Quote from: "sikkbones"
the first one wasn't worth 9.99 US.


It's worth a lot more, but it had an introductory price of $9.95

That was always going to be a limited time deal.

Really looking forward to the second volume!

The first one was fine, but it was still clinging to the "let's be like the 1950s television series" concepts, and being a little too conventional in many of the stories. In the second volume Weisinger really starts to turn the knobs up to 11 and we see the explosive expansion of concepts we usually associate with the term "Silver Age". Stuff you could only do in comics!

More stories with Curt Swan art, the introduction of Bizarro World and their "backwards" behavior, more super-villain appearances, Red Kryptonite, the return of seeming one-shot characters like Lori Lemaris and Titano to become regulars, the classic "Super-Menace" story...  and "the Night of March 31st!"

Great Moons of Krypton, this should be fun!

The Supergirl solo stories are supposed to be appearing instead in future volumes of SHOWCASE PRESENTS SUPERMAN FAMILY, sharing them with JIMMY OLSEN and LOIS LANE stories.

And, umm... SQUAWKY THE SUPER-PARROT??? Geez, I can't miss that one for sure!
