    The ANAD spines are pretty much the same as the Secret Wars spines only white instead of black. At least, I am assuming so based on Silk Vol 0 and Spider-Gwen Vol 0.

    Amazon for everything for me!

    If you are in the U.S.A the best choices are either Cheap Graphic Novels or In Stock Trades. Both offer up to 50% off new trades and hardcovers the week of release (CGN is 50% off all new Marvel/Dc books the week of release). CGN has a flat shipping rate of $7.99 per order. IST has free shipping on all orders over $50. I have had great service from both, but many posting on this board seem to favor IST. I go more for CGN, I usually get a slightly higher discount and they have a wider selection of "out of print" books. Also searching on CGN is much easier. They both beat the heck out of AMAZON for price and packing. Amazon is somewhat notorious for delivering damaged books.

    There's no reason you should ever pay cover price for a new book on the internet. All new books are usually between 30-60% off cover.

    It's always worth it to check eBay and used book stores if you don't need your books brand new mint. If you don't mind remainder marks you can get pretty much every non-special Marvel book at a discount eventually, since Marvel has no idea how much to print ever.

    I use Speedyhen and Reed Comics for my books and both provide decent discounts, I don't think I've paid full price for a trade in years.

    Also if you are in the UK you should check out http://prgrafix.co.uk/ for massive discounts, especially when they have their sales on. The books are all odds and ends but they do have some amazing bargains at times.

    I'm in the UK and get all my omnibuses, OHC'S and trades from Speedyhen. They've really stepped up in regards to packaging they're omnibuses. My last two both came in huge boxes with tons of packing paper. Not a ding in sight ��

    Also get the odd bargain off Amazon, and as Mr Orange has said Prgrafix has some good bargains. Hoping they get a restock soon as it's been a while since they've had anything new for sale.

    In Canada, I used to buy everything on either Amazon.ca or Indigo.ca (they have the same prices). But now that the dollar is so bad, the discounts they offer off Canadian cover price is sometimes negligible. The new Epic Collections are maybe $4 off. Given that, I might buy off those sites, or I might just buy from Indigo or Chapters in-store. Or wait for a Convention, where you can sometimes get US cover or a bit off of that.

    During Boxing Week, Chapters/Indigo had a deal where it was 30% off all hardcovers, in-store only. I decided to take the opportunity to replace my black-and-white, paperback Scott Pilgrim books with the newer, full-colour hardcovers. I checked the price on Amazon and Indigo online, and it ended up being cheaper to buy in-store. Plus, the Scott Pilgrim HCs didn't have a Canadian cover price, so they put stickers on them for their in-store price. Turned out that price went up, but they hadn't replaced the stickers yet, so I got them cheaper. List price was $33.50, I got them for $28.99, less 30%, so about $20 each. One store had volumes 1-3 and 5-6, so all five for $106. Went to another store for Volume 4 (they had updated their stickers correctly), so it was 30% off $33.50. But still, a great deal

    The complete estimated comic book sales figures for December 2015 are in (please note this list only details those comics sold to North American Comics Shops as reported by Diamond). Ive listed below the Marvel OHC/Omnibus/MMWs as well as the larger TPB collections such as the Epic, Ultimate and Complete lines that made the list (position, title, est. sales).

    20. Hawkeye OHC Vol. 2 - 2,359
    25. Star Wars Legends Epic Collection Infinities - 2,210
    42. Deadpool By Posehn and Duggan OHC Vol. 4 - 1,709
    55. Marvel Masterworks Amazing Spider-Man HC Vol. 17 - 1,581
    62. Black Panther By Priest Complete Collection Vol. 2 - 1,524
    82. Wolverine Epic Collection Dying Game - 1,329
    93. X-Men Epic Collection Gift - 1,219
    94. All New X-Men OHC Vol. 3 - 1,217
    154. Deadpool By Daniel Way Complete Collection Vol. 1 - 776
    178. Amazing Spider-Man Ult Newspaper Comics HC Vol. 2 1979-1981 (IDW) - 679
    218. Incredible Hulk Sal Buscema Marvel Artist Select HC #1 (IDW) - 564

    227. Alias Omnibus - 545

    Some observations:
    No new Omnibus release this month. However, the Alias Omnibus has been selling well due to the Netflix show, which has caused comic retailers to put through further orders to Diamond.
    The Hawkeye Vol.2 OHC shifted very respectable numbers considering that the Omnibus was only released 2 months ago. I suspect that the Omnibus may very well go OOP sooner than we think.
    Btw, the bestselling Omnibus of the month was iZombie from DC with a figure of 1,095.

    Interesting that the iZombie omnibus did that well. I'm glad to see the Black Panther Complete Collection is getting solid numbers.

    How are you guys going to collect the upcoming relaunched Marvel stuff? Are you going to just hold out for OHCs and miss series that most likely won't get OHCs (Vision, Ultimates etc) or are you going to buy everything in tpb and the sell it when an OHC is announced?

    Unless you live in Canada, where the economy is collapsing and Amazon is offering 4 to 11 percent off the already overpriced Canadian price. Some of the older books still have the 34% discount, but none of the new books do. Canadians are now completely screwed.

    Marvel Unlimited for me. I can't be doing with tiny 4 or 5 issue trades, and I've reach the end of my tether for collecting floppies after all these relaunches.

    Anything I enjoy that's released in omni or ohc can then be grabbed later ☺

    Similar to me, I buy digitally and then re buy the stuff I really enjoy in whatever format I like the look of later on. The second I could I stopped buying floppies, I don't know how I had the patience for them when I was a kid. I guess no options helped.

    I now have a complete Brubaker Captain America run made up of three complete collections, three PHC's and the last two omnibuses.

    Just finished The Man Without A Face, it's easy to forget just how great the action is, how much of the Marvel universe is used including the outlandish and realistic and how subtle the character development can be. I think I'd consider Steve and Bucky favourites but not in my top 3 but it's getting harder and harder to think of reasons why this run isn't my all time favourite series.
