DC: New Frontier by Darwyn Cooke is getting an "Absolute" edition...
Amazon has it 83% off - sticker price $75, they have it for 12.99 (usd).
SERIOUSLY. I just ordered mine.

Darwyn Cooke (Batman: Ego, Selina's Big Score, etc.) did the writing and the art. It was a six-issue mini (no ads) which "introduced" the silver age.
It came out 2-3 years ago and won a ton of industry awards, but is still somehow horribly under appreciated.

It's a great book. Is that pricing for real? I usually just ignore the Absolute editions, but $13 would be impossible to pass up!

Those bastards, if they offer it to you at a cheap price they should sell it to you at that price if you've chosen to buy it.

I don't know about in America but here in England I think the Sale Of Goods Act makes it bound by the law that once you've accepted the offer that price is final.

Error is only human.
Sucks, though. But if the book is as good as you sayit is, then it will be worth the new price as well.

It's great, but I don't think any comic is $75 usd great. I've got all the issues and I'll hold there...

I have no idea. I don't have any. I do know they are complete with extra stuff (covers, scripts, interviews, etc.) and are over-sized (much bigger than standard comics)....
