    If decide to go absolute, Promethea would be the series to do it with.

    That said, they scare me - Tim mentions the weight of them, and I like to read comics laying on my bed... I once copped a collected 'From Hell' in the face after an elbow suddenly gave out... I don't know I could survive an Absolute edition in the face.

    Your elbow gave out reading a book? Yup, you'd better hit the free weights before picking up an Absolute edition then. Luckily, I am so manly I can read two Absolutes and an Omnibus simultaneously -- don't try it at home, kids!

    From Hell's like reading a phone book!

    And it's not a quick read!

    And Chapter Four with the magic of London made me sleepy!

    And...And... I'm a weakling....
