The Official Collected Editions Thread (New & Improved!)

Welcome to the new and improved Collected Editions thread!

Important Links:

Marvel Masterworks Resource Page - This is a great site with information primarily geared towards the prestige Masterworks line but also covers DC Archives and all other forms of collected editions.

Masterworks Messageboard - The forums to the previous website, great for marvel/dc/other discussions as well as personal binding projects

Tales of Wonder - One of the two internet discount bookstores I use to buy my books from. Great customer service. New books generally at least 30% off cover. Free shipping if you spend a certain amount (I think it's $100). Preview of trades coming out next wednesday each Friday.

In Stock Trades - The other internet discount bookstore and my primary shopping place. Good customer service, great packaging, they only list on their website what they actually have in stock so there is never any confusion. Books at least 35% off cover and free shipping over a certain amount. I've been ordering from these guys for years and have never been disappointed.

The TPBList - very useful website with a wealth of resources on collected editions since the inception of the graphic novel. I particularly like how they are organized within runs of characters, so say if you are interest in Spider-Man trades you can see how All spider-man comics were collected (or not) starting with Amazing Fantasy #15.

Latest Marvel monthly solicitations - August 2009

Latest DC monthly solicitations - August 2009

Released this week - Post where I update the trades being released on Wednesday



Because who wants to buy floppies, right? :bgrin:

I'll post upcoming solicitations, reviews, and anything else relating to trades.

I'm currently reading Wolverine vol. 3: Return of the Native and from there I'vr got Ultimate FF vol. 2 HC and then Magnus Robot Fighter Archives vol. 3.

There is a mess of books piling up for me to buy (I am waiting a month or so before making more purchases) including Ultimate Spider-man hc vol. 8, the new Grendel Devil by the Deed hc (even though I own the old graphitti designs version), Shadowpact, Checkmate, and Secret Six trades, and some other random stuff.

    Sano - any idea why Wolverine vol. 3 is marked with the Marvel Knights imprint? Were the comics? Or do you think they decided to retcon these issues out of canon? It seems weird...has the native popped up anywhere else? Did the story ever finish? The last issue kinda left things hanging. Also Sabretooth was one bastard in this series...how can he be with the x-men after
    killing wolverine's unborn kid and possibly the native as well??
  • SanoSano SRKSANO on PS4 Joined: Posts: 12,987 mod
    It's weird. I think the Native story ran with the Marvel Knights Logo. It is still the same number Wolverine series that is going on today.

    Maybe it's like Marvel Knights Spider-Man that started that way and turned into Sensational Spider-Man, but the part of Spider-Man during Marvel Knights, Millar's book is canon, big thing being that's where Scorpion became Venom which is still being used. Or like how Marvel Knights 4 later lost the Marvel Knights part and just became 4. Seems like MK falls into "It's canon if we feel like making it canon and we will take away the MK logo when we want it to be canon" or something along those lines.

    But the Native and everything done by Rucka is not referenced ever again. But that is really common in Wolverine's comic, people not referencing other people's runs. So it's kind of hard to say. Wolverine Origins references lots of old stuff, but it has to because it's called Origins and how can they not lol!

    They did at the very least mention the Native's story in one of the Marvel Universe comics in Sabretooth's bio, and it was the very last thing they said about him since he was a bit inactive after that story, so it is prolly canon. Unless Marvel drops a new book that omits this info.

    As far as it contradicting anything, at that point in time Sabretooth was supposed to have adamantium in his skeleton, so a certain thing Wolverine did to him in that story should of been impossible. But for some unkown reason Sabretooth doesn't have adamantium right now anyway, we have no idea how he lost it a second time. So everything works out okay I guess as long as Sabretooth looses the adamantium prior to that story... I suppose... hmm, there's a way for me to get a No-Prize in here somewhere... :rofl:

    Sabretooth as an X-Men is complicated. He's with the X-Men because the X-Mansion is where the government wants to keep all the less than 200 Mutants for their protection, they are an endangered species who Mutant haters want to kill off to end Mutants once and for all. I think Toad is still there for the same reason. No new Mutants are being born either. They have Sabretooth with the X-Men because they are keeping him in check with nano technology in his blood.

    Wolverine's not happy about it and is against Sabretooth being there. He's currently trying to murder him in his book haw haw!
  • SanoSano SRKSANO on PS4 Joined: Posts: 12,987 mod
    Yeah, Native is still part of Sabretooth's Marvel bio, which is word for word the same thing in the Marvel Universe comic, so it's still canon. Native's mentioned all the way at the bottom.

    Heh, Native has a bio too. Hooray for 616!

    I'm thinking about picking up some Deadpool TPBs... is there anything you guys can recommend?
  • P. GorathP. Gorath @ButtonMashLA Joined: Posts: 6,698 ✭✭✭✭✭ OG
    there are only 2 deadpool tpb's from his regular series: one that collected the first five issues and the other that collects a wolverine crossover including deadpool #67-70. Both are OOP. beyond that it is just cable & deadpool


    Finished the "N-Zone" arc of Ultimate FF. Thought it started out slow but ended up being very good. The humor is off sometimes, usually with Reed and Sue. I find it funny that 20 issues in and they still dont have the "4"'s on their uniforms

    Hell yeah.

    The HC isnt that nice IMO though. It's smaller then the regular issues, wich doesnt work well with the comic. Separate issues will murder your wallet at the moment though.

    His stories are freaking great. Dini really brought 'Detective' back into Detective Comics with great mysteries for Batman to solve. Paul Dini owns on every level.

    ....at the top of my head, all that I remember is...

    -Rann-Thanagar War(I think that's how it's spelled, don't know cause I didn't read it lol.
    -OMAC Project-My personal favorite.
    -Villians United
    -Days of Vengance



    There are also some arcs I read that come from the main books, but I don't know if they officially count as Countdown to IC. Superman:Sacrifice, the second part of the Red Hood arc in Batman, and I think there was a Teen Titans/Outsiders trade(The Death and Return of Donna Troy IIRC).

    I'll look around later and see if I can find a full listing(if someone doesn't beat me to it).

    EDIT: JLA: Crisis of Consicence also.

    Thanks.

    yeah, all the leadup to Infinite Crisis was laid out before the first arc of Titans (The event that started it was the death of Donna Troy in Graduation Day), then Countdown to Infinite Crisis (Where Max Lord and Ted Kord square off), then OMAC Project (Countdown is actually collected in the OMAC Trade), followed by R-T War, VU, DoV, and CoC.

    thanks for the heads up.

    I really only want VU, and DoV.

    I also need GLC: Recharge.

    So I just finished the Clone Saga trade(awesome read), and I just have one question...

    ...does this mean Jessica will be gay? LOL.

    9 Issues plus the Bendis/Bagley Spotlight for $30. Worth the price IMO.

    Picked up Batman: Detective upon your suggestions. Nice. I really didn't like the Dr. Phosphorous issue (I know Dini didn't write that one), it just seemed so bad compared to the other ones.

    finished Ultimate Fantastic Four vol. 2 Hardcover - was underimpressed by the Mike Carrey two-parter...felt like Morrison-lite. Also the annual seemed a little out of place continuity-wise.

    Started reading Daredevil vol. 1 hardcover...kevin smith cannot write a comic book.
  • boxbox Joined: Posts: 1,611
    Some Non DC/marvel universe suggestions for some of the newer readers out there.

    Watchmen by Allan Moore. This is usually agreed upon as the best comic series of all-time. Superheroes living in a world on the brink of nuclear war. You can pick up the trade which collects all 12 issues.

    Maus: A Survivor's Tale. I read this back in school. Loved it then, and still love it now. Details the experiences of a survivor from WWII. The story comes in two parts I do believe.

    Bone: The one volume edition. Collects the entire Bone series. The story is a little goofy and isn't really for everyone, but the characters are humorous and enjoyable.

    Y the Last Man: There's 8 volumes of trades so far. The series is ending soon. I think there's 2 more volumes that will come out.

    yeah they are going slow and some of the volumes have only included one arc when they could be doing 2-3 per book.

    Finished Daredevil vol. 1 HC..the kevin smith arc was pretty bad but the David Mack arc was quite good.

    I've never read any of Neil Gaiman's Sandman series. I'm thinking of picking it up though. I've heard it's on the same tier as Watchmen, dark knight returns, Maus... all of which I enjoyed immensely.

    I wouldn't necessarily say that. The story telling is on the same high level of quality, but it's almost pure fantasy. It may or may not be for you, though I definitely recommend trying it.

    Two more sounds about right. BKV said he's planning on finishing at 60 issues, and (if I remember right) the current eight volumes collect 1 thru 48.


    I picked up Superman All-Star volume one today. This is a damn beautiful book.

    This is a must-buy. The Wildcats are my favorite superhero team and Alan Moore's stories are a big reason why. The artwork gets kind of inconsistent because Charest doesn't draw all of it, but it really does go to show that a good script is more important than good art.

    Just check out Sandman, boxy. It's a universal classic among the intellectual elite. I'm sure a man with your impeccable tastes will appreciate such an epic work of genius. Sandman doesn't need to be read in order, so if you want to just check out one TPB at a time, I recommend volume 7, Brief Lives.

    By the way, you ever get around to reading Bone?

    Hey guys, I've been meaning to pick up some Hellboy collections but have no idea where to start. Any HB fans out there want to recommend any trades/HCs that you think are necessary reading for the character?

    Last collection I bought was the hardcover Runaways: Vol. 2. Gorgeous, incredibly well put together book. Gotta love that oversized printing.

    Hellboy: The Chained Coffin and Other Stories is a really nice one. So is Wake The Devil. If you want to read them in order, the first one is Seed of Destruction. But I think Hellboy is one of those series where it doesn't kill you if you skip around. You can still get a good sense of Hellboy and his world in the individual TPBs.

    Although I haven't read them, the B.P.R.D. series is pretty well-respected. It's most likely awesome because Guy Davis draws it.

    and if you are into Hellboy, and stories of that ilk, you'll probably enjoy Shadowpact.

    if you havent' been reading the series, they're both good.

    I'm really digging Sandman. I grabbed Volume 1, read it... then I grabbed Volumes 2-11. Thank god graphic novels were 30% off at the comic convention. I've been reading em in order and am on volume 6 right now.

    I read Bone. It was a fun read. A good change of pace from all the other "serious" graphic novels I've been reading lately. I kinda wish it was in color, but oh well.

    I recently got Daisy Kutter: The Last Train by Kazu Kibuishi. I highly recommend it. I enjoyed it very much. It was a steampunkish cowboy adventure. Short sweet and entertaining.

    I also got all three Volumes of Scott Pilgrim by Bryan Lee O'Malley, and I love it. Love, love, love, love it. I've reread each volume like 4 times. Great comedy action goofy comic fun.

    Using the internets I stole/read all of Preacher like a month ago. God I was missing out, that was beautiful. Jesse Custer is the man.

    I read Flight Vol 3, and throughly enjoyed it, I have Vol 2 here, but I haven't read it yet.

    Bone One Volume edition is waiting to be read as well.

    Batman Year 100 by Paul Pope was quite cool. The art takes a little bit to get used to, but it's a very nice/different take on Batman. I got 100% on backorder from Amazon by Pope too, so I'm awaiting that.

    Same with Flight Vol 1. I gots me lots of reading to do.

    Scholastic is publishing all 9 individual volumes in color. I think at least 3 or 4 of them have already come out, and they are only 10 bucks a pop. The colorist is the guy who colors the covers. Hopefully, one day there will be an oversize, hardcover, color one-volume edition of Bone.

    Finished Secret Six. Thought it was pretty good, but not quite as good as VU + IC Special.

    Currently reading Crisis on Multiple Earths The Team-Ups vol. 2 which is silver age goodness so far.

    I got that massive The Making of Star Wars book that just came out so I am reading that now as well...very good stuff, and I'm only a casual fan

    Reading Batman Black and White Volume 3 now that came out last week. Lots of goodies from Don McGregor, Mahfood, Cooke, Schwartz and even Brubaker wrote a story plus a whole lot more people. I love how they get like the whole comic book industry past and present to contribute Batman stories. Good stuff as always and a great addition if you have the other 2 Volumes. :smile:

    Just starting to get into these Batman Graphic novels. Finished up DKR, Long Halloween, and the Killing Joke. Thinking about getting Hush since I love Jim Lee's artwork.
