    Dc seemed to be treating every kid as like 6 years old, whereas Lee treated them as 10-12 or something.
    I also missed out on a lot of the SA Marvel omnis, but it they reprinted the SA X-Men, Thor, Iron Man and a few others, I'd probably pick them up

    And when the Daredevil (Silver Age) Omnibus Vol. 1 eventually goes out of print, it's very possible you may regret not picking it up now . Therefore, if you're on the fence and you have a few extra bucks, it may be wise to take advantage of that extra IST discount and pick up the DM Variant as it will probably be worth more in the future than the Regular Variant (for collectors anyway). Unless, of course, you prefer the Alex Ross cover. Btw, I reckon Silver Age Daredevil is much more readable than Silver Age Thor and Iron Man

They promise to never send stuff like Solo, Occupy Avengers, A-Force Presents, etc. I've been getting it since they started last year!
    Random stuff is no good for the serious collector. Duplicates would happen, and honestly who has the shelf space?

    Even marvel is hit or miss on SA material. Iron man and Thor (two of my all time faves) are really hard to get through. But then FF and spidey and avengers are great. So it is variable even for Marvel

    I don't like your logic Raffi. It's not good for my wallet

    Just putting it out there is all I really enjoy the service. It's been great to get titles that I might not possibly have tried before. I read everything X-Men, half the Avengers and Spider-Man stuff. So when I get a box with Hulk, Deadpool, Punisher, and Fantastic Four books it's a nice surprise and something that I wouldn't have normally read for cheap!

    That will put it at No. 3 in the All Time Best Selling Omnibus List with regards to the premiere month of release.

    I'll try and put together the full Marvel Collected Editions list for May 2017 by tomorrow.
    This only solidifies that we should have no problem getting an ASM vol.4 with the next Spider-man (Holland) movie circa 2019. No way the number crunchers miss that.
    Right?!

    I know it took "forever" to sell out but perhaps they overprinted TIH vol.1, the fact it's STILL in the top 10 should show the interest in the character.
    We may have to see how the Planet Hulk and WWHulk Omnis do upon release but I feel right now, if a TIH vol.2 Omni were done it would sell well. The contents within are more cherished by Hulk fans than the vol.1 content I do believe.

    When he first launched New Avengers they did not have a companion Avengers book. When they relaunched Avengers they also started New Avengers again at number 1. So this upcoming collection would be post first New Avengers volume.

    I think that Avengers series started with the Heroic Age, after Siege. Before Siege we had NA, Mighty Avengers (Slott) and Dark Avengers but no regular Avengers title. After Siege it was NA and Avengers running parallel both written by Bendis. If I remember correctly.

    As for Hulk I don't think you will like any of those. Waid's was kinda flat and nothing special and Aaron's was crazy with inconsistent art. I really liked the second story arc, it was just over the top stupid fun but most people hate it. Couldn't care less about the first arc with Silvestri on art.

    I would bet they are more cherished but there is that price tag for the WWHulk books and if I'm not mistaken they're going to be somewhat thin.

    Planet Hulk is overpriced, but WWH is i think 1200 pages for $125, which really isn't bad compared to other books that size.
    Cyclops was right

    You remember correctly. Both Heroic Age series started off decent enough (and I'd already decided I disliked Bendis' work long before they launched), but quickly dissolved into a mess. IMHO.

    As for Hulk I don't think you will like any of those. Waid's was kinda flat and nothing special and Aaron's was crazy with inconsistent art. I really liked the second story arc, it was just over the top stupid fun but most people hate it. Couldn't care less about the first arc with Silvestri on art.
    I really wish we were getting another Hulk Epic in place of one (or both!) of these collections.

    The $125 price tags are ridiculous; they're going to hurt sales, and then Marvel's going to interpret that as a lack of interest... lather, rinse, repeat. *Sigh*.
