Fantagraphics Does Superheroes
PSP Fans ....from our good friend Mikey D who despite the rumblings of Mount Redoubt sent me this link that very much interested him and ask I share with all you fanatics
Sure,... I went there...and ended up buying:
I Shall Destroy All The Civilized Planets! - Fletcher Hanks
Watchmen: Tales of the Black Freighter & Under the Hood - Gerard Butler
The 5000 Year Leap: A Miracle That Changed the World - W. Cleon Skousen,
And .... Supermen! - by Greg Sadowski ... which looks great, by the way!!
Looks like our friends The Flame and The Face.. and others are in the book. Reprints of some GREAT stories from the 1930's to the early '40's!! Some really Classic stuff!!
Can't wait to get my copy!!
Fletcher Hanks' STARDUST is in there, too!! A strange hero ...on strange adventures!!
Thanks, for the heads-up, Ranger!!
What's become of MikeyD???
We haven't heard from him in a long time!!

I was thinking about picking this up. Anyone have a copy (or have seen a copy), and could spill on what it's like (quality wise)?
I just wish Stardust the Superwizard was part of the SP universe
Thanks, Mikey,--- you're missed here.
Thanks for pointing out our heroes!!
I don't think it's been released yet, jsf.

I ordered it.!! Looks like some great stories.!!
flood, did you see Stardust by Mike Allred a few months ago.

Allred's Madman experience... and Allred's "wonky" style made him "just right" to do Stardust!!
I agree.!! I wished the SuperWizard was a part of the SP Universe. I wished DE had Allred doing Stardust ...right here... under the DE banner.
