I started a similar thread several months ago, but I'm starting this new one because Amazon has listed a bunch of additional SPs for 2013, and I think it would be convenient to have them all here.

These are Amazon release dates, so they normally show up a week or two earlier in local comic book shops and book stories.

It's a pretty good mix of genres. Included in the new list are a couple that we thought we wouldn't see, because they break through the supposed mid-1970s (and post-Silver Age) reprint barrier. Still no Bob Hope or Jerry Lewis, though.

I made it sound like I was reading Wonder Woman in the 50s. That's not the case, of course; I've read stories reprinted from the period in the 70s.
