    Over the top sex, rape and violence all around. I enjoye the first series by Ennis, but felt it really could have stopped there. The follow on volumes were ok, but not nearly as good as the first. I stopped about vol 8 I think. I was hoping the series would end and I could put my OCD to rest knowing I had the whole series, but it didn't and I just stopped collecting it. It was a different writer for the most part I believe, and it just seemed like a struggle to add anything new to the series.

    Thanks Martin, right now I'm thinking about trading some Marvel omnis for books I REALLY want to read and have in my collection rather than just have. All those X-Men omnis and OHC's, there's only nostalgia behind having them, nothing more. I'm not saying all X-Men is bad, love Dark Phoenix Saga, but right now I enjoy books like Usagi, Echo, stuff from 2000AD, comics for adults etc. rather than another story about Wolverine getting killed and getting back to life again and again and again.

    Excellent idea to buy what you think will really enjoy, rather than buying for completist sake.

    Probably to distinguish the new edition from the misprinted edition.

    MW is a great book. I added the slipcase to my collection a few years ago and gave a friend my copy of the tpb

    good hunting for the rest! (probably. I assume they are quite oop).

    Yeah, you can say that, second one costs around a grand.

    It's on my wishlist, like 400 other books.

    well, at least Gundam is not oop yet
    A grand is not even that horrible (still a lot), some of my oop wishlist items are over 200 hundred (Umbrella academy v1, Absolute promethea v1).

    A grand as a thousand dollars. One of the most expensive books I've seen but I remember some uber limited copy of From Hell for more than that. 200 is not that bad.

    oops, my money related slang is not up to date apparently. That is a crazy amount of money.

    Damn. Black Science is so good. Only four issues in but I'm really enjoying it. The art is phenomenal in this format.

See, piece of cake But seriously though, I know what you mean, these independant publishers don't have particular siza standart for their books and sometimes this leads to some little differences. And still, Image have other books in this big format, that you might be interested in, so take a look:

    Never heard much of anything about Crawl Space...worth picking up?

    The first volume by Ennis is excellent. None of the rest live up. There are two other Ennis arcs which are solid and probably the best of the rest, then a few David Lapham arcs that are good, but the rest are pretty crap, lazy wannabe shock value, lowest common denominator with none of the subtext that makes Crossed's extreme content worthwhile.

    I've read four issues of Scalped and love it but why the hell isn't there issue numbers on the covers? Just a small number in the bottom corner so it doesn't affect the cover would be enough, don't know why they do it with some books. I like the paper too, makes a nice change from glossy and suits the art. Makes the imagery feel heavier.
