The critically acclaimed Cobra series gets the oversized, hardcover treatment to tell the tale that changed all of G.I. JOE and Cobra forever! His name is Chuckles. He is G.I. JOE's top undercover agent, and he's just infiltrated a top secret, highly organized terrorist organization - but deep cover takes its toll!
My amazon reviews, check them out sometime!
Got my Wally Wood Artist Edition today, and all I can say is "Wow!"
That thing is humongous.
Took a few pix to show how big this book really is. For the comparison I used
- Wednesday Comics
- the David Mazzucchelli Born Again AE (standard AE size)
- and one of the rinky-dink Absolute Editions by DC
Oh, and as you can see, while the cover artwork for this second edition is the one that was announced, they got rid of the ghastly orange and used green, obviously.

Some more pictures of the interior art:
and another comparison with Absolute All-Star Supes:
Oh and ehm the million $ question..... Where the hell do you keep the book?
It is also great that, as far as I can see, none of the stories in it have been reprinted yet in one of the EC Archives - and perhaps never will, since the publisher is having problems.
The pictures I took should give you more than an idea of what reading it is like.
P.S.: If you are not sure about the Wally Wood AE, get the Mazzucchelli one. Awesome, awesome book, with one of the greatest stories in any comicbook ever. It's smaller, but worth it. (It's also 200 pages long).

The thing is that I can't really find any good deals for the Mazzuchelli book. I mean 150 euro is just a little too much for me right now. I've never read any EC, but what I like about this book is the size, the pictures that I've seen of it (love the art!!) and the fact that I think that when have it, it will feel like I own an actual piece of history. Oh and I just saw this youtube video a guy did on the book. Freaking awesome!!!
BTW How was the holiday?
