    I've only read the first issue and I liked it. But I love all Rememder's own stuff so I don't think I'll be disappointed.

    You are an absolute mind reader Endsville ! Although I am currently fighting against the lack of money. But it is Kevin O'Neill ... And yes Providence is a really strange reading. But as always, Moore craftsmanship in term of narrative and frame structure don't stop to amaze me. I really enjoy Providence myself but it is mostly what it seems like traveler's chitchat if you don't know the Lovecraftverse. I had read most of Lovecraft book when I was a teenager, so even I don't remember a lot of thing, I am a little bit familiar with that universe. Nonetheless after an initial reading, I always read it again with these indispensable annotations https://factsprovidence.wordpress.co.../providence-1/.
    And also, this is only the first collected volume of the story

    I love Lovecraft, have read everything by him.

    Seen some interesting auctions on eBay yesterday: Hellspawn HC went for 23 quid, which is amazing, but there was this Daredevil Man Without Fear by Miller slipcase edition published in '94 if I remember correctly, limited to 1000 pieces and it went for only 88! Crazy, wish I had more money.

    They're comics from Japan so I'd assume that makes them manga's

    Aside from the standard Otomo stuff (Akira and Domu obviously) I wasn't really into manga as well until few years ago. The Comicbooks are Burning in Hell episode on Matsumoto piqued my interest (he apparently is heavily influenced by Moebius, that always gets my attention ) so I picked up the Tekkon Kinkreet collection based on that and never looked back.

    Oh, if you've been following that site then you should check out this great essay on The Comics Journal if you get the chance about not only Providence but The Courtyard and Neonomicon too and some of Moore's other works that compare to them.

    Then you might like Providence so, I guess, if you are thinking of backing the project, picking up the hardcover collecting the first four issues won't hurt, especially since you'd get it in only a couple of months.

    This just happened. Very happy to have them all, one of the best runs ever, vol 6 is library edition, but in very good condition. I prefer smaller books right now, would rather have couple HC's than one chunky omnibus, that's why I'm not gonna upgrade Gotham Central. Anyway, another amazing run collected.

    Is the Black Science hardcover the same size as Marvel and DC OHC's?
    Ya know, the typical "deluxe " size?
    Thanks!

    Wow I didn't know Haunt was available in a hardcover. I've never read it but I've been tempted to buy the TPBs. Does the hardcover include everything?

    Collects first 12 issues. Never seen news about vol 2.

    It's decent - I watched all Trailer Park Boys seasons week ago - with very good art. I'd recommend.

    I think it's supposed to be bigger, like LE size, but I haven't seen the actual book.

    I got mine yesterday from Chapters here in Canada. Its bigger than a Marvel OHC, more in line with a Dark Horse Library. However, the paper quality isn't as good as a Dark Horse Library edition and the pages are a lot thinner than my Hellboy and Goon library editions

    When it comes to best bang for buck when it comes to a deluxe oversized hardcover, Dark Horse takes the cake

    Those chew hc's are, so the pic gives you a pretty good comparison to a "regular" deluxe

    ive been waiting forever to read rachel rising, hoping it would come out in an omni format, because thats how i first experienced echo (via a signed\alternate cover from his comicon booth). excited!

Not only is the French opposition interested in finding this stamp, but also arms dealers that negotiate with the Germans are very interested. Silas receives them all (seperately) and takes on all their (same) jobs. But who does he really work for? And what is on that stamp?

    It's quite the mystery and very very well done imho. The book above is volume 1/2 of the second story arc. The series is available in French, Dutch, German, Spanish and probably also Italian. Perhaps you understand any of those languages? Otherwise spam Titan Comics' Facebook page for an English translation!

    this is the first chance ive had to get online in a while so i am sorry it took me so long to reply, but i really wanted to say thank you for responding to my post and providing all that info! i appreciate you answering all my questions, especially that epic plot summary... alas i am a typical american who only knows one language and so i will not get to experience silas corey at this time =|.
