    Yeah, it does. I saw it today at the comic shop and it did in fact have a dust-jacket. But man, those HC's are awfully put together. It's a fucking bear trap to open. Me, honestly, I wouldn't even spend the money on those. Cause you can't even keep the book open, the binding is too tight and it's full of insane gutter-loss. What a waste of a perfectly good book.

    Yeah, that's collecting the original Marvel stuff that's been out of print for like ages in all brand new HC's. Thanks to God, that's happening. The Apes series from Marvel was incredible.

    As I recall, the first volume initially didn't have a dust jacket but when the re-released it again a few years back, the newer edition did come with one. I'm not 100 percent sure but there was a volume - either 1 or 2 - that didn't come with one when first released.

    Well, the book I held said "First Edition" and it was signed by Starkings on the shelf. However, I wouldn't buy it cause the books just not worth owning. That's an impossible hardcover. It's a million times worse than an older DC Omnibus. It's too damn small, it's half the size of a standard hardcover. Plus, it doesn't even stay open, it's literally glued shut with that glued binding mess. Now, if he printed his series on the new edition HC's like Rick Remender has or Ed Brubaker has, then it's worth owning. But even if I'm a collector and I know that's worth something. I'd literally just buy it to resale it, cause it's not worth owning. Though, I have no idea who the fuck got that book binded like that. But they did a total shit job on it. Next time I go, I'll snap a pic for you and show you so you can see. It's pretty horrendous and it'll probably make you cringe seeing that Frankenstein monster.

    This is correct. The original volume 1 and 2 did not, and had different trade dress than volumes 3 on. Volume 1 was reprinted/re-released with updated trade dress to match the other volumes, but an updated volume 2 never was. So volume 2 sticks out like a sore thumb.

    Thanks, I have first print, seems it doesn't have dj.

    @katatonia - it's true those books have terrible binding but they are not small, 'half the size of standard hardcover'. I'm not sure what you mean by saying 'it's not worth owning'. It's worth for me but people are different: I see guys here who have everything on shelf in alphabetical order, or by authors, or by publishers - most common way to organize collection - or folks who get mental when they even small scratch on books. Or even worse: some people have half of collection still in shrink wrap. Or people don't buy books, even they are one of the best comics I've read just because there is art on spine which looks bad if you don't own entire collection - wink, wink Balakin. That's just weird, man! Me, I don't care, I love my messy collection, I don't have OCD.
