    Oh I would too.

    I actually saw on ebay the other day, en error copy sold for about 30 bucks, with the index page cut out!

    Same here. Bookdep gave me a full refund when I mentioned the pages were out of order, no questions asked

    And the beauty is, as long as you know the pages that are out of order (or have read it before) it doesn't really matter. Plus if it does bother you, you can just wait for a nice cheap copy to show up. That's what I'll probably do, depending on what's on my pull list at that time.

    So no surprises in the February '13 solicitations. All titles were announced before, like:
    • Marshal Law Deluxe Edition;
    • New Teen Titans Omnibus vol. 3 (with the 'missing' #38 issue); and
    • 100 Bullets Book 4.

    Will probably get all of them, but not sure yet about that Marshal Law book. Why should I get that? Can anyone sell it to me?

    Not a hardcover but also good to see Gotham by Gaslight getting a new reprint. It was on my wish list...

    I randomly picked up Gotham by Gaslight for 2 at a comic convention in London earlier this year. Still not read it yet, only recently on this forum have I heard people mention it. Might have to dig it out.

    Bought it when it originally came out, but didn't really enjoy it. While the art is great, I generally do not like stories whose premise is "Look, there was a [insert name of superhero] already way back in [insert year]." It always feels kind of forced to me. (I have a similar problem with Return of Bruce Wayne.)

    What, with the Jonah Hex part? Or the fact that Bruce was a hero throughout multiple millenniums?
    And for the record, I enjoyed it. It's the weakest part of his run, but that's like saying that one particular slice of a chocolate cake is the worst

    It was Mignola which made me pick it up, so for 2 I'm happy having it for the art. Storywise, I'll have to let you know what I think. I don't mind the premise too much, but it didn't strike me as a must read. More one of those quirky books I often pick up, forget about and come back to a year or two later. There's plenty of those knocking around. I think I picked up a Green Lantern take on Aladdin at the same time.

    Read most of it in floppies back when it came out and wasn't impressed. The whole "Batman-was-here" malarkey was too much over the top for my taste. Plus the fact that he kept meeting his own ancestors all the time. Seriously? What a coincidence!

    I thought it was supposed to be like that. I dunno.

    Wasn't 52 omnibus supposed to come out this Wednesday? Looks like it is coming out next week now. I very well could have been wrong to begin with...

    I keep reading things periodically about Absolute Kingdom Come not being that great. Specifically the art looks grainy and sort of washed out. That would be a shame, since it's one of the best stories. Those that have it, are you guys satisfied with it? Is it actually that noticeable?

    Just got my absolute kingdom come from book depository. Ah what a beauty. Not sure where to put the 4d glasses though, wish it came in a pouch like absolute promethea.
