Quote:1. New Warriors volume 1. I have the New Warriors omnibus that collected the first 26 issues or so. I want the whole 75 issues (and 4 annuals).
Quote:Yeah, I had to buy the back issues as individual comics. Seemed weird to me. But I guess the first collected volume didn't sell well enough to justify further ones.
Quote:2. Thunderbolts. I think of the original run only issues 1-37 are collected. I want issues 1-75 collected!
Quote:Again, I guess the first volume didn't sell well enough. Please buy 50,000 copies, Reverend.
Quote:3. Spider-Woman volume 1. The first volume was quirky. I would like to have all of it. Not interested in any later Spider-Woman stuff but I would like that original run collected.
Quote:I'm with you. I only care about the early Carmine Infantino issues. Oh, I just googled and saw that Marv Wolfman was the early writer! No wonder these issues were so great. Carmine Infantino and Marv Wolfman! What a combination!
Quote:4. Ghost Rider vol 2 (the Johnny Blaze stuff). Is Gary Friedrich lawsuit against Marvel the reason this stuff never gets collected? I'm assuming Marvel refuses to give him money.
Quote:5. Luke Cage, Hero For Hire/Powerman #1-49. Has this stuff ever been collected?
Quote:Astonishingly, there are two Masterworks volumes! And two Essentials volumes which actually take the story out to Power Man and Iron Fist #57! Deservedly so, of course. My favorite superhero from the 70s.
Quote:6. X-Men 2099. The only X-Men related series I ever really liked.
Quote:7. The Sub-Mariner (Namor's 60's series)
Quote:Holy mackerel! (A particularly apt epithet in this instance.) There are eight Masterworks volumes of the Silver/Bronze Age series!
Quote:8. Namor the Sub-Mariner...(only the Byrne issues really...that book turned to poo once he left)
Quote:No interest in anything Byrne. Can't stand the guy or anything he did except his X-Men art and his Alpha Flight.
His Fantastic Four was pretty great. His Namor not so much (and his art was starting to suffer imo) but a lot of his Namor run had Namorita
Quote:9. The Defenders volume 1 (particularly the Steve Gerber stuff)
And I used to buy them like a sucker. But I don't like black & white. I want the color!
Quote:10. Invaders volume 1
Quote:Nothing exists. Not even an Essentials. I am telling you, there is anti-Roy Thomas malice at Marvel. How could they not collect at least a little of the Invaders? On principle, for its historic significance, there should at least be one Essentialss volume.
Well I still love Roy Thomas.
