    I'm kind of disappointed with the whole Dawn of X premise. Its convoluted, makes pretty much all of the X-characters smarmy and dislikeable, and the overall premise just does not add up. I don't see how any of the events with Moira/Xavier/Magneto could happen in light of the retcon.

    Also- the killing off of characters- if one of your loved ones died, and the technology was there to clone/implant memories, you'd still mourn for your loved one. That person would still be dead- I don't get how the characters could ever be so blase about it.

    I wish there had been a tighter focus for this series- and maybe an actual 'theme'.

    I do. You miss the oversized art but other than that, you still get the premium build and paper that you got on the older Marvel OHC/Omnis, and the restoration is usually top notch.

    So I've got 6-8 items I'm eyeing for the current DCBS pre-orders, spread over October, November, January, and December. How does that work, do I make 1 big order with all those items but they don't ship until the last item is released but they hold my stuff for me from the previous months? Or do they go ahead and factor in the 4 different shipping charges automatically and send me 1 shipment each month?

    I figure it's quicker to get a reply here than it is to email them and there are only a few days left until FOC.

    DCBS offers weekly or monthly shipping a $7.50 per shipment.

    I would be most cost effective to order all at once and pay the flat rate, and then select the single (monthly) shipping option. You'll pay a grand total up front, and receive the books as they become available.

    Thanks for the reply. So i placed my order as one large one, 6 omnibus. Right now they have the single shipping charge. Do they bill my card another $7.50 each time a box goes out for those few months, or does that $7.50 cover all the separate deliveries since it's on one order? Sorry if you answered this and I didn't grasp what you were saying.

    This is my big issue with it as well. They may be replacing the dead characters with exact duplicates, but it's not them. The originals are dead. Dead and gone.

    Ans how come they've survived everything that can be thrown at them for 60 years - but now that they can conveniently be brought back, they just so happen to die on a string?

    I agree with the clone/duplicate issue. Whenever we see clones of secondary characters that get killed off, no one really cares or they are treated as collateral damage. But when someone like Black Widow is "cloned" back, we're expected to (in time) treat her as the real McCoy.

    I do like to see the licensed material be collected. It gives me hope I'll get an Indiana Jones omnibus soon. It looks like there's enough material left for a volume 4. Assuming the Predator rights are straightened out, there should be 2 volumes of Predator and 2 volumes of Alien v Predator.

    Thanks. I ordered the DD MMW that just released. Excited to learn it has the original colors as opposed to the omnibus. That really is top notch.

    That's how she came back? Well I'll be damned.

    Now to get the Marc Spector: Moon Knight series, in two volumes please Marvel, and that will make for a nice MK run up through 2010!!
