Whither Aquaman Archives Vol. 2?

sg
A ton of Aqua-Fans have sent in a link to this Amazon listing, that shows an Aquaman Archives Vol.2 supposedly on the schedule!

For those of who don't remember, Aquaman received a single Archive Edition hardcover book, way back in 2003:

Now, lots of things get listed on Amazon that will either never be published or are so far off in the future that it's almost meaningless (indeed, Vol. 2 is listed as being published in 2035!), but someone did bother to list the comics that will be reprinted in the book: Showcase #s 32-33, Adventure Comics #284, Detective Comics #s 293-300, World's Finest Comics #s 125-133, and Aquaman #s 1-9. So there's something more than a title to this at least.

I'm still amazed that the classic Steve Skeates/Jim Aparo run, from Aquaman #s 40-56, have never been collected anywhere. The Showcase Presents volumes stopped just before, and at this rate, this series won't get to them until around Aquaman Archives Vol.3, due in 2067.

I would really love to see an Archive edition of Golden-Age Aquaman stories!

I wonder if putting in a request to be notified gets Amazon to pressure the publisher at all?

And John, I would LOVE to see a Golden Age Archive, but I can't see DC doing it without a lot of encouragement from fans clamoring for it.

It kills me that the SAG run hasn't been collected. You'd think that they'd at least put out a digital version for Comixology or something.

I'm really annoyed! When i first saw Amazon's solicitation fort this title it was a pre-order for early 2014 suddenly it becomes a let me know when it's listed for 2035?!? C'Mon DC!!!!
