Okay,pretty cool.How did you get the pictorial boards on the Dark Avengers?

Side note.There was a bound volume of Eclipse Monthly on ebay a couple weeks back that went for less than $20 total.Though about bidding but I was right in the middle of my Golden Age kick.

Hi, Toz. Thankyou! Well, I'm in the U.K. and half-binds aren't really the "done thing" in our (very few) binderys, but for the past few months I've been looking in envy at what LBC were producing for you guys, so I asked the bindery that I use over here to come up with a process to provide something close. They passed with flying colours Applause

I source the artwork and get creative with it and send the artwork in with my order.

Hehehe .. Cheers, Fenix1977! I sourced the artwork, messed with it, and sent it to the bindery with my order. I designed both the Avengers logo and Cap's shield, which my bindery both had made up, and they stamp it on whatever volume I want.

Feel free to click my banner and that will show you more pics of stuff that I've had done Big Grin

Hey - is Library Binding going out of business? I've been on their site this morning and a note says they have sold their business and all orders received after May 21 will be shipped to Houchen Bindery for completion. The web address for Houchen Bindery does not work.
Any help?
Any other binders out there that do credible work?

I'm resurrecting this thread because I am considering doing this for some of my favorite comic runs that I know will never see the light of day, and have no real monetary worth per sé, in a TPB or hardbound edition, i.e.:

Robotoech - The Next Generation
Nexus
Elfquest
John Carter - Warlord of Mars
Kazar
Kull
EC Collectibles from the 80s (oversized and gorgeous)
some scattered Valiant books


and the pièce de résistance, my collection of Carl Barks Disney books (Uncle Scrooge) from the 1950s. I snagged the whole lot for $25 without the covers... a good candidate for this process since without the covers they will not appreciate much over time. Seasoned collectors will appreciate the merits of this set, for others who are curious these are tough to find.

It's been a while since this post was launched, so I was wondering if other binding firms have cropped up since? The only one I can recall is this:

http://www.houchenbindery.com/

but if there are others please inform me. Price is no object, and other input is welcome. If I thought the final product is as good as what I'm seeing in these pictures, then I'm sold.

My thoughts exactly. The idea is to pick favorite issues that will never go up in value (much) and keep them together for posterity.

Another candidate I thought of... Michael Golden's 'Nam. These will never be reprinted in hardcover, and what a story.

Marvel tales has reprinted every apperance of the first Green Goblin up until his first death in issue 122 and you can pick them all up for a fraction of the cost compared to tracking down the orig Amazing Spiderman issues
They also reprinted the first app of the second Green Goblin [Harry]

The Nam would be a nice volume, don't remember if it was the Nam or Stemper Fi that did a Frank Castle story pre Punisher

I would like to suggest Comico's JONNY QUEST comic series. Beautiful artwork and really good stories...just little value. Man, I'll bet a binded edition would look incredible.

Was thinking the same thing, actually. Unfortunately, I only have sparing issues of the title. I was more into the Robotech series, which I have a complete run.

Comico was one of the stalwarts, like First and Eclipse back in the day. Man, how I miss those publishers.

I have the first 10 of the JONNY QUEST and I have a few of the last issues of the ROBOTECH series, which was also really good.

Here's my question: can you do something like bind the ROBOTECH graphic novel (which is on larger stock and different paper) with the comic books for a more complete binded edition?

You CAN do something like this, but the formats you define come in different sizes... which means they would have to crop the books. Something about this idea chafes me, so I probably will not pursue this. But since the Comico run is on Baxter paper, and the graphic novel is on heavy stock, the pulp similarities are probably strong enough that these pages can be sewn together.

But I will have to ask, and I will... I'm going to contact them as soon as I corral all the books I've listed from my collection and will return with an update.
