I don't see the Malibu run of Prototype coming out for example.
Yes, but given that it would generally take you longer to scan than to read, it's probably not worth the effort. (not to mention at least massively damage the spine, if a compilation, or destroy it utterly if you slice the pages out to get a properly flat scan. It's one thing to not care about mint, quite another to go out of your way to reduce its lifespan)
