It's been a while since I've listed future Showcase Presentses from Amazon and other sources, and there have been a lot of changes, mostly delays, since the last one I posted in December 2012. Here's the latest I can find as of this date, 5/6/13:

The schedule looks heavy on genre and light on the super-heroes, and there are some barren months. I doubt that any but the first couple come out according to this schedule.

I agree. As someone said on cable news today, "You shouldn't need luck to cross a bridge in America."

Incidentally, Awkwardman, how are your parents, Mr. Might and Mermaid? And have you heard much from Merryman lately? I always hope you guys can get the band back together for another run!

The "Showcase Presents: Superman Family #4" cover leaped to mind yesterday, after the occurrence on I-5 north of Seattle--yeah, I've gotta get out more.

And thank God for a disaster where no one got killed.

I've added something new for the list, SP The Great Disaster featuring The Atomic Knights, set for Feb. 2014 release, according to Amazon. They don't show a cover, so I've included the one for the color hardback collection from a couple of years ago. I have that and it was a lot of fun.

Most of us know this SP version was announced and canceled several years ago, but like SP Jonah Hex Vol. 2, its apparently been resurrected. Maybe someday we'll get that long-promised SP Captain Carrot and his Amazing Zoo Crew.

True, but it is also now being released in TPB format. It is in the solicitations posted here:

Mr. Silver Age said:

It's too bad, as it might not sell well enough for another volume, which means they may not get enough to do an SP down the road. The Suicide Squad was put out in a smaller, color paperback, and only one was done. I would bet it would've done much better as an SP volume, as was originally planned. OTOH, they did two SSOV hardcovers and never produced an SP.

But the good news is that Amazon is now offering it for 53 bucks, not 75.

OK, for the rest of us who have no idea what that cover is, you GOTTA post a link, or an image for us.

Otherwise, we're left out in the cold.... and I know you don't want that to happen....do you?

Sorry to leave you hanging, Kirk. I tried to include the cover in my response, but failed, and then I figured, "Hey, this is the internet, where information is just a few clicks away anyway." Thanks for posting the cover, Cap, and thanks for running this blog.

I think you may have me confused with the Awkwardman who appeared in the Inferior Five. I get that a lot. To clarify matters, I'm the Awkwardman who hasn't the patience to learn how to post a comic book cover on a blog, hence the name.

You have to download it from a site to your computer and then upload it from there, using the little icon (second from left) in the line above the message box. If you can't download them to the computer you're on, a link to an image will suffice. Usually, the GCD has whatever we're looking for: http://www.comics.org/issue/1110131/cover/4/.

Or, you could just look at the first image that started this topic.

OH, I see.  Duh!

Anyway, thank you all for helping out a bro, here.  LOL!

I find that, in moments of embarrassment, it's easy to extricate oneself by quoting Giant Turtle Boy Olsen: "CRRRGGG! CRRRGGG!"

People tend to leave you alone after that.
