Yeah my local one had a lot of them in the last day! Yup looks like its the 5th alright for next issue. Wiki has changed again with dates for the remaining original line up. The rest of the books (Past the orginal 60) are now classified as listed on amazon but unconfirmed.

Picked up Spiderman from heroes line and can confirm as well that its 10 something euro. Wolverine out this week (according to wiki)

So going back to that Wikipedia article - can anyone please confirm or deny whether the Irish version of "Captain America - Winter Soldier" covers issues 1-7? The UK version definitely covers issues 8-9 & 11-14, but it's also true that the German version covers issues 1-7. The collector in me would love to find an English version of that (even though I can read German!), but I don't want to go on a wild goose chase if one was never actually issued!

I'll check when I get home but I'm quite sure that the book I received did not cover issues 1 through 7.

Our version is the UK version so it covers 8-9 & 11-14 like you said but not 1-7.

Thanks very much for your help! I can stop trawling ebay now!

Makes you wonder where the original Wikipedia information came from...

How is it frustrating? If people are enjoying the books then what's the problem?

I started getting the books recently when I heard they were starting to do the classic stuff. I'm not a big fan (understatement) of the Bendis/Loeb/Millar modern era of Marvel stuff but the lineup for the classic books is fantastic.

And just a small correction, afaik there are 40 classic books so 20 of the 60 new ones are modern stuff.

So what is being delivered at the moment? Number/title wise. Was planning on only getting the first 60, thing is these are getting delivered somewhere else so have no idea what the current title is.

I'm getting the Marvels Mightiest Heroes series (the red books) in the local newsagent and the latest issue was number 20 and featured the Falcon with 70's Captain America stories and his 1980's mini-series.

I'm getting the Ultimate Graphic Novel collection (the black books) via subscription so I think I'm a few issues behind what the newsagent gets. The last books I got were a couple of weeks ago, I got numbers 68 and 69. Issue 69 was numbered 65 in the series and featured the Daredevil story "Shadowland" written by Andy Diggle, it was pretty decent too.

Issue 68 was numbered Classic III which is where things get a bit complicated. The classic stories seem to be pre-1975 stuff and get roman numerals rather than numbers. 68 was a collection of Stan Lee/Steve Ditko Doctor Strange stories, gotta say Ditko's art is really nice.

This is just after getting a rebooting of the initial series.

Did anyone get to complete the collection? I am about 10/12 issues away after scouring ebay the last few months (have spent nearly €200 this year alone ) the ones I need are near the tail end of the series so it'll be well over a year before they come around again.

Inadvertently started the other collections as it was better value to get a few books with the shipping from English sellers.

This collection is the original one and a great jumping on spot for anyone starting off with Marvel or like myself at the time getting back in after years out.

There was also another 60 book collection with the continuation of the numbers, a classic collection using roman numerals and a character one (the red books) all with their own subscriptions. Think the first one took off well then they overloaded us with them.

Subscription is €14.99 per regular issue but think Big Bang were selling for ~€13 iirc. Same gifts as last time.

I still have most my collection in the original plastic but want to get through them soon enough.

Finished the original run when it first came out. I definitely liked the titles they were looking to, and have now, put out out through the extended line but I just couldn't justify the money on 60 more when I had read so few of the original 60 at that stage. Still, I think it's a great collection, especially for anyone of the age of wanting to start looking into comics.

This looks interesting. I would like to dip into Marvel but frequently feel overwhelmed with where to start or go.

This a massive collection of all the classic stories or what's the deal ?

If you're looking for marvel recommendations, just ask! It can feel fairly overwhelming alright but you'll see the same few books mentioned over and over.
