Spiderman Omnibus
 
I see that the Spiderman Omnibus is coming out today 4/25. Has anyone ordered a copy and if so have you received it? I am really curious about the book and how big/bulky it is...Any info would be great!

reverie 04-25-07 12:50 PM

I pre-ordered it, but haven't heard a thing since. First time I used that site (I forget where... it's one of the sites brought up here often), so I really don't know what to expect. I actually didn't know it was out now, so I'll just keep my fingers crossed. ;)

It will probably be very big and bulky. I received Daredevil Omnibus yesterday, and it was huge. The Spider-Man Omnibus has over two hundred more pages too.

It's out? Amazon says 9th May. Oh well, I pre-ordered from them months ago so waiting 2 more weeks is no biggie.

Yes it was released, I emailed a Ebay seller who was selling it for $64.99 and he said he had them in stock...He had 999 for sale, how could he have so many? I wonder now if this seller is telling the truth..I have not seen any copies in person yet...

I saw one at my LCS yesterday.

davidh777 04-26-07 08:35 PM

We've previously discussed that Amazon often gets things after LCS

Received mine today, and holy christ is this book enormous. Make sure you don't drop it on any children, as it might crush them.

I hadn't heard about this omnibus before. I looked at that link and it appears it is just a reprint of some original Amazing Spider-man comics. What is the difference between this and Marvel Masterworks then?

It collects all the Lee/Ditko Spidey stories in one massive book. It also includes the original letters pages (but this is a big deal only if you like this kind of things...and I do). If you already have the Masterworks then you probably don't need the Omnibus. For one thing the Masterworks can be read in bed.

Since you can't read this Omnibus in bed do you need a forklift truck to help you hoist it up and read it? IMO this books seems just too big to read easily....Sounds like a great book but damn it sounds too big!

I just checked, and apparently mine shipped on Wednesday! I can't wait to get this (the closest things I've bought collecting the early works were the Essentials). The big selling point here was the 50% off, and the fact it has everything! I've eyed the Masterworks before, but it seems like a big financial undertaking (maybe had I started at the beginning..).

dadaluholla 04-27-07 12:18 PM

I was going to get this originally, but I've now decided to just stick with Essentials.

no kidding. my 4 year old son usually brings in my weekly box from DCBS, but he couldn't even move this week's box. As fryinpan1 said, it's considerably larger than the Daredevil one that just came out.

bishop2knight 04-27-07 01:35 PM

I have this and Absolute Batman coming from DCSB. Should be a hefty box.

MBoyd 05-05-07 10:20 PM

I just opened mine and discovered it was bound upside down. Doesn't affect reading it. I don't know if I will even bother returning it.

What's this DCSB I keep seeing here? I Googled "DCSB comic books" and got nothing of any use.

MBoyd 05-06-07 11:03 AM

It's actually DCBS. And the website is dcbservice.com. A lot of us order comics from there or mailordercomics.com. I have used DCBS for 2 years now. Great discounts!

What are you, twelve? Learn how to search.

zombiezilla 05-06-07 12:48 PM

Nice comeback, Patrick G!
To those not "in-the-know", Patrick was belittled by me in the Adult Forum for posting a thread with this title:

"Where to find the topless An1st0n pics from The 8reakup?"

To which I responded:

"An1st0n? 8reakup? What are you, twelve?"

Apparently, my post here in the Comics Forum stating that I did a search was not good enough for him.


To the REST of you, I say thanks for the information; it was quite helpful.

Do you just not understand why I titled the thread that way?

zombiezilla 05-06-07 01:00 PM

*sigh*
Enlighten me, and then let's try to steer this thread back to the subject at hand, shall we?

Patrick G 05-06-07 01:02 PM

To avoid detection by anyone searching the net for those pics.
