Two new Collected Editions ebooks

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

Today Collected Editions announces the release of two new ebooks!

In 2011, DC Comics relaunched their entire line of titles, replacing over twenty-years of post-Crisis on Infinite Earths continuity (and some pre-Crisis continuity!) with the New 52. The Collected Editions website chronicled the newly unfolding DC Universe with reviews of each of the inaugural New 52 collections, and now those reviews are collected in a new ebook as an in-depth study of the New 52. The book includes two new, never-before-published Collected Editions reviews, as well as a new introduction by the author.

The second volume in the Unofficial DC Comics Trade Paperback Timeline series is updated and expanded to include over 900 titles, including all the New 52 Volume 1 titles, making this the perfect guide for both new and established readers. The Timeline shows how to read DC's library of collected editions in order, offering a quick glance at the most significant DC events as well as collections that readers might have missed. Copious notes help explain how the collections fit together. Whether a fan of DC's old continuity or new, the Trade Paperback Timeline is your map to navigating the DC universe. This volume also contains a new introduction by the author.

How to order

The ebooks are just $0.99 each, available direct from Smashwords and compatible with all ebook apps and devices (Kindle see below). You can also order the books from Barnes and Noble for the Nook, the Apple iBookstore, Kobo, and the Sony ReaderStore (link to come).

  1. And here I was, wondering if there ever would be an updated version of the ebook :D

    Is this an updated version of the old ebook, or a companion?

    1. The Collected Editions Guide to the DC Comics New 52 Vol. 1 is all "new," in the sense that it's slightly edited versions of posts found originally at this site, plus two brand new reviews and a new introduction.

      The Unofficial DC Comics Trade Paperback Timeline Vol. 2 is an updated version of Volume 1 -- new books in many sections, a whole new New 52 section, a brand new introduction, and (I think) a better-functioning ebook. So I guess that's an update, though the two volumes have different introductions, so they're kind of companions. Thanks!

    2. Great, I just bought them on smashwords and I'll put them on my iPad tonight. My DC trades need some reordering ;)

      BTW, you should put flattr or a paypal donation button on your homepage. You're such a big help for me to grow my DC collection, I'd subscribe a flattr subscription for you.

  2. Ahhh, the mystery is solved, looking forward to curling up with these. Thanks for all your hard work CE

    1. Hey, you're welcome! Let me know how you like them.
