Re: Yeah, but what about me?

Really hope they go the Epic path for Conan rather than masterworks.  Or even better, omnibi.  The faster I can get all that collected on my shelf the better.  I'm in no rush as I have most of the Conan comics I want in various formats. To me, the only real added value is state-of-the-art reproduct...

Re: MARVEL MASTERWORKS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR AUGUST 2018

Summertime cannot come fast enough! Very much looking forward to this release, so I’ve got these tales readily on the shelf and I can prune a few more floppies from my collection.

Re: Possible printing error in the new 4th world omnibus?

Update: 12/25/17 - I finished the book last night and that was the only error I noticed. Now that I've finally been able to sign into the (somewhat) new site on my computer, a belated Thank You for not only identifying this error, but also providing the missing page so I could create my own tip-in!

Re: MARVEL MASTERWORKS ANNOUNCEMENT FOR JULY 2018!!!

Great news! While updating my tracking and projection spreadsheets for this release, I had the following footnote tagged to this mapped volume (based on release patterns from a couple of years ago): “Material collected in an Omnibus published in 2011. Scheduled Masterworks ETA 2020 / 2022.” So very ...

Re: Marvel Masterworks 30th Anniversary

Someone should post a photo of the entire 250 volumes. Alas, it’s only volumes 1-246 and 250 for now. I won’t have volumes 247-249 and 251-252 until my US connection returns home for Christmas break in December. (And then I’ll be current for about three days before the next release!) But, as a bonu...
