Coming Attractions: DC Announces Lots of Cool Collections for the Holidays!

Coming Attractions: DC Announces Lots of Cool Collections for the Holidays!



It’s that time of year again…  DC announces their Fall trade titles!

So… there’s a lot of everything here…  Bombshells, Batman, Fight Club Suicide Squad, Supergirl and Arrow and Flash, Wonder Woman, LOTS of Neil Gaiman, Absolutes and Deluxe editions and boxed sets and omnibuses, stuff for kids, a Watchmen coloring book, and lots of “…by…” books featuring a particular creator in the actual title!

These titles will ship between August 2016 and January 2017, so I suggest you do some extra chores around the house to earn extra spending money, and to earn brownie points with Santa! (Or you could take a seasonal job in retail… but it would probably be easier and less painful to sell a kidney on the black market.)

I’ve posted a few covers to what I think are interesting titles.

What are your favorites? And what would you like to see DC reprint or collect?

Time for a new generation of criminals to rise: a band of snotty-nosed heroes driven by destiny and cheap cider, who will strike fear back into the establishment, put art back into crime and crime back into art, and pull off what will become known as the heist of the century.

But can Batman and Robin deal with the threat posed by their deadliest enemies, after years of incarceration have made them into perfect psychopaths? And more important, can anyone survive the coming fallout from an undeclared war between the superpowers—or the clash of what were once the world’s greatest heroes?

Born in 1913, John Broome started out his writing career selling science fiction stories to the pulp magazines of the 1930s. His agent for those stories was Julius Schwartz, who in 1945 would join DC Comics’ staff as an editor and, over the next forty years, be responsible for some of the most innovative comics of his time. Broome’s first comic book sale was to Fawcett Comics for the South Seas adventure strip, Lance O’Casey. More work for Fawcett followed, including on Captain Marvel, before World War II interrupted his writing career. When he was released from the service, he looked up his old friend Julius Schwartz at DC and, for more than twenty years, made his creative home there, writing countless scripts for numerous features, including the Golden Age Green Lantern, Justice Society of America, Captain Comet, the Silver Age revival of Green Lantern, the Atomic Knights, Star Hawkins, Rex the Wonder Dog, Detective Chimp, and a variety of science fiction tales. Broome retired from comic boos in the 1970s and settled in Japan where he taught English. John Broome died in Thailand in March 1999.

Considered the groundbreaking artist of the 1960s, Neal Adams was born June 6, 1941 in New York City. He attended Manhattan’s High School of Industrial Art and, while still a student, found work ghosting the Bat Masterson syndicated newspaper strip and drawing gag cartoons for Archie Comics. Neal received his own comic strip, based on the popular TV series Ben Casey, in 1962. The strip ran until 1965 at which time Neal made the move to comics for Warren Publishing and DC Comics. Neal’s realistic style on such strips as DEADMAN and GREEN LANTERN/GREEN ARROW, at odds with the more cartoony comics of the day, made him an immediate star. He became DC’s premier cover artist, contributing radical and dynamic illustrations to virtually the company’s entire line. Neal’s work has also appeared in Marvel’s X-MEN, THE AVENGERS and THOR, on paperback book covers, and on stage, as the art director for the Broadway science fiction play, Warp. In the 1970s, Neal and partner (and frequent inker) Dick Giordano started the art agency Continuity Associates out of which came, in the 1980s, Continuity Comics. Neal is the winner of several Alley, Shazam and Inkpot Awards, and was inducted into the Harvey Awards’ Jack Kirby Hall of Fame in 1999.
Summary: From legendary writer/artist Neal Adams comes a threat so epic it will take more than one Man of Steel to handle it in this new 6-issue miniseries! Superman is facing his worst enemies as terror is taking hold of Apokolips. There’s also another planet that has been deemed as the New Krypton which is facing some of this evil.

Born in 1926, Robert G. Haney grew up in Philadelphia and received an M.A. from Columbia University in New York City. He entered the comics field in 1948, writing war, crime and western stories for a wide variety of publishers, including Fawcett, Quality, Fox, Harvey, Toby, Hillman and St. John. By 1956, however, he was working almost exclusively for DC, where he would remain until the early 1980s. In the course of his long career Haney worked on a vast number of DC titles, but he is perhaps best known for his pivotal role in the creation of Metamorpho, Eclipso and the original Teen Titans, his long runs on BATMAN AND ROBIN, SUICIDE SQUAD, TOMAHAWK and MYSTERY IN SPACE, and his prodigious contributions to editor Robert Kanigher’s line of war comics. After a brief tenure in the late 1980s scripting episodes of the animated series ThunderCats and The Comic Strip for Rankin/Bass, Haney retired from professional writing and settled in the seaside town of San Felipe in Baja California. He passed away on December 5, 2004.

Born in 1911 in Brooklyn, New York, Gardner Fox was probably the single most imaginative and productive writer in the Golden Age of comics. In the 1940s, he created or co-created dozens of long-running characters for DC Comics, including The Flash, Hawkman, The Sandman and Doctor Fate, as well as penning most of the adventures of comics’ first super-team, the Justice Society of America. He was also the second person to script Batman, beginning somewhere around the Dark Knight Detective’s third story. For other companies over the years Fox also wrote Skyman, the Face, Jet Powers, Dr. Strange, Doc Savage and many others—including Crom the Barbarian, the first sword-and-sorcery series in comics. Following the revival in the late 1950s of the super-hero genre, Fox assembled Earth’s Mightiest Heroes once more and scripted an unbroken 65-issue run of JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA. Though he produced thousands of other scripts and wrote over 100 books, it is perhaps this body of work for which he is best known. Fox passed away in 1986.
Summary: Written by the legendary Gardner Fox, Adam Strange was one of the premier science fiction heroes of the 1960s. Now once again available in paperback, the Silver Age origins of one of the great DC Comics heroes of all time!

As much as any writer, Gardner Fox helped create the tone and feel of the Batman stories of the 1960s. Fox was an attorney who began his prolific and innovative second career as a writer in the late 1930s on Batman and went on to create such Golden Age classics as the original Flash, Hawkman, Starman, Doctor Fate, and the Justice Society of America. His influence extended throughout the 1950s and 1960s when, until his retirement from DC Comics in 1968, he created and/or wrote such memorable features as the Justice League of America, Adam Strange, the Atom, Hawkman, and, of course, Batman, all under the auspices of legendary comics editor Julius Schwartz. Until his death in 1986, Gardner Fox continued writing comics and novels. He published over 100 books in numerous genres, some under the pseudonyms of Jefferson Cooper and Bart Sommers, as well as many fantasy novels under his own name.

In the years since his entry into the indie film community, Kevin Smith has seen it all—from the surprise critical and commercial success he received for his debut film Clerks to the disappointing critical and commercial drubbing he took on his second outing, Mallrats. He caught a break on his third film, the critically hailed Chasing Amy, and managed not to get killed by the religious zealots over his fourth film, the comedic meditation Dogma. Thus not deterred, Smith advanced and has written and directed Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back and Zach and Miri Make A Porno.
He’s written comic books featuring not only his own characters (Clerks and Jay and Silent Bob), but other characters as well—the award-winning Daredevil at Marvel Comics, and the award-winning Green Arrow and Batman at DC Comics.
Summary: The original Green Arrow, Oliver Queen, reemerges after years of being assumed dead. But many people, including Black Canary, his ex-lover, Arsenal, his ex-partner, Connor Hawke, his son and temporary successor and Batman, the Dark Knight Detective, want to know how Green Arrow survived the airplane explosion and where he has been. Using strong characterization and engaging dialogue, comics and screenplay writer and movie director Kevin Smith (Clerks, Dogma, Batman: Cacophony) successfully resurrects one of the world’s classic heroes.
This graphic novel collects Smith’s now-classic run on the title Green Arrow #1-15.

Alan Moore is perhaps the most acclaimed writer in the graphic story medium, having garnered countless awards for works such as WATCHMEN, V FOR VENDETTA, SWAMP THING and MIRACLEMAN. He is also the mastermind behind the America’s Best Comics line, through which he has created (along with many talented illustrators) THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN, PROMETHEA, TOM STRONG, TOMORROW STORIES and TOP TEN.
Summary: Now presented in stark black and white, highlighting Dave Gibbons dark, moody pencils, read the greatest graphic novel of all time in a whole new way!
In an alternate world where the mere presence of American superheroes changed history, the US won the Vietnam War, Nixon is still president, and the Cold War is in full effect. WATCHMEN begins as a murder-mystery, but soon unfolds into a planet-altering conspiracy. As the resolution comes to a head, the unlikely group of reunited heroes—Rorschach, Nite Owl, Silk Spectre, Dr. Manhattan and Ozymandias—have to test the limits of their convictions and ask themselves where the true line is between good and evil.
In the mid-eighties, Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons created WATCHMEN, changing the course of comics’ history and essentially remaking how popular culture perceived the genre. Popularly cited as the point where comics came of age, WATCHMEN’s sophisticated take on superheroes has been universally acclaimed for its psychological depth and realism.

Born in 1914 in Cleveland, OH, Jerome Siegel was, as a teenager, a fan of the emerging literary genre that came to be known as science fiction. Together with schoolmate Joe Shuster, Siegel published several science fiction fan magazines, and in 1933 they came up with their own science fiction hero—Superman. Siegel scripted and Shuster drew several weeks’ worth of newspaper strips featuring their new creation, but garnered no interest from publishers or newspaper syndicates. It wasn’t until the two established themselves as reliable adventure-strip creators at DC Comics that the editors at DC offered to take a chance on the Superman material—provided it was re-pasted into comic book format for DC’s new magazine, ACTION COMICS. Siegel wrote the adventures of Superman (as well as other DC heroes, most notably the Spectre, his co-creation with Bernard Baily) through 1948 and then again from 1959-1966, in the interim scripting several newspaper strips including Funnyman and Ken Winston. Jerry Siegel died in January 1996.
Joseph Shuster was born in 1914 in Toronto, Canada. When he was nine, his family moved to Cleveland, Ohio, where Shuster met Jerry Siegel. The two became fast friends and collaborators; together, they published the earliest science fiction fan magazines, where Shuster honed his fledgling art skills. In 1936, he and Siegel began providing DC Comics with such new features as Dr. Occult, Slam Bradley and Radio Squad before selling Superman to DC in 1938. Joe Shuster drew Superman through 1947, after which he left comic books to create the comic strip Funnyman, again with Siegel. Failing eyesight cut short his career, but not before his place in the history of American culture was assured. Shuster died of heart failure on July 30, 1992.
Summary: When the last son of Krypton was sent to Earth, one of the greatest legends of all time was born. This edition collects some of the earliest tales of Superman as they were first published. Written and drawn by his creators, Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, these tales find Superman helping everyday people against crooked politicians, taking on mad scientists, and running afoul of influential socialites.

Dennis O’Neil began his career as a comic book writer in 1965 at Charlton, where then-editor Dick Giordano assigned him to several features. When Giordano moved to DC, O’Neil soon followed. At DC, O’Neil scripted several series for Giordano and Julius Schwartz, quickly becoming one of the most respected writers in comics. O’Neil earned a reputation for being able to “revamp” such characters as Superman, Green Lantern, Captain Marvel—and Batman, whom O’Neil (with the help of Neal Adams and Giordano) brought back to his roots as a dark, mysterious, gothic avenger. Besides being the most important Batman writer of the 1970s, O’Neil served as an editor at both Marvel and DC. After a long tenure as Group Editor of the Batman line of titles, he retired to write full-time.
Summary: BATMAN: THE SWORD OF AZRAEL depicts the origin of Jean Paul Valley, the man who one day replaces Bruce Wayne as Batman.

After working alongside the Dark Knight to defeat the deadly demon that threatens the ancient cult, Azrael turns his back on the Order and leaves to train under the tutelage of Batman. However, after losing the mantle of the Bat, will Jean Paul turn back to his life of brutality?

Summary: When an enormous scandal reveals that Tom might really be a boy-wizard made flesh, Tom comes into contact with a very mysterious, very deadly group that has secretly kept tabs on him all his life. To protect his own life and discover the truth behind his origins, Tom traverses a series of locations that have been featured on a very special map. This document charts places throughout world history where fictions—ranging from literary works to folktales to pop culture—have impacted and tangibly shaped reality. In the process, Tom uncovers a huge conspiracy that spans the entirety of the history of fiction.

Like a sleeping giant, Middle America rises up and violently pushes its way to the shining seas, coming to a standstill at the line in the sand: Manhattan or, as the world now knows it, the DMZ.
In this volume, a new leader rises in the DMZ—but what will that mean for Matty Roth, a journalist who calls the zone home? After a near-tragic misadventure in Staten Island, Matty returns to find Parco Delgado in office as provisional governor of New York. Matty’s first task under the Delgado regime? Tracking down the source of one of the DMZ’s greatest urban legends.

Matt Wagner has enjoyed a career in comics for over twenty years. Born and educated in Pennsylvania, his first published work was a short story that would introduce one of comicdom’s most respected creator-owned characters—the mastermind assassin, Grendel. Best known for this epic creation and his other, more personal, allegory, Mage, Matt has also worked on a variety of established characters. These include his groundbreaking work on the character of Batman villain Two-Face in the graphic novel FACES, as well as a five-year stint both developing and generating the stories for the fan-favorite Vertigo title, SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE. He also wrote the DR. MID-NITE miniseries for DC Comics and served as the regular cover artist on the Kevin Smith-penned relaunch of GREEN ARROW.
In the second volume, Wesley Dodds, a.k.a. the Sandman, and his soon-to-be paramour (and narrator) Dian Belmont become entangled in mystery from two different directions. With each crime more grisly than the last, will this pulp hero be able to solve the cases before more victims are claimed?
These critically lauded, award-winning tales are finally available again in SANDMAN MYSTERY THEATRE BOOK 1. Collects issues #13-24 and SANDMAN MYSTER THEATRE ANNUAL #1.

    I’d love to see the 1970s revival of Teen Titans collected, the one by Bob Rozakis.

    More Legion between the last archive and the Great Darkness Saga edition.

    The original Secret Six from the late 60s, to include the strip that ran in Action Comics Weekly.

    Hourman.

    Complete Freedom Fighters from the 70s.

    Thriller.

    Green Lantern series from the revival up to whenever the earliest 80s collection starts. This would be the O’Neil/Grell series.

    Complete Mike Grell Warlord. In color.

    Richard Dragon, Kung Fu Fighter.

    Arion Lord of Atlantis

    Arak

    Inferior Five

    Just more Bronze Age DC (pre-COIE) and I”d be happy.

    First thing that I would highly suggest (besides the following) is A Deluxe version of J.M. Straczynski & Jesus Saiz’s underpraised & short lived modern “Brave & the Bold” Run!
    Which NEEDS A somewhat over-sized treatment,,,,,,,,, of some kind,, anyways.

    – Newsboy Legion,,,,,,, quoi?
    No Real LoSH. – Legion … C’mon DC, JC !!

    Once again they forget to address (Levitz/ Lightle etc.) Baxter-series .
    & Yes, almost A decade back following the EXCEPTIONAL “Lightning Saga”
    ((( JLoA/ JSA x-over thru “FC.Lo3W” thru “Last Stand of Krypton conclusion ))) DC started to reprint said Baxter-series in tpb. format as A courtesy; and for some still unknown reason- was halted after only the first 2 initial volumes (#1-13 / 1984-85) right before the cult fav. “Who is Sensor Girl saga” was due to begin. An here we are 8yrs later with No Explanation, and STILL NO CONTINUATION.

    But Instead— Here’s ‘Newsboy Legion’ slap-in-the-face blah, BS!

    – On the other hand I like this “Elseworlds” idea, although I don’t agree with the formatting or comprisment of collections.

    – Also, I ABSOLOUTLEY Hate “Batman Year One” as an Absolute/ in the Absolute format.
    It’s barely 100pgs and the $125 price tag is Ridiculous! Its also insulting, even if it does come with The DvD/Blu-ray (which I don’t believe it does). I feel extremely Bad for the Kid/Person who wants to try comics or gets prized with only this said collection, because they’re going to be like “WtF is this, DC comics are dry, slow & boring”.. Besides the fact its redundant as of now with All the ubiquitous overload of “Batman Zero”./ “Batman Begans” material.
    _________________________________________
    BOTTOM LINE: when it comes to the over-sized “ABSOLOUTE” format— WHEN ARE WE GOING TO GET A PROPER Batman “RIP.” COLLECTION ?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?? For crying out loud!
    You DC fools are putting out yet ANOTHER Grant Morrison “B&R” GN. and you still have yet to produce A proper “RIP.” collection (The powerful B&R precursor)- One that collects ALL 10 Comics!
    Like the LoSH. Baxter series- “Batman RIP.” is yet Another simple collection DC has failed too properly collect in any format,, period..
