    Isn't a lower price enough??

    For me, I like it because I don't have to worry about it going out of stock.

    I've only Pre-Ordered and followed through with it twice at Amzon.
    One was the recent B:Brave&Bold Bronze Age Omni and the other was a non Omni book but lower than I could get at retail. The Batman Omni surprised me and arrived fine despite not being packed great. I was shocked.
    I've never done the Pre-Order, cancel it in the final week(s) before release and then gotten it like I normally would at IST. I will be this time though cause I'm trusting our sources that indicated how important a pre-order is on these two books.

    So, I've done it.

    I wish we could pre-order books on CGN, but they don't allow that.

    What's the consensus of the deluxe editions of Legion of Super Heroes the Great Darkness Saga and the Curse?
    Also, any word if this run will continue in deluxe collections. I noticed they collect issues that all run back-to-back.

    I've tried to read the Great Darkness saga in the new ed. tpb and I just couldn't get into it. And I usually like Bronze age stuff but I just couldn't care about the characters or what's happening to them (I've only read Johns LoSH before) and the art was pretty weak too. Also the first few issues I've managed to read had nothing to do with any kind of saga or darkness.

    I preorder through Amazon as soon as a DC book I want shows up. Because of their preorder price guarantee, however low the price drops to is what you end up paying for it. So if it drops to 60% off for just 5 minutes, you lock in at that price, even if the price is higher on the day of release. You aren't charged until the item ships, and you can cancel the order any time, free of charge. You can also return the book after you receive it, for a full refund. For some reason, it's not uncommon for DC books to drop down below 50% off at some point during the preorder period.

    If it doesn't drop lower than 50% before it's time to make my DCBS order, I just cancel the Amazon order and go with DCBS for 50% off cover. I also use DCBS to order single issues (for 40% off generally).

    Cool. I wonder if someone could ask the guy (who said the preorder is important) if Amazon retail preorders "count," or if it's specifically Direct Market preorders. I don't know either way. I just know that Direct Market preorders are something you have to pay for immediately, and can't cancel. Whereas Amazon you can cancel and also don't actually pay until the release date. I hope Amazon orders would be taken into consideration, but it'd be nice to hear from someone who knows for sure.

    Agree. They used to do that but stopped a few years back. It was a disappointment. I had been using them, but then switched over to DCBS when they stopped.

    OK, thanks. We generally agree (except you don't like Grendel, do ya???).

    I read a lot of the DnA Legion stuff years ago and liked it, but, quite frankly, there is a ton of Bronze Age stuff that I just do not like.

    I just didn't like the execution of Grendel. But I liked the Shadow crossover and some parts of vol1 (especially the longer story at the end) and I'm still excited to read the Batman one.

    That makes two of us.

    I've got this book in my cart, but haven't pulled the trigger since I haven't come across any reviews of the material from that era...

    Honestly maybe skip to "War Child" and just read that cold - it's the most accessible story of the entire run imo.

    What is the final consensus on the Geoff Johns Flash omnibuses? Did they release a vol. 3 without the printing error? Is the binding fine on all of them?

    Thanks guys. Small question on the amazon preordering, if I "purchase" it at 60% off, but then the next day it drops to say 65% off, and I missed it, does it give me automatically that 5%?

    I'm so excited for the Bronze Age Swamp Thing and Kirby's Fourth World omnibi coming out at the end of this year. There's some paperback Kirby from DC as well, with The Demon, Challengers, and Mister Miracle.

    Yes, if it is still on preorder.

    And answering Master Destructor's question regarding whether amazon preorders "count" on the Golden Age Omnis : Yes, they do. He said all preorders count.
