In previous years, this was a memory box so we didn't miss any good nominations for the Cappies. With the Cappies hypertimed away, that doesn't mean we have to discontinue these threads. I've always liked going back at the end of the year and seeing the books and stories and moments that people really champion -- including plenty of stuff that I've forgotten about come Christmastime. 

So have at it, Legionnaires! It's a bold new year! What in 2017 has knocked you out?

Two pretty cool comic strip collections shipped yesterday:

Peanuts Every Sunday Vol. 5 (up to 1975 now)

Li'l Abner Vol. 9 (Abnert and Daisy Mae get married)

Batman Annual 2 is a phenomenal one-shot, a look at Batman & Catwoman's early courtship by Tom King and Lee Weeks.

Also, in the past few months, I can't overlook Astro City 47 and 48, the heartwarming (and heartbreaking?)  story of G-Dog, by Kurt Busiek and Mike Norton. Loved that two-parter. 

And Silver Surfer #14, the final installment of the Slott/Allred run, underlines what a treasure that series was.

Gah! I still haven't read this!

I bought the hardcover from Amazon when it came out, but I have yet to read it. I hope to find some time this weekend.

This is a standout sci-fi story which almost certainly would make my best of the year list.

I do need to add, though, just how much I loved the Batman/Elmer Fudd book. This is definitely a contender.

2018 Starts Here

SKY MASTERS OF THE SPACE FORCE
: A collection of this cold war era space race comic strip by Jack Kirby and Wally Wood has been on my wish list for a long time. Every time a publisher announces it, it never materializes. Hermes Press solicited a collection of the dailies for release April 2017, but their solicitations are always at least six month behind schedule. More recently, another publisher (I forget which one) solicited a collection of the Sunday strips for January 31 release. I wasn’t holding my breath, but was pleasantly surprised to see a Sky Masters collection in my P&H last week. But it wasn’t the Sunday one, it was the dailies one from last year! That means, in another nine days, we may well have collections of the complete Sky Masters, dailies and Sundays, in two volumes.

LISA's LEGACY TRILOGY SLIPCASE: Last year Kent State Press released a collection of Funky Winkerbean strips dealing with a main character's cancer. Now they have added a prelude collection and an epilogue collection which deal with the introduction of the character and the aftermath of her death respectively. They are available either individually or as part of a slip-cased set, but if you want them in hardcover you have to buy the slipcase.

Y'know, without the Cappies, I don't see a need to break this thread up into years anymore. I'm just going to rename it and keep it going, as Jeff has done. 

Oh, yeah. I didn't even think about the year changing.

I agree: without the Cappies there's no reason to break this into individual years.

Just announce: 2018 STARTS HERE

(Well, three posts back.)

I just used my Mod powers to add it to the top of your post...at a size that'll keep it nice and eye-catching.

As long as you use your Mod powers for good. photo tongue.gif

YIKES!

I figured it would be most helpful if it could be seen during a quick scroll when you're not actually reading anything. I hope it's not too distracting.
