I am hopefully going to a shopping mall this week - which has a Works store there.

I will keep a look out for all of these - I will most likely pick one or two of them. I love Batman.

Heat added.

This is the first time I am going to The Works Store

Thanks for adding the pic, was in a but of a rush earlier and didn't have time to add one. They must have just had these in as they didn't have them last week. I know cos my daughter is mad on graphic novels (especially Batman) so I have been looking out for them as its her birthday next week. Dropped lucky on these really, a good selection and at the right price :thumbsup:

I'll be heading down there tomorrow in Torquay, they might not have em, but they might do!

if V for Vendetta is £5, I may go insane, and I want all of the novels you listed as examples

didnt have any last time i was in there bar a hardcover version
"Killing Joke " GN which is one of the very best batman stories ever

Noticed some Love and rockets GNs as well, but i had heard of v for vendetta gn
for bargain price, but couldnt see any. Pity as i would buy that like a shot

How much was Watchmen?

The Killing Joke is supposed to be awesome!

It is.

Any other recommendations?

When I go this week to the shopping mall which has the work - I will make a list of what they had so people know.

Killing joke sounds good, doubt it will be £2.99? BTW if you like the Batman comics then you'll love the new Arkham Asylum game.

HI there ive been ringing some local stores and they havent had any in yet (solihull & acocks green) The guy at acocks green was really helpful and said that if i could get the barcode from one of the books he could search for me and see where there is any stock. The barcode will be a works only barcode should be a sticker over the top of each original barcode so if anyone manages to get some of these books could they please let us know one of the codes.

cheers

Also could the OP let us know which store they got there books from ?

Only V for vendetta at Nottingham. £3.99. About 6 left as of Sunday 23rd, thanks for the tip.

I was super excited about this one, but unfortunately only V for Vendetta at the Metrocentre (Gateshead) and nothing in Royal Quays (North Shields)... 3.99 for V though.

Awesome, thanks! I'll check the liverpool store tomorrow

Nothing in the Bromley store...

Thats strange. I've been in a few Works stores locally (like Bham,Telford etc) and they always seem to have the same or similar stock in so it seems odd that they told you that. It would be unusual if Wolverhampton only got these but I hope some of the other shops get these so other people get the chance to buy them at a good price as the rrp in places like Waterstones are frankley ridiculous.

I rang the birmingham store and they said they didnt have any graphic novels in but had some comic packs in ( i think a selection of 10 comics)

None near me yet

None in Carlisle.

Justa quick update here i phoned up wolverhampton store on monday and got them to save me one of each batman title went yesterday to have a look and managed to get a good few books.

Glad to see someone else got some too, still don't understand why its only Wolverhampton works that got them though :thinking:

Well it says there Titan returns on the barcode so maybe there the only ones who know what to order ?

Thought id ressurect this as i picked up starwars : Empire vols 5 6 & 7 in the works in birmingham Forr 2.99 a pop. They also had v for vendetta, swampthing, superman , and a vertigo book called god save the queen.

Still nowt in Carlisle. God Save The Queen looks nice but is pretty poor (my girlfriend bought it for me).
