I was eyeing that Lee/Kirby Cap recently, too, but decided I all I really wanted there was the Steranko issues. I just ordered Cap Masterworks vol 3, which I think I'll be more than happy with. Granted, not OHC, but signifigantly cheaper!

B&N now has John Carter & Avengers in stock. Use coupon code U7K4X3B for 20% off or code X3X8W7N if you're using a Visa card for 20% off (Credit to Kodave for the codes).
So John Carter becomes $48.88 plus tax and Avengers becomes $47.86 plus tax.
But Dark Phoenix posted this morning that the Avengers Omnibus is at Instock for $50 with free shipping so if you decide on Avengers I would go with Instocktrades. Plus you get to choose which cover you want.
When AOA is released in another week or two you can get it for $62.34 plus tax if these 20% coupons still work. If not I am sure new coupons will be out there.
Granted the shipping is hit or miss but I have never had a problem getting a replacement sent. Even had to do a replacement twice on one of the titles.
Keeping a watchful eye on titles you want is always good as you can catch them before they go OOP. Just look for the trend of Amazon, B&N and TOW starting to sell out of them.
We have a lot more people in here now since the first thread which is great for finding deals and getting the best bang for our buck. Here is to this thread going up to Part XXV and beyond over the next few years.

What's even worse for me is, I have such a limited budget, around $100 a month for comics. I buy online, which helps a lot, but it's like, do I buy Absolute this or this Omnibus, or do I buy a bunch of cheaper HC's here and there?
I am bigger on the Marvel Premiere Classic line right now. I am going after the direct market variants. I have about 20 and another 15 on their way, some old and some new and now, I'm thinking about getting into the Marvel Masterworks HC's. As far as the MPC's go, I think I have a good chance of having all of them in the next year to two years. I have some of the harder to get ones and some are on their way.
Comics kinda suck.
Today, I make no demands... no threats! But, one day, I shall voice demands -- and all shall obey them!
Has there been any confirmation on an AoA companion book?
Marvel cosmic needs Jim Starlin back. As long as he is prohibited from using the word 'myriad' ever again.
