I think its fantastic. Just got the 4th hardcover version as its the sort of thing that I think the normal comic* size versions wouldn't be enough!


*sorry, don't know the right term for this either!

Only the first one has been released if you're talking about the oversized slip case books.
It covers issues 1 - 25 so I'm waiting patiently for the second volume.

I'm up to date with the issues story wise mind you.

No, you're wrong.
