omnibus collection. Perhaps this will encourage DC to publish a complete Batman: Dark Moon Rising hardcover.

John’s Byrne’s epic continues in Superman: The Man Of Steel Volume 8. In this installment we get ACTION COMICS #598-600, SUPERMAN #16-18 and ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN #439-440. You would think that this run would one day get the hardcover omnibus treatment –  at least that’s what I’m holding out for. 

Green Lantern: Sector 2814 Volume 3 has me a bit stumped. I thought this trade paperback series was only collecting Dave Gibbon’s Green Lantern run, but it looks like it’s the Life and Times of Green Lantern Jon Stewart. I just wonder how many volumes this will go?
