Really should read what I buy.IIRC, that art is from Dd # 32. Just curious, how does one do a signature line? I noticed some time ago that your listed "Collected Editions to read" was something like 380, but it looks like you've made good progress!

The inking for #44 is credited to Colletta, but looking at the art it's obvious he didn't ink it. Examining it stylistically it looks to me that it was actually inked by Dan Adkins.
Marvelmania #2 revealed that Dan Adkins was the true inker for #44, and Colletta's credit was a printing error.

I would like to list all trades that are still in print and leave out most out-of-print trades. I would still include out-of-print trades that are still the most cost-efficient means of getting the material reprinted, whether in general or excluding Essentials, at the prices offered by places like Amazon, and any out-of-print trades I do list would be set apart in some way to indicate their out-of-print status. I'm not quite sure how to handle Masterworks, though, as it's very rare that the hardcovers are going to be the most cost-effective means of picking up the material even compared to floppies even at the base price; I'd like to apply criteria to them that would justify including them at their list price but that wouldn't justify including them even if they go for $1000 and the same material is all available in in-print collections of every other type. It doesn't help that I'm not really much of a collector myself, so: if there's anyone who would always pick up a Masterworks if they're in print, no matter what other collections of the same material are available and when they came out, but is willing to pick up one of those other collections if the Masterworks are out of print, where is the dividing line? Do Masterworks instantly lose as soon as you have to pay prices inflated by even a dollar, or is it fuzzier than that?

You'd think they might correct these sorts of errors for these reprints...

Thanks! I was really starting to question my memory of that. I flipped through volume 1 was thinking "How come they didn't credit Walt?!" and flipping more "Where's the Simonson art?!?". Didn't remember him coming onto the book so much later.
