Is "Wolverine by Larry Hama" meant to be Hama/Silvestri Vol. 1, the first post-Silvestri Hama volume, or something else? I only ask because last year we had Wolverine, Vol. 2 and Wolverine, Vol. 3 both on the survey, and it feels like this could be either.
Went ahead and edited my post.  Two more ties forthcoming

Two of the ones that I voted for made it in. Sadly my #1 was only at 59. Really wish it was higher but maybe we'll get it in 2019 or 2020.
Hey hey, I want your cray cray (and a House of M Omnibus, Ghost Rider Masterworks 1 and some Chris Claremont Fantastic Four)

And here I thought that Shadowland was the absolute most wanted.
If it only takes you five minutes to read a comic you're doing it wrong.

#5 Amazing Spider-Man Volume 4





#4 Incredible Hulk by Peter David Volume 1




#3 X-Men Before the Fall





#2 New Mutants Volume 1





#1 Uncanny X-Men Volume 4



And now, those who just missed the list...
  • Spectacular Spider-Man Volume 1
  • Invicible Iron Man by Fraction
  • Fantastic Four by Mark Waid
  • Uncanny X-Men by Kieron Gillen
  • Dazzler
  • Academy X/New Mutants by Defillipis and Weir
  • Silver Surfer by Slott
  • Amazing Spider-Man by Defalco
  • Infinity Crusade
  • Steve Ditko's "Monsters"
  • Spider-Girl
  • Defenders
  • Secret Avengers
  • Vision by King
Sorry I rushed putting this out this year.  I hope all 241 of you that voted find something worthwhile in it.  We had 388 distinct runs voted on.  So the Marvel Omnibus line will hopefully keep on ticking for years to come.

On another note, I am fascinated by lists.  If I can get enough traction, would any of you be interested in voting on your Top 10 Spider-Man villains (to coincide with the movie coming out) for a new poll?  Let me know
