I hear you Dave, but I think the purpose of these is to collect work that is not collected elsewhere... can't say that for certain though!

While I'm pleased to see the SHE-HULK graphic novel included, I hope that
doesn't preclude an eventual SHE-HULK by John Byrne Omnibus that would
include SENSATIONAL SHE-HULK 1-8, 31-46, 48-50, the graphic novel, the
story from MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS #18, plus a few Shulkie-centric
FANTASTIC FOUR stories (like the #265 backup story and #275).

Please, please, please, please, please ad infinitum!

There's a rumour that the missing ASM. Chapter One and Marvel Team-Up issues suggest a possible future JB/Spider-Man Omnibus to come.

****************************

There's definitely enough material to do a good SPIDER-MAN by John Byrne Omnibus.  It could contain AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 189, 190, 206, Annual 13, Vol. 2 1-18, MARVEL TEAM-UP 53, 54, 59-70, 75, 79, SPECTACULAR SPIDER-MAN 58, and SPIDER-MAN CHAPTER ONE 0-12 plus around 25 covers.  Of course, the Red Sonja issue of MTU probably couldn't be reprinted by Marvel and the Iron Fist-related issues of MTU are scheduled for the second Marvel Universe by John Byrne Omnibus so they might not be included either.

I'll echo Brandon in favor of both SPIDER-MAN and SHE-HULK omnibus volumes from Marvel. Would love to see them.

Matthew:  "It's just three issues of MTU though, isn't it, or am I reading it wrongly?"

Yes, it appears it's just the three issues.  There is a paperback collection of the JB/Claremont material that has it all.  I'm just happy that some of the run is represented here.  Along those same lines, while I am glad the She-Hulk graphic novel is included, I want a full collection of all of JB's run.  The humor is laugh out loud funny in the series.

Maybe for the better that the graphic novel is here as the tone of the series was comedic, while THE SENSATIONAL SHE-HULK graphic novel is played straight.  I am so glad it is included here because it is an excellent book.  It has one of my favorite JB pages in it - I don't want to give it away because it's towards the end, but it is a scene with Reed Richards and Jen.  Amazing stuff!

Issues #63 and 64 of Marvel Team-Up are there because they finish the Iron Fist run and #100 is a standalone back-up story.

Apparently, Dynamite Entertainment has the rights to Red Sonja (or at least did about 10 years ago).  There was a five issue Spider-Man/Red Sonja miniseries that was done as a Marvel/Dynamite crossover.  MARVEL TEAM-UP 79, which features the Claremont/Byrne Spider-Man/Red Sonja story, isn't included in Marvel's JB/Claremont MARVEL TEAM-UP trade paperback but it is included in the trade paperback collection of the Marvel/Dynamite Spider-Man/Red Sonja miniseries.

The Marvel Team-Up TPB is supposed to be a JB/Claremont , but I really wish it had included 53-55.

Agreed.  Hopefully those issues will be in a SPIDER-MAN by John Omnibus in the future.  If not, I expect Marvel will do MARVEL TEAM-UP Epic Collections that would include them.  The first MARVEL TWO IN ONE Epic Collection is scheduled for August so I would expect that a MARVEL TEAM-UP collection would not be too far behind. Of course, it will take several years for the entire series to be collected.

It's interesting that unlike the first FF omnibus, the first JB MU Omnibus does not state that it is volume one. Could it be that a second volume was not intended until after sales exceeded expectations? Speculation on my part but this has to be a good thing.

Q for anyone: Where is the art for this cover from?



I think I see a sneaky "Simonson" signature in there and it reads to my eye like
Simonson pencils inked by someone else. But when I try to imagine that
"someone else" is "John Byrne", I just don't believe it. I don't recognize the
story, but imagine it must be from a JB comic in the collection here, right?

That's from Marvel Two-In-One #43

Byrne/Simonson with different coloring.

When they too the corner box out, they took the “Byrne” out too.

They just don't make covers like that anymore. The Thing
is down, Cap is on the ropes, and whose side is Man-Thing
on?

You can still see the bottom bits of the letters. Just barely.

Wow!

Thanks! It's kind of neat to have these old eyes tricked like that. I never would
have come around to those being JB pencils and Simonson inks if I was left to
figure it out myself.

I;m really excited for this book - I loved the first one and it is great to see some familiar work, and some that I missed!

I just wish Marvel would comission JB to do new cover artwork.

Along those lines, DC has elected one of my Batman commissions to use as a cover.

That TWO-IN-ONE cover has a story behind it, which some of you have heard before.

After I tried to make an X-MEN cover more dynamic than the sketch I'd been sent, Shooter thundered from on high that I must NEVER, EVER change the sketch. Just draw what I was given.

Not long after, I was sent a sketch for that MTIO cover, which was really DULL. But, in no mood to get chewed out again, I drew it exactly as it was.

A few weeks later I visited the Marvel office, and Shooter proudly showed me the inked version -- where Walt had made all the changes I would have made to juice it up. "Simonson really saved your ass!" Shooter declared.

Amazon shows this with a release date of December 18 but it's available now at www.instocktrades.com for $62.50 (50% off) and free shipping.  It's a "Deal of the week" so that price will be good until mid-day Tuesday (or while supplies last).  

I'm looking forward to receiving this one.  Over 50 JB comics, all in one collection!  I still hold out hope for JB Spider-Man and She-Hulk Omnibus collections!  

In non-Marvel related news, I noticed on Amazon that the third JB Wonder Woman hardcover is scheduled for August, which will finish out that run.
