We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:
|Proposed Title:||Thor 2099: The Fall of the Hammer.|
|Collecting 7 Issues:|
|Covers: (click to enlarge)|
I don't know about anyone else, but the little bit of the 2099 line I got to read, I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, at the time (1993) there was a lot of other great comic stuff going on, and my wallet would only stretch so far. One thing I had really looked forward to though was checking out the introduction of Thor 2099, in The Fall of the Hammer storyline. I've only ever found one issue of this story though (X-Men 2099 #5) and I only found that a week-and-a-half ago. I realize there isn't a high demand for 2099 anymore, but I'd love to see this story in TPB, just to read it and see what it was like.
For the cover, I'd go with Spider-Man 2099 #15, because it's the only cover with a prominent shot of Thor 2099, even if it is in silhouette. The only other cover to show him is Spider-Man 2099 #16, and he is way upstaged by Spidey's giant noggin on the cover.
By the way, the five headshot covers make one giant image, seen below:
You can also see this in my blog, Multi-Cover Images, if you would like.
10/14/12 Update: I added Spider-Man 2099 #15 awhile back, thanks to daarkanjel. I just today looked at the story arc page again, and noticed that I had forgotten 2099 Unlimited #4, which is apparently an epilogue to the story. So that beefs the TPB up to a nice 7 issues.
Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.
