We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Alternate Title:||Megaton Comics or Megaton Explosion.|
|Collecting 10 Issues:|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
Megaton was an anthology by Erik Larsen, Gary Carlson and others. Personally, I'd like to see this TPB, just because it has earlier versions of current characters like Savage Dragon, Vanguard, Berzerker, Ethrian, Ultragirl, and more. I've sought these issues pretty much since Image's Savage Dragon started, and have only been able to find half of them. The TPB would be a fun read.
The cover on this one is a tough call. Any of the first four issues of Megaton are good candidates, and Megaton Comics: Explosion #1 shows more of the characters involved in the anthology. Megaton #3 or Megaton Holiday Special #1 might bring more reader recognition, with Savage Dragon and Vanguard on the former, and Vanguard with Megaton on the other. However, an update of the Megaton #3 cover was used on a Wizard Ace Edition cover. I'd be really tempted to go with that cover anyway, and that might be the cover it winds up with (or it's updated version), since Erik Larsen would likely be the one to reprint it, if this TPB ever saw the light of day. Aside from that, Megaton #1 is a solid image, and going with the first issue cover is always a no nonsense way to go. Megaton #4 gives more of an idea of what the story of Megaton is, but for my personal taste, I'd go with the cover of Megaton #2.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
