Hmmm...No Hardcover version?

Especially for 14.99?

Yeah, I'm still trying to wrap my head around how two $3.99 issues equates to a trade paperback of $14.99. Some interesting marketing magic going on there.

Yeah, I'm a hardcore fan of this stuff, but if thats what its really gonna be, I'm gonna have to pass on it.

If it was a hardcover for 14.99, I know I would actually still complain, but probably fold. 14.99 for a TPB of two issues is just plain silly.

Is anything new going to be added?

I saw it and although a fan, I just could not justify it. The cost between the two single issues and the TPB was too much for nothing extra in return.

Hopefully it will pop up along with some other stuff in hardcover form somewhere down the line.

Re: Marvel Atlas TPB

Back at capesoptional, I had posted a number of fictional countries that were never placed in the Marvel Atlas, no doubt because they are obscure and easy to miss, or else the writers of the Atlas didn't have the space to cover them.  Unfortunately, I lost all of my research on this fun topic due to a computer crash, so I have tried to recover whatever I can of it from various sources.  Below is what I have been able to cobble together, but I know there were others beyond what I have below.  If anyone can find any others (I'm pretty sure there were others in Royal Roy, for example), I would be very interested in any info on these obscure countries posted in this thread.

Alslavia (Marvel Mystery Comics #22)
Attainia (American Ace stories)
Boravia (Joker Comics #1, also in Spider-Man newspaper strip, but that's a different continuity)
