Been caught soliciting: DC Comics, October 2011.


DC COMICS PRESENTS: THE JACK KIRBY OMNIBUS SAMPLER #1
Written by Various
Art by JACK KIRBY and others
Cover by JACK KIRBY
On sale OCTOBER 26 96 pg, FC, $7.99 US
With the JACK KIRBY OMNIBUS VOL. 1 STARRING GREEN ARROW HC on the way, DC presents this selection of Kirby mystery stories from the 1950s, pulled from the pages of HOUSE OF SECRETS #3, 8 and 12, HOUSE OF MYSTERY #76, TALES OF THE UNEXPECTED #13, 1 and 24 and MY GREATEST ADVENTURE #15, 16 17, 20 and 21, plus a Green Arrow tale from ADVENTURE COMICS #251!


Must admit, when I first saw that cover image out of the corner of my eye, I thought it said "the stone genitals of Silent Island", which would be a fantastic comic book. 



THE STEVE DITKO OMNIBUS VOL. 2 HC
Written by STEVE DITKO, LEN WEIN, PAUL LEVITZ, MARK MILLAR and others Art by STEVE DITKO and others Cover by STEVE DITKO
On sale DECEMBER 14 384 pg, FC, $59.99 US
Collecting tales by artist Steve Ditko from SHOWCASE #75, THE HAWK AND THE DOVE #1-2, MAN-BAT #1, DETECTIVE COMICS #483-485 and 487, ADVENTURE COMICS #467-468, LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES #267, 268, 274, 276 and 281, OUTSIDERS #13, LEGENDS OF THE DC UNIVERSE 80-PAGE GIANT #1 and the TALES OF THE NEW GODS TP. 


That's a lot of money for some less-than-classic comics, but still... tempted.


New SF from the 100 BULLETS team. This resides in the "must buy" files.


Tasteful Rafael Grampa cover for an interesting sounding anthology featuring some new work by The Funky Dave Gibbons.


There's also another one o'dem Vertigo Resurrected collections featuring some neglected classic Peter Milligan coming, but the work in it seems rather randomly collated.  As I keep saying on Twitter, why not collect the FACE one-shot he did with Sir Duncan Fegredo, and pack it out with the shorts they did together for various anthologies? Or include GIRL and call it a Milligan/Fegredo omnibus?
