    I can check when I get home later today from work, if no one checks before me. From my recollection, it doesn't include the Nocenti/Aja story, but my memory may fail me.

    My recent accumulated Marvel haul:





    I managed to pick up the Ultimate Spider-Man Vol. 7 OHC for below cover price from the amazon.co.uk marketplace. This was one of my best white whale finds of late. I only need to pick up Vol. 4+5, no real point in waiting around for a Vol. 2 Omnibus. I don't usually purchase PHC's but from what I understand the Waid Captain America Man Out of Time miniseries will not be in the upcoming Captain America by Waid Omnibus, so I decided to pick up the PHC as it was going for a fiver. The 2 CA OHCs (America First & For Ever Allies) only cost about 4 each (incl. shipping).

    Thanks. The majority of new books I purchase from InStockTrades, the remaining few from Amazon if there's a "glitch" price such as those on the DC Omnis several months back, and a book or two from ArtsnCrafts on the amazon.co.uk marketplace.

    No, I'm in Poland. I know the shipping outside of the US is quite high with IST but I just prefer to get my books In one piece without any hassle. I used to shop around and get the cheapest deals possible from the amazon.com, amazon.co.uk marketplace or from B&N or look out for glitches (which I still do) but the last year or so I decided to go with IST and I haven't regretted it. They have bombproof packaging and if I've received a damaged book (very rarely), they've either refunded me or sent me a new book.

    Not the best and yet books in general come in good shape. I've had one or two that came with a squashed corner or two and it's a real hassle to get a decent refund or replacement from them. They are not easy to work with. However, the majority have arrived fine and they generally have the best prices on the marketplace and deliver to Poland. Out of the batch above, I purchased the Aftermath: Realm of Kings Omnibus and it seems in perfect nick.

    I absolutely LOVED "Man Out of Time" and "Forever Allies"! I'm still holding out hope for "Man Out of Time" to be released in oversized format someday, and Forever Allies is a fun and underrated story featuring BuckyCap! Looking forward to revisiting both titles in the near future!

    It seems to be a complete hodge podge of stories, and an overpriced one at that, especially compared to the Ennis reprint.

    How's the material collected in it? I've enjoyed most of the modern runs of the character, but pre-Ennis I haven't read much.
    It's not overpriced. It collects classic material as opposed to the Ennis omnibus, and was Masterworks-level restored by Cory.

    Raffi is correct. It does not have the Nocenti/Aja standalone story "3 Jacks" -which is excellent, btw. Nor does it have the preview of the Dark Reign story (Tan & Diggle) or the reprint of the classic Miller story from DD #191, Roulette. You'd have to hunt down the original issues for those.

    The omnibus does have the Annual & Blood of the Tarantula issues as you probably already know. It also has the pin-up gallery from #500 with extra covers and process pages. One of the process pages features Aja's artwork, ironically enough.

    I need some advice. I've gotten the first 3 volumes each of the Avengers and Captain America Epic collections. Which should I read read first?

    I might give it a shot by sticking to mostly oversized hardcovers, fat trades, and some digital material, but the thought of buying everything kinda scares me lol
    I more or less did this in 2012 to get ready for AvX - started with Disassembled and read all of Bendis Avengers plus all Events up to present before reading AvX. The wheels kinda come off the bus a bit after Secret Invasion and things aren't quite so tightly or deliberately plotted (though Dark Avengers is a real treat).

    Psst - I am currently slogging through catching up on ANAD Marvel!

    Besides Vision, which was great but not what I was expecting, Black Widow was absolutely spectacular comics-making. Also, Ultimates is great and A-Force was way, way more fun than I've heard anyone give it any credit for.

    And, finally, while Invincible Iron Man wasn't exactly groundbreaking storytelling, Marquez's art on it is a sight to behold.
