Heads up, Re-Readers,

I just decided a little while ago that if I could review and discuss one Levitz/Giffen/Mahlstedt issue in a civil fashion, then I can review and discuss them all. And, in addition, I'll be extending my stay past my beloved Universo Project, into the awfulness of Death of Superboy, and then all the way to the bitter end of Magic Wars.

Which is a fancy way of saying you're stuck with me for the next two years or so. tongue lol wink grin

Hey, Re-Readers,

I know I've fallen behind in my participation, but it wasn't just the hurricane. Without saying too much so I don't jinx myself, I've been busy creating loads of stuff to contribute to the Bits forum. And hopefully by the second half of the week I'll be ready to return to the Re-Reads...just in time for the big finish to GDS.

What fun.

Question that I'm sure almost everyone in this thread knows...

Okay, so per the REAL archives that physically exist:

Can anyone explain to me why volumes 12 and 13 are so ridiculously expensive and rare on Amazon, eBay, etc?

Is it a simple matter of a small print run? Even with that, it Seems weird that BY FAR the newest ones are hardest to get.

I wouldn't mind so much, except archive 13 apparently ends on the Infinite Man (SLSH#233), one of (IMHO) the best LSH stories ever. Given that the hardcover released this summer starts with SLSH#234, it would seem we are SOL for an archive of #233 without paying out the nose.

given I only plan to buy these for 'convenience' reading (I bought my first contiguous issue from our local variety store comic rack way back at SLSH#219 and kept going from there, but they're in boxes in a closet), it's hard to justify. And Comixology just isn't satisfying..

It's a scarcity thing. 12, 13, 5 & 8 are the four hardest to find. I was fortunate to get 3 of the 4 through special circumstances, but paid through the nose for #12. Keep your eye on ebay, and every now and then one comes by, but it's certainly an exercise in patience.

Thanks, that's what I was afraid of... and my god, you're right I hadn't noticed #8, it seems perhaps even worse.

I wonder if it is partly a popularity thing? Oh well, it's an excuse to hit some used book shops and hope to get lucky...
I wonder if the new omnibus will catch up? first one apparently covers archives 1-3, so 4 of them would cover through 12... might still leave 13 out, though. frown

We're approaching the end of Archive 18 and I was wondering what we should do with Brave & Bold #198. It has a publication date of May 1983, the same as issue #299.

Skip Brave & Bold, review it before #299, after or after #300? I believe the consensus was to end this Archive with #300, then Archive 19 would comprise #301-313.

Opinions? Preferences? Some apple crumble?

#299 is the second part of a story, so I'd prefer to have it after that. But before #300?

Make it the first issue of the next Archives, that way we can put Batman on the cover and boost sales!

^He's thinking like a DC exec!

After skimming through the next few issues, I think the Brave & Bold issue would be better after #300, in terms of story. Therefore I suggest that we end this current archive with #300 then start Archive 19 with the Brave & Bold #198.

Archive 19 would comprise:

Brave & Bold #198
LSH #301
DCCP #59
LSH #302-303
Annual #2
LSH #304-313


If Future does another set of his wonderful covers, it will be his decision whether or not to put Bats on the cover. wink
