    They are both shills for Big Comica.

    They are guilty, and their collections should be confiscated. Otherwise, their behavior could incite other comic fans leading to anarchy of biblical proportions.

    Sorry for the double post, but one thing I wanted to mention about X-Force. With the current Cable & X-Force collections (v1, Onslaught Rising, Onslaught), there's just a gap of Cable 40-44,-1, X-Force 62-66, and Cable/X-Force Ann '97 then X-Force 85-100, X-Force/Champions 1998 and X-Force 1999 annuals away from having both titles collected in their entireties. So here's hoping for one more Cable & X-Force collection and X-Force Epic v8 in the near future.

    Definitely in for the Avengers and Hulk Epic. Might pass on UXM v4 Omni, but will probably cave once it’s actually released and buy it.

    Not overall a very good period for x-men in my opinion...but it’s been a long time since I read those. I remember them picking up steam again around issue 205 or so through the Mutant Massacre, and then another blah period after that, and I stopped reading X-titles altogether at the start of the 90s.

    Typical, just as I finally managed to get a hold of Torment... oh well, I wouldn't mind getting the rest.

Omar has even been mentioning which company prints the books in the overviews now.
    I saw his video on the Claremont/Lee Omnibus Vol 1, it seemed he disliked it because it wasn't much like the cartoon. I do not get any impression that he's a fan of comics, or at least has any eye for storytelling/plot. There was another book I was interested in and found a review on his channel, and ended up choosing not to buy it because his tastes seem to be about style over substance.

    And yet he very much liked Absolute Swamp Thing which is very much a book of substance. He also liked the Gotham Central Omni. There's no accounting for personal taste......we're all going to like some things others don't. I will agree that he is a 'collector'. He seems to want/need to have every omni ever released by DC & Marvel.

    Yes, Gem Mint is a collector in that he hunts for every omnibus; most of his reviews are when he goes back to read them; plus, when you look at the types of books he loves, it shows he's much more into stories outside of Marvel, DC, and Image. Best place to get reviews of content itself is here on this board to be honest. This forum has the most honest feedback on books, including those that really hate classics like Watchmen and Swamp Thing but also really love universally loathed runs like All-Star Batman and Robin.

    I like Gem Mint’s channel. I also like Near Mint’s. I think they both genuinely like comics.

    I don't think so, maybe have a look at his review of the Incal.

    Glad you guys like him, but I saw his top ten books to read and his Claremont/Lee Omnibus reviews; not to my tastes.

    Moon Knight Omnibus vol.1
    WEREWOLF BY NIGHT (1972) 32-33; MARVEL SPOTLIGHT (1971) 28-29; DEFENDERS (1972) 47-50; PETER PARKER, THE SPECTACULAR SPIDERMAN (1976) 22-23; MARVEL TWO-IN-ONE (1974) 52; MOON KNIGHT (1980) 1-20; MARVEL TEAM-UP ANNUAL (1976) 4; AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (1963) 220; material from HULK MAGAZINE (1978) 11-15, 17-18, 20; MARVEL PREVIEW (1975) 21

    Has anyone done a theoretical mapping of a volume 2?
    It would have to include the short seris, was it 6 or 8 issues, MK Fist Khonshu but then what? Would it double dip and contain those West Coast Avenger issues already collected in that volume? How many appearances in other titles does he have before the Marc Spector series starts? On that note I guess they would start including the first portions of that series and up to what cut off point perhaps?

    There was some solo appearances in Solo Avengers, Marvel Fanfare, and other titles. I don’t think the WCA issues would be included. At most issue #29 which was a spotlight issue on MK. The Chuck Dixon Marc Spector: Moon Knight series would be the next series for the omnibus. No idea on the cut off point.
