Default Green Lantern: Custom Bound Editions!

I tried searching but I didn't see a thread for this yet.
Here are 3 volumes of my custom bound editions of Green Lantern, Ion and Green Lantern Corps.

They accidentally misspelled Sinestro as Sinistro but it's only one letter no biggie.







They were done by Library Binding Company in Waco Texas.
Here is a link to a binding forum if anyone is interested in getting their own comics bound...I've got 2 more volumes on their way back. I'll post pictures once I get them.

Oh and Ethan Van Sciver did a John Stewart sketch in the back of one of one of my binds.

Cool stuff Corwin thanks for posting this link. I see some people had regular comics bound; do you know if they bind the actually issues with the newsprint paper or scan them and use glossy paper?

That's cool. I would probably do something like this for the shorter series that I enjoy but not enough to pick up the hardcover.

That's pretty awesome. You know, I had this business idea but I doubt it would be possible because of having to secure the appropriate trademarks and licenses to do it. It was to do a POD comic service with licenses from DC and Marvel, where if you wanted to get back issues of an old series (like the Rayner GL run) but want the ones that weren't covered in existing trades, it would print out the trade for you.

It's one of those things where I'm not sure if it would be possible, due to the fact you would need to get Warner or Marvel's licenses to do it.

I wonder if they get Branch Davidians to bind them.

Oh yeah, they can bind almost anything. As long as the paper isn't brittle and falls apart if you bend it. I have some early nineties comics bound (X-Force, Deadpool's first ongoing series) and it works out great. You can scan and print if you want it's all the same...actually the newsprint books are a lot lighter.

It works out a lot better because you fit 20-30 issues (anything less than 2 inches) in a bind.

I know that I'd never sell most of my comics so I bind them...(just wait until I start binding my Uncanny (139-present) and X-Men run...I mainly do it because I'm more likely to pull them off a shelf than out of a long box with bag and boards. It's just much easier access and of course you can arrange the books in any order you want...I've got a Green Lanterns: Fall from Grace and Green Lanterns: Death and Rebirth coming. They have all the big crossovers like Zero Hour, Final Night, Day of Judgment...I can't until Tuesday when they arrive.

As cool as that is, I look forward to the day where my Grant Morrison Batman hardcovers are side by side. Since I'm collecting in issues, I may eventually do the same as you, that is if DC isn't nice enough to collect them all together beforehand.

They really let me down with the collection of Final Crisis. The two Batman issues should of been included that collection. I also included the Batman annual 26 (origin of Ras) and the Detective issues 840 and 842. I've never read any of these issues so I'm having a blast. The two Final Crisis issues are in that collection.

They don't scan and print but they can bind just about anything you send them. I don't know how well it would sell.

Ok, I have to bring this topic closer to the top of the board. Having seen this I am pissed that I sell my floppies in story arcs after I get the trade. I mean I could have the whole GLC run in a HC, instead of a bunch of SCs. Now I am planning on getting some Parallax Issues, non-HC issues, (Emerald Fallout, Zero Hour w/ GL tie-ins, Parallax View, Final Night w/ GL tie-ins) and If I like the way that on comes out. Maybe an Ion Bind (Rann Than InC issues, One-Shot and 12 issue maxi. Now if I could only get my hands on some decent Infinities (Gauntlet, War, Abyss, Crusade-I have the TPBS and most are signed by Starlin), those would make some SICK BINDS!!! I mean so much of those stories are lost to single issues with only the main points being in the trades.
Oh one last notes, have you tried to have prestige formats bound? I don't it would work right, but the thought of a GL Elseworld bind is intriguing...

I know how you feel. I let go of a lot of comics for the collected editions before finding out about binding. But fear not it's never too late. It just may take some time.

LOL dude. The beautiful part is anyone can do this. It's only $15.00 for the basic bind. (There is a minimum requirement of $30.00 but then add shipping to that and you're set.)
