Quick note on DC's solicitations for September: I thought it was interesting that on the Mystery in Space Vol. 1 trade paperback solicitation, DC was sure to mention that "This volume collects MYSTERY IN SPACE #1-5. Volume 2, due in 2008, will collect issues #6-8 plus the original THE WEIRD miniseries." Unless I'm forgetting, I don't recall a trade solicited of the Weird back-up feature for Mystery in Space, so the inclusion of the original Weird mini-series by Starlin seems wei--odd. It's not real clear here, but perhaps the back-up feature is included in this trade.
But I do tend to wonder if DC's trying to offset some of the volume 1/volume 2 frustration (a la Justice League Elite)by mentioning Mystery in Space Volume 2 now.
