    Doesn't seem to be a printing issue, as the work has already been reprinted recently. A legal issue is unlikely due to the same reason, though it's still possible.

    I'm gonna guess demand. It's an expensive ($99) item, that isn't going to have high demand. The issues were collected a few years ago. Any CB fan might have already got the collections and may not be willing to double dip. Of course Panni recently printed these collections in Europe as well.

    Then you have the fact that there really is not "future" for the character right now with his series being cancelled. It's not like Marvel can say "hey, you liked the CB omnibus?, then pick up CB's current series". Compare that to the other omnibuses, which have more of a "future".

    Just a guess looking all the factor involved. Collections are often delayed in order to have time to increase their orders.

Well, if it's delayed any longer it's probably going to be cancelled. I ordered the book back in January when it was due out originally in March. Then it got pushed back to April, then May, and every month since.

And I'm one of those CB fans who have the issues already, but I jumped at the chance to have all of them in one large Omnibus. And I didn't pay $99 for it, I paid $59.99
