NOTES:

Bold:     Best deal.

Fp:          Forbidden Planet ie. fp.co.uk =  forbiddenplanet.co.uk.

Italics:   Item not in stock at fp.com, but available to order. There is no guarantee that you will get the omnibus, so it will not be considered the best deal, even if the price is the lowest, unless amazon.co.uk and fp.co.uk do not have stocks available either.

Underlined:        Variant edition only. Generally, variants copies have a more limited printing, so are rarer to find.

Things to remember:

Look at regular blog for deals at other stores, like whsmith.co.uk, and waterstones.com. All prices are correct at time of update. Prices do not include postage and packaging.

Hi! Welcome to The Marvel Omnibus Guide!

This site will provide you with all the latest information on Marvel Comics’ omnibus editions, including:

  • Creator information:

From writers to inkers, artists to editors, seek out Lee and Ditko’s Amazing Spider-man run, or go with something a bit more contemporary like Ed Brubaker’s Immortal Iron Fist.

  • How much you should expect to pay (and sell):

Forget RRPs. The world of the omnibus is a mad one; one day, you can pay massive prices for that out-of-print (OOP) edition and the next, Amazon have gone crazy and are selling them all off for a quarter of their actual price. Seek out those deals and make sure you’re not ripped off. Please remember, all conversion rates (£ and $) are correct at time.

  • Updated price list:

A frequently-updated list of omnibuses (both previously-released and on pre-order), finding you the best deal on the ‘net!

  • Background information:

What influenced each story? And what’s happening in the character’s world? Is the character popular in this medium, and how fast do they go out-of-print?

  • Release dates:

Plan out your pre-orders, and compare the best prices. Marvel’s pretty notorious with these, but all the latest solicits will be as accurate as they can be!

  • Issue numbers and page counts:

Fill in those missing runs, and get quantity as well as quality; something to consider when spending £75 on one!

  • Follow-up omnibuses:

What to read next. After finishing Bendis and Maleev’s complete Daredevil, go straight to Brubaker and Lark’s run, or learn when the next one’s coming out, and what tie-ins are available.

  • Why it’s important, and why you should read it:

Whether it’s a character-defining run, a massive milestone, or just a script by Frank Miller, learn why each omnibus is special, and why it should grab you.

I’m Philip Bates, a freelance writer, who just loves Marvel. In fact, I’ve loved Marvel since the age of three, influenced by the 1990s Spider-man and ­X-Men television series. My favourite characters and creators change every day, but I’ve always loved John Romita Jr., especially his Spider-man run alongside J. Michael Straczynski. My first omnibus was Daredevil by Bendis and Maleev, but my most sought-after is the first volume of Miller’s run on the same character.

A copy of this post can be found on the ‘About’ section, with further information on why to buy Marvel omnibuses, and a updated price list.
