    Plus, my flipping days are less and less these days and as of 8/31 are now not something to prioritize for me.

    It's a slipcase hc, it was a limited edition but it's much easier to find than the Umbrella academy ones ...but it's a lesser quality story too IMHO. It's not bad but it felt very Morrison light, I was kinda disappointed and sold my copy.

    Ok, I'll pass on that one. Umbrella academy is allmost impossible to find, or not?

    I'd agree with this assessment. But I kept my copy because I enjoyed the art and the quality was solid. Looks great on the shelf.

    vol 1 of UA is impossible, vol 2 is not that much. But never give up hope, I got vol 2 for 7 (yes, SEVEN) not long ago, and got Killjoys originally for like 14. BTW if you can find Killjoys for cheap somehow it's worth a shot, as others said the art is pretty and it's a really good quality book I just don't think it's worth paying 30-40 or more.

    I can't even find it for as low as 30-40. I'm paying a lot more around here. I think you have more possibilities in the UK for finding stuff.

    yeah I think so too. Imagine being in the US. BTW I got my Killjoys from the US but that was like 2 years ago.

    I've realised that I am very happy to eat everything on toast to have more money for books. I can't tell if this is dedication to my hobby, or concerning :P

    Most of my stuff comes from the UK. It's most of the time the cheapest option. Here in the Netherlands it's only Cheap comics that's got some good deals. For the rest they charge the $ price in €, with some extra
