I haven't used the Cometic head gaskets, but the 1-piece oil pan gaskets are awesome, and reusable as long as you don't tear it somehow.

Even though Cometic says in their advertisement yes, I talked to them about their MLS gaskets with aluminum heads on my blower car...the tech said they "can" be reused if they seal, but he would not recommend it. I didn't try.
