6 Collected Editions Worthy Of Your Attention #29

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), Joey Nazzari (@CaptDS9E), Wallace Ryan (@ReverendLove) and I (@ChrisCCL) are sharing some comic book collected editions, reprints and/or graphic novels released this week that you may be interested in.

Willard Mullin's Golden Age Of Baseball Drawings 1934-1972 HC (Fantagraphics)

Picked by @AndrewJTom
Willard Mullin’s Golden Age Of Baseball Drawings 1934-1972 HC (Fantagraphics), $29.99
I just want to throw this one out there for you all to see. Otherwise, I can totally see how this book will go unnoticed by the masses. To be perfectly honest, I have little to “no” idea what is in the body of this 200 page book. But what I DO know is this… Fantagraphics publishes REALLY high quality books, Willard Mullins was a FANTASTIC cartoonist who focused on sports (primarily baseball). Charles Shultz respected Mullins so much that Lucy once claimed she was gonna’ sue Willard Mullins in a Peanuts strip. The last thing that I “know” about this book is that if all of you baseball fans out there order this book from my LCS, they’ll probably run out and I’ll have to order one and practice a seldom used skill… patience.

Mark Schultz’s Xenozoic Complete TP (New Printing) (Flesk Publications)

Mark Schultz’s Xenozoic Complete TP (New Printing) (Flesk Publications), $39.95
This is a special week for me. It’s not because I get to write about a book that I am especially excited about. It’s because I have the opportunity to share my love for a book with all of you; and (thanks to a new printing with an all new cover) you now have the chance to experience this book for yourselves. The book I’m talking about is Xenozoic by Mark Schultz. Xenozoic reprints the entirety of Mark Schultz creator owned series Xenozoic Tales (also known as Cadillacs and Dinosaurs). I’m not gonna’ run down the story synopsis for you (you can go over to www.instocktrades.com and read it in the solicit). I will tell you that in this tome you’ll experience something that we rarely see in a cartoonist. You’ll see Mark Schultz grow as a storyteller and as an artist. If you compare the first and last page of this book, you’ll see the strides that Mark has made during his run on the series. And make no mistake, this is some of the most beautiful art you will see on the printed page. The biggest error one could make in the next few months is to let this book go out of print without procuring a copy for yourself. I was fortunate enough to score a first printing of this book a few years ago, but soon afterward, it was out of print and unavailable. I was no longer able to recommend this to any of my friends (until now). In addition, IDW will be releasing a Mark Schultz Xenozoic Tales Artist Edition in the next few months. But if you want to enjoy Mark’s stories and craftsmanship in a more economical format, you should definitely pick this up. Flesk has made a wise decision by making this book available again on the dawn of IDW’s Mark Schultz Artist Edition. Lastly, I’ll leave you with this bit of wisdom… I believe it was Vince Bonavoglia who once said that the measure of an artist is directly in correlation to how well they draw a dinosaur. Mark Schultz draws one heckuva’ nice lookin’ dinosaur.

Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan: The Sunday Comics 1931-1933 HC (Dark Horse)
Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan: The Sunday Comics 1931-1933 HC (Dark Horse)

Picked by @ReverendLove
Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan: The Sunday Comics 1931-1933 HC (Dark Horse)
Collects every Tarzan Sunday strip from September 1931 – September 1933, $125.00
When it comes to the comic strip, anything with the legendary Hal Foster’s name attached to it, is worth buying! This week, Dark Horse has put together for us a beautiful over-sized collection of Foster’s Sunday strips from 1931 to 1933 and it is one book that I will be, without a doubt, buying this week.
Now, regular fans of Foster may find his early material disappointing when compared to his later work on Prince Valiant but I have always been a fan of the process as much as the product and actually really enjoy seeing the first steps of a future master of the art form. Foster’s figures and faces, even with his early work, are solidly constructed and sizzle with beauty and grace that few in the comic strip business could match.
Hal Foster began illustrating the weekly Tarzan in 1929 and did so for only 7 months before he was replaced by Rex Mason. Almost two years later, Foster returned and took the reins of the Tarzan Sunday colour strip in 1931 and continued on until May of 1937 when he was replaced by Burne Hogarth. Foster had reportedly grew weary of working on other people’s characters and set to creating his own strip, the now classic Prince Valiant which began a few months before he was relieved of his Tarzan duties. If there is any down side to this fabulous tome of Foster’s work, it’s the $125 price tag which may scare away the novice collector…but not myself!
When it comes to comic strips…there are few adventure strip artists as talented and skilled as Hal Foster.

Superman: The Silver Age Newspaper Dailies, Vol. 1: 1958 - 1961 HC (IDW)
Superman: The Silver Age Newspaper Dailies, Vol. 1: 1958 – 1961 HC (IDW)

Superman: The Silver Age Newspaper Dailies, Vol. 1: 1958 – 1961 HC (IDW)
Collects almost 800 strips from December 15, 1958 – July 1, 1961, $49.99
The summer sun was as oppressive as Superman’s heat vision today as I walked into my local comic book shop and found the first volume of Superman: the Silver Age Dailies 1959-1961 from IDW’s Library of American Comics waiting for me. Right from the start, I was smitten.
I loved the brightly coloured Swanesque art that adorned the cover with it’s strong Silver Age design vocabulary. I sat down with the book in hand, began to peruse the opening chapter and found myself lost in a simpler time of heroes and their wild deeds of daring-do! I have always been a huge fan of Curt Swan, considered by most to be the penultimate Superman artist, and this book, in that regard, will not disappoint the seasoned Swan-meister! They have the innocent quality and corniness as the Superman comics that I loved as a kid and it was a sheer joy to experience that feeling all over again! It’s classic Swan!
Swan was replaced on the dailies by the quirky and campy Wayne Boring, who’d become famous with his barrel chested Superman. I myself, don’t mind Boring’s style but there are a lot of Superman fans out there who don’t share my affection for this particular manifestation of the Man of Steel. I think this book is well worth the read and at only $49.99…it’s a steal!!!
All things considered, Superman: the Silver Age Dailies 1959-1961 is yet another fine addition to the award-winning Library of American Comics label and is one book that this very night, will find its own Fortress of Solitude on my shelves.

Kevin Keller Volume 2 Drive Me Crazy TP (Archie Comics Publications)
Kevin Keller Volume 2 Drive Me Crazy TP (Archie Comics Publications)

Picked by @adambesenyodi
Kevin Keller Volume 2 Drive Me Crazy TP (Archie Comics Publications)
Collects Kevin Keller #5-8, $11.99
The gang from Riverdale never appealed to me growing up, and I never read an Archie comic before Kevin Keller came along. I admit I initially checked out the character because my oldest son is gay and when stories like this get buzz I tend to take notice, but the stories Dan Parent has been creating with Kevin Keller are so enjoyable I have continued to read the comic long after that early hype pulled me in. I’m always happy to see characters like Young Avengers’ Wiccan and Hulkling, and Alpha Flight’s Northstar show up on the pages of my Marvel comics, but there is something to be said for a gay character headlining his own book the way Kevin Keller is. And for that character to not be a superhero, for him to be so ordinary (inasmuch as the denizens of Riverdale High School can be considered ordinary), is what makes the book’s success so remarkable. The issues collected here include stories about first cars, first dates, and teenagers being inspired by their heroes (in this case, Kevin by Star Trek’s George Takei). There is as much value in straight kids picking up a mainstream comic and seeing Kevin Keller among the personalities, as there is value in gay teens being able to find a character that reflects who they are on the pages. That Parent has crafted a character that is just so inherently likable simply makes it all the more satisfying.

Capote In Kansas HC (Oni Press)
Capote In Kansas HC (Oni Press)

Capote In Kansas HC (Oni Press), $19.99
What Ande Parks pulls off with his 2005 Capote In Kansas graphic novel (referred to as “a drawn novel” on the cover) is a perfect echo of what Truman Capote did with In Cold Blood forty years earlier: crafting a riveting nonfiction (and in Parks’ case, graphic) novel. Fictionalizing Capote’s trip to Kansas to research the Clutter Murders for what would become In Cold Blood, Parks projects his own version of Capote’s experience. While using the specter of one of the victims in the storytelling ends up diminishing the actual contributions his childhood friend Harper Lee likely made in the journey Capote took researching In Cold Blood, it’s the juxtaposition of Capote’s New York socialite persona trying to insinuate himself into small town Middle America that’s most compelling. Although I prefer artist Chris Samnee’s work elsewhere more so than here (particularly his runs on Queen & Country, Daredevil, and Thor, The Mighty Avenger), his stark black and white approach is a good fit for the story at hand, reprinted here in hardcover format by Oni.

Avengers: Heavy Metal TP (Marvel)
Avengers: Heavy Metal TP (Marvel)

Picked by @Dief88
Avengers: Heavy Metal TP (Marvel)
Collects Avengers (1963) #286-293, $24.99
In a way, Roger Stern is like Marvel’s forgotten son of the 1980s. The writer had long tenures on several prominent series, including Amazing Spider-Man and Avengers, but for the longest time, there were only a few scattered collections of his work. One of those was the classic Avengers: Under Siege, collecting Avengers #270-277. It’s only in the last year or so, though, that we’ve seen collections of the issues that came immediately after that story, and Avengers: Heavy Metal is the final book in that series (following Avengers: Assault on Olympus, published in 2011). In these issues, Stern completes his run and passes the reigns over to writers Ralph Macchio and Walt Simonson (yes, that’s Simonson writing, not drawing!), with the incomparable John Buscema on art. Although the cast of characters may not be comprised of the A-listers we’ve grown accustomed to seeing in current takes on the Avengers, this book is worth a look just to see how other writers attempted to pick up where Stern left off with his still-celebrated creative run.

and now for something completely different…

Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Blu-Ray DVD (Warner Home Video and DC Comics)
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Blu-Ray DVD (Warner Home Video and DC Comics)

Picked by @CaptDS9E
Justice League: The Flashpoint Paradox Blu-Ray DVD (Warner Home Video and DC Comics), $24.98
In a first for DC’s animated division, they decided to make a feature based on a very recent event. Flashpoint was the story which transitioned the old DC to the new 52. I really enjoyed the comic series, so I was very interested how they would take a story that spanned a miniseries, and a ton of spin-off books into one feature. Barry Allen AKA The Flash wakes in an alternate timeline where he is no longer the Flash. He has no powers, his mother is alive, and the entire planet is different from how he remembers. Atlantis and Themiscyra are at war, most of Europe lies in ruins, parts of the world are ruled by other super beings, there is no Superman, Batman is not the same man, and no one knows who the Flash is. This is just the tip of the iceberg, as everything is turned upside down. Barry needs to find out what is going on, and who caused this. He joins up with this alternate Batman and Cyborg to create a group of super beings to stop the new worlds destruction, and to get things back to the way they should be. I really enjoyed the film as it holds nothing back that was in the comics. Parts of it are very brutal, and it is one of the more adult of the DC animated features. I enjoyed that they tried to stick as much stuff in there as possible, but it’s also the one small issue with the film. Some of the stuff they could have cut, and it would not have been missed. Some other things would really have been great if more expanded upon, or added from the comics. However I really enjoyed it, and it put my fears to rest on using a work that is very recent. Stay tuned afterwards for a tease for the next animated film JL: War based on the first arc on the New 52 Justice League.

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.

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)

Picked by @AndrewJTom
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.
Collects Charlton’s Jungle Tales of Tarzan #1-4, $29.99; Limited Edition, $59.99

Deadpool Classic Vol. 8 TPB (Marvel)
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.
Collects Deadpool #57-64, $24.99

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!
Collects Invincible Iron Man #516-520, $16.99

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.
Collects Wonder Woman #98-110, $75.00

Welcome to my 8 Year Anniversary Show! It’s hard to believe that I’ve been doing this for so long — and in 350 shows, to boot!
Of course I owe the success of this blog and podcast to you the reader and listener. I thank you very much!

As with past milestone shows, I wanted to do something special so for the first time I’m covering Jack Kirby (hard to believe I haven’t done so before). But instead of focusing on a long career retrospective of his work from reprints, I am taking a view into the future by listing upcoming collected editions of some of Jack’s greatest and sometimes very hard to find comics.

Also I comment on the Dark Horse’s $125.00 reprint of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ Tarzan: The Sunday Comics 1931-1933 HC, TwoMorrows Publishing’s American Comic Book Chronicles and the sudden return of the Marvel Premiere Classic editions with Volume 107 – X-Force: Phalanx Covenant.

Cheers!

By now you’ve probably heard that Joe Kubert passed away. I admit that I didn’t start fully realizing his greatness until his work was reprinted in the Archives from both DC and Dark Horse. Instead of doing the usual retrospective you’ll be seeing from a number of blogs and podcasts this week, I’m going to give you some commentary straight from Joe Kubert himself. In this special podcast I’ll be reading you his introductions from the following five collected editions:

Always a humble and thankful man. Joe Kubert will be sorely missed.
