Trade odds and ends 11-30-05

Wednesday, November 30, 2005

I was sorry to learn today that Grasshopper Comics would be going out of business. Though prices may often have been an issue, this site was dedicated to the "trade paperback cause," and they did post images of both the front and back covers of trade, something that's rare to see. Someone did a lot of work over at that site, and they should be commended for it.

Hovy notes over at Gotham Lounge that Barnes and Noble has listed the second Seven Soldiers of Victory trade, apparently to be released in March. If the date is right, this is awful close on the heels of the first trade ... and that's great! Unfortunately, other headlines from Barnes & Noble are few and far between, as the site is incredibly hard to navigate. For one particular headache, trying searching for keyword "Batman" and get stuck in B&N trying to sell holiday presents, instead of an actual inventory list.

One other that I did find is Showcase Presents: Superman Family, which should make some of the archivists among us happy. And as an added bonus, here's the synopsis of Geoff Johns and Paul Kupperburg's upcoming JSA novel:

FROM THE PUBLISHER
In a story that spans the generations, the Justice Society of America (JSA) and the Injustice Society battle in typical superheroic fashion, except that the catylst for the rise in criminal movement is the Spear of Destiny—the mythical weapon said to have pierced the side of Christ.

From the dark days of World War II through the modern age, the heroes of the JSA—Hawkman, Hourman, Hawkgirl, the Atom, Green Lantern, Thunderbolt, Mr. Terrific, Wildcat, Dr. Fate, and the others—have faced countless magical foes. But with the Spear in his hands, the Wizard is much more than just a costumed thug.

The fate of the world is at stake, and even the most powerful hero isn't enough to stop the destruction.
