Upcoming Stuff of Interest - Plastic Man Archives v8

PLASTIC MAN ARCHIVES VOL. 8 HC
by Jack Cole

The Pliable Paladin returns for another round of body-bending action in THE PLASTIC MAN ARCHIVES VOL. 8! Reprinting the Plastic Man stories from POLICE COMICS #72-77 and PLASTIC MAN #9-10 (1947-1948), this 204-page volume also includes an introduction by acclaimed writer and longtime Plastic Man fan Harvey Pekar.
on sale August 16 - 204 pg, Full Colour, $49.99 US

Whoever picks the cover images for the PLASTIC MAN ARCHIVES is doing a great job. Not only is the art great (as you'd expect from Jack Cole) but the choice and layout of images works better with the generic Archives cover format than any of the other series. And of course good to see this getting as far as eight volumes. Does anyone know how many more Cole's work would fill? 1948 is getting close to the end of his run, isn't it? It'll be interesting to read Pekar's introduction, too.
