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.
