    Interesting. Wonder what else they will publish in this format. Perhaps some Conan? Big John Buscema is overdue for an AE (although he really shone with certain inkers). I also wonder if DH now regret that the Hellboy AE will be by IDW.

    Not gonna get this one though, because I already have the Simonson Alien pseudo-AE and yesterday I ordered the Thor on for £40 from BD (yes, I was gonna post that deal here but it seems to have been the only copy they had left).

    From the DH solicits I'm actually much more excited about Pictures that Tick. Dunno of y'all recognized the gravity of this release: it'll be 272 pages of new work by Dave McKean!!!

    McKean uses mixed media to take readers on a journey unlike any other: "The Coast Road" follows a desperate wife trying to find her missing husband, whose ghostly image appears in unexpected ways. "Black Holes," written by an anonymous journalist, concerns the politically sensitive true story of Chinese villagers induced by the government to sell their blood, only to be infected with AIDS through poor medical practice. A myriad of personal tales fill the pages of McKean's latest achievement.

    I don't think they sold all the Hellboy rights of the AE-s to IDW. But they could come out with a Hellboy AE from Fegredo (which I would kill for) and it could contain freakin speech bubbles too, not like the Hellboy in hell AE. (okay, I get it, it's about the art, but I would like to read it too. But maybe it's just me).

    Nope. Not just you. I like to mainly look at the art, but I also want to read the stories.

    Hmm, I ordered that a while ago but it was cancelled. Definitely going to try to preorder it again.

    OK these are relevant news for collectors who work with Ikea Expedit shelves. Ikea is discontinuing the Expedit line and the new line will be called Kallax. It's slightly off-topic but not so much as I understand many of you own these Expedits and were recommending these to shelve OHC.

    Yeah I was thinking about getting this cuz god knows how long it'll take for them to release another library edition since they're all caught up. sucks there's no wording, but I'm not mad about it since these are basically just art books, not really for reading. I still might get it, but damn these things are expensive, and no where offers any kind of discount on them.

    What is that book in the top left corner? Looks interesting.

    Looking forward to your review of Milan, btw.

    Last week's purchases:



    Quai d'Orsay is hilarious. It won "Best Album" at Angouleme last year and will be published by SelfMadeHero in April as "Weapons of Mass Diplomacy" (I'll review it a bit closer to publication).

    I'm particularly happy about the Andreas book. I still can't believe that even though he's German, this is the only one of his works that is available here in Germany. I really, really hope this sells well so that we'll see more of his books published here. And while we're at it: they need to be translated into English as well. Asap.

    Half Past Danger is some mindless but great pulpy fun. Few minor issues about the art, but when you get guns, girls, dinosaurs, Nazis and ninjas in one book, can you really complain?

    Isn't there more Andreas available in German? I have two of his books in German ("Azteken" and "Das Rote Dreieck") that I got from amazon.de for next to nothing. Cromwell Stone is amazing, the first part was available in English from Dark Horse in the 90's (as was Coutoo and a few books of Rork) but the other two books were never translated. It's probably my favourite of his works.

    Nope. Cromwell has just been published, but that's really it. The other ones that are available (usually used) are all at least 20-year-old softcovers that have not been reprinted since. And some of his work (afaik more than half of Rork for example) has never been published here at all. I'd love to have a German version of the two Rork Integral books that have been published in France and NL.

    "Das rote Dreieck" and "Azteken" are both hardcovers (and 20 years old ). Dreieck was published by Arboris (999 copies) and Azteken by Carlsen.
    Those two Rork intergral books are definitely things of beauty. Hopefully the Cromwell is a succes so those will come to Germany as well (plus volumes of "ARQ" and "Capricornus")
