    As for two threads, people can vote with their posts. This thread covers Marvel's collected editions in general, including classic trades, Masterworks (HC and TPB), Epic Collections, Complete/Ultimate Collections, Marvel Premiere Classic, Essential and anything else. The other thread is exclusive to OHCs and omnibuses. People who want to stay exclusive to OHCs and Omnis can stay in that thread. People who want a more inclusive community and more topics of conversation can stay here. One will be more successful than the other.
    Ehh, I think the sooner we can put the axe in one of these two threads, the better. I like the "collected editions" title, but hope it won't put off anyone. A collected editions forum would be a good idea, but in general, I'm in favor of having to keep only one thread pinned in Chrome to keep up with all Marvel "jumbo collected edition" news and discussion. I'm personally fine with that including jumbo-TPB's like Epics, but maybe the word "omnibus" in parentheses somewhere in the title will help people know they have found the right place in this awkward time of transition.

    I'm an omnibus OHC fan, but I prefer awareness of all editions in case I need story I can't find. Love the new thread!

    I picked up Spider-Man Stern Omnibus, Deadpool Max OHC and Spider Island Companion today.

    Are Epic Collections in color? I've never seen one.

    I'm sure the mods will make a choice sometime soon.

    Epics are in full color. One of their primary selling points is they're like the Essentials but in color.

    For anyone who actually owns one of the Epic Trades, how are they quality wise?

    I see a Moon Knight Epic solicited for October. Assuming it is from the 80's series. Very excited to see the first volume finally being collected.

    Very happy to see this thread back up again. I'd vote for a Collected Editions forum as well.

    I would also like a collected Editions forum as that's 90% of my reading right now

    Gahhh, I can't handle 2 Marvel threads. It's like Sophie's Choice. I can't even remember where to find a profile pic.
