Well, the original hardcover edition of superman: for all seasons had a really cool acetate DJ. Of course there's little point in buying it now that the Deluxe edition is out.
Most people here love dark horse. They make better OHCs than the big two, and for half the price. What DH books of yours do you consider poorly bound?
I was going to pre-order from Amazon but...
I don't know if James Robinson's Starman can be called underrated, it had a very strong fan following and was critically acclaimed, but DC certainly doesn't show the series the attention it deserves,...
I would certainly pay more for a signed hardcover of a work I really liked, especially if it is the first hardcover edition, or the highest quality release available (ie, an absolute edition). If the...
Probably, yeah. Those Proto-omniboo came out before a DC knew how to construct a good book, so you can expect newsprint, glued binding, and standard page size. I could be wrong though.
Darn. I was hoping it would at least be the paper they use in the new Lucifer trades.
You don't have to rub it in my face that I'm not rich enough to afford a real fork. These pictures were taken with the only tool I could afford: a simple Ipad 2.
I found these at my local second-hand thrift shop. They are all like new.
Sorry for the crappy photo. They are:
Batman/daredevil: King of New York
Birds of Pray vol 6: the battle...
Why in the world would they change the colour of the invincible spine after 8 volumes!
Anyway, great choice of books.
It seems like a lot of absolutes have been going OOP lately: new frontier, batman and robin, final crisis (?), and now hush.
I'm on volume 2 right now. It's so good! It feels like a Vertigo title due to its mature tone and sophistication, but it's still very much a superhero comic.
It shouldn't be too hard to find a...
Oh god no. Year 100 is one of the worst batman stories ever.
Just give me an absolute year one with a companion volume like COIE or JLA/Avengers. The companion volume would include the complete...
Early printings of batwoman volume 1&2 have the solid line DC logo, while later printings have the same logo as all the other new 52 hardcovers.
Whatever happened to the man of tomorrow is included in "the dc universe by Alan Moore". I would buy that instead.
That doesn't look so bad.
It has signatures, I think that means it's sewn. A first for dc deluxes.
I recently ordered the slipcased hardcover edition of world's greatest super-heroes from an ebay seller. Here's how it arrived:
The seller explained that this damage was...
Oh great, another $100 book with ads in the back...
John, that seller sounds lick a real jerk. I'm glad you could get a refund.
Is anyone backing Ben Templesmith's "Dagon" on Kckstarter? It's an adaptation of an early story by H.P. Lovecraft.
No I can't. I spend too much money on hardcovers to be able to afford a halfway decent camera...
I probably should have posted about it while the KS was still active. Oh well.
Who else helped fund it? I'm in for $222.
Yeah, it's sewn. Virtually all sewn bindings use glue for added support, and to attach the cloth lining. The presence of glue doesn't necesarily indicate glued binding.
Sewn bindings have...
Maybe future volumes in Valiant's omnibus line will have oversized art, and they wanted to have the whole line be one uniform trim size rather than have one book be smaller than all the rest.
