Thor Omnibus Volume 2 - Cover Revealed

Okay, so this isn't really breaking news; the cover for The Mighty Thor Omnibus Volume 2 has been common knowledge for awhile, ending my previous speculation, but I thought I'd post it here for the sake of completeness. I guess it's a pretty good choice, coming from Thor #147, showing Thor and Loki slugging it out, with Odin fuming in the background. You can just hear him spouting, "You @#%&* kids! Stop that! Can't I get some sleep around here?" 

Anyway, the Amazon price is pretty sweet, if you're inclined to pre-order. As far as a variant cover and artist, I haven't heard anything yet, but this Kirby cover (Heck, practically any Kirby cover) is just fine with me.  

I have a somewhat related question. I own a handful of the Marvel Omnibus editions (and none of the DC Absolute editions, at least so far) and enjoy them, but they're just too heavy to read comfortably unless you're sitting at a large table or desk. They're certainly no good for reading in bed. (Who wants a concrete block sitting on their chest?) So do you buy Omnibus editions? Will you continue to? I pre-ordered this one because the price is very reasonable and getting these same stories in the Marvel Masterworks editions would not be cost-effective. For a long time I was looking for the Fantastic Four Omnibus Volume 2, but figured out quickly that I could get the same books in the Marvel Masterworks editions much cheaper, plus they're easier to handle. 

So... Your thoughts on the Marvel Omnibus (or DC Absolute) editions???
