Yeah that kind of puzzled me.

I figured there'd be more Mark Millar. I'm guessing the only story they put in there was the WWII story that he capped off Enemy of the State with (a brilliant story).

You can find a lot of those trades and hardcovers online for real cheap so unless you want a big-ass Wolverine book I really don't see the point of buying all of those.

no Enemy of the State? And including the Miller story?


Oh damn you, Marvel, I may actually have to start reading Wolverine. Again.

If Marvel sold a wooden stand to hold the book I'd maybe consider it.

Otherwise it's a ridiculous purchase.

What a joke! You could probably get the same content for around $20. Who is going to be impressed when they see such a silly book on your shelves?

Aaron's solo Wolverine would have been better than Wolverine and the X-men.


Yeah, I'd got for something like the issue with him in a hole, or maybe even Get Mystique

No one, but when women see you flex after reading that book, your muscles will be toned enough to make their clothes fall off.

I'd be interested in this but I already have all these stories in different hardcovers.

Seems like a great collection of classic Wolverine stories though. Good choices. I'm sure it will look great in this format but I just can't justify spending that much money on stories I already own in editions that are a little easier to read.

I'm just not sure the binding will work for this, unless they make adjustments. I've had smaller Marvel Omnibus's and they push the limits of being pleasant to read. This would require a very loose binding and a big inside margin if it's going to be readable. Maybe they've taken this into account? Anyone own a very large Marvel hardcover?

Yes. They're fine and lay flat.

I have the Simonson Thor which is like... 1300 pages.

Wow really? What about the gutters? How do double page spreads come out?
