Fred Hembeck...

Has A 'Nearly Complete Essential Hembeck Archives Omnibus' Out!

Click Here to see all of our currenty listed Comics, Books, and Graphic Novels! 


I have been a fan of Fred Hembeck's work... for quite a while, and only recently started to let some of my own personal collection of his works go up for sale.

One item that I don't have is the book that was released in May 2008, by Image Publishing.  The book was released as "THE NEARLY COMPLETE ESSENTIAL HEMBECK ARCHIVES OMNIBUS".

Which would be darn near complete, because this Omnibus features 912, (yeah 912!), pages of material written and drawn by cartoonist Fred Hembeck.  Not to say how long Fred has been at this, but the features included in this Omnibus were pulled from the past three decades!

The Omnibus itself is divided into seven sections:

Section One: "Little Freddy: Growing Up In The Silver Age of Comics". The 'origin story' of Fred Hembeck in 12 pages.

Section Two:  Which would be one of my favorite sections! All seven of Fred's early eighties Fantaco books, 276 pages worth: HEMBECK: THE BEST OF DATELINE:@#$%; HEMBECK 1980; ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE BRIDE OF HEMBECK; THE HEMBECK FILES; BAH, HEMBECK; JIMMY OLSEN'S PAL, FRED HEMBECK, and DIAL H FOR HEMBECK.   These have been long out of print magazines (OOP).

Section Three: A miscellaneous section that brings together all the Dateline:@#$% strips that were not printed in the Fantaco collections, plus later ones.  Fred's work for other fanzines such as THE COMIC READER, COMICS SCENE and Fred's contributions to the once annual AMAZING HEROES SWIMSUIT SPECIAL, showing 124 pages of art!

Section Four: Contains 60 pages of material from Fred's years as a member of the comics apa, CAPA-alpha, back in the early eighties.

Section Five: Fifteen different strips are printed here, ranging from a single page all the way up to ten pages.  

Section Six: Fred's work in the mid-nineties including Dateline:@#$%! This section has 210 pages collecting ALL the strips done during that period for THE COMICS BUYERS GUIDE, COMIC BOOK ARTIST, COMIC BOOK PROFILES and more.  

Section Seven: This collection is of items Fred has drawn since the 1990's to today. Too numerous to list!

The Omnibus also has a Foreword by Stan 'The Man' Lee, plus an Introduction by Jim Salicrup, and last but not least... an Afterword by Al Gordon!

Besides the items that I am listing in our own eBay Featured Store, Fred is also currently listing, (as of this blog post publishing), several unique one-of-a-kind items from his own personal collection on eBay. Including this Omnibus with a special signature!

You can see those items being listed by Fred by clicking here!

If you have not seen Fred Hembeck's unique style of cartooning, you should check out a publication or two of his!

(Note: A complimentary copy for this mention / review was NOT provided by the author nor the publisher.)

For those of you that are new to our blog today, we also have an ongoing online 'Comic Con and Pop Culture Convention' ourselves here at "Make It So Marketing Inc.", what with our daily blog posts,  and new listings of items for sale in our online eBay Featured Store!
