    I posted it about a month ago, the Wolverine omni is made in other printing house so the binding will different, I thing it will better than the books for Leo papers where the reprint was made.
    I have noticed that in 2020 that only x-men box set was made in that old printing house.

    So is the UXF omni the last one where we’ll see issues or are there more upcoming releases where there could be issues?

    Gosh that gutter loss is absolutely terrible. I hope the Wolverine isn't as bad. I see mixed opinions on this, with Gem Mint showing it looking pretty bad but Near Mint Condition's copy seems to be fairly good.

    At these prices if binding quality doesn't go back to normal soon there's going to be a major drop in Omnibus collectors. People put good money into these books, the least they can do is maintain quality (especially with prices going up).

    Most "old" ombisues where made in R.R. Donnelley China
    ANNIHILATION OMNIBUS HC NEW PTG
    X-MEN HC SHATTERSHOT
    X-MEN CHILDREN OF ATOM HC BOX SET SLIPCASE

    new reprints are made in Leo Printing or sth like that China:
    UNCANNY X-FORCE BY REMENDER OMNIBUS HC NEW PTG
    DAREDEVIL BY BENDIS & MALEEV OMNIBUS HC VOL 01 and 02 NEW PTG
    X-MEN VS APOCALYPSE TWELVE OMNIBUS HC
    SPIDER-MAN MILES MORALES OMNIBUS HC
    NAMOR SUB-MARINER BY BYRNE AND JAE LEE OMNIBUS HC
    ASTONISHING X-MEN WHEDON CASSADAY OMNIBUS HC VOL 01 NEW PTG

    In Malaysia ones with flat spines :
    AMAZING SPIDER-MAN STRACZYNSKI OMNIBUS HC VOL 02
    BLACK WIDOW OMNIBUS HC
    WOLVERINE OMNIBUS HC VOL 01 NEW PTG

    and that all for now for that new omnibuses that appear or will appear that we know about.

    in my personal opinion we have the quality downgrade for more amount of money at some omnis, now I think that DC omnis at about 800 pages are better than the Marvels because I know what I will get.

    Thank you Xanar for that info.

    Any idea why they shifted away from R.R. Donnelly? Is it related to the virus outbreak?

    If that Uncanny X-Force omni is the kind of quality one should expect from Leo Printing, I'll probably staying away from anything they do.

    As for the ones from Malaysia, I don't mind a flat spine if the book still opens fully, with the Wolverine we have two different accounts, two opposite views, on how well it opens. I'll probably still get that one just because I missed it the first time and really want it, but I'm going to be weary of the flat spines too if they suffers gutter loss.

    In past Marvel made some books in Leo but not so many as now. In think the books form Malaysia will better than Leo because the spine is more flexible so it lifts up with pages and that is biggest problem with this books.

Very disappointing that so called Omnibus “experts” like Gem Mint and Near Mint both reviewed this Omnibus and yet failed to inform their viewers of the (very obvious) shortcomings inherent in its construction.

    The ribbon isn’t a true ribbon at all as the pages aren’t sewn into it but merely like glued on top of it or something.
    I have the exact same issue with the two Deadpool by Daniel Way volumes, which - surprise surprise - are also printed by Leo. I posted pics of it recently over at the Marvel Masterworks Forum (hopefully it is ok to link to - it is located here).

    What you said about Leo's omnis is right on the money. The overall construction is shoddy, the glue they have used seems cheap and nasty. The signatures have come straight out of it. I'll let the pictures speak for themselves.

    I've got a cheap shelf. Is there a way I can keep some of the racks from sagging?

    My solution was to use a thin piece of wood or solid foam on each shelf after the first. I'd place them at the centre and stack them directly above each other and they'll lean on eachother, supporting the shelves while not taking up much space or effort.

    The same problem was with MILES MORALES ULTIMATE SPIDER-MAN OMNIBUS, Deadpool & Co. Omnibus, Zomnibus and all were made in R.R. Donnelley.

    One person from the Masterworks Forum posted this:

    My Miles Morales omni has a seriously misaligned dust jacket, but not like it was offset when applied, more like itís designed for a bigger book so HAS to spillover past the spine.

    This is exactly the same situation with my copy. It also has some gutter loss but is readable but that doesn't mean I'm a 100 % happy with it. I haven't opened my DD Bendis Vol. 1 yet.

    I check my Miles Morales omni and I have the same situation.
    I manage to upgrade this books from Leo with my "professional tools" and glue and have less gutter loss.

    My Captain America by Waid Omni did this as well. Which is also a Donnely book.

    I plan on picking up the Wolverine and Silver Surfer Omnis when released too.But this hope for the best,expect the worst talk is disappointing.

    That's right next month we get Silver Surfer, and also She-Hulk by Byrne. I hope they sorted this out and that we get a good printing for both.
