Somebody Reprint These!

By | Friday, March 08, 2013 2 comments
It's Friday evening, so you're not reading this in the first place, and I'm exhausted in the second place, so today's post is just going to be a list of comics I'd like to see reprinted. Why? Frankly, so I can read them! No high-minded ideals of broadening people's appreciate of lesser known works or anything, I just want to be able to read these for myself.
  • Don Martin's Captain Klutz books
  • The Friday Foster comic strip from the early 1970s
  • All 40-some years of Gus Arriola's Gordo strips
  • Jackie Ormes' Torchy in Heartbeats
  • Corto Maltese -- I mean, c'mon!
  • Stan Lee's Secrets Behind the Comics from 1947
  • André LeBlanc's "Intellectual Amos" stories from the 1940s
Somebody get on those for me, please!

I'm with you on "Corto Maltese". They tried it last year, but it was that awful trimmed/redesigned one. I had pre-ordered the book, so I was stuck with it, but it didn't survive the recent purge.

Were those Don Martin strips reprinted in that slipcased hardcover Complete Don Martin MAD book a few years back? I have it, but never read it too deeply.

I want a "reprint" of Stan Lee's Stabur VHS interview series from the early 1990s. I know lots of those videos are on YouTube, but those would be fun and convenient on DVD.

No, that Don Martin collection only contains his work from within MAD magazine itself. My understanding is the Klutz material somehow fell under a different licensing arrangement since it was published under the MAD books line.

As for the Sabur videos, I've never actually seen them. Mostly because I wasn't that interested in most of the Image subjects, but also because I felt that Stan hadn't added much to overall comics conversation in years even back then.
