    They learned from the best milkers in the biz!*





    *Marvel are the best milkers, in case there's any confusion.

    I guess I don't even notice the Marvel milking. I like the sound of that though, even though its horrible. I move that DC Collected Editions should change its name to, The Dark Knight Reprinted Formats and Collected Editions and Others.

    The Alan Moore Swamp Thing run was issues #20-64 and Annual #2 plus an issue of DC Comics Presents. That's about 48 regular issues total. Splitting it into 2 volumes would be 24 issues per volume for a total price of $200. That's right in the middle between Preacher and Y. Instead DC is putting into 3 volumes with 16 issues per volume and a total price of $300.
    You make a crucial error in this calculation. If they were 24 issues per volume, it would be at LEAST $125 per volume, and probably actually $150 since they're putting in a lot of recoloring work.

    I understand that the recoloring process can add to the production cost and increase the cover price. But even then I would prefer 2 higher priced volumes over 3 regular price volumes. Right now, it just feels that DC is doing smaller volumes to increase their revenue.

    I wish they'd rush solicit Batman by Morrison v2. For me.

    I don't know why, but I've always imaged an Absolute Swamp Thing as having thick matte paper like Watchmen, but that's not likely going to be the case right?

    I finished reading the Loeb-Sale Bats Omnibus.

    I really dislike the black thick cardboard type covers DC uses for some of their books. While there was no damage that I could see, every time I opened or closed this book you’d hear loud popping and cracking noises.

    Other than that, it’s a good book.

    On my JSA omnibus vol 2 with that same board material, it would pop and crack every time I opened and closed it no matter how gentle I was. Eventually I noticed cracking occurring on the inside of the hinge, enough that I was worried that it would eventually tear entirely if I wasn't super careful.
