    Ah, didn't know that about WWH. I knew PH was thin.

    I wish we could get more PAD Hulks in epics or frekkin' PAD Hulk omnibuses. His run was the only solo Hulk stuff so far that I actually liked (based on the first epic) and can't wait to have more of it.
    No kidding. Would love three or four or however many PD omnibus collections

    I've been reading a bunch of Thor in anticipation of Gillen's Loki omibus.
    I re-read the JMS run (still great), then Gillen and Fraction, which I'm about a quarter of the way thru.
    That said, during my reading I came across Thor: Vikings by Garth Ennis published under the Max imprint. Wow! What a read. In typical fashion when Ennis writes Marvel supes, Thor took a semi-backseat to the story but it was super fun.

    I was looking at getting the two omnibus of the original X-Men, holy crap! Did they only print 5 copies or something? I really hope that they get a reprint

    They are putting those issues out in epics but it's not that great. There are much better silver age series out there.

    They took awhile to sell out. My LCS was selling vol 1 for $25 at some point.

    You're right.
    I wasn't a fan of the first omnibus. Vol. 2 - after Lee left - was a little bit better.

    Dazzler just announced as a small role in X-Men: Dark Phoenix.
    If it's a key, focused scene, like Quicksilver got in DoFP, this might be a perfect nudge for a Dazzler Omnibus!!!

    Exactly what I was thinking!

    On another note I just read the Firestar Origins trade and was wondering, if you could give me some opinions on the New Warriors Omnibus. As I see it that's the route to go if I want to read more about her early stories.

    I'm terrified of a new X-Men film, but it would be nice to see Dazzler and Lilandra!

    There's definitely a 90s feel to the NW omnibus but it's a fun read.

    if you find it for a good price go for it. It's 90s but Bagley's art was quite fresh and neat looking back then and he could actually tell a story. The NW core issues IMHO are great fun and even the skateboarding machine gun wielding kid is tolerable. On the other hand the X and Spidey crossovers were insufferable, I would recommend skipping those.
