"THE SILVER AGE WONDER WOMAN OMNIBUS VOL. 1:
This collects #98-123 and is scheduled to ship December 14. Wonder Woman: The Amazon Princess Archive Vol. 1 (and only) reprinted #98- 110, so although I don't buy omnibus editions until they get to…"
"THE BRONZE AGE JLA VOL. 3:
As Cap mentioned over in "This Week in Comics," JLA OMNI v3 shipped this week. I agree with him that I'm glad to see that this series is, in fact, continuing in this format, however it does render "The…"
""Have those been collected into a tpb?"
Not that I know of.
"I imagine I should stop being so obsessive."
Great. Now you've given me something to obsess about. ;)
"Can you tell me just one example of GA Batman…"
"So, I figured I'd better go to the shelves and check it out. Unless I'm mistaken, it's worse than I thought. Assuming WW archives 1-7, at which point WW omnibus 3 nicely picks up with only one duplicate, it also starts with Comic…"
"Wonder Woman was the first "smart" Archive series in that it presented stories from both Wonder Woman and Sensation Comics in chronological order, as opposed to Batman/Detective Comics and Superman/Action Comics which were two series…"
"If I remember correctly, Jeff, there is another gap. With Wonder Woman you (and me, as I've made the same collecting decisions) won't have the first 2 or 3 WW stories that were originally in Comic Cavalcade. I'm not sure if…"
""So, does anyone have a Marvel Masterworks Captain America Vol. 7 they'd like to get rid of?"
Can't help you with that one. That's a run I'm perfectly content to own in MMW but not omnibus. the owner of my LCS no longer…"
"So, does anyone have a Marvel Masterworks Captain America Vol. 7 they'd like to get rid of? I have that series complete to present, except for Vol. 7. I could get the Omnibus, but that creates two superfluous Masterworks, plus doesn't look…"
"I broke the next part of the above post off into a discussion of its own, "How Many Versions Does One Man Need?" If that discussion takes off, I am prepared to branch off into John Byrne's Man of Steel/Superman/Action Comics. "
""Anyone know why What If #16 was skipped in the omnibus?"
It's a rights/licensing issue I would guess.
"Jeff, I'm curious: Do you get Marvel Omnibuses, and then skip the corresponding Masterworks, or vice versa, or get them…"
"I haven't gotten omnibuses but some Epic collections are cheaper than the Masterworks. Not always though — the first Hulk and Thor Masterworks came out a better deal than the alternatives.
Yes, that storyline was a mess. Illogical…"
"Anyone know why What If #16 was skipped in the omnibus? I could look it up, but I'm lazy.
I ordered The Death of Iris West, or whatever it's called, for research purposes. I would do the same for "The Trial of The FLash," should…"
"I preordered that one, but it won't arrive for a few weeks, because I doubled it up with Golden Age Captain America Vol. 2.
This week I ordered the Man-Thing Omnibus in preparation for October. (I read the Swamp Thing Omnibus LAST October, so…"
"Upcoming releases that caught my eye...
FANTASTIC FOUR OMNIBUS v4: #94-125 (+ The Lost Adventure) - August
SPIDER-MAN OMNIBUS v5: #143-180 (+ Annual #10-11 and Nova 12) - September
ABSOLUTE SWAMP THING by ALAN MOORE v3: #51-64 (the final…"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
