    Thanks! Four books in all then. (At this point - not including the unannounced Abe book). That's great news.

    Well, a little more. The Hell on Earth hardcovers will probably come out to be like 4 or 5 total. There are about 80 issues or so I think?

    I've decided to break my omnibus virginity! Where is the "go to" place for affordable omnis in the UK?
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    forbidden planet for good packaging but if you are willing to risk a few dings for a bigger discount then speedyhen or wordery (often speedyhen is cheaper on their ebay store than on the website).
    Or cheap-comics.com, they have great packaging but only have good discounts on sale items.

    It has arrived! I've been waiting to read this book for so long. And will get it signed in two weeks.

    Looks great with W&D. Image delivers, as always.

    Man, I guess I'm going to have to get some glue and start getting good at binding repair. It's frustrating these books sometimes...I just got my copy of USS Stevens and unboxed it and was really pleased. Thick paper, great looking book with a nice sewn binding...lovely. Opened it up and flipped thru the pages a bit and was pleased. Then I take a look at the bottom of the book and the ribbon/paper has completely separated from the page block. Happened while I was looking through the book because I had looked at it right off the bat and it was still glued in place. It's way too common with these big books - they don't use enough quantity or quality of glue in there. The sewn bindings are just too fragile. I mean I have several books where the paper has completely come off the page block and the books are still holding together, but it sure doesn't feel very solid at all.

    Sorry to hear that. I'm halfway through mine but there haven't been any binding problems whatsoever. Sure, it's a bit tight, but that's it.

    do you flex the binding before opening the book?

    yep...that's actually what I was doing before I noticed the issue. The book itself looks great though. Love the artwork. I'm real gentle with these books too. I never flex them fully open.

    Not that the strip of paper shouldn't stay on, but the good news, I think anyway, is that it's purely put on there for aesthetic purposes only to cover the woven ribbon the pages are actually bound to. You could completely remove that paper strip that separates from the ribbon and it won't actually effect the binding at all. I think anyway.

    hmmm, not sure that's correct. The woven ribbon is just a little bit at each end of the paper strip and it comes off with the paper when it separates. Basically, once that happens there's nothing holding all them purdy pages together but a thin bit of thread. It feels sketchy at best. My copy of the Stand Omnibus is terrible in that way. I'm afraid to open it...

    I read it when it came out way back when. IT was good, very dense a lot of story per issue. Well worth buying.
