    Anyone here a fan of Aphrodite IX? I noticed a nice big HC just came out today and I really like how Image presents their stuff, but I know nothing about the title.

    I thought it had been put back a month or two? Either way, mine hasn't arrived yet.

    The Wohl/Fich stuff is forgettable but the recent Hawkins/Sejic stuff is great.

    I kinda wish theyd have held off and collect the Hawkins run with the current IXth Generation series though as thats a direct sequel.

    For those of you who've purchased Image deluxe books, how is the build quality generally?
    Are they sewn+thick paper?

After I'd been in comics for awhile, I did a Slammers graphic novel, published by Marvel in 1982, that was a partial original story of the Slammers. And in the early 90s, I wrote and drew a five issue mini-series, published by Malibu/Bravura and Dark Horse. There have been the few odd short stories, and various drawings including covers and trading cards over the years. IDW has collected all that material, remastered it with new coloring, and reissued it all in a hardcover collection. The collection includes the original art school story, seeing the light of day again for the first time in about 43 years. And IDW did a very nice job with the entire book.

    Well, this pretty much convinced me to buy it. I remember the Star Slammers graphic novel (those were back in the days when Marvel was doing some seriously cool OGNs), but never read it. Not sure why because it always looked cool and I was a big fan of your Thor (which would obviously come a little later).

    Is this an oversized hard cover or regular.

    Thanks for participating in the forum!

    Almost similar high quality to the Dark horse hardcovers. Not as thick paper and not that brilliant binding but it is still miles above the current Marvel and DC books. (so far I've only have 2 Chew and the Saga deluxe).

    A good book for a young teenager (girl or boy) would be one of Marvels RUNAWAYS collections. Great writing by SAGAS BKV, but at a "pg13" level. Marvel has been releasing "Complete Collection" tbp's, should be easy to find.

    Normally my go-to for kids is The Last Unicorn from IDW. But this girl might be a bit too mature for it especially if she's been into anime and video game stuff. If violence isn't a big deal, Glory from Image comics is a nice one. It's kind of like a manga, but also fantasy/sci-fi action. Heroes are also female. They're not driven by typical "I'm in love with a boy" plot lines. It's more about destiny and friendship and strength. There's a bit of nudity and sex but not much. I personally really loved it. Depends on how mature she is for a 13 yr old I guess. Someone mentioned I Kill Giants. That's a good choice.

    Get her 'The Complete Bone'

    Anyone get the Art of He-Man HC? I'm debating whether to get the regular one for $25 or splurge for the Limited Edition version.

    It's just a buncha dick drawings and f-bombs guys, quit being prudes. But yeah, I don't think a 13 year old should be reading something like that unless they're super mature I guess. Or she'd just think you're weird as hell for getting it for her lol. Saga is, as great as it is, pretty much adult-only I would think.
