OmnibusWatch: The Uncanny Omar has been running more YouTube scoops directly from Marvel VP – Sales, David Gabriel. And here's the details from some of his recent announcements of Marvel Omnibus volumes planned for December 2021, just in time to make some very big Christmas presents for some lucky folk. And there are three big mutant Omnibus volumes, a reissue of Mutant Massacre Omnibus, currently out of print and going for many multiples of cover price on Amazon. Then there is a second Omnibus volume for New Mutants. With the suggestion that the third volume might take in the rest of the original run, including Rob Liefeld's reinvention – and maybe X-Force too. And then a second volume for Excalibur, including Alan Davis' second run on the title, writing and drawing the series with Joe Madureira guest-starring. And the Chip Zdarsky and Joe Quinones run on Howard The Duck in one big volume too. Here are the details as shared on YouTube.
