    Thanks ArkhamJanie, that was helpful. I've got the month's free MU subscription so I'll give Hickman another try.

    Holburn Books & Gifts has the Deadpool & X-Force Omnibus for £29.99 plus £2.80 postage in the UK. I think its the Amazon trading name for Turnaround books. In any case, these are very good condition,...

    I do fully understand the word consecutive. When it comes to Omnibuses, consecutive refers to mapping, and every example of Marvel's mapping has Volume 3 being the MMW 7 and 8 issues.

    I think for X-men you'd have to say its currently up to volume 6 on that reasoning, with Volume 3 as yet unreleased. There's enough material for an original X-men Omnibus 3 from the pre-Giant-Sized...

    It depends really, sometimes its hard to judge creative efforts on the basis of what I've learnt about the creator. As much as I loved Daredevil by Miller, I've seen too much of his politics and...
