I suppose it will be a case by case with these upcoming releases as to whether there will be gutter loss or not assuming Leo Group did both Wolverine and UXF.
    Another problem in addition to the gutter loss is when a book doesn’t lay flat and the binding doesn’t lift up to push the center of the book out so it is level with the rest of the page... you get this abnormal uneven curvature that makes the speech bubbles and art hard to discern because the whole center is actually on a curve from the paper curving out from the center instead of laying flat... so you have to kind of move your head to read/see what is going on all down along that curve for every page and it makes for a really shitty reading experience for me personally it gives me a headache.

    Like with scanned comics the art is all flat... and these books are supposed to have a flat page for viewing because that it how you view art Is on a flat surface.

    Imagine going into the louvre and they took the Mona Lisa and wrapped the canvas around a pillar instead of having it lay flat in the picture frame... you would have to walk around the pillar to see the whole painting... well that is what a lot of these books are like in the center... you read from left to right and as you get to the center of the page the art falls off into the gutter in the center of the book... it sucks.

    These books seem okay to some guy on YouTube flipping through them but when you have them in front of you to read... they are a real chore to get through. Looking at that Wolverine Omnibus... there is no way I’m buying that because I couldn’t even read that... and I bet I am not alone. Gem Mint is not reading these Omnibus reprints he is just using them to make videos.

    It is a shame.

    So thereís some quality control issues apparently. Near Mint got a copy with looser binding than Gem Mint it appears. I guess itíll be a roll of the dice.

    It baffles me that Hickman's FF is out of print. The omni v1-2 should be kept in print. Or at the very least, Marvel should put out the complete collections; they just stopped at v2.

    Hickman's SHIELD volumes would make for a great OHC.

    And reprint Secret Warriors omni while they're at it, damn it.

    With Hickman being a superstar and back at Marvel in a huge way, this should be a gimme.

    I missed out on the Hickman FF omnibus collections, so I'll definitely go for them when they reprint.......And they'll come back for sure. Latest possible would be when a new FF film comes about with the MCU.

    They haven't stopped the FF Complete Collections though:

    Vol. 1 came out in August 2018
    Vol. 2 came out in August 2019

    It's almost as if there were a pattern!

    I would e-mail their customer service. Same situation happened to me with Vol 1. They told me it would be back in stock in a few weeks so I checked periodically. It came back eventually. After that, I wasn't gonna mess with Vol 2. Bought that as soon as it came out.

    I agree with you on all things Hickman, but I would guess we won't see any omnibus reprints of FF or Avengers until the 'complete collection' trades are done, which might take awhile.

    And SHIELD already had two slim OHCs. I agree, it would make sense to put all 12 issues into one larger OHC, but technically all 12 issues are already available in oversized format. I just bought them both fairly recently on ebay, both available for good aftermarket prices.

    Similar packaging to the above response. Also, last time I placed an order with them there were books missing. They replaced them but still lack of attention to detail. CGN is nowhere close to IST in terms of quality of packaging or price for that matter.

    I can't speak to IST's packaging, but I have ordered quite a few books from CGN and I have never had a problem.
