    I just buy up omnibus and don't even read them. I have my whales that I still have to get, but I'll get them and not read them. I do the same thing with video games and books.

    I do this too but I have seriously slowed down how many books I buy nowadays. I've got at least 6 Amazing Spider-man omnis sitting on my shelves still sealed.

    Thanks Fluffy, that makes me feel a little bit better about it. I "need" to get about 2 or 3 more whales. Then I think (and hope) I'll hang this up. Or like you've done, just slow down. And hopefully someday they'll get read.

    You and Fluffy are not alone. Only today, my wife came into our room designated as the library (over half of it is taken up by my comc and dvd/Blu-ray/cd collection) where I'm currently working from home and asked me how many of these comic books I'd read. She noticed that quite a lot of the Omnibuses were still sealed and asnswered the question herself

    Btw, I only have one white whale left and I'm planning on preordering it in February - Immortal Iron Fist Omnibus.

    "How many of these have you read?" - wife

    I've also gotten that question. Is there a chat where they gather?

    I let her know some yes, some no due to the fact I read the single issues or TPB...which I'm selling on Ebay. Then there is this...

    "So you plan to re-read all these at some point?" - wife follow-up question to retaining Omnis.

    I am also guilty of this. Way to many times I've waited on buying a certain book only to see it disappear altogether. So now I buy books even if I know it might take months (or longer!?) before I will read them.

    Yeah the fear of a book going OOP does not help! I've been annoyed with myself for waiting too long and missing out, which then feeds the "buying and not reading" problem.

    I've had the same conversations with my wife too. "Why are you buying more books if you haven't read the books you've got?". They just don't understand

    The added material not in the original book is superfluous and unnecessary - though it was basically OHC sized instead of Omni sized, so they gotta bulk it up.

    I'll be saving some money. Looks like they will wrap up the main title in 2022 making 10 volumes the longest for any Omni run to date. How many of the satellite books are close to completion?

    Conan satellite books? Well, Savage Sword isn’t even close — the one announced above will bring it to roughly the halfway mark (it ran 235 issues). Conan the King/King Conan will probably run three omnis, is my understanding. (Only one has been solicited so far.) And then after the main Conan book ended, there were a number of miniseries and short-lived series and OGNs in the final years Marvel held the license… hopefully those would all fit into one omni.

    As for other Robert E. Howard characters, Kull is complete after three omnis. All of Solomon Kane’s Marvel material fit into one Solomonibus. Red Sonja’s rights are currently licensed by Dynamite even though the comic version has almost nothing in common with the REH character, so Marvel probably can’t reprint most of that material. (Or even if they can reprint it, they probably couldn’t put her name on the cover or use it in advertising, so they likely wouldn’t bother.) I’ve seen speculation that there might be enough adaptations of Bran Mak Morn and other REH stories to make up an omni, but those are just speculations, and I don’t think Marvel currently had the license for Bran.

    This is like the Omni Thread Clone Saga, where we all find out our wives are clones of the same woman. I've had this conversation with my omni collection AND my video game collection.

    That's... a whole lotta Conan.

    Marvel really is trying to beat the clock on their license expiration...

    I mean, maybe, but I think that’s purely speculation; I haven’t seen or heard any hard evidence to suggest that, other than fans wondering why they’re coming out so quickly. It’d be a pretty short licensing agreement.

    Not to be morbid, but it’s just as likely they want to get as many of them done (and the introductions written) as possible while Roy Thomas and others are still with us. Also, they may be thinking that all the hype and marketing about bringing Conan back to Marvel inevitably has a shelf life, so they want to pump out the omnis while people are still excited (and before they can decide they don’t really need fifteen volumes of Savage Sword of Conan on their shelves).
