    Does he eventually return to the title? Would anyone say it's a series worth investing in? I was intruiged by Riri Williams but don't know if her story was concluded in a satisfying way.

    All of the Bendis IM - particularly Infamous - was great. All the storylines from the second volumes are now running in the current Legacy IM series so technically Riri’s story hasn’t been concluded.

    I really enjoyed Bendis' IM run. Though I too was soured by the switch to Deodato. Id still say its worth a buy though.

    I wish Marvel would have at least collected the first two series' volumes together. I think they were Invincible and International.

    Based on past updates, probably mid March. It can vary by several weeks though.

    For what it's worth and I hope this hasn't already been posted, but Marvel liquidating it's Dark Tower books to retailers. (No omnibus collections tho.)

    Coincidentally, I bought The Stand and Dark Tower Omnibus collections pretty cheap last week. Just waiting for them to be delivered.

    Bit worried about the glue issue, but seems like a good deal and ran the risk.

    Did anyone here purchase the Civil War Box Set? Are they all Oversized HC? Or regular ones? And can you tell me the exact issues collected? I wanna be sure it has the entire thing. Ultimately, would you say it's worthy?

    Thanks in advance!

    I didn't purchase it but they are definitely regular sized and not OHCs.

    According to the MMW website , the contents are:

    Box set including Civil War Prologue Premiere HC, Civil War Premiere HC, Civil War: Avengers Premiere HC, Civil War: Fantastic Four Premiere HC, Civil War: Front Line Premiere HC, Civil War: Marvel Universe Premiere HC, Civil War: Spider-Man Premiere HC, Civil War: The Underside Premiere HC, Civil War: X-Men Premiere HC, Civil War Aftermath Premiere HC, Civil War Files Premiere HC

    Thank you, Raffi!


    According to this article, Black Panther books are topping sales on Amazon:

    And yet we don't get a Black Panther Omnibus when the movie is coming out next week. What was Marvel thinking?

    Crazy that they didn't. We didn't get an Ant-Man/Giant Man Omni either when that film came out and they had the Silver Age material to do it, still do but aren't getting one this time for the sequel either.

    Yeah, there are a lot of opportune runs to collect as well. I've always wanted to read Priest's run, based on all the love it gets. A Don Mcgregor collection would also be great. And of course, Kirby would be an obvious choice.

    By the way, been searching a long time - Anyone remember a short Black Panther comic where he was possibly traveling in an underground sewer system, battles someone, gets a bloody cut?
    Fuzzy memory but let me know if that rings a bell, please.

    I'm very confident we'll get a couple of Black Panther Omnibuses alongside the 2nd Panther movie. And who's to say there won't be an Ant Man Omnibus in the upcoming couple of solicitations. We're getting a couple of Wolverine Omnibuses several months after the Logan movie, therefore the same may happen for Ant Man.

    D'oh! Maybe Marvel's collections department were too busy trying to burn, destroy, and liquidate copies of the Muppet Babies, Ewoks, Ultimate Marvel, and 1990s 1st Omnibus books to bother with Black Panther!

    Or maybe not, because it seems like they've been putting out a lot of in-demand collections over the last year.
    Nah, it's not you. I used to read these boards daily ... you basically had to. Some days there would be pages of new comments and feedback to check up on. Now I'll skim it here a couple times a week, if that, just to see what's what. Anyone remember the big amazon glitch of 2010 or 2011 or whenever it was? That's when I first found these forums. Then a few years later there was another glitch where amazon had the $150 Stand Omnibus slipcase for like $10.50. It was worth keeping up with, just because you'd never know what crazy deal was going down. All the anticipation and fun surveys about what would be a new Omnibus release, what was everyone's "white whales", etc. Plus lots and lots of good old fashioned back and forth chicanery and foolishness with posters joking around. Good times.

    Sadly, those days are long gone now. A lot of the old posters have disappeared, and former "regulars" just check in once in a while. Also the thread has been kind of neutered with good deals going in another (slow moving) thread, etc.

    Much like you, I've wondered if it's a declining interest in physical books ... heck, you can't find comics anywhere nowadays except dedicated comic stores. I think the industry is dying off, slowly, and only the hardcore niche fans like us have stuck around thus far. And there just aren't that many fans that will pay the prices for oversized hardcover books or buy every Epic Collection TPB like we do.
