Wait, I'm not sure I got that... *sarcasm* I'm really happy it was reprinted, I was luck enough to get my hands on one of the first prints, but a few friends of mine were quite upset when they weren't going to get a chance, now they've all picked up their own copies. Keeping their grubby mits off of mine.
The compendium's never going away, SDCC is doing a hardcover version for chrissakes! And nuts to the compendiums, the hardcovers and omnibus editions are the way to go! And monthly of course, because that is one nice series.
