    Interesting, why is All Star included? Isn't that Miller.

    No, All Star Batman (vol 2) #1-14 is Scott Snyder's Rebirth Batman series with various artists (no Capullo). Ended around the time Metal began.

    Ah I see sorry, I thought it was a New 52 or earlier bind, I wasn't even considering Rebirth. I was really hoping for All Star Deluxe editions. I guess that's not happening.

    It's ok. Yea, like I said, as you can see, I personally take a bit of an expansive idea when it coming collecting Scott Snyder on Batman comics. I want to capture more than just his Capullo-drawn #1-51 run. But I've see so many that just want to focus on Snyder/Capullo and that's fine too...it's about personal preference.

    There was never any doubt about that...Tim was great at what he did, but he didn't run the bindery or own it, etc...they have Tom in place and I believe he's actually been there even longer than Tim was there. Tom has been super communicative as I've got a batch of books up there now and am working on covers for someone as well.

    There's a guy named Tom that works there who will take the Tim role, it appears...

    Do you know if it's worth doing a traditional back with text, if you are printing it on the cover and not a dust jacket? I figure the hc would muddy the text a bit.

    I also got the front cover's finished with your advice and added Black Mirror to Vol. 1 after JBatmanFan05 mentioned it.

    My personal preference is that I do a synopsis on back covers if I'm doing art on cover.

    Just shipped off a project which will be dust jacket...no text on cover but I put everything on the jacket instead (with text on the front and back flaps). I did do art on the actual cover...but just art.

    I don't mean to ask too many questions, but do you think this cover is too boring?
    I seem to lean toward simple designs, but I might regret it when I actually get it back.

    Bob, you seem very good at these. Do you work on graphic design or is it a hobby?

    And Gordon, if that was directed at my question, it puts me more at ease. I'm sending all 3 volumes in to be done next week, haven't custom bound something before.
