    Most of the omnibus that make the top 60list are either a first volume in a new series or a volume continuing an existing omnibus series.

    That got me thinking about titles that can be done in one omnibus. What done in one omnibus would you like to see coming out?

    Criteria:

    1. Content has to be within 12 - 50ish issues. Less than 12 is just a OHC. More than 50ish would need more than one volume.
    2. The volume has to include an entire series or more.

    My choices are:

    Marvel
    1, Nth Man: The Ultimate Ninja - 16 issue series, material from Marvel Comics Presents 25, and Excalibur 27
    2. Captain Britain and the MI 13 - 15 issues, 1 annual, and the 6 issue Wisdom mini
    3. Clan Destine by Alan Davis - the original 8 issue series, 2 issue X-Men crossover, 5 issue mini, 3 annuals from 2012 and story from MCP 158 (non Davis issues from the 1st series are optional)
    4. Agents of Atlas by Jeff Parker - Basically the content from the 2 complete collections.
    5. Nomad by Fabian Nicieza - the 4 issue mini, 25 issue ongoing, various crossovers, and material fro Cap annual and MCP
    5. Gambit by Fabian Nicieza - Basically the content from the 2 complete collections
    6. Jack of Hearts by Bill Mantlo - The stories from Deadly Hand of Kung Fu 23-30 Iron Man 103-112, Marvel Premiere 44, Marvel Two In One 48, Marvel Team UP 134, and Jack of Hearts 1-4
    7. Bishop: The Last X-Man - 1-15 (I'm going to bend my rules by omitting issue 16, which is the last issue by a different writer that leads into a mini series)
    8. Kazar (90s series) - 21 issues and an annual
    9. Hercules by Bob Layton - 2 mini series from the 80s, the Full Circle Graphic Novel, stories from MCP 39-41, and Twilight of a God min
    10. Defenders by Busiek/Larsen - 12 issue Defenders series, 6 issue The Order series
    11. Punisher by Rucka - 16 issue series, 5 issue War Zone mini 1-5, material from Spider Island
    12. Weapon H by Pak - Weapon X 1-12, Totally Awesome Hulk 19-22, Weapon of Mutant Destruction one shot, Weapon H 1-12, Hulkverine 1-3

    From DC
    1. Power Company by Kurt Busiek - 18 issue series, 7 one shots
    2. The Ray - 6 issue mini, 29 issue series, 1 annual, Black Canary #8 guest appearance
    3. DC Tanget - 18 one shot issues
    4. Justice Society by Len Stazewski - 8 issue mini, 10 issue ongoing
    5. Manhunter - Kate Spencer - 38 issue ongoing, stories from Batman: Streets of Gotham 1-13
    6. The Question by Dennis O'Neil - 36 issue ongoing, 2 annuals, 5 quarterly specials
    7. Resurrection Man - 28 issue first series, 13 issue New 52 series
    8. Thunder Agents by Nick Spencer - 10 issue first series, 6 issue 2nd series
    Def wanna see that Jack of Hearts. But with the Ganmede story from the 90s added too,

    What I would love but will NEVER get would be a Gerard Jones GL omnibus, I loved his GL run up until the end of the Third Law arc and his Mosaic is my favorite take on the character however his personal crap will mean my 2nd favorite GL run will never see the light of day in reprint form.

    I feel ya man. It's been suggested by other posters in other threads, but maybe someday they'll find a loophole that will allow them to reprint his work without actually putting cash in his pocket.

    In Spain they did a book with the post-Gaiman Black Orchid! I just saw that one time and regret not buying it - despite never hearing nothing good about the series haha

    That's awesome! I've considered custom binding my own issues, but it's such an expensive and time-consuming process - especially for a series that while good imho, isn't exactly a classic.

    Slingers from Marvel.

    Though a trade paperback would suffice. If there isn't already one. Is there one?

    The Spectre by J.M. DeMattis includes #1-25 and the 2 part JLA/Spectre: Soul War mini-series. I don't know if DC has ever done this if not they should.

    Topps X-Files series is really underrated, especially the first few years worth of stories!

    Not sure if you're already aware, but IDW released a series of four X-Files Classics hardcovers that collect that run. While not oversized, they're well built and look great!

    This just showed up on Amazon. Fingers crossed it actually gets printed with a second volume to finish.
