    Default Latest orders!

    Don't know if there's already a thread for this, but I'm curious to read what you guys ordered/purchased. Anything from singles to absolutes!

    I'll kick off, I just ordered:

    Batman: Hush (tp)
    Batman: Dark Victory (new edition, tp)
    Showcase: JLA vol 1
    Batman & Robin: Batman Must Die vol. 3 (deluxe hc) (for some reason B&R deluxe was cheaper than the tp lol)
    Batman: Eternal #16 & #17 (currently in the midst of collecting the back issues, am almost up to date)

    Really curious about the showcase, I've never actually read one before. Will see if I can handle 500 pages of old stories in black and white.

    My only problem with the one showcase I have is that I felt as if it wanted to disintegrate in my hands. The quality of the book is subpar compared to other similar products (Essentails, Savage swod of Conan, Dredd Complete case files).

    I ordered Mike Grell's Green Arrow vol. 2 and John Ostrander's Spectre vol. 2. It's great that these are finally being collected, and I've especially been enjoying the Spectre series.

    In the last few weeks I got the trades of Deadly Class, Velvet, The Fuse, Zero, Ellis' Secret Avengers and Criminal: The Sinners. I also got the first Brubaker Cap Ultimate Collection, Incognito Classified Edition and the Sleeper Omnibus (my new favourite series).

    Waiting on Zero volume 2 and Criminal: Lawless. I borrowed all of Criminal from a friend and Tracy Lawless stood out for me and it seems hard to find the first Criminal HC in England now so I'm going to stick with the two tpb's until they re-release it all in hardcover again, if and when they do of course.

    The deluxe edition? The 2nd one is cheaper bug you can get the 1st from amazon around 28 pounds.

    Thanks. My orders have to be big otherwise the shipping costs would nullify the savings I make over just a few books.

    It's 40 (too much for me) on the marketplace and when it says "usually dispatched in 11 to 13 days" through Amazon it means they haven't got it, doesn't it? If it doesn't I'd probably go for it for 28.

    Hmm, yeah, I overlooked the despatch time. Well, 2 weeks is not that much, I think you should go for it and cancel in 2 weeks, no harm trying. Or there is a "very good" copy for 24+2,8 shipping. Aslo there is a new copy on alibris UK marketplace for 33 incl. shipping (according to this search: http://www.isbns.tk/isbn/9780785142294)

    You could try Cheap-comics in the Netherlands, they still have it in stock. Shipping to the UK shouldn't be too expensive (I hope...) and their packaging is excellent.

    My firsst order from Cheap-comics.com contains:

    JOURNEY INTO MYSTERY BY GILLEN TP VOL 01 COMPLETE COLL
    GOTG BY ABNETT AND LANNING COMPLETE COLL TP VOL 01
    INVINCIBLE HC VOL 09 ULTIMATE COLL
    FANTASTIC FOUR EPIC COLL WORLDS GREATEST COMIC MAG TP
    UNCANNY X-FORCE BY REMENDER COMP COLL TP VOL 01
    X-FORCE BY KYLE AND YOST COMPLETE COLLECTION TP VOL 01

    Then they have this thing where you get something for free, so I selected SPIDEY ELECTION HC

    So 5 books with vol. 1 on them. Lots of new stuff to read :-)
