Hardcovers ... especially the signed, limited ones are the bomb.
They don't get their due though because they can't be wrapped in a piece of plastic with a number on it. Pretty sad.

My favorite hardcovers are the sweet 'Dark Knight Returns' box set. It isn't limited, but each individual issue in this format is just awesome.

They released 'Watchmen' the same way, but I prefer that story in one volume.

I love hardcovers. All of these were custom-bound. Most were for me, some I gave as gifts











Only the bottom row in the following pics are custom

@KatKomics I went through Houchen Bindery for all of mine. They do good work but things get expensive quickly the more features you add. The Fables books were about $150 each but they had to have die stamps manufactured and a bunch of custom work done. The Robocop book was pretty barebones and cost about $40, shipped priority, though media mail is available to make things cheaper.

If you love your books NM then this probably isn't for you since they basically destroy them, which is why I try to use existing trades (which have the added benefit of not having ads), common cheap books, or reprints when possible.

What about Maximum Fantastic Four?

I found it at the flea market. It reprints the original first issue of Fantastic Four in a very cool way: each individual panel is blown up to cover a full page.

Also, the dust cover is a large fold-out poster of the classic cover for #1.

For some reason I just don't have a love of hardbound comic books. If it ain't a normal comic book in a normal size, I find it hard to like. Even though I have many hardbacks, miniature comics and Treasury sized comics. I even have a hard time liking annuals and giant sized comics. Can't explain why though.

But I do make exceptions for things like Giant Sized X-Men #1 and ASM Annual #1.
