    ...and my email from amazon finally came. The book is in the mail, should be here Tuesday (obvious Star Trek: Generations joke deleted.)

    Now, I only have to hope that it is not "misplaced" by the helpful monkeys at my local post office.

    Man, do I wish amazon still used UPS all the time. There's nothing like two-day shipping.

    I think it may be a Top Cow thing. IIRC, there was a 'Volume 1' on one of my Midnight Nation collections, too, even though the entire collection was in the one book.

    Well there it was, both hardback and softcover sitting in the comic book store over the weekend.

    Question:

    Why is this Rising Stars Compendium called Volume 1? What are we to expect in volume 2 after getting all of the main series and spin-off comics in volume 1?

    and I received my copy of the softcover yesterday!

    But dang, that's an intimidating book if there ever was one...

    even better than that, they send you an email to let you know that they are still trying to obtain a copy of an item.

    I ordered it on February 4 with two other books. One of these two was 1-2 months delivery and the other I didn't mind if I got very late. They sent me an email on March 19 saying they were still trying to find copies of that one book and of the Compendium. Funny enough, March 23, they sent me a second email to let me know they were shipping those two books and that the Compendium remained not yet shipped.

    April 18, another email to let me know they were still trying to obtain a copy of the Compendium.

    April 27, email saying they were getting the book ready to ship.

    TODAY! 3:58pm eastern, a final email to say IT HAS SHIPPED!!!! WEEHEE!!!

    Sorry, don't want to rub it in anybody's face, just very stoked about finally getting a chance to read it. Yeah, I've never read it. I've only been into comics for a couple of years though.

    In my to read pile is also the softcover of the new edition of Midnight Nation.

    I had ordered it back a year or so ago, then cancelled it and reordered it back in February this year when talks started showing up that it would eventually ship.

    Which probably explains whi I haven't gotten any email about the Compendium (heck, the site still says "get on our list to be emailed when this is available," and I ordered the darn thing back in '07!

    The softcover ($59.99) is indeed due in store tomorrow. The hardcover ($99.99) came out last week.

    You can check out a 50 *50!?!* page preview (i.e. the first two issues) if you want a refresher. It looks like it's using one of the old trade's introductions by Neil Gaiman too if you've never seen that, you can read it there too.

    Hi FrogMan and welcome. Thanks for looking out for us.

    I'll have to see if my comics shop has this. It's been a long time since I read it.

    This thread here has been my source of information for the last couple of months so I just thought I'd share a source for the book for canadian shoppers. The book is indeed in stock.

    And the SC is set for the 29th.

    Now, here's hoping amazon gets it together.

    Yeppers -- it is set to be in stores this week!

    The softcover was updated last week to be out next week -- but that of course won't be confirmed until next week.

    Well, I'll be dipped.

    My comic store guy's "upcoming" list, posted this morning, says that the Rising Stars HC will be out on the 15th.

    FINALLY!

    I'll believe it when I hold it in my cold, dead hands.

    How's that for a quotational mashup?
