    Thanks to both of you! Looking forward to picking these up!

    Argh, sucks living in Canada when it comes to this stuff, all the best deals come out of these American stores and with shipping I dont really save anything buying from CGN even with the great discount :(.

    Any particular reason why the IC omnibus and Watchmen Absolute aren't 50% off on CGN?

    New Frontier was literally one of the first DC books I read (if not the first). I got a bit confused a bit with some of the more obscure teams that show up towards the end of the book, but it was extremely minute detail. So I can attest, it's perfectly readable for a newcomer. It's also one of the cheapest absolutes yet has one of the highest page counts.

    JLA #1,000,000 is pretty much DC One Million #2.5. It doesn't read well without the accompanying four-issue mini, so they might as well skip it.

    Issues #18-21 and #27 are actually great fill-in stories by Waid and Millar. They just weren't included in the HC because they weren't written by Morrison, which was a huge mistake in my opinion, but I think the biggest mistake was not including DC One Million #1-4 in volume 3, even though Morrison wrote it and the JLA figures heavily in it.

    I'm not a newcomer But thanks for the reply. Do you, by chance, know what teams that did show up? Or is that a spoiler? If not, I'll read up on them if I don't already know about them.

    Gotcha. So hopefully they just do the fill in issues.

    It's not a spoiler.

    Pretty much every Silver Age character & team shows up in NF.

    I think the confusion is only a problem if you make it one. The issue with any story based in a world with existing stories it that you could always know more about the characters, but when you actually look at what you're presented with there's absolutely no need.
    All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

    Yeah, I'm getting it! I can't wait. It shouldn't be a problem then, about the confusion. Just curious, does CGN tax? Stupid question, but I loaded it up and went to the check out screen and there is nothing about tax.

    Yeah the book is great!! Finished a few weeks ago for the first time. I really want to read it again now that I went through some Crisis books and know more characters. See what I missed the first time I read it. So many other books I need to read first...

    If any western europeans collect archive editions then a lot of them are only 15.00 at cheap-comics.com, like Batman, Dark Knight, Wonder Woman, Justice League etc., just check out http://www.cheap-comics.com/advanced...ves+hc&x=0&y=0
