    Default The DC & Vertigo Hardcover Thread (Absolutes, Omnibuses, Deluxes & more). PART 2

    Welcome to the second Hardcover Discussion thread for DC and Vertigo! Find the first thread here.

    Feel free to post here with any questions or comments about DC's, Vertigo's, or Wildstorm's range of hardcovers, in all their myriad formats. And we want to see pics of your collection too.

    Here is what DC & Vertigo has scheduled for release, as per the official solicits. I'll regularly update this to remove old releases and add in new solicits, and include anything I forgot. Books marked with an asterisk (*) are regular sized. (W) denotes the writer(s), and (A) denotes the penciller(s)/artist(s). All prices are cover prices.

    FORMAT SIZES (approx)
    Regular sized hardcovers are 26.5cm x 17.5cm.
    Deluxes and Omnibuses are 28.2cm x 19cm.
    Absolutes are 31.5cm x 21cm, and the slip cases are 32.5cm x 21.5cm.

    The original TPB for TDKR had that cover. I have a copy from way way way back. It's been read to death and is pretty beat up. I thought I had lost that copy at one point so bought another with this cover:



    Then I found my original and started lending the other out to people. Both have been well loved and even though I have the Absolute I often throw the tpb in a bag to read on the go or on trips.

    Not a fan at all of the tpb current cover.

    This new hardcover features an acetate dust jacket showcasing the face of The Joker as it appeared on the die-cut covers of the “Death of the Family” comics — and under that dust jacket lies the horror that is The Joker’s skinless skull!
    RETAILERS, PLEASE NOTE: This acetate cover will be available only on the first printing of this title.

    Must make sure to get that Batman one, I can foresee it going for silly amounts on eBay.

    I don't know if this is the right place to ask this but do any of you know if Fear Agent Library edition vol.2 ends the fear agent series or are there more books after that one? :)

    That's the one I have, bought it in about 2004. The spine is very slightly warped from the way I used to improperly store things, and a tiny bit of the card of the cover seems to have been scratched out of it. Both very minor, but enough to annoy me a little bit.

    I didn't realise this cover was OOP, or that people were unhappy with the new one.

    Oh and please DC... Release it in deluxe, along with All-Star Superman... And maybe Kingdom Come.

    Thanks for the new thread Nova, good work as always. And a poll, we're getting all high-tech up in here! Be interesting to see what people favour.

    It's not really the right place no, as it's published by Dark Horse but these discussions get very off topic so I don't think it matters. I like that it's off topic on the first page of the new thread though! The second library edition will finish off the Fear Agent story, collecting issues 17-32 I believe.
    All opinions are not equal. Some are a very great deal more robust, sophisticated and well supported in logic and argument than others.

    Finally a v2, only had 3 marvel threads in the same timeframe. Awesome format as always nova.


    Got my notice from BD about 100 Bullets Deluxe v4 shipping, pretty happy about that seeing it was for something like 12 quid in a price error. Now for v5 to get mispriced too :D

    This new hardcover features an acetate dust jacket showcasing the face of The Joker as it appeared on the die-cut covers of the “Death of the Family” comics — and under that dust jacket lies the horror that is The Joker’s skinless skull!
    RETAILERS, PLEASE NOTE: This acetate cover will be available only on the first printing of this title.

    Must make sure to get that Batman one, I can foresee it going for silly amounts on eBay.
    Yes solicits were disappointing, nothing oversized.

    Yes it finishes the series.

    When I set up the thread this morning, it was an even split between Deluxes and Omnibuses. As of now, Absolutes are storming ahead. Standard sized books are still getting no love. Apparently size really does matter

    Take out the posts about the lack of a Volume 2 for Uncanny X-Men or Byrne's Fantastic Four and we beat them hands down

    ADVENTURES OF SUPERMAN: JOSE LUIS GARCIA-LOPEZ*: Collecting tales illustrated by master comics artist Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez from SUPERMAN #294, 301, 302, 307-309 & 347, DC COMICS PRESENTS #1-4 & 17, & ALL-NEW COLLECTOR’S EDITION C-54.
    Ordered this yesterday... Disappointed to know it's standard trim, I thought for sure it would be deluxe.

    Still great, though.

    I'm happy DC is keeping it low with the OHCs because Marvel is killing my financial plans (esp. with these insta-OOP books). And DC does a good job of keeping stuff in print too. So planning on getting sleeper,animal man, one million and planetary sometime next year. How's House of Secrets?

    Im confused about these paperbacks though. Grell's arrow, Dark Knight over Metropolis, Deadpool mini, Joker mini, Lucifer and Brubaker Catwoman. Don't want to buy these and find out they'll end up in some oversized format later.

    Speaking of keeping things in print, it seems the LXG omni is OOS almost everywhere. If anyone finds it available, could you please let me know. I need that series.

    Does anyone know if the stories included are good or just kinda so-so? I'm interested in picking up some Superman stuff, but not sure if this is a good place to start.
