    Got it.
    Not at all what I said. I am sorry they botched this print run up for you guys that wanted it.

    Gary Friedrich of Ghost Rider lawsuit fame has passed away from Parkinsons Disease at age 75

    Rest in Peace sir.

    Now, not sound disrespectful(cause that is not my intent), how long before Marvel starts cranking out Johnny Blaze MMW, Epics and/or Omnis?
    Speculation has been that his lawsuit and the settlement of it were tied to the material not being produced. Assumption being royalties paid to him were the hangup from the settled lawsuit. Would his estate not be entitled to any monies? Surely he knew, due to the Parkinsons, that he was on borrowed time and the settlement would include for that.

    Has anyone bought the Behold Galactus oversized hardcover? I was wondering how the reproduction looked blown up that much.

    While they were totally forgettable, how did they deal with this during the Ghost Rider movies with Nick Cage back in the day? Maybe since it was movies, there was a totally separate revenue sharing deal with that. I dunno.

    Man, two in one day. Ditko a few weeks ago. Hopefully all these greats had nice long, fulfilling lives, even with illness in old age. Rest in peace.

    I almost bought this when I ordered the Byrne FF V1 Omni on Tuesday night.

    The size is ridiculous though...which is kind of why I want it, but not sure where it would fit on my bookshelf.

    I was considering the book, but than starting thinking about how would it be shipped if other books also got
    ordered and finally (after going back and fourth two days) settled on just getting the two Fantastic Four Omnibuses.

    The pages by the king Kirby look great, and it's not a surprise. Flipping through them reminded me the reading experience of the marvellous Maximum Fantastic Four (http://ripjaggerdojo.blogspot.com/20...um-ff.html?m=1). I guess that the colours make it different than reading an Artist Edition. And Kirby's photomontage never looked so great.

    Not a surprise also the pages by Byrne are absolutely gorgeous reproduced in such a format. I already love that book as much as the artist edition of Byrne's FF.

    Last but not least Buscema's art really benefits from the size too : it kinda made me rediscover how dynamic his panels and pages are, how intense the faces of the characters. Gorgeous.

    The book is so big and heavy that the reading is also quite hilarious. I love it.

    I've heard the recent Cloak & Dagger: Predator & Prey TPB is another bad quality product.

    Btw, my Daredevil Epic Collection Root of Evil arrived and disappointingly it has the badly printed spine (part of the front cover) and curled up edges. I was expecting this as I'd read about the incredibly bad quality but one had hope

    Sounds like this is what we have to look forward to from this line here on out.

    Most had always talked about the quality of the line before that recent Daredevil release.

    I have on preorder. Looking forward to it! As Graphic Autist notes, finding a spot for
    it will be challenging.
