New Spirit Hardcover For 75th Anniversary, And MAD Heritage Books

Image (2)At the retailer roadshow in New York this Friday, DC Comics announced a new Spirit hardcover to celebrate the character's 75th anniversary this summer. Not exactly sure how they will tie this into Dynamite getting the rights to publish new stories with the character, it's likely to be a heritage-themed publication.

Well timed, folks, this is after all Will Eisner Week…

Talking of heritage, DC also announced Mad Magazine collections for the work of Jack Davis, Will Elder and Wally Wood. And were keen to emphasise that the issue of Mad that Weird Al Yankovic is guest editing will see him heavily involved, not just lending his name to it.

And a reminder that when DC Comics move to Burbank, Mad Magazine at least will be staying put…
