Elaine, thanks again for your comments. I am very happy to hear that while you like a mix of new and reprint stories, that you would support a totally reprint devoted title *and* titles devoted totally to new stories.
I also agree that I want Gemstone to produce MORE! I think there are so many possibilities! Not only am I OK with more material being presented in a TPB format, but I actually would *like* more presented in such a format. I know this is just a pipe dream of mine, but imagine a monthly TPB title from Gemstone! It would have more pages than 2 prestige titles together, and yet not cost much more than 2 prestige titles.
One thing I hope to see in a TPB format are Gottfredson's Mouse stories. It is nice they are being reprinted in WDC&S stories now, but I must admit I still do not like stories being in 3 or 4 different issues. Hopefully after the Foreign Legion story and "The Gleam", Gemstone could switch Gottfredson stories to some nice TPBs. That way they could be presented all in one piece.
I just think the possibilities are almost endless for Gemstone with TPBs, archival editions, etc. Not only do I hope for Barks and Gottfredson libraries, I would love to see Rosa, Van Horn, etc. ones as well. I agree with you totally Elaine in wanting some TPBs or even hardcover "Hall of Fame" collections of Don Rosa's stories. I can't imagine these not being among the most marketable items Gemstone could produce. I also love the idea of a volume of Rosa's cover art, pin-ups, etc. I would definitely buy such a collection.
Thanks to Anthony, BJ, and others for voicing their support for a 3rd prestige title! I agree with Anthony that Donald Duck and Friends would be the wisest choice for a 3rd prestige title. Donald Duck sells better than Mickey Mouse, plus you could keep the nice long history and numbering with such a title. And of course it could have Mouse stories in it as well.
I (again) encourage anybody on the ML who would like to see a 3rd monthly prestige title to please voice your desire for it here! You don't have to write a lot or in any detail. Just a one sentence post of support for such a 3rd title would help a lot! Hopefully more and more people here on the ML expressing a desire for a third title will show Gemstone what a great idea it is!
