2 ebay packages came in today. The first one was a reader copy of MTIO #1 with a couple of extras.

The other was a "splurge" for me. I've never owned a professionally bound book and the auction listing is below:

Red Hood and the Outlaws DC New 52 Custom Bound Collection
The book was bound at Herring & Robinson in Brisbane, California.

The book is bound in light gray buckram with red foil stamping and red headbands. It has Red Hood and the Outlaws down the spine with the DC logo below.

The book contains the following issues:
Red Hood and the Outlaws 1-12
Red Hood and the Outlaws 1 Red Cover 2nd Print (Cover Only)
Red Hood and the Outlaws 0
Red Hood and the Outlaws 13-15
Teen Titans 15
Red Hood and the Outlaws 16
Teen Titans 16
Red Hood and the Outlaws 17-18
DC Universe Presents 17 (Arsenal)
DC Universe Presents 18 (Starfire)
You also receive the rest of the series to complete the run:
Red Hood and the Outlaws 19-29 & Annual 1

I am really, really geeked out over this one!Dancing

You won the Red Hood and the Outlaws book? I was bidding on that as well since the seller always does a great job with his binds. I was also after his Power Girl/Huntress bind but struck out on both. You got a great price on that, enjoy!

These are great, I've been looking for a cheap copy of Action 775 for a while now. I find it humorous that the regular edition cost you more then the variant edition but both are steals at that price.

Wacky eh? I actually found the regular and variant Batman books at two different shops, hence the price difference.
