Anyone picked up the Flaash Omnibus yet?

I want to get it,and its only $45 on Amazon.com, but it's still a steep price. I haven't read John's run on the Flash other then with Manapul. Is it really as great as it's being advertised as? Also, just how much content does it include to be worth the $75, or $45 on Amazon?

I'd say it's worth at lest 100$, the Flash series is pretty good. Johns is a great writer.

@Caligula: Really? Wow. I mean, I really like the Flash and I love Johns' work. Have you read this run thats being done for the omnibus?

yes. I already have it in singles (for the most part.) So I wouldn't buy the omnibus. But If you haven't picked it up along the way the run is very much worth the cash.

I'm probably not getting this one, simply because I have the trades. And while I'd love to have the Our Worlds At War issue, I'm not paying $50-$75 for it.

Now when the omnibus collecting Blitz comes out...

but if you haven't got it yet, the Omnibus is a good way to do it in one fell swoop.

Although I'm not buying it either, because I already have it in non omnibus form. But He doesn't have it, and it's worth the cash if you haven't picked the run up already elsewhere.

@Caligula: Oh yeah, DEFINETELY worth it if you don't already have the material in some form. Geoff John's run on the Flash is among my ABSOLUTE favorites, topped only by Umbrella Academy.

I'm seriously tempted to buy it. I don't own any of these issues. My only hesitance is that I prefer paperback trades to hardcover ones.

@The Dark Huntress: @Icarusflies: @Caligula
So it doesn't come out until the 24th on Amazon.com but it's only $48 for me (with tax and free 2 day shipping) so I decided to buy it. If it really is that good, then I'm excited!

looks like I will have to get it too. But I may be waiting a bit for the price to come down

I'm waiting for the second omnibus. I need a Blitz, Ignition and Crossfire to finish my Flash collection.

But yes, it's worth it. It was before Johns went insane. His best work (alongside Infinite Crisis) ever.

I will buy this Omnibus once the price goes down, it's kinda expensive right now...

Also might wanna check out the Hawkman Omnibus once that comes out since I've never read John's run on that character before.

@Caligula: How many issues are in it and what story arc is it?
