Wanted TPB: Amazing World of DC Comics


Writer: Various    
Artist: Various  
Publisher: DC Comics  (1974 -1978)
Includes: Amazing World of DC Comics #1-17 and Amazing World of DC Comics Special #1
Clipped from Metropolis Plus: Published in the mid 1970’s, the Amazing World of DC Comics (AWODCC) was a fan magazine published directly by National Periodical Publications – or DC Comics, as they could later come to be known. This magazine is the most important piece of Bronze Age history regarding DC Comics in existence. The magazine was printed on heavy stock paper and the covers were a heavy construction paper/ cardboard-ish-type textured paper. The logo itself (the Amazing World of…) was taken from an earlier publication: The Amazing World of Superman, Metropolis Edition 1973. 
Dork Note: Someone (like Twomorrow Publishing) needs to put this out as an oversized hardcover book.

Good call! I'd love to read these. The few I've been able to read/afford have been great!

(thanks for your blog, by the way - another good read!)

Your pal in Milwaukee,

Wanted, indeed! In thirty odd years of comic bookery, I have never actually seen one of these to pick up and read. They're all cool covers and imagination.
