Does anyone own a Marvel omnibus? I'm curious to know how well they hold up to multiple readings.

I have the Stan Lee/Steve Ditko Doctor Strange Omnibus. From what I understand most of them are thicker than the one I have (this was a shorter run being collected) but it is a gorgeous, sturdy, well put together book. The Marvel Omnibus collections are the real deal.

And as a ponus, my Strange one has a great original piece of Alex Ross art on the cover, rather than a plagiarized rendition of its titular character cobbled together from other work.

I have loads of them and they vary but all the modern ones have fantastic bindings.

So chatted to my local comic book store today and they informed me the price for this would be around the $AUD200 mark. Out of curiosity does that sound about right for Marvel Omnibus'??? Not that I don't trust my local rather me thinking do I wanna spunk that much money on something that I already own about 90% of already in various formats.

Noted that it's available for pre-order here https://www.bookdepository.com/Aliens-Omnibus-Vol-1-Mark-Verheiden/9781302928155 for $150 (RRP is about $170).

That sounds right for in-store in Aus. It's quite a big book, and I remember the smaller Dark Horse ones were about $60 a pop. Unfortunately that's why I usually buy on the Book Depository rather than brick and mortar.

I hear you mate - I try to buy from my local when I can (especially given the current climate) but yes sometimes buying online does save heaps.
I've taken a better look at the specs on this one and yes it's bloody huge. They did mention the two cover options - if I do get it I'll say the non Greg Land one ;-)
