This just struck me as odd. IDW is releasing Rocketeer Adventures Volume 1 hardcover on December 7th, and the direct market version will ship with a dust jacket. Here’s the relevant quote:
[quote]All direct market copies of this book will have a dust jacket, exclusive to the direct market, and only available on the first printing![/quote]
Anything to make a product unique and different appeals to collectors in general but dust jackets are the bane of book readers everywhere. This feels like direct market buyers are being punished.
“dust jackets are the bane of book readers everywhere” – How so?
I take my dust jackets off when I read my HC books.
If you have to remove something to comfortably read a book then it’s a problem.
