PiercingMetal Thoughts: Simply put, I just love the collected editions and for the years that I was not totally active in the hobby, used to look forward to them being released to contain a storyline in a single, easy to store volume. There are a lot of great ones in this list, so I hope that you will be asking your local comic book retailer to get some of them for you. My personal recommendations from this list above are the “Civil War”, “Deadpool”, “Hulk: Planet Hulk” and “Fantastic Four Epic Collection”. Also, with the new “Captain Marvel” and “Avengers: Endgame” film coming our way in 2019, it might be wise to add the Captain Marvel and Thanos stuff to the mix. Have you read any of the series that have been collected into these volumes? If so chime in down below since I’d love to hear from you.
