"Why is it NOW ok?" you ask...
Simple.
I finally broke down and bought a run of 1-24 off of ebay.
You see, in times past whenever I tried to be strong and wait for what I thought was an eventual over-sized hardcover the book would never show. After months and months, I would breakdown and buy the issues or trade and then?
Marvel would put out a nice fat over-sized hardcover with extras and everything.
So now I'm sending a clear signal to the Marvel gang - it is now a-ok to print the damn thing! I bough the book in another format!

Excellent! I'll give the printer the go ahead to print the book! They have all the files, we were just waiting for you to buy the issues!

Thanks for letting us know! It's much quicker than us having to send our spies out!! ;-) :lol:

Um...did you not see the advance solicitations for next month?

Captain America Volume 1: Winter Soldier OHC collecting #1-12.






JUST KIDDING. I think. I haven't looked at advance solicitations.

If anything was deserving of an OHC, it's The Winter Soldier story. (Captain America 1-6, 8-9, 11-14.)

More deserving than Planet Hulk, IMO.

It's definitive of the character and series, and did the impossible. It brought Bucky back and was done so well, that the bitchy and whiney internet couldn't really find anything to bitch and whine about. That's worth it's weight in gold!

I have the volume 1 & 2 hardcovers, but I'd still get the OHC.

I'm waiting for the Brubaker Captain America OHC goodness to start as well, though I do read the book in singles. But when that OHC arrives, the singles it collects will go to the library or a hospital. :)

Ah, you're the reason. Some one was trying to convince me it was because of PHC's or some such.

Now Marvel HAS to put out an OHC, or it'll look like they don't want to help good causes. They've been having enough PR trouble lately, what with the delays, mischaracterizations, ruining Spider-Man, changing a monthly series into a 5 issue mini series without much notice, etc... A Captain America: Winter Soldier OHC could go a long way in healing those wounds. :D

Care to explain?Planet Hulk has been just as important to Hulk's character as WS has been to Cap.

But judging from your sig,asking may be pointless.
