Ooh, good timing. I'm buying this book in March and April as part of my Fallen Angel Swap project. Thanks, Image.

Mark Waid's Hunter-Killer #1 Scriptbook ARROW: NOT just another scriptbook! (W) Mark Waid (Art) Marc Silvestri (Cov) Marc Silvestri
Wanna really turn that one-sentence high concept into a first full issue script? Writer Mark Waid takes you behind the curtain with his original script to the red-hot Hunter-Killer #1! See the words as they landed on the page and how it lined up with Marc Silvestri's art, with Waid's own notes on what did and didn't make the story! It's fun! It's educational! It's sugar-free! It's Comics 101, start to finish! Full color 40 pages $4.99 cardstock cover one-shot companion to ongoing series And please flip to the Dynamic Forces section of Previews for great Hunter-Killer merchandise!

I've got little interest in the series, but as an educational tool, this sounds like a can't-miss.

Rising Stars Hardcover (Collecting Rising Stars #1-#24) - SPOT ARROW: Comics' FINEST series in one great volume! (W) J. Michael Straczynski (Art) Keu Cha and Brent Anderson (C) John Starr and Brian Buccellato
Writer J. Michael Straczynski's superhero tour-de-force is collected, beginning to end, in one MASSIVE bookshelf volume. Follow the 113 superpowered "Pederson Specials" as they grow up, live, love, die, and ultimately try to save the world. One of the greatest comic series EVER is now available for your bookshelf!

Sweet merciful crap, this is a cool idea. Of course, at $70 there's no way I can afford it, but still, this is akin to getting the entire Babylon 5 run on one disc. Way to go, Image and Top Cow.
