what about British pounds? bookdepository.com does free intl postage and deals in GBP


Wow, really :shock: ?

Still, there are also restrictions for the amount of euros you can ask for, so if I go to customer service at my bank and ask for my limit to pay with british pounds they will basically do this:

lol but you never know, maybe when they wrote up the list of currencies with restrictions they forgot pounds. :P

Indeed, one never knows ! The thing about it is that Hugo Chavez & co. isn't restricting currencies simply because he's just a dick, it's because he's an incompetent dick who got the economy to bend over on a table for him.

Watchmen

Earth X

The Long Halloween

Kraven's Last Hunt

Zot! (black and white omnibus)

Aaaaand Death Note Volume 1, I guess.

Top 6, that seems about right.

Edit: Don't know if Madman Gargantua counts, but if it does then that too. And Marvels.

Watchmen

The Walking Dead Compendium (that counts right?)

Kingdom Come

erm, beyond that, i dunno, beyond the obvious, the next lot of books are all part of the "sea of great" in which there are lots of TPBs that i consider great, but i'm not sure i could choose between them, it would be so much easier if this thread was top five series.

I will make that thread later tonight and also do paragraphs explaining each of my choices, as I did here.

Shit, I forgot about this.

All right:
Watchmen
The Dark Knight Returns
Arkham Asylum
All Star Superman
Superman Red Son


And I want to add Kingdom Come and Superman: For all seasons, and Old Man Logan. Oh, and the Ultimates and the whole Punisher Max run. But I don't know if they count or not.

C'mon guys, the rule of the thread is that you have to write a short paragraph about why you value these trades so much.

Stop trying to make me emotionally vulnerable.

1. Watchmen
When I bought it I had no idea what to expect. There was no blurb on the back of the edition I bought, just several quotes praising how good it was. My word. I don't think anything could've prepared me. I had to force myself to put it down each night, partially because I wanted sleep, partially because I didn't want it to end. When I finished it I sort of felt a bit lost for what to read/do next. It is most certainly the GN I've connected with most when reading.

2. V for Vendetta
OK, first, lets get the artwork out of the way. I know a lot of people really, really don't like it here, but I think it's great. I know it's very dark, but somehow I felt it fitted well with the content of the story, and in the end, isn't that what comics are about, the art and the story complimenting each other? I thought V was a great character, as I liked him and disliked him in equal measure, and the end of the book was utterly fantastic.

3. Hellboy- Seed of Destruction
I adore this Lovecraftian inspired comic. The art style is probably my favourite thing about it, at first glance, it looks quite simple and bold, but it is in fact rather detailed upon closer inspection. I like the mythological elements to it as well, and how human Hellboy is, whilst being a total badass at the same time. It was just an absolute joy to read, and far exceeded my expectations.

4. Batman: The Killing Joke (Deluxe Edition)
I know, 3 of my 5 are Moore books, and I really don't want to come across as some blind fanboy, but I truly believe that every one of his books mentioned here is worthy of a top 5 spot. In my eyes this is the ultimate Batman comic, I don't really have much more to say on the issue, but I love how well the whole idea of the Joker and Batman being 2 sides of the same coin is so well represented here. I also felt pretty bad for the Joker, which I hadn't felt in previous Batman comics I'd read.

5. Kingdom Come
Another comic that I thoroughly believe could not work as any other medium. It feels so vast in scope, it's engaging from cover to cover, and has some of the best artwork I've ever seen in a comic book. Thoroughly deserving of it's 5 Eisner and Harvey awards, as crossovers go, I'd say it's near unbeatable. Shame I can't really say more on this one as I read it a while ago, but it's next to me on my desk right now, so it's just about to be re-read. I'll update this post when I finish it probably.

I don't own many TPB besides 300 & Watchmen I am more of a comics collector but have recently been binding my own, my personal favorite that I had made is the complete run of Hulk 2099 bound into an 'essential' TPB and John Byrnes Alpha Flight Run (1-28), my comics are such a huge amount that I am going to be making more custom ones here soon. Pictures forthcoming.
