    it's issues 0-50 of the kurt busiek and cary nord run and a bunch of extras. it's one of my favorite stories in comics, i originally had it in trades and when i saw the size of it, i had to have it. if you have any interest in conan, it's worth it.

    Thanks, James. I've read the Busiek issues in trade and thought they were great.

    Also, HB and BPRD are awesome, but I'm not sure the BPRD hardcovers are omnibuses, I've never seen them called that by the publisher. Nevertheless, great stuff.
    I've seen them mentioned as Omnibus' while doing research so it just stuck in my head :3. I might pick up the 1st Fear Agent LE to get me started, but it's definitely on my short term buy list.

    @James: That's a beautiful collection. Thanks for posting it.

Cheapgraphicnovels looks really good as well except for the lack of a free shipping option, but as of now they have Powers Definitive 1 and BPRD Omnibus 2 in stock while IST doesn't so they're a good second option.
    I just got Fear agent LE 1 and it's awesome! My second best Indie collection, after The Sixth gun Deluxe (also recommended)

    Well, for me both treatments have their advantages. My first exposure to the EC stuff was through a childhood friend of mine back in the early 80s who was a huge fan. He had some of the originals and a bunch of reprints. I fell in love with the garish coloring and I feel that's ultimately the way the artwork was intended to be presented. Otoh, I think it mostly looks pretty great in B&W too and I also like the background/historical write-ups in the fantagraphic books. In the EC Archives you get the full issues of the comics...the story quality is up and down but you get the letter pages and adverts and so forth and that's always entertaining to me (oh, not to mention you get the covers in the archives as well of course).

    Judging by another picture that was posted earlier it looks the exact same height as the Library Editions. So I'm guessing this new line of Stuff from Dark Horse must be their super oversized Omnibus editions. Right? It collects as many issues as an Oversized Omnibus, but it's as tall as a Library Edition. First Colossal Conan, now Big Damn Sin City is coming out and it's got even MORE pages then the Conan book!! Wonder what else Dark Horse is going to release.

    It has some fantastic stuff but I ended up selling mine. I didn't read it very often because I never wanted to get the ropes and pulley out so it mostly sat on the shelf. For me, some books are just too big.

    If I remember correctly it's even bigger than the library editions.

    Warren Ellis tweeted earlier that Vertigo informed him that Transmetrolpolitan would be released in 5 hardcovers in the "near future". That's all the info he had. Im assuming these will be in the deluxe format Vertigo has been using lately. Can't wait.
