    That is like 50 pounds worth of books about I think...

    With a shipment that big do you think it would all be good in one ? Do they use packing peanuts or like to foam pads that IST sometimes uses?

    Also if I order these books tomorrow when as close as possible to the best of your knowledge can I expect my card to be billed?
    I've never had a damaged item come from DCBS; they're the same company as IST so they use the same packing materials.

    No idea when they'd bill you, seeing as the release dates can vary so much for collections (delays, cancellations, etc.)

    They could release those 10 issues with some other stories from that period. There's actually enough of them for two big trades, so there's quite a few options.
    Oh I would have thought they would have at least included a One Moment in Time since it is canonically the beginning of Brand New Day

    My guess on the first two The X-Men books is that they will get reprinted "someday", probably not for years though as they chose to reprint all the Uncanny and skipped those two for this reprint run.

    The thing is is that we donít know that they skipped them because of the Covid disruption. Maybe they were planning to get to them soon, they could be coming in the next few solicitation announcements...

    Might be strategy on Marvel's part to wait on reprinting the SA omnibuses that aren't highly acclaimed / didn't sell too well. The Omnibus market is alot larger now, so if they can get people more invested/purchasing more in a particular line via reprints of the acclaimed/popular stuff first, then that creates a larger potential buyer base for the SA reprints (most people tend to be completists at heart).

    Like I said, they can still do it. Look at the history of the whole project, which is a hundred issues plus buttload of extras of a polarizing era of Spider-Man already collected in full before. The sales weren't that good from the beginning, but they managed to reach volume 4 with Brand New Day title. What was supposed to be volume 5 eventually came out as a stand alone book (which I think might have also have been considered the Venom movie tie-in, although now I'm not sure, because the title is not as explicit as Spider-Man 2099 collection from the same period). And with that they reached The Gauntlet so they could do a new number one and get a sales boost (which they did). And with that in turn they're so close to the end I'm positive something will come out eventually. Maybe not right away, because with what is going on they had to delay many books and their schedule is full enough through April.

    I definitely have more faith in them than I would have in the other publisher.

    So I take it the Uncanny X-Men Omni 3 has been delayed? According to my ToW pre-order it says december (originally it was todays date).
    Not really a big deal though, but this is my first time doing business with them and I would have liked to see what they charge for shipping considering there are other books I would like to pre-order fairly soon as well.

    I usually don't do pre orders, but saw the Thunderbolts omni on DCBS so had to order it. Been waiting so long for this that I refuse to take chances with getting it.

    I've had issues with ToW too. I'd never ordered from them from before; usually used IST. Once comics started shipping regularly again around June/July and new books started disappearing way too fast from IST, I decided to use ToW to just pre-order everything I wanted through the end of the year, just to have peace of mind. A large order, mind you. So far, they've told me three books are out of stock (even though they were pre-ordered). I opted to get a refund and buy them from Amazon instead (for zero discount, sigh). However, it's been a couple weeks and the refunds haven't been issued, and my other emails with questions haven't been answered. I'm willing to chalk this up to COVID related logistical issues. But has anyone else had similar issues?

    For the order from which the 3 books had gone out-of-stock, they charged my card a month ago for the full amount though.

    I'm afraid which other pre-ordered books will go out of stock at ToW. I'm mainly concerned with the UXM omni v1-3 and Busiek Conan.

    I never really looked at it in that way.

    I never really paid attention to the hoopla around Brand New Day because it was a bit before my time and when I did start reading Spidey it was Ultimate Spidey.

    True Marvel does tend to follow through on their collected editions unlike DC which will drop it out of nowhere (I'm looking at you Nightwing *cries softly*)

    Likewise I don't either or get large hardcovers/Omni from Amazon but I'm doing something I very, very, very rarely do and get an Omni from Amazon.

    Just added the Defenders omni to my order. I'm just a sucker for this older material. Now just gotta free up some money for the JLA Omnibus.

    I wish I could buy everything I want. It is really hard to stick to a $300 monthly DCBS budget. I get bored and start researching the other books and then I want them too.

    Anyone else having / had similar issues with TOW/IST/DCBS now or before covid? Do they have a phone number to call? Just been radio silence for weeks from them
