    You mean Vol. 18? Yes, definitely! Jim Lee's core run on Uncanny X-Men is #267-277 so that'll be one of the most popular volumes when it's eventually released. Also, Uncanny under Claremont isn't the easiest series to understand if you read it with gaps in it.

    I like the Frank Cho Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus vol.4 cover very much.
    I will try for the DM version, but for sure will not lose any sleep if I have to
    take the Cho cover.............. unlike the Conan and Captain Marvel regular covers.

    The Thanos books lead to the latest problem. A plot he'd had simmering in those for a while and approved years back was then duplicated in Donny Cates' book (IIRC) and editorial told him that he'd have to change his. Understandably he wasn't happy about that.

    TalesofWonder (TOW) and InStockTrades (IST) are the same company (technically so is DCBS).
    They use (as far as I know) the same distribution center/warehouse - meaning whether you order from one website or the other, it comes from the same place, same stock of books, same packaging, etc...

    Because of these last two DM sellouts, I just went ahead and pre-ordered Avengers v4 DM, Thanos Origins DM, and Spidey v4 DM. If your order is >$100 you get free shipping (vs. IST's free shipping at $50), but if you preorder, you can add a few more books to make it free.
    They don't charge your Credit card until like a week before it ships or something. What I do, is bill it to my CC, and then over time, I work out with them to pay them via Paypal for the amount. You can 'make pre-payments' that way, if you're so inclined. Just email them first, obviously. they're great people. I've ordered from TOW for YEARS, until I realized IST was just as good and a teeny bit cheaper. But for DM covers, Avengers is $52 pre-ordered vs. $50 on release day at IST, but now I'm guaranteed the cover I want. You may not care, but for me, an extra $2 to ensure I get the cover I want is worth it.

    Hope this helps you/others.

    I agree. It's pretty good.

    Thank you! That's not a bad cover, much better than I expected. I'll still try to get the period specific dm cover, but I can live with that. Either way, I can't wait for it to release.

    Honestly, I think that Cho cover would be so much better if it were just Spidey with Gwen and the web backdrop, and everything else erased.

    Great info. I never heard of TalesOfWonder before this thread. Aside from the ability to pre-order and slightly higher do you know of any other differences? I briefly skimmed TOW and it seemed so shockingly similar that it surprises me they are maintained big two different businesses/websites.

    My first impression of the Cho cover was positive but on further reflection, it would seem as if various images had been photoshopped together. The Goblin headshot just seems strange.

    It looks like he didnít read the memo to include the green goblin until after he was finished and than had to add a small box with the goblins face. It doesnít appear like he intended to include him. Overall Iíd be fine with it.

    I couldn't agree more.

    I went ahead and preordered ASM v4. It seems if using PayPal (my CC is linked there) they charge you at checkout fyi
