Title: Buying this Omni
Post by: Perry on July 07, 2017, 10:00:20 AM
I don't know when or if it will be here, on Amazon, or if InStock Trades will be getting my money, but THIS (https://www.amazon.com/Legion-Super-Heroes-Silver-Omnibus/dp/1401271022) will be mine. Oh, yes, it will be.
 ;D

Sweet!

I just got THIS (https://www.amazon.com/Superboy-Legion-Super-Heroes-Vol-1/dp/1401272916/ref=pd_bxgy_14_img_2?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=1401272916&pd_rd_r=J71B43SSBNM5MKZNTAVT&pd_rd_w=ygjv4&pd_rd_wg=KLJdv&psc=1&refRID=J71B43SSBNM5MKZNTAVT) in the mail last week.

Sweet man.  8)

Just checked on that and it starts at issue #234 and runs to #240. What an odd set.  8) I can find no logic in why those seven issues were the ones collected. Not that I am complaining, any collection of LoSH is grand in my eyes  ;D, but just curious if you know why those issues were selected as the "vol 1".
Does it say in the book or do you know of why they decided to start here at #234?

It is great that they included the elusive All New Collectors Edition C-55 
 
SCORE !!!

 ;D ;D ;D

That one issue was one of my favorite reads when I was younger.
 :)

Plus, unlike all the other Collectors Editions, that book actually took place between issues and was part of the order of reading not just a reprint or some strange one shot. Hey!!! Maybe that is why they did start that vol there? Just to get that in the order?

The description says...

"Continuing directly from the LEGION OF SUPER-HEROES ARCHIVES..."

So I guess it follows that? Not sure why it's a Vol 1.  I have an aged copy of C-55 that is falling apart which is what drew me to this HC.  Wanted to be able to look at it without pages falling out.  >:(

I also had that as a kid and loved looking at the giant pages.  Just a lot of fun.

Oh man, yeah, that sucks. And for such a great issue too  :(
Like you said, it was so nice and big!

That reminds me, I need to order me another copy of Paul Jenkins Inhumans trade. The pages are falling out of that as well and that pisses me off. That is one I need on my shelf, but hey, maybe there is a HC of that now.?.?.?
