DC 'SHOWCASE PRESENTS' TRADE PAPERBACKS

The 'SHOWCASE PRESENTS' DC Trade Paperback line was a series of black and white perfect bound trade paperbacks, reprinting vintage (mostly Silver Age) books in chunks of 30-40 issues per trade paperback on coarse, matt-quality paper. Initially limited to the Silver Age era from the mid-1950's to 1975, the line was able to explore the 1975-1997 time period, which carries a different contractually obligated royalty fee structure for compensating the original creators. The royalty fee structure in this era eliminated any return to DC based on the low price point of the trade paperback line. In several cases, DC worked out a written royalty deal exception with the relevant original creators specifically for these trade paperbacks. A SHOWCASE PRESENTS SUICIDE SQUAD volume was solicited twice (once in 2007 and once in 2010), but never published. A SHOWCASE PRESENTS WHO'S WHO IN THE DC UNIVERSE was announced, but never solicited. Two volumes were recalled because of errors. SHOWCASE PRESENTS SUPERMAN FAMILY [2006-TPB] #2 was recalled because several pages from SUPERMANíS GIRL FRIEND LOIS LANE #2 were swapped. SHOWCASE PRESENTS GHOSTS [2011-TPB] #1 was recalled because it was missing page 474. DC published some Golden Age reprints in their BATMAN CHRONICLES and SUPERMAN CHRONICLES trade paperbacks which have similar production qualities but were not part of the SHOWCASE PRESENTS line. Marvel's equivalent line to DC's SHOWCASE PRESENTS series is their 'ESSENTIAL' series.
