While you're on the subject of Daredevil, have you guys seen this? http://screenrant.com/daredevil-rebo...-sandy-167969/
Well today is a disappointing day for me. The Knightfall New Edition TPB finally came out and it uses that crappy newspaper real type paper. Out of all the omnibus being released getting a complete collection of Knightfall was the thing I was most looking forward to. Then DC pulls that crap of using the cheap crappy paper. Using that paper was the only thing that was going to stop me from buying this release and that is exactly what happened.
Im glad Marvel GETS IT in terms of using quality paper that is more than capable of looking good.
I often question Marvel for the amount of content and what they charge in an omnibus, but I NEVER have to be concerned about the actual quality of paper in their hardcovers.
Sorry for the rant, but sometimes you are so pissed you just have to share it.
Before people scream "off topic" sometimes you have to see things being done the WRONG way before you can appreciate those who do it the right way.
Thank you Marvel for using high quality paper in your omnibus and comics in general.

I don't mind, honestly. It's how the issues were originally published. Except for maybe the Shadow of the Bat tie-in issues...which as I recall were originally printed on glossier/upgraded paper. I can't be 100% since I haven't read the original issues since they were first published nearly 20 years ago.
Either way, it was a perfect opportunity to upgrade the quality of these stories and DC struck out again.
The Ultimate Death of Spider-man Omnibus sounds ok to me. I have the first 11 (soon to be 12) OSHC's and finishing them off with DoSM would be fine.
So Friday is going to be a big Marvel event day for me.
Just got the email from Amazon that my ASM vol.2 omnibus should arrive Friday..just before I rush out to see The Avengers!!

So yeah, in an age where we bash Marvel, at least they hook us up with some great paper. Even the Age of Apocalypse Prelude TPB which gets heat for crappy paper was still better than that.
This will be a good week for me comics-wise. Kree/Skrull wars comes tomorrow, X-Sanction will be here today and the original Rocket Racoon mini is a bargain book on Amazon so it will be here Thursday.
I like how quickly X-Sanction and AvX are being released and put in collected format.
All that said, it is still just conjecture at this point. It'll probably be included in the solicits later this month, so we'll know for sure then.
My comic collection. Go on, have a look. You know you want to .
