I don't know if you're the one to ask, but since you're in somewhat the same department, I figured that it couldn't hurt to ask. But, aside from the Ultimates Annual, are there any other extras in the Ultimates Omnibus? Just curious, because I want to know if I'm going to have to sell my other Ultimates OHCs.

I bet it collects the extras from the OHCs, but that's it.

The Omnibus is about 60 pages larger than the 2 OSHC combined. Part of that is the Annual 1 that I believe is not collected in the first OSHC, I could be wrong there. I bet there will be at least a few pages of extras that are not in the 2 OSHCs.

I wonder if the Omnibus will eventually do to trade sales what the trades did to singles. I'm always a little disappointed when I have a bunch of trades and then the "bigger better faster" Omnibus gets announced. :/

S'kinda like when I got all (almost) the Buffy Seasons and then that full series awesomeness came out (and Gilmore Girls, and...). Also why I'm not buying BSG DVDs. They've GOTTA do a full series one!

This is getting like DVDs where you get the regular version, 6 months later you get the extended edition, 6 months after that you get the directors cut, 3 months after that you get the ultimate version...

Ultimate Spiderman has the singles, trades, PHCs, OHCs...

It's getting stupid!!!!

I really prioritize my reading nowadays. Stuff I can't wait to read gets bought as singles (and sometimes later as trades also), stuff I'm curious about but not following closely gets bought as trades, and when I buy an Omnibus, it's usually well after I've heard a million good things about a book I've never read. My only Omnibus to date is Alias, but if cash flow was a bit freer right now, I'd probably buy the Bru Captain America and a lot of the older stuff as Omnis too.

Step away from the collector mentality, and get what you want. Or just wait to see if what you want is coming.

Personally, I buy the singles, and if I loved the singles, and there is a nice Omnibus coming, I'll get that for the shelf.

No, this is like how when Marvel comes out with trade paperback collections of a popular series, and then a while later they release one premium hardcover of the series.

Oh, I don't buy them all - screw that! I just get the Ultimate OHCs but did make the mistake of starting to get the New Avengers PHCs before finding out that these were also coming out in OHC format.

I just wish that they'd decide on a format and stick to it! Oh, and annuals should be included in trades as standard, not as a tacked on as a "special bonus".

Hey Jen when is the second Bendis Daredevil omnibus coming out? It seems odd that Burbaker's comes out before Bendis's becasue Bendis's story flows into Brubaker's run.

Cool, thanks. I'll just have to wait and see then, because I love the extras in Ultimates 2's HC. Then again, when it comes to extras, I'm all about seeing the pencilled pages, which is why I loved the House of M and Civil War OHCs.

Jen,
Don't be scared,No don't be shy
We use to do this all the time
you know it Jen

Jen,
We could be happy now
So jet across the coast and country, Jen
And sometimes Jennifer,
You think for too long and then your chance is gone

The choice we're meant to make
Is one we'll never take
All you have to do is say

Jen,
Don't be scared, no don't be shy
We used to do this all the time
Ya-Ya-You know it Jen
It's you and me, what could that mean?
You can't pretend we're only friends then walk away.

Jen,
I think you tried just a little hard
Acting like something that you're not
Jen
I wanna make you feel the way you should
You have to let things go to keep them close
What we do today
Already has a name
Is anything but a mistake

Jen,
Don't be scared, no don't be shy
We used to do this all the time
Ya-Ya-You know it Jen
It's you and me, what could that mean?
You can't pretend we're only friends then walk away.

ooooohh
oooohhh
oooooo

No one's looking now
Take a chance, come on
Could do anything you want

Jen
Put your arms around someone soft
Take it as it comes, trust your heart
Trust me

You know it, Jen
Put your arms around someone soft
Take it as it comes, trust your heart
Trust me

You know it, Jen
Put your arms around someone soft
Take it as it comes, trust your heart
Trust me

Trust your heart, trust me

I am all over the Iron Fist Omnibus, Daredevil by Brubaker Omnibus, and the Avengers Dissassembled OHC. I have the Ultimates OHCS so I'm debating on upgrading but I think I'm content with them unless there's anything major in the extras. It also depends on what my $$$ situation is at the time.

12-16-2008, 02:39 PM
The Iron Fist omnibus would appeal, since I haven't read it and want to, but the price is wrong for me. The Ultimate Team-Up OHC was only fifty pages fewer and the price for that was $40. If it were $50 or even $60 I'd consider it reasonable, but $75 feels like a ripoff. I'm not keen on these omnibuses generally, they're overpriced and too unwieldly to handle (although I know in this case there's no way of splitting the Brubaker/Fraction run into two halves) - the old OHCs were the perfect price and format, it's a shame they seem to be getting phased out. Still, Jen does a professional job on all of these things no matter what :)

Even better: the Absolute Editions which are almost all 45 bucks. I'd never considered buying any of those but for that price I might pick up 2-3 at some point.
