    Volume 1 is still affordable and has all the X-Men + New Mutants issues, which are what I care about.
    Fall of the Mutants is a pretty loosely held together 'event', and this is during the period where Claremont tries to keep X-Factor separate from his own stories. It is also when X-Factor starts to get much better (earlier issues are tied down by the original premise, which never clicked and never really made much sense), but not to the extent that you need those issues to read the material from Vol 1. I have the OHC, and will be revisiting the storylines soon as I'm currently re-reading the X-men, but I will probably skip out the material that is in that 2nd TP- its more of a distraction and Claremont is still just doing his own thing at that point in time. Its more difficult when it gets to Inferno to keep the titles separate though.

    Well hey I don't want anyone's head on a platter. But these books retail at $100 - $125. As much as we pay for omnibi we should get a printing without errors and without cheap binding etc... I'd say it is pretty inexcusable. Shouldn't there be a person looking over the final product and saying "Yeah that looks good to ship out for 100 bucks."?

    It is especially bad when the original OHC’s have the correct layout/printing, so the correct file existed. I wonder if the file got corrupted or if the printer had a glitch or something. Either way probably should have been caught on a proofing unless they just went straight to print because it had been published before.

    What do you guys think will be Iron Man's next omnibus?

    Hoping for Bendis or Fraction.

    There are a lot of trades for Bendis' run, so an omnibus would be very covenient.

    I keep voting for Bendis in the omni poll. But no idea if they feel the need to have a moratorium on Bendis-headlined books for a bit since he recently left?

    How was the Bendis Iron Man run, say, in comparison to his 616 “Spider-Man” run? That was a book I wanted to love based on my history with Ultimate Spider-Man, as well as the gorgeous art by Sara Pachelli, but that book couldn’t stay focused and, overall, felt like an afterthought. I sure am tempted by that Marquez Iron-Man art though.

    I quite enjoyed the Matt Fraction Iron-Man run when I read it about a decade back. I’d buy an omnibus and give it another try.

    I have read Invincible and International Iron Man by Bendis. IMO not good. At just 14 issues of Invincible Bendis managed to meander with nothing significant happening, and in the end it was derailed by Civil War 2. The less said about that event, the better. Some say the Ironheart and Infamous are good, but I have not read them. I feel this period of Bendis and marvel as a whole was very weak.

    I'd say Fraction's Iron Man was the best run on that character. A fresh take on the character at the right time.

    I thought the two books he did with Maleev were fine, but the rest did nothing for me, and I thought his last arc prior to shipping off to DC was especially abysmal.

    Anyone planning to get the JMS Spidey Vol 2 Omni, reports are coming in that it's a real mousetrap of a book (glued binding level tight). Buyer beware.

    Not cool. I pre-ordered it. Where did you hear about the tight binding?

    Iron Doom is super cool but looking back it didn’t last very long at all and was almost completely undone, so there’s no point

    What reports ??? glued binding level tight ??? What a fake news. Non Marvel nor DC made omnibuses with glued binding this times.
    Probably all omnibues that were made in Malaysia (BLACK WIDOW, WOLVERINE,JMS Spidey Vol 2) will be print in China, all have a new date 02.09.2020.
