    True. It took me two reads through to appreciate it, but the second time was awesome. For a Marvel comic in the early 80s, it's surprisingly dark. No spoilers, but the ending is pretty incredible. If...

    Hadn't purchased an Omnibus since X-Force came out, but picked up West Coast Avengers vol. 1 for $30, Avengers: The Crossing for $29 and Acts of Vengeance Crossovers for $21, all from eBay. Shipping...

    Sure, Bendis owes a lot to Miller, but his Daredevil run was amazing, and far beyond what can generally be expected of funnybooks. It was a combination of the Miller take on Daredevil, with some of...

    I bought that book for $40 and recently sold it for $125. That's a bit of a brag, but also a bit of surprise. I really hated just about every story in the book; I get collector mentality, but I get...

    Acts of Vengeance is so much fun. It's kind of like a Saturday morning cartoon, but in a way that the writers are in on the joke. Plus there's some Christopher Priest Spider-Man issues included that...

    Eh. I've been reading Uncanny X-Men in Essential lately. I switch to OHC when if I have it in that format, but it's a great cheap way to fill gaps.

    I'm a marketplace seller on Amazon. I send them my items in a box, they put them on a shelf, and they ship them with Prime shipping when they sell. They take about 25% of the purchase price, so it's...

    I paid $150 for UXM and $130 for the Miller Daredevil, both, as we know, recently re-solicited. However, I got to read them back in 2011 and not have to wait two years for a reprint. So if you want...

    Ditto. Also, Acts of Vengeance took place in the main books, with Atlantis Attacks and Evolutionary War were Annual specials. The Annuals were often by B-teams, whereas AoV used A-team talent.

    I bought it and love it, but haven't come close to finishing it. It's pretty hard to get through. However, if you look at it as a historic document, it's pretty great. I paid around $40 too and it's...

    Do you like the Serpent Society and lots of snake-themed gags? And ill-defined villains? And lots of water? And generally poor art? Then you'll love that book!

    In all seriousness, it's a good...

    Civil War was the event that got me back into comics after a 15-year lapse, so it holds a special place for me. I read much of it in trades -- the main book, Fantastic Four, Amazing Spider-Man, Iron...

    I paid $150 for my used copy of UXM V1 and it's on that super-thick, weirdly colored paper -- or the prior owner peed on it. Anyway, it's among the very best of the Omnibuses I own, and I feel that I...

    However, I am happy to have V1s of the ASM and UXM books; I can't imagine...

    No fooling. I bought a bunch of Omnibuses this time last year. Here's the list, and prices as best I can remember;

    X-Statix: $50
    Uncanny X-men: $160
    Miller Daredevil Companion: $75

    I read it. There's a ton of great content on the 50s through 70s. Less so thereafter, although the Shooter era and the launch of.Image are coveted pretty well. I enjoyed what I read, but was hoping...
