    Anyone take the plunge and purchase the Dark Phoenix omnibus and see if there are extras in this omnibus that weren't in the 1st two Uncanny omnibuses? Thanks for any info.

    I wonder how popular this Omnibus will be? I think it's a bit of a cop-out that they used the exact same cover as the one on UXM Omnibus Vol. 2.

    I’m expecting this one to hit the bargain bin at some point.

    I don't think I'll even purchase it then.

    Hatchette is out and there’s a ton of Infinity stuff including an omnibus that’s a follow to Gauntlet as well as an Infinity origins omnibus. If someone doesn’t link it by the morning I will.

    There's also a Deadpool Minibus Vol. 3, Avengers Vol. 4 Omnibus and IMO a pointless Infinity by Starlin & Hickman Omnibus (you'll see what I mean).

    I'm absolutely loving Amazing Spiderman omni vol. 2...every issue seems like an event, like an episode of an addictive soap opera. And each issue takes forever for me to read, there's so much dialogue on each page, it's crazy. Plus I read all the letters and replies.

    And I ended up liking Kirby's art much more than I thought I would in vol. 1, but Romitas's art is really raising the bar. Maybe because I grew up reading Spidey in the newspaper every day - I think he did the art in that too? Anyway, this is really far and away so much better than most other comics I've read, it's great.

    Now OTOH, not to be that guy, but I'm getting frustrated with Marvel's release of classic material. I'm mainly interested in Spidey, X-Men, and Daredevil. So I'm anticipating collected editions post Spidey omni 3, X-Men omni 3, and DD post-Miller. Are they saving this stuff back for a reason or is it just luck of the draw? Honestly it's why I've been getting more DC stuff that interests me, they seem to be releasing things with much more of a plan. I'm interested in getting long runs of certain books and it seems like DC is catering to that better.

    Stoked for Avengers 4. Agree 1000% on the Infinity omni. I have all the issues in the Thanos War omni between MMW and other omnis yet still tempted; might need to hand my debit card to the wife and check it out when justified at this point. The Infinity War Omnibus with only select issues of Warlock and the Infinity Watch disappoints me a bit. I was hoping that series would be bundled in more comprehensively across further "Infinity" releases.

    Ditko was the artist for vol 1 not Kirby. About your last paragraph Masterworks have covered all of that material aside from DD and for the post Miller Daredevil they will be closing in on that in the next few years. I don't collect epics, but those issues may be out there already. If you are staying exclusive to OHC/Omnibus then the only data that really does seem to hold true is waiting for a movie/tv(Netflix) tie in. Personally I don't think there will be an X-Men Omnibus 3 despite Masterworks carrying the name on past the end of the first series, but that's just my opinion.

    So it's the Hickman Infinity OHC with Infinity Gauntlet bolted on the front!?!
    WTF!?!
    Agreed, that seems completely pointless.

    On the X side of things: a trade that covers the gap after Onslaught and Trial of Gambit .... IS THAT IT? I am still half asleep but that might be very well the last gap of the never before collected issues of the UXM series?? That can't be true woa.

    Avengers World Complete with Sam and Roberto.

    Will also pick up the Infinity War Omnibus for the minor X involvement.

    And also the Complete collection thing for all the recent to 2000s runs goes on: after Gillen and Carey it is now Milligan. I would have upgraded to OHC naturally but it is a hard sell to upgrade from trades to complete collections.

    Those early ASM issues are quite a "mouthful" but very enjoyable with great art. And yes, John Romita drew the ASM newspaper strips from 1977-1981.

    With regards to Daredevil post-Miller, I believe Marvel will want to issue as many TPB collections as they can such as the Epics before they go ahead and give us an Omnibus or two.

    I'm kind of miffed at the Cable & X-Force: Onslaught! collection - I expected they'd just skip over the Onslaught x-over issues and fill in all the space between Onslaught and Operation: Zero Tolerance. Now we're (probably) going to get two collections with a ton of double dipping for those of us that already collected the events.

    That Thanos Wars Omnibus is basically the collection I invented for the most recent "Most Wanted Marvel Omnibus" poll, so that's cool (well, I included Silver Surfer: Homecoming, too, just for Starlin completeness).

    It's kind of amusing that Excalibur is the one Epic Collection series being released in order. It makes a certain kind of sense, but I'm a little jealous of people that have the ability to read the series they want in order (I'll use this little space to scream into the universe, "Where is my ASM: Gang War Epic Collection?!?!?").
