    I already read the JMS stories in Amazing Spider-Man,and i even have in Hardcover the first five stories of Amazing Spider-Man by him.
    So while i will be getting eventually the ASM Omnibus by JMS there are many others stories that i have read as well but i want to collect first.As Spider-Man Omnibus 3 (That is OOP) and the upcoming Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus 4.

    I'll be getting that one, and I've never read his run on Spidey before, so it'll be a treat.

    I will be getting it, especially since this is where I got spotty on my ASM and eventually went into tpb. Which itself became non-consecutive getting only the most popular/interesting runs that I saw garnered lots of conversation.

    So someone who read Stracynski's spidey run - would you recommend 2 omnibus full of his work?

    His run is my favourite Spidey run. I would recommend it. The only story I find abhorrent is One More Day.

    The other two stories which draw a lot of criticism are ‘Sins Past’ ( which is the last arc in Vol 1 ) and ‘The Other’. I personally like ‘Sins Past’ and ‘The Other’ is just a bit of a mess, but nothing insulting.

    There are some great stories to be in Vol 2. JMS’ civil war tie in is one of the better ones and has some great Peter/MJ/Aunt May content and ‘Back In Black is a highlight.

    Missed out on the Busiek/Chen Iron Man omni a few years back, but I'm pleased Marvel is putting out smaller trades to collect the run again. Finally got around to ordering volume one yesterday. Traditionally I don't read much Iron Man so the competition isn't fierce when I say it's my all-time favorite run on the title, but it also doubles as one of my favorite books of the 1990s.

    Thanks to Busiek's Heroes Return work I'm of that very specific era where I see Captain Marvel in comics and in her own movie and think, "Oh, they mean Warbird."

    Found these while browsing. I hate white spines on Omni's.

    I'll never understand why a collections dept doesn't understand the desire by the customer to want uniformity on the spine.

    That said I ordered the book and am excited about the contents....not the spine.

    I’ll just make a custom dust jacket.

    I’ll be really happy to have this content, collected this way.

    I actually quite like the white spines. It would seem that the white spines start from the ASM Vol. 2 (1998) period onwards i.e. Tangled Web Omni, Superior Foes Omni whereas Omnis covering ASM Vol. 1 (1963) have the dark spines.

    Mine won’t for long. Lol.

    I am going to match it up to the silver age and Micheline & McFarlane omni spines.

    Good observation by the way. So far that rule works. Wonder about the Byrne Omni that is coming. The bulk of the material in that is from Vol 2 so if your rule is correct, I’d say it should have a white spine.

    Just to give a heads up, the Avengers Hickman Omnibus Vol. 2 is officially OOP (it went out of stock at IST literally while I was placing my order yesterday) but there is one copy on Amazon.ca that is right at MSRP. After that, event he used copies are high, so act fast if you need it. I was lucky to snag one from Amazon.

    It's funny how his most reviled Spidey stories are going to be the ones to close both omnis of his run: Sins Past for Vol. 1 and One More Day for Vol. 2
