Spend The Money You Saved On A $26 Spider-Verse Hardcover, On Post-It Notes

51RqPaHAWgLIt came out this week, Marvel's Spider-Verse hardcover volume collecting the whole crossover, 648 pages worth for $75 – or $56.49 on Amazon.

Though keen Bleeding Cool readers will have had the chance earlier in the year to pre-order the volume for $26.

Well, thousands of copies at that price have shipped out – including to a number of retailers I am told. And a few readers write in to say they've read the book and sold it back on Amazon for $50…

We'll keep an eye out for any more remarkably low pre-order bargains.

But there is one common complaint from those reading the book.

While the book gives a reading order to read the crossover, that order is not reflected in the book. Instead the individual titles are grouped together, rather than the Infinity Hardcover solution of preventing them in reading order. And because there are no page numbers following the actual reading order can be very hard.

Advice given on reviews is to buy some post it notes and insert them throughout the volume for the beginning of individual issues and then refer to the reading order at the beginning.
