    Isn't Ms. Tree Mysteries reprints headed to IDW for the 80's Retro tpb collections? Correct me if I'm wrong.

    • Mike Gold says:

      i heard that some time ago. I'll check.

      • Mike Gold says:

        I checked with Mr. Collins, and he could not confirm any IDW deal. However, he did say that there was a deal pending to reprint the Ms. Tree Quarterly stories (that, ahem, I edited) in trade paperback. Nothing signed yet.

          Is there anything that YOU haven't edited?

            The part of his article that has "boos" instead of "books"?(I'm not volunteering. I have enough things to do.)

          • Mike Gold says:

            People can't edit their own stuff. That's why we've got Rick Marshall. Sadly, Rick's in Albany today (nope, I didn't say which Albany) and we're all on our own.

            Hmmmm… You mean, anything worth reading?Yep. Lots and lots of stuff. Let's start with The Spirit. And Blazing Combat. And the entire EC line. Carl Barks. Rudolph Dirks. Winsor McCay. There's some cave paintings…

    I read and was absolutely blown away by "Dearly Beloved." I stumbled across it by accident at a bookstore and my eyes went huge when I saw it was a new Ms. Tree story by Max, having been a fan of the comic and Max's for years.I'm really happy for Max and Terry's success and am hoping the TV movie/series works out. I'm also hoping it helps spur a publisher into reprinting the series from its beginnings in the old Eclipse magazine. Though just hearing that the Quarterly stories are getting a reprint is good too (and congrats to you too on that one, Mike!)

    I forgot all about Ms.Tree! I have to go back and find some now. All I remember from the comics was I had an issue in 3D!

    Ahhh Ms. Tree Quarterly — I fondly remember them from the back issue bins.I cannot recall how I became interested in Max-Allan Collins, but there is nothing like being able to buy a pile of good comic books, lock yourself away in a room, and just read.And the Ms. Tree Quarterly fit my Halloween comic rule – most of them had a story that could be followed from beginning to end, and giving them out to Trick – or – treaters would not frustrate the kids. And it fit the category of Girl comics.
