I’ll probably get the Absolute Sandman Overture to complete my set, though the price is ridiculous.
Has anyonevelse had quality control issues with Absolutes?
Seems like about one third of the ones I’ve bought have somethingbwrong with them. One of the Absolute Sandman volumes I bought had a miscut page, where the page got folded before it was trimmed. The copy of Absolute All Star Superman had a split in the binding. The copy of one of the Absolute Planetary volumes had a corner of the dustjacket creased and folded. Another Absolute I bought, can’t remember which, had a big dent across the front board.
These were all promptly returned and exchanged. It’s really unacceptable that these $100 books have flaws.
I managed to return all four without problem, but, just out of curiosity, who pays for defective comic product like this? Does the retailer, if he accepts returns, eat the cost? Does Diamond? Or the publisher?
