    Yeah, that Neal Adams Batman Omnibus went OOP relatively quickly for a DC Omnibus.

    Volumes 4 and 5 will be in my first haul of 2018 which will complete the set with the 2 Omnibuses as bookends

    One of my favourite Omnibuses. I have the direct edition but would prefer the Variant as I'm a fan of the original costume.

    Btw, how did everyone do on the white whale front in 2017? I only obtained 2 books but they were well below cover:

    Ultimate Spider-Man Vol. 6 & 7 OHCs.
    I started recently to collect Omnibuses but there are already two white whale that i want to find out at a reasonable price in 2018.
    The David Michelinie&Tod McFarlane Spider-Man Omnibus and Spider-Man by Roger Stern Omnibus.

    I was able to find a Tomb of Dracula v1 for cover price. That completed my back log, so now it's just keeping up with new releases

    If I remember correctly they are pretty much separate series until the New Ultimates vs Ultimate Avengers/Death of Spider-man story. Which is probably the only one worth reading IMHO. Here is a reading order I've found online, I can't remember exactly how it went down it was years ago I've read it and honestly it's not the most memorably read (except for the Spidey stuff)

    Although if Ultimatum didn't make you stop reading the titles you will probably enjoy it more than I did.

    The omnibus? Nice score if so. I want to dive into ToD but can't justify the prices for a blind buy based on art alone.

    Tomb of Dracula Omnibus vol 1 ... man that brings back some memories. I remember about six or seven years ago now I guess those were getting harder and harder to find. I lucked into a handful of copies of them (the DM variant cover version) for cover price on a back issue website and bought four or five of them and flipped them for close to double my money overall. That was a good white whale find.

    Somebody on these boards years & years ago was buying TODv2 off of amazon marketplace for like $10 or less (!!) or something crazy like that and then flipping them on eBay. The marketplace sellers didn't know what they had apparently and the prices kept going lower and lower to silly resale prices. They posted a picture once upon a time with like 20 copies of the book all lined up on a shelf. Crazy.

    Somebody up thread was talking about the Neal Adams Batman Omnibus. Didn't know that one was now a white whale either. I've got one stashed away somewhere in boxes from when we moved a couple years ago. Always wanted to read it but never got around to it yet.

    Yeah, I didn't know it was a whale. I bought it when it came out...Read it...Sold it because it was mostly pretty bad. I probably made $10 buck profit but I just wanted to make my money back. I got it for 50 percent off since I bought it the first week of release.

    I like Adams' art but the man can't write worth a shit. I've also never been impressed by Bob "Zany" Haney.
