    Probably easiest to skip it all. Especially since it's all in a universe that's now dead and Hickman was a small part of it. Just look up Ultimate Reed Richards on Wikipedia to get caught up.
    Hickman's Ultimates was pretty bad and then it got worse after he left. In all fairness, though, by the time he took over the entire lines - except for Ultimate SM - kind of sucked.

    I think Secret Warriors is before Fantastic Four. Dark Reign Fantastic Four is the kick off to Hickman Fantastic Four. I am pretty sure its only in TPB format. Could be wrong. Have fun with your Hickman reads!

    So far there has been no hickman omnibus solicitations and as others pointed out to me in the past its pretty rare that a books come out in both OHC and omnibus format. But still many think it will still happen and I for one hope it does. As for the OHCS you need to get the avengers ones, new avengers ones, secret wars(which comes out in about a week) and then the avengers/new avengers time runs out which comes out in june or july. Also all of Avengers vol 2 is in the infinity OHC.


    Do you guys think the secret wars last days of marvel universe OHC is worth it? http://www.amazon.com/Secret-Wars-La...wars+hardcover

    it contains the issues before secret wars to many series. As someone who hasnt read any of the series in the book would this be worth it to me? I'd like to know what happens to these characters but don't know if itll be a hard read not reading any of the issues before them.
    I wouldn't bother with this one. Its funny because we still don't know everything that happened to our heroes because everything "all new all different" is set eight months after Secret Wars ends. It has been fun trying to put the little pieces together as these new #1s roll on.

    Also, not an OHC, but his Ultimates run should be read as part of the whole story.
    This summer on my hunt for all Hickman Marvel I picked up the standard hardcover of Ultimate Comics Ultimates vol 1.
    Need to get vol. 2.

    I was drawn to the "Evil Reed" Character. Didn't see this coming in Ultimate FF. Happy to see that he is still around causing trouble these days for Ewing's New Avengers. Speaking of ..Al Ewing is also writing Ultimates and dare I say, world building like Jonathan Hickman?

    I really liked the Spider-Verse event. I read it as it was being published in floppy. I had no idea what was going on in Avengers/New Avengers so while the incursions were destroying worlds Spider-Man from different Universes were being killed off by Spider eating vampires. It was Great!

    A fellow poster "The Sword is Drawn" from the Marvel UK thread picked it up. If you want to reach out to him, below is a link to his post regarding the book:

    Please try to not give away key elements of the story and warn us of spoilers. Some of us haven't yet got round to reading our Spider-Verse books.

    Canucked, please be so kind as to replace the List on page 1 with the below list.

    1. Amazing Spider-Man Omnibus Vol. 1 - 2,806 units (in April 2007)
    2. Captain America by Ed Brubaker Omnibus - 2,776 (September 2007)
    3. Invincible Iron Man Omnibus Vol. 1 (Silver Age) - 2,447 (April 2008)
    4. Silver Surfer Omnibus Vol. 1 - 2,443 (May 2007)
    5. Incredible Hulk Omnibus Vol. 1 - 2,312 (May 2008)
    6. Uncanny X-Men Omnibus Vol. 3 - 2,308 (February 2016)
    7. Uncanny X-Men Omnibus Vol. 2 - 2,251 (April 2014)
    8. Amazing Fantasy Omnibus Vol. 1 – 2,186 (August 2007)
    9. Daredevil by Frank Miller & Klaus Janson Omnibus – 2,157 (March 2007)
    10. SHIELD Complete Collection Omnibus – 1,983 (October 2015)


    The only upcoming Omnibus I can see cracking the Top Ten is Guardians of the Galaxy by Abnett & Lanning.
    I'm guessing Amazing Fantasy and Silver Surfer are so high because they were really cheap when they came out? Otherwise I don't see how they were able to beat so many other omnibuses such as UXM vol 1 or Walt Simonson Thor.

    Also, Abnett & Lanning Omnibus might find difficulty with sales, with Uxm and ASM reprints coming out on the same day.

    Well that settles that. *removes Spider-Verse OHC from his wishlist*

    Oh, Tom you slick dog you guess a volume 4 wouldn't sell well either.

    Of course it always depends just what title the vol.4 would be but clearly any of the A-list books would most likely do well as UXM can attest. FF vol.3 also did well, let's not forget.
    Does anyone think that an ASM vol.3 wouldn't sell well? What about Invincible Iron Man vol.3?

    I still think the material for an Inc.Hulk vol.2 would be appealing even for those who didn't get vol.1, the writers had really found the Hulk's voice during that stretch and the material for this is really what turned the Hulk into the beloved character he is for so many.

    Whereas I admit to being also surprised by the Amazing Fantasy Omnibus figure, The Silver Surfer Omnibus figure didn't shock me as much. The Silver Surfer Omnibus is one of the priciest OOP Omnibusses out there and he's also a pretty popular character. 2007 seems to have been a golden year for Omnibus sales. The Daredevil Companion Omnibus also shifted a decent figure of 1,887 in December 2007.

    I doubt the GOG Abnett & Lanning Omnibus will have problems with sales. It's a very popular series, and I reckon many will want to own this Omnibus. I also suspect that those who already have the series in other formats will also want to upgrade to an OHC format. The reprints will probably have reasonable sales but I see no reason for them to hinder sales of the GOG Omnibus in a marked way.

    So as someone who has ASM ohc vol 1 and plan on getting vol 2 is there much point to getting the spider verse ohc/edge of tpb? I know theres some major double dipping and pretty much the only thing you get in the spiderverse ohc thats not in vol 2 is the tie tins. Is it worth it? Do they flesh out the story very much? And im also pissed about the reading order thing. Also that its glued binding, I remember looking at a copy in barnes and nobels and my god it was almost as bad as the DC hawkman omnibus. If I go ahead and get spider verse, it would force me to get the edge of spiderverse tpb. But at this point i'm really trying to get as much an writers full run on series. I know slott didn't have much to do with the tie ins but even if they arnt to hot I still like the idea of an tie in fleshing out the story more. I wish more of slotts begining on ASM was collected in OHC.

    As as far as the hickmans ultimates work Ive always planned on picking up all of the UFF ohcs and the doomsday OHC. Ive never been to a comic book shop but ive heard many people on here say they usually have most of the UFF ohcs because they didn't sell well. Have you seen them in your LCS? what are the odds mine would have them?

    aren't these basically the premises of the stories? I've read like the first 2 issues of New Avengers and the first one starts of with the whole multiverse destroying thingy so I don't think this qualifies as a spoiler. Or is it?

    Maybe maybe not. I was mainly referring to Spider-Verse...

    ah okay, well, I've read Spider-verse but I don't think that's much of a spoiler, basically that was one of the selling points.

    In any case,

    CAREFUL WITH THE SPOILERS GUYS!!!
