Thread on Comic binding:
How to open an omnibus
Q: What are the best places to purchase omnibus that have a good price, reasonable shipping costs and package the box properly?
A: www.cheapgraphicnovels.com (Sell omnibus and oversized hardcovers for 50% off on release week)
www.instocktrades.com (have an excellent packaging reputation)
For Canadian buyers...
Great prices (comparable to Amazon.ca)
Arrives very quickly (3-4 days when choosing standard shipping)
Free standard shipping over $25
They charge directly when you pre-order (this could be a negative to some folks)
Amazon is a "buy from at your own risk" vendor in that they don't do a very good job packaging the product, BUT getting a replacement is hassle free and amazon prime members get free 2-day shipping. They also can ship to many countries at a much cheaper price than your usual vendors.
Q: Is there a place to get an out of print (OOP) omnibus for cheap?
A: There is no super secret place for getting old OOP omnibus for real cheap. If someone knew of a super secret way to get an OOP omnibus for cheap (if they were smart) they would not share it with us. If you want an OOP omnibus you need to search locally and/or look on ebay and hope to get lucky. It can happen, but just watch the thread and see what happens. People do get lucky, but there is no trick to it. It often involves being at the right place at the right time.
Q: Will such and such run get an omnibus treatment?
A: Marvel has no pattern whatsoever for releasing an omnibus. There are many things that have not gotten an omnibus treatment that there is high demand for such as Uncanny X-men Vol. 2 and Hickman's Fantastic Four run, while things such as Avengers The Crossing and Man-Thing get an omnibus. In otherwords, your guess is as good as ours. However, anytime a Marvel movie comes out there does seem to be an omnibus that also comes out. In the beginning Marvel would only release a silver age omnibus to go along with the movie. Now it seems that whenever a new movie comes out there is a silver age tie in AND a more modern/popular run. Thor, Captain America, The Avengers, Spiderman all followed that pattern.
Q: How can I get adequate insurance on these expensive omnibus that are OOP
Q. How do I know if an upcoming Marvel hardcover will have sewn or glued binding?Originally Posted by Jelybely8
