...and good comics are in the stores.
I was expecting the first book, and it's even better than expected (it is indeed the 7x10 full size format, not the 5x7 digest format that the original solicitation had). Six Barks classics for $11? This truly is a golden age. Can't wait for the second one.
The second one, though, floored me. A high quality hardcover collection of all three of the SUPERMAN: THE DAILIES books by Siegel and Shuster and various others, originally co-published by DC and Kitchen Sink? 966 large strips, plus copius supplementary material? 560 pages in all? And with a cover price of just US$20 (and discounted down to $13 on place like Amazon)? All available evidence is that this book should not be able to exist in this form on this planet, and yet it does. I have no idea how I was unaware of this fact until yesterday, but there you go.
Seriously, if you're not interested in getting both these books at these prices, I'm not sure why you'd be reading this weblog.
