Yes, Quesada cover
Yes, Bagley cover
Yes, whatever cover I can get
No, I have the 2004 pre-omni HC
No, I have it in other formats (OHCs, TPBs, etc)
No, I don't like the story
There's no place for my vote, which is "No, I plan to buy it in TPB". I wanted to buy it until I realized that buying it is actually a few bucks more expensive than buying the "Ultimate Collection" paperbacks, which I think look way cooler on the shelf and are easier to read. I also feel more comfortable letting someone borrow a paperback. That's what I'll be buying

I'll buy it. I hope they bring these out all the way to Death of Spider-Man, and include Marvel team up
But if you're going to buy trades then I'd get the first three Ultimate Collections and buy the remaining regular trades pronto, as you never know when they'll go out of print and if/when Marvel will publish more UCs.
I hope the Omnibuses come out with less than 12 months between them.
I think it should be done like this:
Vol 1 - Hardcovers 1-3
Vol 2 - Hardcovers 4-5, Ultimate Marvel Team-Up
Vol 3 - Hardcovers 6-9
Vol 4 - Hardcovers 10-11
Vol 5 - Hardcovers 12-13, Ultimate Fallout
I don't want UMTU in these books at all. Middling quality aside, its really something that belongs in its own OHC. Its not an actual continuing part of the story, its a companion to the story. I do think excepts from Ultimate Fallout should be in the last volume though.
Marvel may have thrown a wrench into the machine though. Amazon lists a "Death of Spider-Man" omnibus due for release in November (meaning the book will be announced this month). They say its 600 pages and given the list of authors its most likely going to be a replacement for the 13th oversized hardcover and not part of this series. However, it really screws things up. Do we buy this book in November in case Marvel doesn't release an Ultimate Spider-Man Volume 5? Or do we wait and see and risk not getting the last part of the series in omnibus form? It could be they're playing it out so they release three more full sized omnibuses (collecting 4-6, 7-9 and 10-12) rather than have three full sized omnibuses and two smaller ones. But we have no way of knowing and its kinda frustrating.
I doubt Marvel will just randomly leave us hanging and make random Omnibuses from a finite series and never complete it.. but stranger things have happened.
The Death of Spider-Man omnibus is most likely taking the place of the 13th hardcover, since it picks up right from where Volume 12 left off.
This makes me think that it will get recollected into another omnibus volume when the time comes.
I've had one of Balfro's patented change of hearts and am getting this now.
Quick question: Has a Death of Spiderman Omnibus been confirmed??
