    2) Is the "Signature" the crease in the middle of the book?
    3) If I want to remove all the ads from the back of a book but still want to sew it, do I cut just above the crease "keeping the signature" or will that create a weird bunch of niblits at the end of each book?
    1) There's not really a good way to do it. The binding process requires a lot of pressure on the pages, so any glue would get forced all over the place. You could scan and reprint pages if it's only a couple, but with most Marvel books (no matter how old or new they are) it's so many pages that that doesn't end up being very cost effective either.
    2) Yep
    3) You can't have any single pages if you plan to have it smyth or handsewn. Even if you leave part of a page, that's not enough. If you want it oversewn you're okay to remove back covers/non-story pages just like you would if you had the book bound DFAB.

    Also, here are some New Universe books I did for someone, and a Crossgen one as well

    Thanks, guys. Grayson, those books, like all of yours, look amazing.
    I'd love to use that cover when I get around to pulling the trigger on my DP7 bind.
    So those were sewn? I figure that's the only way to get them to open flat like that.
    Also, were you able to get the whole series into one book? Just saw the back cover. Looks like you did. That's terrific news.
    Thanks

    Thanks! Feel free to PM me here or email me at comicbindingpro@gmail.com when you need that cover. And those were smyth sewn and the complete series. DFAB books also lay pretty flat, though not quite as flat as smyth. Oversewn, not so much

    Those bound Duck books look good!

    And this thread pushed me to get my first set bound too. Got Shade the Changing Man.

    Im looking in making a custom absolute DMZ. I plan to buy the series in tpb, scan them into my computer, print out each issue in absolute size and then have them bound. Wondering if this sounds like a good idea and if any of you guys have tried it.

    Unless you own or have free access to a laser printer, the printing cost would be pretty high (a FedEx Kinkos charges about $1.25 per double-sided 8.5X11 page, not sure the price for a larger page, but it's higher. Multiple that times the number of pages and you get the idea.) You could try a service like blurb.com but since you're using copyrighted material I'm not sure if you'd have much luck there.

    Plus there's just the time/effort involved in scanning and resizing so many pages, plus if the art is full bleed you're going to have trouble getting good full page scans depending on the gutter loss of the TPBs. You could pull each page from the binding and scan that way to avoid gutter loss, but man, that is an awfully time-intensive process
