Eaglemoss Launches DC Comics Graphic Novels Partworks Collection in Germany [Update]

Following the success of Hatchett’s Marvel Ultimate Graphics Novel Collection and Marvel’s Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, Eaglemoss has followed suit with a DC Comics version.


Currently on a trial basis in Germany each issue of DC Comics Graphic Novel Collection is presented in a hardcover format, which will combine to form a single image spread across the various book spines. The series is set to be 60-issues long, which rivals the initial Marvel Ultimate Graphic Novels release. The completed spine reveals the series may be extended at a later date.

From Google Translate:

Each story is presented in a Hardcover band, a brief introduction explains the background. Newly launched stories of the most creative minds of the comic world, including such famous artists like Jim Lee, George Perez and John Byrne or the star authors Geoff Johns, Grant Morrison and Denny O’Neil.

In addition, each volume includes a reprint of the defining moments from 75 years of DC history, such as the debuts of many characters of Superman up to the Joker.


The first five issues consist of:

  • Batman: Hush volumes 1 and 2
  • Superman: Last Son of Krypton
  • Justice League: Tower of Babel
  • Superman / Batman: Public Enemies

Here’s hoping the series is a success and we see it in South Africa soon.

I’ve just received word back from local Eaglemoss distributor, Jacklin Enterprises:

Please note that we have not received any indication from Eaglemoss if this collection will be launched in South Africa. If the publishers do decide to launch this collection in South Africa, it will be advertised in the relevant media sources.

Then again, they said something similar when asked about Marvel’s Mightiest Heroes series. Time will tell, and we hope it’s kind to us.


Eaglemoss has now implemented a Premium subscription for the series. For an additional € 1.50 per issues, you’ll receive three additional Green Lantern graphic novels, each over 400 pages in length.


From Google Translate:

The complete Blackest Night saga in 3 exclusive premium volumes!

Each luxurious books is over 400 pages long and has a protective cover in the matching to your collection optics.

    This is great news! I was actually wondering when DC was going to jump on this bandwagon. I am thoroughly enjoying Hachett’s Marvel collection and really hope this DC set gets to SA soon.

  2. Graham van der Made

    Nothing yet. Eaglemoss has been very quiet on an English release. I see they’ve updated the collection with a “premium subscription” that includes 3 additional Green Lantern graphic novels.

    I got that same problem in Poland (east side of Germany). We have our version of Hatchett’s Marvel Ultimate Graphics Novel Collection, and now she will have 120 issues. But DC title is cost 50% more. So i wait for our version of Eaglemoss Collection too.

  4. Graham van der Made

    @Basilisk – it’s pretty crazy if you’d like to collect all of the sets. For example:
    – Marvel’s Mightiest Heroes Graphic Novel Collection – 60 books
    – Marvel’s The Ultimate Graphic Novels Collection – 120 books
    – DC Graphic Novel Collection – 60 books (add an addition 3 for the Premium Green Lantern ones)

    This comes to 243 books in total. Crazy, but I think it’s worthwhile.

  5. Basilisk

    Off course it’s worthwhile. That’s obwious. But now in Poland we dont have Marvel’s Mightiest Heroes Graphic Novel Collection. Only Marvel Ultimate Collection. However in Germany, issues from Heroes Collection is published in Ultimate collection.

    Real problem is, that one publisher (Egmont) dominate DC titles. And he wonts nearly 20 $ for one hardcover album (about 170-200 pages).
    That too expensive for me. So i want polish edition Eaglemoss DC Collections with about 13 $ for peace.

    – some of those Marvel titles are international exclusives, and not available in English (in this series). For example: Marvel Knights.
