My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Omnibus Vol. 6

Travel to August 1961 with Marvel

In August 1961, Fantastic Four #1 hit newsstands, heralding a new take on super hero stories and the birth of the Silver Age Marvel Universe! Now, sixty years later, experience the excitement of being a comic book fan in that momentous month with the Marvel: August 1961 Omnibus, a complete hardcover collection of every issue that shared the shelves with Fantastic Four #1, many never before reprinted!

Considering leaving the comic book industry behind, Stan Lee was persuaded by his loving wife Joan to create one more book exactly the way he wanted it. And so, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created Fantastic Four #1 and changed the American pop culture landscape forever. Before the Silver Age kicked off, Marvel Comics had published western, romance, comedy, monster and science fiction titles — and in August 1961, Fantastic Four was just one of over a dozen very different Marvel books. This first-of-its-kind omnibus will include:

  • JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY (1952) #73-74
  • KATHY #13
  • LIFE WITH MILLIE #13
  • PATSY WALKER #97
  • AMAZING ADVENTURES (1961) #6
  • FANTASTIC FOUR (1961) #1
  • KID COLT, OUTLAW #101
  • LINDA CARTER, STUDENT NURSE #2
  • MILLIE THE MODEL #105
  • STRANGE TALES (1951) #90
  • TALES OF SUSPENSE (1959) #23
  • TALES TO ASTONISH (1959) #25
  • GUNSMOKE WESTERN #67
  • LOVE ROMANCES #96
  • TEEN-AGE ROMANCE #84
  • AMAZING ADULT FANTASY #7
  • PATSY AND HEDY #79
  • RAWHIDE KID (1960) #25

These works were brought to readers by some of the most influential comic book creators of all time including Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko, Don Heck, Stan Goldberg, Al Hartley, Paul Reinman, Jack Keller, Dick Ayers, Bob Forgione, Vince Colletta, and more!

Check out the all-new cover by Javier Rodriguez as well as the exclusive Direct Market variant cover by Jack Kirby and be sure to pick up this rare and unique collection when the Marvel: August 1961 Omnibus hits shops in August 2021!

Mike Grell is Kickstarting a Deluxe Omnibus of Jon Sable

Jon Sable, Freelance

After successful Kickstarter campaigns to revive Mike Grell’s Maggie the Cat and his collaboration with actor/writer Mark Ryan on The Pilgrim, Grell’s Masterstroke Studios imprint is giving one of his most popular creations a massive new release: Jon Sable, Freelance.

Jon Sable, Freelance, the story of a former African hunter in the concrete jungle, was one of the earliest successes among independent comics of the 1980s helped redefine what the medium could achieve..  A top seller, Sable often saw higher sales and critical praise than Batman, Superman, Spiderman, Avengers, and many other mainstay titles.

Grell left art duties on Jon Sable, Freelance with issue #44, but continued to write the title through issue #56 before leaving to do Green Arrow: The Longbow Hunters for DC in 1987 (the same year Sable became a short-lived TV show on ABC, co-starring newcomer Rene Russo), continuing to push the boundaries of comics within the major companies thanks to the independent comics’ influence.

It is notable that Sable has never gotten the Deluxe Hardcover Omnibus treatment it deserves. IDW released a series of trade paperbacks in the early 2000s, and Comicmix published smaller sized paperback omnibus editions in the last decade. Masterstroke is upping the game by going for over-sized editions that will be definitive versions of the legendary series.

Each of the planned five volumes will clock in at around 400 pages each. They will be larger than we’ve ever seen Sable, measuring approximately 8.5 by 12.25 inches (the same size as the DC Comics Absolute Edition releases) with glossy interior pages, rare materials (including never before seen artwork), all new covers, and dust jackets that will line up to form a complete image when placed in order on a shelf. Each volume will retail for $100.

Jon Sable, Freelance

Masterstroke will release the omnibus editions, first via Kickstarter campaigns, then through wide distribution. Kickstarter backers will get them first, and with a variety of additional perks available only through the campaigns. 

That’s just the tip of the iceberg. The companion books that will be part of the Kickstarter campaigns will include the original Freelance Writing letters columns, a guide to the characters, guns and gadgets, creator commentary and new art from Grell. More will be announced as the campaign gets underway.  

Grell fans have been clamoring for a return of Jon Sable for many years. This omnibus collection will not only immortalize the iconic run of the character, but also pave the way for new Sable stories from Grell.

Look for the Jon Sable, Freelance Volume One THREE WEEK Kickstarter to launch in time for Christmas 2020, with an early Spring 2021 release date. All five omnibuses will be released over the two years that follow, culminating in Volume Five being published to celebrate Grell’s 75th birthday in 2022.
