  1. Well, now that we know the February & March trade lists - what are your thoughts for April 2006?

  2. Mmm. Maybe Green Lantern, or Supergirl. Hawkman, if they're going to collect the Gray and Palmiotti run. Another Gotham Central's gonna come around one of these days. I'm not sure ... let me think on this a bit.

  3. So what happened to Superman: Sacrifice? Wasn't that supposed to be released in February?

  4. Sorry, I meant "Superman: Strange Attractors". "Sacrifice" is out in January. But "Strange Attractors" - that was supposed to be February, wasn't it? Has it been pushed back? Or is "The Journey" just the same thing under a different title and I'm just too dense to realise?

  5. Yeah, Superman: Strange Attractors did disappear, but I'm still thinking we'll see it in March when the full March solicitations are announced. It actually works better this way, I think; Superman: The Journey likely comes chronologically before Superman: Strange Attractors.

  6. And Amazon.ca now lists Superman: Strange Attractors, too, so I believe it's still on the menu.
