They're collecting Jim Balent's Catwoman run from the 90s. There's also Kirby's Fourth World omni and a collection of John Byrne's DC stuff.
They're finally putting together collections for the Kyle Rayner run. I have most of the trades they do have from that era, but I think they skipped a lot.

That must've been the issue that devoted 11 panels to Gordon brushing his teeth. /sarcasm

It's a prelude to Snyder/Capullo's main event later this year.

God, I despise Snyder as a writer. Everything I've ever read from him has been eye rolling awful. The only mediocre thing he's done was Black Mirror. I read the first few years of his Batman New 52 run and it was consistently garbage. I will never understand its popularity. I gave some of his non-Batman books a shot, and they just do nothing for me. He's as talented as a high school fanfic writer whose teeth are stained from drinking too much Mountain Dew.

I actually can see your point. I liked Court of Owls but didn't love much of Snyder's other arcs. (Must say I loved Dark Mirror but I love Dick's Batman run.) I didn't particularly love Death of the Family, Endgame, Zero Year or the Gordon mech-bat fiasco. My knock on Snyder is that it felt like he tried to turn every arc into some epic graphic novel in waiting. Like a lot of writers, he doesn't grasp the art of subtlety.

The best part of the Snyder run was Capullo's art imho.

I enjoy some of Snyder's stuff but he does seem like the type that loves the smell of his own **** and feels the need to tell everyone how awesome it is.

That's one way to put it. Lol.

I was just wondering who else thinks Earth-23 Superman should get his own ongoing solo comic. I would love to see Earth-23 or Earth-2 Superman get there own solo books. I just find them very interesting and would love to see them on their own.

Both are far from the top of my list of characters I want in an ongoing comic, but good luck.

I really like Rose Wilson. Too much for what is considered normal. Just felt like sharing.

Just read Action Comics. Now that New 52 Superman and Rebirth Superman realities have merged into one

Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
How will it affect the rest of the Superman universe, like Supergirl? Does that mean Supergirl will get all of her pre 52 memories and life back?

Mr. Oz said that the merging of realities will affect those "connected" to Superman and Lois. So, I'm guessing that Kara, Lex, Lana, Daily Planet crew, etc. will have their pre 52 memories and history restored?
