    So the material in the Silver Age Cap Omnibus that was just reprinted - is it really notable or essential in any way? Like the silver age Fantastic Four and Spider-Man Omnibuses get a lot of praise. Some say Fantastic Four is the "Great American Novel." Those two titles seem like they're also very important in just a historical context for Marvel and worth working through even if someone isn't a fan of the silver age writing style. But does Cap fit that mold, or is it something that, unless you're a huge fan of the character, you should skip?

    Default Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus - buy now or wait?

    So it looks like I done held out too long on the IG omni. It's starting to get those ridiculous prices that out of print Marvel omnis tend to get.

    So my question is, should I just buy a copy from CheapGNs now for $150, or wait on the inevitable reprint coming in 2018 before the Infinity War movies come out? Is this entirely a personal value call?

    I guess "Is its reprint inevitable?" is a better question.

    That is completely fucking inept.

    There is no such thing as an inevitable reprint.

    I really enjoyed it, but it's not on the level of Fantastic Four or Spider-man. I don't think it's essential reading for Marvel the way those two are. It's just good Captain America comics with him fighting AIM and Hydra, MODOK etc. Agent 13 gets introduced and starts a classic Cap storyline about her. Lots of great art from Kirby and Steranko. The very beginning is a bit dull as it seems Lee & co weren't quite sure what to do with Cap on his own, away from the Avengers. Then they dabble in telling stories about him and Bucky fighting during the war instead of stories set in the present day of the 1960s, and those stories are dire, but I think there's only about five of them, and after they're over the book starts to get good. If anyone stops reading there, they're missing out!


    Overall, Silver Age Cap gets good much quicker than Iron Man and Thor (Thor takes the longest). Fantastic Four and Spider-man start off good. Ant-Man is never exactly good but I still enjoyed his epic collection for what it was. X-Men I can't be objective about enough to evaluate, the characters are too close to me. I haven't read Hulk or Namor or Shield or Avengers or Daredevil or anything else yet, but soon, I hope!

    I'd lay good money on a reprint happening based on AoA just having received one, but I don't advise you wait. If it doesn't happen those prices could double by the time the film comes out. If you really want it, I'd bite the bullet and pony up.

    Nothing is ever guaranteed, and normally I'm against the idea of banking on reprints, but I think Marvel would probably re-print the Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus for either Part 1 or 2 of the Infinity War films. But by then, who knows what the paper stock, covers, etc will be like. If you can get Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus now for cover or less, you might as well grab it. Then if a reprint is announced in a few years, you could always flip it before news of the reprint is widely known.

    (the Bendis volumes are after "shadowland" and are a bit confusing at times but ok... MK is great again in the Warren Ellis volume )

    Anyone reading the Lemire issues? They look great but i'm waiting for the TPB.
    I'm very much enjoying the Lemire issues thus far.

    With the number of collection specific editors they have mistakes like this are just not acceptable. The spines for the Oz books are even worse, I'll see if I can get a photo.

    I missed out on this too, but I'm not willing to pay the 120+ that the book is going for. I was told by Speedyhen that a reprint is on its way but I'm not sure how accurate their information is.

    To echo Tom Slick, not only are reprints not inevitable, but we might end up with one of the 500 dollar box sets like Marvel did for Civil War and Secret Wars rather than a reprint. AoA got a reprint, but that's not a specific Marvel movie so they're not going to want to promote it with something as lavish as a new box set. The reprint is more "we wish it was our movie but we'll try to make some money off it."

    2 words: jack kirby
    those two words even if in a small number of issues make not buying a omni difficult for me!

    I think there are still many copies of Infinity Gauntlet Omnibus, and my hopes are the movie will get a Infinity War or Infinity Crusade Omnibus (but there's news of a change in the movie title, so...)

    Not much you can do, the Infinity Gauntlet series is collector gold and always has been. Even the cheapo $1 reprint of the first issue sells above cover.


    Insofar as reprints seem random, this has to be a great candidate for the big movie tie-in. Unless we get Howard The Duck vol 2 instead

    If i read the GotG omni now, would it spoil the WoK omni later? I know theres some overlap, and Thanos imperative is like the conclusion of that cosmic era. Would it be better to wait and just read them jointly?
