    Buying it for a friend would be more likely. I'm sure that 90% of the people who post here already own 1-2 copies of Killing Joke already.
    Nice find. Glad they didn't change the cover, it's a classic.

    You need to. Excellent book. I wanted to get a copy of TKJ for my little brother for Christmas, but I couldn't find one for less than $40. So I'm getting him a copy of this HC. I want him to read it before he sees TDK.

    I dunno. Never ordered from B&N. I've always been able to rely on Amazon for pre-orders, though. Haven't let me down yet.

    Jesus I've been looking for a copy of this in this price range for a long time. I gotta get me a copy of this before TDK hits. Not becuase it's a pre req for seeing the movie obviously , It's just a personal want.

    Man, I must be lucky than some. I got my own TKJ in it original print not too long ago. Probably around Sept. or Oct. of 2007. And I got it for a good price at $5. The book is in good condition & show no sign of any use thankfully. :joker::up:

    Don't know. Perhaps you should speak with someone at B&N regarding this. See if they will be able to fulfill all of their pre-orders, and if not, tell them you would like a refund so that you may purchase the book from another outlet. That's my advice, anyway.

    Sometimes they take too many pre-orders and do not receive enough copies to fulfill their obligations. Maybe they take too many pre-orders through negligence, or the publisher doesn't send them enough copies, etc. It happens.

    I've pre-ordered a video game at GameStop and showed up on release day and they're like, "Sorry, we didn't get enough." When you've been waiting a long time for something, that'll really piss you off.
