I’ve just spotted Mark Gruenwald’s Squadron Supreme Omnibus for just £29.99.

The HC is part of Forbidden Planet.com’s sale, bringing the Alex Ross cover down to just under £30, a good discount off the £55.99 RRP.

The Beginning

The 456-page book, which was released in October 2010, is even cheaper than its Amazon UK price of £35.83 and Forbidden Planet International’s £37.51. FP.com’s sale price, however, only includes the Ross cover; the other Bob Hall-illustrated cover resides at £38.63. Here’s the blurb:

“Hyperion! Power Princess! Dr. Spectrum! The Whizzer! Nighthawk!

What happens when the greatest heroes of an alternate world institute the Utopia Project, vowing to abolish war and crime, to eliminate poverty and hunger, and to cure death itself! Can they possibly succeed? And when do heroes stop being heroes? Mark Gruenwald explores the ethics of heroism in his best-known story. Guest-starring Captain America and featuring the end of a world at the hands of the Scarlet Centurion!

Collecting Squadron Supreme (1985) #1-12, Captain America (1968) #314 and Squadron Supreme: Death Of A Universe.”
