I’m not one to break my old loosies out of mylar and mothballs. Too often, I’ve got a backlogged stack of trade paperbacks waiting for my eyes, and it’s too risky to bring a collectible outside with me on errands anyway. So it’s been a long, long time since I read Walter Simonson’s epic, 4-year run on the golden haired Avenger. But when Amazon offered me a copy of the Omnibus: 1,192 pages for $77 bucks and free shipping, I couldn’t say no.

So, was it worth the money? Hit the break!
