    I recently got one that was glued together because the printer assembled it wet. I turned it back in to my local comic store and traded it in for another tpb. I still wanted the escalation trade, so I went to the mall to pick up the trade from the bookstore. In 2 stores all the escalation TPB's were glued together. Is this a common problem?

    They must have had a bad run. I have the singles so I didnt get the trade.

    I had a few pages that stuck together, but were easily.. VERY easily taken apart with minimal damage. (A little whitening on the edges of the paper.)

    I bought both the Escalation TPB and Spotlight TPB from Amazon and didn't have that problem with either of them.

    I don't buy trades. Just the individual issues...don't have the patience to wait for the trade.

    Saw it in Trilogy Comics (Norfolk, VA) and every single copy of the trade was sticky like that. However, just bending the pages and flipping through them with my thumb un-stuck them. I didn't notice if any were sticking together.

    I didn't buy a copy, though, because I already had all the issues.
