Well, in my case, that Amazon box has to travel all the way from the US to Perú, so if the package isn't good, I'll get a banged up tpb in the end.

Trust me I hear ya Arion. I just had to do a whole thing with Walmart because I ordered from them a bunch of storage containers for my comics (36) and when they came via Fed Ex I don't know what in the world happened but 18 lids and 11 bases were cracked and/or chipped. My entire family (cause Grandpa had nothing better to do that day and tag along, but what can you say when you're 99, for him this is a big deal :D ) had to go to Walmart for replacements/refunds and then go to another Walmart and clean them out of the boxes.

But everyone likes them because they can actually be lifted by people at their most packed. LOL the Rubbermaids/Sterealites when I'm done with them are nothing but dead weight no one can move.

Good thing I've never ordered anything from Walmart, in fact, I think I've only been to Walmart once or twice when I was in New York in 2000. Loooong time ago.

It's just like other DC Omniboo. It is the same dimensions as Marvel Omniboo, and the binding seems OK so far. You get a slight amount of gutter loss, and the book doesn't lay flat very well, but the art and coloring both look great. The paper is thick, and there is a very nice design on the hardcover book itself (once you remove the dust jacket).

Thanks for the information. I don't think I should order it, I have 16 of the 27 Planetary issues in singles, so I'll probably just track down the rest and have it all in singles.

The Invisibles v. 1 really interests me. Most DC deluxe editions are always good so I'm sure this one is goo too, right?

Yeah. It's the same size, paper quality, etc. It looks really nice next to my DC Omniboo. It's obviously just a lot thinner! I've only just skimmed it so far but it looks great.

I need to buy it. Invisibles is like the only important Morrison title that I don't have.

DCBS Order form updated for new Previews. And I called it, Marvel gets all the 50% off trades this month.

Also Midas, besides the usual 50% off Valiant Bundle deal you'll want to order the Rai #1 Pullbox version. 16 extra story pages not being put into the eventual trade. So you can take the regular Rai #1 and see if it can be flipped to anyone afterwards.

Not sure if I've got my last box yet from DCBS. I may be down to five comics now a month.

I'm wondering if they will be story pages or "filler" that I don't need to spend extra money on. I'm currently guessing it's the latter...
