    Some Epic collections are out of print and going for higher prices on the secondary market, not sure if that's the case with any of the ASM ones. The omnibuses tend to go out of print too but they were reprinted multiple times already (except for volume 3, because it's the newest one) so it's just a matter of patience.
    As for where to buy them online: if something is not OOP and you live in the US I'd highly recommend checking instocktrades.com or cheapgraphicnovels instead of ebay.
    Thanks for that info. I'll check them out. The omnibuses (another I never heard of) sound particularly interesting. :-)

    Just read Pulp past night and thoroughly enjoyed it. I have both Black Beetle hardcovers but have never gotten around to reading them. Maybe now is the time.

    Just finished Marvels 25th Anniversary HC. It was a true pleasure from beginning to end. Marvels #2 even had me shedding a tear or two which is a rare occurrence for me when reading. The extras were really nice too. I enjoyed it so much that I can’t see letting it go from my collection. Highly recommend to anyone who hasn’t read it.

    I just read A walk through hell complete series. I don't get it and didn't like it. A huge dissapointment.

    B.P.R.D. Vampire TPB - the brothers Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon are back and this time not only on art duties, but they were giving the writing job too. After the first issue I would say they manage to get the tone of this universe right and the art is great as expected.

    One important aspect of the Mignolaverse is that Dave Stewart did the colours on so many books, not only the main Hellboy and BPRD books but also in some of the "supporting" books such as Witchfinder and Lobster Johnson. This ensures a very consistent look / vibe between books, even when the artists' styles vary greatly, for instance Gary Gianni in Hellboy: Into the Silent Sea.

    Finishing the back half of the new printing of the Flash by Johns Omnibus. Never read it before and although it isn't as good as Johns' Green Lantern (so far) it's pretty well done. Love the Scott Kollins cartoony style art. It's all just a warm up as ship notice from CGN came yesterday for Green Arrow by Grell Omnibus!

    I feel like a reread of that is inevitable as soon as proper sweater weather kicks in. Such a fun, cozy series.

    From what I remember, John's Flash run gets better with the 2nd and 3rd omnibuses. I also love Kollins' style, especially here, when he comes back to the title later it got more detailed but less energetic (or maybe just because he came on after Manapul, IIRC).

    Yeah I do like it, although I've just got to the point when the artist changed. I'm not digging the art as much but I've still ordered volumes 3 and 4.

    Sarin becomes the regular artist but I'm so used to their stuff I even forgot there was another artist on the series originally
    Both are great but I genuinely do love Sarin. It's just really nice, fluid and expressive cartooning and the storytelling has a great flow as well.

    Yeah it's a nice and easy book to pick up and read. I'm now reading volume 3.

    I’m reading Epic Collection Silver Surfer Thanos Quest. I’ve read the Rebirth of Thanos TPB so I am double dipping on the Thanos Quest mini-series, but apart from that I am enjoying the Surfer centric stories leading into the Infinity Gauntlet.
