Marvel have it listed as this week on their site, and several other Comics retailers also have it listed. I myself, am greatly looking forward to this. Although, after two months of delay, I will only believe it when the nice men from Amazon finally dispatch it to me.
As a reminder of content in this illustrious tome, which doubtless will be thick enough to squash a small child, here's Marvel's official blurb:

There's a lot in there. The Alan Moore and the Jamie Delano issues, in particular, are some of my favourite comic stories of the 80s. I know it's a steep price tag. But if you have the money to burn you could do far worse than picking this up. You won't be disappointed.
I guess the question remains though, will it ACTUALLY come out this week? Keep me posted guys. If you buy it this week, or if you even see it in your local Comic Book store, I want to know.

It's been a long time coming, folks. Here's hoping it finally arrives.
