1) Continue in present format of including 6ish issues of each title in OHCs going forward
2) Split them up now, and vol. 2 of each (New and A) would start over with issue #1
3) Split them up now, and vol. 2 of each (New and A) would continue with issue #7
4) Not make anymore OHCs, and just keep them churning out in PHCs (although this is unlikely)

And I'm still going to buy it eventually because its the only place to get the Avengers Prime in over sized format. That art deserves to be over sized.

That's one of the reasons I bought it because of the Prime series being oversized. Plus I wanted to try both series to see how I liked them. The art wasn't too bad but the JRJR art I didn't get into that well.
So how early does CGN put stuff up for sale? It looks like they don't do preorders but UTOSM was available for purchase as early as Tuesday (released Wednesday). I ask because I also want ASM vol 2 and think I'll just get them together because of shipping.
Anyone got the first Claremont X-Men omnibus? Why is Dazzler purple? Does mine have a printing error?
Marriage Era Spidey bashers are shameful opportunists (Like you REALLY didn't enjoy a single Spidey comic in 20 years)
Conversely, BND haters REALLY need to get over their continuity elitism already
If you had the choice, would you go for the 1st or 2nd printing of the Amazing Spider-man omnibus volume 1? I know the 2nd has the better sewn binding, but my gut instinct is to go for the 1st printing just because. My purpose for getting it is for Stan Lee to sign at a comic-con.
Also I know the Fantastic Four Vol.1 had two printings, are the differences similar?
I see no reason why anybody would chose the 1st over the 2nd printing, all other things being equal.
No idea why you would prefer the 1st print. Sewn binding vs. "just because" is no contest in my book.
I was thinking the 1st might somehow be more "collectible", like how people collect 1st edition books.
Thanks for the replies.
Look at what happened to the price of New X-Men once the new printing was announced.
When it comes to an Omnibus the printing doesn't matter to me. It comes down to prerogative and perception I'd suppose.
My perception is that even a first print is still material that is being reprinted, sometimes for a 3rd or 4th time. My prerogative is to have an affordable, nice looking, sewn if possible book.
Someone else my perceive that a 1st printing Omnibus is as important to them as an actual 1st printing of the book itself.
Value is what someone will pay and it seems the Omni market as a chasm on what is considered important. Find the guy who thinks like you and pay accordingly.

These books don't have the importance of regular print first editions because they're ALREADY reprints of the source material (the individual floppy issues).
So really, you should just go for the better product that will stand the test of time. You'll appreciate that signature in twenty years more when your book is still together.
