Best marvel complete/ ultimate Collection trade paperbacks?

Anything outside of what's already available in Omnibus format. I currently have Emma Frost -Karl Bollers, Runaways -Brian Vaughan, Ghost Rider -Daniel Way, and Marvel Zombies -Millar and Kirkman. I realize some of these did get the omnibus treatment eventually, but they hadn't when I originally picked them up. Any suggestions for your favorites would be greatly appreciated!

Have you guys ever read or heard of the Belgian comic book series Blake & Mortimer? It was created by Edgar P. Jacobs who worked with Herge on Tintin.

Need help identifying an old-school 1980s comic

So I'm trying to find/remember a comic book I had as a kid back in the 1980s, but I admittedly don't have a lot of details to share. Not sure if it was from a main publisher or indy, a ongoing or one shot, original IP or tie-in to a tv/movie.

What I do remember is it had a group of humans / aliens (typical mix of 1980s plunky & lucky heroes and heroines, one of the aliens was a bird or ptenodactyl) fighting alien bad guys, and they stumble into a place full of giant gundam-looking mech robots. There's a scene where the heroes push the ignition buttons in sequence, and then the mechs come to life. I can't remember / couldn't tell if the mechs were "sentient" but I think so. It had a cool sci-fi adventure vibe to it, but very late 1970s / early 1980s art style. I know it's a longshot, but if anyone has an idea of what it could be, I'd be super appreciative.

How to Redeem Digital Codes with Marvel Comics

I’ve just gotten into collecting single issue marvel comics, specifically the series Spider Gwen: The Ghost Spider, and I cannot find the codes for the digital versions of the comics I’ve bought. I’ve found a couple sites from 2021 saying Marvel was getting away from using putting stickers over the codes, but the site still asks for a code, and I don’

Currently reading and loving DWJ’s Transformers run, is the rest of the Energon Universe worth checking out?

For context, the Energon Universe is Void Rivals, Transformers, and G. I. Joe. I'm mainly interested in transformers but I want to know if the rest of this universe is worth reading or relevant to Transformers.

JSA recommendations

I've been really enjoying the new JSA run and the 3 mini runs (green lantern, flash and sandman) so I've been wanting to read some older runs of these, any recommendations?

Suggestions for some that got tired of Marvel and DC

Hello to all.
It's simple, I have been reading comics for a while now and love to read, but lately, I haven't read a lot. Years ago, I got tired of all the DC and Marvel comics because I found them repetitive, and sometimes they changed their lore for convenience. I don't like reading comics that are created to never end. Even if it's a comic separated from everything else, if it's from a never-ending universe, I just lose interest. I love reading comics that are ongoing but have an ending planned or that are already finished.

As you can see, I'm not into Marvel and DC. Congratulations to them; there's no hate here. I know they have some arcs that are amazing, but I just can't get into them right now.

My main love is Image. They have many of my favorite comics: TWD, Invincible, Saga, Paper Girls, and others.

Currently, I'm reading the Energon Universe, and I'm loving it so far. But I want to explore more out there, so I'll look into anything that is recommended. I can read any genre, but if you could mention the genre of your recommendations, that would be great.

With nothing more to add, thanks in advance.

Looking for name of a comic book I forgot about

edit: non superhero.

female lead, Had a jean jacket or some striped shirt, had a star on her clothes, either on the jacket or on the shoes(like all star shoes)

very colourful art, she gets a package or somehow gets tangled in some yakuza/triad thing, sorry I don't remember the nationality of the mobsters.

the female lead herself might have also been half or full asian.

it must have came out before 2014 because there was flip phones being used in the plot.

I remember she skates or parkours.

Comic suggestions for a long-time reader

Hey guys, it's been a while since I kind of don't know what to read next and wanted to know if you have any comics that would be an interesting read. I've been reading comics for 8 years and even though I think I read a lot, there is much more that I didn't read. Here is some info to help: My favorites from the Big Two are Batman and Spider-Man I've read most of the classics, but you can suggest them as I certainly didn't read all of them(Watchmen is an example) The books I'm reading now are: Invincible , The Walking Dead, Irredeemable and Daredevil by Miller and Janson I'm more sympathetic with writters like Mark Waid , Jonhatan Hickman and Tom King, and absolutely can't stand Garth Ennis (even though I really like Mark Millar) You can reccomend indies or comics that aren't hero-related, I'm very open-minded with that and want to read some.

There are a lot of villains turned anti-heroes, what are some heroes turned villains?

In Marvel Comics specifically. What heroes have turned bad and stayed bad (or were bad for a long time)? Why are there not more?

How to read comics

So there are a lot of comics and I have a few questions:

How do I go from one story to another? Where do I start if I want to pick up a new "comic" (like a new story of another character or groups)? What are good reads to go back to, and if there is anywhere to find good, starts to a characters backstop? How to know where in the timeline a story is compared to others?

I think these are the most of my questions I will edit or add in the comments if I think of anything.
