Guys help. I can't stop fucking buying omnibus editions. They just drop in price so fast and they have so many comics. But I can only read them at home because they're so big. Plus I'm basically completely out of shelf space.

Sorry for the giant shitty photo, its all I have on my phone. Plus it's about a month behind on lots of expensive purchases I haven't been able to put up yet.

Also, you know what's great? The paperback Marvel Masterworks. You can find them at like every used book store on the planet and they usually price them at six fucking bucks. It's actually BETTER than the Showcase/Essential books because they're high quality and in color.

Only downside is some are hard to find in anything but hardcover, which are as expensive and rare as Archive Editions.

how can you read omnibuses? I hate the size and weight and all that gutter loss. Maybe I'm the worst at keeping them in good conditions cause all the spines look like size after I'm done with them

I get tpb now mostly old cheap Showcase/Essential books that way I don't feel bad once they start to fall apart lol they weren't too expensive.

Love the Marvel Masterworks by far my favorite

I decided to put a limit on myself. I gotta read two of the books I bought before buying something new
>>
>>77617299
I feel the same way about the omnibi but they just look so nice, and often have comics that are long out of print.

I try to limit it to series I've already read and like but some like Orion and Byrne FF are just too good to pass up compared to hard to find and poor quality trades.

I have to say the Alias omni I just got is a perfect compromise between content and readability.

I've stopped buying stuff for now, until I work through more of my backlog, because things are just piling up and I have barely touched any of them

...uhm...I dunno, have you tried Eltingville by Evan Dorkin? The Beppo The Clown (am I remembering that right?) strips from Deep Fried by Jason Yungbluth have that same vibe to them as M & C, I think

My maths is terrible, another shelf.

>>77619461
Uhm, a lot when they come out, just keep up w/trusted publishers and cartoonists, I suppose. E-Bay for stuff I've been trying to find for years...the usual. Sorry for such a shit answer!
Give Michael deforge a go, everyone seems to love him (I mean at yr Chicago shop...not Quimby's, is it?!)

>>77619501
I don't really care what you think. As a youth very active in far left politics I spilled plenty of neo-Nazi blood at demos, especially during the Stephen Lawrence trial era. Not trying to be an internet tough guy but we're not all nerds. And anyway I'm a pacifist, now. 'S'funny, I've never been able to take the far right seriously, either!

Not sure then, Quimby's would be the highest profile US LCS I know of, don't think they even SELL capes/Big Two stuff desu. Also, no problem. If I think of anything else...I suppose Johnny Ryan's Boobs pooter and Loady Mcgee stuff has a similar (but much, MUCH more offensive vibe--a collection of his Angry Youth Comics has just been released.
>>
>>77619413
well in terms of cartoon humor I loved Hellboy Junior, Flaming Carrot, Groo the Wanderer and Dan Slott's Ren & Stimpy

then there's Evan Dorkin's other book, Dork

some old school well written Sunday comic strip is Krazy Kat by George Herriman which influenced tons of artists but chiefly amongst them (and my next point) is Robert Crumb. By the way I'm a Crumb fan I like his Mr. Natural the best, could be a good starting point for most newcomers

all those underground comics or "comix" were awesome

Great taste. Personally I think The weirdo Years collection would be an even better starting point but, hey, apples and oranges. crumb was also influenced by Billy deBecks Barney Google, which is effin' GREAT, I rate it as much as Krazy Kat (I know it's not "better", I just prefer it).
Flaming Carrot is wicked!

shit forgot to mention Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers

yeah Barney Google and all those comic strips were huge I mean stuff like Pogo were brilliant, not sure I've seen Walt Kelly listed in Crumb's influences but Pogo changed things and it's a nice read. I tend to try to sample pages online before I splash cash.

Harvey Kurtzman is worth a look to, his Mad stuff, Help! and Jungle Book graphic novel, which was listed in Top 100 English-Language Comics of the Century by The Comics Journal

yeah Weirdo Years is pretty solid

Trashman if you can find it is really leftist and trippy, I have only read a little online

Yeah, I've read everyone you've mentioned, Kurtzman was a HUGE influence on the UG artists, even did a cover for jay Lynch's Bijou comics. Humbug is even MORE worth a look, but the Denis Kitchen book on him is great.

Yes Crumb has DEFINITELY listed Pogo/Kelly amongst his influences!!!

Never really liked Trashman that much. Prefer Spain's (RIP!!!) biker memoirs out of his oeuvre.

I met Tony (Knockabout publisher who put out the big omnibus) at Thought Bubble last weekend, got three BEAUTIFUL sketches from hunt Emerson, you dig his stuff? seeing him work was...damn, such a privilege!

Whether you appreciate his style or not, you have to give props to the fact that it took him a minute, straight to pen. Most mainstream artists do an underdrawing of some kind, judging by what I have personally observed at cons.

A better question would be, "what's NOT amazing about it". Philistine, much?

Oh shortbox with all (and I mean ALL, the whole run ) of Weirdo, Arcades, some self-pubbed etc...

That Druillet stuff is supposed to be classic. I respect him as an artist, definitely, but it's not really my "thing", good for you, though, I bet those won't be around for long! Oh, he knows how to design a page, though! And Cerebus is great.

Yup, every ishof MR, obviously all the bits he did for Weirdo and Arcade, Comix Book (3 issues of that, not sure if he's in every one)...Yellow Dog...I actually wore my t-shirt to Thought Bubble and Hunt emerson and Tony Knockabout complimented me on it! I'm buzzing 'caus in the poster to the new film of Phoebe Gloeckner's Diary Of a teenage Girl, she's clearly wearing a Mickey Rat t-shirt! I speak to Robt.Armstrong on FB quite a bit, he told me how he actually gave her a t-shirtwhen she was a girl (her family knew Crumb and Armstrong played with him in The Cheap suit Serenaders). Mr. emerson told me about the time he met him in France on a visit to Gilbert Shelton. Meeting Hunt was the highlight of my weekend.

Fantagraphics is printing the first four volumes of this over Jan/Feb it looks like. Once again, this is an unknown to me but the descriptions really caught my eye.

If you have any other recommendations for material that is particularly psychedelic, disgusting or bizarre, I'd love to hear it.

Meat Cake is done by this crazy witch lady Dame Darcy, I never really dug her stuff but there's lots of adolescent girls casting spells and making dolls and things like that....

I've never been a fan of CF, either! But, to be fair, A LOT of people do rate him--he's more or less the progenitor of the "thin, uninked pencil line watercolor" comic-making technique that so many people (hANSELLMANN, i'M LOOKING AT YOU) have ripped off. I keep reminding myself to at least pick up one volume but I've just never enjoyed his art that much. VERY influential cartoonist, though.

Thanks! I guess I just outgrew capes in my late teens. Still have a soft spot for those I grew up with (I was a DC, not Marvel kid).

>>77624517
Sorry, psychedelic, bizarre or disgusting? Hhm. I guess Michael Deforge has covered all those at some point....Jesse Jacobs Safari and By This You Shall Know Him are great recent books....Glenn Head's new GN Chicago will be WELL WORTH buying if you like starving/bizarre artist stories....Johnny Ryan is pretty disgusting....
>>77625001 this guy here with the Al Columbia book The Biologic Show knows his shit, problem is he only has one GN ("Pim & Francie's Golden Bear Days") the Biologic Show goes for INSANE prices and the rerst of his stuff is scattered around anthologies (most recently Mome but his best is in Zero Zero, I posted three issues with his work in earlier, and they're rare as shit, too, I'd been after those issues for many years BECAUSE I knew they had Columbia work in 'em. You can get the Mome's cheaply, though, and maybe find a cheap copy of Pim & francie.
>>
>>77625813
You in the US? That's damned good for that, didja bid or "buy now"? But 20 dollars plus postage to UK for a beat up copy, fuck that. I lucked out on a copy of #1 a few years back (old bookshop who didn't know what they had) and I've got about 90% of what he ever published. There is some AMAZING Columbia stuff in those Zero Zero's, you familiar with "I Was Killing Before Killing Was Cool" and "Alfred The Great" ? Real knock-out comix, just amazing.

I'm from Russia. That was my second auction for Biologic show, this time I won it. Thanks for the tip on Al's stuff. I'll look for them.

what the fuck was the point behind that story anyway. By the time I read to the end of it all the plot points had been addressed but it still felt so arbitrary and like an excuse to draw apocalyptic satanic imagery and gore. I understood the explanation they gave as to what was going on and how they were trying to deal with it but I still don't understand the reason all of the ethereal conflict revolved around in the first place or why the characters were the only ones involved if this was supposed to be on a global scale

How is that? Is Mieville worth a damn at the "picture books"?
>>
>>77632705
Mieville should stick to books but Dial H was very good. It was very unexpected and surrealist, and I do wish that I had the benefit of reading it an issue at a time, but it's a thoroughly entertaining read.

It's fucking weird, but in a good way

Catching up on Southern Bastards and I really want to purchase it, but that hardcover just seems so pisspoor. Should I wait and hope for some sort of omnibus like release or just go for trades?

>>77625531
Hipsters are people who pretend they are into comics but doesnt know anything about comics. A person like Vollstix knows probably more about comics than anyone else on this board, including geekculture oriented stuff like capes and shit too. A hipster would probably pretend to read superhero shit cause he wouldnt know about anything else.

>>77626864
Yes, if you stack them like that. If it's only one book it doesnt cause much damage, if any.

Okay, to those of you who have big collections, how much of your stuff have you not read yet?
>>
>>77638480
I have a stack of like 5 books I havent read yet. But that is not because I don't read. It's because I like to build up a pile, then take a day off with nothing but reading comics.

I saw the second trade (I think? It COULD have been the hardcover) at a con but there was so much more I had priority for. Great comic though. Old dude kicks ass. With a STICK. A fucking STICK.

...and now get ready to jizz (NOT 'cause she's all nude, I mean 'cause of the quality of art...who knows ya may jizz 'cause she's naked anyway!)

Like I said (I think?!) dunno if you've read the actual "proper" book but Mr.Emerson, in a few penstrokes, PERFECTLY DISTILLED the character, the joyous re-discovery of sexuality, down to the metaphor of the dirty feet, of Lady Chatterley. Literally, a picture HAS said a thousand words! Again, Hunt Emerson took one of the canonical works of English Lit and totally, completely made it his own. He is a true master, a national treasure and a top bloke....now, here we go....
>>
>>77625877
Actually I would say there are some VERY weird parts in Meat cake...she has a thing for vampires and lesbian sex features a lot, cooking...but probably Pwr Masters would be more "up your street", maybe? It's kind of a weird, psychedelic sci-fi epic...a genre comic told through an artcomix lens...said it before but CF has been INCREDIBLY influential. Ya wanna see a REAL comix hipster, google a pic of him!
>>
>>77638553
Sorry to sound like the elitist snob I try NOT TO BE, but you have (some) good taste. All those contemporary capes are not up my street at all even tho' I was a batfanboy through and through. However the second shelf is great; there are some AMAZING "alternative" cartoonists in those Adventure Time Books , top marks for Miss Don't Touch Me, I almost ordered the Nobrow book when I won a $50 gift certificate in a quiz from the old tcj.com-affiliated blog The Panelists but ended up buying a lot of small stuff. And of course Hansellmann (I don't like him enough to BUY his work, but he can be VERY funny). WICKED Bats and AT figures, too, Anon!
And again, sorry if I came off a bit snobbish, /co/mrade.
>>
>>77639662
"taste" is just an elitist word for opinion. only assholes don't seem to know the difference.
>>
>>77639760
Well, I DID say I try hard to fight against my (slightly) elitist opinion....but farting loudly at the dinner table whilst eating (in the West, at least!) is unarguably "bad taste". Oh, cheers for the lil' ad hominem, there, too!
>>
>>77638431
nah hipsters like underground stuff simply because they're contrarian, they may or may not actually know their shit
like saying some short indie stip is better than Watchmen simply because it's unknown to casuals
>>
>>77640015
I would never say such an asinine statement. Watchmen WAS innovative; it WAS an utter game changer, it DID tear the rulebook into small pieces. I just feel that all the innovation (or, say 95% of it) and inventiveness is coming out of the small press/self-published scene. Capes ceased to be a force for experimentation or originality many years ago. If you look up a bit you'll see I bought the new Howard The Duck, which is GREAT, I love X-Statix, obviously Kirby, Steve Rude is my favourite "mainstream" artist, I mean, I started reading comics before I COULD read (about '81, '82?) and was collecting seriously at about 7 or 8 years of age...before the direct market you could go to any newsagent (basically what you'd call a "corner store" in the US) and see at least three LOOOOOOOONG shelves of comics, from "kids stuff" to Brit comics (and brit reprints of US stuff) and, finally, AMERICAN COMICS. It was possible to buy new US stuff every week; I'd always pick up (or, Granny or Grandad would, I mean!) about 7-10 titles a week, running the gamut of all the above genres.

Also you can't generalise "hipsters" as ALL being "contrarian"; I buy the stuff because I love it and I love THE MEDIUM. I don't care about "casuals", if someone reads comics a bit, fine, it just does not irritate me at all. Branding people with catholic taste in comics as "hipsters" certainly DOES, though.

Hey I even read that Secret Wars #1---biggest load of nonsense I've read in a long time. Utter shit. The Big Two are just getting worse and worse, that's a fact not many could credibly argue with. Like, making Jim Gordon Batman?!?! You can literally HEAR the bottom of the barrel being scraped. Oh yes, with very few exceptions, their well has run dry, dry as a BONE. Oh, and call me a "hipster", pretentious, whatever--I really could not care less.

Actually came back 'cause my mate Loady McGee who posts on here ( he did a Real Stuff storytime a few weeks back in honour of Dennis Eichorn's passing) told me there was a new comics board, aco. I thought he was exaggerating when he said it's 99% porn. Well, he wasn't! Checked the catalogue and couldn't find ONE non-porn comic....I think it's a real missed opportunity, myself, but I suppose it tells us what (most) channers want....

That Safe Area Gorazde H/C looks WICKED, what a great book. Have you read Bumf! yet? I'm thinking it got a bit of a lukewarm reception, maybe? Anyway the actual design of the book looks beautiful--as usual with Fanta!--the detail, those little inlaid (or whatever the correct word is) corner parts and the embossed title, just LOVELY. In fact I prefer that to the Sandman cover, DESU! What is it? Some new spin-off or a book from the original collection? And either my eye is failing me, or that ain't no Dave McKean cover!!! Oh yeah it's definitely not, I see a sig which I can't make out......so, more info on Sandman book (and maybe a photo of the dust jacket?!, please?!?) if possible, /co/mrade?

Might be as good a place as any to shill. I'm >>77641510 and I'm looking to trade my Uncanny X-Force Omni for Walt Simonson Thor omni.
>>
>>77641504
The Sandman book is the collected 6-issue prequel that just wrapped up: Sandman Overture. It's still Gaiman writing, but JH Williams III is on art/covers (although for the single issues, McKean did variant covers). The dust jacket is the cover of issue #1.

I hadn't heard of Bumf before you mentioned it, but by the looks of it...I'm not sure if it would be up my alley. I prefer Sacco when he's shooting straight and reporting, but hey, I suppose he'd be pretty effective at taking jabs at people. I might check it out.

Then you have no idea what a hipster really is. A person who actually knows his shit is not a hipster in my eyes. Hipsters are just following trends when the trends are still new, just to jump on another trend when it becomes too mainstream. Lately it has been "cool" to be geeky. And geeks like geekculture oriented kiddie shit i.e superheroes, sci-fi, fantasy etc. That's what hipsters are pretending to like. Fact is, they don't even care about comics. People who reads alternative/underground/grown up comics often know their shit, otherwise they wouldnt be into it in the first place.
>>
>>77641673
I don't know what to tell you about Y. I really enjoyed it and got the entire collection during FCBD. X-Statix is/was a dirt-cheap omni. If you don't have it, get it.
>>
>>77641661
Not him, but it starts as a parody of Conan/Red Sonja/Slaine/other sword and sorcery comics, so arguably, the first book is the easiest to get into. Starting with volume 2, it turns into more of a political commentary. Then it just keeps going off the rails from there.
>>
>>77641846
Off the rails in a good way or bad way?
>>
>>77641868
I'm only wrapping up vol 2 right now, but I'm enjoying it. Vols 3-4 are apparently satires of politics and religion, and people really seem to like those. After that, the fanbase seems split from what I've heard. But hey, that's still about 100 or so issues that most people agree are pretty great!
>>
>>77641661
Not really but it gets DAMNED good, DAMNED quickly!
>>77641650
Ah, okay; I've seen THAT image around the 'net. I take it you recommend it? I liked a lot of the Sandman arcs....The Corinthian still gives me the shitters.....urgh. I actually BOUGHT the first ish of Sandman from my Grandparent's local newsagent, just because I'd seen the ads and new Gaiman's stuff and dug Sam Keith...unfortunately, though, it got read and re-read, the cover fell off and it eventually got thrown away by my Mum. Very soon after I got into these things called "bags" and "boards".

Re:Sacco, have you checked out Notes From A Defeatist or But I like IT? The latter is his book about music, mostly autobio of him gigging across Europe with a psych/grunge band, also him covering the Fat Possum tour (ya know who put out RL Burnside and those kind of "drone blues" guys?), that's a REALLY good, fun book (picked up my H/C for 2 QUID from my nearest proper comics shop, Notes From A Defeatist was ONE pound from my town's "toy shop that sells Big Two GN's and back issues (oh, and 2000ad and "genre independent" stuff)".
If you can get the former cheaply give it a go, in fact give 'em BOTH a go, "Notes..." has some shonky as hell drawing but more stuff in the vein of "Bumf!!!"
Thanks for the info, too, Anon!
>>77641730
Oh, okay. I have quite a good few X-Statix issues and found some more at my local "comics" shop but didn't have enough cash on me for'em and the other stuff I wanted. But, yeah, great comic.

I don't think Overture tops the original series' high points, but I think it's a worthy prequel, if only because it sets up why Dream was so weak that he could be captured by a bunch of nobodies down on earth. There are a few good cameos too - there's a brief scene with the Corinthian in the first issue that explains why he was able to run amok in the first place.

The art really steals the show, though. JH Williams packs so much into every page (it can occasionally be *too* much). The panels/layouts are busy but gorgeous. There are even two big scenes that fold out into four-page spreads. Shit is crazy.

What's wrong with "catholic taste in comics"?! You do know "catholic" is a synonym for "eclectic", right?!

Are you maybe slightly bitter that a few people have written nice things about me coming back after a long absence, whilst you sit there, griping about people who actually love THE MEDIUM and call them hipsters? I wonder.....there's only two kinds of comics. Good, and bad.
I wish more people knew about the entomology of the word "hipster", then being called it wouldn't seem like a bad thing at all, in fact quite the opposite.

Never been on Reddit.

That's the thing I like about /co/, it keeps your ego in check. For every "hey, good to see you back vollstix" there's been an equal number of people who obviously think I'm a cunt!
>>77645451
Never trip"fagged", but I'm not worried....I'm with Louis-Ferdinand Celine on that one...just kidding, not really,it IS nice to be popular...pretty crazy to think that posting a collection of non-mainstream comix can inspire hatred! Ah well, ya learn not to take this stuff personally!
>>77646905
No disrespect intended, you have a nice collection of capestuff but don't you think DC could do with hiring a REALLY GREAT book designer? Thse spines always look so damned ugly to me.

Yeah, I agree that some consistency would be nice. My favourite thing about collecting New 52 stuff was the line-wide consistency on my shelf, and now they've fucked it up by changing what is classed as consistency. It's why I love Hellblazer new editions - they look great on a shelf together. And the DC Graphic Novel collection that builds the Alex Ross art along the spines.

Would love those Hellblazer's. Such a great comic. You heard the stories about Moore and Delano meeting Constantine IRL? Explainable but the stories are kind of weird. Azzarello saw him too but avoided "him" on purpose, apparently. Very weird.
>>
>>77649325
It's a cool story. The idea that this comic character is so pervasive that he get's into his writer's minds to the point that they actually get an opportunity to meet the focal point of their creativity.

The books themselves are really nice. Working towards everything Hellblazer in chronological order, think they're up to volume 12 and no signs of stopping any time soon, which is great.

Mome was an anthology that contained both short stories and longer series. Life With Mr Dangerous was the longest running story in Mome I think. Also those Paper Rad/Problem Solvers people had a pretty long running series in it too. But there arent any excerpts like in Best American Comics.

No new purchases to speak of, but I'm finally set up on Alaska's overpriced data-capped internet!

Possibly, anon. These are some fairly large stores to boot. I've seen two so far, but apparently there are a few more in the Anchorage area. They sell pop culture merchandise as well, including a few POP! figures that are a bit harder to find these days. I'm planning to grab and Egon one for my friend in Texas if it's still there next time I stop by.

>>77664567
I'll post one later, since I forgot my wallet in the car when my wife went to work this morning. They're pretty much the same as the one I had back in the day in Tennessee, but the one they gave me here feels much flimsier.
>>
>>77650697
Yeah like Loady said. Also the Oliver Schwauren book consists of all (and there were a lot) of stories he did for Mome. Either way it's worth trying to pick up, lots of Johnathan Bennett in the first few issues, a great, great non-boring autobio cartoonist who draws like a dream.
The Ben Jones (Paper Radr dude) was a collaboration written by him and drawn by Frank Santoro, it was basically just offshoot stories from their Cold Heat series.

Consider the following. You post like a fag, your shits all retarded and you engage people with petty retorts that will only bring more negative replies. It's why you're getting called a newfag and being told to go back to reddit.

There's this little book store right besides my university that sells a tons of comic books and manga for dirt cheap. Picked all these (except Hellblazer) there over the month for absolutely nothing.
I also managed to get Blacksad vol1, the last three volumes of Ordinary Victories (Le Combat Ordinaire - Manu Larcenet) and the first dozen volumes of Shamo (Coq de Combat - Akio Tanaka) by browsing this place. I swear they are gonna ruin me by the time I'm done school.

>Captain marvel , Kelly sue...

god dammit will they ever collect Genis-vell by PAD? ... its one of my favorite runs and i only have part of it in floppy ;_;


...also a question:, does anyone have basic recommendations for entry level Dredd? I dont think I'm going to be down for collecting all the case files but are there some decent stand alone collections for someone who just wants to read about punks getting sent to the iso cubes? I'd just like a couple nice HC's of Dredd when i need to scratch that itch.

Picked up the walking dead compendium yesterday along with red green and blue lantern rings. Found the axis tie in tucked away on a sheriff today.
8/10 haul. Would have been better if they had a black lantern ring to finish off my collection

What are you all reading right now? I'm reading the omni of Kirby's second Cap run. Apparently at the time it came out it caused a problem with marvelfags because it ignored mainline continuity. At this point, though, that seems more a feature than a bug.
The stories are a weird combo of silver and bronze age tyoe stuff.
I love it.
>>
>>77676866
I'm half way through the Nextwave Complete Collection. Its excellent so far
>>
>>77676866
I think the problem was it was a harsh tonal shift from Steve Engleheart's run that was focused on political/social commentary to Kirby going full Kirby. Both are really solid though

I'm reading Claremont X-men, just finished the two issue story where they get kidnapped by Arcade and Colossus get's brainwashed and tries to kill Cyclops and Wolverine for the glory of the motherland

monster of frankenstein

i highly reccomend you all pick up the new monster of frankenstein book. its 31 issues and 500 pages for $23 bucks.. printed in color

SOME stuff in the book is not in color however, but the monster of frankestein run is, and other stuff is as well.. i'd say about 70% of the book is in color

it's a super dense read and really great so far. it takes a very long time to read, but that's a good thing for me

I'd love that. I've got most of the Classic trades they released, except for the last Alan Davis collection.

>>77676598
My first Dredd stuff was Judge Dredd: The Henry Flint Collection, which is a fun collection of one-off stories featuring the art of Henry Flint.

>the two issue story where they get kidnapped by Arcade
Good stuff, that. The first issue (Uncanny X-Men #123) is the pride of my collection, being that Arcade is my favorite Marvel villain.

>>77678097
I've got the Essential Monster Of Frankenstein and the black & white is excellent for the mood of the stories, gives it that classic horror movie feel. Might be next on my list of Marvel horror titles to read/re-read now that we're getting settled in at the new house.

>>77681460

Brand-spanking new deluxe HC by the newest publisher in Sweden. They've been releasing fan-favourites in deluxe HC format, they already have Valerian and Lauraline and Thorgal and are adding Blake and Mortimer next year.

I can only hope they snag Corto Maltese from those faggots at Kolik. :^)
>>
>>77683062
>being that Arcade is my favorite Marvel villain.

Yeah reading a classic story with him just made me realize that Avengers Arena was worse that I thought. In an attempt to make the villain more sinister it ruined everything about him that's great

nice original copy of the stand... i really wish i could find a copy of the stand that comes in 2-4 books for easier reading but it just doesn't exist....

i'd just like something i could bring to work that wasn't fuck huge. i pulled out my shitty mass market paperback the other day to start rereading. i think im going to do like 50 pages a day for the next 3/4 of a month or so and knock it out. by far the best book ive ever read

This is probably a dumb question but is BPRD Hell on Earth the same series as BPRD that I see people owning those bright green books? Or is it a totally different series?

>>77686286
Those bright green books are the Plague of Frogs omnibuses. The Hell on Earth storyline comes after that and will be collected in the same way only after it ends. More info here: http://hellboy.wikia.com/wiki/Trade_Paperback_Collections

Got these in the mail today. Descender is awesome. The art is amazing. Though the sound effects didn't really match up with the art. I'm assuming that they were done by the letterer and not the artist.

Oh, and Fantagraphics is having 40% off everything in their store on Cyber Monday for anyone who is interested.

They said everything, so I'd assume so. As long as it is in stock of course.

Well, it's normally $75, so even on sale it'll be probably cheaper through places like IST or Amazon.
>>
>>77693155
It'll be about the same as Amazon's price, but cheaper than IST. Not sure how much Fanta charges for shipping though. I've never bought from them directly.

Not got a pic yet, but just took delivery of Fable Deluxe Volume 1. Never read Fables before, so got my fingers crossed that I like it.

Anyone know whether these Deluxes will be heading out of print any time soon? If so I'll try and pick them up ASAP.

I think it looks different because it's published by someone other than DC, which would at least be a better excuse than, "Meh, we just felt like changing things up." which usually seems to be the case.

Didn't Eisner's family get the rights back from DC recently or something, hence Dynamite running a Spirit series now?
