Daredevil, Omnibus 1 (Brubaker)
Daredevil, Omnibus 2 (Bendis)
Captain America, Omnibus 2
Wolverine, Omnibus Vol 1
X-Men, Omnibus Vol 1
Fantastic Four, Omnibus Vol 1
Invincible Iron Man, Omnibus Vol 1
Tomb of Dracula, Omnibus Vol (Variant Cover)
Golden Age Marvel Comics, Omnibus Vol 1
Ultimates, Omnibus Vol 1
Incredible Hulk, Omnibus Vol 1
Secret Wars Omnibus
Secret Wars II Omnibus
Howard the Duck Omnibus
Old Man Logan
Dark X-Men/Dark Avengers: Utopia
War of Kings (Paperback)

I also noticed that there were a few Dynamite titles listed:

Lone Ranger, Vol 4 HC
Zorro, Vol 2 HC

Good luck!

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

These are comic books? And is $14.99 for all of them?

These are collected editions of comics, with each one being $14.99. Many of the omnibuses are typically $50 - $100 or so.

One of the best deals I've ever seen on Amazon. Thanks OP! Picked up Wolverine, both Secret Wars and Death of Captain America - of course only one of those was still in stock so we'll see if these get honored.

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

I hope so too. I'm currently on the hook for both Daredevils, The X-Men, Wolverine, Old Man Logan, Tomb of Dracula and Deadpool: Suicide Kings. I also pre-ordered Deadpool Team-Up, Prelude to Deadpool Corps, Thor, Lone Ranger Vol 4 and Zorro Vol 2. I just couldn't pass them up at these prices.

Thanks for the heads up! I went with Secret Wars and Tomb of Dracula. Here's hoping I get them both at these great prices.

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

Picked up a few for the collection - hope Amazon comes through and delivers! See the Comic Book Bargin Thread for more titles - Bloom County, Madman, Invincible, Walking Dead, Powers, etc, though most of those are not as great a bargin as these (altho I highly recommend the Invincible Library). Thanks OP!

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

Thanks for the heads-up, I ordered Incredible Hulk, Secret Wars I & II, Wolverine, and Tomb of Dracula Omnibus.

Hopefully this is a legit sale and not a pricing error.

Absolutely one of the best comic book deals I ever saw PERIOD!

Edit: People on the slickdeals forums are worried that this is a massive pricing error and Amazon will most likely cancel the orders for these books.

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

Many of them dropped to $8.24 if anyone wants to take a chance on re-ordering.

Thanks, just ordered a few at the 8.24 mark (any suggestions for a newb? I got X-Men, Wolverine, and Fantastic 4.)

Saw this on Bleeding Cool and jumped on the Howard the Duck Omnibus. Still scouring Amazon to see if anything else interests me.

starman 9000 - I'd say that's a good place to get started. You might want to consider Invincible Iron Man (Fraction) Vol 1 and Death of Captain America, as both are currently sitting at $8.24.

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

Thanks, yeah, I thought about those two, didn't think it would be the best to start at the end with Captain. I just added the Ultimates too. I think if Secret Wars or Civil War drops I'll get those too. Daredevil is in my cart as well, but it looks like it's two separate versions.

Also keeping an eye on Invicible.

Oh, how I wish it were Monday so my prime would get these things in the mail ASAP.

Even if you have Prime, it doesn't look like they will ship right away. Most of them say that they will ship in 1 to 2 weeks.

Ah yeah, I just noticed that. Oh well, it'd be nice to get them, but I guess it probably won't happen.

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

I put in an order of 3 don't think I'll get them but just in case. They don't have the normal MSRP right on these so it looks like a computer error of a repricing. Would be great to get them, but kept my order small hoping it might slip through.

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

More of the $14.99 books are dropping to $8.24. What's the general consensus on canceling an order and then reordering at the lower price? Good idea? Bad idea? Or will it not matter since none of these will go through anyway?

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

I'm thinking the latter. But I'm holding off on any cancelling/re-ordering. The $14.99 prices are still steals, so I'll be happy if I get any at that price. Although I may request a price adjustment for grins, after I recieve them.

I hope no one is calling or writing Amazon asking them about these prices.

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

I'd bet because this was posted at Slickdeals, all orders will be canceled. There is a small chance it could have slipped under the radar, but Slickdeals tends to ruin everything.

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

I had ordered Wolverine at $14.99. Went ahead and ordered X-Men now. I think i'll keep the $14.99 order in case there's a better chance of it going through (who knows)

Re: Huge Marvel Omnibus Deal - Amazon $14.99

i ordered the ultimates one at $8.74. cool find. while i'm not into comics anymore, this will be a cool way to read some of the good stories.

i don't see why you think they will be canceled. it's not like there is a price "mistake' on 1 or 2 of these. there are a bunch of them for cheap. not only that, but the prices dropped overnight! to me that indicates they are just unloading stock and we all will get smoking deals on these.

What is everyone basing this on? If they cancel 8.24, they will cancel 14.99 orders. Both of them seem to mispriced. I would cancel/reorder. The only benefit I can see is that if there are a bunch of orders, some may slip through before Amazon catches the misprice. Therefor earlier orders might have a better chance of getting fulfilled. But with a 2 week wait on these, I doubt that will make a difference.

I've never known Amazon to cancel orders based on price. I have had them cancel orders they never got in.
