They are sideways on a shelf if that helps, they aren't upside down though. It is my temporary shelf before transferring to my storage unit. Gordon of Gotham is on the bottom, look at the way the ribbon falls.

It's weird how that Terminator 2 video game ad will probably be forever imprinted in my brain, but I can't recall any ads from the last new comic I read.

Also binding your comics with the ads is a PRO move, they definitely add some nice nostalgia.

I bought it and didn't notice any glaring problems with it. However, i never read the source material to begin with, so i wouldnt have noticed if something was missing or out of order. My copy looks fine.

I bought a copy from Amazon a couple of weeks ago and I didn't notice anything wrong with it. I think this is the second time that book has gone under review though, so I don't know what the deal is.

Picked up Locke & Key: Keys to the Kingdom today and I am kind of disappointed in the big Eisner Award nominee sticker that is not really a sticker on the front cover and the lack of a bookmark like the previous volumes. It is a small complaint but I felt like it added a nice touch.

ABSOLUTE BATMAN: DARK VICTORY

Art and cover by TIM SALE
On sale MAY 23 • 408 pg, 8.25” x 12.5”, FC, $99.99 US
Presenting the classic tale of the Dark Knight from writer Jeph Loeb and artist Tim Sale for the first time in DC’s upscale Absolute format!
Collecting BATMAN: DARK VICTORY #0-13, this epic continues the story of THE LONG HALLOWEEN. It is early in Batman’s crimefighting career, when James Gordon, Harvey Dent, and the vigilante himself were all just beginning their roles as Gotham’s protectors.
Once a town controlled by organized crime, Gotham City suddenly finds itself being run by lawless freaks, such as Poison Ivy, Mr. Freeze, and the Joker. Witnessing his city’s dark evolution, the Dark Knight completes his transformation into the city’s greatest defender. He faces multiple threats, including the seeming return of a serial killer called Holiday. Batman’s previous investigation of Holiday’s killings revealed that more than one person was responsible for the murders. So the question remains: who is committing Holiday’s crimes this time? And how many will die before Batman learns the truth?

I thought Dark Victory was garbage. Art was like TLH (aka fine) but the story/mystery is worse than Identity Crisis. More trotting out Everyone's Favorite Character. And I read it before I was heavily into comics or knew the jokes about Loeb's writing patterns.

And for $100?

This is something like the sixth time they've printed this with slightly different contents.

OTOH, my copy is a very early soft cover (the one wit the missing text from Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow) so I may buy it anyway.

Resurrection Man and Catwoman are definite buys for me but I think if I were to get THUNDER Agents I'd buy it in Archives edition (just as soon as I wrap up The Spirit and Plastic Man).

My local store was going out of business, and they just happened to have it on the shelf. I'm 99% sure they were previously on hold for an employee who left the company right before the closing sales, because I definitely would have bought them for regular price had I seen them there before.

Totally worth it. Most of the stuff is really good short story work, with a few clunkers mixed in there. The Green Lantern back-ups (which allegedly got Kevin O'Neill banned from DCU) almost make it worth it alone.
