    114008

    Barely- as you can see, it is negligible. If that makes a big difference to your reading experience, fine, but it doesn't to me and I don't think it will for most readers. If you want to...

    Omnis are essentially cheap quantity over quality publications. I don't get how they became seen to be this premium format- its strange to me to see people bang on about oversized when the panels are...

    I've never really got why anyone cares which cover they get on an Omnibus. Its the cheapest bit of the book, being a flimsy wraparound- I normally take them off in any case as they nearly always get...

    If you've got that many, maybe its time to cut down the collection. There's only so much re-reading anyone can feasibly, especially if you are still adding to the collection.

    Alternatively, I have...

    Yes- and it is worth upgrading. The earlier issues are now coloured for the first time. Also, its about the same thickness as the Gargantua volume, but has almost 200 less pages as the paper is...

    I'm kind of disappointed with the whole Dawn of X premise. Its convoluted, makes pretty much all of the X-characters smarmy and dislikeable, and the overall premise just does not add up. I don't see...

    Would there be a market for it? They already have the hardcovers, which are oversized so are the same height/width as Omnibus editions. For me, they are preferrable to Omnibus in every way; easier to...

    Agreed on this- Billy's struggle particularly with Omnibus editions- unless its the centre shelf, they end up curving under the weight.

    The scene with the Guardians; I thought it was much more well executed in the comic. This was just gore for the sake of gore; they are clearly trying to tap into the Walking Dead and to tell the...

    Interesting- guess that they must treat 'classic' material differently, as all my X-men crossover OHCs are sewn I think.

    Yeah that's kind of my thinking, that Marvel normally make sure books that...

    Are you sure? I cannot recall the last time Marvel released an OHC with glued binding- also, if it was glued binding, I'm surprised it lays down flat in any place.

    It may just be a bad/tight...

    There's maybe a two millimetre difference in the panel sizes of an Epic collection compared to an Omnibus- its barely noticeable in most cases. The reasons to get an Omnibus should be nicer paper...

    The starting point for any Thor run should be the first 5 Thor Epic Collections. Also, worth getting the Tales of Asgard book; Kirby's art gets a new dimension with the modern colouring.

    Seems to be in stock at quite a few places. It has been reduced a few times, sometimes this does lead to the book going OOP altogether.

    The only thing that the new collection really adds is the X-men v Fantastic Four series. I wish I had kept hold of my OHC edition to be honest.
