    Has anyone picked up - or paged through - IDW's trade paperback of Dreamwave's G1 Vol 2 War & Peace?

    I've seen one copy since it came out a couple of weeks ago, and I noticed something weird.

    The first 5 issues look like they should, but for some reason, issue 6 looks like a really bad scan. I compared it to a Dreamwave back issue, and sure enough, the IDW reprint has way less clarity.

    Has anyone else noticed this? Did I just see a fluke, for did IDW lose track of the original material for issue 6? Even if they did, I find it hard to believe that a professional publisher couldn't make a better "copy" than I could on my HP scanner.

    Anyone? Anyone?

    I'm hoping to get IDW's V.3 trade this month, I'll make sure to check it carefully for clarity. I can't help you on the Vol. 2, I have the DW version so I passed on it.

    I've thumbed through a copy of IDW's Vol. 1 trade, and it seemed fine. I'm betting this is just a problem with volume 2.

    it's good to hear volume 1 is fine. i've got it in my pull file. i already have volume 2 but that kinda stinks for those that don't already. are the extras the same in the idw trades?

    i don't remember this being offered in previews. i know i would have signed up for it. i'll have to go double check myself.
    :edit:
    i've found an old dreamwave product listing on amazon but not an idw one. this was never actually released by dreamwave. see it here:
    http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1897105118/ref=pd_sl_aw_alx-jeb-9-1_book_6472723_5/104-2528567-7930343?n=283155
    :edit#2:
    after doing a much more thorough search, it seems i am mistaken afterall. see it here:

    i do hope the cover image is different on release. that one's pretty dull.
