    If y’all were to choose one event book from the big 2 that released within within the last decade, what would it be?

    Without too much thought, Infinity by Hickman comes to mind. Despite the flimsy...

    I'm currently reading through the Bendis Daredevil Omnibus and it's my first time reading this story in nearly a decade.

    It absolutely floored me back in 2012, but I've found it a bit of a slog to...

    Question for myself and anyone like me:

    Why haven't we bought The Killing Joke Absolute Edition? It's an absolute steal at its current price. Shelf space? Love of expensive dining? I can't say.

    The more time that goes by, the more I appreciate Absolute: Batman Incorporated. It's one of my favorite books.
    Burnham's art, the colors, more blisteringly cool Morrison concepts and dialogue.

    Todd McFarlane still has some of the very best Marvel covers under his belt, IMO. To the point, I bet even the collected department is aware of demand.

    Yep! Can't believe it's been almost a decade since I first read it. It was one of my favorite runs back then, but it has been so long since I've ready it, due to the slow-burn style of storytelling...

    What do y'all think of Absolute V for Vendetta?

    I love the story, but would you say the art benefits from being enlarged or is deluxe hardcover just a good an option?

    They've gotten unbearably slow. Takes me over two weeks to get my books now.

    May go back to Cheapgraphicnovels. Although their customer service is bad, shipping is faster.

    Mine is definitely Swamp Thing, both for the story and the production values.

    Do you guys and girls order pretty much anything you can afford that slightly appeals to you or do you curate your collection?

    I'd say I curate heavily, and perhaps to a fault. I get rid of books...

    Do a YouTube search and you’ll see recent reviews discussing the issue. Many copies appear to be fine, but apparently there are some binding issues out there.

    Absolute Swamp Thing is easily the best book I’ve ever owned.

    Not saying it’s my favorite comic series, though it’s up there, but the book itself is just gorgeous. The book has to be held and seen...

    Can anyone convince me that the "Batman & Robin" Patrick Gleason omnibus isn't too big?

    Not likely, because I just sold off my beloved New X-Men, due to size, and it's even smaller :( But damn do...

    It's hard for me to rank the 60's among the others. It deserves the #1 spot, of course. Everything else is just striving to live up to it's legacy. That said, it's probably the last one I'd pick up...

    That makes the most sense to me. I suppose it's too much to hope that word on the binding made a dent in the sales.

    I agree. As a buyer, I just can't do these lumbering books anymore. I love Absolute Editions and Omnibi(?) that don't exceed 500-600 pages, but beyond that, I'm out. It killed me, but I sold off my...

    I don't want to be the prophet of doom, but am I the only one concerned about the page count? Isn't The Invisibles under 1300 pages? At over 1500 pages this thing will be humongous.

    A 1500 page DC omnibus? You’ve got to be joking. Thing will be unreadable. Must be a mistake.

    I’m mixed on them.

    I think they provide a greater sense of atmosphere, but there seems to be a loss in texture, unless that’s just an illusion to my eyes.

    This is what I was worried about. The Invisibles omnibus was way too big and the page count doesn’t seem all that far off on this one.

    I’m really hoping they’ll collect a few more arcs of their...

    Been asking this since they were announced to no avail. Even asked Tom King when he posted about it on IG, but got no response.
