This book reprints:

- Fear Agent #1 to 11 (originally published by Image Comics)
- Fear Agent: The Last Goodbye #1 to 4 (published by Dark Horse, these four issues are #12 to 15 of the series)
- Tales Of The Fear Agent: Twelve Steps In One (by Dark Horse, this one-shot is #16 of the series)
- Fear Agent: Nothing To Fear (originally included in MySpace Dark Horse Presents #3 and 4)

NOTE: The book says it includes #1 to 15 of Fear Agent, but it indeed packs more material than solicited!

Rest assured, all the "Tales Of The Fear Agent" back-ups from the original single issues up to #16 are included in this volume.

All of that is the equivalent of the first three TPBs of the Fear Agent series collected in this huge book: "Re-Ignition", "My War" and "The Last Goodbye".

I'm going to focus my review specifically on the edition of this volume. For a detailed insight of the story and art of Fear Agent you can find a lot of helpful reviews right here on Amazon, just by searching those three TPB editions I mentioned before.

This Library edition is simply gorgeous and it features:

- Huge over-sized format: 12,4 x 8,25 inches, the same as DC's Absolute releases (but without the slipcase)
- Sewn binding: the book lays flat on the table and you can read it comfortably with no gutter-loss at all, so you can fully appreciate the art.
- Gorgeous, very heavy-weight, glossy paper stock (the same kind of paper stock you find in expensive art-books).
- Outstanding printing quality, featuring vibrant colors, rich blacks and really sharp line-art reproduction.

Format: Hardcover
Fear Agent is a throwback to the classic days of sci-fi, the adventure stories and pulp magazines that have been replaced with weird plots and overly complex storylines. Remender, one of the best writers in the industry today, wanted to reclaim that lost magic and with some help, he did. The result is a comic that entertains you, doesn't seem overly complex but at the same time it doesn't insult your intelligence or speak down to you. It is a fun comic that you can't help but enjoy.

The stories within contain true magic. Most of the stories have been reviewed already so I will focus on this edition and what it brings.

The collection is gorgeously oversized, with the art looking like it was touched up and colour altered a bit to make everything cleaner and stand out more. The binding is stiff but there is no gutter loss in the pages. Like most Dark Horse hardcovers the book is built to last and should for a long time. The bonus content includes many pages of sketches, character designs and more, as well as a full page cover gallery.

A side note, this is not 440 pages as stated on amazon, but well over 500.

This is very much worth getting.

First I'll start by saying I own all six volumes of the soft cover GNs. When I heard this was coming out I was hyped because I LOVE hard cover omnibus editions.

This book is BEAUTIFUL! Its better than 95%+ of all other hard cover editions that are on the market today. The price for this book is a straight steal! Dont know how they managed to produce this beautiful volume and make it available for so cheap... I wish other publishers would follow suit.

Buy this book before it's sold out.. it wont be long!

No words can describe this books, one of my all time favorite series collected into a massive hardcover collection. This collects the first half of Fear Agent with blown up beautiful art. Any comic fan should purchase this book!

This is an Awesome Pulp Space Opera. It is beautifully hard bound. Excellent art and action packed. Heath Houston always gets his break in this gripping story. Enjoy.

I have to agree with the reviewer below, something I've griped about and raved about in equal measure: why can't DC take a lesson or two from Dark Horse when it comes to publishing books, in particular Deluxe hardcovers? Comparing the 100 Bullets Deluxe Editions released by DC and the Fear Agent Deluxe Editions by Dark Horse (or the Criminal hardcovers by Icon, or the Fatale hardcover by Image), it's quickly evident that the Fear Agent books are superior in every aspect of production; better covers, better paper stock, a little bit longer on average, 9" x 12" instead of 8" x 11" format, an MSRP of $55.00 instead of the DC pricetag of $59.00. This comparison ends there, since both titles are already classics in two very different genre's. If only both titles were published by Dark Horse. For the $35 Amazon is asking, you can pick up both volumes for $70 and own the entire run of one of the best SF comics ever, in a beautiful package that looks very nice on the bookshelf. Try and track down all 7 of the much smaller trade paperback's in an Indigo/Chapters (the bricks-and-mortar variety), and you'll be paying $150. Enough with the money. Fear Agent has had a very vocal and incredibly loyal fanbase for years now, because it does what only a few books have been able to do -- The Sandman, Sin City, Black Hole, Eightball, Hellboy, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, The Walking Dead, Saga -- give the reader the story they'd been waiting for, even if they didn't know they'd been waiting for it. Fear Agent is Remender at his best, loaded with great ideas, the plot crashing forward at a crazy speed, slamming the reader in the guts with shockingly unpredictable turns of fate. Where a large percentage of science fiction suffers from a lack of character development, Remender excels at it.Read more ›
