    Absolute Court of Owls, didn’t think much of it, plus I’m guessing the story continues at a latter date, if so, shouldn’t have been an sbdolute

    City of owls came after which I think was just the next volume so it wasnt too much later. Not sure if that is in the Absolute.

    A Snyder omni would of be the way to go with this rather than an absolute I’m guessing

    Breaking the Marvel habit was the hardest / easiest one for me. I used to buy almost all the Omnibus editions they released as well as most of the OHCs. So many that I have dozens that I haven't even opened. But then with the increase in price, weakening of the £ vs the $and the poop paper quality it made the decision to drop the outliers easier and then that made dropping the main books I enjoyed easier too. Coupled with the great books from Image, Dark Horse et al my buying habits have changed so much over the last 5 years or so.

    I'm much the same. I love beautiful looking books and collecting them and find it very hard to get "rid" of any even if I don't have much time for them. I also dislike selling books and most of what is involved with it although I've managed to have friendly chats with the buyers. In addition, I spend a considerable time packing the book(s) as I wish to make sure the buyer gets the book in perfect nick.

    I think any collection is going to have favorites and than a bunch of items you wished would be better, but have
    no interest in selling or purging from the collection.
    I just want to buy books and read them and build a small personal library.
    I probably will die with hundreds of books not finished and many holes in
    each run, but that is how I want it (not the dying part .

    I would love that. Or even a run of sensibly priced Absolute editions.

    The Absolute is Court+City in one edition, the complete story.

    I'm trying to get rid of my 100 Bullets Deluxe Edition Vol.2 - I found this one with a really REALLY cheap price (something like 9 dollars), but the other ones are just too expensive and nearly impossible to find here in my country.
    Uzumaki is another case of book I want to trade or sell - I bought the amazing edition from Viz Media, but don't think I will never reread that nightmare.

    Looking for excuses to get rid of stuff now, Absolute All Star Batman and Robin, while interesting in its own way it’s not going to get opened again, and now for the worst reason to get rid of a book, Absolute justice league worlds greatest super heroes, haven’t even unsealed it but it’s not the same size as the other absolutes and sticks out like a sore thumb, plus I don’t like Alex Ross’s art, it’s not suited to comics in my opinion (bought it as I was on a mission to have every absolute)

    I don't have a absolute in my collection.
    Most available I have no wish for and the few
    I rather have in Omnibus like Azzarello Wonder Woman and Snyder Batman.
    I do really want the Alan Moore Swamp Thing Absolute volume #1 (Which hopefully gets an official solicitation later this month)

    Absolute swamp thing is a definite purchase for me, I hope it’s not Hellblazer all over again (I loved HB when it came out, recently reread it, found it very poor)

    For me, the really expensive OOP stuff like Inferno or Colossal Conan, or wherever else (I honestly don't know too well the value of the stuff I bought years ago - just haven't kept up on it).
    I mean, if I wouldn't buy something for $400, why aren't I selling it for $400?

    Really? What are they adding to it?
    Just as long as it's not more issues of Power Pack...

    Power Pack was a childhood favorite of mine so I'd have no problem with that, but the new edition adds the following issues:

    Uncanny X-Men 215-219 (previously orphaned/uncollected)
    X-Men Annual 11
    X-Factor 12-17
    X-Factor Annual 2
    Fantastic Four vs X-Men 1-4
    X-Men vs Avengers 1-4
