    I’m 15 pages in to the book. Not sure this is a necessary buy. Thrower is so exhaustive and the book coming in August promises to be a scholarly look at Jess’ Films. This one is neither, just kind of a look we’ve seen before, so far.

    Thanks for the feedback. It's greatly appreciated. I will probably skip this book. The other one you listed releasing in August is nearly double the length of this one. Between that & the Stephen Thrower book, fans will be much better taken care of.

    The Franco Vol 1 script book arrived today from Spain. Really happy with this purchase. Mid section of the book has photos and Jess’ handwritten notes on a script. Will be curious to read the scripts. Nice, quality paperback.

    Volume 2 of Thrower's Franco book, Standard and Special edition. Have at it:

    I went Special edition, obviously.

    edit: It also appears a reprint is coming late this year for Vol. 1. Good news for those who missed it first time around and didn't want to pay scalper prices.

    Thanks for the link Angelman. For the small price difference I got the limited edition as well. I saw the limited version of Murderous Passions on Ebay for $600.00.

    Awesome. Yeah - there's a few on Amazon for $500. While the nerd collector in me likes the idea of my book being "worth" that, I much prefer the book be available to people who want to read/support Franco, Thrower and a small press.

    I missed out on Volume One, so I'm very happy about the reprint. Any idea when the reprint is getting released?

    “Early 2019 in full color” it says on their site.

    I only purchased the standard edition of Murderous Passions but when I see even copies of that selling for over $150 I figured it can't hurt to get the limited edition of the new book. Especially since the price wasn't much more.

    I've got the Collector's Edition of Vol.1 and pre-ordered the Collector's Edition of Vol.2, but will definitely be double-dipping on the reprint of Vol.1 when it comes out simply for the fact of the photos being re-printed in colour since the original pressing was just black and white!

    The limited edition showed up today. Looking forward to checking it out. Also have the regular edition on order (since September 2017).
