Leave a comment

You can pre-order the upcoming West Coast Avengers omnibus for just £45.00 – a saving of 40% off the RRP of £75!

The offer ends on Wednesday 7th November, and all you have to do is head over to Forbidden Planet International. The offer only applies to the cover by Al Milgrom; the Greg Land cover is available for £50.25, which is what the Milgrom cover is expected to rise to in just over a week’s time.

Here’s the blurb:

“Earth’s Mightiest Heroes head west! Hawkeye splits from the Avengers and sets up shop in California. But the newly recruited members of Avengers ‘franchise’ – including Tigra, Wonder Man, Mockingbird and a new Iron Man – soon find themselves in over their heads! Meanwhile, Ultron and the Grim Reaper target Wonder Man’s “brother,” the Vision – and the Vision’s wife, the Scarlet Witch! Can the West Coasters keep this complex bloodline from getting bloodier? Plus: Both Avengers teams are betrayed from within! Also guest-starring the the Thing, Hank Pym, Firebird and Nick Fury!

Zombies are really popular right now, probably due to the success of The Walking Dead, also written by Kirkman, so this ‘Zomnibus’ is bound to fly off shelves. Artist, Sean Phillips is currently working alongside Ed Brubaker on the rave-reviewed Fatale.

After the 40% offer ends, it’s likely to rise to about £64 on fp.co.uk, while amazon.co.uk have it for the terrible price of £78.68.

The New Avengers omnibus and Stephen King’s The Stand are both set for release at the same time as the Zomnibus – so September definitely won’t be kind to your wallet!

STAND OMNIBUS SLIPCASE

The Stand is a classic tale of good vs. evil, loss weighed against redemption and despair pitted against hope. It is an apocalyptic vision of man’s battle to save life against a worldwide plague of death. When the viral strain dubbed “Captain Trips” works its way across the face of the country, the painfully few survivors are launched into a nightmare that’s only just begun – but for the Dark Man, Randall Flagg, it’s a dream come true. Based on the masterpiece of apocalyptic horror by celebrated author Stephen King, this lavish adaptation is packed with extras in a two-volume slipcased set!

Collects The Stand: Captain Trips #01- 05; The Stand: American Nightmares#01- 05; The Stand: Soul Survivors #01- 05; The Stand: Hardcases #01- 05; The Stand: No Man’s Land #01- 05; The Stand: The Night Has Come #-01- 05; and The Stand Sketchbook.

  • Writer: Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa;
  • Artist: Mike Perkins.

All three omnibuses are due on 19th September 2012.
