    Anyone theorize on why the JMS ultimate vol 5 is so expensive?

    The whole run is collected in five ultimate collection, so two omnibus.

    No reprint it seems.

    I wonder if the omnibus release makes it less or more probable that Marvel will eventually reprint it.

    Having not read the JMS run on Spidey, I just read that JRJR is the artist. damn

    And for those that have read it, is JMS's run one of the best?

    Seems like JMS is such a great writer but editorial decisions tarnish what could be masterpieces.

    I ended up getting;

    Avengers: Kree/Skrull War, the Korvac Saga, Cosmic Ghost Rider, Aaron's Avengers.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    JMS's run was not one of the best.
    I enjoyed some bits early in his run, Civil War and Back in Black, but Sins Past and the Other just tarnish his legacy on Spidey.
    Editorial mandate? Maybe. But he did write those stories.
    In the end most of this period was retconned or ignored when One More Day came around.

    JMS’s run is my favourite Spidey run.

    In general it’s seems the general consensus is that it’s good, with a couple of stinking stories in there.

    I could never get into the Morlun stuff at the beginning of the run either.

    The Morlun arc would go on to be pretty fundamental in the Spidey universe, in particular for Spider-Verse.

    I think some 15yrs+ removed from Morlun's creation the argument could be successfully made that he and the tropes around him are the most important thing added to the Spider-man universe since Venom.

    It just never got reprinted...

    For what it’s worth, I really enjoyed the WHOLE of the JMS run, even the ‘controversial’ bit.

    The thing is, you can’t hold modern day authors to things that happened 20-30 years ago...

    And that’s the point, we can’t demand that everything that happens now is ‘consistent’ with everything that has gone before.

    From my point of view, when Norman Osborne died, he died!

    But apparently, I have to adjust my point of view, to a different point of view!

    I didn’t find the JMS Gwen Stacy story any different.

    O.k, something different happened there...

    This is super hero comics...

    We (They) have to always create new narratives...

    To me, Gwen Stacy and Normn Osborne are BOTH dead.

    But that doesn’t stop me enjoying new stories.

    Hmm...

    I'm talking about when Marvel has other ideas like crossover events that can interfere with (or completely derail) a writer's story-line. I think I read that this happened with Spider-man.

    And btw if anyone cares to comment - what happened with JMS's Thor ending? I mean behind the scenes. JMS left the story unresolved?

    SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN: THE ORIGINAL MARVEL YEARS OMNIBUS VOL. 2
    Written by ROY THOMAS
    Penciled by JOHN BUSCEMA with NEAL ADAMS, WALTER SIMONSON, DICK GIORDANO, BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH & TIM CONRAD
    Covers by SIMONE BIANCHI & JIM STARLIN
    SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN, the cornerstone of Marvel’s black-and-white magazine line, offered up stories of fiction’s most famous barbarian unencumbered by the Comics Code! With the rules of civilized publishing cast off, SAVAGE SWORD presented ferocious, untamed tales the likes of which Conan himself would approve. Writer Roy Thomas and artistic greats including John Buscema and Neal Adams took full advantage — and the results were a sensation! Multi-part sagas like “The People of the Black Circle” luxuriate in extended tellings, while Buscema’s take on “The Tower of the Elephant” explores the nuance of an all-time Robert E. Howard classic. And it’s topped off with MARVEL COMICS SUPER SPECIAL #2, a tale of vengeance lavished with fully painted colors! Collecting SAVAGE SWORD OF CONAN (1974) #13-28 and MARVEL COMICS SUPER SPECIAL #2.

    New York City has always been a defining element in Spider-Man’s world, but it’s going to drive him crazy — if it doesn’t kill him first.

And the hits keep coming when Peter Parker is accused of causing a prison break — and thrown in the slammer himself! Also featuring Moon Knight, a team-up with Sub-Mariner against the Frightful Four and the Aunt May solo “adventure” you demanded! And it’s all topped off with an iconic Dennis O’Neil/Frank Miller Annual pitting Spider-Man and the Punisher against Doc Ock! Collecting AMAZING SPIDER-MAN (1963) #213-223 and ANNUAL #15.
