"Wonder Woman: The Golden Age Omnibus Vol 2 was released on July 5. It collects Comic Cavalcade # 6-13, Sensation Comics # 25-48, and Wonder Woman # 8-15.
Adam Strange: The Silver Age Omnibus Vol 1 was released earlier this week on…"
"I checked with my LCS today: all orders for DC Horror: House of Secrets Vol. 1 (the one collecting #92-97) have been cancelled. I t seems too many retailers complained that a $50 book collecting only six issues would never sell. It has been replaced…"
"To me this was a pretty average issue of ASM; some good here, some bad. I first read this story when it was reprinted in Marvel Tales in 1980. Eleven year old me would have loved the cover and hated that the villains were illusions…"
"Also, a Bronze Age Swamp Thing Omnibus has benn solicited for October 4 release collecting everything prior to Alam Moore.

"My memory was so vague I broke down and looked it up.
EC veteran Joe Orlando took over House of Mystery with issue #174 (a reprint) and turned to horror/supernatural with the next issue, introducing Cain as host (like the EC horror hosts). That was…"
"That was when House of Mystery and House of Secrets went from "suspense/thriller/puzzle" stories to, if not outright horror, supernatural based tales with disturbing endings.

"I couldn't find the smaller version you spoke of on Amazon, but I did find the Steven T. Seagle version in trade. Could there have been a solicitation error?

I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
