Cheers to the glorious day that DC decides to reprint more of the Quality and Fawcett stories, soon may it come. Other than the Shazam! family and Kid Eternity, has DC reprinted more than a single story of any Quality or Fawcett feature? Off the top of my head, I can only remember single reprints of The Ray, Black Condor, and Phantom Lady, though there must have been others back in the 100 page era.srca1941 wrote: Quality was similar, but has a much longer "all of the rest" series with some really short runs (just one or two stories in a few cases). Fawcett had the most trouble because I don't feel like the characters have nearly the same name recognition in the DCU even though a number of features have both the length and quality to justify solo books. (Those that I've combined for "America's Greatest Comics." - Detailed map still forthcoming...)
I suspect that DC's interest in reprinting Quality and Fawcett material is low, at best. Fans are lucky that many of the Quality and Fawcett books can be found online if one is willing to look for them.srca1941 wrote: Well, of course, there have been multiple Plastic Man and Blackhawk stories reprinted. I think that there were at least a couple of Doll Man stories reprinted in the 100-Page Super Spectaculars and Wanted. Captain Triumph had at least one story reprinted, maybe a couple. (Which is odd, since I don't think he was ever actually used in a new story...)
I was just about to post this. A few days back I lost out on a Spectre Archives for about $90 on eBay. Then I saw the Showcase also sells for inflated prices. Then I checked the tpb Wrath of the Spectre reprinting the 1970s Adventure Comics stories and that looks like it sells for $30 - $45 (its cover price was 20).buddybeat wrote: so just a quick ebay and Amazon check - recent actually sold auctions with bidders have the Golden Age Spectre Archives going repeatedly in the $75-80 range, and Amazon showing $90 for a used - and the Silver-Bronze Showcase Presents The Spectre in the $45-50 range on ebay and $95(!) on Amazon. Spectre has pent up demand, DC!!!
