About the Author
Born in pre-revolutionary Cuba, David Finch is the only son of Canadian missionaries. After completing a portion of his education in Canada and Venezuela, Finch came to Canada for good and earned a master's degree in post-confederation Canadian history at the University of Calgary. He presently lives in Calgary with his wife and daughter. In his spare time David likes to canoe, cross-country ski and hike in the Canadian Rockies. He builds and restores canoes and has a fine collection of watercraft.
Cho was born in Seoul, Korea, and at the age of 6 he and his parents came to the U.S. He never had any formal training in art, and taught himself to draw and write by reading art books and comics. At the University of Maryland, he created the award winning college strip, University 2, which ran in the campus newspaper. Upon graduating from the University of Maryland with a Bachelor degree in Nursing, he signed with Creators Syndicate Inc.

First of all, I must say that I really enjoy The New Avengers run. Is fun, full of action, character development, great art. You name it!
My reasons for giving it 5 stars come as follow:
* Content: Even when the book is New Avengers, Marvel decided to include also the Avengers Disassemble trade in here. Short story, not particularly out of the charts, but it is a great start for this series. Plus, the art by Finch is just great!
* Quality: If you've seen a Marvel Omnibus before, you don't need to keep reading. I love how this book looks, the binding, paper quality. Perfect craft!
* Price: Over 1200 pages for $70 (plus the quality and beautiful design this book have), is just a great price to pay. I must say that I paid a little less because the discount was bigger when I per-ordered, so maybe I'm not been partial on that one.
These were MY reasons for why the book rocks. I can't expect someone feels the same though.
Regarding the content, this Omnibus collects the equivalent of Avengers Disassemble, New Avengers Vol. 1, New Avengers Vol. 2 and New Avengers Vol. 3. I believe the hardcovers for those books are no longer in production, and if you find them, most likely they'll be super priced.
Also, all the extra material on the hardcovers were ported here. Is great, but I guess I would have liked something new. That's just a minor complaint though.
I give the book a very enthusiastic 4.5 stars!
Artists like David Finch broke out here, and although his art is okay, it is not my typical cup of tea; however, there are so many artists on this book, there is bound to be some you love while some you won't. None of it is bad, but I would've preferred more by the amazing Alex Maleev; his issues in this book art fantastic, and it is great to see him working with Bendis again. The number of artists and styles doesn't cause the book to suffer quite like so many other omnibus collections out there, as there are some similar artistic threads throughout all the issues: some are just going to be preferred over others.
As far as quality of the omnibus itself, this is as good as ever, and uses the thicker, heavier paper before Marvel switched. I don't like it quite as much because this is already so large and unwieldy, but this book will surely hold up over the years because of it.Read more ›
And the collection itself is astounding. Not only does it collect the first half of BMB's run, it includes all the extra issues, placed exactly in perfect reading order. This is truly a steal for the money.
While you can wiki House of M and not miss much, I'd suggest purchasing Civil War as it fits very nicely into this collection.
Come on, Marvel! Bring us vol. 2!
