Hope this helps!

    That helps a lot, thanks! In fact, Krisis kindly linked me to his listing a while ago, it was my bad not to think of looking for the link again.

Sure I wish they were still like the original releases but I don't worry about them falling apart like some do they seem plenty sturdy to me. As far as Hickman Avengers I would definitely wait for the omnibusses
    Yeah I noticed that there was a whole bunch of cosmic omnibuses now which is great! I found Annihilation is OOP, otherwise I would have been tempted to get the lot. I already have OHCs for that cosmic saga from Annihilation, Conquest, WoK, RoK and Thanos Imperative. Seeing I can get GotG in Oversized now is great. I am missing out on the Nova issues, but buying 3 Omnibuses to cover that seems a bit overkill. I will price them up but I have already ordered GotG Omnibus at a decent price.

    What has the build quality of recent Omnibuses been like? Are the OHCs any good?
    Yes it is definitely worth it to wait. The proper mapping makes the OHC reading experience far too annoying.

    Eh, it's not too bad. But if you don't have the OHC's, then I would get the omnis

    Well it's not just the Squirrrel-Girl OHC. All of the newer Marvel OHC's I've gotten since then have the smaller Marvel logo, and the text / volume number on the spine is too small to read. You'd think since they're dealing with a product that is grounded in artistic design and aesthetic that Marvel would put some care into what the finished product looks like? What gives??

    also on the previous NOW ohc-s the image at the bottom of the spine was usually the hero or a hero without the background but at least in case of SG it's just a cropped panel. Looks very cheap.

    Damn, this is going to kill my OCD for the Amazing Spider-Man OHCs.

    Yeah, they really laid an egg on these spines, and ASM does not escape the carnage.

    Are reprints of Omnibuses solicited in advance? For instance, we know all the Epic line volumes that will be released all the way to December. Do we get the same info re: reprints? I guess my question is: are we for sure not getting reprints of any of the X-Men omnibuses until 2018 at least?

    As far as I know, yes all reprints are solicited in advance. The thing is, we don't have official solicits through December yet, only what was listed in the newest Edelweiss catalog. Official solicits for most omnis happen six months in advance of release, so there could be something we don't know about yet pop up in the new monthly solicits between now and June that could release before the end of the year.

    They're not going to reprint Jim Lee X-Men Omni v.2 for awhile when they have just solicited much of the same material in Epic form (X-Men: Mutant Genesis).

    The reprinted Ennis Punisher Omni and reprinted Simonson Thor Omni's are solicited listings, so I'd say you've got a wait ahead of you, unfortunately.

    I have all the OHCs and they are really good quality, nice sewn bindings, pretty much the same standard as the other recent non-event OHCs.

    Keep in mind that the Avengers Vol 1 OHC has been OOP for a few months so the omni might be your best option based on that alone.

    I actually have a local guy I'm trading JMS Thor Omnibus for the set of Hickman Avengers OHCs. I've also got the Omnibus on preorder haha. Will just keep whatever one is better but I find I prefer OHCs now more than Omnibuses.

    You probably know this already, but there's no point getting Avengers Vol 2 if you're getting the Infinity OHC. It's a complete double dip, and Vol 2 won't make much sense on it's own. There's also some overlap between the Infinity OHC and New Avengers Vol 1 but you'll still need Vol 1 to see how the series kicks off.

    I'm interested in some Simonson Thor and see the omni is set for reprinting. However, it's a huge omni, and I'm a little hesitant to go that route given that the new Marvel big books tend to have very thin paper and iffy binding. I'm actually thinking about just going for the 5 tpb volumes of WS Thor instead. How do they rate in a physical sense? I'm concerned mostly about gutter loss...
