Dr. K Live at HeroesCon 2008!
This weekend, I'm heading to HeroesCon in Charlotte, North Carolina. I've been going to this convention the last couple of years, and it's been a blast.
I'll be on the floor, getting stuff signed and looking for bargains that can provide later installments of the blog. I'm also planning to take pictures during the show and post updates every night on the blog, but we'll see how that goes.
At last year's show, Chris Sims, Chad Bowers, and I attended a DC Comics panel run by Dan DiDio. During the Q&A, I stood up and asked if DC would publish more Jack Kirby Omnibuses for OMAC and The Demon. Clearly, my request was made with such authority that DC went ahead and published this:
with The Demon Omnibus on its way in a few months.
Now that I have this 100% success record, I'm considering very carefully what to ask for next. My first thought leaned toward Steve Ditko reprint collections for Beware...The Creeper, Hawk and Dove, and Shade: The Changing Man. I'd also like to see DC do a nice collection of Alex Toth material. However, I also wanted to open the floor to suggestions from readers: do you have a series that you would like to see DC reprint?
I promise to use this power responsibly.
