    They have reprinted vol 2's in the past, but never a volume 3. For something like Spidey or Uncanny, I would think a reprint is as close to a 'sure bet' as you can get. But look at Avengers, biggest movie of all time (or 2nd?) and vols 3 and 4 linger still.

    Hopefully they're learning, and at least on the BIG titles, they'll print more copies of those omnibuses so they stay in print longer.

    Yes ok not every book but how about you try to keep the 2nd and 3rd Omnibus from your most popular character in print when they clearly sold enough to warrant a 4th one? These 4 Omnibus contain the first 150 issues of their most popular character from his most popular series. This isn't just any character or any series. Like i said i had to pay extra for the second Omnibus and i almost gave up searching for it and then i would have never bought the third and fourth ones either. Now i am glad and happy i have all 4 but i can completely understand who are frustrated about it. Yes i know they have reprinted the second one and it sold out and went up in price very quickly.

    Thanks Raffi.

    And I think I'll go ahead buy the Return tpb of She-Hulk by Byrne.
    Being the second worst value omni by Marvel is pretty funny though.

    I find it odd to have the cover not say BLACK WIDOW on it at all. I get it's the cover to Marvel Fanfare. Can we keep the art and ditch the MF logo and replace with Black Widow?

    That's undoubtedly a placeholder image, albeit an odd choice for one.

    Amazing Spider-Man didn’t have Amazing Spider-Man on it, it has Amazing Fantasy. So maybe that’s the route they’re going?

    That's a good point! I hadn't considered that; there's definitely a p It's possible that will be the cover, then.

    And presumably they didn't want to use her literal first appearance on the cover, because it was this:

    That cover of TOS makes Widow look like she's like 50 years old. ha ha.

    I just read that they are ending the Star Wars main book in DEC. it's the breaking point where Empire Strikes Back would then take over. I sure hope they continue (I'm guessing with another new #1...) after Empire. They spent a lot of money on SW, it'd be a waste to let it sit and not have a series. Although, I do understand you're dealing with a really small sandbox on that one, but look what Aaron and Gillen did, especially with the Stormtrooper squad, etc... there's lots of stories to tell, just need the right writers willing to dig deep, get approvals from whomever for story arcs, etc...

    I hope they make another omnibus of the SW material after Aaron. I would say they could do a Gillen one, but once he left, there's probably not enough for a 3rd omni (I could be wrong) so maybe they'd throw everything left into one omni, if they do one at all. They seem to have stopped the OHCs cold.

    And I'd love to see a Doctor Aphra omnibus - they released a vol 1 OHC and then nothing. Aphra is such a good book, whether it was Gillen or now Spurrier. That book deserves an OHC continuation at least.

    I'm glad that reprints are happening. This should be a clear indicator to someone in the Marvel Collections Dept that not all OOP material need be redone. Demand isn't there.
    Who in the Dept convinced those in charge this reprint above others(like some vol.2 &3s in other lines) was needed???? Based on what?

    That would actually be hilarious if they used that Tales of Suspense cover for the Black Widow omni!

    Either Marvel has no faith in a She-Hulk Omnibus or this will be the new normal in the future.

    I'd bet new normal. The OHC prices are kind of nuts already

    Funnily enough, the Silver Surfer Omnibus reprint is now $0.1736 per page due to the price increase. That makes it the worst value omni they've ever released.

    So they've solicited 2 of their 3 worst value omni's in the space of a month or so.

    If this had been an appropriately priced $75 book, Marvel would probably sell twice as many copies. But if they're more concerned about dollar share than units sold, I guess this is the best (greediest) way to go... *shrug*
