    Speak of, Silver Age Daredevil is also released then, right?

    How is it? I was planning on passing on it for the time being

    Yeah. I'm going to have to pass on DD and Alpha Flight so I can afford the other two. Annoying, but worth it.

    On the plus side, I just scored X-Men by Claremont and Lee volume two for cover, which almost completesy x-men OHC collection. I just need Inferno and the little DOFP one. And of course, the unreleased ones.
    Cyclops was right

    As a big Daredevil fan, I quite liked Silver Age Daredevil. However, if you're not a fan of Silver Age or Daredevil or alternatively not a completionist when it comes to Silver Age Omnis, I would advise against purchasing it.

    It's not as "easy" a read as Silver Age Spidey in terms of the stories being interesting and readable. The art is for the most part just fine but it is a bit of a chore to get through some of the stories. I would say the first Masterwork is worth having because of the origin, Wally Wood and Bill Everett art, a lot of major supporting characters first appearances (incl. Foggy, Karen Page, the Owl, Purple Man), the change in costume, the Namor/DD battle....

    I'm personally looking forward to seeing it all in oversized format.

    Thanks, I'm a bit of a DD fan. Granted, I've only really read the highly acclaimed stuff from Miller, Smith, Bendis, Bru, and Waid(read Shadowland but didn't care for it).

    I'll think about it. Maybe I'll try to read a few of the issues elsewhere and pick up the omnibus later if I like them

    These are my sentiments exactly. I got the first Epic Collection collecting #1-21 and I got through I think 12 issues (first part of the Savage Land story) before I got sick of it, for lack of a better term. Meanwhile I had no issues reading the early issues of Spidey, Avengers or FF.

    On this subject, the DD Vol 3 Epic (#42-63) comes out soon. Do you know if these stories are an improvement over Vol 1, or would it be more of the same?

    The stories in this period are not a whole lot better especially for "non-Daredevil" fans and at times I found even less readable. There's a lot of stories with the Jester which I'm not a big fan of, and they would kind of drag on for ever.

    On the positive side, you get the consistency of Gene Colan's art which for me took some getting used to but once I did was quite interesting and enjoyable. I believe he was ahead of his time (a little like Frank Miller in the 80s on DD) and literally drew outside of the box i.e. not the regular square panels but you would have legs and arms breaking out of the boxes or one page spreads which were topsy-turvy. He made it that little bit more readable.

    There's also a couple of issues drawn by Barry Windsor Smith. I quite enjoyed the story with the blind Vietnam Vet Willie Lincoln (first appearance). You also get DD revealing his identity to Karen Page as well as the classic retold origin #53 issue and also a Black Panther team-up.

    Yes, it comes out that week. I'm getting it. The stories are kind of fun and you can see that they certainly influence Mark Waid's swashbuckling run on DD. But, they are Silver Age reading material, so there's that.

    I'm in the same boat. I have heard absolutely NOTHING good about SA Daredevil. People seem excited for a new omnibus, rather than a new omnibus of that material.

    Considering the huge price hike on omnis for the UK since the dumb Brexit stuff, I dont think I can afford to take a punt on really bad stuff just for the sake of liking a run on the character many years later...

    I think I'm fine with the MMW v1. I like to get to know the beginnings of my favourite characters but 2-300 pages is more than enough usually. Got a few vol 1 MMWs and I think those would be enough work to read them, can't see myself reading 1000 pages of half phoned in Stan Lee writing.

    Pricewise, I am in the same boat, athough living in Germany. The prices for Omnis and OHCs have gone up in recent years. New Omnis are constantly in the range of 100 -115 Euros. Bad thing: If you want to buy overseas, the book itself can be had for way cheaper, but then the shipping kicks in and you are almost in the same region. Getting 3 Omnis a month is out of the question. And since they tend to get rare soon, I buy less and less as this would damage my collection with holes I cannot fill. Adding to that the thin paper situation and you get the pic.
    Daredevil would be on my list as some of the MMWs are selling for stupid prices on ebay and SA and moreso GA stuff has to be read differently and with a different mindset anyhow. It was another time and pacing and wording was different than today.

    It was bound to happen, wasn't it? Bad luck has finally caught up with me.

    Last night I began reading the new Ms. Marvel Omnibus. The series started out great and it had me hooked instantaneously. I kept reading until issue #4, when I suddenly happened to stumble upon this nightmare.

    I am going to contact IST and hope for a refund or a new copy. I hate printing errors.
