Silver Age Omnibus Vol. 2, Daring New Adventures of Supergirl Vol. 2, and more Supergirl Collections for 2017-2018

The DC Comics Fall 2017 catalog has been released on Edelweiss and once again there is a lot of great stuff for Supergirl fans, in addition to the books already announced for this summer. As always, Collected Editions has the full breakdown.


Supergirl: The Silver Age Vol. 1

Supergirl: The Silver Age Vol. 1, due out July 25, 2017 is a softcover collection of stories from Action Comics #252-284.

This paperback covers the same issues previously released in Supergirl Archives Vol. 1 and Vol. 2 (short by one issue) but at a much more affordable price.

At 384 pages, it looks like DC Comics plans to reprint the Action Comics run over 4 softcover volumes as a companion to the high end omnibus volumes.


Supergirl: The Silver Age Omnibus Vol. 2

Speaking of omnibus, we now have confirmation of Supergirl: The Silver Age Omnibus Vol. 2, scheduled for Jan 16, 2018. This 704-page tome completes Kara’s run in Action Comics. Most of this material has never been reprinted before, and none has been reprinted in color. Wow!

Collects Action Comics #308-333, #335-340, #342, #344-346, #348-350, #353-354, #356-359, #361-372 and #374-376, originally published 1964-1969 (the missing issues are all reprints).


Daring New Adventures of Supergirl Vol. 2

Daring New Adventures of Supergirl Vol. 2 is due out July 18, 2017. This completes the 1982-1984 series. Good stuff.

A while ago there was an Amazon listing for Supergirl: The Bronze Age Vol. 1 that quickly disappeared from the search that would have collected Adventure Comics #397-402 and 404-424, Supergirl #1-11 (there was no issue #11) and Superman Family #165 (you can still see the listing here). DC has really been accelerating their hardcover reprint collections lately, so I believe it’s only a matter of time before we see the release of 2 or 3 omnibuses containing Adventure Comics #381-424 (which spans the transition from Silver Age to Bronze Age), Supergirl #1-10, and the Supergirl stories from Superman Family. Scans of those issues will be available on this site until we hear something.


The collection of the 1990s Supergirl series accelerates with Book Three and Book Four scheduled for Oct 2017 and Jan 2018.


Supergirl Vol. 4
On sale Jan 30, 2018
Available for preorder at Amazon

The 2005-2011 Supergirl series continues to be reprinted in double-size volumes. This volume collects Supergirl #34-44, covering issues originally collected in Who is Superwoman? plus the previously excluded #35-36 and #44.

I look forward to a future Vol. 5 covering Friends & Fugitives and Death and the Family and a Vol. 6 reprinting Bizarrogirl and the never-reprinted issues #60-67 by James Peaty & Bernard Chang and Kelly Sue DeConnick & ChrisCross. DeConnick’s 3-issue story was a wonderful and fitting tribute to the Girl of Steel.
