I love, love, LOVE that the Triangle Era of Superman has been added to the Storylines section.
However, there are a few bugaboos:
- Under “Superman: The Triangle Era volume 1” are listed Superman (2011-2016) Annual #2 and Action Comics (2011-2016) Annual #3. Both of these are New 52 issues, and as such they have nothing to do with the Triangle Era.
Action Comics (1938-2011) Annual #3 was released in 1991, so it falls within the overall time period of the Triangle Era, but it is not yet available in digital form, so its listing should be removed until that issue does see the digital light of day.
Regarding Superman (1986-2006) Annual #2, that is currently under the Triangle Era volume 3 collection, which is incorrect. It isn’t a Triangle Era release (it debuted in 1988), so it would be best to remove this Annual from Triangle Era collections altogether.
The Triangle Era volume 3 collection is missing several books. The following (all of which are currently in our library) still need to be added to properly finish up the Triangle Era as far as currently available digital single issues are concerned:
-Action Comics (1938-2011) #'s 763-785
-The Adventures of Superman (1986-2006) #'s 576-579, and 582-598
-Superman (1986-2006) #'s 155, 156 and 158-176
-Superman: The Man of Steel (1991-2003) #'s 98-120
This next item isn’t a mistake to be corrected, rather a suggestion:
The description of Superman: The Triangle Era volume 3 currently reads as:
“Superman’s Triangle Era concludes, as Lex Luthor becomes President of the United States!”
The Triangle Era continued for another year and change after Lex’s win. In the interest of accuracy, I suggest the following description for volume 3 (after the remaining books noted above have been added to the collection):
“Superman’s Triangle Era concludes, as The Man of Steel debuts a new look with new powers, Y2K remakes Metropolis, Lex Luthor wins the White House, Earth goes to war against Imperiex and Bizarro returns!”
Once more, my thanks go to the folks responsible for organizing these Triangle Era collections, so thank you very much.
With some more work on volume 3 (and the removals of Superman Annual #2 and Action Comics Annual #3 as well), these collections will be perfect!
Thank you, and have a pleasant tomorrow.
