Literally years in the making, clicking the image above will take you to a site designed to be your one-stop resource for information on all the various collected editions produced by DC Comics that span the decades from the Golden Age to The New 52 Era: Archives, Absolute Editions, Classics Library, Omnibus, Showcase Presents and more!
The first development phase, completed September 22, 2012, focused on cataloguing the full DC Archives library, detailing the 161 DC Universe volumes released to that point. The current phase concentrates on cataloguing DC hardcovers containing pre-Crisis material (circa pre-1986) and mapping the content of highly anticipated future DC Archive volumes.
Future phases to be completed in the months to come will add post-Crisis DC hardcover releases, trade paperbacks editions, non-DC Universe Archive lines (such as THUNDER Agents and The Spirit), and ultimately releases from other DC imprints such as Vertigo.

Quick Overview of Matthew McCallum Online
Improvements include HTML-based want and trade lists, blog-style collection updates and more content
The hockey card related pages are now divided into four key sections:
Cardboard Ice celebrates my hockey card collection that stretches back into the early 1970s through the most current releases. This sub-site showcases gems from my collection and talks about the hobby in general.
Signatures In Ice features my certified autograph hockey card collection of nearly 2,000 different players and almost 5,000 unique certified autograph cards. This sub-site shares great cards, memorable box breaks and good stories.
Shredded Sweaters is dedicated to my collection of hockey memorabilia cards. I must admit I am much less enthused about chopped up hockey jerseys than I am about certified autographs, but this sub-site gives those ripped-up rags their due.
Trade and Want Lists is Hockey Card Trade Central, containing a comprehensive listing of both my collection needs and all my prime trade bait which includes 100's of certified autographs, 1,000's of insert cards and nearly 500,000 base set cards. A work in progress, this section will ultimately expand to include easy navigation to all those base set cards that I've got available.
The Oilumni site will finally be enhanced with all the research that I've been engaged in the last few months. In addition to updating the players statistics and player register, two special features have been added: The Order of Outstanding Oilers and a Comprehensive Entry Draft Analysis Comparison. The Order of Outstanding Oilers (or O-Three) ranks the top Oilers through a meticulous rating system. Only the top 10 percent of all Oilers can qualify for the O-Three, and the 5-tier ranking system provides a best-within-the-best rating. The Comprehensive Draft Analysis rates the Oilers draft performance against other teams in the league both in NHL man-games produced and points generated. Head-to-head comparisons against Calgary and Los Angeles have been researched, with other teams to be added in the coming months.
New features to Matthew McCallum Online include a link to my FoxSports Blog entitled "Hockey Hall of Fame Hot Stove". Forthcoming items include new sub-site called Hockey Hall of Fame Hot Focus where I'll examine issues related to the HHOF in greater detail with charts and analysis, and a sub-site showcasing my Oilers Game-Worn Sweater Collection.
So, welcome, glad to have you here, and I hope you enjoy the site!
