Marvel Comics Collected Editions November 2012 Solicitations

Marvel Comics has released their November 2012 solicitations. Right off the bat, I was surprised to see The X-Force Omnibus because Marvel has been collecting X-Force as part of their Premiere Classic line. But after further inspection the Omnibus may be the way to go. Only New Mutants (1983) #98-100, X-Force (1991) #1-15, and Spider-Man (1990) #16 have been collected over the course of two MPC’s: Force To Be Reckoned With and Under The Gun. The rest, New Mutants Annual #7, X-Men Annual (1970) #15, X-Factor Annual #6, Cable: Blood & Metal #1-2, New Warriors Annual #1, and X-Force Annual (1992) #1 are presented here in this Omnibus.

Speaking of Marvel Premiere Classics, another month has come and gone and still no new solicit within this line of books. Too bad, really, I have been enjoying them. I do understand that they are expensive for the material collected. But stopping at Volume 106 Hulk: Abominable just seems a bit odd.

The other Omnibus due out, Iron Man By David Michelinie, Bob Layton & John Romita Jr. is one that should have been published back when Iron Man 2 hit the theaters. Any Iron Man fan-boy will tell you that this is when Shellhead took off. David Michelinie and Bob Layton were the right men to take over Iron Man and molded Tony and his alter Ego into the character he his today including his decent into alcoholic hell with Demon In The Bottle.

I’m also pleased to see Marvel Masterworks Atlas Era Jungle Adventures Volume 3. One more book will wrap up this series. I hope it’s on the fast track. I’ve really become a fan of Joe Maneely and his work here is exceptional.

If your are looking for something completely off the wall pick up Space Punisher. It’s presented in the vein of DC’s Elseworlds. How can you go wrong with a four-armed Hulk?

What are you getting?

Cover by ADAM KUBERT
Wolverine and Japan go way back. In the Land of the Rising Sun, he’s taken on the Yakuza and the Hand, overcome personal tragedies, and fought some of his fiercest battles. Now, he’ll have to do all those things — and more — all at once! An offshoot of the Hand has orchestrated a war with the Yakuza, attempting to assume control of all crime in Japan. They’ve already resurrected and recruited two of Wolverine’s oldest and deadliest foes, but the key to their plan lies with the late Silver Samurai’s teenage son — and the Hand has kidnapped his girlfriend to convince him to cooperate. Unfortunately for everyone, his girlfriend is Wolverine’s adopted daughter, Amiko. It’s about to get messy! Collecting WOLVERINE (1988) #300-304.
