After more thoughtful consideration, i have decided to remove one star for the omission of the one-shots. I don't care too much for extra features, but i have now decided that i agree with the detractors, that the one shots wouldn't have been too much to ask. Regarding the page count: The Absolute Sandman books were around 20 issues each, and neither felt too cumbersome and still maintained the same price tag. And since these books are printed in China, i refuse to believe that it would be too costly for DC to include the one-shots and NOT make a massive profit. I'm still happy with my purchase: Absolute Editions give me more long-term enjoyment than any video games or Heroclix i collect, but I must concede that DC seems to be going cheap to pinch pennies.
Don't get me wrong, I love having the awesome over sized book with vol 1 & 2 together but when the first word is Absolute, I expect to get everything SCW in one book.
Still highly recommend this book (especially over TPB's).
is one of you favorite GL stories! Other reviewers on this side have shown both video and a detailed content list so all I can say is: If you can afford it, get it! This is my first Absolute edition ever and it didn't disappoint.
About the missing one-shots! We all knew the contents of the book way before the release so we can't say we were fooled. Though the exclusion of the one-shots is a sad thing,and drops this edition from perfect to pretty darn great,this is still a masterpiece on its own. There is great deal of extras in the book compared to the TPB,sketches,scripts, tales of the Sinestro corps and a lot more. The production value of the book is superb,from the quality and presentation to the book binding. A+
SCW is one of the best, if not the best Green Lantern story ever. Collectors probably already have this edition on their shelfs. Its Christmas soon... Treat yourself to something nice!
