    Yeah that's just mind blowing to me. Marvel has had the same spine on all of their classic omni's for what, 10-12 yrs at least? Wtf happened with The Defenders?!

    Total DC move, tbh...

    I'm thinking someone made a mistake with the font and they only realised once all the dust jackets were printed. Marvel being the skinflints they are, didn't recall them and are acting as nothing happened. DC do make the more glaring mistakes and more often but they have been good enough to recall Omnibuses such as Fourth World and Superman Morrson and provide replacements. I can't recall Marvel doing the same with the recent mistakes in the Silver Surfer and Bendis Daredevil Omnibuses or any other for that matter.

    Hi. Does anyone have any tips as to how to package an omni for sale? I'm selling off some I don't like but are desired and I am not sure how to safely package them and what box would be good.

    Hey DebkoX, I don't know if you remember how I packed the Omnibus I sent you a couple of years ago. I place the Omnibus in a protective plastic cover, wrap bubble wrap around it several times, and also tape extra bubble wrap/packing on each corner so that you can't feel the corners at all. I usually use a sturdy cardboard box from Amazon/IST/other retailer. I place extra cardboard under, above and on the sides of the Omnibus so that the packed Omnibus is not solely touching the walls of the box. I then place scrunched up paper, packing peanuts and similar material all around the Omnibus so that there is no "breathing" space and there is no chance for the book to be able to move around. It needs to be a tight fit so that even if some incompetent courier/postal worker throws the parcel around, the book itself will be immovable and cushioned all around. I also usually tape the majority if not all the exterior of the box with wrapping waterproof tape. Hope that helps

    Hi! Thanks for replying. I was actually trying to recall how you packed the omnibus which arrived in tremendous condition. Thank you so much for giving me some really good advice. I just know that I wouldn't want my book to come damaged, so I am trying to be proactive.

    Just make sure the box is double layerd by putting some extra cardboard on the bottom and top. Pack the book in something that covers it ckmpletely and fill the space around with material that keeps it in place. Nothing can go wrong.

    What are you going to sell?

    I'm looking to sell the following omnis:

    [1] Uncanny X-Men volume 1 (claremont) / opened
    [2] Uncanny X-Men volume 2 (claremont) / sealed
    [3] Uncanny X-Men volume 3 (Claremont) / sealed

    Depending on how they go I may also shift some others. I'm also trying to be fair with the prices so I am monitoring Ebay because these omnis seem to sell for a lot, but, I'm not trying to take the p!ss.

    I only have about 6 (or 7) more Omnibus/Absolute books to buy, then I'm quitting the game!
    That'll put me at about 200 Omni/Abso books and I will have (most) everything I actually want.
    I've been collecting these from the beginning of them being published, so I didn't miss out on much, but now that I'm running out of space, with a baby coming, I figure this will be the perfect time to put a bow on the collection.

    (might end up selling a few as well, just to tighten things up)

    This is what I have left the I still want to buy, then I quit!

    - Absolute Swamp Thing by Moore vol 3
    - Excalibur by Alan Davis omni vol 2
    - Hulk by Peter David omni vol 3 (and maybe 4)
    - Empyre omni
    - Batman by Snyder omni vol 2
    - X-Men by Hickman omni
    - Batwoman by JH Williams omni (if it ever gets released)
