New Comics Collected Edition: Black Panther! Dave Gibbons!

Our picks this week. Click the links to order from Amazon and help support PCS!

For the first time ever, the complete classic adventures of the Black Panther are collected in this, the first a line of Omnibus editions! In the 1960s, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created one of the most iconic super heroes ever conceived, the regal king of Wakanda—the Black Panther. Roy Thomas, joined by top artists including John Buscema, brought the Panther into the ranks of the Avengers and delved into his origins and backstory. Then, Don McGregor launched T’Challa’s first solo series. His “Panther’s Rage” was an adventure so huge it ranged across the savannah, into the deepest jungles and over snow-topped mountains. Complete with original letters pages and an extensive trove of bonus material, this Omnibus is a must for every Marvel fan.
    COLLECTING: Fantastic Four (1961) 52-53, 56, 119; Captain America (1968) 100; Avengers (1963) 52, 62, 73-74, 77-79, 87, 112, 126; Daredevil (1964) 52, 69; Daredevil Annual (1967) 4; Marvel Team-Up (1972) 20; Jungle Action (1972) 6-24; material from Fantastic Four (1961) 54; Tales of Suspense (1959) 97-99, Astonishing Tales (1970) 6-7

Presented alphabetically, with informally written anecdotes that can be read from cover-to-cover or simply dipped into, Gibbons reveals unseen comics’ pitches, life as the first Comics Laureate, and going from being a fanzine artist to infiltrating DC Comics in the 1970s. The book covers everything from working on Doctor Who and meeting Tom Baker to being inducted into the Eisner Hall of Fame. Gibbons also discusses, for the first time anywhere, the reasons why he and fellow Watchmen co-creator Alan Moore no longer speak. Packed with over 300 iconic, rarely seen, and unpublished art pieces and photographs, Confabulation: An Anecdotal Autobiography not only entertains, but peels back the layers of a fascinating career in comics.
