    Thanks for the tip.
    I can't answer on how important the issues are but 2 of those gaps, 20-25 and 51-55 are in the Unusual Suspects paperback that came out the other year. Issues 1-15 are either in two smaller TPBs or in the Quesada Omni, which is also pretty recent.

    If you’re talking about issues 20-25 and 51-55, those issues were written by other writers. Bob Gale (Back to the Future screenwriter, among many other credits) wrote “Playing to the Camera,” and David Mack wrote “Vision Quest” starring Echo. (Daredevil is barely in the latter arc, it’s an Echo story.)

    I remember that I read at least the Bob Gale arc but have no memory of it. The fact that no one ever talks about it suggests it’s not some lost classic, though.

    They are not mega important to the storyline. Issues #20-25 have no real repurcussions on later events and although the story featured in those issues is not bad, it is pretty forgettable as The Lucky One mentioned. Issues #50-55 basically amount to being a David Mack written and drawn Echo mini-series which hardly even features Daredevil and could have been exactly that - a separate Echo spin-off mini-series which explores who she is and her roots. Wolverine also is an integral part of the storyline. As gohei, wrote, all those issurs feature in the thick Marvel Knights: Daredevil - Unusual Suspects TPB. The complete contents are:
    DAREDEVIL: NINJA #1-3, DAREDEVIL/SPIDER-MAN #1-4, DAREDEVIL (1998) #20-25 and #51-55 and SPIDER-MAN/DAREDEVIL #1.

    As a Daredevil completist, I picked up all the singles, and later the Unusual Suspects TPB. If you're a Daredevil completist, I would say pick up the thick trade, otherwise, you can enjoy the Bendis run without reading those "missing" issues.

    Thanks for the help! I think I'll stick to the Bendis stuff for now.

    Did the Golden Age Cap Omni get delayed? IST doesn't have it for sale, but they say a 3/3 release date.

    I know this gets asked a lot about books being pushed around, can someone share a link to a website that shows these? I know there's one and I can't find it, where it shows original date and then revised date right next to it.
    I need to bookmark that.

    thanks!

    Like Rimmer, I’d like to know where I can find this info without having to ask.

    I’d think diamondcomics.com would be current, but please correct me if that’s wrong.

    Absolutely!

    I always use...

    https://blog.gocollect.com/category/...nded-forecast/

    Then just select which publisher you want to see. Instead of scrolling through all the releases, I just do the "Ctrl" + "F" combo and search the page for whichever title I am looking for.

    It is updated on a weekly basis, so I make it a point to check it every Monday to make sure the titles I am expecting to purchase on Tuesday are actually still scheduled.

    Did anyone notice if X of Swords was available on IST today? I didn't see the direct market variant nor the conventional cover, but the hardcover was announced in the email/newsletter IST now sends.

    Seems like it's delayed to next week, unless both cover versions sold out that fast. I got on at 2:30pm central time and it wasn't there.

    Was curious about that myself after getting the same email saying it arriving this week. CGN has it listed as out of stock, too. I reserved it at amazon when they had it listed for 40% off, but I'd much rather order from IST both for guaranteed condition and the dm cover.

    I think it might be a matter of being delayed. Amazon recently pushed it till April 6th, so with the normal release date difference that probably means there's still another week before it's available to the direct market.

    Has anyone gotten their Uncanny X-men vol 4 Omni yet, more specifically, gotten it from CGN?

    Thank you very much for this, looks like I will be doing the same. I made a spreadsheet the other day to help keep track of these things and with the ever-changing dates, this will make it much easier.
