Otherwise, on the topic of this thread, i.e., these new affordable paperback Masterworks, has any kind of schedule been released? I'm asking because I'm not so much interested in the classic material from the 1960s nor the major series/characters like Spidey, FF, Avengers, etc. (which I mostly have in other formats), but rather some of the OOP books like, say, the second Inhumans volume.
All of the initial releases have been form the core Marvel characters form the 1960s output. I don't know what else is on the docket, but I think the focus is going ot be on the early Silver Age stuff at first, at least that's all that's been released and/or solicited at this point.

Here is something I did. The top is the double splash from Captain America #110 as it was originally printed. The middle is the garishly colored reprint. With a few photoshop tweaks (maybe 15 minutes) I modified the colors to look truer to the original. I don't think there is a question of which looks batter.
That middle reprint coloring looks familiar, and if memory serves, it might remind me of the coloring in the Captain America - Collector's Edition hardback (1981), featuring the Steranko run. I've always believed the original coloring was the best--not so "in your face" with the far too vibrant reprint colors.
