    oooh, forgot about kafka. that was an overload of ideas that i dont think i realized the greatness of until well after it was finished.
    • CommentTimeDec 20th 2007
    Automatic Kafka is one of my all-time favorite comics. I have all the issues, but it's definitely worthy of longterm shelflife.

    I'd love to be able to get my hands on Automatic Kafka.

    What happened to Image's plan to put the first 12 issues of American Flagg in trade? Wasn't that announced over four years ago?

    holy shit, that never came out? and i think it might have been dynamic forces.

    Never came out. I originally thought it was DF also, but I remember Erik Larsen fielding questions about this at one point, so it seems as though Image has some involvement with the trade.

    Aztek - Morrison

    DC has this on their list of releases for 2008.

    @Captain Legion

    Also, was Ellis' Red ever collected? I had borrowed the singles but haven't ever found it.

    The RED trade is out of print at Diamond last time I checked a few weeks ago.

    @Will Butler - That HC is a beautiful thing.

    I believe the first two trades were released for the seminal but unfortunately and editorially sabotaged WildCats 3.0. Robbie Morrison's Coup de Tat left what I believe was an obscuring smear of shit across the WildCats' story, if not over the rest of the WildStorm line.

    Man that was a great comic. I think Joe Casey was crippled after that was cancelled. Man, he loved that book like it was his only child. Godland's okay but I think it's too much of a satirising homage to Kirby and Lee to take seriously.

    He did get to finish the story though, even if it isn't the way he planned it to end. What pisses me off is that I can't with good faith sell the two trades to anyone, knowing they won't see an end. I just can't get my head around it. Just collect the whole damn thing so we can sell it.
    They did the same thing with Peter David's Fallen Angel. An excellent series, but crippled because the trades never came out (and because it wasn't a Vertigo title, but whatever, it was on the Vertigo rack in our store).

    Death's Head is definitely collected in trade, two volumes. I have them both. They're Marvel UK ones, maybe they didn't release them in the states?

    Death's Head was released in the States as either "the Life and Times of Death's Head" or "The Incomplete Death's Head" I can't remember which was the US release.

    Hey Will -- I'll bet you could put yourself through med-school selling bound copies of good, uncollected runs on Ebay -- especially if the original comics can be had out of the quarter bins. The Hellstorm stuff all used to turn up there, though I imagine that's changed in the past couple of years.

    I didn't think anyone outside a library had even bound periodicals into books for about 100 years. If you don't mind my asking, who does it for you, and what's it cost you?

    Not Will, but it looks like those books were done by Library Binding Company. I've had more than few books done by them (including a Hellstorm one) and they look familiar. They run $15 + shipping for a basic bind, more if you want it all fancy-like.

    wilhelmg is exactly right. I do use Library Binding Co, and they're incredibly reasonable. Can't say enough good things about their service.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    One of the great thinga about living so far off the beaten path is that it takes so long for the comics to get shipped here I know what is already sold out before it even hits our rack. Brubakers death of Cap was already peaking by the time my issue showed in my file. I hated Cap but I got this one from the first as a Brubaker fan and loved it. Pics make a thread better.<img src="http://<a href="" target="_blank"><img src=""" alt="" />

    The earlier Ellis X stuff ,has it been collected? I have a Ellis story with Kitty Pride and black trenchcoat guy called "Easy Tiger" that was very very good.

    The art from the first Stormwatch runs look a bit dated but the writing is terrific.

    His run on XForce was pretty good as well.
