    What's up with this "binding" issue I'm reading about the Absolute Moore Swamp Thing?

    Is it something I should've already noticed? Because I haven't noticed any problmes. What am I supposed to look for, what's the problem exactly? Or are people just bitching because they like to bitch?

    Is anyone else disappointed in the paper quality of the Justice League DE?

    Rather than publish solicitations that end up being cancelled or incorrect anyway, perhaps they’re just going make the content of all their archival collected editions a surprise. I mean, they’ve already been a surprise in terms of content and build quality but at least this way there’s no inaccurate information being released first and less people getting their hopes up for releases that are inevitably pulled from the schedule. (Again, only half kidding here...)

    How does the page quality of the Y the Last Man Omnibus compare to the deluxe editions?

    What do y'all think of Absolute V for Vendetta?

    I love the story, but would you say the art benefits from being enlarged or is deluxe hardcover just a good an option?

    The glue of the individual signatures to the backing is coming loose on mine. This happened immediately so if you haven't had this issue yet it hopefully won't happen to you.

    One of the few Absolutes I have kept, if you can get it for a reasonable price I think I benefits from the better quality paper

    Does the new printing of Geoff Johns Flash Omnibus contain all the same issues as the original printing or did something get updated, besides the cover that is?

    I’m looking for something to add to this weeks IST order for free shipping since the animal man omnibus is 49.99. Not sure I want my bill to double with the flash Omni or just pickup a cheap trade (Sonata maybe??). Any opinions either way would be appreciated.

    The old edition collected Flash 164-176, plus THE FLASH: OUR WORLDS AT WAR #1, THE FLASH: IRON HEIGHTS and THE FLASH SECRET FILES #3. The new edition collects up to #191 and also includes the DC First: Flash and Superman one-shot, as well as the others listed above.

    I found these pictures of the new edition online last night. They're from they're from one of the inkers, so it's safe to say they're legit.

    If you've seen the original 3 omnis, the first is very small, then the 2nd and 3rd are larger and equivalent sizes. You would think with the added material in this new vol 1, that the 3 volumes will be more the same size.
    They could also put in Johns' second run (Barry's return), that goes up to (and hopefully including) Flashpoint. I don't think that has been verified, but it would be great if they did that.
