This is a TINY book and TERRIBLE idea
on 7 August 2012
First off - I am a huge 2000ad fan, which is why I'm so annoyed by this insult of a book.
I subscribed to 2000ad for years and still own all of my progs and have been steadily collecting graphic novels of favourites as well as buying up back issues. When I saw this for less than a fiver it seemed an excellent deal.
This book is really small though, stupidly so. For obvious reasons I didn't check the product dimensions, so sue me. Who looks to see how physically big a book is? At the very least you would expect a book to be presented in such a way that it's readable.
This is NOT readable.
Think about it. This was a story originally created for a larger than A4 comic. It's now being reproduced at less than the advertised 20cm x 13cm (actually smaller even), as the printing is well within the edges of the pages.
I am not a glasses-wearer but I really struggled with this. It's ridiculous. Clearly a peril of buying online is not knowing what it's actually like until you get it.
Story is great, no question, but this is a terrible product.
