I was thinking about this with all the new covers they slap on 2nd printings.

I have an almost complete run of Amazing Spider-Man; been reading his adventures since 1982 and have worked hard to try and complete this run, but do I need those 2nd print covers to really have the complete collection?

Look, it's either this or work! :crazy:

i think i'm the only 'yes' at this point.

but i would argue that the *latest* 2nd print covers that Marvel have been doing - where they just reprint inner artwork on the front - are passable.

the Marvel Zombies ones? that's what i'm talking about. when the artwork is something especially created for a cover, and not just taken from the content.

I was thinking about the Back in Black covers by Adi Granov, etc.

Buying the same comic twice? Fuck that.

Considering I've bought the comic and HC of somethings...definitely not outside the realm of possibility. :D

i will only buy one of these if it is a particualrly awesome cover. like the dell'otto reprint of imortal iron fist #1.

i hang framed comics on my wall as art.

nah, well i figure if you're gonna get the 'whole set' of something, just stick to your guns.

hell, even a 'complete' collection of ONLY the second printings of a mini / arc is sufficient IMO.

so, a collection of ONLY the first printings, regardless of following printings, is certainly 'complete'

I really like the Granov one so I think I'll pick it up.

That's different. There you are buying something in a lasting format. Buying a comic just because it has a different cover is getting taken unless you really, really love that cover.
