So I got an early Christmas present. The Taschen editions of 75 Years Of Marvel and Winsor McCay's Little Nemo. That's right, under the Christmas tree.
Svensson still writes for Bleeding Cool. Retailers may have noticed that the upcoming Figment Hardcover, collecting the acclaimed multiple-printing miniseries by writer Jim Zub and artist Filipe Andrade, which had been set for a December release, was listed by Diamond as cancelled.

Frank Miller and Walt Simonson's Robocop Vs. Terminator Back In Print – And Launching Dark Horse's 'Artist's Edition' Line
And, since Dark Horse won't have the new Xerxes comic to accompany the release of the second 300 movie, this might do in a pinch. Available in both a hardcover collection and a "gallery edition", Robocop Vs Terminator not only found an entertaining way to marry the two continuities, with Robocop seen as an early Terminator[...]
