The Trades Thread - Hardcovers, Graphic Novels, and More

For what it’s worth I thought the second series of Brink was better. I think the trade comes out later this month.


#5645

I will break the habit of a lifetime and agree with Bobby. I really like Brink and the second story is better, it takes the concept and adds more twists and turns.


#5646

Hmm, Brink V2 is likely to be a cheap buy so might end up gambling on the basis of your posts.


#5647

I picked up the first four trades of Black Science for £4 each. Ugh, what a stinker. it’s easily Remender’s worst book (before everyone jumps on me I’m a big fan of Deadly Class and Low). It’s just a complete mess with characters seemingly dying then coming back, then being from an alternate earth and unfortunately I care for none of them. One of the main sticking points is the way Scalera draws Grant’s nose. I absolutely hate it.


#5648

There’s some issues written by Tynion IV in the Eternal series that really made me take notice of him, between that and Memetic.


#5649

Add my recommendation for volume 2 of Brink Ben if you need any more assurance to pick it up


#5650

Forbidden Planet offering 40% off the RRP of the Black Hammer hardcover. I was probably going to pick this up eventually if I liked the Quantum Age series, but for this price I think I’ll just take pot luck and buy it anyway.

I just got my copy of Avengers: No Surrender, which I’d forgotten I’d ordered. 16 issues for €21, and definitely bulkier-feeling than most of Marvel’s TPBs.

Dealer Alert

Been wanting this but just could pay the high price for it, then this deal came along:

Infinite Crisis Omnibus - Books Etc - £57.26

No idea how long it’ll last.


#5654

Glad you found it for a decent price.

Same thing happened with me a couple of days ago with Absolute Sandman Overture - I wasn’t going to buy it due to the high price, but I saw some pics of the black and white JHW3 art in the extras and got tempted, then the same day I saw a copy from an ebay seller for £45, so jumped on it. Before that the cheapest I’d seen was £63.


#5655

Do you have it yet? Would be interested in your take on it.


#5656

No, it’s on its way. I’ll get some pics and comments up once it comes.


#5657

Did you like Infinite Crisis, Ben?


#5658

Yeah, it was the first DC event I really went from start to finish on, from the Countdown special that started it running all the way to 52.

In trade terms, it’s been pretty much a mess with DC issuing the issues, working out how it all fit together, but not doing that on the trades. Very DC, but odd.


#5659

I enjoyed a lot of it, especially during the build up (Countdown and the OMAC Project being highlights), but found the main mini series a mess. That soured me on it, and I don’t have fond memories. I hope it hold up for you, if you do buy it.


#5660

I agree, though I read only the first, after which I decided I won’t continue on. I think I rven forgot what it was about.


#5661

Sorry you guys didn’t like it. It’s easily one of my favourite reads.


#5662

Yeah, me too. It’s a little inconsistent, but some of the volumes of Black Science have been incredible. Some amazing story techniques used by remender at times and Scalero’s art is fanastic.


#5663

I’m currently waiting for the final Black Science OHC.
