Can someone tell me if an Aquaman Archives Volume 2 exists? A national book chain has such a book listed on it's website, complete with ISBN number. Everytime I look it up it is listed as "out of stock, unavailable". I find no trace of it anywhere else, so I wondered if anyone out there has it. Thanks for reading, JB.
I've never heard of or seen Aquaman Archives Vol. 2.
I'm 99% certain it doesn't exist.
The Grand Comics Database only lists one issue/volume of the Aquaman Archives, too.
Now I'm 100% certain.
I have found references to Aquaman Archives Vol. 2, and even a list of contents, at various places -- but wherever there is a publishing date, it's "TBD." All of my regular sources of info suggest only one has been published. I have seen no evidence that Volume 2 was ever published.
The material that was scheduled for that book is available though, in Showcase Presents: Aquaman vol 1, albeit in B&W. There are two more volumes, which carries us into 1968.
I'd love an Omnibus of this material, and I'd love even more a Golden Age Omnibus, a la Green Arrow. It's odd that DC hasn't flooded the market with Aquaman material, what with the movie's success. Maybe Nick Cardy's Aquaman simply doesn't look enough like Jason Momoa.
Looking at Comixology, it seems that less than half the issues slated for this archive have been digitized. I suspect, we won't see an archive edition until the various single issues have all been converted to digital format. The complete volume would include:
Showcase #s 32-33, Adventure Comics #284, Detective Comics #s 293-300, World's Finest Comics #s 125-133, and Aquaman #s 1-9.
