    Default Preacher HC edition question...

    Hi everyone!

    I just order the first book of the hardcover edition of Preacher.
    Searching for the other ones I found out that there's a hardbook edition only with the covers!

    So I'm asuming that the Hardcover Books (I believe there are 6 books in total) do not come with the covers?

    Please someone who knows clarify this for me. :)

    The hardcovers include covers.

    The cover book predates the hardcover editions, and also includes notes by Ennis and Fabry.

    'Mm,' she agreed. 'He's a little bit dodgy in the same way that rats are a little bit covered in fur."

    Should've wait June for softcover version. Hardcovers are terribly done and really overpriced.

    It's not out yet and won't be for months. We're not psychic. Ask again in June.

    Number of pages for TP and HC version of book 1 are the same. So obviously, TP has the same features as HC.
    Difference is that TP comes in half price of HC and of course, it has soft covers.

    Interesting.. I have seen multiple people complain about the paper quality of the hardcover editions, so I will be curious when this releases.

    Absolutely nothing. It's regular paper (and not that glossy crap either). I guess some people were expecting the ultra-thick Absolute books paper stock.
