Picked this up for myself today. I think it's the same digital colouring but it just looks better for some reason. Maybe a different printing process? It certainly looks better than it does in Omnibus #1.

I had a look at it today in my local comic shop. I appreciated the regular size of the pages - something that always annoyed me about the original omnibus editions. That said I own the original release book 1 trade, the fancy pants Book 2 hardcover in recent years and also the original omnibus... I'm still not convinced I need this version. Think I might go buy that 30th Anniversary Book 1 hardcover if I can find it online instead.

Do Darkhorse plan on releasing more volumes like this though?

Keep 'em.

The Essential Comics won't include everything I reckon.

Yeah, I'd be surprised to see them include as much as the Omnibus do. Honestly, though, I'm interested in these so I can have the others in the larger format.

"Essential" implies a selection whereas "Omnibus" implies all (even thought it wasn't lol).

I will guess that the next Aliens Essential Comics will include Genocide, Harvest and Rogue. Maybe Labyrinth instead of Harvest. And if that's not long enough maybe Music of the Spears as well.

Never needed the omnibus editions as I have all of the single issues and multiple editions of the tpb's.

AVP Omnibus Volume 2 is also a favorite of mine.
