    They're reprinting issue 1 in the yearbook? *sigh*

    I realize the graphic novel may have been a been light with only the 4 annual books but why not include the Order of Battle Books or the 3d ones or even an Action Force comic?

    No clue. I remember they took a while with this one, this set was announced awhile back. I would love to see the Action Force comics reprinted.

    I could have done without another reprint of #1, but I'll still try to grab this. The Jonboy Meyers cover looks awesome. I'd love to see that released as a poster.

    It definitely is an improvement over his previous covers.

    The little blurb in the white quote box "everything you need to know about AMERICA's favorite heros" brings a tear to my eye...thats the joes in the right colors, style and look they deserve!

    I was just re-reading my yearbooks a few week back. There's another reprint of Lady Doomsday that I picked up recently as well, but I'll have to go home and do some digging to remind myself what is was.
