A Great Site That I Had No Idea Existed

Most people who know me know that I am a sucker for oversized comic books. Not stuff like Absolutes because those just seem like books that happen to have comic book drawings in them. I’m talking about the big oversized Treasury books like the Legion of Super-Heroes book that featured the Wedding of Saturn Girl and Lightning Lad, or the Howard The Duck book that featured Howard and the Defenders taking on Black Hole, Tillie The Hun and those other guys or those books that reprinted classic comics like All Star Comics #3 and Whiz Comics #2.

All good stuff that brings back a lot of memories from my childhood. I remember seeing the ads for these things in DC and Marvel books from the 70s and wanting every last one of them. Unfortunately as I grew older, getting them just never became a priority.

There is apparently a site that revolves around these books and it is called TreasuryComics.com. I have already spent a lot of time today just clicking through and reading the reviews of a bunch of books that I wish I had.

I like the fact that they have also mentioned the ones that DC did in the late 90s and early 00s. I had no idea that I was missing one of the Dini/Ross books until I checked this site out. This is a great reference site with lots of pretty pictures.

Check it out if you get a chance.

Flattr this!
