This September, The Evolutionary War is collected in a 472-page omnibus, with two covers by Lee Garbett and John Buscema.
The storyline – which focuses on one of the world’s leading geneticists, The High Evolutionary, declaring war on the Earth – was the first of its kind; a crossover spread over several annuals in 1988, from X-Factor Annual #03 to Avengers Annual #17. This tradition continued with storylines like Atlantis Attacks and Lifeform, the former of which has also been released in omnibus format.
Okay, so with an RRP of £55.99, how can you save a bit of money? Well, here are the current offers from the ‘Big Three,’ as I’ve taken to calling them:
As you can see, it’s best to pre-order with fp.co.uk, but as it’s released in September, it might be worth waiting to see if it drops down a bit. There’s a chance it might, but only by a couple of quid.

Come back soon; it looks like October will see the release of several exciting omnibuses…
