    I assume you read the first volume of DMZ as you only want volumes 2-5. You can decide if you want to keep reading it or not based on that.

    I would go Lazarus 1-2, East of West, Absolute Watchmen, and the first Absolute Sandman. That might be a little over $150 on instock though.
    52 "bad"??! 52 is incredible, and pretty much everyone loves it.

    Yeah I didn't like SiP either (but i was a lot younger when I read it) but this was very different and very riveting.

    Scalped.
    DMZ starts off great and then really gets silly. It does, however, turn around toward the end. Scapled (so far for me) has remained strong the whole way through.

    I think I need to give scalped a go, I had the first DMZ hc but I sold it as it bored me to be honest

    it's really good, if you didn't want to pick it up based on Aaron's Marvel books, don't worry, it's completely different.

    As of now I only have 2 books on order, due to a large backlog and an impending house move, Locke & Key Master edition 3 and fight club LE but I may put scalped in my speedyhen basket to order when moved.

    Oh and just finished Ivar, Timewalker, my new favourite Valiant book

    Also.... I'm thinking of re-buying Lucifer as I sold the trades (and floppies) a while ago, have DC re-released these as big, hellblazer sized trades?

    None have yet been announced. I suspect they will do more though. Ninjak, Eternal Warrior and Dr. Mirage are all ones they can do where there are no legal issues so I expect those at some point.

    Question for Artist/Gallery edition (or just books of that size like the Hal Foster Tarzans) owners: what is the cheapest but most secure option to display these books?
    Like I want to put them on top of my shelves so I guess some type of painting stand maybe? But with what dimensions?

    Advises are, as always, greatly appreciated.

    I have a couple prints i stand on the top of my shelf about those size. You can use frame/art stands that you can find at arts and crafts stores. They have a wide range of sizes and durability (for the heavier stuff). I think i only paid like $4 a piece for mine.

    I hope they finish the XO run and collect some Bloodshot too.

    And yeah, with the legal issues, I doubt we'll see the Acclaim side ever reprinted

    thanks. I will have to look for stands next time I'm going to town, I've only seen them with the canvases but I wasn't specifically looking for them at that time.
