Up Down

So the big news today is that DC is releasing a bunch of previously uncollected or unpublished material under a DC Comics Presents line and Vertigo Resurrected.

The DC stuff is interesting, including some Young Justice issues that I didn’t think would see collection much and Jack Cross 1-4, a bit of a Warren Ellis thriller.

Here’s the full list, from the DCU blog (more info there, including description of these contents and pictures):

DC COMICS PRESENTS: BRIGHTEST DAY #1
Tales from HAWKMAN #27, 34 and 36, SOLO #8, DCU HOLIDAY ‘09 and STRANGE ADVENTURES #205.

DC COMICS PRESENTS: ETHAN VAN SCIVER #1
Collecting BATMAN AND CATWOMAN: TRAIL OF THE GUN #1 and 2

DC COMICS PRESENTS: SUPERMAN #1
Collecting SUPERMAN #179-185 and SUPERMAN: MAN OF STEEL #121

DC COMICS PRESENTS: JACK CROSS #1
Features JACK CROSS #1-4

DC COMICS PRESENTS: BATMAN #1
Collecting BATMAN #582-585

DC COMICS PRESENTS: YOUNG JUSTICE #1
Collecting the JLA: WORLD WITHOUT GROWN-UPS 2-issue miniseries

DC COMICS PRESENTS: GREEN LANTERN #1
Collecting GREEN LANTERN #137-140

And from the Vertigo Blog:

So why not dig through the archives and bring some of them back? Welcome to VERTIGO RESURRECTED – a series of one-shots and specials geared to do just that–embrace history and stories that connect with the present day activities of our favorite protagonists, antagonists and creators.

“Shoot,” Warren Ellis’s much-talked about, but never published, HELLBLAZER story involving schoolyard killings leads this mega-sized VERTIGO RESURRECTION special.

Also included are rarely seen tales exploring the disturbing depths of horror, war, romance and science fiction by Brian Azzarello, Grant Morrison, Garth Ennis and artists Jim Lee, Phil Jimenez, Bernie Wrightson, and others. Cover by Tim Bradstreet.

VERTIGO RESURRECTED #1 On Sale October 20 / 96 pages / $7.99

Warren Ellis (who is represented well in both areas!) posted a little commentary over at his blog that you might be interested in.

A commenter wonders if we’ll ever get to see that Swamp Thing meets Jesus arc. I’m still crossing my fingers that we’ll get to see ANY Swamp Thing collected past where the last softcovers went.

Anyway, about these collections in specific – it’s good stuff! I think it’s a great idea to do a DC Presents line.

However, I think these are floppy collections, right? They’re not squarebound like prestige format releases? I’m honestly not sure, but I know FC means full color. I’m guessing because of the price point, the issue style numbers, and how they were solicited here.

Damn shame, because I don’t buy anything that isn’t at least a prestige – and I hope that Jack Cross being collected in that format, for example, wouldn’t keep it from being collected in a nice little squarebound format.

I might be totally wrong though. I kind of hope I am, because I’d love for there to be a little 7.99 introductory graphic novel line.

What do you guys think of this news? I’m linking this one to a forum thread. :)

    For me sweet crush saga match is also a strategy video game for the
    reason that you only have a constrained moves to crush all people jelly’s, there are candy bombs that you require to crush right before the quantity of moves runs out,
    sweets that are heading nuts with every single transfer you make and there is
    a timed recreation that you need to get to a selected
    points inside of 60-seconds to complete the amount.
    In the video game, the player will have to line up three or
    more ‘candies’ in get to execute the amounts aims.
    From right here, you can enable your melted soap items dry out in the soap holder by leaving the major open and ready for
    the drinking water to evaporate, or you can get innovative.

    In general, it will usually cost over $50000 for
    a heavy-duty, used tow truck. Though many credit counseling organizations are nonprofit, their services may not be free,
    cheap, or even legitimate, so do your research. Taking a look at the
    2013 Venza, the improved line-up of standard features should enhance the customer value
    perception of the Venza as they look at several brand choices in the
    fairly crowded mid-size crossover market.

    Interesting move. Marvel tried something similar to this out a year or two ago, but it only lasted 6 or 7 issues before it was cancelled. It reprinted somewhat recently released titles though, instead of older titles.
