Re: RARA-AVIS: Goodis...

From a purely selfish perspective, I'm glad to see reprints of the tougher Goodis titles--it makes for a cheap way to fill the holes in the old collection. Any self-respecting Avian should be able to dig up used copies of the better titles without too much effort.

However, I don't think it will hurt Goodis's reputation. When these 2nd-rate reprints don't sell, publishers are going to be reluctant to birng the good stuff back in print. Too bad.
