Two years after its initial debut, South African comic book fans are finally getting the DC Comics Graphic Novel Collection from Eaglemoss. This bi-weekly series is distributed through Jacklin Enterprises locally.
The graphic novel collection consists of 60 hardback volumes containing ‘classic’ stories from the DC Comics universe. Some of these include The Long Halloween, Public Enemies, and A Death in the Family.
The first issue will cost R29.90 and include Batman: Hush (Part 1). The second issue will include the second part of Batman: Hush and cost R79.90. Issues three, Superman: Last Son of Krypton, and onwards will stay at the regular price of R129.90 per issue.
The DC Comics Graphic Novel Collection features 60 hardback volumes
Those who subscribe to the series directly through Jacklin Enterprises will receive various gifts spread over multiple deliveries. These consist of a “facsimile edition” of Action Comics #1 (the first appearance of Superman), a metal bookmark, two tin plate covers, and a pair of Batman and Superman bookends.
What is noticeably missing from the SA edition is the option for a premium subscription, which was originally offered to German subscribers. For an additional €1.50 per issue, customers would recent three 400-page hardbacks which chronicled the entire Green Lantern: Blackest Night storyline.
Additionally, in the UK, Eaglemoss released Crisis on Infinite Earths, Infinite Crisis, and DC Universe Legacies as special edition releases for £19.99 each.
The series should soon be available from all CNA stores in SA.
