Avengers by Jonathan Hickman Omnibus Vol. 1 Hardcover – July 18, 2017
"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Like most of Marvel's recent collected editions the paper is relatively thin, so that if you hold up a page against light you can see through it, though personally I don't mind thin paper, nor do I lift pages up to read them. When read with the pages flat, seeing through the art doesn't happen.
There's almost no gutter loss, though it's inconsequential anyway as Hickman has veered from 2 page spreads because of how problematic they are in digital formats. I included some pictures with examples of a grid page, 2 single page spreads next to each other, and a 2 page spread variant cover in the back.
Speaking of the covers, they are, unfortunately, not between the issues. However, there are marked page breaks between issues so you're not stranded guessing where one ends and another begins. The covers are collected in the back of the book, packed together with just about every variant for all the issues contained. The originals and most variant covers get a page to themselves, the variants that don't are 3-4 per page. Also there are 4-5 pages of sketches for design concepts by Jerome Opena and Dustin Weaver.
The cover without the jacket off is white with a blue Avengers logo that mimics the front cover in the blue areas, the spine and back are blank white.
Aside from the inside dust jacket there's no special foreword or message.
I'm not super experienced with hardcovers and omnis so I can't say how the binding is, hopefully the pictures can help if that's a big deal to you.
For the meat of this review I've included how all the issues are ordered; this has also been confirmed as the "Hickman approved order." I've triple checked it and can confidently say this is how it's ordered in the book, despite the creator credits in the front compacting so many issues together.
(The Infinity part of "Free Comic Book Day 2013: Infinity 1" is part of Infinity 1, so IDK why that's included in the contents.)
Infinity: Against The Tide 1-2 (A note, while Infinity was going on the first part of this was after Infinity 1, the second after Infinity 3. I can't say where it's best read but it's amazing that it was even included considering it's the only thing in the book not written by Hickman, instead done by Jason Latour.)
Covers and sketches
Shang-Chi: Master Of Kung-Fu (This and Mojoworld are some early, standalone stories Hickman did in his first years at Marvel. Not relevant to this Avengers run but some fun backmatter.)
I tried to capture the scope in some of the pictures with the Watchmen TPB and a regular sized fantasy novel, but it just wasn't happening, trust me when I say it's big, thick, and heavy. If you have any further questions feel free to ask.
