    Considering getting the Hulk omni though I don't own any other Hulk material. But I remember reading some of these issues back when, probably because Mcfarlane was drawing them.

    Otherwise, yeah I also saw that Daredevil by Bendis omni is gone from IST. I placed my order on Thursday but it hasn't been picked and scanned yet, hope I still get it. Will IST still honor the price while awaiting a restock or will they just cancel it? Never had that happen before.

    Yeah I might do that for those select few titles.

    Is Krisis still around?

    Yeah, Krisis hasn't really been around for a while. He suddenly popped up some time ago with a post as per what "doolittle" posted. His knowledge is missed.

    From my experience, they will absolutely honour it. As Omnibus wrote, they will probably get some more copies in.

It is and Epic Collection so why didn't they just collect Avengers issue 355-375 and get the whole story in one trade? They put the beginning of the Gathers Saga (issues 355-357) in a previous Epic Collection for some stupid reason. This new collection only has issues 360-366 of the Avengers proper series so to get the full Gathers Saga instead of it all being in one big collection it will be spread over 3 different collections if they collect the end of the story at all.

    What a sloppy mess.
    New Defenders Epic Collection had the first issue of the run in the previous EC... Really annoying if you just wanted that group collected.

    I'm not a big fan of Hulk. I've just never found him too interesting, or his character too deep. I want to like him though and I've been hearing Peter David's run was about as good as it gets.

    If anyone cares to - can you convince me why this run is so good?

    Peter David explores the mental and emotional aspects of Banner and the Hulk. Previous stories made the changes in the Hulk a result of outside physical factors. He makes the case that Banner has multiple personality disorder caused by his abuse as a child. The MPD manifests as different versions of the Hulk. The continuing story line is that Banner instead of trying to cure himself of the Hulk, has to heal his own mental scars to become healthy. Banner starts the story with multiple parties after him, unsure of who to trust. At this point he turns into the Gray Hulk, a weaker but more cunning version. When Banner experiences, loss, anger and frustrations, the Green Hulk emerges. When Banner makes an effort reconcile his fractured mind, he emerges as the Professor Hulk version.

    The entire run is how Banner is the main character and the Hulk is the manifestation of his mental state.

    There's also ongoing supporting cast, old and new villains, and PAD's signature humor style.

    If that's an approach that sounds interesting, give it a try. If it sounds meh, let it pass.

    I'm currently going through Peter David's stuff in the Epic Collections and have the stories fresh in mind. As Rincewind mentions, David's Hulk is probably deeper than anything any other writer has done with the character. There's a lot going own with the psyche of Bruce Banner - and David doesn't shy away from some controversial topics in his writing, either.

    That said, he has some big misses every now and then as well. Don't expect *everything* he wrote to be pure gold.

    Agreed. I ordered mine last TUE and it hasn't been picked yet. I think a more recent example of this happening with them (IST at least) was the Batman Synder/Capullo Omni. It was in stock day of release, instantly disappeared, reappeared like a week later, disappeared again IIRC, and then finally seems to be in stock with all backlog filled.

    IST/TOW/DCBS customer service has always been very good to me, so I have no worries about it. If it takes them another few weeks to get more in stock, I'm fine with that.

    Order is in on IST for the Conan and Hulk omnis. Not making the same mistake as I did last week waiting on the Daredevil omni only to have it go out of stock.

    Liked the Turner regular cover
    But decided to go wth the McFarlane cover
    Hoping the Turner cover will be under the McFarlane

    I was not a fan of the variant cover. I am sure it will have better resale value but I thought the regular cover was much nicer to look at.

    I like both covers
    McFarlane showed a more detailed
    Hulk while Turners is lost in shadow
    (Which ironically is why it is a great cover
    When you add in the back ground)

    The regular cover is cool but the McFarlane cover is iconic to me. I really like how it looks with the new shading in the picture of it on IST.

    Ordered that one and the Conan 3 variant cover as well.

    Is the Immortal Hulk collection an OHC or just a standard HC?
