    I remember reading the character’s Essential volume, but that was over a decade ago, so I haven’t retained much. From what I can recall, it’s a fairly standard Bronze Age title, perfectly fine,...

    I have no idea of the sales figures for Defenders volume 1, but part of me wonders if its being the first volume with the new spine designs, complete with tiny lettering, may have hurt it. Yes, now...

    True, although given that the Conan Properties president said Marvel chose not to renew the license, one might suspect that the Collected Editions department thought, “Well, the initial deal is for...

    Just fantastic news. This series is a breath of fresh air: peppy, optimistic, full of good messages but not preachy. The perfect series to read with your daughters, sons, nieces and nephews. (Of...

    Calm down, son. No enemies here. (I’d even consider picking up a ‘Nam collection myself.) I was just appreciating the irony of asking for an ‘80s series about a ‘60s/‘70s war while simultaneously...

    Yeah… X-Force really struggled for an identity for much of its run. Personally, I’d be all over an omni of the “Road Trippin’” era, when they were the New Mutants again in all but name, ditching...

    Since Web replaced Marvel Team-Up, they should really do that first. But I suppose licensing issues would make later volumes a bit dicey.

    Of the three book reinventions, only X-Man was considered to be truly successful, and no one cares about X-Man. Generation X tried to be interesting by launching with everyone mourning Synch’s death...

    Yes, it’s an OHC. As for imperative, I think it depends on the book. For X-Men, yes, there’s a major plot development in the “Giant Size X-Men” one-shot. The New Mutants used their issue to slightly...

    As ARk said, it’s just speculation; none of us actually know how long the licensing deal is for. (As you noted, it would be a pretty short stint; though it’s possible Marvel is also looking ahead at...

    Ah, well that’s another story!

    I’d buy them, for sure. I don’t know how much of a market there’d be, but they’d be a day 1 purchase for me, at least!
