We all have trade paperback (TPB) collections we'd like to see. Here's one of mine:

Proposed Title:Thor 2099: The Fall of the Hammer.
Collecting 7 Issues:
  • Spider-Man 2099 #15-16
  • Ravage 2099 #15
  • X-Men 2099 #5
  • Doom 2099 #14
  • Punisher 2099 #13
  • 2099 Unlimited #4
Covers: (click to enlarge)
TPB Cover: Spider-Man 2099 #15

I don't know about anyone else, but the little bit of the 2099 line I got to read, I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, at the time (1993) there was a lot of other great comic stuff going on, and my wallet would only stretch so far. One thing I had really looked forward to though was checking out the introduction of Thor 2099, in The Fall of the Hammer storyline. I've only ever found one issue of this story though (X-Men 2099 #5) and I only found that a week-and-a-half ago. I realize there isn't a high demand for 2099 anymore, but I'd love to see this story in TPB, just to read it and see what it was like. (BTW, the five headshot covers make one giant image. You can kind of tell it here, but you can see it fully connected in my blog, Multi-Cover Images, if you would like [5/28/14 update: page damaged by site redesign- will be fixed when I can get into it again].)

For the cover, I'd go with Spider-Man 2099 #15, because it's the only cover with a prominent shot of Thor 2099, even if it is in silhouette. The only other cover to show him is Spider-Man 2099 #16, and he is way upstaged by Spidey's giant noggin on the cover.

10/14/12 Update: I added Spider-Man 2099 #15 awhile back, thanks to daarkanjel. I just today looked at the story arc page again, and noticed that I had forgotten 2099 Unlimited #4, which is apparently an epilogue to the story. So that beefs the TPB up to a nice 7 issues.

Would you buy it? Let me know in the comments, and thanks for reading.

I believe I have those issues as well, including posters and pin them on my bedroom wall.

@william knowles: Sheesh, lucky you.  X-Men 2099 #5 is still the only issue of this I have found.  I'll get to read it one of these days. :)

if your interested, i can set you up w/ digital copies of the storyline, i believe i have most of the 2099 volumes on disc, also, spider-man 2099 #15 is a lead in to the story, you would want that one if you're trying to put together a collection.

@daarkanjel: Oh, cool!  Thanks, I'll add the lead-in.  How do you have them on disc?  Did Marvel do digital copies, or did you scan them yourself?  I didn't know that was available. :)

I would like to see the all of the 2099 series released in trade paperback, they were all awesome until the end when they all merged into 2099 world of tomorrow, there is no need to reprint that comic.

Punisher #10-12 all tie quite heavily into Fall of the Hammer as well.

Thanks for the input, folks! I'll have to add those issues when I *finally* have a computer that works well with CV (still working from library and friends' computers at the moment).
