    The one I'm not surprised by is the Spider-man by Byrne Omni. That run of books is not viewed with any fond nostalgia and seemed an even odder choice as a collection despite being Spider-man than some others they'd surprised us with(Hellstrom for example).
    I agree 100%; I think that Timely number is good (well, for today's times, it's good) and bodes WELL for them to continue these really niche collections. I think we can safely say now that the Atlas MMW line if officially dead and this is the way things are trending at Marvel - these compilation omnibuses. Not a bad thing at all. ;-)

    Those 70’s Bronze Age Marvel covers
    Have become so iconic. Something about
    How each has a general uniformity and than
    A huge space in the middle where a
    Scene and some wording is placed to
    Attract the reader.
    I believe all the major publishers like
    Marvel and D C and Archie and Harvey
    Heavily relied on heavily promoting
    The company name and title of the
    Book and a small icon of the character
    Because comics would basically be stacked
    On each other on a shelf or spinner rack
    And they wanted the exposed 1/4 top of the book to
    Scream out to the reader “Here I am.... pick me”.

    I have 1 question about this new IMMORTAL HULK HC VOL 02. Is it oversized like Vol 01 OHC which got released some time ago?

    I posted this in the General Omnibus thread, but I think it might be more relevant here:

    Does anyone know the chances of UXM Vol 2 Omnibus being reprinted?

    I'm thinking about just biting the bullet and paying $175+ on ebay for it. But I did see that they have the Dark Phoenix omnibus pretty cheap on Amazon. Is there a significant difference between the two?

    They've just announced a reprint of Volume 1 so I guess the chances are high that volume 2 will be reprinted.

    In my experience, almost everything gets a reprint eventually. Exceptions may be those books with licence issues. For instance, with the Conan licence being back at Marvel, chances are very low that we'll see a reprint of Colossal Conan. But with Marvel having been alerted to the market for OOP omnibus and 2020 being the year of the reprints, I'd say wait.

    Personally, I could have saved a ton of cash if I had been more patient. Almost all the whales that I spent over cover on have been reprinted by now. Worst part is: haven't even gotten to reading most of the whales I bought at inflated prices. Might as well just have waited...

    Uncanny X-Men Omnibus Vol 2 & The Dark Phoenix Omnibus are completely different...

    Uncanny Vol 2 collects issues 132-153 plus extras. Dark Phoenix only collects issues relevant to that story (97-105, 107-108, & 125-138) plus extras.

    So not only are you getting overlap with Uncanny Vol 1, but you're going to be missing 15 issues from Uncanny Vol 2.

    I would say the chances of a re-print are pretty high. Just a guess, but maybe the second half of 2020 or early 2021.

    Fair enough. Actually, thinking about it now, I've already read most of the issues in that collection. I just really enjoy that portion of Claremont's run and would love to have it in physical form. I think I'll wait to see if it'll reprint later next year, and if not, I'll probably just buy it over the cover price.

    The earlier volumes tend to get reprinted consistently (Hulk, Iron Man, etc... being exceptions) but anything past 2 requires great patience. I'm still waiting for a reprint of Uncanny X-Men V. 3.

    For people who have been collecting/following Omnibuses for awhile, was the Iron Man Vol 1 Omnibus a slow seller? I read that Hulk inventory lingered for years (only in the past few years being finally cleared), but I'm not sure about Iron Man.

    The secondary market prices for both is expensive, but not as high as other OOP books. And since neither has gotten reprints even though they are *really* old (2008), I guess it is because of low popularity/sales?

    It's crazy what some books go for but nice to see Marvel reprinting some of them. I'm throwing my Uncanny X-Men vol.3 on eBay so I can buy some of them, too many books coming out that I want.
