    Good job getting this back up NZ_InFerno, the question is where do we go from here? The archived version of Thread 2 is going to disappear in 2 weeks apparantly so do we make a concerted effort to repost all those pictures here in the new thread, or just wait for someone to ask for a particular book and post in reponse?

    So I'm going to go ahead and recreate the reviews/pics in posts over the next couple of days then link back to the OP, rather than clog up the first post

    Still in the process of recreating the OP, Nova did a heck of a lot of formatting in this thing haha

    From myself:

    Just received my 100 bullets Deluxe v4, here's some pics for those interested. Cost me 12 quid from BD, so about half what I paid for the previous volumes. Sealed which seemed to protect the DJ from getting damaged in the envelope, but didn't stop the jacket being put on a bit wonky.

    You or anyone else is welcome to repost them. I'll do as many as I have time for tonight then get back to it tomorrow. I can just link to the new posts in the OP.


    The old thread is here, when you open an old post link from the list of pics/vids just replace the "community" at the front of the link with "oldforums" and it will show up

    Well, no idea if this would help, but I was literally done filming this when I read your post:




    And here are some random photos I took when I got it, but never found a use to them until now (Sorry about the quality on these ones, my phone wasn't the best at the time):






    The paper itself feels kind of grainy, while the art is... Well, I found it to be just fine. It's by no means HD quality, but it's not ugly to look at, specially at that size. I like the overall format of this particular Absolute edition, so I might be a little biased. Maybe earlier prints where worse, but I really like this one. It is a short comic book, though, but the bunch of extras make it worth it anyway.
