    That's a great collection!

    I want your Swamp Things.

    Yes, that is the one, but I don't recall paying that much for it!
    I need to go back and read it more because when I got that, I was not a fan of Stan Lee's writing, and I got awfully bored with it, and I didn't make it far at all into the book. But now I am a fan of Stan Lee's writing (still not sure if I'm exactly a fan of FF, though). It collects their first appearances (which was with the FF).
    It, of course, has fabulous Kirby art. And I appreciate Kirby's women because he didn't draw them to be all perfectly framed. At least not in that book.
    Medusa is awesome.

    Thank you! It was a pain to find Vol. 4 for a good price.

    I already bought it on Amazon. I paid about 13 for it which isn't bad considering the RRP is 30.

    I'm trying to get into the Inhumans so this is perfect, means I don't have to collect FF stuff (which I don't really care for). Now I'm just waiting for them to reprint Vol 2 in August and god knows if they'll ever reprint vol 1. There are some hardback masterworks of Inhumans on eBay atm so I might buy those instead.

    The Inhumans are great and have great potential. It's up to Marvel to do something (new) with them.
    Did you JUST order the book, or have you had it for a while?

    That is "Saga", right?

    Yeah, I cannot find ANY of those in HC. Not for a price I'm willing to pay for it.

    Yeah I just ordered it, well yesterday.

    I didn't know about it before seeing it on your shelves so I placed the order it after getting the title

    You may like it if you don't mind Stan Lee's earlier (not SUPER early, but early) stuff.
    How long does stuff from Amazon usually take to get to you? Or did you order it from somewhere else?

    ETA:
    And, yeah! that is a really good price you paid!

    I got it from a amazon third party seller in the US, so super cheap prices but 10+ day delivery times to the UK.

    But I can wait, I've got enough stuff to read until then.

    It is Saga of the Swamp Thing. I wanted to get the singles but I quickly abandoned that when I was hardly making any progress. I did manage to find a #37 which is the 1st appearance of John Constantine. You should check around on the subreddit comicswap. I found the first two hardcovers on there.

    I might settle for the TPBs if I cannot find HCs decently priced.

    It's alright. At least you can read the story for now.

    Yeah, that's the main thing.

    I have most of the original issues anyway, but I prefer having my comics in book form these days.
