    I bought most of the Devils Due issues of G.I.Joe vs. Transformers except issues 2-4 of the 2nd volume.

    While looking around on the interwebz, all I can find is a hardcover omnibus version of all four versions for no less than $100. I added together the amount each issue cost individually and it comes to $55.25. How can being Hard Cover DOUBLE the price?

    And why didn't Devils Due release each volume indivually in TPB form?

    The reason for the price is they only printed it for a limited amount of time, and people know that it's a wanted piece. If you really want to be blown away by overpricing, go check the price for the first Ares TPB.

    Also, the last part of the crossover was only two issues long so I would think it doesn't make sense to collect that one by itself. The first three are collected at least.

    I'll check when I get to work tomorrow to see if I can still order it, but that might be a longshot. Never know.

    Wait, DD did a G.I.Joe vs The Transformers 4? I thought it stopped after 3 when they used Cobra-La and Unicron?

    Cobra-La and Unicron where part of Volume 4 "Black Horizon"

    Volume 3 "The Art of War" was about the creation of Serpentor.

    Simple answer is that Amazon marketplace is over-priced as sellers think they're sitting on pulp gold.
