This week is a good week for trade paperback
collections. I’ll be picking up the cheap reprint of
Batman: The Dark Knight Archives Vol. 1 from
DC. DC is also releasing the third printing of
Green Lantern: Rebirth #1 and the second
printing of Green Lantern: Rebirth #2, both
of which I highly recommend. (I’ll review all six
issues when they’re out.) A reprint of Identity
Crisis #2
is also out there, as well as the
trade paperback of JLA: Another Nail. The
Marvel comics materials I’m picking up include
Essential Iron Man Vol. 2 (to be reviewed by
theangrymob at some point), Exiles #55 (part
one of a three part arc that runs through December,
and finishes the content of the next TPB, so I may
switch back to trades after this story), Marvel
Age Spider-Girl Vol. 2
, New Avengers
, and Ultimates 2 #1. I’ll be
passing on the Avengers Disassembled tie-ins to
Thor (which will be the last collection of
that title for some time) and Spectacular
(which includes the introduction of
organic web shooters and a super spider sense that
will be around for some time).
