No more Essentials... but not here

Just a quick note to comment on the news that after several months of speculation, Marvel has now announced that the Essential line is over, citing a belief that the material should now be in colour. It's a pity but, with the disappearance of new volumes since December, unsurprising.

There are various other ongoing reprint lines, most obiously the Epics, so in the long term we'll see where both collectors and this site go. However for now there are still Essential volumes left to cover and I'll be looking at as many of them as I can first.

  1. So they should be cheaper now!

  2. I'm not questioning this, as the writing has been on the wall for some time. But did Marvel announce this somewhere officially?

    1. It came in an interview with one of the VPs; sorry I don't have a link to hand. But it's rare to actually publicise ending something so I'm not surprised the Wikipedia article is relying on this post..

  4. I'm already having a really hard time getting my hands on some of the Essentials I'm missing; I'll be moving on to Epic Collections and Complete Collections when I've exhausted my access to Essentials.
