    I know IDW started to reprint DW's Generation series in 2006. Now IDW's reprinted Volume 1 is rather easy to come by. However the reprinted Volume 2: War and Peace is not only extreamly difficult to find, but costs a fortune. Two sellers on Amazon are trying to sell it for $999.00.

    I know it is out of print, but only by one or two years. My brother-in-law had an easer time finding a 30 year old book about running!

    Does anybody know why this is the case, and where I might be able to find IDW's for a reasonable price?

    Amazon marketplace has sellers that sell out of print books for dumbass amounts of money. Frankly, I think they're on crack and should have the shit kicked out of them, but thats just me.

    I saw the book at books a million a few weeks back. Those prices are crazy kinda like the prices the orginal Dreamwave more than meets the eye tps. Those sellers are douche knights.

    Heh. I remember trying to find DW's War Within (vol.1) tpb. about a year or so after its release... idiots on Amazon.com were tying the same thing. I think the lowest price was something like $599... pathetic. I wound up buying it off of another poster here (can't ecall who, though) for cover price.

    As for the War & Peace tpb, though... if you're nt deadset on it being the IDW reprint, I have the original DW release you can have for cover price plus a couple bucks for shipping...
