Hey guys still having a little trouble looking at sewn vs glued binding. Anyone know binding age of apocalypse has?

I can't wait for clearance prices because I rarely see them. I tend to Go with the amazon/chapters online discount. But marvel is going to have to live with me buying less.
I already get less because I don't get many PHCs due to a drop in quality and a reduced line of titles.
I get less OHCs because I'm waiting for completed runs now and the event ones are getting pricey. Bye bye companions.
And I think I'll end up getting less omnis since they seems to be running more current series and less classic stuff. Also the price hikes have turned me off.
Dark Horse will get more from me because their books are great and more affordable.
Fan of Witchblade, The Darkness, Artifacts, The Avengers, X-Men, Deadpool, Wolverine, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Locke and Key and so much more
I just bought the Hawkeye OHC at BAM a few weeks ago on clearance. Wonder why an Omni is being printed if they overprinted the OHC? (Btw, if they don't release OHC Vol 2, I'll just buy the trades. It's not worth it to me.)
I can't wait for clearance sales because I'm from Brazil, and the shipping kills the deal. My best option still is pre-order from amazon, hope to get a good discount, and pay $9.98 for shipping.
After getting (possibly) screwed over with this Hawkeye-won't-get-a-second-OHC thing, my new policy is "no ohcs", save for the ones without a number "1" on the spine.
It is had to wait for clearance when there is no guarantee it will happen.
This whole thing with Hawkeye omnibus/OHC makes me rethink getting the Thor god of thunder OHC that I've been waiting for ages. Give us a Thor GoT Omnibus Marvel!
I prefer the OHC format over Omnis for modern titles (I prefer Omnis over MMW for Golden/Silver Age material as I want the letters pages), so I will happily plod along and pick up the All New X-Men and Thor OHC from IST when they are released to support the format. I'll make a point to grab Daredevil OHCs 2 & 3 with those orders to finish up that series as I have been meaning to do for a while now.
Hey Krisis, you're missing a Hulk TPB in your reading guide.
Incredible Hulk: Pardoned is one of the proto-Epics released in 2012 and collects #269-285 by Bill Mantlo. Also the following TPB, Incredible Hulk: Regression actually DOES include portions of #296, just not the whole issue. They omit pages featuring ROM and instead include text summaries to fill the gaps on the missing pages.
Lastly, the extremely rare 1981 Ideals TPB "Incredible Hulk: The Secret Story of Marvel's Gamma-Powered Goliath" reprints issues 1, 125, and 227.
NOTE: There are similar Ideals "Secret Story" TPBs featuring Spidey, Cap, and FF. See here: http://www.mycomicshop.com/search?q=...pubid=&PubRng=

Currently reading (aside from singles):
Animal Man by Morrison(on issue 5): so far, friggin awesome
Big Damn Sin city (on the 3rd story): so far, intense, confusing at times, odd characters... I love it!
Solo (on the 4rd artist): so far, very interesting
Fear agent LE vol 2 (on page 80-ish): so far, as good as vol 1
RIP Superior foes of spider-man! We will miss you
If people would only refuse to buy substandard and/or overpriced product or at least wait until a clearance (if there is one), then Marvel bean counters would finally be sent the economic message they've pushed too far with their pricing schemes. But if you guys like the feeling of being bled dry, then go ahead and place your pre-orders for those 550-page $100 omnibuses with the cheap paper and paper boards that get all marred and fingerprinted while you read them. Me, I've got a huge backlog of books I can read while waiting for the next reasonably priced book and I like beer or a fine scotch--not the koolaid they're serving.
In fact the Hawkeye OHC moved a massive 3,632 copies in November 2013, ranking in at #10 on the direct market charts. The OSHC came back in January 2014 to make a dent with another 387 copies moved. All while the first two TPBs continued to sell well.
So Hawkeye has definitely been a great seller in trade, both TPB and OSHC. There is an Omnibus market out there for sure no matter how many people here decided to take a stand this time.
Marvel may have overprinted the OSHC book despite it's big sales. Perhaps they over-estimated how long it would keep selling like hot cakes. Perhaps they still had the employee in place that was responsible for overprinting everything Marvel has had to remainder out.
As I said before the last time I explained this type of situation, if Marvel contains/limits the print run of the Omnibus, it won't be at risk of hitting the clearance pile at all. And while the increased price tag of the Omnibus might be part gouging customer's pockets, it could also be partly Marvel trying to make up for what might be a smaller print run than they had done in their overprinting days.
