SECRET SOCIETY OF SUPER-VILLAINS tpb vol.1
While it may have some echoes with current New 52 books, these stories, now in softcover, are a great companion to the DC era from Identity Crisis up to Infinite Crisis. It also features one of my fave sci-fi characters, Captain Comet.

  1. Pompeii! Most anticipated book of the year, for me. Glad to see it prominently displayed here, Pete. Since I was introduced to Frank Santoro’s work at MoCCA in 2007, I’ve been a devout fan of his work and have loved everything by Santoro. He’s definitely an “acquired taste,” and I don’t know that I can fully articulate what it is about his work that affects me, but it’s a very powerful connection I feel to his work. The following piece at the Comics Journal offered some interesting insights into the first chapter Santoro had at SPX last year:
