    Why would they not? The items would have been ordered and invoiced, just delayed in dispatch. I guess it's possible though, as that is an over 50% drop off

    It's possible that people bought into the hype of MOKF, thinking of all the people saying it would never get done, but once they read it they were immediately turned off. I like it, but it hasn't aged well. It's not really an acquired taste. You kind of have to be used to the comics of that era. I can see an extreme drop off on volume 2 for that.

    Yeah. I think Marvel are going to regret not doing this as two big ones. By the time we get to vol4.....those wont be pretty numbers.

    New JAN solicits out today, as far as I know it contained nothing we didn't already know via Amazon fish or the recently announced Marvel Monster omnibus and Amazing Spidey v3 omnibus.
    Looks like they're pushing some monster stuff in the monthlies as well. You'd think if you're going to do monster themed stuff you would, oh I don't know, have them come out NOW in OCTOBER near Halloween, vs much later. But I digress. I'm sure there's a reason they couldn't do it around halloween.

    BTW I think based on Amazon there's at least one DC horror / monster HC out there, for the future, so I guess everyone's jumping on the horror/monster bandwagon. After reading all about that Monsterbus, I'll admit I got real excited for a few minutes, and then realized I would never, ever read it. So it's not for me. It would be really cool to flip through, especially from a historic perspective, though. I view GA and Atlas titles as that - a window into history, but just not my cup of tea as far as reading. Silver Age I can handle, albeit in smallish amounts, but GA especially, it's quite a slog. Anyways, cheers.

    That's true. I just don't like omni's that are less than 600 pages unless the full series are less than that.

    Damn that was quick. I'm still hoping Old Man Logan and Doctor Strange get OHC's
    We need better comics

    Strange will get an Omni eventually, Marvel has some weird obsession with Jason Aaron in Omnibus format.

    I'm stoked for the Daredevil by Brubaker/Lark reprints. I'd wait for both to be released to order them in one go, but if ASM Vol. 2 was any indicator, I might need to jump on these day one before they go OOP.

    To be honest, I never really liked the Bendis volumes in omnibus format. I found the earlier OHCs (of which Vol. 1 was Smith/Quesada) much more appealing, even when they took more shelf space.

    I might be biased (him being my paisano and all that) but I really really like the Ramos cover.

    Not sure why he is so devisive. I mean sure, he's not "house" style marvel, but whatever. I've always liked his stuff, and his work on the new Champions series looks great.

    I'll probably get the Brubaker omnibus. I stopped reading after Bendis left but I've heard good things. Plus, if I remember correctly, Bendis left DD in a place that would make the follow up interesting.

    I just finished a read through from Smith to Brubaker, and Brubaker was far superior to Bendis IMO. Brubaker's handling of where Bendis left Murdock was a highlight of the read, very well handled.

    Marvel needs to up their OHC game. 70+ titles in All New All Different Marvel and probably only a fraction will get OHC. Like ten series....which is a shame because some of the stuff that got lost in the mix has beautiful art made for big pages...
