    Yea, CGN always sends me books in newspaper and plastic bags, but the books are never damaged. I just ordered Daredevil Bendis Omnibus Vol. 2 from them because I'm worried that Instocktrades won't get more in stock. Vol. 1 is gone now again too from Instocktrades. I always prefer Instocktrades, but when I've had to use CGN for any reason, they've been very good.

    Their prices aren't as good, but there is nothing wrong with their packaging, and they have really good customer service. I once ordered a book from them, and 6 months later finally took it out of the shrink wrap to find some of the pages were not cut (still connected at the top.) They refunded my money despite it being half a year since I had gotten it.

    I will amend what I said slightly. Yes, the customer service was good and resolved the issue I had with my order to my satisfaction. All I can say is I have ordered from IST a lot and never did I have missing items. I have ordered from CGN twice and I had missing items. As to packaging, yes there was no damage and it's good packaging but again you're up against IST which has exemplary packaging. So, its going to be hard for CGN in a direct comparison. If we were only talking about CGN, I could recommend it but when its a choice between the two, it's always going to be IST. The only instance in which I would order from CGN is when they have their clearance sales where stuff can be up to 80% off which is when I placed my orders.

    CGN. Granted they don’t use the foam pouches like IST, but I used to use them before switching to IST and never had any shipping damage. The only reason I wound up switching to IST consistently was CGN stopped the 50% discount on Omnibuses on release week.

    I've had good luck from CGN also, always well packaged. Tales of Wonder as well, though I think their inventory is the same as IST. On eBay, check out "DHeader", I've had good service from them and they often have large supplies of almost-OOP stuff and clearance (might be a Marvel liquidator?).

    Probably so. The others are likely correct about them not coming out until the Complete Collections releases are finished, so you figure with a probable FF film in a couple years, the timing's right. It's all speculation, of course.

    I'll patiently wait, but if they do the Hickman FF omnibus reprints quicker than we think, I'll be a happy man.

    Thanks for the tip. They had the Silver Surfer Epic When Calls Galactus which I’ve been looking for.

    I ordered the Remender Uncanny X-Force Omnibus
    I usually wait for IST to have it, but did not want to risk it
    Selling out because of my procrastination habit. Put a extra book
    Or more in and take out and repeat and a few days go by and
    Good bye one book I really wanted .So I just ordered the one book
    and payed a little extra.

    Has anyone compiled a list that compares the Dark Horse omnibus paperback collections of their Star Wars comics to the reprint/rebranded Epic(I think?) paperback collections that Marvel has been putting out? Specifically for the Legends/Expanded Universe stuff. I want to compare what I have to what I'm missing. Thanks!

    Thanos Annual #1, Thanos: The Inifinity Revelation, Thanos Vs. Hulk #1-4, Thanos: The Infinity Relativity, Infinity Entity #1-4, Thanos: The Infinity Finale, Guardians of the Galaxy: Mother Entropy #1-5, Thanos: The Infinity Siblings, Thanos: The Infinity Conflict and Thanos: The Infinity Ending

    I don't know about a comparison, but I use this wiki page - the only stuff in Epic format that isn't from DH are the Newspaper and Classic Marvel ones. The rest are DH reprints (you have to scroll down a bit to get to "Star Wars":
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marvel...ic_Collections

    They haven't gotten to either Dark Empire or Crimson Empire, which I know got nice DH collections, but I think they've covered almost everything else. The chronology for the Epic Collections is

    Old Republic
    Rise of the Sith
    Menace Revealed
    Clone Wars
    Empire
    Rebellion
    New Republic
    Legacy

    Awesome, glad to help. I've got some clearance titles from them when eBay has their occasional coupons, helps with the shipping costs at least.
