    Question Seven soldiers of victory TPB/HC vs Omnibus

    Are the TPBs/HCs volume 1 and 2 in the correct reading order?

    Or...

    The omnibus in the version with the correct reading order only?

    ^- could someone confirm the orders I posted

    Here (in France) we have 2 volumes (part of the Final Crisis Omnibus) in the following order:
    vol.1:
    -- Seven Soldiers of Victory 0
    -- Seven Soldiers: Shining Knight 1-4
    -- Seven Soldiers: Guardian 1-4
    -- Seven Soldiers: Zatanna 1-3
    -- Seven Soldiers: Klarion the Witcher Boy 1-3
    vol.2:
    -- Seven Soldiers of Victory #1
    -- Seven Soldiers : Mister Miracle #1-4
    -- Seven Soldiers : Frankenstein #1-4
    -- Seven Soldiers : Bulleteer #1-4
    -- Seven Soldiers : Zatanna #4
    -- Seven Soldiers : Klarion the Witch Boy #4


    The original publication order is:
    Corresponds to the TPB in 4 volumes


    I think that some stories are disconnected ans can be read in any order.
    I also think that the best reading order is the publishing order.

    This is incorrect. The Omnibus is arranged in correct reading order.

    The two-volume set is in the same order as the omnibus. And I'd assume the 4-volume set is as well. I think all the collected editions are in publication order, which is considered the correct reading order.

    To me huge omnibus are not the best choices. Thes are heavy. Hardly carryable. And more expensive.

    I'm of a different opinion. I prefer comic books the way I like female posteriors. I want it thick, but not too unwieldy, well-shaped, and sized appropriately so the imagery can be viewed properly in all its splendor.

    Absolutes & omnis are phenomenal. Even basic hardcovers don't compare when you get to the volume size, both in terms of page count and page height/width. It's why I make sure to buy omnis or absolutes whenever I like a storyline enough to merit adding such to my collection.

    The Seven Soldiers omni isn't really very big anyway, it's as easy to read as most OHC's really.

    Is this OOP? Can't find it at the usual places.

    Edit:
    Well after looking around and seeing it sold out many places I decided to order one from Amazon UK. Had a 5 credit to use up anyway, came to about $50 with shipping. Never ordered an omni from Amazon, let alone from across the ocean, so I'm rolling the dice on what condition it shows up in.

    Watch it get a new printing soon...

    I actually got this within about a week, very fast for overseas. Of course they just put it in a box with one crumpled piece of paper as "padding" lol. Had a couple slightly smooshed corners but in acceptable shape given the poor packaging and distance traveled.

    But I probably wouldn't order another omni from Amazon unless it was from desperation like this one.
