Amazon is listing a bunch of these at $15 each - Cap, Iron Man, DD, Ultimates, some classic ones like FF and Wolverine too.

Just a head's up.

Re: The Marvel Omnibus thread

I ordered Bendis Daredevil 2, Brubaker Daredevil 1, Death Of Captain America, and Iron Man.

60 dollars.

Re: The Marvel Omnibus thread

I have never bought an omnibus before (the price and the shipping overseas would kill me) but that changes today!

There's also a bunch of other stuff for $15 - the Old Man Logan HC, the X-Men/Dark Avengers Utopia HC and that Criminal deluxe edition.

GO GO GO

MOST MARVEL HARDCOVERS ARE $15

GO GO GO

I ordered a bunch too but I'm expecting this to be a mistake and the orders canceled. It is giving a list price of $14.99 on most of these books, and that's not the case with any of them.

It is a glitch and it's being fixed, but no word yet on whether or not these prices would be honored. I would be shocked if they are.

That link has a great comment by Rich Johnston about what this ordeal shows - comics are way too expensive and if you can find a way to cut the cost, people will buy more of them. The top 50 bestsellers on Amazon were all or nearly all graphic novels.

Hopefully Marvel takes notice and this helps put an end to their ridiculous price increases.

Unfortunately, we all know how Marvel think - if anything, they'll probably double their prices now. :)

I have not received any e-mail about the price being changed. One of the comics is already being prepared to ship to me.

So I ordered the Fraction Iron Man Omnibus and the first Brubaker Daredevil Omnibus in this. Now I haven't gotten any cancelation email and they honored the old $17.99 Absolute Sandman V1 for me, so I'm hoping for the best.

I know, same here, but until it is shipped and ready to go I'm expecting the orders to be canceled. Not saying it WILL happen, just that it is LIKELY too.

Still, if there is a company in the world that would honor orders like this due to a pricing mistake, it's Amazon. So...fingers crossed.

Yeah, I'm expecting it for the other two Omnibus I ordered (Iron Man/DD) since one doesn't ship until next week and another until in the end of the month. But I'll likely still buy them anyways.

Re: The Marvel Omnibus thread

I still haven't received anything from Amazon - over on Millarworld, some people have had their orders canceled and others have had them be successful.

I know we seemed to be some of the first people to take advantage of this so hopefully we get ours.
