    I think some channel did buy the rights fort Scalped, hence i'm cautiously optimistic for Absolutes.

    Usually it's vol 2 or three and it always seem weird.
    Fourth World omnibus vol. 2... Ended up costing me as much as vol 1, 3 and 4 combined. Still worth it.

    For a while, and maybe still, Starman and Ex Machina each had one really pricey volume compared to the others. Punisher Max Vol. 4 is probably the king of this dilemma.

    I noticed Marvel is reprinting Punisher MAX in complete collections. I'm looking forward to that. But I doubt it'll bring the price down on the vol. 4.

    So I just ordered the first six volumes of GJ's run on Teen Titans in paperback. I had these a few ago and let them go and decided to buy them again. I noticed that the first two volumes were reprinted and not on newsprint. Now they're on glossy paper. Was a nice surprise. Unfortunately vol. 3 & 4 are still on newsprint.

    Go to Amazon look up the first Harley graphic novel and click on the picture to look inside. It will let you read a chunk of it to decide if you like it.

    Thanks for tip, preview is not availalble on UK's Amazon. Art looks pretty good, think I'd buy it.

Not just the art, but the story, the characters. It's a great run.

    I'll buy books though just to be amazed at his artwork.
    I ordered the overture deluxe just for his art (ive actually never read sandman)

    I'm curious how much you will understand. Even though it's a prequel there are a lot of stuff that requires knowledge about the original run (and also a big spoiler if you don't know how that run ends).

    I finished The Dark Knight Strikes Again and holy molly it is completely mental! I didn't hate it, it was actually ok, just not as good as the first book.

    When it comes to DC/Vertigo I have OHCs and Absolutes, but not Omnibuses, and I'm trying to decide between the iZombie TPBs and the new Omni. Can anyone help me in the next hour or so before I have to place an order?

    Generally with Marvel I'll do an Omni for something with art I'm obsessed with (Allred - check!) and a self-contained story (check!), but I'm a little more prompt to read and re-read with TPBs since they're transportable.

    However, the big difference is build quality. For an older Marvel Omni, I'll almost always buy it because it's durable. For the newer ones, I'm more likely to consider sticking with trades.

    Where is the likely build quality of the iZombie Omnibus based on other Vertigo omnis? Should it be sewn? What about paper quality? Overall, how do you feel about recent builds?

    Thank you!

    (I searched before asking this and I did see your posts of earlier this month about it saying, "now a hit show!" but as long as that's still accompanied by new Allred art I have no complaints )
    Do you read comics in TPBs, HCs, and omnibuses - or are just not sure where to start? Check out my definitive guides to DC (including Rebirth!), Valiant Comics, and Marvel - including every X-Men and Avengers team and each Marvel Event.

    You'll find definitive reading guides including every issue of every major Marvel hero and team, like Black Panther, Captain America, Captain/Ms. Marvel, Daredevil, Deadpool, Spider-Man, & and more!

    maybe I'm a bit late but I still think DC is hit or miss but IZombie is only like 600 pages so probably it will be okay. Can't remember the last awful binding, probably those true mousetraps are things of the past now (hopefully). Paperstock I think will be glossy since it's a recent book, nothing spectacular but above MArvel event ohc level.
