    Glad to see Marvel Two in One having a epic collection.
    That have been a comic book that from the very little i read looked like quite fun but had not be able to read it so far.
    So this edition of Marvel Two in One is a must read to me.

    Epic Collection would be great for collecting the whole series, but if it ever gets to Omnibus format, I hope they do targeted collections, e.g. What If....X-Men?, What If...Avengers?, etc

    Would anyone else like targeted collections for these kind of series, or am I in the minority?

    It's not a bad idea, but I don't think there's enough of a specific character or team to make an omnibus.

    Ahh, good point (maybe closer to OHC in some cases).
    I reckon you could definitely get omnibus volumes for X-Men and Avengers, especially if you include the later 2000's issues

    I’m going to be in the Seattle area - any recommendations for comic shops, particularly those that sell the hardcovers we all love so much?

    It depends on what you are after, from my experience you are not going to find much other than what is readily available in print. My last tour around the shops on that side of the Sound I spotted a couple OOP books at The Dreaming, I liked Arcane when they used to be in West Seattle but when I hit the new spot up in Shoreline I really didn't see too much that interested me, but it is still a pretty nice shop. I haven't been over to the East side of the lake in the Sammamish/Issaquah area so I can't comment on those stores. Depending on how mobile you will be down in Lacey about an hour south on I-5 Olympic Comics and Cards has a pretty large selection of all kinds of stuff. It has been about a year since I went into Zanadu in downtown but they used to have a pretty good selection of the standard cover MMW's. Golden Age Collectibles in Pike Place is typically a zoo since it is the middle of a super tourist spot, but if you are hitting the Market you might as well pop in I wouldn't go out of my way though. Also I haven't made it there myself, for some reason I can't explain, Fantagraphics is just south of downtown. While not comic related if you drink beer and you happen across a tap from this little place called Valholl Brewing I have it on good authority they make some tasty beverages
    I brew the beer you drink. What's your super power?

    Around 6 months+ maybe. I reckon you could still find one at a decent price if you shop around and be patient.

    Wow - thanks for this info! I did a google search and checked out some website and the Dreaming was on my list. I’ll check out your other suggestions as well.

    Things that piss me off:

    Marvel basically says --

    -- Buy Spider-Man Epic Collection Volume 1. Old school material. $35 price tag for 500 pages...
    -- Now buy Spider-Man Epic Collection Volume 2. More goodness, and 500 pages! We're raising the price 5 bucks, though to $40.

    And now...

    -- Hey, here comes Volume 3! We're still charging you $40, but now you only get 392 pages."

    WTF Marvel? What are they thinking? Won't be buying this until I see it discounted for like $15. Used to pre-order Epics but lately Marvel's price point and page count are absurdly insulting. They make bank on hardcore fans only.

    If you're gonna gouge fans for stuff that's already been corrected and reprinted elsewhere, don't be pr**ks about it.

    The page count is the page count due to the mapping.

    The price point is the price point across the entire line.

    Not true. A lot of Epics are $40, but there's also a lot that are $35. Quickly looking through some of my volumes, Avengers: Behold the Vision and Judgement Day, ASM: Great Power, Goblin's Last Stand, Ghosts of the Past and Round Robin, and Captain America: Dawn's Early Light, Society of Serpents and Streets of Poison are ALL $35 (I didn't flick through my DD, FF or Iron Man books).

    I think the $34.99 price point is starting to slowly fade away, if recent solicits are any indication. If Marvel can still sell them at $39.99, I'd expect to see all future Epic Collections at this price.

    It won't be long until $50 trade-frickin'-paperbacks are the norm.

    Regarding the Superior Spider-Man OHC's, it's pretty fascinating how quickly these collected editions will fall and rise in price. About a year ago volume 3 was in the bargain bins and going for ten bucks or less. Is it now becoming rare?

    Anywho, this is one series that deserves an omnibus. It's got the near-perfect length, is self-contained enough, and would save me some shelf space compared to the three OHC's. All great reasons.

    Also, while I'm here, let me throw in my twice-a-yearly demand for an Uncanny X-Force omnibus reprint. Literally one of Marvel's fastest selling collections and the movie is hopefully around the corner.

    Omnibus for Superior SM is probably not in the cards, at least for awhile, as they're putting this run in the "complete collection" chunky trades ala Bendis' Avengers of late. Probably 2 (maybe 3?) trades. Doubtful they'd push out an omnibus when those are out, and OHCs already out previously.

    For some reason, Slott's Spider-Man run has received ZERO omnibus run. BUT, just about all of it (maybe all of it?) has been released in OHC. So there's that. Granted, his run is so long, you'd be talking many omnibuses if they wanted to go that route, anyways. But I 100% agree, that the Superior run all by itself would make a perfect omnibus - 1 writer/creator, one complete series/run, perfect amount of issues, etc... Ceste la vie.
