X-Men by Chris Claremont & Jim Lee Omnibus – Volume 2 880 pages
Fantastic Four by John Byrne Omnibus – Volume 1 – 1084 pages.

Steve Ditko Omnibus Vol. 2 – 384 pages
The Hawkman Omnibus Vol. 1 by Geoff Johns and Rags Morales and Teen Titans Omnibus, Vol. 1 by Geoff and friends. Both 320 pages. Hmm. Not a very Omnibusish page count there.

Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter: The Laughing Corpse Ultimate Collection – 360 pages.
Spider-Man by Mark Millar Ultimate Collection – 304 pages.
Thor by Kieron Gillen Ultimate Collection – 312 pages. That’s a real must…
