SNEAK PEEK: Wolfman, Cooke, Sale and Conway lead the list…
DC’s complete solicitations are due out Monday, but we’ve got a SNEAK PEEK at some of the cool retro(ish) collections that will be included.
Among them are a fourth New Teen Titans Omnibus; a new deluxe edition of Darwyn Cooke and Tim Sale’s Superman: Kryptonite; plus some Golden Age Batman – featuring the debut of the Red Hood — and Bronze Age Justice League of America.
But perhaps the coolest item is the massive, slipcased omnibus collection of the first 26 issues of Detective Comics – before Batman debuted. (Click here for all the details.)
So, check out the official solicitation blurbs from DC, along with the not-at-all-final covers (which nevertheless give you a taste of what’s inside):
