    Did you read this post and get it reversed in your mind?

Plus, Lemire was probably one of the first writers who gave Ollie some good rogues, that was always the weakness of the GA series but Lemire's new takes on Count Vertigo, Richard Dragon, Red Dart and Killer Moth were just amazing.

    We need an OHC of Lemire's run

    Agreed on all points. I read the first six issues of the series and dropped it. I really wanted to end it at issue 3, but I gave it an arc. I heard Ann Nocenti took over and since I have never read anything she's written -Daredevil included - that I liked, I didn't bother to pick it up again. Then along comes Lemire. This guy is great. Turned chicken shit into chicken soup (I don't like Shado's new history, but what can you do when you've de-aged Ollie 15-20 years?).

    When he left, though, so did I.

    But, I'm pretty happy he's taking over Hawkeye. I'll be picking up that book when he starts! Maybe we'll see some of the same bow-slinging themes there that we could have seen with GA.

    I'm embarrassed. Anyways, now we all have extra clarification, hehe.

    Also, this news deeply saddens me. Perhaps, I did not want to believe it.

    No, not even half of it. Doug Moench, Alan Grant, Devin Grayson and Denny O'Neil wrote other parts.

    Looking at the bright side, the deluxes are not that thick that the glued binding gonna bother you and I have only one absolute (ASS) but I didn't have any problem with its binding when I read it.

    I don't have a copy of it myself (yet), but it looks like Fables Deluxe Vol 9 has an element of sewn binding to it. Instead of being a block of pages glued to the crash, which is in turn glued to the spine, it looks like there are signatures sewn into the crash (which is still glued to the spine). I think this is how Marvel is doing their OHCs at the moment, but I don't have a copy of Vol 9 yet to do a comparison.

    I'll add that Batman Noir: The Long Halloween has great sewn binding. Hopefully this is the start of a trend.

    Yeah, Dixon was too busy writing 10 years worth of Robin and Nightwing.
    Man, he was a solid storyteller.

    Bright side is good,

    I'm mostly worried about the life span of these books, but I suppose a professional book mender could always improve them should they fall apart.
