Yep! But to be fair, they also rocked ten years ago, when Marvel called them Essentials.
Indeed. But Essentials has fallen off the deck lately, haven't they? They've put out a few good volumes in FF, Defenders, Captain America and so on. But why are they doing stuff like Marvel Saga? And why not first put out great stuff like Sub-Mariner and Nick Fury? I see they finally have a Captain Marvel Essential coming out, but they need to get on the stick. There's still so much great 60's and 70's stuff they could do and is just ignored.
Of course, there's some that Marvel cannot do. I don't think we'll ever see a Master of Kung Fu Essential. Sax Rohmer's estate probably wouldn't allow it. A shame, because I would truly love to see Mike Zeck's early stuff in that book.
And GCom tells me Iron Fist is out of print. What's up with that? I looked all over Pittsburgh Comicon for a copy of that and came up bupkiss.
