Looks cool. Can't say I'll buy it, but I'll definitely check it out if my library gets it.

I should clarify. I said I would purchase it before I realized there was a price, and what that price was. I may wait until I can get a good deal before I do that.

Yeah, there's also some controversy with Marvel's omnibus quality as of late. They switched to a cheaper paper quality and people have noticed the pages getting all wavy after just letting it sit on a shelf. They call it Papergate. Laughing

The Marvel Comics fan community really loves oversized bound hardcovers. It isn't even about the number of issues therein, it's the quality of the volume itself. People buy collections of new ongoing series in hardcover for more money than the individual issues were (had they bought those as they came out), but people value the hardcover and the quality.


I've never understood the love of hardcovers. But...just wow. I guess if people are willing to pay it they'll keep making them.

Me too. Regular comic books don't come in hardcovers, so why would you want to read them that way? It makes the pages hard to bend.

I understand that the binding makes the pages less likely to fall out, as happens with the dissolving glue of the softcovers...but that's why the original comic books used staples.

Don't we live in the 21st century now? For the comic books that I want to have as comic books I buy comic books. For the comics that I just want to read I buy digital, like TD.
