Incomplete material, mediocre format.,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Nearly Complete Essential Hembeck Archives Omnibus (Paperback)Two problems (one was already mentioned).
1. Missing DC and Marvel work. Te pictures on the front led me to believe that it'd be in there.
2. I truly hate the massive softcovers, especially the black & white "Archive" ones. It's more phone book than comic book. Some of his work looked really great with the simple coloring. I'd have paid a few extra bucks for that and a hard cover.

Why would you expect color for a collection of reprints that were created in black & white for black & white publications like TBG/CBG?
And a color hardcover wouldn't cost "a few extra bucks". For comparison, the Fourth World Omnibus volumes have less than half as many pages...and cost twice as much. Adding a couple hundred more pages for the Marvel and DC material, *and* the cost of licensing material owned by two different companies, wouldn't exactly be cheap either.
