I know that Wikipedia is not the most reliable source but check out the book list now:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Off...vel_Collection

Another 20 or so titles have been added to the current list?

Also I see that "Marvel Origins: The 60s" is out today, has anyone seen that yet?

They're adding 20- 30 books (I imagine it's 30) that make up a different picture when put together, which I guess explains the inclusion of stuff like Agent Venom etc. I imagine it comes down to two things - greed on the part of the reprinters and the fact that Marvel NOW was such a success that the might end up using some of those stories


The Origins one was released this week. It collects the origin stories for the more famous (and ovie friendly) Marvel heroes (Spidey, Cap, Iron Man, Ant-Man etc). The spine also has a small bit of text over the thumbnail which says "Classic 1"

Having a look at the list I'd be interested in

Fantastic Four: The Coming of Galactus
Avengers: Birth of Ultron
Avengers: The Children's Crusade
The Amazing Spider-Man: Spider-Man No More
The Mighty Thor: Ragnarok
The Thanos Imperative

But I don't know about this at all. It was such a heavy original commitment I don't think I can follow up with any additions.

I did pick up the first part of the Marvel's Mightiest Heroes, simply because of the price. From the looks of things they have the right idea with this series; original appearance and a selected/ iconic stort-arc. For people starting to get into the comics from the movies this series is fantastic but it won't be for my wallet

What about you gusy here?
Going to continue with the "classic" additions to the original list and/ or the Marvel's Mightiest Heroes collection?

I havent started the new collection because I don't need another one, but I'll finish out the other one even though...

30 issues = 60 weeks

Its very confusing whats happening to it now?

Had no idea the classic issue was released yesterday?

Also assumed the 2nd issue of Heroes was last week!?

So are the classic issues considered part of the originals now? Is it going to be new spine art on these?

Yeah I read that on the wiki too. I dont think they were ever released in Ireland. Never seen them anywhere, even on ebay listings.

Regarding the now convoluted collection...
I asked in my local Easons (where they have got in every issue to date) about The Marvel Origins issue. They didnt have it and had not heard anything about it, so I just ordered it on ebay.

The next regular issue is marked as Feb 5th!?

Also picked up 2nd issue of Heroes.

I'm really not sure if I can commit to the classics line. Im a bit annoyed its been crowbarred into the regular run as regards release schedule (Technically the Marvel origins issue is Vol 55.)

I suppose as long as I can complete the orginal 60 then I'm happy enough. I bloody know the collector in me will win out in the end though!

Quite annoyed that my local comic shop charged me 14.99 for the Spiderman HC book. Really disappointed that they'd overcharge by a fiver, especially when you consider that I'm in there twice a week picking up books

I was grabbing a few other things and it wasn't till I got home that I realised that I'd paid 14.99 for the Spiderman HC. Really annoyed and going to be going back in during the week and calling them on it. I know that I can get books cheaper on amazon but I like to support my local store but this is one of those things that would put me off using them.

Only thinking about it now and remembered that all the copies of the Spider-Man HC were missing the backing board where the price shown. I assume they tore them off so that people wouldn't realise that they were getting ripped off.

Nope, all LCS got them that way. It's how that issue was supplied to their suppliers from Hachette Partworks. Cardboarded ones seem to only have been sent to Newsagents.

My local Eason's had Marvel Origins The 60s for me to collect. I guess Secret Invasion will be out on 5th february so. Also I noticed the second issue of the other collection and it was €10 (ish, I just checked to see if it was full price, which it was not)
