For Those Who Want Their Devil Dinosaur Fix…

4 Comments

Don’t worry: Annihilation will be released as an omnibus in May; nonetheless, the May solicitations from Marvel feature a few graphic novels omni-fans might be interested in.

The Devil Dinosaur omnibus has been long out-of-print, but those eager to read the Jack Kirby-helmed tale will want to snap up the upcoming 184-page Complete Collection book. Here’s the synopsis:

“The adventures of a boy and his dinosaur! At the dawn of human evolution, during a time when primitive man co-existed with the dinosaurs that dominated the Earth, a unique friendship is born — a friendship that may be the only thing that can save mankind! Meet Moon Boy and his Tyrannosaurus pal — the red-skinned Devil Dinosaur — as they face off against giant spiders, enormous ants, and rampaging dinosaurs of all shapes and sizes! And don’t forget the Small Folk, led by the warlord Seven Scars, who rejected Moon Boy for befriending the fearsome Devil — and who aim to dominate the forest by force! Throw in aliens from outer space, and you’ve got a timeless romp through the ages — delivered courtesy of the imagination of Jack “King” Kirby!

 

Collecting Devil Dinosaur #1-9.”

There’s also a bevvy of galactic spacey-wacey adventures, including Marvel BoyGalactus the Devourer and Avengers: The Legacy of Thanos. Just in time for the Guardians of the Galaxy, featuring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Lee Pace and the beautiful Karen Gillan!

And on a personal note, I highly advise you pick up Fury MAX: My War Gone By HC, which is simply brilliant: fantastic writing and gorgeous art throughout. Here’s what Marvel say:

“Written by GARTH ENNIS

Penciled by GORAN PARLOV

Cover by DAVE JOHNSON

Colonel Nick Fury, veteran CIA operative, has been at war for a lifetime. Now he sits alone in a dank hotel room, coughing his confession into a tape recorder, laying out a legacy of carnage stretching back to World War II. Because when that war ended, another one began — and Fury sought it out, regardless of the cost to those who loved him, including loyal George Hatherly, congressman Pug McCuskey and the beautiful Shirley DeFabio. From Indochina to Cuba, Vietnam to Nicaragua, Fury battled across the decades, encountering young Marine sniper Frank Castle and the nightmarish Barracuda — his constant lust for combat blinding him to all other concerns. But the end is coming. The debt is long past due. And Fury’s true legacy will soon be written in blood for all to see. Collecting Fury MAX #1-13.

 

312 PGS. Explicit Content.”

UPDATED: 6th June 2011.

NOTES:

All details set to change.

Bold:     Best deal.

–:           Omnibus not available/ OOP (out-of-print)

Underlined:        Variant edition only. Generally, variants copies have a more limited printing, so are rarer to purchase.

Some items are not in stock at forbiddenplanet.com, but are, apparently, available to order. I have decided not to include these prices as there is no guarantee that you will get the omnibus (drawing on numerous personal experiences), despite their expected delivery of omnibuses within 21 days. If you want to risk it – bearing in mind that they do not normally let you know if they can get the omnibus in – please see the forbiddenplanet.com website.

Things to remember:

Look at regular blog for deals at other stores, like whsmith.co.uk, ebay.co.uk, and waterstones.com. Please see the Pre-Order Price List for upcoming releases.

All prices are correct at time of update. Prices do not include postage and packaging.

“The Old Order Changeth!”: 40% off the Avengers!

Leave a comment

“And there came a day, a day unlike any other, when Earth’s mightiest heroes and heroines found themselves united against a common threat. On that day, the Avengers were born—to fight the foes no single super hero could withstand! Through the years, their roster has prospered, changing many times, but their glory has never been denied! Heed the call, then—for now, the Avengers Assemble!”

Avengers #16

I haven’t been this excited about an omnibus in a while.

February 2012 sees the release of The Avengers omnibus, collecting Stan Lee, Jack Kirby and Don Heck’s Avengers #1- 30, which introduces several characters including Kang the Conqueror, Wonder Man and, of course, the re-introduction of Captain America! (It’s odd, however, that the omnibus finishes at #30; Lee went on to write and edit until issue 35.) The HC will be the equivalent of buying the first three volumes of the Marvel Masterworks: Avengers editions.

Art by Jack "The King" Kirby!

The 728-page book has an RRP of £75, but anyone after the Jack Kirby DM – that’s Direct Market – cover (a re-coloured version of Avengers #01) should go to forbiddenplanet.co.uk for a 40% saving:

http://www.forbiddenplanet.co.uk/index.php?main_page=product_music_info&products_id=66206

The offer stands until 21st September; as anyone with a calendar in their peripheral will know… that’s tomorrow, so get over there straight away!

The DM Kirby cover.

If you’ve missed it, don’t panic; amazon.co.uk has a pre-order price of £45.54:

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Avengers-Omnibus-1-Jack-Kirby/dp/0785158464/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1316517898&sr=8-1

Bookdepository.co.uk currently has it for £47.46, while forbiddenplanet.com has a price of £51.74.

Avengers #20

John Romita Jr. (my favourite artist by a mile) provides a variant cover, which promises to be just stunning. Forbiddenplanet.co.uk has this available for £50.25, which I expect will be the price of the Kirby cover after tomorrow.

The JRJR variant cover

Despite Amazon predicting 29th, the omnibus is expected around 15th February, plenty of time before the release of the The Avengers Movie. There are obviously a few omnibuses out there for Kirby fans, including his runs on Captain
America
, Fantastic Four, Devil Dinosaur and The Eternals.

Original Eternals advert

The first Avengers comic I read was the milestone #16, which heralded a new line-up for Earth’s Mightiest, and since then, I’ve loved them, just like every Marvel fan. While the original team – debuting in September 1963 – comprised of Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Ant man and the Wasp (with Cap joining the team in #4), issue 16 saw the roster change, with Captain America headlining a team of Hawkeye, Scarlet Witch, and Quicksilver.
