Is it worth getting?
Is it worth getting?
Yes. It contains the best storyline ever published by marvel and Alan Davis' art is amazing. Highly recommended.
My amazon reviews, check them out sometime!
It's very good, though the colouring is a bit iffy.
The Moore-era Captain Britain is also the first place to designate the Marvel Universe as 616, so I guess it's kind of important historically speaking.
The Omnibus basically contains the better half of all of Captain Britain's pre-Excalibur appearances. Everything that Alan Davis was involved with too. It's good stuff, and comes with some pretty solid back-matter too.
Would very much recommend.
Definitely pick it up. You won't be disappointed. Excellent storytelling from Alan Moore and Jamie Delano combined with the beautiful artwork of Alan Davis.
If you're an Alan Davis fan-- and everyone should be-- you owe yourself this. You can watch him develop as an artist over time, from the raw but amazing talent in those Thorpe stories to the master we know today by the time those Delano stories come around.
There is actually a huge Omnibus thread right here

The original 3 omnibus oversized hardcover thread started off as a simple question and grew into one of the premier threads at CBR.

How amazing is it that this thread is on its fourth run? Loving it.
slaine: Tell me about bad delivery conditions. I'm up north as well.
Wait is AOA Omnibus really next week? I gotta get money in my account if so.
I think AOA is releasing to comic sites (TOW, etc...) next week, since it is still listed as early March on Amazon/Barnes.
Tales of wonder has it listed as the Feb 22nd.
