Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! And Happy Festivus for the rest of us!

The Ghost of Christmas Past is Dan Didio!
He gives us reprints from days gone by, including solicits for March 2013 and classics due out Summer 2013 including The Captain Comet Archives Volume 1 and The Sandman Omnibus Volume 1 that collects #1-37 at over 1000 pages! There’s a ton to go over but I guarantee you’ll love all of the offerings.

The Ghost of Christmas Present is Peter Jackson!
Last night my awesome Sister-In-Law scored tickets to an advance viewing of The Hobbit in the super high frame rate! I can tell you that the visuals were incredible and I highly recommend that you see it even if you could care less about the Tolkien mythos!

The Ghost of Christmas Future is The Apocalypse!
OK, it’s not until December 21, but I won’t be podcasting a “live” show until January and I wanted to go over the X-Men Age Of Apocalypse Omnibus HC and let all of you know about another big collected edition – the Marvel NOW!

CCL Podcast #335 – Marvel NOW!…and LATER!

Last year at this time we were all talking about DC’s New52. This time all the rage is with Marvel and their “reboot” effort Marvel NOW! On today’s show I go over the titles that we know of so far and speculate just how Marvel may collect the monthly issues in either trade paperback or hardcover format. And just where does Spider-Man, Daredevil and Punisher fit into all of this?

I also go over the demise of the Marvel Premiere Classic Hardcover line. I can tell you that I’m very disappointed, but I understand business is business and if you take a look at the sales figures for these books, you can understand why Marvel is doing this. I hope that part of the program will continue on in their trade paperback Classic series. Some titles do very well in that format. For example, Deadpool Volume 7 is being released this week!

All that and more including an email from Australia on Joe Kubert, a quick announcement and overview of The Complete Flash Gordon Library Volume 1 – On the Planet Mongo (Titan Books) and a fun jab – and an agreement – with Rob Liefeld!
