Comic Book Discussion Issue #2

Recommended Posts

I was tempted to pick up SoX myself, as well as HoX/PoX. I was watching some comic/omnibus related YouTube videos and was close to pulling the trigger after it got me in the mood. 

Now that Hickman has finished his run on the X-Men, I really wouldn't mind reading how it all went.

I’ve been a bit up and down on it but I know I’m in the minority for that, most love it. What I don’t like is how it’s been collected. There are too many different versions of books like the Dawn of X stuff and then just X-men or how I found out after Hellfire Gala arrived today that the tpb I got is missing at least 6 issues from the event that are in the hard cover.

Its worth reading but just make sure you know what to get.

What you just said is why I didn't pick them up. When looking into it, it doesn't appear if there's a proper complete collection, with comics missing in some trades and lots of issues scattered across multiple books. I dunno why they couldn't have done a proper complete collection. 

Its a dangerous rabbit hole. I started looking at omnibus collections and I had to pull myself away. I'm very surprised there isn't a complete collection of the Messiah War/Complex/Second Coming storyline.

I expect those will come at some point. They seem to sit in a weird point in X-Men history before they’d started complete collections for most stories but where they also haven’t quite reached in the older stuff that they went back to merge into bigger books.

I’m just finishing off my Heroes Reborn omni at the moment (which not surprisingly hasn’t been great but is at least picking up now I’m near the end) and then will move onto X of Swords. I need to carry on with Jason Aaron’s Thor series after that, especially with Love & Thunder coming soon.

Yeah Heroes Reborn The Return is still in print as an omni and I think the tpb complete version hasn’t been out of print for too long so probably wouldn’t be too hard to find.

Couple of Spider-man omnibus' to add to the collection. The JMS run was the first main Marvel continuity Spider-man I collected which is why I decided to upgrade to the omnibus from my trades.

Added another one to the order as it was a good deal and I know how hard it can be to track down Marvel omnibus' when they go out of print. I was hoping to get the Micheline & Larsen as well but no luck on the stock.

I haven't read a lot of Roger Stern's stuff so I'm looking forward to it as I know how beloved it is.

@Happenstance did you ever read any of the Boom! Studios Power Rangers stuff? The deluxe editions look lovely.

Yeah I did and its really good, well worth getting. I was planning on getting those deluxe editions myself but the early ones are out of printand they go for hundreds second hand now so I'll probably get the trades instead. You can get the deluxe editions through a kickstarter but it's expensive because its all at once.

Yeah, I watched a video about the deluxe editions but sadly they don't include some of the early Go Go Power Rangers issues. I mainly want to read Shattered Grid storyline.

Finished reading the Annihilation Omnibus today and thought it was amazing. I've never been a big fan of the cosmic side of the Marvel universe but this did a great job reintroducing all those characters for the modern era and telling a really interesting war story. When Annihilation Conquest gets a reprint ill definitely pick it up as I'm looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here.

Gotta love new omnibus day! I was planning on just getting the two Star Wars books but Infinite Crisis came back in stock for the first time this year so I didn't want to risk missing out on it again.
