    (excerpt)

    The ill-conceived DC Comics Classics Library series—which so far has been dedicated to reprinting stories of middling historical and/or aesthetic value, at a needlessly high price—continues to get it wrong with Justice League Of America By George Pérez: Volume One (DC). Pérez’s work on the early-’80s JLA is worth collecting: Though these comics aren’t as memorable as Pérez’s collaborations with Marv Wolfman on the contemporaneous New Teen Titans, Pérez’s art is dynamic, and Gerry Conway’s stories are generally entertaining. (Though they all end sort of abruptly, as though Pérez ran out of paper before he ran out of script.) And the CCL package is well-assembled; it includes an introduction, an afterword, and bonus art, and the printing job is pristine. But the price point remains ridiculous for this series. DC is asking for $40 for a normal-sized hardcover containing reprints of only six issues. Pérez only penciled four more issues of Justice League during this run. How hard would it have been to include those issues, instead of shuffling them off to Volume Two, which is also $40? For that matter, why does the price need to be so high to begin with? By contrast, the new collection Final Crisis: Legion Of 3 Worlds (DC) is of a comparable size and arguably of superior quality in terms of its art and story, and yet it only lists for $20. Writer Geoff Johns spins off from DC’s Final Crisis crossover to tell a story of three Legions Of Super-Heroes from three different universes, banding together under Superman’s leadership to fight the evil Superboy-Prime and The Legion Of Super-Villains. The story offers fairly typical “Here’s a bunch of old characters fighting” fare, but with Pérez handling the art chores (with inks by Scott Koblish), both the characters and the fighting look absolutely awesome. This is a collection for people who like a lightning pace and page after page of costumed mayhem. And it’s a relative bargain… JLA: C-; Legion: B+

    SDCC DC COLLECTED EDITIONS

    The DC Collected Editions Panel began with an introduction by Georg Brewer, DC's Vice President for design and retail product development. He was joined by Vice President for sales and marketing, Bob Wayne, and Senior Editor for collected editions, Dale Crain.

    Due to the free-flowing nature of this panel, the question and answer session took up nearly the entire presentation. There was an open exchange of ideas, and often an informal "would you buy this?" poll taken by the panelists in attendance. Often, obscure titles were brought up, and surprisingly, Georg Brewer didn't discount the possibility of producing collected editions of various comics' series, be they obscure or groundbreaking.

    Q: What about Justice League in the Decade format?
    A: We're taking an approach to collecting different stories from different eras - as far as the best-of trade paperbacks and things along those lines.

    The TRIGON collection is a trade and the next Perez Titans material you see is will be the second volume of the Archives, probably in 2004. Yes, we'll be recoloring his JLA and Wonder Woman books when we get to them. No, George won't be doing new covers, as mentioned earlier.

    Right now, the Perez volumes are moving slowly through the system. Until we need the covers, we're not sure which way we're going. Neither JLA or WW are currently on the schedule so we have time to make this work out.

    Yes, the plot to #4 is approved but there's no way George can do all that's left and still have all 4 come out this year. Neither DC nor Marvel, I suspect, want to wait on a bi-monthly schedule so we need for George to be well into #4 before scheduling the monthly event.

    From ES
    The Trade Paperback you reported does not exist. This is one guys plan on how he would like to see them released. He even made a follow up post this morning saying the same thing. Bob has talked about releasing George's JLA issues but nothing official yet. Just like Marv wrote the intro for the second archive addition theirs a intro out at DC but the book might not show up (maybe a future Errata). DC has probably commissioned hundreds of intro stories for books and they never saw print. That's the way the entertainment industry goes.

    Are those tps really gonna come out? If so, when?

    No, DC has announced no plans to publish these books. My list is merely speculative. Sorry about the confusion and welcome to the DC Message Boards.

    I think Forge and Edge are interesting ideas but now that CrossGen has repurposed them into a new size, I need to see those before I offer any opinion/observation.

    ...

    Yes, I know what's on our March and May-December schedule. However, as stated elsewhere, we constantly revise the schedule based on market conditions. I'd much rather not tell you something is coming out in a specific month and then have us change it. For March, which is locked down, we will have a volume of JUSTICE LEAGUE ADVENTURES, NEW TEEN TITANS: THE JUDAS CONTRACT (back to press), WONDER WOMAN: PARADISE FOUND (issues #170-177), GREEN LANTERN: EMERALD DAWN II and 100 BULLETS: COUNTERFIFTH DETECTIVE.

    ...

    Yes, we're doing our homework on collecting George Perez's run of Wonder Woman but exact details and release dates will be forthcoming. Part of the problem is that with older film it takes longer to inspect and prep.


    posted December 13, 2002 08:57 AM

    ...

    SwordQuest, with gorgeous George Perez, is owned by Atari, which is now longer an AOL Time Warner company. Therefore, it'd be tough to produce. It was also drawn for a different size and wouldn't necessarily adapt to the traditional comic book trim size. Finally, I don't recall if the fourth book was ever finished. I do recall, though, seeing the real prize, the jewel-encrusted sword at a trade show and thought it looked awesome.


    posted December 23, 2002 09:07 AM

    The paper stocks we use on the trade paperbacks are selected using a variety of criteria. For example, are we picking up existing film? How was the material colored (believe it or not, changing paper stock may suddenly ruin a beautiful color job). And of course, there's that pesky issue of price. Our commitment to a quality package never diminishes.

    Yes, we're talking about collecting George's JLA and Wonder Woman material. However, given his detailed work, we have to make sure the film is intact and complete. If not, then we need to address how best to restore the work without ruining the look of the artwork which does george and the reader a disservice. And obviously, we'll be looking for an optimal marketing opportunity to release such collections.

    ...

    Covers are very important to the overall mix, but should a collection have 185 story pages, 5 covers and a minimum of 3 pages of front matter, that's 193 pages. The next signatur eup makes it 208 pages and raises the issue of how to fill the remainign pages and by going up a signature does that also mean the price has to increase? We look at these issues closely before making a decision.

     January 4, 2003 | Perez's JLA to be Archived
    From Kirk
    I thought I'd mention that on the DC message boards under archives, they're saying that we might see the George Perez JLA stories collected in a tradepaper back. I just hope the quality is good. Even thought there's things to worry about like War or the Economy we also have a lot to look forward to this year. Me, I'm looking forward to the JLA/Avengers series more than anything else except maybe the Hard-Cover that comes later.
