The fact they are reprinting "How Luthor Met Superboy" is a step in the right direction. I cross my fingers in the vain hope that Superboy will be back in continuity...

Also, don't forget that Justice League season 1 will be available on DVD by April...


DC isn't scared to reprint Superboy, I mean they do have all of the Legion Sliver Age stories collected.

Just not a lot of solo reprints.

Hopefully there will be a showcase in the future.

I'm glad to see DC is continuing the JLA/JSA team-up reprints! I have the originals of these, but I'll still get the TPB. I wonder why they left Cary Bates' name out of the writer credits? He even appears on the cover (next to Captain Marvel's right ear).

I always wanted to read those issues, so I am really looking forward to getting this collection.

Actually, I think DC made a typo in their description. JLA #122 wasn't a JLA/JSA team-up, so I doubt it is in this TPB. #123-124 feature Elliot S! Maggin and Cary Bates on Earth-Two, with Cary as a super-villain. #135-137 have the JLA and JSA teaming with six Golden Age heroes from Fawcett Comics (Bulletman & Bulletgirl, Mr. Scarlet & Pinky, Ibis the Invincible, and Spy Smasher) with the Marvel Family showing up as well (hence the TPB's cover image). #147-148 send the JLA and JSA to the 30th Century to team-up with the Legion of Super-Heroes.

Personally, I thought the Maggin & Bates story was pretty funny, but Unca Cheeks has another opinion (spoilers).

The rest are Iron Age stuff.


In details:

MOS #4: Lex's first appearance in the new continuity.

SUPERMAN Vol. II #9: Lex offers to a girl a month with him. She will be paid with a million $. The girl could accept, but Lex goes away.

SUPERMAN Vol. II #131: Lex arranges the assassin of Mayor Berkowitz, then kills the man who killed the girl he loved when he was a kid.

LEX 2000: Lex president.

With these and the pre-Crisis stories, it will be a good tp. I'll not buy it for now because I already have almost every story.
