A few thoughts:
— Along with the solicitations, Marvel released this detailed graphic listing all the stories that will be included:
— As you see, there will be a direct-market variant cover featuring Jack Kirby’s cover to Fantastic Four Annual #2.
— The solicitations noted that the volume would be released in June. The graphic above, however, says the omnibus is due Oct. 11, 2022. Amazon also lists the Oct. 11 date.
— I love that Marvel is doing this, though I am 100 percent certain there will be the anti-Stan folks who will be aghast. Such is life.
