“I’ll take Manhattan”: 40% off Spider-man!

Leave a comment

It’s been a while since the last Spider-man omnibus was released – 2007, in fact! – and it’s now out-of-print.

So it’s a pleasant surprise to find August’s solicitations include an Amazing Spider-man by David Michelinie and Todd McFarlane omnibus.

Amazing Spider-man #297

The weighty 848-page tome will collect Amazing Spider-man #296- 329, as well as material from Spectacular Spider-man Annual #10, written by Michelinie, and drawn by McFarlane, Alex Saviuk, Erik Larsen and Colleen Doran. The omnibus will be issued with two covers by McFarlane, adapted from ASM #300-301 featuring Spidey in his red-and-blue costume… and his black!

The run sees Spider-man going toe-to-toe with villainous heavy-hitters, like Doctor Octopus, Venom, the Rhino, Magneto, the Lizard, Scorpion and Hydro-Man. And let’s not forget the return of Spidey’s first super-villain, the Chameleon.

Amazing Spider-man #303

Anyone who has read the Michelinie/McFarlane run knows it is a true classic, and this omnibus will be snapped up fast!

It’s lucky, then, that forbiddenplanet.co.uk is offering Cover B (with the black costume) with a 40% discount, bringing it down to just £45! Be quick; the offer ends tomorrow (2ND MARCH), but don’t panic if you miss it; Cover A is available at £50.25, and Cover B is expected to level with this once the offer ends.

Let me know what you think of the run if you’ve read it (some issues were recently reprinted in the English Collector’s Edition comic, Astonishing Spider-man) or if you’ve pre-ordered it. I haven’t seen any other sites offering it yet, so email me if you know of any great deals and, if I use that information, I’ll give you a shout-out!

40% off the X-Men!

Leave a comment

All X-Men fans will want to get straight to Forbiddenplanet.co.uk before Wednesday 10th November!

A direct follow-on from Volume One, The X-Men Omnibus Volume Two collects X-Men #32 – 66, Avengers #66, Ka-Zar #2 – 3, Marvel Tales #30 and Not Brand Echh #4 and #8, in 912 pages of homo superior goodness. The HC collects stories featuring the original X-team; Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Beast, Angel, Iceman and introducing Havok, Polaris and Sunfire! But with an RRP of £75.00, some prospective buyers might be put off.

But never fear…

There are some fantastic offers out there, but the best is definitely a massive 40% off at Forbiddenplanet.co.uk, bringing the price down to just £45.00. But be quick – the offer ends 10th November.

This is just for the standard edition; the variant – with cover by John Cassaday – will remain at £50.25 for now. The standard edition will probably return to this price too, once this initial 40% off pre-order deal has reached its deadline.

Amazon.co.uk has the same omnibus on pre-order for £56.25, while Forbiddenplanet.com has it for £51.74. Elsewhere, the best price on the ‘net is from whsmith.co.uk at £46.50; highly recommended for anyone who’s missed that 40% off bargain.

The omnibus is released in April 2011.
