Comic Book Discussion Issue #2

Recommended Posts

After watching Eternals last night I thought I would finally read one of their books. It's a massive hole in my Marvel comic knowledge. Looked into it and while Neil Gaiman's book is highly thought of, this new 2021 relaunch by Keiron Gillen is apparently a great jumping on point.

Just waiting for it come in stock from Amazon UK then I think I’m gonna finally get my first omnibus. I’ve always stayed clear of them in the past as I tend to read lying in bed but with the Ultimate Spider-man omnibus getting a reprint that is one series I would love to have in the best possible version.

Edit: ended up switching out all of those Hickman Avengers books (decided I shouldn’t just try to force myself to like Hickman’s stories because everyone else does!) and went for the Spider Gwen omnibus instead. Quite liked the idea of a nice, self contained story that I don’t need to worry about getting sequels to. Plus if I’m getting Ultimate Spider-Man, Miles Morales & Spider Gwen omnibus then that’s quite a good grouping.

The only thing that’s a shame is that I would have preferred the alternate cover but I obviously had to go for the one available.

Wasn’t actually planning on ordering anything else until maybe the Infinite Crisis Omnibus got a price drop but I saw Thor Heroes Return Omnibus on Zavvi for the ridiculous discount of £150 down to £29.99 so figured I just couldn’t pass it up.

@Hero-of-Time you buy the Injustice comic right? Do you know if the entire run has now ended?

Yeah, it's finished now. That reminds me, I still need to buy the final book.

Thanks. I'm just debating whether or not to buy the 2 omnibus' (now that it seems to be becoming a bit of an obsession for me :laughing:) or buying the 6 Complete Collection trades.

I ended up buying the two omnibus'. I do like the idea of complete runs in omnibus format.

Ok last omnibus for the month. I wanted to try and get back into DC after struggling so much with New 52 and I’ve heard great things about this run (along with reading a small part of it)

Few more omnis since I got paid along with some IDW comics I’ve never read:

Started Turtles and am liking it so thought I’d add the first IDW Transformers collection to the purchase list as well.

Debating whether or not to sell off my Spider-man tpb collection so I can rebuy the omnibus’. I am starting to prefer the omnibus format but it’s such a hassle to list and post everything

Decided to just go for mix and match for now, fill in gaps with omnibus’ in the Spider-man collection. Ordered a few new books anyway.

Getting that for a fifth of the price is such a bargain. :o Great find.

I really should start reading it soon. It’s just sitting on my shelf at the moment, silently judging me.

Couple of new books. Might get vol.2 of Fantastic Four if I enjoy it but that’s probably it after that in the hopes that I’ll need to save money for my Steam Deck preorder.

Swapped out Darth Vader omnibus for Fantastic Four vol.2. I’ve already read quite a bit of that Vader run so it feels like it can wait and with vol.2 of FF that’s the entire run collected.

Yep I’ve managed to finish both of those.

Doctor Aphra was really good, probably my favourite of the new Star Wars books coming out under Marvel now. It maybe lost a bit of the more fun side of it about half way through but still a great read overall. I hear good things about her next series as well but now I’ve got this one in omnibus I’ll have to wait quite a while before the next one comes so they match on my shelf!

TMNT was a good spin on the origins of the Turtles and the series is another where I’ve heard nothing but good things about it. Im sure I’ll probably get more of the volumes down the line but I’d be lying if I said they were high on my list.

Managed to get a few more books on the cheap. I’ve never read Planetary but as it’s always high on “best ever comics” list I figured I should give it a shot and as for the others, I do love me some Godzilla.

Bored so thought I'd post an updated look at my collection since I had to move the DC stuff to seperate shelves.

Always heard great things about this Vision run but never really looked into it. Figured as the complete collection was a good price I’d give it a try.
