hi guys not sure if this is happening in usa but was in local shop and seen a large hardback spiderman comic book for 2.99 so bought it and since have joined and subscribed and will be recieveing 2 books a month at 9.99 pounds each and also get a free mug and book ends and hulk dvd.

book 1 is spiderman coming home which isnt bad for only 2.99!!!
heres some pics

20 pounds a month seems like a great price for 2 books i think and theres around 60 books in all im quite excited about it and was wondering if this offer is also on in the usa or canada? or have you guys already had this?
heres the site
well worth a look and collecting

I think that is a Euro only promotion.

HC comics in the states generally run in the $20 and up price point per individual release, and are generally only collections of whatever storyline just ended in the monthly issues. Occasionally there will be an original GN in HC, but those seem to be few and far between these days.

There isn't a subscription GN club or anything like that currently running this side of the pond (so to speak).

Let us know what is in each of those books if you don't mind.

yeah i sure will
so far the spiderman book is really good and bonus stuff is artwork of spiderman by different artists through the ages.

ill take some pics of inside the books and things if you like.xmen book is next and iron man extremis.

once you collect all of them it has stunning display on the sides of book i think itll look great.im actually very excited about the collection as i havent really read many comics and missed out on a lot of info and story.the collections meant to be giving the best marvel comics stories that fans liked or something.

what else would you like to know or see about the books?

wow...

that's a nice looking tome.

I don't think we'd get anything close to that for "bonus content" in one single volume in the states without a price tag nearing $50-$75. Not to mention a subscription program with added bookends and gifts.

The only thing we have close to this setup is the Dr. Seuss book collection or the Disney books. They both are mail subscription programs for early/beginning readers and usually get you a very chintzy plastic bookend set or a tote bag, but that would be it.

i see seems we always get these kinds of magazine collections over here but mostly its like star trek dvd collection where you buy the mag and get a dvd with 4 episodes on it and other tv shows but never seen a actual comic book collection before especially hardbacked books and for 9.99 pounds each seems great considering if i went to our bookstore they charge like £20 to £25 for 1 book sometimes more.

im patiently awaiting my next 2 books and says because i paid with card for whole subscrition ill be getting my next book iron man free and the xmen book but my 2 book ends which say pow and the incredible hulk dvd and bag satchel thing and mug are being sent with different magazines im not that bothered about the dvd or bag as seen the film and just dont like those shoulder slung satchel bags at all they remind me of a females handbag lol

will add pics and info as the books come :lol:

funnily enough the spiderman book was the first book released in the graphic novel collection yet on the side of the book its apparently number 21 in the series of coming books.
Image
so im thinking that probably wont get to see the picture unfold along the sides of the books as i get them as seems they are just releasing them in any order and you prob cant make the side picture until you have all of them

starting to get annoyed with the company i have had to buy the 4 issues so far from various shops 1st off i registered online and set up subscription yet novels never arrived so phoned them up to be told no record of me joining and setting up subscription so then i set it up over the phone giving details and bank details again and as we speak had to buy issue 4 from shopsagain and still no books sent from the company so leave it and see if issue 5 arrives and if not ill cancel or phone them and just arrange for local newsagent to order me them in its becoming a bloody joke.

also noticed theres a dc comics chess piece collection starting 1st piece is £2.99 with batman chess piece
