    Found this while searching Walmart.com to see if they had listings for any new X-Men: Evolution DVDs. Does anyone know anything about this Spotlight Productions "Library Binding" thing? It costs over $50, so it's gotta be at least somewhat impressive. I checked and they've also got several more of those "Library Binding" things for other comic properties, like Spider-Girl and the Incredible Hulk, and for some book properties like the Hardy Boys. I am at a total loss as to what this is, and as an X-Men: Evo fanatic, I'm DYING to find out...

    It could be a hard cover trade of the X-Men evolution comics.

    It's probably a reprint of all the Evo comics. Library binding is a more durable hardcover with reinforced binding. It's a more expensive edition than trades or regular hardcover.

    Requirements for Library binding: Stitched signatures, sewn-on four-cord thread, strong endpapers, and backlining extended into the boards.

    $50 still seems an awful lot for 9 comic issues in hardcover (Are there also Hardy Boys comics? Because they're under a similar listing by the same company, and I've never heard of those), but I guess we'll see... I mean, I don't question that it's a hardcover book, it's what it CONTAINS that I'm interested in...
