I wonder what is driving all these issues happening this last year? I don't recall this being a common thing before.

I suspect that they are just trying to keep up with the demand of putting these collections out. All of the publishers seemed to have increased their output. It's just putting a stress on the editor/quality control as well as the printer. You brought up a good question about whether it is the Publisher or the Printer.


message 4: by Ooh_jim (last edited May 08, 2018 03:47PM) (new)

Ooh_jim | 251 comments Excellent idea for a thread. Could I suggest you include how to differentiate between corrected & original editions. For instance:

Daredevil by Frank Miller & Klaus Janson Omnibus
Original Identification: Black & red cover with the half sized dust jacket (ISBN: 0785123431); Cover to issue 181 on fc (variant) (ISBN: 0785126694)
Problems: glitch in image file for page 546.
Reference: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/marve...
Reprint: Reprinted without error in 2016.
Corrected Identification: Black & red cover with full sized dust jacket (ISBN: 0785195386)

I think it'd also be helpful to point out when there's no distinguishing features between the two editions like you did with the JLI, or if its unknown whether or not there are differences. I know theres no way of telling with Fourth World other than opening the book.


message 5: by Blindzider, Moderator (new)

Blindzider | 3251 comments Mod
Absolutely! If everyone helps to find the info that would be helpful. I added a note about identifying on JLI but that was the only one I knew for sure. I'll copy your example in ASAP also.


message 6: by Relstuart, Mod+ (new)

Relstuart | 2922 comments Mod
Of note, I've seen some readers comment about their Carnage omnibus and state their edition did not have the errors other readers provided pictures of. If that is the case, for this book it sounds like a printer error rather than the publisher sending a file for printing with the errors.

message 15: by Johnny (new)

Johnny | 558 comments Seems like there is some printing error with a few copies of New Teen Titans Omnibus vol 1 (new printing). It is a physical error with pages being printed wrong so it seems to have been a faulty small batch of books being produced while the rest should be fine.

David wrote: "By chance does anyone know if the avengers vs x men was ever corrected? I have a copy but still in plastic"

While researching that one, I didn't see any mention of it being corrected. I'm certain there was never a recall/exchange, but with subsequent printings you just never know if they fixed stuff like that.

That's why I hesitate to put ISBN numbers unless I know for sure it has/does not have the problem.

Hopefully someone that has purchased it recently can help you out.


message 21: by David (new)

David Norville | 69 comments I will open it and let you know but they don't give a specific page. My teen Titans reprint seems fine too. Opened that this morning

Johnny | 558 comments One report of duplicate pages and off center cover on Spider-Girl Complete Collection vol 1: https://www.tapatalk.com/groups/marve...

Other people states they do not have the same issue so it could be a printing error on a small batch. I have not received my copy yet so I can not check.

Update: I have now received my copy and no duplicate pages in that. But yes, the cover is a bit off-kilter. No big deal as it is only obvious when it is standing in a bookshelf and you see the book's spine.

Mine is still sealed so I can’t check but that really sucks. I’m assuming the first print is correct?


message 31: by Darth Bane (new)

Darth Bane | 257 comments Yes the first print is fine. I confirmed that my new (non-DM variant) copy has the issue. That thread also says there another error on page 540, but it looks like two half pages were simply combined into a single page. I don't have any other copies for comparison though.

I can confirm a third error within the SS omnibus reprint. Photos are in the same tapatalk thread you have linked already. This one is an entire page missing, which is more egregious than the swapping of panels. #feelsbadman

Updated with the new info. Half a page missing is a little more serious than the other two errors. As mentioned in the thread, I don't know of Marvel ever doing any type of return/correction for books. Now, I'm a little glad I still have the MMWs.

Great. I've been thinking about no longer collecting these, hoping for an omnibus. These things wouldn't bother me so much if Marvel did some type of exchange program, instead of screwing all the customers who bought them.
