Last year, we got "The Marvel Vault," a cool, book-like thing housing reproductions of all sorts of neat Marvel Comics memorabilia--fan club buttons, stationary and the like. And now it's DC Comics' turn.
Running Press is publishing The DC Vault: A Museum-in-a-Book ($49.95) in October. This chronicle of America’s oldest comic publisher contains more than 25 plastic-encased archival pieces for readers to pull out and examine. Included in the collection are exact reproductions of early sketches, covers, memos, press materials, a working model of a 1942 Junior Justice Society of America Decoder, plus original pencils and inks from Wonder Woman #63.
