When the second Geoff John’s Flash Omnibus came out it was going to be an instant purchase, then I saw the size of the book. I wasn’t sure it was going to be something that was comfortable to read. This new Sin City book is over 1,000 pages. I can’t imagine ever picking that up on a whim and reading it. It’s quite possible I’m wrong here. I don’t want to sound like a crotchety old man screaming about the kids on his lawn here. Am I alone here? Can collected comic editions get too big?
As a side note I’m not talking about those beautiful, oversized artist editions. Those are big for a reason and I totally understand that.
