Doug: If there's one thing we rely on in these parts, it's reprints of comics from days of yore. You simply wouldn't have a Bronze Age Babies blog to hang out at if these hardcovers and trade paperbacks didn't exist. Karen has said more than once that we truly are living in the golden age of comic book reprints, and she couldn't be more right.
Doug: We talk about reprints often, I know -- most recently just a couple of weeks ago. But I want to pin you down today and ask you to state publicly one book that you are just really happy to own. Now we all know that our comic book loves are pretty fluid and what is number one now may not be so next month. But for today at least, what's a reprint collection you own that is prized?
Doug: For me, it's the very book that Karen and I will be working out of in the month of November -- Tales of Asgard by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. We have the first two Mondays done and ready for your viewing, and as I was doing my part on the first one I was swept by a sense of warm satisfaction that Marvel had the care to put this fun little series between two covers and price it affordably. Overall, the Big Two are doing a pretty nice job of rolling out their older material in one format or another. But to have these supplemental stories of Thor and his mates separate from the Essentials was a stroke of genius.
Doug: So let us hear what is on your warm fuzzy list today. And yeah -- it might change tomorrow, but that's OK...
