Originally, the much-delayed League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: The Black Dossier was supposed to be a deluxe package that included a 45 RPM single. Those features were cut back in favor of releasing a single hardcover (although one with 3-D glasses) in November 2007.
An Absolute Edition was then offered to come out at the end of this month (July 2008). It was supposed to contain the record, “a 45-rpm vinyl recording of the song ‘Immortal Love,’ sung by Alan Moore himself!”
Now, DC has just announced that the Absolute Edition “will not include the 45-rpm record as originally solicited. Because of this change, this item will be made returnable at a later date.”
I’m confused, now, as to how the Absolute Edition is going to be significantly different enough to justify a $99 price tag instead of the hardcover’s $30. Sure, it’ll have a slipcase… but what are the bonuses?
