    It's just a shame it[Infinity War Omni] doesn't include Warlock and the Infinity Watch #1-6, in particular that #1 wasn't in the Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus which would have been nice as it was the aftermath.
    I'll for sure be getting these. I'm also disappointed it doesn't have W&TIW issues. Is it possible with Adam teased for GotG3 movie that the collections dept is holding that out for inclusion in a full on Infinity Watch Omni??

    Marvel finally dipping it's toe into(non pre-announced) volume 4 terrain with Avengers Omni volume 4!! Super pumped to get this as it takes the title up through issue #119!!
    I'll also get the Conan Omni with BWS cover.
    Daredevil Masterwork vol.13

    Hoping that when solicits get up through May that the collections department will use this last Avengers 4 film to perhaps get us the following:
    Invincible Iron Man vol.3
    Captain America vol.3
    The Incredible Hulk vol.2
    "Freedom is the right of all sentient beings" - Optimus Prime

There's a certain repetitiveness, especially as they move towards Infinity Crusade, that just didn't do it for me. As an aside, it's one of the reasons I like the OHC series Starlin is doing now w/Thanos - the stories are really out there and a little off-kilter instead of just another bad guy needs to collect the Powerful MacGuffin so s/he can shape the universe to his/her will.

    If you're going to move from Gauntlet to War, I'd recommend picking up the IG Aftermath trade - it'll cover everything Warlock and Surfer related that bridges the two omnibii.

    Thanks for the tip Bob. It'll come in handy. It still is annoying not to have those Warlock and SS issues oversized in the Omnibuses.

Still, it would have been nice to just get one collection that fits in between Onslaught and O:ZT (at least for me since I own both OHCs).

    I'm still waiting for a third omnibus for X-Force, too: Cable 9-20, X-Force 32-43 + Annual 3, New Warriors 45,46, Excalibur 82, X-Factor 106, and Wolverine 85. That, plus a nice Cable and the New Mutants OHC would really make my shelf look fantastic . . .
    I like your thinking. I am so looking forward to the next Volume of Cable X Force.

    Right, that would be excellent.

    If the Collections Department doesn't see now as the "last" best chance to put out these volumes that some deem questionable sellers then I don't know when we might ever get them. I don't even buy the argument the Collections Department thinks of a factor like "questionable seller". If they did there is no way we'd have a Marvel 1990s First Omni or Marvel Now Omni to mention a few.
    I fully believe if they put out those solo Avenger volumes mentioned above they would easily sell better than say, Venomnibus(700 units, first month) to mention a recent Omni that is getting a volume 2 followup so soon. Meanwhile those volumes have sat idle for years now.

If you are staying exclusive to OHC/Omnibus then the only data that really does seem to hold true is waiting for a movie/tv(Netflix) tie in. Personally I don't think there will be an X-Men Omnibus 3 despite Masterworks carrying the name on past the end of the first series, but that's just my opinion.
    Thank you for correcting that, major brain fart there. I was thinking of Mr. Ditko and wrote Kirby. But yes, I came back to comics pretty late in the game and didn't want to start a Masterwork collection, so I've gotten omnis of stuff I've wanted. I've admittedly been spoiled on oversized art in those and hate to move down, but waiting on Epics to fill in might be my best bet. And I meant Uncanny X-Men, not the earlier stuff, sorry for the confusion.

    With regards to Daredevil post-Miller, I believe Marvel will want to issue as many TPB collections as they can such as the Epics before they go ahead and give us an Omnibus or two.
    Thanks, I thought the Romita Spidey seemed familiar. I originally wasn't going to get the first ASM omni because at glances I thought the artwork seemed a little ancient, but I was a fool for dismissing it. Ditko's art is glorious at times and enough praise can never be given him for creating the look of those characters.

    Really loving Romita's work in ASM vol.2 also; Flash's going away party was a real highlight so far, I felt like I was there.

    There are two uncanny xmen hardcovers in the hachette catalogue. Looking at the price they look like OHCs, but I don't know what could be collected. Any guess?

    Uncanny xmen is going to return as a series, but it's too early to collect an OHC.

    One of the hardcovers that made me very happy is doctor strsnge by donny cates. I really liked that story. I hope they collect also his thanos story, maybe including his cosmic ghost rider.

    Not to be captain correction here, but did you mean UXM Vol 4 then? Vol 3 was released Feb 2016. If you did mean 4 then I think the wait could be awhile since the masterworks haven't fully covered the likely contents. It could heavily depend on how they plan on aligning the numbered volumes into the named volume (Mutant Massacre Omni) and OHCs if we will actually get a "Vol 4" or not. Other people far better at mapping than me have many theories.

    Agreed. I get why Hulk fell off since Vol 1 languished on the shelves. I don't think Iron Man had the same issues since it was already OOP expensive when I got serious in this hobby 4-5 years ago. I don't know what will prompt Vol 3 at this point with Downey's contract up more movies are dubious. I am not far off from abandoning hope and going for the Masterworks of Iron Man like I just did with Hulk.

    I've been following a HC reading order to make purchasing decisions and I don't want it to go oop if it's worth getting.
    I've actually been reading that right now and the book is regular current Marvel quality which means good binding and thin paper. Newest printing now has a new cover rather than the black with logo.

    I enjoyed New X-Men. The art is a bit inconsistent but the story is good. I'm not a huge Morrison fan or a huge X-Men fan and I liked it, for whatever that's worth.

    Yes you're correct, I'm awaiting volume 4. I did see a new MW is coming out, so yeah it'll be a wait for that next omni if they do one. I'm planning to buy the new Mutant Massacre omni this fall and just wait for the gap to be filled, even if it ends up being with Epics I suppose, just so I can continue the reading.

    My goal is to catch up to where I read the floppies back in my youth, around the Inferno era, so I can read everything I missed leading up to that in the various X-titles. Might be awhile before that happens but I'll persevere. Thanks for your replies!

    It's an excellent run and it's pretty new reader friendly. It's one of the more straight forward Morrison books and one of the most critically acclaimed X-men runs. I would say go for it unless the following bothers you:
    -Morrison deliberately tried to create something new and different both on the story and on the visual level. He tried to make it more similar to the movies (not too similar though) and that I think bothers some fans (the Astonishing X-men run following this went straight back to the old X-men style).
    -I think the ending is kinda weird and the art (Silvestri) doesn't help but it might just be due to Morrison's falling out with the new editor at the time (Jemas?). If I remember correctly he left the company before the run ended.
    -the art can be dodgy sometimes, mostly Kordey's but to be fair he got really short deadlines for an insane amount of pages to draw.
