    I ended up getting Thor OHC volume 1.

    But that's Orion's m.o. I'd be disappointed otherwise. He's part of the family. Like that cousin you see at holidays everyone hates

    And once again...you just don't get it do you? Why do you act like such a dick? The previous posters are obviously referring to OHC collection or omnibus edition. You know this. Why bother chiming in if you have nothing to add?

    Looking on amazon and see the MMW Champions book is highly discounted. Is it cheap because it is not very good?

    Deep discounts like that (or any sort of discount) aren't a reflection of quality, but rather quantity. Marvel probably overestimated demand and printed too many.

    There was a list posted here via Bleeding Cool recently of a whole bunch of MMW that are about to have their prices slashed. Good time to try something you might have been on the fence about...

I'm super excited to see what he brings to DC. That said, deep down I always kind of hoped Marvel would have given him the 616 Amazing Spider-Man title. I liked his version in New Avengers and was always curious to see him handle a full solo title. Oh well.
    You never know, Bendis could be enticed back to Marvel 18 years down the line with the Peter Parker gig

    What's your definition of "free"? If you mean buying OOP USM OHCs for over double cover price then yes. But people who don't regularly have that much cash at their disposal are not so "free".

    Exactly. I like OHCs, but I like Omnis much better

    Of recent, I decided to go after the remaining part of the USM run in OHCs. I have the Vol. 1 Omni and Vol. 6-12 in OHC. Vol. 4 & 5 still to go.

    I haven't yet decided what to do with NA (I have the Omni but no OHCs).

    Has anyone else had problems with the new printing of the Thor by Simonson omnibus?

    I've had two copies now that I've had to return because the first signature of the book is falling out. First signature ends with Thor yelling "FATHER!"

    Copies came from different retailers too, so I think a large portion of the print run might be affected.

    Do you have any pics? I read a few issues to check this out when I received it. I didn't have any issues but will check it out when I'm able to. I haven't had a problem with any signatures falling out from any Omnis. (had to google what signature in terms of book binding meant)

    Lol, I work in book production so I'm used to just referring to sigs. I work extensively with the printer Marvel uses for these and they usually do great work so I'm kinda surprised here. This is something that should've been caught at the printer before books were ever shipped to accounts.

    I wouldn't be surprised if some other people have the same issue.

    Happy to learn the correct terms for things! I would also be surprised if you were the only one with this issue. I wonder what the Quality Control is on these things. The only books I've seen with similar damage have been old well worn books.
    I will check mine out when I get home plus I need to check out my copy of Justice League International for its issues as well. The fun never ends.

    Has anyone picked up items from Marvel's clearance sales?

    I picked up all 3 volumes of Star Wars: The Marvel Years to give to a friend for Christmas. And I picked up Howard the Duck, Superior Foes of Spider-Man, The Trial of Captain America, and Return of the Winter Soldier for myself.

    Question about The Stand omnibus. A few years back there was some discussion about how it was poorly built. Are the discount copies coming out today any better or are they the same edition?
