Breaker! :wink:

With a simple premise in that solicit, IDW has made me very, very interested in the ARAH Annual! Also, cool to see John Barber is writing the movie tie-in books.

Sucks to be that person then. Spending $100+ on one title. And an insane habit to have.
The cake is a lie.

I enjoy collecting everything there is,

Postby theskunk » Sat Nov 19, 2011 12:44 pm

Including all of the covers and TPBs. I have found, though, that I can usually buy the one copy weekly (to give my local owner business), and then I usually search and track down alternate covers afterwards. If I spend some time, I can find the IDW A/B covers for $2 at the most ($1 many times), and variants for maybe $4? I was at NYCC, and found tons of IDW covers in the $1 boxes, variants for $4, and TPBs for $4.

I'm sure you guys, who are much more expert at this than me, know all about it.

Yeah, I wonder if that's a typo -- is it Yearbook #1 or #5?

The idea is to release it as Yearbook #5, a continuation of the first four Yearbooks published during the Marvel run, just as A Real American Hero picked up with #156 after the Marvel run ended.
