Some old comics I got, some new ones that are interesting

Good mail day, as I finally got around to getting a copy of Tim Eldred's GREASE MONKEY book, a 300+ page book published a few years ago, collecting the first six 12-page stories Eldred published in various places back in the 1990s, and then continuing on with a few hundred more pages. Looks like some good reading ahead there.

Plus I got most of the WOLFF & BYRD / SUPERNATURAL LAW stuff I was missing, straight from Exhibit "A" Press. Still missing one issue they were sold out of, unfortunately, but looking forward to reading the stuff I did get.

Upcoming Comic of Interest
A compact collection of two of Eric Shanower's five original Oz graphic novels, originally published by First and Dark horse about 20 years ago. There's already a big collection of all five that IDW published a few years back, but if you don't have that, or the originals, this $10 book is a good cheap way to get them. This book has "The Enchanted Apple of Oz" and "The Ice King of Oz", and looks like it's shipping this week.  A second book collecting the rest should be out in the summer.

ISBN-10: 1600105890
ISBN-13: 978-1600105890

Other comics of some interest this week, I seem Boom is coming out with their $25 book collecting the first half of Don Rosa's LIFE OF SCROOGE. Seems like a pretty odd format, considering Gemstone collected the whole thing in one book for $16, but I'm curious to see how it looks.  Oh, and really good comics, so if you don't have it in another format, check it out.

And it looks like the new editions of the Kaluta/Lee STARSTRUCK series are actually coming out at a steady pace. I was a bit reluctant to pick them up since I didn't have much confidence in it not stalling early on. Is there any actually new stuff in the issues out so far, or just all reprint so far?
