6 Collected Editions Worthy Of Your Attention #12

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

The Unauthorized Tarzan HC by Joe Gill and Sam Glanzman (Dark Horse)

The Unauthorized Tarzan HC by Joe Gill and Sam Glanzman (Dark Horse)
Way back in the glory days of Charlton Comics, a little known “scandal” went down. Like any good publishing company of that time, Charlton Comics saw an opportunity to use one of pop culture’s most popular adventure heroes (Tarzan) for their own financial gain. Charlton knew that the freedom granted them by utilizing a character in the “public domain”, they could tell the stories that they wanted to with little to no repercussion from the creators of characters like Tarzan. Charlton recruited Captain Atom creator, Joe Gill and popular war comics illustrator, Sam Glanzman to craft all new stories of Lord Greystoke. However, Charlton made a crucial mistake in their plans to make Tarzan a top selling comic. At that time in history, Tarzan wasn’t in the “public domain”. After only for issues, Charlton was ordered to cease publication of their all new Tarzan series and most of the remaining issues were destroyed. Both Joe Gill and Sam Glanzman would go on to other work, but never again were those “illegal” Tarzan stories reprinted… until now that is. Thanks to  Dark Horse Comics, they’ve collected these four issues in a handsome hardcover edition. These stories can finally be shared with an all new generation of Tarzan fans. Even though Tarzan is now in the public domain, this Dark Horse reprint has been given the blessing of the Burroughs estate and will see print for the first time since it’s initial release from Charlton. Now wait… I know that $29.99 sounds like a lot of money, especially for a four issue run of comics, so Dark Horse has tossed in some additional Sam Glanzman goodness by including material from Glanzman’s Tarzan strip-art as well. Lastly, for the true Tarzan collector, Dark Horse is offering a Limited Edition (250 copies) for $59.99 featuring a “tip-in” signed by Sam Glanzman (you can get this while they last at www.instocktrades.com). I can’t imagine that this one will stay in print for very long, so snatch this up while you can.

Deadpool Classic Vol. 8 TPB (Marvel)

Picked by @Dief88
Deadpool Classic Vol. 8 TPB (Marvel)
You have to admire the commitment Marvel has shown to publishing this line; I think Deadpool Classic has the most volumes of any Marvel Classic TPB series to date. This volume holds a particularly special place in my heart, though, because it collects the first issues of Deadpool that I ever read. Although it’s technically the eighth volume of the series, this book actually stands perfectly well on its own, since it collects writer Frank Tieri’s entire run on the title. The story begins as a follow-up to Tieri’s contemporaneous run on Wolverine (which, sadly, has never been fully collected), but evolves into the best character study of Deadpool since the series’ early issues. I’ve gone back to these issues many times over the years, and I look forward to now having them on my bookshelf for years to come.

Invincible Iron Man Vol. 10: Long Way Down TPB (Marvel)
Invincible Iron Man Vol. 10: Long Way Down TPB (Marvel)

Picked by Shane
Invincible Iron Man Vol. 10: Long Way Down TPB (Marvel)
Old Shellhead has always been my favorite Marvel character. Like DC’s Batman, he is an ordinary man with extraordinary intellect and A LOT of money. He makes you feel like someone with the right brains, money and wherewithal could actually become a superhero. I have every single floppy of his solo series from issue #1 to the end of the Invincible Iron Man run. This story arc, collecting issues 516-520 comes just before the final one of the series and the beginning of Marvel Now Iron Man. I have really enjoyed Matt Fraction’s runs on Iron Man and my other favorite Marvel hero, Thor. This story pretty much has it all. Tony Stark is still dealing with the aftermath of getting drunk for the first time in years. The Government is against him, the super villain team of the Mandarin, Ezekiel Stane and Justine Hammer are against him, almost everyone is against him. Iron Man is shut down by Hammer, but a new Iron Man has emerges while Mandarin works on his plan for world domination. You get lots of action and intrigue and a cliffhanger ending that sets up the final act of Invincible Iron Man. A must read!

Leonard Starr's Mary Perkins On Stage Volume 11 TP (Classic Comics Press)
Leonard Starr’s Mary Perkins On Stage Volume 11 TP (Classic Comics Press)

Picked by @ChrisCCL
Leonard Starr’s Mary Perkins On Stage Volume 11 TP (Classic Comics Press)
Often overlooked in the world of comics is the prolific artist and writer Leonard Starr. His long history includes the Golden Age Human Torch and Sub-Mariner, a stop at EC Comcis and Marvel and even as a developer for the 1980′s classic animated Thundercats. But he is most known for Mary Perkins, On Stage; a strip he created that ran from February, 1957 to September 9, 1979. It was a soap opera that blended in adventure and humor. Starr won the National Cartoonists Society’s Story Comic Strip Award in 1960 and 1963, and the Reuben Award in 1965. Charles Pelto and his Classic Comics Press has been putting together collected editions of the strip and is now on Volume 11. For more, I interviewed, Mr. Pelto for Podcast #300 back in 2011.

Superman: The Death and Return of Superman Omnibus HC (DC Comics)
Superman: The Death and Return of Superman Omnibus HC (DC Comics)

Superman: The Death and Return of Superman Omnibus HC (DC Comics)
He’s the most iconic superhero ever – and now his is dead.
Back in 1988, when the Death Of Superman happened, the whole world reflected. It was covered on the nightly news and in Time magazine. There were even vigils held at comic book stores. Sales of the event soared and it was critiqued left and right. Since then it has become an evergreen for DC Comics. It’s been reprinted a few different times; mostly the main story in trade paperback which is Action Comics 684; Adventures of Superman 497; Justice League of America 69; Superman vol. 2, 74-75; Superman: The Man of Steel 18-19; one page each from Action Comics 683, Adventures of Superman 496, Superman 73, and Superman: The Man of Steel 17. But that’s not all, two other stroylines made it a trilogy: World Without a Superman and The Return of Superman. In 2007 all three were collected in The Death and Return of Superman Omnibus, but now DC has expanded the story even more to include the full issues of Action Comics 683, Adventures of Superman 496, Superman 73, and Superman: The Man of Steel 17 and not just the one page excerpts that were previously collected. So to wrap it all up – this is the one complete volume.
Collects Superman: The Man Of Steel #17-26, Superman #73-82, Adventures Of Superman #496-505, Action Comics #683-691, Justice League America #69, Superman: The Legacy Of Superman #1 And Green Lantern #46, 1,008 pages, $99,99

Wonder Woman: The Amazon Princess Archives Volume 1 HC (DC Comics)
Wonder Woman: The Amazon Princess Archives Volume 1 HC (DC Comics)

Wonder Woman: The Amazon Princess Archives Volume 1 HC (DC Comics)
As one looks at where DC Comics deems to start the Silver Age of Comics, the old argument is between Martian Manhunter (J’onn J’onzz) in Detective Comics #225 from November 1955 and Flash (Barry Allen) in Showcase #4 from October 1956. I tend to go with The Flash. Superman entered the Silver age with Action Comics #241, June 1958 and Superman #122, July 1958. But Batman was late to the game: Detective Comics #27, May 1964 and Batman #164, June 1964.
DC has collected the Silver Age Wonder Woman in four Showcase Presents volumes, to date, but this is the first time these adventures have been collected as an Archive Edition. The significance of her first Silver Age story (Wonder Woman #98, May 1958) is that it the original artist, Harry G. Peter was replaced by Ross Andru and Mike Esposito. As a point if fact, Wonder Woman ended her run in Sensation Comics #73, January 1948.

IDW to publish newspaper adventures of DC’s Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman

SUPERMAN: THE SILVER AGE NEWSPAPER DAILIES, VOL. 1: 1958-1961
SUPERMAN: THE SILVER AGE NEWSPAPER DAILIES, VOL. 1: 1958-1961

Media Release – IDW’s Library of American Comics and DC Entertainment proudly announce the beginning of a new partnership to reprint some of the rarest DC Comics stories — the Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman newspaper strips.

“We’re thrilled to announce a comprehensive publishing program for these historic strips,” said Greg Goldstein, IDW President and COO. “The Library of American Comics is the premier home for archival newspaper strips and this new partnership with DC Entertainment further cements the imprint’s reputation as second to none.”

At the same time that Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman became the world’s most famous and recognizable superheroes in comic books in the 1940s and beyond, they also starred in runs of newspaper comic strips, most of which have not been seen since they first appeared.

The Man of Steel’s newspaper adventures ran for more than 25 years, from 1939 until 1966. Only about 10% of these strips have ever been reprinted. The complete comics will be released in three sub-sets, starting with The Silver Age, then The Atomic Age, and finally, The Golden Age. The black-and-white daily and color Sunday strips contained distinct storylines and will be released in separate, concurrent, series of deluxe hardcovers.

The line kicks off this July with SUPERMAN: THE SILVER AGE NEWSPAPER DAILIES, VOL. 1: 1958-1961. Fans can look forward to nearly 800 strips featuring classic artwork by Curt Swan, Wayne Boring, and Stan Kaye. While most of the stories from the Atomic Age and Golden Age were original and completely different from the comic books, under Mort Weisinger’s editorship in the late 1950s Silver Age stories, Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel was brought in to script adaptations of then-current comic book tales.

“It’s like discovering an entire alternate universe of famous Silver Age comic book stories,” said Dean Mullaney, LOAC Creative Director who’s editing and designing the series. “It’s better than an imaginary story—it’s Jerry Siegel doing a remake of his classic Superman’s Return to Krypton! …it’s Curt Swan, not Al Plastino, drawing The Menace of Metallo. Superman fans might want to consider these strips as taking place on a brand new world— Earth-N for Newspapers!”

Covers for each book are being specially created by Pete Poplaski to evoke the look and style of the times; Volume One is an homage to Curt Swan’s art and Ira Schnapp’s lettering design. Tom DeHaven, author of the novel It’s Superman!, is writing the foreword, and the introductions are by Sidney Friedfertig.

Additional details on the Sunday strip books as well as the Batman and Wonder Woman collections will follow, but eager fans should begin watching the skies in July!

CCL Podcast #353 – Why Flash Comics Is The Greatest Golden Age Comic Book Ever

When it comes to listing the BEST of anything – ANYTHING is capable of being the best. That’s why when I set out to prove to all of you that Flash Comics, 104 issues between January 1940 and February 1949, was the best Golden Age comic ever put together, I had to put some weight behind it – how long-lasting are these Golden Age characters and are even relevant today in DC’s New 52. The characters from Flash Comics: Flash, Hawkman, and Black Canary give us that. Also taken into account was the amount of reprinted material. There’s a strong case for All-America Comics, which of course gave us Green Lantern, Doctor Fate, Hour-Man, the Spectre, and the Sandman, but with my criteria, it comes up a little short.
Oh and I do give reasons why Action Comics, Detective Comics and Adventure Comics don’t quite make my cut.
Lastly, keep in mind that this is all in good fun, so take this whole podcast with a grain of salt – please.

Cheers!

6 Collected Editions Worthy Of Your Attention #3

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

Picked by @ChrisCampbell8
Batwoman Vol. 1: Hydrology (DC Comics)
With the New52 over a year old, we have begun getting softcover collections of the volumes originally released in hardcover. With stunning art from J.H. Williams, it was no surprise that Batwoman originally received the hardcover treatment. No longer working with Greg Rucka on the character, Williams has infused Gotham with a dose of the paranormal and the bizarre. Williams continues his alternating artistic styles in this book, and if you can’t tell from my comments, this is one of the prettier books to come out in a while. A strong recommendation for art lovers and those that can’t get their fill of the Bat universe.

Captain America By Ed Brubaker Vol. 4 Premiere HC (Marvel)

Picked by @adambesenyodi
Captain America by Ed Brubaker – Volume 4 (Marvel)
Here’s where the story ends. Ed Brubaker’s career-defining run on Captain America has come to an end. During his time on the title, Brubaker resurrected Bucky, killed Steve Rogers, and returned Captain America to the A-list of Marvel titles in the process. Although the first four issues collected here are co-written by Cullen Bunn, this collection can be recommended on the final issue alone: It’s just Brubaker and artist Steve Epting back together for a final go-round with the Star-Spangled Avenger. The perfect bookend to a historic run.

Fables Vol. 18: Cubs In Toyland TP (DC Comics )
While my weekly pull list dwindles in favor of collected editions, the comic at the top of my read list is what keeps me going back for monthlies. I LOVE Fables. It has been consistently good since the beginning and since I started it monthly, I can’t seem to transition to trades with this one. I wouldn’t be able to wait that long. While there have been dark story line in Fables over the years, this one in particular was very dark and nasty and felt a little like a twisted version of the old Rankin Bass stop motion holiday specials. I highly recommend it and any of the past editions of Fables.

Picked by @Dief88
Generation X Classic Vol. 2 TPB (Marvel)
Generation X was one of the few really good superhero comics to come out of Marvel in the 1990s, and it’s great to see the company releasing a second volume collecting the early exploits of this team of young mutants. Picking up after the series’ brief hiatus during the “Age of Apocalypse” crossover, these issues pit the team (including new member Mondo) against Omega Red, Emma Frost’s sister Cordelia, and recurring nemesis Emplate. Continuing Scott Lobdell’s nearly three-year run on the title, this volume features artwork by Chris Bachalo, Tom Grummett, Bill Sienkiewicz, and Ashley Wood, among others.

The One Trick Rip-Off + Deep-Cuts HC by Paul Pope (Image)

Picked by @AndrewJTom
The One Trick Rip-Off + Deep-Cuts HC by Paul Pope (Image)
For this week’s recommendation I just have one thing to say about it… “Paul Pope”.
That name alone should be enough to tell you that this is a quality book; but for those that need a little more, know this. One Trick Rip-off is a story that was originally published by Pope back in 1997. This heist story takes place in L.A. revolving around two gang members that need to pull off one last heist to set themselves up for life. Included in this volume along with the title story are what is referred to as “Deep Cuts”. The Deep Cuts are various stories that were never (or rarely) printed during Pope’s adventures traveling abroad in the 1990′s. These stories include a manga that Pope did called “Supertrouble” which is printed here domestically for the first time. As if all of this Paul Pope goodness wasn’t enough, Pope has recruited Jamie Grant (All-Star Superman) to lay down color on One Trick Rip-off for the very first time. At $29.99, this is a book that every Paul Pope fan needs to have in their collection.

Back Issue #62 – Superman in the Bronze Age (Twomorrows Publishing)

Picked by @ChrisCCL
Back Issue #62 – Superman in the Bronze Age (Twomorrows Publishing), $8.95
To be very clear, there is no better place to find insight and commentary on comic book history then the books and magazines coming out of TwoMorrows Publishing. Back Issue focuses on the Bronze Age of comics, which is defined here, by editor Michael Eury as comics printed from 1970-1989. This was an of change for the Man Of Steel. He finally grew out of “boy scout” image to take on more ruthless and evil villains in the comics, TV cartoons and the movies. This particular issue covers very first mini-series in comics, “World Of Krypton” from John Byrne and Mike Mignola and also provides insight to the, now classic, Alan Moore “Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?”. You can also find a two-page rundown of Bronze Age Superman tales that have been reprinted in trades and hardcovers tabulated by yours truly!

Now it’s your turn. What books that came out this week do you recommend? Take a look at the sidebar to see this weeks collected edition releases.
