Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

Sinned...did your Marvel HCs still have active digital codes, if so you got an especially great deal at $5 a book, even for remaindered copies.

Replying to my own post to update that this 26lb(!) boxed set arrived today (with packing, it was nearly a 35lb box). I feel bad for my postman, but at least he only had to take it up one staircase. It was really well packed, and I just might take the time to frame (not a custom job, just with a moderately priced frame from Michaels) the Stan Lee signed Alex Ross poster.

I also received a package with the Marvel Oz omnibus and the Image Comics Giant-Sized Kung Fu Bible Stories Treasury Edition comic. It was clearly a happy day at this comic geeks' apartment.

Finally, thank goodness for insanely great discounts from Instocktrades.

Yeah, they still had the codes. Maybe I should eBay them & get a dollar or so back.

Marvel's latest solicitations in Previews has Captain America # 22-25 in premeire hardcover (regular sized) format for $25. That's 4 issues for $25! Crazy! I'm starting to think they are deliberately overpricing their books because they know we can get them at a discount from online stores.

Ouch...even if 25 is double-sized, you have a point about the msrp. Of course, I will be picking this book up from instocktrades, which helps reduce the sticker shock.

People connected with Marvel have publicly stated their pricing is a direct reflection of that market reality. When fans have complained about pricing on their various Twitter and Facebook accounts, Marvel responds to buy them at discount from places like Instocktrade.

I still consider most of their normal hardcovers overpriced, though I admit they don't make the same amount of publishing mistakes that DC commonly makes.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?



Apparently there was a deal recently at Best Buy to get this for $3 if you bought the Blu-ray, or something like that. I opted for the Target exclusive for the Blu-ray and decided to just order the comic online, since I could get a hardcover version. I'm not expecting it to be as good as Dark Horse's excellent Godzilla comics from the 90s, but I liked the new movie enough to want something else set in that world, and the reviews are decent enough.

Plus I'm just a big fucking sucker for trashy tie-in fiction.

Best Buy had a whole mess of that graphic novel by the Blu-ray copies.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

Never bothered reading any of IDW's Godzilla comics since most of the reactions I've read have been pretty meh, but this series is supposed to be one of the better ones. Figured I'd give it a shot.

I think I own that on Comixology, but for $3 I'd probably pick it up for a nice Halloween hand out after I read it.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

Dollar Tree had a new little rack of graphic novels; mainly licensed stuff like Speed Racer.

I picked up The Official Movie Prelude to Legion: Prophets and the Igor Movie Adaptation for Horror Challenge reading.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

i obtained the following from the Tales From Another World Progressive 70% Off sale:

- Kerry and the Scary Things GN Michael Golden Sketch Edition. TFAW was asking $150, so $45 for a B&W Golden sketch is a great deal.
- Sorceress The Enchanting Art of Dan Brereton Sketch Edition (Hardcover). TFAW was asking $119, so $35.70 for a color Brereton sketch was also another wonderful deal.

From my final batch, I received what was supposed to be a nick and dent copy of Marvel's The Evolutionary War Omnibus (70% off), but the copy I received is new, as I cannot find the damage to this copy that would hurt its resale value. This was a classic mistake, or they were kind to me and sent me a new copy because I dropped over $300 on the Progressive Sale.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

I'm seriously contemplating that one.

I have lots of Barks and Rosa in Gladstone singles and trades, but they really do deserve deluxe treatment.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

Some nefarious villain must have slipped it in the bargain bin for some unknown scheme. Truly worth its weight in gold.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

I just got the Spider-Man: Civil War hardcover from GoHastings for 21.75 including shipping! I usually wait for sales before buying things there, but I knew I couldn't wait on this. Although this does raise the question, do I have to read the main CW mini-series or anything else, or will I be able to understand it on its own? I know the general gist of the event, but not many specifics.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

I don't know how I missed it but DC just released The Batman Adventures Volume One which is the comic based on Batman: The Animated Series. That's possibly my favorite version of Batman ever and I had some of the comics growing up and had been hoping this would become a reality so I ordered it and also pre-ordered the second volume which is slated to come out next June. There's also Mad Love and Other Stories out which I'll get eventually.

That has happened to me once or twice. I've never really cataloged my collection very well since I lost the electronic records for it a few years ago.

I've been eagerly anticipating those trades. I've not read more than one or two issues from that series.

Re: What's the last TPB/Graphic Novel you bought?

Black Science. It has breathtakingly amazing artwork by Matteo Scalera. Each panel is so lovingly rendered, and such beautiful detailing has gone into it that it looks like something you'd want to frame and hang up on your wall or make it your FB cover image! Even though it is a bit unrealistic (after all, it's fiction we're talking about), but each new universe depicted in the book is more inventive than the last.

I think if you enjoyed Batman: The Animated Series or even The New Adventures of Batman you'll enjoy this series. Its very similar in tone obviously and the stories are usually decent. I hope that DC releases the entire series because there's quite a few incarnations of it over the years.
