Really! Omega the Unknown!
Hey, no knock on the cult-fave Bronze Age character, but in a bit of a surprise, Omega the Unknown is getting his own Marvel Masterworks edition this fall.
I found the tidbit on Amazon, though it didn’t include a full description. But here’s what you pretty much need to know: Omega the Unknown was created by Mary Skrenes, Steve Gerber and Jim Mooney and had a 1976-77 series that lasted 10 issues. His story was left hanging and the loose ends were tied up in two issues of The Defenders. He’s popped up from time to time since, but I’d wager that the book will include these 12 issues. (The series has been collected that way in the past.) Beyond that, we’ll have to wait and see.
The cover has not been released but that Gil Kane/Frank Giacoia piece above is mighty snazzy.

The hardcover lists for $75 and is due Nov. 14, 2023.
