    The doom that came to Gotham and The shadow/Batman .
    The first was just okay but nothing amazing the second was just plain stupid and a bit insulting for shadow fans.

    I agree. I think he is a very good writer but after Slott's quirky, witty run his just felt like an average, run of the mill superhero series. I've lost interest after like 3 issues.

    Yes, Incorruptible. They have a crossover, IIRC it's two issues, but they recap the gist of Incorruptible, so you don't have to read it to understand Irredeemable.

    I really really liked Irredeemable. Re read it this year after like 5 or 6 years and it still held up.

    I've read the first Varsity edition. It was fairly cheap for a deluxe but it feels a bit cheap too, especially the paper but I've seen worse.

    I'v sold the set as well, the story just didn't grab me at all and I've also realized while reading it that all of a sudden I can't stand Moore's art (used to really like his stuff).

    I actually didn't but I have a PS4. I've looked it up once and apparently you can change the region code 3 or 4 times and then that's it, but not region free just from B to A.

    I usually love the original, muted colours of older series but in this case I definitely agree.

    I've found half the run for dirt cheap in a shop recently. I wasn't planning to upgrade but when I've flipped through these trades it really hit me how much the colours add to it.

    didn't Marvel just release some horror omnibus? I think it's some pre F4 stuff but I might be wrong.
