We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||Jemm, Son of Saturn.|
|TPB Cover:||J:SoS #3.|
|Collecting 12 Issues:||Jemm, Son of Saturn #1-12.|
Covers (click to enlarge):
A few cool mini-series came out in 1980's, including Spanner's Galaxy, Conqueror of the Barren Earth, and this...ah...gem...Jemm, Son of Saturn. I liked Jemm because it had twelve issues and it introduced us to a new character. I was sure he'd be a major new hero...until they sort of ripped off the Elliot/ E.T. relationship for Luther and Jemm. Still, overall, this was a decent story, and Jemm has appeared a handful of times since then, including several issues of the 1998 Martian Manhunter series. This would be pure nostalgia for me, but I would love to see this maxi-series (there's a term that never quite made it) reprinted..
For the cover, it's kind of a tough call. There's always the possibility of simply going with the first issue cover, and that wouldn't be bad - it's a good shot of Jemm in action. Issue #4 is great, with Jemm battling Superman, but it's not a true representation of the story inside, because Superman only appears in that one issue (maybe at the end of the previous issue as well). Issue #12 is a nice, centered image of Jemm and Luther, which is what the story's about, but would anyone buy the TPB based on that image? Issue #3 is a little more ambiguous of an image, but it's one of the best shots of Jemm - I think I'd go with this one as the cover.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
