Put This In Print. I Will Sell It.

From my side of the counter it looks all pretty simple. You’re a publisher and you have a great comic with a big name creator attached? It’s a book you already paid for years ago and all that needs to be done is to collect it up so people can buy it? Put it in print!

Please?!

Perhaps the reason why these publishers aren’t reprinting these is because they just don’t think anyone wants them. Well, if that’s the case I plan to change that. Here on the Isotope Communique I’m going to dig up some lost gems of yesteryear and ask the industry to let me sell them. Because these are comics I can definitely sell!

The Complete Steve Ditko DC/Charlton Library

Ditko created some of the greatest comic icons of all time and there’s a real revival of interest in his work in recent years. And with several recent books dedicated to the artist, a groundswell of wacky oddball books from the golden and silver ages garnering attention, hundreds of titles reprinted in the pages of DC Archives, and hoards of readers devouring up Jack Kirby Omnibii at 50 bucks a pop… one would think The Complete Steve Ditko DC/Charlton Library would have been printed years ago. But it hasn’t. The Creeper is a good start,  but where’s our Hawk & Dove, Starman, The Question, Blue Beetle, and Captain Atom? Or better yet, how about the mind-melting comic book brilliance that is Shade The Changing Man?!

Hey DC, let’s not wait for Ditko to die before people can discover more of his work, please.

Put this in print. I will sell it.
