    With Amazon having listings up for Omni titles through May at least is it likely we aren't going to see any DD Omni material, new or reprints, to coincide with his Netflix TV show?
    I don't have the Bendis or Brubaker DD volumes and while I have the DD MMW Silver Age material I'd like to get those in an Omni, I'd sell the MMW to get just the one volume. The DD material is a big hole in my Omni collection.

    Yeah looks like it's avengers season for the first half of next year (with some other stuff peppered in) but there will probably some surprises. No Spidey omni makes me sad. Are there any x-omnis beyond onslaught and its avengers double billing?

    I was wondering the same, with stuff like X-Men by Alan Davis, X-Men by Seagle & Kelly, Uncanny X-Men-The New Age by Chris Claremont and X-Men: Legacy (X-Men: Legacy Vol. 1 #208–218, not the new stuff) on one hand and New mutants, Excalibur, Peter D. X-factor,... i wonder why they're keeping the X-men related omnibus to stuff connected to the avengers or stuff like this Inferno "prologue" ..

    I'm with you on this. If a SA DD Omnibus does appear, I'll probably purchase it and still keep my MMW HCs due to the paper quality.

    I'm eagerly awaiting a DD Miller Companion Omnibus reprint.

    Can anyone tell me if the Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus is any good? Is the storyline good and worth the purchase of the omnibus or stick with the trade paperback? Any help would be greatly appreciated

    The Infinity Gauntlet and Silver Surfer issues in the omni are great. There are a lot of tie-ins and some are good and some not. Personally, I really like the omnibus.

Oh, Gossamyr... how does it feel that writers have brought back freaking Bird-Brain, yet no one has deigned to touch you?

    Haven't read the X-Factor issues, so at least there'll be the novelty factor. But overall, yeah, this is a gap-filling purchase.
    Ugh! The mention of Bird Brain just made me throw up a little in my mouth. Thanks again, Louise Simonson!

    Haha, if I had to guess I'd say it's the start-up. I love them but all the free food combined with the stress will kill you. We started having a personal trainer come in a couple of times a week at one start up.

    I didn't have too much of a problem with recent X-Men until about the time of Battle of the Atom. Part of it is that I've never liked Cyclops so I didn't care what they did with him in AvX and the art in ANXM was incredible. But it only lasted about a dozen or so issues before it was derailed terribly. I hated, HATED the resolution to Battle of the Atom and mostly just find all of it kind of annoying at this point.

    Battle of the Atom was the first over-sized X-book that I didn't end up owning. Prologue to Inferno is the second.

    It's very good. The Silver Surfer lead-in issues are excellent and it contains Thanos Quest which I honestly think is better than the Gauntlet event itself. A few of the tie-ins are bad (Cloak and Dagger) but they're mostly excellent to decent as well.

    Honestly, I would probably have paid that price for just the Thanos QUest and IG issues so it is worth it. Ideally they would have dropped more of the tie ins for Infinity War or other Infinity Watch stuff. Infinity Crusade just sucked. I do see a big IW Omni coming before the MCU Avengers 3&4.

    Well I just bought Miller's Daredevil, New Avengers, and Deadpool from IST. Thinking about wolverine and the X-Men would you guys recommend that?

    The general WatXM consensus is that it starts awesome and gets lost over time. The series is an acquired taste, if you have no exposure to it, try and get some before deciding. But the first 10 or so issues is not representative of the entire series. I would not blind buy this.

    I would have been very happy if the extraneous tie-ins like Cloak and Dagger were replaced with the contents of the Infinity Gauntlet: Aftermath trade (IE: Warlock and the Infinity Watch issues which explain what happened with the Gauntlet after the end of the main series) Plus maybe the enjoyable 'What If... The Silver Surfer Possessed the Infinity Gauntlet' issue.

    Infinity War is a completely different story so I wouldnt really want that in the same book, but having at the very least Warlock and the Infinity Watch #1 would have made the omnibus MUCH better IMO because it directly follows IG. But it's still great without it.

    Agree. I loved the series, but it's really a love/hate thing. It's pretty dern wacky. If you don't like wacky, you won't enjoy it. Not a serious book at all.
