I LOVE it.  Best quote ever.  "the world is a BIG place" let's face it this book is not for everybody.

I totally agree...that it is the Rolls Royce of books.

wondering how many unseen pics of the original group there are,...my guess is very few if any,.

They are Jeff  Campbell....before there was Jeff.

some ass who keeps reprinting the same stuff over...he uses different packaging and sizes to dupe his fans into dumping more and more money into his swag.

I hear he's making the custom "Campbell Coffin, and Campbell Condoms." next...(all re-colored though...so it's like brand new)

@Boyinblack
I thought he married that Slave Leia chick. He's gotta lock her down. There are always plenty of Lando's out there to swoop in.

@Mac
I heard about the book. I just didn't know it was 3 feet tall.

not a big fan of books that large...it's a neat gimmick but if I am going to drop over 1K on a book...I don't want something I am going to damage looking at or storing...which will happen to a lot of these.

This book is meant to be read to you kid when you tuck her in at night. Try balancing that on your leg.

the size is ridiculous....you saw that comic I have...it's like the same size....it's just too large.....it's going to get ruined....unless you have a drafting table...and even then you can't really enjoy an image that big in front of you sitting and flipping through it.

I really don't think it's meant to be read. Gene even said this is just the first version of it. The initial run is just 1,000 and at 4200 bucks, it's strictly meant for collectors. There will be a regular size edition which is what I will end up getting anyway. But I will be watching eBay to see who buys it and then tries to make a "profit" on it after the fact. I'm sure they will end up fetching around 20K and higher.

not sure it would get up to 20K....there's a very rare Jimmy Page book and I think it's up to maybe 2K...maybe more....but 20K is a lot even though it's coming out of the gate at $4K+

they might have top ended that book from the starting gate...only time would tell...but I don't know of many books of that nature that sell for more.

also....we don't know the quality of the build itself....if past history or "kisstory" would show....they don't use the best producers for these books.

they just like to charge top dollar and **** their fans.

that has been proven.

I doubt that has changed sadly.....

The first thing I thought of when I heard about the Monster book was if it was going to be put together on a  s h i t t y  level like that of the first run of the KISSTORY books. Fans are taking a HUGE  g a m b l e  in buying this, sight unseen. It wouldn't shock me (pun intended) if the book started cracking and pages were to come loose as soon as the book arrived. It wouldn't shock me (pun not intended) if there was no Return Policy for this either.

big books also warp....the size makes them basically collapse in on themselves...so the covers will start to arch and as you said...then the binding can go.

it almost needs it's own support system (seriously)

so yeah I'd agree.....after a few weeks things can go seriously wrong...and I would pretty much guarantee there's no return once it's open.

that book I am sure was expensive to make....but that still doesn't mean it's a high quality book.

I can pretty much guarantee the Page book was made better...because it's a boutique shop that put it together in England.

I'd pretty much bet the KISS book was put together in Asia...
