Looks like I have another set of Archives to add to the DC Universe Reading Order.

And another set that I’ve got to buy! And here I was just getting over the fact that I’m looking at purchasing 26 Spirit Archives!

DC has announced that the T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents will be officially joining the DC Universe in a series created by Nick Spencer and CAFU. More details are at The Source, DC’s Official Blog. Looks like covers by Frank Quitely and Darwyn Cooke are in the works.

Expect the first floppy issue to hit the shelves in November. I’m sure we’ll see a collected edition at some point, if it sells well.

In the meantime, you might want to check out the classic T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Archives.

These are the existing books I’ll soon be adding to the database:

T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Archives, Volume 1 – T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #1-4
T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Archives, Volume 2 – T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #5-7 and Dynamo #1
T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Archives, Volume 3 – T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #8-10 and Dynamo #2
T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Archives, Volume 4 – T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #11, NoMan #1-2 and Dynamo #3
T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Archives, Volume 5 – T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #12-14 and Dynamo #4
T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Archives, Volume 6 – T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents #15-20 plus covers of four UNDERSEA Agent books
The T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Companion

As a related side note, I’ve tagged the Spirit Archives with the DC Archives label.

Sure, the reprint volumes collect materials from different publishers, but they’re put out by DC and DC just had a mini in 2008 that’s in a nice little collection.

So we’re putting this one right at the start of the DCU reading order.

These are the books that were placed:

Tor Vol. 1

Tor Vol. 2

Tor Vol. 3

Tor: A Prehistoric Odyssey

They don’t have the rest of the info on them yet (issues, dates, etc) but they’re at the top of the list, so as I go down and add info and covers, they’ll be the first to get updated.

As of this update, the following books have been placed on the RRO:

Lucifer: The Devil In The Gateway

Lucifer: Children and Monsters

Lucifer: A Dalliance With The Damned

Lucifer: Nirvana

Lucifer: The Divine Comedy

Lucifer: Inferno

Lucifer: Mansions of the Silence

Lucifer: Exodus

Lucifer: The Wolf Beneath the Tree

Lucifer: Crux

Lucifer: Morningstar

Lucifer: Evensong

Lucifer is one of my absolute favorite comics. It’s basically a sequel to Sandman, both with some reoccurring characters and in general theme and feel. I’m sure a lot of people would say it’s not quite as good, but honestly I’ve read and reread Lucifer many more times than Sandman.

Really fun book. If you haven’t read it yet, I highly recommend picking it up. You can often find a complete set of the trades on ebay for very reasonable amounts.

Here’s an update with a much requested feature! Well, actually it’s an update made up of a bunch of smaller features and changes, all combined to make one captain planet of an update.

This update allows you to share your collection with other site users! Remember, all you have to do is log in and click on the + buttons next to each book to add books to your collection. I’m trying to make it as quick and easy as possible. If you don’t like waiting for the page to reload, you can even hit the plus button to open in a new tab!

I’m working on getting it to function using AJAX so it doesn’t have to reload the whole page before saving your book addition.

Lets go down the list of features added in this new update.

1. Each user now has a profile page!

The direct url for this page is http://www.tradereadingorder.com/profile/username/ – your username is whatever you use to log in with!

2. The profile page displays:

Your Avatar, your full name (whatever you choose to put here, I don’t require this to be a real name), your display name in parentheses, your website link and your email link.

Your Bio – this is whatever you put in on your profile page.

Your Recent Blog Posts and Reviews (if you’ve submitted any through the backend or are a regular author here.)

Your Recent Comments (on any blog posts)

and finally, YOUR COLLECTION.

3. Forum Profile Links, Comment Links, and Author Names now link to profile page

All the user links on the page should now link to this profile page, instead of seperate forum profiles and site profiles. This means that you also just edit your profile through the wordpress backend instead of the separate forum form. You can now upload an avatar directly on this page! I apologize if you previously uploaded an avatar, you’ll have to do it again or use your Gravatar.

On the upside of losing the old ones, you can now upload a bigger avatar.

4. Avatars Now Display In Comments and on Sidebar!

Avatars now display in the comments and on the sidebar after you’ve logged in. I’ll be tweaking the layout of this stuff more soon, as it’s kind of awkward right now, but there they are! Again, you can upload an avatar directly on your profile page. Play around with it and let me know if something seems broken!

That’s it for now! Once I figure out how, I’ll be adding Recent Forum Posts to profile pages. And of course the wishlist, if we ever get that working.

Let’s share our collections guys! Here are some examples to start you out:

You can see my profile and collection here and you can check out Beth’s little profile where she’s listing the books she’s read so far.
