I'm looking to collect some Zatanna books, so some Recommendation on key books or cool covers would be great!

The 2010 Zatana series has a run of Adam Hughes and Brian Bolland covers that are pretty cool

Zatanna Seven Soldiers??

It all starts with hawkman 4...Her second appearance is not Atom 19 which is touted by most as being so.
You will want Detective comics 336, which has a witch that was apparently Zatanna in the story although she is never called by name
Atom 19....Justice league of America 51, Green Lantern 42, Flash 198, 208 and 209, and Detective comics 355 round out some of her earliest appearances.

She was the backup story in the 1972 Supergirl series for the first six issues, and the final issue she appeared also reprinted her origin.
She also did a short span in Adventure comics directly towards the end of the Supergirl part of the in the low 400's if I remember right
For cool covers...Supergirl 7 is a must have....


If you like TPB, you can buy her early appearances, during her search for her father in a book titled...."Zatanna's Search"
I enjoyed the TPB "Everyday Magic" as well

She appeared in a 1987 one shot...

I also suggest the series The seven soldiers of victory with Zatanna as a good read.
Justice league of America 87, 100,101, 102, all contain her appearances within stories.
I think she becomes a regular member of the team in Justice League of America 161....Swamp thing 49, and 50 have the early formation of what would come to be known as Dark Justice, and she appears there.



She stars in a book called
Dc Superstars #11
Superstars of Magic from 1977



As mentioned above the 2010 series with Hughes covers is awesome as well but can get spendy...it is also collected in this TPB if you prefer a cheaper path...


If you exhaust those suggestiongs let me know....I can offer some more.
Happy hunting and welcome to the chase of one of the most unique and amazing characters ever offered in this format!

There's really no such thing as a bad Zatanna cover.

@Darkseid_of_town, have you received your sketch covers from redandblack studios?
Post 14 IP   flag post
Collector Darkseid_of_town private msg quote post Address this user
Ah....yes, they have come. A few weeks back I got a message from Heinz warning me about some Zatanna sketch covers on ebay...I went and had a look and managed to come away with the set....thanks Heinz




Blackandred Studios on Ebay, I bought the set he had at the time, but haven't checked him out lately

I suppose the Preliminati Sketchbook from Ryan Sook with an original Zatanna sketch counts as a Zatanna cover??

Lois Lane 132, also. First actual solo story (flash 198, you say? Flash is in the story)
Post 21 IP   flag post
Collector Darkseid_of_town private msg quote post Address this user
I guess I am.confused but noone.said.flash 198 was a solo story that I saw
Post 22 IP   flag post
Collector Darkseid_of_town private msg quote post Address this user
I am umsure what the criteria is to be considered a story also but the Lois Lane 132 Zatanna is considered a "short" if I remember correctly at something like four pages

Flash 198 is marked all over as “first zatanna solo story” But it’s not. I was just trying to stop an argument before it happened.

But i cannot find any mention of Z in Flash 208 & 209; do you know specifics about her appearance? There’re also some appearances in Detective in the 830s. Not sure how many issues but i love the cover to 833.

Volume 2, flash 2004..issues 208 and 209, rather than the silver age version...that makes it simpler to find.

Even the Dc superstars book is a reprint of the 3 part story from Adventure comics 414,415, and 416 called Zatanna the Magician
