    I need put that on the wish list, will it go out of print quick? All that other stuff by them is pricey. Sandman Absolutes, the GL Omnibus, I need to win the lottery.

    Stan's been steadily telling stories of This Samurai warrior since the mid 80s. The stories have A very serious and historic tone to it. If you like old samurai movies, you'll love this book. You can get the Usagi Yojimbo Saga vol 1 tpb for cheap right now.

If there are any requests, let me!

    This is the Metal Gear Solid deluxe that IDW put out a while ago. Really well built, great paper and the art looks really good. Haven't had a chance to read it yet, but I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

    That MGS book looks awesome. Is it a retelling of the first PS1 game?

    Can anyone explain Shaolin Cowboy to me? There's one titled "Shemp Buffet" coming out this week that I've seen one site report as the original story. I've also seen the TPB from Burlyman, but it has almost 50 more pages. Then there's the "Dark Horse Magazine" which I know nothing about.

    It covers the first metal gear and sons of liberty. It's basically a bigger version of tpb omnibus from years ago.

    Is there a list anywhere about all of Image's deluxe hc-s?
    Also, what are the opinions about Manhattan projects? I read good reviews but somehow the whole thing (and what I saw so far, like Einstein with a machine gun and stuff like that) seems like something that would appeal to, for example, Deadpool fans, which I am (to put it mildly) not.
    But I'm curious because it's Hickman and sci-fi.

    For the record, the Einstein with a machine gun thing is really only centered on one or two issues. I'd actually argue that you would enjoy it more if you're a more well-read or intelligent person. A lot of the main characters are real people from history, whether it's scientists/military personnel/astronauts. To me that helps amp up the zany nature of the comics. There's no random pop culture humor, or being random/crude for the sake of it.

    It's basically the story of what's really going on around the time that the atomic bombs are being created. The world's greatest scientists and leaders are exploring aliens, the occult, alternate realities, and the like. It has the typical grandiose Hickman style writing, where questions aren't answered until many issues later, or things are tied back in to earlier events in a nice way. I have trades, but have considered upgrading to the deluxe edition. There will be 50 issues total, and thus 5 nice HC editions.

    If it helps, I really enjoyed the first 10 issues which are collected in the first HC. Also, I think Pitarra's art gets better as the series goes on, and I can't wait to see his stuff on oversized pages once it hits issue #20 or so. More on Hickman's plotting per an interview he did on 11 o'clock Comics Podcast:

    He wanted to write the first 25 issues just to get to the second 25. The first half of the story is one contained story featuring this crazy cast of characters. The second half will focus on 5 issue arcs revolving around one of the characters and his or her experiences. I think he said the first 5 to come out will be about a Russian cosmonaut, and the next 5 will be about Einstein (I think). I'm assuming it will all come together again at the end in true Hickman fashion. If you have any more questions let me know!

    Thank you for the detailed answer, it certainly got me interested. For the record: I didn't meant to intend that Deadpool fans are not intelligent. Most of the people I know are DP fans (hell, most of planet Earth!).

    I didn't mean to take it that way either. I guess my point is that a lot of the stereotypical Deadpool/Harley Quinn humor these days is random quotes or references for the sake of a laugh, and that Manhattan Projects is very far from that kind of material. Also that if you actually know who Richard Feynman or Harry S. Truman are from your history classes, that it makes the book all the more interesting to see them in such ridiculous situations!

    I started a brief discussion the other day about whether the Shadow Year One by Wagner was HC or not. It is! However, it is not oversized, but it will do. Here are some pics
