    Default I need a tip for a gift please, something really good

    Hi, I'm looking for a comics book or books, which were published as a compendium or deluxe edition, omnibus...something like that, if the smaller publishers does it. Its a gift for me I like fantasy, horror, I fairly enjoy superheroes and aswell like noir stuff. Ill be very happy if You could help me out guys, for example Red Sonja doesnt look bad, but I havent found any book which would cover more issues. I want to thank You all for help in advance

    Definitely Sunstone. It came out in two deluxe hardcovers. I own the five softcovers, but I've seen the first hardcover in person, and it's pretty nice. The last two softcovers put together pretty much equal the first three books in size, so the series is essentially split in half with the two hardcovers. Great art, great storyline, great everything.

    The Goon. "fantasy, horror, [sort-of] superheroes and noir--" that pretty much sums up The Goon, by Eric Powell, except to say it's extremely well-written and beautiful to look at. And please look into any of those listed in my signature, as well-- these are my Always Recommended titles!

    Fell by Warren Ellis and Ben Templesmith. It's a mix of horror and noir that's about a homicide detective transferred to a seriously f'd up town called Snowtown where all sorts of weird stuff is happening.

    Please let me add another vote for Fell! Gordonm was modest in his summation, did not mention how great and and wonderful this title is.
    I will follow his example, and ask you please to let me simply add another vote for Fell, a dark police procedural of great human warmth and compassion.

    I am committed to the idea that any work of art should be judged on its own merit, not on the behavior or beliefs of its author.

    Wow, QBall--
    lending my support, as well, to Green Valley, Locke & Key (though the last comic is an expensive hard-cover). and Stumptown: felt like no one else was aware of Stumptown!
    good choices, each.

    You don't mention age but if the giftee likes spy thrillers, consider the Velvet Deluxe Edition by Brubaker. If adventure, consider Wild Blue Yonder by Raicht. For Sci-Fi, consider Echo, The Complete Edition by Terry Moore. Mystery, consider Red-Handed by Kindt. Mythology, consider Ichiro by Inzana

    Locke & Key is awesome but not a single collection.
