Just looked over DC's February solicits. All-Star Superman hardcover. Jeff Smith's Shazam. And...

Cover by Nick Cardy

Do you dare to enter the House of Mystery? This value-priced collection includes stories from HOUSE OF MYSTERY #195-211. These fantastic black-and-white tales of mystery and suspence from the 1970s feature thrilling stories with surprise twist endings that will keep readers on the edges of their seats!
Advance-solicited; on sale March 7 552 pg, B&W, $16.99 US

MARCH?!?!?!?! Still. It will EXIST. Some day. Some day in march. Is it March yet?

I'm also surprised it's another Cardy cover. You'd think Adams or Wrightson (presumably) would be the draw. And yet... CEMETARY CLOSED -- NO ONE DIES TODAY! If Joe Orlando ever wants to build me a Way-Back Machine and also turn me into a woman, I will have all his babies in the Seventies.

Also, I know it's advanced solicited, but they could've fixed the top of the image, even if they don't have the proper trade dress ready yet. However... AWESOMEAWESOMEAWESOME.

Where's my Metal Men Showcase, Where's my Doom Patrol Showcase, Where's my Flash Showcase? I know they are already archived but so is JLA and Captain Marvel. Still good news with this release!

I'm surprized by the lack of Flash, mostly. And I'd love a b&w Golden Age Wonder Woman. Of course, Batman took a while.

But what I really want is a House of Secrets Showcase.
