I wouldn't mind buying these omnibus' but man, they are sure damn expensive. Always wished I got to complete my original DH omnibus volumes too (missing number 4 & 5).

They're worth it. Ultimately it's cheaper than getting them individually, and that was when you could find the individuals at a reasonable price.

Honestly, I feel like I wasted my money on Volume one. Volume 2 had much better stories and art so I enjoyed that one. And I have reservations about this Volume 3.

They're releasing these in paperback Epic Collections as well. It will take two or 3 volumes to collect each omnibus and it works out to about the same price but you can spread that cost out over a longer period of time. Epic Collections have a tendency to go out of print fast though, so of you do go that route don't wait too long to get them.

Ordered this from my local book store and it should be here before Christmas. I haven't read anything from the late 90's era, to the point I was actually shocked to learn Eduardo Risso drew the Resurrection adaptation as one of his earliest gigs.

If you shop around you can find online stores that sell these omnibus for a lot cheaper. I got volume 1, about a year after release, with the Nelson cover for $75 brand new. Then I got volume 2, also the alternate cover and brand new, for $43 (that's not a typo; it really was about 65% off). I just bought volume 3, brand new alternate cover, two days ago for about $77.


When they release volume 4, that should finish collecting all of the dark horse comics. But being honest, I wish they'd keep going with a volume 5 and collect the alternate versions of these comics too, like the original black and white versions of all of the comics that were eventually colorized, and the Wilks/Billie remastered comics.

Thanks man. May I ask what sites you use?

This one has them for $75 pretty consistently. Plus shipping adds another $5, but it's still one of the better deals I've seen around...

Looks like you can pre-order the first volume of the "epic collection" here for about $24 too.
