    Sort of gives me a safe feeling to have them safe and stored in their mylar bags, should their hardcover counterparts fall apart. I typically only do this for my favorite books, such as Morrison's Batman, TMNT, and Ultimate Spider-Man.
    I keep my favorite runs on hc, floppies and digital as well.

    Singles are my nemsis. If I upgrade singles to any form I get rid of the singles. Although it's been years since I've bought a single. Marvel Unlimited has replaced the need for them for me.

    If they continue, I would assume vols 2+ would be normal size for books like this - typically 3 MMWs per omnibus.

    it's solicited on Hatchette as $75 cover price.

    thanks for the info. So the MMW is 336 pages for $50 RRP an the omni will be 456pg for $75 RRP.
    So the deciding factor would be the quality I think if anybody could confirm that the new printing of the MMW is still superior to the omnibuses. IF not or just slightly then I will wait for the omni.

    Agreed--I love the way the Miller omnibuses look! I actually don't like the homogeneous look of most of the other books, especially if they don't even have the character/series logo on the spine (only some of them do.)

    Same here. I've held on to a few that I was super-nostalgic about (stuff I had when I was a kid, where the newsprint feel (and smell!) is important), but mostly they go right up for sale.

    I hear ya.
    The advertisements and cheap build really take away from the reading experience, but they certainly look beautiful when they've got a great cover and are sealed in plastic.

    The only floppies I keep are the ones I plan on binding.

    Just a heads up: many omnibuses are being cleared out of Marvel warehouses.

    Surprised to see the IG, Spider-Man Stern, Thor 2 and Iron Man ones clearanced. Some of those were already becoming scarce in certain quarters.

    The annoying thing is we never see any of these discounted books make their way across the Atlantic.

    I'd snap up both those Iron Man omni's straight away.

    Hopefully PRGrafix might be able to snag a few for us

    How would someone in the UK go about finding good deals on these books?

    After a quick cursory check around the internets, nothing is discounted yet. No $30 omnibuses showing up for these titles as of yet. It will either take awhile, like a few weeks, etc..., or else that article is full of it. Only time will tell.
    It feels like some of those HAVE to be wrong. Like the Claremont/Lee ones, New Avengers, Infinity Gauntlet - those have been going above MSRP for awhile now, right? That article doesn't feel right. Some of those, sure, like the Uncanny Avengers, Muppets, Marvel Now, etc... but others, not so much.

    I use isbns.co.uk
    put them in a whishlist and check the prices every day (click on them individually otherwise the site won't update the prices in your list unfortunately).
    Also, keep an eye on PR Graphix.
    Cheap-comics might do some clearance as well, currently they have some good deals but they only worth it if you order multiple books since they have a 15 euro flat rate shipping price.

    Looks like it's time to finally get the X-Statix omnibus!
