Op-Ed

The best news I've heard from this year's SDCC blah-fest is that Fantagraphics have obtained the EC Comics license, and will be using it to repackage the classic marque's back catalogue into collections based around individual creators, rather than around the various anthologies that originally housed the material, "to better underline [the] specific artistic achievements of [the] creators".  Here's hoping this helps sustain a momentum that prompts all publishers to treat their own anthologies in such a way, so that DC could publish a Showcase entirely dedicated to Wally Wood, Alex Toth or Frank Robbins, for instance.
