TCC Magazine TPB #1 up for preorder

[Links are hidden for guests. Please Register.]

So it looks like the TCC's collecting their magazine in TPB form now - they've put up the 2005 issues (1-6) for preorder in a 100 page TPB.

Reading their listing though, it looks like this isn't just a reprinting of the "Balancing Act" trade from a few years back.... that TPB was the first TWO years of the COMIC.

Going off the page count here, it looks like they're collecting the magazine itself in a TPB, not just the comic pages.

(To editorialize, this strikes me as a "why?" given the only thing I've ever really cared about in their magazine is the fiction. Reprinting the filler content just hurts the ability to read the comic as a continuous story, which worked well in the "Balancing Act" trade.)

EDIT: Eh, that was a bit unnecessary.

Is there anything special about it, outside of some new cover art?

Kind of a letdown. >.>

Seriously? So I can read old ass articles about upcoming toys from 2005? I'm sorry, but that's fucking stupid. All I want is the comic collected in a trade, like Balancing Act. If this was that, I'd be excited.

Doesn't look like it, reading their listing. Heck - for those out there who are interested in the comics alone, it's actually WORSE than Balancing Act as a whole since it reprints less of those.

If the club just straight-up reprints the magazine issues without, say, splicing all the comics together into one cohesive whole, it'll do nothing but take one out of the story when you finish the chapter. Balancing Act reads pretty well as an uninterrupted whole and it's easy to forget it was serialized.

EDIT: It was just pointed out to me that this DOES mean we'll get the character bios reprinted; those weren't in the original Balancing Act trade. If this trade was just comics + bios laid out in that order, I'd probably be more tempted to order it. Interviews and features that are now 7 years old are of no use to to me.
