PLUS: 13 AMAZING WORLD COVERS to make you feel good…

A couple weeks ago, I opined (a silly word, actually) that the time is right for a FOOM omnibus from Marvel. I mean, just this week, we’re getting the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe: Deluxe Edition Omnibus and this summer a bunch of the company’s 1970s black-light posters are being re-released. Those are just two examples of some groovy things Marvel’s had going on of late (with more to come) so a hardbound edition collecting the official fanzine’s 22 issues would be really far out.

Same for DC and Amazing World of DC Comics, which ran 17 issues plus a couple of specials, including the mag’s one-shot predecessor, Amazing World of Superman — a hardcover facsimile of which is due April 13, along with the Who’s Who Omnibus Vol. 1.

Anyway, these mags ain’t cheap and to put together a complete run of either will set you back some coin.

So, as promised, I reiterate the call for FOOM and Amazing World of DC Comics omnibi — and to entertain you in the meantime, here are 13 COVERS from DC’s Bronze Age in-house mag. (Click here for 13 FOOM COVERS.)

Right on.

  4. I’d totally be down for an “Amazing World of DC” omnibus from DC themselves.

  5. Yes, please!!! I’m surprised TwoMorrows Publishing hasn’t done this yet!

  6. Yeah, you would think if DC wasn’t interested in doing it, it’s a no-brainer for TwoMorrows. That’s a chunk of Bronze Age history there.
