The Trades Thread - Hardcovers, Graphic Novels, and More


#4384

So, can I justify buying the Detective Comics Deluxe hardcover (vol 1) for myself as a Christmas present?


#4385

Absolutely - but only if you get if for a good deal, I know a place…


#4386

Speedyhen?


#4387

The Hen’s offer of £18.11 is decent, but…

How about £16.19?


#4388

Quite tempted by the Fourth World omnibus now. I might see if there are any decent offers on it after Christmas.


#4389

Been in my Amazon GN Wish List for weeks, just waiting for me to hit the pre-order button…


#4390

I think I’m going to wait a couple more weeks for the early-adopters to make sure there aren’t any production problems with it, and then grab it after Christmas. :slight_smile:


#4391

I think not only can you justify it, but you need to do it.

I’ve double dipped on it as well, this run is going to one I remember for a long time, both writing and art.

It mertits a classy collection taking a space on your shelves.


#4392

Ooh, that is a great price. Never used them before, though. They good? Packaging and speed of delivery up to snuff too?


#4393

They’ve been fine when I’ve used them. Not the fastest to send stuff out, but it all arrived safely.


#4394

Packaging is on a par with da SpeedyHen - no one is stealing FP’s crown in this area.

As Dave says, they can take a little longer to send stuff out, but at the price they offer some stuff it’s a trade-off I’m OK with.


#4395

I’ve had no problems with Books Etc either, but remember you have to go into your account and mark books as received (for some reason).


#4396

I’ve wondered about that. What happens if you don’t?


#4397

I’m not brave enough to find out.


#4398

Nothin’.

Used to be that if you didn’t click on it after x days after despatch it marked the purchase as received autonatically, but, as I queried an item, it no longer does that.


#4399

OMG :open_mouth:


#4400

Just saw the description on Amazon - it says “Collects BATMAN #655-658 and #663-683, stories from 52 #30 and#47 and DC Universe #0”, so I guess it is going to collect those two 52 stories, the Joker short from DCU #0, and everything in Morrison’s run (including the Ra’s Al Ghul issues) up to the end of ‘RIP’ and the two Final Crisis ‘Last Rites’ tie-in issues.


#4401

My other delivery is something I can actually lift

DSCN2885


#4402

This is what I’ve been waiting (im)patiently for, for years. I do wonder if there’s a volume 2 or 3 planned - they can’t fit all the rest in one vol, can they?


#4403

Dammit David, you’ve finally tempted me on this one.

A 10%-off voucher for Abebooks (use code EAFJA6) and a low Speedyhen offer made the final price of £67.36 too good to pass up.
