It is slightly oversized. Definitely not an Absolute Edition but bigger than a standard issue by an inch or so. The art is also full bleed making things really pop off the page. As the panel divisions are thin black lines the whole effect is more cinematic than literary. The high gloss paper and the digital colouring work in combination to give a real visual feast.
The storylines are good, striking a balance between the new reader and the rabid fanboy. The more you know about the GB lore the more you will get out of them as every page background is packed with hidden gems and easter eggs but these rarely interrupt the flow of the story.
Unusually the issues start and end aren’t marked save for a modest red number in the corner. This helps things flow like watching a DVD without the ad breaks. Between stories there are extras like technical drawings, sketches and in-character documents that would have been present in the individual issues but have been moved to more convenient points.
There are 34 pages of extras including script breakdowns, concept art, sketches and lots of covers. The series was known for an abnormally high number of variant covers. Many of these have been reproduced here either as a single page or four to a page showing the amazing creativity and wealth of styles and ideas.
It is expensive but you are getting four TPB’s and a bullet proof binding. Thumbs Up!
This hardback collection screams quality. IDW have done a lovely job with the presentation of this hardback. The raised details really add to the feel of the book.
Having the stories as the larger format makes it even more fun trying to spot the GB and general 80's nostalgia easter eggs that they drop in to this ongoing series.
For the uninitiated, this IDW series considers the two films and the recent video game as canon while the other aspects of the franchise (cartoons, comics and even toys) get referenced or gradually integrated into the IDW GB world. It's brilliant! Great writing tone to get pretty damn close to the films, superb use of the characters, spot on pace to the building stories, amazingly detailed art, vivid animation style colour work all with superb back up mini stories.
The only down side to this reprinted collection is that the cover gallery section at the back perhaps isn't as good as in the paperbacks as the covers are squeezed a few to a page where as in the paperbacks they get a (smaller sized) page all to themselves.
All other bonus art and stories seems to match the paperbacks as far as I can tell just nice to have as the larger format.
Hardcore fans NEED this in their collection.
