    That is the point, yes. They just fail at it completely. TFWiki even has a section dedicated to how bad Phase One is on each volume's article, and partway through Phase Two they gave up doing it because it just kept getting worse.

    I guess we just figured Revolution and everything after was just the second half of phase 2

    =)

    as much as I
    A) like the UK classics
    B) Am not a fan of the IDW “shared universe”

    I can recognize the demand for the former is likely outstripped by the latter (to say nothing of the costs likely being lower to produce the latter as well).

    Yeah, there's no comparison to be made. The IDW Collection hardcovers just take a bunch of existing comics IDW already has digital masters for, and plonk them into a hardcover.

    The Classics UK books involved lots of new scanning of material and stacks of new commentary which needed writing, editing and laying out.

    I find it odd all the shared universe stuff has been delisted from comixology but now this collection is coming out there digitally too. Anyone know why they were delisted? I know they weren't the best comics but we lost a MTMTE and RID one shot there.
