ADVENT DAY FIVE: To celebrate advent, I’ll be adding new content to this blog every day in the countdown to Christmas; reviews, opinion pieces, short stories… that sort of thing! So make sure you pop back in between shopping, packing presents and nursing a headache.
Today, a little glimpse at my other blog, Make Mine A Marvel Omnibus, which can be found here:
Until Wednesday 7th December 2011, forbiddenplanet.co.uk is offering May 2012’s Avengers: The Crossing Omnibus at a 40% discount!
In this timeline-juggling 1990s story, Kang the Conqueror sets the Avengers against Force Works to win a prize no one can imagine. It’s packed full of your favourite heroes, including Iron Man, War Machine, Quicksilver, Hercules, the Vision, Scarlet Witch, Crystal and Hawkeye.
Two covers will be available – with an estimated arrival date of 2nd May 2012 – by Patrick Scherberger and Mike Deodato; the latter of which is on said offer until this 7th December. Just go here:
With an RRP of £75, you can get it for just £45. The Scherberger cover is available for £50.25 – I think the Deodato cover will rise to this price when the offer ends.
The 792-page omnibus collects Avengers (1963) #390-395, Avengers: The Crossing, Avengers: Timeslide, Iron Man (1968) #319-325, Force Works #16-22, War Machine (1994) #20-25 and Age Of Innocence: The Rebirth Of Iron Man, as written by Bob Harras, Terry Kavanagh, Ben Raab, Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning.
Amazon.co.uk has the HC on pre-order for £64.11.
