This book is the one I mentioned in my 'Comics and Collectibles!' entry yesterday, and earlier today.  I am super happy that this worked out!  It was over two years in the making but I am thrilled to now have this book in my collection!  Instead of repeating myself here, please check out the entire story in the book's description in my set...

My brother took this picture and I will add plenty more once I receive the book from him safe and sound (knock on wood).  I intended on waiting to receive the book before adding this entry but am far too excited :cloud9:

Here’s the art that the owner threw in… again, will post better pics when I receive these…

Way to go! Your persistence has paid off, congratulations!

Thank you!  There were definitely some tense moments while I was trying to get this book.

Honestly, up until the moment my brother called and said how well everything went, I was still on the fence as to whether it was going to happen at all. That was probably just me worrying because I wanted this book so badly.

I’m happy that my brother said the owner was very cool and nice!  He messaged me later and said he was really happy with the book I gave him, and that makes me feel good too!

Overall, a great deal IMO… now I just have to stress until my brother gets it shipped and I have it hand to take my own pics, etc.  Soon!

Almost forgot the art the previous owner threw in. Haven’t been able to determine the artist. He told my brother but he doesn’t recall the name and I don’t want to look dumb asking!

Yeah, the jury is still out for me on this...

I went from hating it due to that Doomsday pin-up with the horns to just sort of a whatever feeling.  I think for me the story was 'over' with Hunter Prey.

The real problem I have with this project is really with DC overall though.  I'm not a 'Super Sons' fan and am even less of a 'Son of Kal El' fan.  It irritates me to no end that they used Superman's kid as a vehicle to push the SJWS agenda.  Telling at least part of this story from the perspective of a young 'Son of Kal El' Jon Kent just doesn't appeal to me.

I'm also not super cool with all the 1:25, 1:50, 1:100 variant covers.  I am starting to see these as just a way to get people to buy more of a bad story.  I won't rush out to get them... maybe I'll wait to see what they look like and once the hype is over maybe pick up CGC 9.8 copies when they drop.

What I really wanted to see was just a re-release of the Omnibus materials but in a huge original art size format... imagine that bad boy weighing in at like 50 lbs!  Also some limited numbered signed copies!!  Some more of the concept art would have been great too.

I guess there's always the 50th!

I think that this story was so well done that they should leave it alone... I can't think of ANYTHING they have done with Doomsday after Hunter Prey that made the Doomsday character/story better, and I'm afraid that the more they revisit/add to it now with today's DC leadership they will just ruin it.

It’s too bad Bill Burr isn’t a comic book fan, I know he’d have a hilarious take on all of this.

Maybe it would go something like this. hm

Hey, did ya know Stan Lee co-created all those characters?! Yeah, he couldn’t remember that until die hard fans called him on it in the 70s. This was when comic cons were small setups in some gymnasium in upstate New York or something, with a small group of dorks who didn’t have the internet. They had to type out newsletters and mail them to a select niche group to communicate about comic books. Now, I’m not saying Stan’s a bad guy, he did end up acknowledging his co-creators. He’d also sign anything you’d put in front of him. For a fee of course. Let’s not forget all those cameos. But how many nerds dressed up at comic con today know who Jack Kirby is?! Or any of those hot models walking around in Spider-Man lingerie, selling pictures of themselves, you think any of them know who Steve Ditko is? Probably not! They’d be like, ‘I’ve seen every Marvel movie and series, man!’

Now DC and Marvel are woke, doing their virtue signaling, all in the name of Social Justice. Speaking of, any one here know who Bill Finger is? He created all the good parts about Batman! For decades DC only acknowledged Bob Kane as the creator of Batman. Bob Kane was a struggling artist in the 1930s, he came up with a basic concept for Batman but couldn’t write or draw worth a $#I*! So Kane partners with Bill Finger, who takes Kane’s so so idea, and makes it better. Then Kane took all the credit, threw Finger under the bus and started dressing like Vincent Price! Finger died in destitution. A few years back some dork made a documentary about it, found a relative of Finger’s and got them a decent pay day, at the ire of DC! And DC’s still pissed about having to pay up. How woke is that?!

I'm not Bill Burr, or a comedian. Just a dork with some time on his hands. 9_9
