Sounds like we should expect them to be like the Captain America: The Captain" trade paperback (which he called a "retroactive Epic" collection). That's a normal-sized trade (in terms of dimensions), clocked in at about 520 pages, and has an MSRP of $39.99. If this is what the Epic line will look like, that's perfect.


Ah, sounds very nice actually.

Got my box:

Batman #19
Detective Comics #19
Batman Incorporated #10
Batwoman #19
Earth 2 #11
I, Vampire #19
Avengers #9 & #10
Uncanny Avengers #6 & #7
Fantastic Four #6 & #7
Fearless Defenders #3
FF #6
Guardians of the Galaxy #1 #2
Hawkeye #9
Indestructible Hulk #6
Wolverine #2
X-Factor #254
All-New X-Men #10
Uncanny X-Men #4 & #5
Young Avengers #4
Hypernaturals #10

For some reason, Diamond apparently forgot to send Daredevil and Batman: L'il Gotham, which is deeply irritating.

I haven't had the chance to get stuck in yet, but I do have to say that I'm really sad that this is the end of I, Vampire. What a great book it has been...

I'm already thinking of my cart for May. Here's what I got. This is too much stuff but I don't know what to cut. Probably Age of Bronze and Glory. The first because it will probably stay in print and the second because the series has been cancelled to there's no "rush" to support it. Too bad, too because it was great (at least through the first trade).

SIN TITULO HC (C: 0-1-2)
LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN OMNIBUS TP *Special Discount*
GI JOE A REAL AMERICAN HERO TP VOL 07
TRANSFORMERS CLASSICS TP VOL 05
AGE OF BRONZE TP VOL 03.1 BETRAYAL PT 2 (MR)
GLORY TP VOL 02 WAR TORN (MR)
X-MEN LEGACY TP VOL 02 INVASIVE EXOTICS *Special Discount*
FANTASTIC FOUR TP VOL 02 ROAD TRIP NOW *Special Discount*
X-MEN FALLEN ANGELS TP *Special Discount*
GUNNERKRIGG COURT HC VOL 04 MATERIA MATERIA (C: 0-0-2)
EC AL FELDSTEIN CHILD OF TOMORROW HC (C: 0-1-2)
HARBINGER WARS (VU) #4 (OF 4) REG ZIRCHER
HARBINGER (VU) #14 HARBINGER WARS REG CRAIN
BLOODSHOT (VU) #13 HARBINGER WARS REG BULLOCK
QUANTUM & WOODY #1 REG SOOK *Special Discount*
X-O MANOWAR (VU) #15 REG HARISINE *Special Discount*
SHADOWMAN (VU) #8 REG ZIRCHER
ARCHER & ARMSTRONG (VU) #11 REG PEREZ

Other interesting stuff I'm definitely not getting:

STAR WARS TP VOL 01 IN THE SHADOW OF YAVIN (C: 1-1-2)
ESSENTIAL FANTASTIC FOUR TP VOL 09 *Special Discount*
CEREBUS TP VOL 13 GOING HOME (O/A) (STAR10981)
CEREBUS TP VOL 14 FORM & VOID (STAR13500)
JOHN STANLEY LIBRARY NANCY HC VOL 04

I just dropped Hypernaturals in order to pick up Wolverine and the X-Men. Which means that I'm currently getting six X-books. I feel kind of dirty...

Sin Titulo is something I'll probably get from Amazon Marketplace soon after it comes out when someone's selling it low enough. Like I did with Bucko (so worth it).

But man the order for this month is brutal. And that's with only 2 HC's already at 50% off. Thankfully I've got now $35 in credit to offset (which I had forgotten when I crunched the numbers when DCBS's cart went up) so I can be mildly happy.

One thing making my cart more expensive is discovering that at least some of the Marvel Now titles are pretty damn good. I loved the first issues of Fraction's FF and Fantastic Four, as well as Gillen & McKelvie's Young Avengers. Also digging X-Men Legacy, Daredevil by Waid and Hawkeye by Fraction (not sure the last two count as Now titles but they're good).

I may find others. Mavel's giveaway of first issues on Comixology is paying off for them, at least as far as I'm concerned.

Same here. I hadn't bought any X-Men or Avengers titles in years, but now they're taking over my pull. My hat's off to Marvel just now, because they have managed to put some real substance behind all the NOW! hype. And for the first time in forever, there are a couple of events coming up that really pique my interest (ie Infinity and the X-crossover).

I ordered the first trades of the Marvel Now versions of Fantastic Four, X-Men Legacy and Hawkeye from Amazon and just got them. Man, is Mike Allred's artwork incredible in FF. Darla Deering is Joe Lombard. She spends an entire issue running around in a towel. Well played, Matt Fraction.

Kinda like the trade dress and in particular the spines, which match nicely.
