THE SPECTRE’s Silver and Bronze Age Classics to Get Omnibus Release

Almost 800 pages of the Spirit of Vengeance — featuring Aparo, Anderson, Wrightson and MORE…

Such timing.

Thursday was the 105th anniversary of Spectre creator Jerry Siegel’s birth. (Click here for our 13 COVERS salute.)

Now, a day later, DC is announcing an omnibus edition collecting the Spirit of Vengeance’s classic tales from the Silver and Bronze Ages.

Dig the newly released official solicitation blurb, with placeholder art:

THE SPECTRE: THE WRATH OF THE SPECTRE OMNIBUS HC

Written by GARDNER FOX, BOB HANEY, MICHAEL FLEISCHER, and others

Art by MURPHY ANDERSON, JIM APARO, CARMINE INFANTINO, ROSS ANDRU, BERNIE WRIGHTSON, and others

Cover by JIM APARO

DC’s grim arbiter of justice, the Spectre, resurfaced in the 1960s for all-new—and sometimes controversial—stories demonstrating the true power of his vengeance. In this omnibus collecting Showcase #60-61 and #64, The Brave and the Bold #72, #75, #116, #180, and #199, The Spectre #1-10, Adventure Comics #431-440, DC Comics Presents #29, and Ghosts #97-99, witness former cop Jim Corrigan dish out ghoulish punishments across the DC Universe!

Given the Spectre’s cult-fave status – and the interest in these stories in particular – I imagine a lot of fans will be lining up for this doorstopper next July.
