My Wishes Come True

During the months I was on break, a number of things happened that I thought were interesting.
One was that several of my suggestions for Collected Classics Wishlists have become true.
This will of course only encourage me to make more such mockups.

The Thing Liberty Legion Premier Classic I asked forwill soon be available. Thing: Liberty Legion on Amazon





Interesting thing about this one. When it was first announced, the mockup cover that was being used for the announcement on various websites looked amazingly similary to my mockup cover. That has changed, but I heard the gold color is still going to be used.

Another one I'm looking forward to is one I first mentioned back in November, albeit, it was a tag along wish on my Darkoth post, but still it's nice to see the Fantastic Four: The World's Greatest Comic Magazine coming out on Amazon soon.



Finally, I was a bit surprised to see DC caving in to our demands for a collection of the Deluxe Comics adventures of the Thunder Agents. The T.H.U.N.D.E.R. Agents Archives Vol. 7
one that was a little easy to predict as DC had an ongoing of the Thunder Agents at the time, and they have been known to reprint material from other publishers, but it was interesting to see how quickly they got this one out.



IMO, my cover is better looking than the one they are actually going with because of the better use of the Ditko art. What do you think?

I look forward to seeing more of my wishes being fulfilled by DC in the future!

I agree that your cover is better.

What I'm waiting for is a hardcover re-release of some of the Marvel giant-size annuals from the 70s . . . I know it will never happen but it would be cool.

Does my heart good to see this place back again! The internets weren't the same without it.

@JP Cote - Man! I loved those Giant Sized Annuals! I would love to see some nicely restored version of some of them in a slick hardcover, or an omnibus edition. I'll try to mock one up!

@MattComix - Hey Matt! Thank you! Yeah, with my daughter out of school, things have settled down enough around the old homestead to allow me to post in the mornings again.
