    I guess I'd ask @legion_quest if there is a particular run he's looking for from that era?

    For me it would be classic/original Johnny Blaze Ghost Rider. I feel it's time will still come though. Another would be Moon Knight.
    Those are two examples, yes, but I was mainly thinking more niche stuff, but the crux of the point was more Marvel had to spend money to print these books and they didnt seem to sell as well as perhaps they thought they would, or the collection editors seemed to think they would when talking about it on the MMW forums, which made me wonder if that might have a knock on that those voices may be quieter than others when it comes to future decisions and could lead to more 'obvious' choices being done rather than more niche stuff

So technically it could be 3 omnibuses combining the post Ennis volume with Aaron's in a 3rd volume sort of like an upgrade on the now OOP Punisher Ma by Aaron omni (just like they did an extended Squadron Supreme omnibus no one asked for) but does anyone really need that post Ennis/pre Aaron run in a prestige format for a $125? I know I don't (and thank the gods I have the Aaron omnibus already).
    Agreed; it looks like it will be purely the Ennis material, which is a real shame - adding some one-shots would have sweetened the deal to upgrade on the OHC collection. There is enough non-Ennis material for a 4th "Companion" Omnibus (about 30 issues) to sit between an Ennis vol.2 and the Aaron Omnibus and I would definitely be up for that, although it sounds like I'd be in the minority!

    I'd love a Moon Knight if it was just that 36-issue series and the six issue mini that followed. I could never get into his stories in the Hulk Magazine.

    I think there's some kind of royalty or copyright matter with Ghost Rider, isn't there?

    Gary Friedrich who wrote the early Blaze stories was suing Marvel claiming ownership of the character, or large parts of his backstory but they settled some time back. Google....
    2013 they settled.
    In what could only be considered a victory for Ghost Rider co-creator Gary Friedrich, Marvel Comics has apparently offered a settlement in his case against the publisher for ownership of the character.
    Friedrich's attorney informed a federal judge in New York that the creator and Marvel have worked out a deal to dismiss the lengthy case without having to go to trial. The details of that deal haven't been revealed and the agreement hasn't yet been fully executed.


    In June, the Second Circuit Court of Appeals opened the door to Friedrich having some claim to the character, stating that a work-for-hire contract he signed in 1978 were ambiguous on the topic of copyright renewal. That ruling overturned a judge's ruling stating that Friedrich had no claim to Ghost Rider.
    Friedrich sued Marvel over ownership of the character in 2007, after the first Ghost Rider movie was released.
    I feel Marvel at this point is waiting for a larger media tie-in to do this Omni.

    Ah, got it. Thanks for the update. Isn't GR on the Shield TV show? I don't watch it but I thought I saw that he was on or made an appearance.

    I think eventually this will get collected at some point.

    A bit late, but here you go:

    Thanks for the pic ShooCat. And the winner between the Big 2 is Amazing Spider-Man Vol. 1! I have that 2nd sewn printing also - a beast but the paper is just amazing.

    Yes, he's in the 4th season of Agents of SHIELD (one of the high points), but it's the latest incarnation - Robbie Reyes. spoilers:
    Johnny Blaze makes an extremely brief appearance in one episode (or is it Danny Ketch?)
    end of spoilers

    Yup, they're the same size - It's just that I'm currently reading Conan and I just put the dust jacket back for a quick pic.

    I considered getting the third edition back in the day to replace this monster, but the paper is great indeed and I couldn't bring myself to do it.

    Out of the big two, Invisibles is the biggest in terms of issues collected, right? More than 60 or so.

    They reference Johnny's stunt riding with a couple of posters, so it's probably him.
