    Just curious - how can a consumer best let Marvel know that an omnibus should be reprinted?

    I received the first Fantastic Four omnibus last year as a Christmas gift, and I adored it. I wanted to dive into the next volume, which includes the first appearance of Galactus, but Fantastic Four Omnibus Volume 2 has been out of print for quite some time. Tweets and emails have gone unanswered. I'm hoping they aren't going to wait until the next F4 movie... who knows how long that'll be.

    Ok cool. You'd recommend the reprint?

    If you like bendis and/or the ultimate universe and/or miles Morales I recommend it. Also if you don't have problems with a story about a replacement for Peter.
    I think it's a great series

    PM me if you get the chance. I have a copy but I don't really have any interest in keeping it. I'm willing to either trade for another omni or sell it for $15-20.

    I just recently ordered The Mighty Thor: Heroes Return Omnibus Vol 1 online, and I was a little perturbed when it arrived. After taking it out of the box, I noticed it was without its plastic sealing. As a result, there was some minor damage to the dust jacket, varying from small scuffs to slight creases on the edges--nothing too serious, however. I ordered this "new" from a large bookstore retailer, so I'm quite confused as to why it came without its plastic sealing. Did I get their shelf copy? Is there a chance I could get it replaced with a sealed copy? Or did this omnibus just not get factory sealed for whatever reasons? Any insights would be appreciated.

    If this was indeed a new copy, it 100% should have come shrink wrapped. Where did you order it from? I would request a replacement.

    Do you guys and girls order pretty much anything you can afford that slightly appeals to you or do you curate your collection?

    I'd say I curate heavily, and perhaps to a fault. I get rid of books I love would rather keep in the service of shelf space and the clean feeling I get from owning few possessions. It's really a double-edged sword. Recently sold off my New X-Men omnibus because I no longer considered it was one of my top 5-10 runs and had to make space for other books. It burned. But I can't fight that feeling of being overwhelmed when I have too many books.

    I had hundreds of collected editions. If I enjoyed a run I would buy it. It was insane and I was building an unreadable collection. I felt like my friend with over a thousand Bluray movies. Was he gonna watch 3 movies a day for a year and still not see all his movies? I switched to digital when deep sales allowed me to buy basically all the books I liked for under 1-5 dollars each and sold off all the I liked that run books keeping only the read over and over again true loves.

    My wallet and home are happy for the reduction. The only collected editions I buy physically at the moment is the Legion of Superheroes Omni's. I do enjoy reading on a tablet though and read a lot more stuff I don't physically own then books I do. I feel like if my house burned down I could just buy a new kindle fire and not lose much. It's freeing in a way.

    I basically went through the same and it's indeed very freeing. Also I felt like because I'm collecting comics that's all I can do (space limit, cause my flat isn't the biggest and budgetary limits too). But now that I don't really collect but rather just pick up things when I feel like I have more options, less pressure (as soon as I feel FOMO I pull the breaks and focus my attention elsewhere) and more joy when I actually buy something and not just add to an ever growing pile.

    I curate. I went digital several years ago for monthlies, and I use various ComiXology sales for discounted trades. My shelf of collected editions is basically reserved for my all-time favorites — stuff that, if my digital library were to be erased tomorrow, I’d still have. So for example I’ve got physical collections of Busiek’s Avengers, then digital for what came after/the Bendis stuff, then physical collections of Hickman’s run. Then back to digital for Waid and Aaron.
