The absolutes and Omnis are built to last
well most of them are.
my absolute long Halloween and dark knight
are sturdy as can be.
But my Justice and Hush Absolute feels a bit fragile I can see the pages falling out in time.
Marvel Omnibus's are the best though
I don't know how they make them so well but so far so good with me.
IDW\Image\Dark horse all print with similar HC setup (pretty sure they are the same) they seem pretty solid. However I abuse the use the hell out of my Dark Horse Blacksad book and I hear cracking in the pages all the time so it scares me.
Vertigo seems like the cheap spines you would find on the everyday hardcover but so far so good.
Only ever had one of my books start falling apart and ultimate spiderman HC
I think its just a fluke when it does though.
