    Thanks, but their shipping is €15 - so I'd have to make quite a large order for that to be economically viable. And since their prices aren't the best, I usually pick Booksetc for my larger orders. :)

    Thanks but I'm based in Europe, so ordering from those sites will be very cost prohibitive for me.

    Here in Europe, it's still readily available. I think it'll be back in stock in the US soon enough, just be patience (even though I know how hard that can be for a book you really crave).

    Exactly this. They also sometimes employ the tactic of "only x copies of this book left, the next book will be more expensive and the one after that even more". They aren't all that different from...

    I'm personally torn on how to collect my favorite series.

    On one hand, I do enjoy oversized artwork, (usually) better paper quality and, above all, hardcovers.

    On the other hand, I like that...

    Hmm could be it had something to do with the value of my books, as I spent 397... but only 1 of my books ended up with shipping costs, out of 28. And that one was weird, as it was a Dawn of X book -...

    It works with other combinations of books as well - but for some books, there will be a shipping fee no matter what. A bit weird. But eh, I just got 28 books (including an omnibus) for just 0.82 in...

    I pre-ordered it a while back for ~€43 including the rather high VAT here (25%). The price would be more than twice that now - so if they cannot deliver a new copy and instead simply have me return...

    They're out of stock and I don't want to wait ages for a replacement to be sent - only to perhaps find it even more damaged.

    I got a 25 % discount, which is fine. Though I'd much rather have had...

    I love John Byrne, but that Jim Lee cover is fantastic.

    Don't care for Windsor-Smith's art.

    What exactly is so special about the MMW books compared to a regular OHC? I assume there's something about them, given their high prices... :confused:

    Yes. I'm desperately checking their site multiple times per day at the moment. I have set money aside in case they should decide to repeat the success.

    I haven't had any experience with Amazon.fr myself - but from my experience with other Amazon branches, I'd say that their crappy packaging and handling of goods is universal.
