Since even obscure characters are getting them, why haven't they done Black Panther? I'd like to see the Jungle Action issues along with any eariler major appearences. Also, Ka-Zar from Astonishing Tales and then his 4 solo series. I most want Master of Kung Fu but I guess Marvel can't do it due to them no longer having the rights to the Sax Rohmer characters like Fu Manchu. Or how about the non-Shang-Chi stories from Deadly Hands of Kung Fu?

yeah bummer about the master of kung fus. but in one of my spiderman essentials they reprinted a shang chi/spidey team up that had fu manchu. so it must be ok (or maybe i just got marvel in trouble by mentioning it:-) i think they cant use fu manchu in any new stories.

with the twelve series out, id like a golden age essential.

essentials just seem more fun the more obscure they are.

I'm still waiting on Essential Sub-Mariner and Essential Nick Fury / SHIELD.

To say nothing of SGT. FURY. C'mon, Marvel, get it together.

They've just been reprinting those in color tpbs.

That's definitely conspicuous by its absence.

I'd like to see something worked out that would allow that series to be reprinted in the format. That's one of the great Essentials, if it could ever make it to print. Another great one that has the same kind of problem is Essential Rom: Spaceknight.

For my part, I'd like to see Essential Namor, an Essential Monsters run (full of the pre-Marvel monster stories), a whole slew of Essential Westerns (Marvel published a ton of them, many of them having runs that lasted decades--Essential Rawhide Kid, Two-Gun Kid, Kid Colt Outlaw, etc.), Essential Doom 2099 would make a hell of a volume, Essential Sgt. Fury is long overdue, Essential Commie-Smashers (featuring the 1950s tales of Namor, Captain America, the Human Torch, and so on), Essential Invaders would he a great collection. Things of this nature.

I really want to see the entire Nick Fury:Agent of SHIELD run put in the Essentials. From the Lee-Kirby issues to the Steranko run and after. Its been held back long enough!

I also want to see the Sub-Mariner stories from Tales To Astonish and his own series to be put in Essential format.

Anyone else want to see this?

That would fit nicely into three volumes. And the Akin and Garvey inkwork along the way would look pretty snazzy in black and white.

Yip.

> an Essential Monsters run (full of the pre-Marvel monster stories)

Hell, yeah. All that Ditko and Kirby - outta sight! Mystery and suspense material with Don Heck in his element (not superheroes) - that'd be great.

> a whole slew of Essential Westerns (Marvel published a ton of them, many of them having runs that lasted decades--Essential Rawhide Kid, Two-Gun Kid, Kid Colt Outlaw, etc.),

A fine idea.

> Essential Commie-Smashers (featuring the 1950s tales of Namor, Captain America, the Human Torch, and so on)

I'd love to read that name on an ESSENTIALS spine!

I also want (Adam) WARLOCK! All that Kane, Bob Brown and peak Starlin!

Yup!

I read HULK ESSENTIALS vol. 1 and ten page story-lengths set it apart from just about everything else. Roll on SUBMARINER/TALES TO ASTONISH reprints!

I first suggested this at various points around the internet years ago. I was heartened by the fact that Marvel did publish Masterwork and Omnibus editions of some of that material. It seems perfect for Essentialization.

The title seems obvious, but it was actually Kurt Busiek who suggested it, again years ago, after I suggested such a volume under a different title (I don't remember what mine was, but it probably sucked).

Don't worry, when Nick Fury's cameo in the Iron Man movie gets the fans juiced up, and the Nick Fury movie gets underway, Marvel will have plenty of Fury action in their archives.
Then there'll be some Essential Nick Fury: Agent Of SHIELD goodness.
Not to mention, Essential Sgt. Fury.
And I'll be there on the movie's release date, waiting for the good stuff!
Abe.

I wish someone would Essentialise the Ditko, Tom Sutton and Joe Staton material from the things-that-go-bump-in-the-night type Charlton mags. Lots of stuff there that would benefit from seeing the light of day once again - especially in the ESSENTIALS/SHOWCASE format.

Werewolf story quotes from a majestic story by writer Joe Gill (drawn by artist Pete Morisi) "Guest of Honour" in GHOST MANOR #63:

"It's odd how my dog suddenly dislikes you, Mikhail! I wonder why?"

"It is Count Igor... A fine man... Except when the full moon made him a devil!"

"It's my sad duty to tell you that Mikhail is the werewolf among us!"

(Third person) "Karl Hauss was cast aside as his dog bravely attacked the hideous monster of the night!"

Would like to see:
Power Pack
Alpha Flight
New Mutants
Solo X-Men, collecting the minis and one-shots
Solo Avengers
West Coast Avengers
Micronaughts (do Marvel own the rights to this?)
Devil Dinosaur
Jack of Hearts
Cloak and Dagger

The new Pack stories are all well and good, but a little too stuck in the formula at this point (Pack meets [other Marvel hero/heroes], makes friends, fights villain[s], The End). I'd love to have a "phonebook" of the early Weezie/Brigman stories and/or the phenomenal work Bogdanove & Barta did on Power Pack to drop in the laps of some deserving children...

...or better yet, hand them to my friends who are now parents. Back when I was a kid reading Power Pack, I didn't have the perspective to appreciate it, but re-reading the original series nowadays, I realize that Weezie and Bog wrote the most "real" children I've ever encountered in fiction. In my life now, I know a Katie--a precociously, almost frighteningly intelligent child who, at the same time, is very much a little girl. I know an Alex, a Julie, and a Jack, too. I so want to be able to share this stuff with others without dropping a wad of cash for back issues.

Totally agree. I haven't had a look at the new ones, mainly because I don't like that type of 'cartoony' artwork, but I have very good memories of the early issues. I used to read the British reprints. It was the back-up strip in the weekly Thundercats comic and I remember really enjoying it. Mind you though, I really enjoyed a lot of stuff as a kid that I've read/watched since and though was a pile of crap.
