Early 90s material likely to be HC'd sometime in the not too distant future:
- PAD/McFarlane Hulk
- PAD/Keown Hulk
- PAD/Frank Hulk
- Infinity Gauntlet
- Infinity War
- Infinity Crusade
- Operation Galactic Storm
- Maximum Carnage
- Michelinie/Larsen ASM
Less likely, but possible
- Guardians of the Galaxy
- Hama/Silvestri Wolverine
- Michelinie/Bagley ASM
- Ghost Rider (Danny Ketch)
- War Machine
As evidenced by the New Warriors Omni, any series in the Classic TPB line has a chance at the Omniboob treatment. Thunderstrike's TPB wasn't really part of the Classic line, but I'll always hold out hope for the Everyman Avenger
Ok so we know CGN is having a 50% off sale on Omnibuses starting on the 21st.
IST....is doing 45% off sale for November and December.
Did TOW do a Black Friday sale last year?
Shinobi, I think Thunderbolts by Busiek would be in that first section too
What we're going to get now is overpriced HCs for the main titles and overpriced TPBs for the rest of the line.
I can't see Marvel scaling back on its more profitable HCs and TPBs and NOT cutting back on its omnibus line.
And I can honestly say that I think it's crazy to believe all that early 1990s stuff will be HC'd in the near future.
If you have inside info that's awesome, but I think it damages the credibility of the thread if you are posting a wish-list as a coming soon list and new people come in here and see that list and think it might be the real deal.
My review of Absolute Dark Victory
If I were a MOD I would ban anyone who uses the stupid word "omniboo."
In reference to comments about my list of future early 90s HCs, I was basing it on Marvel's reproduction history. Maximum Carnage and Operation Galactic Storm both qualify as mega-events in the same vein as Atlantic Attacks and Acts of Vengeance, both of which have already received HCs. Other runs or storylines are likely to be HC'd due to the popularity of the creator/quality of the material. For this I'm talking about PAD's Hulk and Starlin's Infinity Trilogy, held by early 90s fans in the same regard as stories like Miller's DD and Simonson's Thor, which also received HCs.
I was a little torn on Guardians of the Galaxy. I wouldn't say it's a "slam dunk", because a movie release only guarantees one HC for its main characters, and the early 90s GotG doesn't have that popular creator/quality of content power as some of the newer GotG material. I would like to see the '90 series Omni'd up to the epic Galactus 25th issue spectacular, but you never know. Like someone mentioned previously, I don't even think the characters from the '90 series are in the movie.
And as for the other "less likely" to receive HC characters, like Thunderstrike and War Machine, I was really just recognizing other characters that have been part of the classic TPB line. There is not a SINGLE person that would've predicted a New Warriors Omni. And since there has been no mention of a new Warriors series, the only logical conclusion you can make is that they picked the Warriors because they've already got some of the material reprinted via the Classic line.
Oh, and Thunderbolts isn't early 90s. Anything post-Onslaught is dead to me, regardless of quality. So I only deal with pre-Onslaught topics

Operation Galactic Storm books 1 and 2 are both currently STILL available as cutouts from Diamond. You can find them for $10 and under at a lot of shops, so I hardly doubt Marvel will put those into HC.
There are plenty of others that are in the CLASSIC line that you didn't mention, though. You only mention those that you like -- from your favorite era, the 1990s.
