the only new thing to my knowledge is...that it's now in color! :smt011

Basically you chose a reprint for a choice. :smt102

It's a reprint in colour that I personally haven't read because I was trade waiting. I think the colour upgrade will be of interest to the handful that already read it and the OTT ridiculousness will make it interesting for everyone else. Plus the art is gorgeous.

Has the Image Gula not been traded yet?

Ooh you are in for a treat.

Casanova is so good I'm buying it twice.

Nope.

So this is still the Image stuff? If I finally read my Luxuria HC this is what takes place directly after?

You picked a reprint? That's fucking stupid. I call Mutiny.

I'm willing to bet there's maybe five Review Groupers who have read it before.

And it has new material and has been recolored.

Plus, it's next to impossible to find this issue for a reasonable price. Trust me, I looked.

The ruling stands.

Shipping costs, man. Shipping costs. :smt011 :P (I tried to find the second trade a few months ago but couldn't find it one at a decent discount)

Does anyone seriously have issue with this? The series hasn't been reviewed before (I say without checking the list of past choices). A good chunk of people haven't read it. Those that have can just pull out their backissue and save the couple dollars or call principles and not read it. It's been recolored and shit.

I don't see a downside here. :smt102

Having just read the first four issues of Luxuria, it's a lot better than I remember it being. :oops:

Touche.

Anyone who doesn't want to review it on account of it being a reprint can get an indulgence if they want. Everyone else better review it and love it. :twisted:
