What am I talking about? Why, the release of the Complete Ben Reilly epic Book 6, concluding the Clone Saga collections! Better yet, SM 75 is reprinted with the additional 14 pages drawn by John Romita Jr! Remember the time, way back when, when Marvel acknowledged the Clone Saga akin to the Black Plague? NOW, the entire saga is collected in trades! I am beside myself in shock this has become a reality. Below is the full list of contents and reading order for each book, and a list of issues not reprinted. The Green Goblin series is reprinted in A Lighter Shade of Green; they should each be read when indicated in the timeline of each Complete Epic Book, as well as those issues not reprinted in the books.
