Does anybody know if these will be collected in a TPB or hardcover?

There are no plans to do so.

And even if there were, the "wait for the trade" mentality would be bad for the series as we're dependant on sales of the monthly book to maintain a long and healthy run!

Considering what was in #3, here's what is going to be covered:
Amazing Spider-Man #147 up
Iron Man #66 up
Uncanny X-Men #151 up

Maybe it would just be easier in the future to say what titles are covered and not worry about the numbers.

Previews and the like want numbers, even if they then prove to be somewhat off the actual mark.

So Previews wants the information even if it's wrong? That does explain a few things.

That's my understanding. It's not meant as a slight on them, I hasten to add.

Did Joe Robertson appear in Amazing 156? Martha and Randy are listed, but not Joe. He's on the cover, but he is not referenced in the entry at all.

Since I have this issue, I checked, and yes he is in it.

I also found another mistake in the same issue. In the entry for X-Men # 157, Lord Samedar is not listed in the character section although he is mentioned in the text.

I'll double check, but it does sound like errors on our part. More for the errata list - we do intend to include corrections in an upcoming issue, it's just finding the time to compile it that's the problem.
