    • One of my son's friends gave him a copy of, The Adventures of Luther Arkwright (the ed. with Mike's introduction). He was so pleased he SMS'd me to let me know. I'm quite pleased, because it's years since I read it, although I do have a copy of, Heart of Empire, so this is my chance to read it again.

        Amazingly, I have the large format books 1 and 2, but never got the full set. Need to catch up.

        Surrey Library is doing me proud - X-men: The Adventures of Cyclops and Phoenix (the origin of Cable and following series) and then Jonah Hex - Shadows West (the Truman series)

        • I have the Brazilian softcover 2 volumes version of "the Adventures of Luther Arkwright". Both Mike and Alan Moore wrote introductions to these ones I have.

          • Was reading hardcover compilations of Sandman and Witchblade before I got laid up. Annoyed with Witchblade because there are crossovers with other comics that are not in the compilation so I got left hanging in places. Also picked up a glossy Dr. Strange, loved all those psychedelic pages from back in the day.

            • I have just acquired the Saga Compendium, a massive ~1200 pages paperback. I had read it in the digital format ( I now have an amazon fire 7 ) and loved it. I am also, buying the Sandman 30 years celebration reissues in Portuguese.

              • Collecting/reading the Akira Graphics novel/books.
                I own/have read the first 3 so far.
                Really interesting to read the books to see how much the Anime cartoon was cut down.

                • I love Akira. I'm contemplating buying the Saga Omnibus. Everyone is raving about it, but I never actualy read Saga.

                    Some time ago I bought the first two collected issues on Comixology Then a few months later I decided to read it. Well, this has got me really broke because after finishing volume2 I just had to buy everything else. I think I read the whole thing in two or three days.

                    This was my last Christmas present:

                    This is what I wrote on Goodreads after finishing it:

                    If you don't want to spend a weekend reading 9 collected issues and nearly become broke in the process ( thank you Comixology) don't start reading volume 1 out of curiosity. Jokes apart and good humor left behind, I can't say I did not love this amazing mashup of Parenthood 101, Moonshadow, Farscape, Star Wars well-titled Saga, it is empirically proved that I thought this awesome. More to come in later reviews.
                    By the way, Y: The Last Man, by the same author Brian K Vaughan, suffers from the same "problem". Don't start reading unless you want to do anything else at the weekend. ;-)

                    • I remember really enjoying watching the Akira cartoon many years ago and it blew me Away.
                      30 years Later, I finally got the graphic novels.
                      I love the art. Not super detailed, but really portrays the mood of the story well.
                      So interesting to read the full backstory.

                        That sounds really interesting. I really liked the movie and picked it up recently on DVD at a thrift store for a crazy .99 cents. I haven't got around to re-watching it yet, but will probably squeeze a screening in this week. The graphic novels sound cool that they go in to more depth than the film.

                          It's been fun reading these from time to time.

                            I have seen a new collection of black and white hardcovers being published here every 15 days and I bought the first volume because the price was 2,5 Dollars but the other issues cost 3 times that so I can't afford them. I was never crazy about the books but I have always liked the comics a lot when I was in my teens. I had a friend that bought every single issue he saw

                            But the thing is awesome:

                            Here is a pic of the whole thing, makes one wonder about the joys rich people have access hahaha :-)

                                Yeah Wow, that IS impressive.
                                I probably wouldn't throw that sort of money at something like that, but it DOES look very cool.
                                I enjoy just picking up an old Conan comic every now and then and reading it for fun.
