    I'm glad to see this. I have the Marvel hardcover editions and stopped buying them when they reverted to paperback only releases. I'm glad Gallery 13 is re-issuing them.

    (although, to be honest, I don't care for the actual stories very much, and I doubt whether the volumes themselves will gain value as collectibles)

    I'm pretty much right there with you. I got the hardcovers up through The Man in Black but never any of the TPBs. The Drawing of the Three is my favorite book in the series, so I can't help but buy the new hardcovers Gallery 13 is releasing, but it's definitely one of those cases where I'm aware I'm collecting something just to collect it and not necessarily for the joy of it. I'm torn between wishing they'd continue the comics (The Waste Lands seems like it could be the most adaptable) and hoping they stop so I don't feel compelled to keep buying.

    Still no sign of The Sailor, and Gallery 13's own website doesn't list any of the Drawing of the Three HCs. The back of The Prisoner also only shows the first four books. I know it's crazy times right now, and I'm sure I hope we'll see The Sailor eventually, but it'll definitely trigger my mild OCD if something happens and we end up one hardcover short of a complete set.

    Amazon shows a complete Drawing of the Three boxset from Gallery 13 coming out in October, so I'm sure The Sailor will be released sometime this summer.
    They've been dropping one volume a month, so it should be out in July based on that schedule.

No one puts bric-a-brac to any very practical purpose. There's some human instinct which makes a man treasure what he is not to make any use of, because everybody does not possess it.

    I saw that, but the description also only lists the first four arcs, which is part of what has me scratching my head. The page count of 640 would seem to indicate the inclusion of all five parts though—unless there’s a lot of bonus material.

    The lack of any info on their website makes me think they’re probably just really understaffed in that department, so maybe it’s an oversight. I guess we’ll see!

    I still haven't seen any mention anywhere of The Sailor. The first three HCs list arcs 1-4 in the back, but not the fifth. I haven't received my copy of Bitter Medicine yet, but I'm not holding out a lot of hope that I'll learn anything new there. I tried reaching out to Gallery13 via Twitter and their website but got no response.

    I was also looking at the Gallery13 website last week trying to find any mention of The Sailor. The site seems very out of date.
    You wouldn't think a single volume would have a rights issue, but it seems very odd that nothing showing up for the fifth volume.

    Yeah, a rights issue is the only explanation I've been able to come up with. The fifth arc does have a different artist, but who knows. If we end up one hardcover short of a complete set, it'll be pretty disappointing.
