    How's that Spider Gwen omnibus stack up against the ohc/deluxe books? Is it the same material collected?

    You're very welcome Joe.

    Yeah, very glad also regarding Wolvie 2. I've been waiting a long time for it. I think I'll go with the BWS Variant cover, although, it would probably fit better as a variant cover to Vol. 1.

    Cool

    What do most folks do when confronted by this dilemma?

    On another note super pumped about the Wolverine vol.2 Omnibus! It'll be a time when I'm fine with the standard cover.
    I think that Vol. 15 will also be my last MMW Daredevil as I have the Omnibuses also. Although, saying that, if they keep producing the MMWs and get to Denny O'Neill's run and still no Epics, I probably will pick them up. Then again, being a Daredevil CE completist and fan, I might just keep collecting the MMWs

    I bought the floppy Daredevil #162 several years ago in order to complete my run of Daredevil but I will be happy to finally get it in a CE. Bizarre Adventures #28 also isn't in the DD Miller/Janson Omnibus but it's in the Elektra Omnibus.

    What exactly is so special about the MMW books compared to a regular OHC? I assume there's something about them, given their high prices...

    Its Marvel's premium format; binding, paper quality, restoration, also ease of reading. The one criticism is that MMW is smaller size than an Omnibus, but if you compare the panels any difference is neglible. In fact, I think the panels for the Magik miniseries were bigger in the MMW than in the Omnibus version.

    A lot more goes into getting a MMW up to the required standard because the efforts done in terms of restoration. You know if you get a modern MMW that these are the best images available, and there will be improvements over previous releases. That's why I'll be replacing all of my X-men OHC from Mutant Massacre onwards with MMW when they get to the same issues. I get that its expensive for collecting everything, but if there's something I really like (like X-men), or something that I can't get elsewhere (Sub-Mariner, original Captain Marvel, Marvel-two-in-One, Marvel Team-up), I've found it well worth the prices.

    Why are the Conan Epics for the original Marvel years so much smaller than every other Epic? This one is a good 200 pages smaller than the others this month.

    Same here, as well as issues 147-157 to bridge the gap between Essential Vol 6 and the Miller run.

    I am really tempted to get that Star Wars Epic.

    I'll be getting that one, but I'm really waiting for v6 (which I presume is) Crimson Empire. Now that Dark Empire is officially solicited, I'm basically waiting on three more DH-era Epics from Marvel (which I presume will be called Menace Revealed 3, Clone Wars 4, and NR 6). At some point, they'll get to Shadow of the Empire in the Rebellion era, too, but that seems a ways off . . .
