Just dropping a line in case anyone from IDW might be paying attention.

Our household has really gone off their comics, not on the basis of the quality of the content but because we have been very disappointed in the quality of the printed editions. ( Printed copies are much better for sharing in a household.)

Our kids (now teens) have a large collection of comic omnibus editions and graphic novels. IDW’s remain the only ones with pages falling out before the third person has read them. The overly shiny paper is a negative also.

I keep thinking that any number of these new stories would be interesting, but just can’t justify the purchase until I hear that the quality control is addressed.

Huh? I have collected every single Star Trek comic IDW has published and I’ve read each one several times. Not once has the quality ever been an issue. Pages falling out? I don’t understand how that is possible, given how the staples go across two-page spreads.

TG47 appears to be talking about the collected editions not the single issues. Typically trade paperbacks are bound not stapled.

Ah, I see. Thanks for the clarification. Since I’ve never bought any of the TPBs, that hadn’t occurred to me.

I’m referring to the omnibus editions.

Our kids haven’t ever had much patience for cliffhangers, so we wait and buy the sets.

Unfortunately, calling the IDW versions “bound” like genuine trade paperbacks would be generous. They seem to be lightly glued together. Otherwise, I don’t understand how the pages could just fall out individually and in clumps that then separate into individual pages.

The first time it happened to one of our kids, they were stunned and apologetic because they are generally careful with books, moreso than I am actually. By the third time, it was very clear that the fault was with the publisher.

It isn’t just IDW Marvel is also hit or miss on trades for Star Wars. and IDW has done good and bad omnibus editions of classic newspaper comics.

Can we get Bob Orcis Trek 3 five issues thanks

I second that request.
