There have been 4 drop-dead gorgeous TPB's released. I would track them down if I were you Mel.

Maybe, maybe...

Break my streak of buying no comics related material since 1971? Cool

Even better, they just released this month the set of dailies in a nice *cheap* hardcover.  ISBN 1402737858, $13 on amazon.   This covers strips from 1939 to 1942.

I haven't checked it out yet.  Is the quality any different than the deluxe slipcase hardcover edition from a few years back?

Man, that's a great site!  It reminds of the wonderful days of yore when The Comic Reader would reprint the comic strips of Superman and Batman (about 2 pages/2 weeks worth) in their pages.  

I REALLY wish Kitchen Sink had continued on with more editions of their paperbacks.  I've read and reread those strips about 100 times!  Wink

And sometime this week, I'm gonna give your site a link on mine!  I'm gonna post about your site on my Yahoo Club now, at least!  LOL

I'm glad you all like my site. It's really starting to take shape in the past few weeks as I have more time to spend on it these days. Currently I am working through indexing the daily strips from 1948 to 1950, and there are some really interesting stories (the Ogies come back, for example). I also have a lead on the rest of the 1943 Sunday strips.

Great site! The design on it is fantastic, too. I've never seen most of this stuff before; the Sundays are gorgeous.
