    Default Wolverine Adamantium Collection About To Cause Pain Across The Entire Comic Industry



    Marvel are sending out these images showing Nick Lowe and Sana Amanat suffering under the size, scale and weight of the $200 Wolverine Adamantium hardcover, coming out alongside the new movie.



    But the editors don't have to print the buggers, collate them, distribute them and put them up on shelves on tippy toe, or carry them down the road to post through a letter box, that it won't even fit through.



    So yes, they are big and heavy. But the real strain will be felt by those who want to read the damn thing

    Aren't they called "Absolute Editions"? DC's been printing them for years, right?

    Geez. I'd imagine they finally just got tired of hearing Remender brag about the Fear Agent HC.

    (That's a joke...mostly.)

    I'd prefer an artists edition of Barry Windsor Smith's Weapon X (which would include Uncanny X-Men #205 as well). This contains Wolverine: Origin , a comic that didn't occur in my personal continuity, so for the sake of my budget (and the poor delivery person's back) I'll pass.

    Absolute Dark Knight = 8.5 x 13 in, Absolute New Frontier = 9 x 16 in
    this crap = 11.5 x 15.5 in

    So yes/no.

    But it does seem like Marvel's compensating for lack of something ...
    could it be ...
    quality stories to collect?

    ... well yeah, but also the editor's missing penis.

    This is one of those times when I accept that as many people are turned on by this as I am turned off. #toeachhisown $$$

    Look how that 16-pounder floats on Nick Lowe's hand in the second pic. Fess up, Nick, you're just holding an empty slipcase!

    This! I'm trying hard here, but I'm having troubles coming up with enough really good Wolverine comics to fill half of this. BWS' Weapon X, the Claremont/ Miller-Mini, perhaps the Kitty Pryde and Wolverine Mini by Claremont and Milgrom, but that's about it, unless they collect X-Men issues where he starred.
