The June 27/July 4 issue of Entertainment Weekly features "The New Classics: Books," with WATCHMEN is #13 in a listing that reads, "The greatest super hero story ever told and proof that comics are capable of smart, emotionally resonant narratives worthy of the label literature."

Also on the list at #46 is THE SANDMAN, with the text, "Channeling Tolkien and Jack Kirby [Neil] Gaiman creates a romantic, tragic dream king who straddles mythology and imagination . . . a classic work of fantasy lit in comics form."

I got worried when I saw Green Lantern on the delayed list, then I noticed the word Corps. after still sucks that it is, but glad it wasn't Green Lantern.

I'm not really worried or bothered by the delays on Batman or GLCorps.
Its only a week or two, here or there.

What I am disappointed about is the cancellation of the Ambush Bug special that was to reprint his early Superman appearances.

It was to be the first in this series of DC reprints that I wanted to buy as I hadn't read hose early appearances and I hadn't found the original issues in back issue bins (at least not in a decent, readable condition).

Here's hoping DC releases a big TPB collecting those appearances, and both of his specials and minis.

Fooey. Time to hit the ol' back issue bins, then... And I was really looking forward to having them all in one convenient book, too. I already have the other minis and one shot, and this would have been the icing on the cake.

Or, I can just wait for the Showcase, I guess...

DC Message Boards in the Archives section. And I'm assuming they got it from a Amazon listing cause nothing's usually reported until one's found there or in Chapters.
