    My thoughts on the set. I know that the slipcase sizing was an error, but I am happy that it happened as I prefer the books to be shelved with Brodart. Having a different cover artist for watch book in the set concerned me. I thought that they may look good individually but then not have the continuity of a set. Fortunately, the artists all have a similar comic style, and they look great together. When CD announced that they had added interior art to each volume I just assumed that the art would be from the cover artists. Turns out it was a different artist, and the interior art added another level of continuity with the books. The use of the weather radar image throughout, especially with the slight variations on the chapter breaks was simply brilliant. I absolutely love this set!

    Joe Hill's Strange Weather from Cemetery Dance.
    I actually have not seen alot of photos of this one so I will warn you that I am going a little overboard.

    The incorrect fit of the slipcases has been mentioned elsewhere on the board. I actually like the fact that I was able to add Brodart to all four books.

    All four books have the same bright red end papers:

    Not a perfect fit but much better than paying for custom cases.

    I do as well. I actually need to order a couple more slipcases.

    That edition is next level. Before opening the box, I spotted the fin on the packaging take. From there on it just got better!

    I love the bookmarks and greatly prefer them to sewn in ribbon bookmarks.

    Thanks! I skipped several Suntup numbered editions for a long while. With so many publishers reducing the number of books they are putting out I have routed those dollars into Suntup. I have never been unable to get a book I really wanted, 2021 was they first year I bought every numbered they offered. I always feel like I get value for the money I spend with Suntup. I will say that a couple of the Artist editions have been printed on bright white paper. I am hoping it was a supply issue and not a trend.
