Back Issue #61, out November 14, is planned to cover the oversized “Tabloids and Treasuries” comics of the 1970s (and the similarly-sized Alex Ross issues last decade). To suit the subject, this issue is being printed in that size, with 84 color pages for $10.95.
In addition to articles on the best-known examples of the format, such as Superman vs. the Amazing Spider-Man, they’re promising a “checklist of all the reprint treasury editions.” While my collector side bemoans the fact that I’ll have to find someplace special to store this tabloid-sized issue, my whimsical side loves suiting the format to the content. There’s a PDF preview of the issue available at the link.
