Surprisingly, the accompanying paperback book all about McCay himself is just as big as the hardcover, whereas I thought it'd be much smaller in comparison, so that's great too. Will post some pictures later, maybe.
    I want to see pictures!! I got the Little Nemo: Dream Another Dream and want this to go with it.

    Personally I'd rather they not, I'm quite happy with the softcovers that I wouldn't want to double dip. Also in my case having space where to store them is an issue.

    Also haven't bought any of the G.I.Joe hardcovers IDW has been putting out because of the unnecessary inclusion of the comics that were included with the toys to fill in gaps.

    Alright, here we go. First some pictures of the case the book comes in (and you can see mine is damaged on all corners and some sides thanks to Barnes & Nobles' incredible packaging):

    Here's the box unopened, the trade paperback sitting on top of the hardcover:

    Here we have the hardcover book compared in size to my Artist Edition of Hellboy (and as you can see, the difference isn't as big as I thought at all):

    Onto the actual book itself, here's the gorgeous endpapers to start things off:

    Contents page:

    How each section of these sections of the book is then introduced:

    Here's how great the binding is for such a thick, massive book:

    IMG_0285.jpg

    Now, here's the contents page of the paperback volume which, as I mentioned before, is the same size as the hardcover:

    IMG_0287.jpg

    And finally, here's a look at the brilliant design of this companion book, presented entirely as a great big newspaper:

    IMG_0289.jpg

    It's a pretty amazing book and I'm hoping to pick up Taschen's 75 Years of Marvel sometime next year as well, which I imagine must be of similar quality. This is the first time I'm seeing Winsor McCay's work so I can't really comment on how well the artwork's been reproduced (although do note that his work can be found in even bigger editions than this - just not collected in its entirety, which is the point here), although what I will say is that I sure wish something - anything! - had been done about the lettering, which is just awful. Don't know if anything was ever done about it in other books reprinting these strips but it's the only - and very minor - complaint that I have.

    I'd just sell the softcovers, thus freeing up space.

    I had no idea they'd released those Bruce Wayne trades, going to get on them now. Great choices and I still can't get over the awesomeness of Sin City even though I see it every day

    I would love that, but by this time, I doubt it. They're putting IDW created material into HC, and keeping the old Marvel material in SC. I haven't read any of this material since I was like 12, but would love to have it in OHC.

    I'm a big fan of the G.I.JOE classic OHCs and the G.I.JOE IDW-verse OHCs as well. Great builds, and great material. The Hama stuff from way back still holds up in my opinion, vs. the cartoon which I thought was unbelievable at the time, now I watched some with my son on Netflix, and blah, it was pretty awful. But the TF cartoon still stands up pretty decent (we watched some of those, too).

    I have no issues with them putting toy tie-in comics in the G.I.Joe books. They're few and far between, and you can always just skip them.

    drawn & quarterly had a 50% sale recently, and this i what i got:



    two each from porcellino, seth and tatsumi. and then some.



    never read any delisle (but have already gave it away two times already, go figure). really liked rutu modans exit wounds, so i'm eager to read her other stuff. and then a lot of chester brown stuff. i already own some of it in german, but i'm really happy that i now have all his english-language releases. he's probably my favorite alternative cartoonist.



    wasn't really hooked onnjason lute's "jar of fools", but since i now live in berlin i thought that i should give his "berlin" series a shot. then some more from anders nilsen and lynda barry (whom i have never read before) and joe matt (dito).
