    Showcase Presents...

    Anyone else a fan of these? Some good ones coming up....

    ADAM STRANGE VOL. 1 (August 2007)
    BATGIRL VOL. 1 (July 2007)
    BATMAN AND THE OUTSIDERS VOL. 1 (Sept 2007)
    CAPTAIN CARROT VOL. 1 (Sept 2007)
    THE GREAT DISASTER FEATURING THE ATOMIC KNIGHTS (Oct 2007)
    MARTIAN MANHUNTER VOL. 1 (July 2007)
    METAL MEN VOL. 1(Oct 2007)
    SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS VOL. 1(Nov 2007)
    SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 1 (Nov 2007)
    TEEN TITANS VOL. 2 (Sept 2007)
    WHO'S WHO VOL. 1-2 (2007)
    WONDER WOMAN VOL. 1 (August 2007)

    I'm surprised to see "newer" stuff like BATO, Suicide Squad and Captain Carrot up there, since most of the Showcase series has been Silver Age with some Bronze Age.

    I'm looking forward to the Secret Society of Super Villians.

    Stuff that I would love to see get the Showcase treatment...

    Ambush Bug (both minis and specials, and including his DC Comics Presents, Action Comics and Supergirl appearances).

    Harvey Kurtzman's Mad.

    Unknown Soldier.

    Enemy Ace.

    Elliot S! Maggin and Curt Swan's seventies Superman.

    Giffen's Justice League titles.

    Mike Baron and William Messner Loeb's run on Flash post-Crisis featuring Wally West.

    Mike Grell's Green Arrow.

    I'd be all over these if they were newsprint color TPB's, the B&W kills it for me.

    The black and white's not so bad actually...

    I'd like to see:

    Eclipso (from "House of Secrets")
    Dial "H" for Hero (from "House of Mystery")
    Beware...The Creeper
    Doom Patrol
    The Demon (original Kirby series)
    Deadman (from "Strange Adventures" through "Adventure Comics")

    I've only gotten two so far Superman vol.1 and Teen Titans vol.1, but I really dig them. It took me a while to get past the black and white, but once you start reading them, you don't really care. Cool to see great artwork by Swan and Cardy in black and white as they created it.

    A buddy of mine told me the Batgirl Showcase is out. I have to get that one!

    I've been after cheap Kurtzman mad for a decade.

    As for Captain Carrot, wow I used to never miss an issue.

    Bat

    What surprised me is that they came out with one for Aquaman. I may want to get that one. So far, the only ones I have are Batman and Justice League of America. I want to get the Teen Titans, Aquaman and any future volumes of Batman and Justice League. It would be neat if they did a World's Finest.
    Cheers.
