Comic-book store owner couldn’t believe his ears when a customer asked to reserve a copy of an upcoming comics collection. The owner reflects the excitement felt by fans when two major comic-book companies announced a project that republishes long out-of-print crossover comics. From 1976 to 2003, crossovers between the two universes were regular features as the companies sought to expand their markets. In an industry now defined by Hollywood, the news of a re-release of these comics sent waves of curiosity and nostalgia throughout the industry. The upcoming collection includes exclusively reprinted material. No new comics are being created. Pre-sale prices on Amazon are $131.50.
