"I think Aquaman had a more extended origin later in the series, but I might be thinking of the Silver Age origin. Anyway, that's why I want the collection, so I can refer to vaguely remembered stories."
"Aquaman's debut and origin from More Fun Comics #73 (N'41) was first reprinted in Secret Origins #7 (N'74) but the actual origin was told, not shown, in a panel or two. Basically, his father found some way to turn…"
"I'm disappointed in Aquaman as well, but I do have all of those books anyway, so it's not a crisis for me. But we've already got one Showcase and two Archives of the same material in print as it is. With the "Search for…"
"I suspect they are looking at how many are pre-ordered by Amazon and other retailers. Not enough interest, they cancel it. I'm still waiting for the Adam Strange softcover that they have solicited twice and the Nightshade TPB that I ordered…"
"DC has canceled three big reprint books, according to Bleeding Cool:
Aquaman: The Silver Age Omnibus Hardcover
Legends Of The Dark Knight: Steve Englehart Hardcover
Super Friends: Saturday Morning Comics Vol 1 Hardcover."
"Of course I already own books that cover Steranko's entire run on Nick Fury and another that includes his X Men, Captain America and anthology stories but to have some of those in an oversize edition ..."

"Here are a few series I’m curious about…
IRON MAN 2020: Way back when the character “Iron Man 2020” was introduced in the Machine Man limited series (1984) I thought to myself, “Man, that’s gonna come back to…"
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.
