DC’s initial solicits often have these kinds of problems, unfortunately. Often you have to wait until the book is actually published to find out exactly what’s in it.


#2905

Did you ever read the Greyshirt Indigo series by Rick Veitch? It’s pretty terrific.


#2906

No, I’d never actually come across the character before this book.

I know that he has a strip in the Tomorrow Stories anthology (that I’m just about to start reading), so I might move on to the dedicated series after that. Thanks for the recommendation!

Amazon has just updated its listing for the Akira 35th Anniversary Boxset with this image.

Looks like… a big box, I guess!


#2908

Awesome!


#2909

Urge to buy rising… RISING!

Dealer Alert

For anyone considering this:

£51.38 is a damn good price.


#2911

This isn’t too bad either - £65 for the Simonson Thor reprint.


#2912

Wow, that’s a fast price change it was over £100 last night!


#2913

Yep. I’m hoping FP might undercut them later though.


#2914

Not if it’s RRP $125 they won’t, even on 40% off FP’s price will be around £66 +£1 postage.


#2915

Well, that seals it then. Time to put in a pre-order.


#2916

However, for a couple of quid, FP’s packaging will likely be far, far superior to Amazon’s.


#2917

:disappointed_relieved: I guess I’ll wait and see if they do put it for a similar price then.


#2918

I’d grab the Amazon price now, you can easily cancel later if an FP offer turns up.


#2919

No Punisher: War Zone (the final mini he did with Dillon)?


#2920

Hmm, yeah, that is quite the omission, especially as it links to Welcome Back Frank.

My copy of Shang-Chi Master of Kung Fu Omnibus 3 arrived today via Books Etc, who have done well for themselves so will use them again.

Like Volume 2, this Omnibus is a volume that relative to the price its sold for you can only conclude Marvel want to dissuade you from buying any more because it is kind of slim for a RRP $125 item. The only reason I’m biting the bullet on these is they are low run, one-time print items. Besides I’m now 66% of the way there, 4 omnibuses got, 2 to go.

EDIT: Dealer Alert

A couple of days on, if anyone is still after this, looks to be the best price I can find that has free postage in the UK:

Doctor Strange Omnibus (Lee-Ditko) - £35.12

It’s again Books Etc offering it, figure it’s worth a try so have bagged it. My recent viewing of Doctor Strange might have had some influence on this matter.


#2922

Which is the really expensive one?

Is it vol. 1?


#2923

For what? The Lee-Ditko Strange one? Other prices for that start at £40.

If you’re talking more generally, the heaviest hitters right now for what you actually get are the Shang-Chi Omnibuses, of which 3 of 4 are now out.
