A bit slower than expected, but we're closing in on 10,000. We'll need another re-incarnation of this thread soon.
It goes beyond basic "omni" knowledge. its basic knowledge period. Anytime you expose paper (and really anything) to an extreme change in temperature. Warping can result.
I have two omnis arriving (hopefully) tomorrow and I know that I will not be removing them from their shrink wrap until after they are close to my house temperature.
Moral of the story: DONT. READ. OMNIBUS. OUT. IN. THE. SUN.
Attention! Invading alien scum! I am Bentley, scourge of man, destroyer of hope, and I also have a passing interest in dinosaurs -- Prepare to surrender now!
A lot of people here are collectors--keeping books in pristine condition is #1 priority.
But I'm with you... it's just comics. I sometimes read outside on the deck in full sunshine. Usually not for long since the pages reflect the light and can make it hard to see the pages.
This is all the stuff I currently have pre-ordered:
Daredevil Vol. 1 (Waid)
The Death of Return of Superman Omnibus
Superman: The Golden Age Omnibus Vol. 1
Fear Agent Library Vol. 2
The Animal Man Omnibus
The Mighty Thor Omnibus Vol. 2
I don't currently own any Absolute's or Omni's so I am very excited for some of this stuff. I also have Fear Agent Library Vol. 1 on order but it's OOS at Amazon.
To be honest, the Marvel Now Thor does not excite me at all. I guess because everything has been a somewhat extension of JMS' run up until now, and it sounds like it's a clean break, with flashbacks/flashforwards following 3 Thors in different time periods. Not saying it couldn't be cool, but totally different.
I'm trying to get caught up with Fraction's Thor so that I can read JiM finally!
