    Honestly - it's a disappointment for me because of size. It is not even oversized! It's an art book and it have a standard size. It's weird.

    There is a thread for collection pics, most of the links in this thread are for individual books on release like the post above yours.

    I was pleasantly surprised by it. Loved Criminal, but didn't care for Incognito, but thought Fatale was excellent. It took a couple chapters to get into, but once I did I couldn't put it down. The Deluxe itself is a pretty nice book; sewn binding and nice paper, wrapped in a nice printed cover.

    Yeah that's strange. Art books should be oversized.

    Speaking of OHC, I got this today and was surprised at the quality for being a Kickstarter. OHC, with nice paper and binding.

    I have 29 of them. Pretty good list, some puzzling additions and omissions but you get that with any list.

    recommended:
    Incal: Moebius, nuff said
    Black Hole: Excellent body horror/coming of age tale with beautiful art by Burns
    Epileptic: Harrowing story about growing up with your disabled brother. David B.'s art is not for everyone, but I think it's amazing.
    Cowboy Wally Show: Kyle baker at his best ("Why I hate Saturn" is great as well), why this book is currently oop is a mystery to me

    not on the list but recommended:
    "Like a velvet glove cast in iron" by Daniel Clowes. Best movie David Lynch never made, an absolute fever dream of a comic

    You can order it off their site: badkarmacreative.com for US residents. Or email them at badkarmacreative @ gmail for international orders. Warning: shipping is pretty expensive for non US residents.

    I've got eighteen, but has there actually been a "Puma Blues" collection? I have most of the original issues, and I agree they're fantastic, but if there's a collection, I've got to get that right away.

    It's hard to include some of those long-running series in with single-volume stories. I mean, if they're really recommending the first Cerebus book, that's not where I'd suggest anyone start with.

    Anyways, top three: The Cowboy Wally Show (my hands-down favorite comic ever), Pyongyang (any of the Guy DeLisle books are great), and I guess Maus, because everyone should read Maus.

    Is incognito worth a buy? Most people don't enjoy it as
    Much as the other books they have done... (Sleeper, criminal etc..)

    I find this to be an interesting list for a few reasons. For one, the inclusion of things like Sex Criminals and Saga seems a bit off base, an not because they're not fantastic books, they are for sure, but Sex Criminals barely has 6 issues out and Saga is also relatively new. To put BKV's Saga in over Y:tlm or Ex Machina(technically superheroes, I guess) is weird. The other glaring omission is Sandman, of course, but I think it's kind of refreshing to not see it:
