    ...because if there is demand for Secret Wars I and II omnibi, then they shouldn't have a problem with Captain Britain.
    I would love to see the actual sales on those Secret Wars volumes...baffling.

Secret Wars is popular, I can see why it gets an omnibus. Secret Wars II, which I think is less popular, has never been reprinted before, so I can see that somewhat. The alternative to this collection would be to get the back issues. No other collection for SWII exists.

But these CB issues have been reprinted a few years ago, by Marvel (in 2002 and reprinted in 2005) in the US and Panni in Europe. Any hardcore CB fan would have probably bought those collections years ago, and may not be willing to "double dip" on an omnibus.

Similarly, wasn't the Alpha Flight Classic Vol 2 TPB delayed and eventually canceled because of low sales?

I'm surprised Marvel didn't release this before the Watchmen movie, in an attempt to get sales off of Alan Moore. Or maybe at the beginning of the current CBMI13 ongoing. But with a delay, they might be able to increase their initial orders for the books, and get a better print run.

Just guessing of course.
