Excellent. I've been saying since they started these reprints that I hoped they'd publish some of the work in colour. I'm a big fan of black and white reprints, especially if they're made from quality reproduction sources, but there are a few Lulu stories where the colour of certain objects is central to the plot, and those are just distracting in the black and white reprints. Plus, $14 is a great price for 200 pages in colour, especially if that trim size (7x10, as opposed to the slightly more compact 6x9 of the regular books) is correct.

I do have to wonder, though, for this and the GREMLINS book, September release in the May solicitations? First the standard two month lead time for solicitations isn't good enough for Dark Horse so they go to three (and DC just followed) now they seem to be going to four months?
