    I believe ASM Vol. 4 will most certainly break the 2,000 barrier. ASM Vol. 3 is a good indicator (2,693).

    Let's just hope Marvel don't release both of these Spidey Omnis in the same week. Two $125 Omnis at the same time is a bit much. Unfortunately, Marvel do have a tendency to release two or three Omnis in the same week and then nothing gor a while.

    I have all this material in MMW format, but since the upcoming volume seamlessly connects with Vol. 15, there won't be double dipping in my shelf (that was my excuse not to buy Vol. 3).

    Regarding the JMS one, it's a run I really like since it's the one where I really started reading Spidey monthly back in my teen years. But I'll probably wait for the second volume to be solicited and buy them in one go, at least for the time being.
    I'll also be picking up the Romita cover which means I need to pick it up on release week from IST and pay the hefty shipping fee. I'm very happy that it covers all of MMW Vol. 14 as this one of my white whales (I have MMW ASM 11-13 and 15 upwards).

    Not just release week, release day. As i recall the v3 DM variant sold out within hours on IST, as some of those classic covers tend to do

    Hey guys and girls, I haven't been on the board in forever and wanted to get some input. I've been caring for a sick family member and things took a turn for the worse and will have to be moving out of the home I live in within the next few months and probably move into an apartment. The problem is I now have financial problems and around half of my Omni/OHC collection will not be making the trip with me due to both room and the actual problem of moving the heavy books. I was thinking about putting them up on ebay but I know back in the day people posted on this thread and listed what they had and worked out selling them to other members on the board through private messages. Is that still and ok thing to do? It would be about a dozen Omni's and around 20 OHC's that are pretty much all OOP and I wouldn't be looking to rip anyone off (they definitely would be priced well below Amazon marketplace prices). Just looking for any input otherwise I'll just throw them up on ebay but I would rather sell them to any of you guys who would want them and not pay through the nose.

    While I always try to get the classic cover with classic books, I still haven't seen the standard cover for this. Is there an image of it yet?

    To avoid any inadvertent rule violations, I'd say this post is fine as it is. Anyone who reads it is free to reach out to you via DM, and you guys can take it from there.

    There's also comicswap on Reddit and a couple Facebook groups thst are relatively popular where you can easily sell directly via PayPal or whatever without the Ebay fees

    That's a good point. I'm going to have to be on my toes.

    I hope things work out for you and your family member.

    I haven't seen an image yet. It may be delayed similar to the Conan Omnibus Vol. 1 Cassaday regular cover which appeared in a later solicitation.

    A few questions for everyone:

    I'm thinking about dipping my toes into the Clone Saga and Ben Reilly saga - worth it? yes, no, give me reasons? I realize it's convoluted and way too drawn out, but is it any good?

    1) Are the two Clone Saga omnibuses - is that it, or is there a 3rd expected? (I really am unfamiliar with this era of Spidey).
    2) The Ben Reilly omnibus that's coming out in early JAN, that directly follows Clone Saga omnibus 2, is that right?
    3) How many Ben Reilly omnibuses would we expect? 2?

    thanks again!

    There will only be two clone saga omnis, the story directly continues into the "Ben Reilly saga", which will also be 2 omnis. There are great stories in each omni, however there is also a lot of filler and garbage as well. For me that means they are not worth purchasing.

    1) Just two.
    2) Yup.
    3) Almost certainly two.

    I have these on the "Complete Epic" TPBs that were released some time ago.
    The stories have their high points, but as iPodwithnomusic said, the filler material is too much. Also, in my opinion the art is a big selling point for oversized books, and in this case most of it is pretty bad, at least to my taste (with few exceptions, like Sienkewicz inking Buscema, or some JRJR). I'd skip the 4 omnis unless you find them for super-cheap prices.

    1. Two Clone Saga omnis indeed. Haven't had the chance to check the binding at my LCS, but they are big, big books
    2. That is correct. Just like the first "Complete Ben Reilly Epic" immediately followed the last "Complete Clone Saga Epic"
    3. There's a previously uncollected gap after what I assume to be the contents of the second Ben Reilly omni, but it's not related to the Ben Reilly story. So I'm thinking two omnis total.

    I just got Mcfarlanes Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus and The Tomb of Dracula . I had read someone had issues with the ASM omnibus with pages stuck together at back. Mine does not have this issue. The TOD omnibus does though. I will have to split the pages with a sharp knife. It affects the last part of the last issue and the extras.

    The first Clone Saga Omnibus has a bunch of really great issues sprinkled about the book, but as the story mucks on it becomes really tedious slog. I haven’t picked up Vol II yet but I will at some point but only for completionest’s sake.

    What's the likelihood of JMS's Thor Omnibus being reprinted?

    I can only see this happening alongside a new Thor movie (or a possible Thor reboot) or to celebrate Straczynski's 70th birthday.
