    I know it's 9 issues slimmer, but Namor seems to be handily beating She-Hulk on gutter loss at the middle based on Namor's handsew of the based on how much margin the handsew takes up. As you can see from the top view above, the handsewn book is more tightly bound - but I don't know that it's a good thing.




    (Spoilered out information from my original post that was incorrect.)

    We were just mentioning this in another thread here. I need to get my first 7-8 issues of Byrne's Alpha Flight done, and the rest of AF vol 1 done.
    I am going to read through this thread because I have no clue how to go about it.

    It took me an agonizing two years to finally feel like I was organized enough to pull the trigger, and while I haven't actually learned all that much so far I'm happy to provide any advice I can . I'll be sending out my second batch next weekend after the holiday rush at the post office has ended.

    It is 1000% more satisfying to page through the issues of a series in a handy, light-weight bound format than pull them out of bags and boards one at a time - and, I have to say, the old, faded, non-glossy pages don't even bother me too much. For a treasured run I'd probably want the upgrade to a collected edition, but I think for something more ancillary I'd be just as happy to bind it myself to get it in the order I want to read it in.

    Thank you, Krisis!
    I just have to look and get an idea for what I want, and learn what the different things are.

    I really love that Sub-Mariner binding you had done.

    This is fantastic idea! I'm so happy I notice this thread!! I hate the clutter my beloved floppies create. Even when they're all neatly organized in a box, I feel like they're a terrible mess. If I get it done, I'll post a picture.

These were both junker runs I had for cheap but also really wanted to see collected, so they seemed like good experiments.

    Looking good!

    I'm still trying to figure out the logistics of binding in Canada. It seems like it will be a very expensive process no matter what I do.

    Good call on Suicide Squad. Did you do multiple books for that title, or did you do an early part of the run? And which issues did you put in?

    I'm planning to do a hardcover collection of the Pfeifer/Alvarez run on Catwoman. It'll be the issues/sections I like, around 23-25 issues. I might add Heart of Hush (Dini), as well as the two Catwoman-based conclusion issues in Batman & Detective Comics (which weren't included in the HoH trade, hence the reason I'll want to put this in), if I can fit 30 issues into one book.

    Question:
    I'm thinking of having my 'Wolverine Epic Collection: Madripoor Nights' bound into a HC and I was thinking of binding the missing 4 issue Wolverine special by Claremont/Miller with the Epic Collection. Does anyone know of a release of the Claremont/Miller issues that would fit with the Epic Collection size wise? I've been looking around and dimensions for both books have been the same on some sites and then just a little off on others so I was wondering if anybody had the epic collection and a collection of the 4 issue special both and could compare them?

    I think you want ISBN 978-0785137245, which should be standard TPB size to match your Epic, but I'm not 100% sure they're exact.

    FYI to everyone: Herring and Robinson and Houchen Bindery have both increased their prices. Also, H&R is no longer producing custom die stamps.

    The trade will be the same size. There may be a minor difference due to trimming at the printer but the bindery will trim the book flush anyway and those issues have more than enough margin to cover it.

    What are the price increases? I went on the Houchen website and I don't know if the prices listed have changed, but the site still states the prices as being, "effective July 1, 2012."
