So we ran a piece on Dan Abnett and Andy Lanning getting their Guardians Of The Galaxy run collected in complete editions.
But they aren’t the only big books on the way from Marvel.
First there’s since from the rather thick paperback Epic Collection line… but no, not Groo The Wanderer. More’s the pity.

Amazing Spider-Man Epic Collection: Ghosts of the Past (259-272 , Annual 18-19; Web of Spider-Man (1985) 1, 6)
Then it’s time to start thinking Guardians Of The Galaxy movie

And Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross’ Marvels gets a Marvels: The Platinum Edition Slipcase which appears to be the new name for their massive Adamantium format,
Marvel’s super-sized “Adamantium Collection”-style format continues, shining a well-deserved spotlight on a true Marvel classic! Within the Marvel Universe, heroes soar high in the skies, ready to battle the villains who threaten their world. Yet living in the shadow of these extraordinary icons are ordinary men and women, who view the “Marvels” with a mixture of fear, disbelief, envy and admiration. Among them is Phil Sheldon, a New York City photojournalist who dedicates his career to covering the exploits of the Marvels and their effect on humankind. A richly painted historical overview of the entire Marvel Universe, Marvels spans the 1939 debut of the Human Torch to the fearsome coming of the world-devouring Galactus, culminating in the shocking death of Gwen Stacy, Spider-Man’s first love. Plus: an extensive and gorgeous Alex Ross art gallery!
