Upcoming DC Trades 

Newsarama has a large list

BATGIRL: DESTRUCTION'S DAUGHTER TP
Writer: Anderson Gabrych
Artists: Pop Mhan, Alé Garza, Andy Kuhn, Jesse Delperdang, Cam Smith; original cover artists: Tim Sale and Amanda Conner
Collects BATGIRL #65-73
$14.99, 224 pages


I enjoyed Gabrych's run as writer, and it's nice to see DC finish up the run after the book's cancellation.

SHAZAM FAMILY ARCHIVES VOL. 1 HC
Writer: Unknown
Artists: Mac Raboy, Al Carreno, Marc Swayze; original cover artists: Mac Raboy and C.C. Beck
Collects stories from MASTER COMICS #23-32, CAPTAIN MARVEL JR. #1 and CAPTAIN MARVEL ADVENTURES #18
$49.99, 228 pages


If Archive editions were more in my budget I'd give serious thought to picking this up.

SHOWCASE PRESENTS: BATMAN VOL. 1 TP
Writers: John Broome, Ed "France" Herron and Bill Finger
Artists: Carmine Infantino, Joe Giella, Bob Kane, Sheldon Moldoff, Murphy Anderson and Sid Greene
Collects stories from DETECTIVE COMICS #327-342 and BATMAN #164-174
$16.99, 552 pages


The Silver Age Batman stories that some people seem to think should be the only way the character should be portrayed. Sadly, I don't think this book covers the "Batman's Time Travel Crimes on Venus" era of stories.

ALL STAR SUPERMAN VOL. 1 HC
Writer: Grant Morrison
Artist: Frank Quitely; original cover artists: Frank Quitely and Neal Adams
Collects ALL STAR SUPERMAN #1-6
$19.99, 160 pages


That's a very nice price for six issues in hard-cover, and of good material too.
I note that there's no solicitation in sight for All Star Batman's first collection.

SHOWCASE PRESENTS: THE PHANTOM STRANGER VOL. 1 TP
Writers: Mike Friedrich, John Broome, Ed "France" Herron, Robert Kanigher, Jack Oleck, Len Wein and Gerry Conway
Artists: Neal Adams, Jerry Grandenetti, Leonard Starr, Bill Draut, Carmine Infantino, Frank Giacoia, Murphy Anderson, Wayne, Howard, Vince Colletta, Jim Aparo, Tony DeZuñiga and Jack Sparling
Collects SHOWCASE #80 and THE PHANTOM STRANGER #1-21
$16.99, 544 pages


I loves me some Phantom Stranger weirdness. This includes the early stories where Doctor Thirteen is trying to prove that the Phantom Stranger is just a con-man, and nothing truly supernatural is going on in the mysteries, just crooks in monster suits trying to scare people.

SHOWCASE PRESENTS: SHAZAM VOL. 1 TP
Writers: Dennis O'Neil, E. Nelson Bridwell and Elliot S. Maggin
Artists: C.C. Beck, Kurt Schaffenberger, Bob Oksner, Dave Cockrum, Alan Weiss, Dick Giordano, Don Newton, Tenny Henson, Bob Wiacek, Vince Colletta, Tex Blaisdell, Bob Smith and Joe Rubinstein
Collects stories from SHAZAM #1-24, 26-35
$16.99, 560 pages


Oh dear. I believe those later issues were the attempts to draw Captain Marvel in a "realistic" manner, and put him in more "conventional" super-hero stories.
Oh dear.

GOLDEN AGE DR. FATE ARCHIVES VOL. 1 HC
Writer: Gardner Fox
Artists: Howard Sherman, Jon Chester Kozlak and Stan Aschmeier
Collects stories from MORE FUN COMICS #55-98
$75.00, 396 pages


As Golden Age material goes, this is mostly pretty good, but the price seems terribly high, even at the expanded page count.

THE HUNTRESS: THE DARKNIGHT DAUGHTER TP
Writer: Paul Levitz
Artists: Joe Staton, Steve Mitchell, Bob Layton, Bob Smith, Bruce Patterson, Jerry Ordway and Mike DeCarlo
Collects DC SUPER STARS #17 and stories from BATMAN FAMILY #18-20, WONDER WOMAN #271-287, 289-290 and 294-295
$19.99, 224 pages


Earth-2 Huntress stories! This will go nicely on my book-case next to the upcoming pre-Crisis Justice Society trade.
