I'm not sure what kind of response I'm expecting but I can't believe I'm the only one who can't afford (or perhaps more correctly, can't bring himself to spend that amount of money) Omnibuses and the like.
Maybe the only response is that I am a miser or that somehow I should gain more disposable income. I just can't justify spending so much money on a book (admittedly a BIG book)!
I'm in the UK and matters have been made so much worst by the slump of the British Pound. *sigh*
Over here we have a discount book store ("The Works") but they don't get many graphic novels and the like (perhaps that's a peculiarity of my local branch). Do you guys stateside have discount stores where you can pick up omnibuses at a reasonable price? (Even that doesn't help me due the huge shipping costs to the UK).
Also, on usability : how they heck do you read an omnibus? I like to read graphic novels lying on my back, that must be impossible with an omnibus!
I guess what we really need is for a UK publisher to reprint these books over here ... I would still imagine they'd be beyond my reach in price.
So, I'm sorry, I guess I'm just having a moan. Please don't be too harsh in your comments.
