Marvel Collected Editions March 2013 Solicitations

Marvel has released their March 2013 solicitations. After taking a glace at the Marvel NOW! Omnibus, I’m really not that surprised to see it. You’ll recall that DC did their Omnibus of the New 52 #1′s, and that sold very well, so I was expecting Marvel to follow suit.

Wolverine is all about monthly and collected editions just in time for the new Wolverine movie. I talked about the Adamantium Collection shortly after it was announced the the NYCC . I’ll be passing on this because I own all the major work (BWS, FM and Origin) in other forms. But if you missed out on the Wolverine Omnibus the first time around, you may want to pick this up.

Finally, do yourself a favor and pick up the Rockett Raccoon & Groot book. You won’t be disappointed.

What are you getting?

Elizabeth’s Canvas
Mark Waid, Gregg Hurwitz, Harlan Ellison, Chris Ryall, Scott Tipton, Jud Meyers (w) • David Messina, Claudia Balboni, Ryan Benjamin, Sara Pichelli, Elena Casagrande, Todd Harris (a) • Jenny Frison (c)
Fighting cancer isn’t just a struggle of the body. It’s also a fight with the heart, and the soul, and the spirit. The non-profit organization Elizabeth’s Canvas has been helping with that struggle by providing cancer patients, survivors, and their family members with art, photography, dance, and writing classes, at no charge, so that they can better cope with their symptoms and improve their well-being. Elizabeth’s Canvas classes are offered inside and outside hospitals, and are grounded in the belief that the creative process can strengthen the spirit and empower the mind.
Now, Elizabeth’s Canvas, IDW Publishing and Blastoff have come together to create this graphic novel, in which comic creators from across the industry interview the people behind the struggle with cancer — the patients, the nurses, the survivors, the researchers – and tell their stories, tales of defiance, perseverance, dedication and triumph.  All proceeds from the sale of the graphic novel will go to further fund and grow Elizabeth’s Canvas’ efforts.

With special effects and a climactic ending only the Third Reich could deliver, Iron Sky is an action packed ride from start to finish.

DC Comics Collected Editions March 2013 Solicitations

DC Comics has released their March 2013 solicitations. Man, there’s a lot here, let’s get to it:

  • Absolute Blackest Night – The first (unofficial) solicit of this book did not include Green Lantern #43-48 and #50-52. DC got the message and will now publish a complete collection of the GL epic.
  • Batman Noir: Eduardo Risso Deluxe Edition HC – Without a careful eye, you may not notice that this will include the Batman serial from Wednesday Comics #1-12. I believe this is the first collected edition besides the Wednesday Comics Hardcover to do so.
  • The Authority by Warren Ellis Volume 1 HC – If you missed out on the Absolute, now is a perfect time to read up on one of the best series ever. Expect Volume 2 soon after this is released.
