Stuff of Interest - July 2006 - Metal Men Archives v1

METAL MEN ARCHIVES VOL. 1
Written by Robert Kanigher
Art by Ross Andru and Mike Esposito
One of the most beloved (and unusual) band of heroes from DC's Silver Age makes its triumphant return in this archive, collecting SHOWCASE #37-40 and METAL MEN #1-5 (1962-1964)! This volume includes the origin of the Metal Men in the lab of Dr. Will Magnus and more!
On sale July 19 - 246 pg, full colour, $49.99 US


I kind of thought this one would be a natural for the b&w SHOWCASE line, but it's nice to see in this format. I might consider picking it up if a cheaper SHOWCASE version doesn't show up in the next year or two. I've read the original try-out run from a pervious reprint, and it's pretty frantic and crazy stuff from Kanigher, and the Andru/Esposito art is a treat.
