PiercingMetal Thoughts: While I don’t generally collect any of these Omnibus editions based on how much space they take up on the bookshelf, I might be looking into this one since so many of those original Dark Horse Comics series were so good. I was hardcore in my collecting back when they were first released and have a whole lot of them in my long boxes in the storage unit. What do you readers think about this news? Will you be putting some of your comic book funds aside for this tome come next April? Chime in down below and I will see you next time around. Stay safe out there.
