And Captain Marvel and the Monster Society of Evil was collected and
reprinted; I just bought the oversized softback reprint by Classic Comics
Library. I got it on Amazon.

ó

Eric, how would you describe the quality of the scans? I read a review saying
that they were poor and that a couple of chapters were missing. Is this true?

TONS of DC stuff from before the first COIE.

They are admittedly getting better at it, but for a very long time it seemed like they didn't want to reprint any of their older stuff besides the really old Golden age stuff.

Wallace, the scans are fair to good. They're fairly consistent, and you would never confuse these with having the originals in hand.

On the other hand, I can't really compare because I don't HAVE any of the originals to compare to; they might be perfect copies of Captain Marvel Adventures which were only good quality to begin with.

But there is no question I feel that I got my money's worth. There are something like twenty-odd stories, and getting the originals would involve thousands of dollars. I was more concerned with having the story and art than actually owning the books - and I'm perfectly satisfied for thirty bucks.

I'd love to see the rest of JB's Namor run collected.

I'd love a collection of those fun, weird Johnny Thunder stories from Flash Comics.

I just can't imagine there's a market for a book like that.

I bought a bunch of (coverless) Flash Comics over the years -- so I've read some of those stories. I think that's about as close as I'll get to a collection.

Nathan, if you want it... there's a market for it. 'Sides, this is for fun, y'know.

Shucks, I'd love to have a collection of Captain Marvel Jr. stories by Mac Raboy... so wish for the stars, pal!

Now that Nathan (sort of) mentions it, I really wish we could've gotten more of the "JSA All-Stars Archives", featuring Johnny Thunder, Hourman, Wildcat, Mr. Terrific, the Red Tomato, er, Tornado, Dr. Mid-Nite and the Atom. (The first (only) volume had the first five stories of each character.)

Really, any additional Golden Age reprints from Marvel and DC would be welcome plus reprints of Sugar and Spike, the original Marvel Tales and the remaining Journey into Mystery and Strange Tales Masterworks.

I'd love to have all of Howard Mackie's Ghost Rider and
Spirits of Vengence issues collected. That era where we
had The Danny Ketch Ghost Rider AND the Johny Blaze one,
was just magic!

Eric - it appears the "more" that was in my head when typing that post didn't make it in... I have volume 1, but sadly volumes 2+ persistently remain non-existent. :-(

See, Dave, I think you hit on something. There are a lot of books I want collected... and as well as that, there are a lot of series that only had one or two books that I would REALLY like more of! (e.g., Sugar and Spike, Marvel Family, Mr. Byrne's Namor, etc.)

I wish they would finish re-printing Dreadstar by Starlin.

*****

Seems like they've started collecting and reprinting this several times but never get very far into the series. Really the only issues worth collecting are the Epic run and the First issues until Starlin quits writing and drawing it. After Starlin left it was never really the same.
