Comments

The “Complete Peanuts” compilation collection continues this month, with the series now reaching the mid-80s. The gift box set includes the newest volume plus the previous one.

George Perez’s entire Superman run is being collected, if one wants to see the “New 52” Superman Perez-style all in one volume.

Yep, it’s yet another re-solicitation of Archie’s 90s “Love Showdown” story, though older copies can probably still be found for less.
