WTB: Complete set of Amalgam, DC vs Marvel, All Access, Unlimited Access13966

COLLECTOR dielinfinite private msg quote post Address this user
Hey guys, I’ve got a craving for a new custom binding project and I’ve settled on collecting the DC vs Marvel/Amalgam Comics event since I don’t see Marvel or DC releasing their own omnibus anytime soon. I’ve purchased most of the trades but they seem to be a bit expensive and I’m not too keen on tearing them up for this project so I thought I’d go for the original issues.

There is an auction for a full run of Amalgam comics but I thought I’d check in on the boards first in case anyone here could help.

I’m currently looking for:

DC Vs Marvel Preview
DC vs Marvel 1-4

@Lonestar Thanks so much for the offer! I replied to your DM

@Joosh I’ve done a few custom binds in the past. Some were customized collections as gifts, some were completing runs in hardcover, and some were basically custom omnibuses

Oh! I wasn’t aware that DC and Marvel had a couple of follow-up mini-series that I’m going to include as well:

DC/Marvel: All-Access #1-#4





Unlimited Access #1-#4

do you bind the books yourself or do you send them to someone to do this?

I would love to go and get a number of old "not worth slabbing/protecting" books for some of the Silver age comics and do this.

I mean the huge omnibuses that Marvel puts out are nice....but mostly oversized (can't fit on a book shelf) and cost like 90-180 dollars depending on the series and length.

unless you go for the paperback mini-buses which I hate.

I'd love to be able to collect like you are and then put them in a nice hard copy. (the covers look like scans right?)

I’ve gone to Houchen Bindery to bind my books. They have a good set of options and the price isn’t bad. They changed their pricing, implemented minimum orders, and guy that handled comic binding has left since I did my last book so hopefully the quality and service is still good.

The covers are mostly processed scans though I’ve done sone design work and layouts on some of them. Houchen does offer some design options if you’re so inclined but I haven’t used them.

I love oversized books like omnibuses or absolute editions but there is a lot of material that probably isn’t popular enough or is too popular to be collected with similar works. Marvel vs DC/Amalgam/Access just seems like a big hurdle to see collected again in its entirety, so it seems like a good project. I’ve often thought of buying lots of coverless comics and binding them.

I’m now adding Green Lantern/Silver Surfer: Unholy Alliances to my WTB list as it serves as a lead-in to the Marvel Versus DC crossover

I got the 24 Amalgam issues in the mail today so I’m about halfway through my list!
