There isn't a day that goes by that I'm not thankful that switching to 99% digital has alleviated the nightmare that was graphic novel spines from my life.


Now its just hard drive folder organization that is the bane of my existence!

I order things by continent < country < publicant < chronological order of first appearence.
Excellent work. Out of interest, is it country of origin of the publisher or the character? Depending on your answer, where would you file A: Alpha Flight, B: Captain Britain, C: Marvel UK, D: Different volumes of Requiem published by Heavy Metal (which you had to order from us amazon) and Panini?
Excellent points, though I personally don't own any Alpha Flight can explain the others.
Though this might sound controversial, I keep my Marvel Uk material (the Claremont, Frierich and Moore Captain Britain material, Deaths Head and Dragons Claws) along side my UK material, specificaly next to the Panini Doctor Who Magazine reprints.

Requim is an oddity, though I only own the first volume so far, being a "Franco-British" comic it's right at the very end of my UK material next to the likes of Marshal Law and The Best of Milligan and McCarthy amongst other oddities that have a distinctively 'English' feel to them even if more than half of the content was produced outside of the UK.

I'm still wrestling unsuccessfully with my phone to get a picture uploaded of my latest horror - I bought vols 1-3 of Superior Spiderman off Amazon - they are slim with white spines. I later went back to buy vols 3-6 - they are much thicker with the black-and-red format spines.

I think there are two versions of the Superior Spiderman trades (ignoring the hardbacks).  Don't now why they have done this, but perhaps you have mixed the two types?

...the nightmare that was graphic novel spines from my life.

It ain't spines that're your problem - it's backbone.

s'right, sorting out the bookshelf spines is one of life's little joys
But everybody else is overwhelmed by indifference and the promise of an early bed

As amazing as the series is, and it is, having three spines then a sudden change is painful!

This thread, man. So many tears.  :'(

By the way, will all the volumes of Nikolai Dante be getting these reprints? Know that the next two books, the Tsar Wars, are out of print, but I don't believe I've seen it mentioned anywhere what'll happen to the rest.

More important question, are the historical quotes still intact in the new editions of The Great Game and Love and War?

I think it will depend on numbers. If they sell well I assume (and hope) so.

I am missing the spines thread.

Here is something to cause controversy



Bloody hell.  Why isn't volume 11 over on the left with all the other red ones?

You're supposed to distribute the red ones between the colourful ones!  ;)
