A New Hachette Catalog For Marvel, January-April 2016

So the new Hachette Marvel catalogue for collections shipping from January 2016 to April 2016 is out, letting bookstores know what they can order from the comic book publisher. You can read the whole thing above.

But here are a few highlights, aside from the Omnibuses and Omnibus reprints, the Civil War boxset, the Marvel's Captain America Civil War Prelude and the Civil War Illustrated Prose Novel

The Dan Slott Amazing Spider-Man OHCs come in thick and fast, with two in this quarter. Though you may be miffed if you picked up the Spider-Verse OHC and you'll be picking up one of these for four extra issues worth. Captain America White joins them too, matching the previous Loeb/Sale colour volumes.

We also get a Complete Christopher Priest Black Panther Vol 3 TPB – but it misses out the Black & White storyline.

Punisher's appearance in Daredevil, season 2, is driving TPB collections of his Garth Ennis MAX series, with two Complete Collection volumes, collection Born #1-4 and Punisher #1-12 and then Punisher #13-#30

There is also a Punisher Vs. Marvel Universe TPB collecting Punisher Kills The Marvel Universe, Amazing Spider-Man (1963) 161-162, Heroes For Hire (1997) 9, Punisher (2001) 33-37, Punisher War Zone (2012) 1-5, Marvel Universe Vs. Punisher 1-4

The Gaiman/Buckingham Miracleman collection is priced lower that the Moore/Leach/Davis/Austen/Veitch/Totleben volumes…. only $25 for six issues. Hmmm.

The Luke Cage nineties series gets finished off, ahead of the Netflix show. As does the Gambit nineties series too. He's got a film as well.

Thanks to the Ms Marvel HC Vol 2 listing, it looks like she's getting an Annual soon.

While the X-Men Age of Apocalypse Dawn volume  is everything that wasn't in the Omnibus – aside from X-Universe which still gets missed out.I think Scott Lobdell should take it personally.

No Fantastic Four collections though. No more new Fantastic Four to collect and they are leaving the old ones alone now… and the X-Men don't even get their own section in the catalogue index anymore. Aww….

Oh and Masterworks? We have…

The Sub-Mariner Vol. 7 HC Sub-Mariner (1968) 50-60

Daredevil Vol. 10 HC Daredevil (1964) 97-107; Avengers (1963) 111
