    I thought it was an interesting concept. Wasn't clear on everything, but I was happy with the price I paid

    I like how Dystopian Futures always reflect on current society someway, the way people chatter, the fact web series becomes the number 1 hot shot in the world and whatnot we're very interesting and clever.

    Nope, 52 happens literally the day after(maybe even 12 hours or less) IC finished. And it's good :)

    The fist 24/5/6 issues that Loeb wrote were fun, wacky, crazy, but just that, fun. The Supergirl arc with Mike Turner on art was the highlight of the series, and returned Kara Zor-el to the DCU. After Loeb left, it was a series of one off story arcs by a rotating team of writers and artists

    I'd consider getting it in omnibus, because a lot of those one offs were pretty great. The loeb issues don't warrant an absolute imo.

    It really is an odd choice. Loeb isn't exactly at the height of his career at the moment, and McGuinness doesn't have any popular demand, and since Turner passed away, there hasn't been a spike in his demand as far as I know.

    Oh well, at least we're getting some great books coming up :)

    I don't have any scans and I don't think you'll see a big difference if any of us was to put them up here. I think you can only really see the difference if you compare the deluxe and the tpb in a comic shop. If you have the tpb already there's no need really to upgrade, since the art looks a little blown up/scanned in, in the deluxe when compared to the tpb. Matte paper finish looks and feels a lot nicer for this book. However if you don't have anything to compare you might as well get the deluxe, since it's OHC :)

    Me too. Will definitely get that book.

    Hmmm you make it sound as if DC has been ripping us for a long time, which I don't think is true. They're giving us excellent value for money imo.

    Is one of my favourite stories this year. It really benefits from multiple readings though, so pick it up soon again. Also read the Spaceman thread in the Vertigo forum. Especially towards the end some peeps are discussing what went on in the book, or at least how they perceived it. Some happenings in the book could have multiple interpretations, especially the ending.

    Certainly not me. Any slight interest I might've had in this book is now gone.

    Yep Infinite Crisis leads straight into 52. The Infinite Crisis Omnibus would fill the gap and it's a great great book!!

    After yesterday's announcement I think I'll go with the following books:

    • Fables Deluxe vol. 7
    • Animal Man Omnibus
    • Before Watchmen Deluxe 1-4
    • Absolute Blackest Night
    • Solo Deluxe
    • Stormwatch vol. 2
    • Batman Noir (if it's in b&w AND colour)
    • NTT 3 Omnibus
    • The Authority vol. 1


    And I might get the GA Superman Omnibus, though I'm not sure if I like 'the old stuff'. Will probably check a few issues on comixology or get the first Superman Chronicles tpb to help me decide.

    Perhaps also a few New 52 hardcovers if my budget allows when I've filled my spreadsheet with Image, Dark Horse, European stuff and other publishers' releases.

    Yeah, Archonia has finally had some interesting deals this year. There's also Image, IDW, Dark Horse and Marvel books in their sales, although I didn't find anything interesting and the deals are all in all not that great (at least compared to CC).

    True for the Dutch, Germs and Belgians, but CC deals for other europeans aren't that great when you have to factor in the postage costs. Not sure how that works with archonia though.

    For other publishers I saw Invincible vol. 4 HC and Rust vol. 1 as highlights (didn't check Marvel though).

    I keep checking amazon.co.uk hoping they have listed the Animal Man Omnibus, I want to see if their recent trend of pricing things really low continues.
