Last week, Marvel Comics issues a give-away entitled "Marvel's Greatest Collections" listing ans showcasing many  of Marvel's graphic novels, hardcovers and trade paperbacks. Perfectly in time for Free Comic Book Day.

The title was a play on the traditional headline for the Fantastic Four, "World's Greatest Comic".

However, just as there is no Fantastic Four comic published anymore, there were also no collections listed or spotlighted in the magazine preview. Even though Marvel still publishes. The only exception… was the Fantastic Four Civil War volume in the CivilW ar section.

Even Howard The Duck got a page… including the Howard The Duck Omnibus that Marvel just liquidised to stores for $10 a pop.
