Many of us who grew up in the pre-video era know the thrill of finally being able to create libraries of our favorite programs and films on DVD, Blu-ray, and digital files. Those rare treasures that came along every few years on TV are now cataloged and enjoyed from our own shelves. And by the great efforts of a few publishers, we are now in an era of archival re-print collections of classic comic strips. If you missed those few 1980s printings that soared in value, your time has come! On the heels of Fantagraphics' on-going mission to print the entire run of Peanuts, Prince Valiant, Krazy Kat, and Popeye, other publishers have stepped into the fold. Hermes Press is currently releasing complete runs of The Phantom (strips and comics), Buck Rogers, Brenda Starr Reporter, and comic re-prints of Dark Shadows, Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea, Land of the Giants, Time Tunnel, I Spy, and others. IDW has been printing the complete Dick Tracy, Little Orphan Annie, X 9 Secret Agent Corrigan, and Terry & the Pirates. Titan Books, celebrated among Spy Vibers for re-prints of the James Bond and Modesty Blaise comic strips, will begin to release the complete Flash Gordon by Alex Raymond in June! Don't miss these collections while they are in print.
