    Does anyone think we'll eventually get some sort of Thor: Siege Omnibus collecting Gillen's Thor issues and all the Siege Event tie ins to bridge the 2 existing omnibuses? (similar to the Daredevil Shadowland omnibus, I guess)

It would have been nice to been included for completion's sake, but you're definitely not missing anything (unless you're reading Fraction's run as well).

    Personally, I think the absence of Gillen's earlier Thor issues is a bigger issue, especially the Siege: Loki one-shot. They set up many of the threads in JiM and as someone who read them after JiM, I know first hand that including them would have added a lot more to the story.
    Interesting, thanks for the insight.

    And I agree, I wish this was a Thor and Loki by Gillen

    I wish it would happen, but with the ultimate collection around I don't think we have a chance. It's a real shame, because if the Loki by Gillen Omni goes well, I suspect Marvel will try to capitalize on Loki's appearance in Fraction's Thor run instead (and as a lifelong Thor fan, that run was a mess).

    Ran home to walk the dogs and my IST order of Planet Hulk and the 2 Punisher Omnis had arrived.

    I'm so super stoked about this hat trick of a purchase! The Punisher Back to the War Omni has some fun extras in the back I'm excited to look at and explore!

    That's cool! You didn't have to sign for it though? I always have to sign for it. And I hate it when the mailman comes when I'm not home.

    The dog sitter was there at midday and she signed for it. She couldn't stay all day though so I had to cover the evening walk.

    Ah, okay. There was one particular day when I knew I was getting a huge box of omnis and DE's in the mail, so I kept looking out the window and waiting for my dogs to bark (they go nuts when he goes by), but nothing. About an hour after the time he normally goes by, I decide to go see if I somehow missed him and sure enough, I see him parked on the next corner up about to leave.

    I hurried as fast as I could, and waved him down. He saw me coming and got out and smiled (he knows I get a lot of books). When I got to him, he said to me "I rang the door bell, but no one answered", which was weird because the door bell was working. Anyway, I signed off for them and took the big box home. It must have weighed about 60 lbs.

    So Punisher back to the war was kind of a blind buy for me have read Circle of Blood. How is the stuff before that? I love Ennis ultra violent Punisher, but have not read to much of the old school stuff.

    The Daredevil issues are a highlight. The rest are standard code approved comics from the 70s and 80s, so don't expect an Ennis ultra violence in them.

    I never have to sign for IST deliveries. I'm not sure if it matters, but I also always upgrade to FedEx ground shipping, usually for free. Fortunately I have a covered porch so I never come home to a box of books sitting in the rain.

    Yeah I did not expect that level, but interested to see his early days I think I have read the Daredevil stuff with him in it.

    I really hate when delivery people are this incompetent. Just last week I was waiting on a DPD delivery and when it supposed to come I heard a knock on the door downstairs, looked out the window and seen that the DPD van is outside so I just ran down quickly.
    I've checked the shipping label and it clearly said 2nd floor not 1st where the guy kept knocking... -_-'

    My dogs go crazy whenever the doorbell goes. Unfortunately, the postman got bit in the backside once by one of my dogs when he slipped out of the gate. We were away on holiday and my wife's parents were minding our house and menagerie. Fortunately, the postman, although not too happy, was forgiving. I have my comic books delivered to work. That way I'll always pick them up myself. If I'm away, they'll be waiting my desk as they always get signed by the receptionists.
