I'll buy them as long as there's stuff written by Roy Thomas inside. This year I've really fallen in love with his Conan and Elric stories and I'm trying to get everything he wrote, at least everything from the 60s and 70s.
Come to think of it I'd probably buy omnibuses of the non-Thomas stuff too. At least I'd check them out.
