Just snagged a Tomb of Dracula Omibus vol 1 NM for cover price from mycomicshop.com. Nice! Even better I used my company provided AmEx gift card for Christmas to pay for it! Score!
Any word on an Uncanny X-Force Omnibus happening anytime soon?
Death of Omnibus - Early December 2009
Lives Omnibus - End of March 2011
2 years 2 months between the first two
1.5 years between the last two
I'd say if we don't see something solicited for the last quarter of 2013 (~2.5 years), then I'd say it would be time to worry, as much as one could possibly worry about Omnibuses.
Assuming the Brubaker Omnibuses still make money, and there are two more Omnibuses to come, and first remaining Omnibus comes in fall 2013, then the second one would possibly be the last quarter of 2015 assuming Marvel keeps up its slower pace of an average of 2 years between volumes.
The Trial Of Captain America Omnibus by Ed Brubaker
Collecting: Captain America #602-605; Who Will Wield the Shield?; #606-610; Steve Rogers: Super-Soldier #1-4; Captain America #611-615 and #615.1, #616-619; plus material from Captain America 70th Anniversary Magazine
Captain America Volume 6 Omnibus by Ed Brubaker
Collecting: Captain America Vol. 6 #1-19
While probably unlikely, there's also the potential for:
Captain America and… Omnibus by Ed Brubaker, Marc Andreyko, James Asmus and Cullen Bunn
Collecting: Captain America and Bucky #620-628; Captain America and Hawkeye #629-632; Captain America and Iron Man #633-635; Captain America and Namor #635.1; Captain America and Black Widow #636-640
Winter Soldier Vol. 1 (Oversized) by Ed Brubaker
Collecting: Winter Soldier #1-5; Fear Itself #7.1; #6-14
But I guess it all depends on how strong Marvel thinks the oversized market is for any book with Brubaker's name attached to it.
My Christmas Lee/Kirby Cap Omnibus arrived from Amazon today. Those bums sent it in an empty box again. Luckily, it arrived without even a dented corner.
Now I've got to decide where to put it! If I put it on my expensive custom-built maple shelf downstairs, I'm going to have to move some books to my old shelf upstairs. Talk about First World problems.
I need to covert the basement into my mancave. Then I can really post some pictures in the Shelf Porn blog on CBR.
I made updates to the page 1 list as the past 2 weeks had some titles moving around.
Simonson Thor and Silver Age Captaion America now join the OOP list. Hulk is only left at CGN (now at $80). Women of Marvel moved to the Almost OOP list since Amazon is now sold out. IST/TOW/CGN will have that title for a long time.
I also added in a lot of the Direct Market cover info on which are sold out and which are available. Let me know if I missed anything.
As of 12/29/12
72 Omnibus titles have been released to date. 35 titles are currently Out of Print with another 4 titles getting close. We are on the edge of having 50% of the omnibus line OOP
For the 4 titles that are getting close to going Out of Print I have listed sites that still have them in stock. You can also still find deals for them on Ebay and Amazon Marketplace.
Use this very helpful guide to know what issues are in each omnibus, cost per page, which era etc... http://crushingkrisis.com/collecting...ibus-editions/

In the last year I've snagged ASM v1 1st print Alex Ross cover version for $90, all three NXM OHCs, ToD v1, XM Messiah CompleX OHC, Thor SA v1 and I don't remember what else. Usually I flip them and then use the profits on upcoming pre-orders & new releases.
Just scored an Elektra Omnibus still wrapped for $58 out of the door! my LCS was having a Sale through Sunday. Been eying his for a while, finally pulled the trigger. I've been searching for the Elektra Lives in any format and now I got it in the Omnibus form. I'm stoked!
First post has been updated to include Omnibus updated list.
My review of Absolute Dark Victory
If I were a MOD I would ban anyone who uses the stupid word "omniboo."
Wow Simonson Thor is just taking off now that it is OOP.
CGN is now $150 for regular version and $200 for DM version. They also raised the price on amazon marketplace to $180. Every time they put a few up there they sold out at $155 price.
This was a title that could have been ordered the week before Christmas for $69. Then IST and TOW sold out and off to races it went.
Curious what the more desirable Frank Miller DAREDEVIL Omnibus is - the black and red split dust jacket collection (with the companion and Elektra as well) or the regular cover(s) from the actual series? What is your favorite?
I'm kind of digging the red and black style that Marvel went with. Wonder why they haven't attempted this 'VARIANT' style with other omnibus'.
Also, is one style worth more than the other?
Happy Festive Season everyone!
