Default DC Collected Editions

Didn't really see a thread pertaining to this topic, but I needed somewhere to discuss what a bizarre choice this is for a series of trades centered on Batman's rogues gallery. I mean... her?

Anyway, there's other stuff that seems pretty worthwhile. Paperbacks for Geoff Johns' JSA, Peter David's Aquaman, President Luthor, etc. A few trades to coincide with the Black Lightning premiere. A boxed set for Johns' JL run to come out a bit ahead of the movie. More Rebirth trades. Some Jack Kirby collections too.

I just keep waiting and waiting for a Morrison JLA Omnibus to be announced. I thought for sure they'd bring one out to coincide with the movie.

The trades for Morrison's run have been out for awhile. I wouldn't be surprised if they did an Omnibus at some point.

^ I may get them one day, but I've heard the trade leave out some issues compared to the Deluxes (a couple of which were out of print when I last checked).

Oh, must have read it a little too fast.

This site has volumes 1-4 (Deluxe I believe) for sale, which collects all of Morrison's work, if that's what you were looking for.

https://www.bookdepository.com/searc...arch=Find+book

I buy a bunch of comics from that particular site.

The cover layouts for these Jack Kirby Mister Miracle and The Demon collections make me think there have to be more coming at some point.

Looks like DC is using the Batman Arkham approach on a line of books for The Flash...

Lost Siegel and Shuster Superman Story to Be Published In New Action Comics #1000: 80 Years of Superman Hardcover Book

Special Collection of Superman Stories and Essays is Part of DC’s Star-Studded ACTION COMICS #1000 Celebration

Edited by Paul Levitz with a New Jim Lee Cover and an All-Star Talent Line-up Including Laura Siegel Larson, Jules Feiffer, Gene Luen Yang, Al Plastino, Otto Binder, Curt Swan, Marv Wolfman, John Byrne, Dick Giordano, Grant Morrison, Len Wein, Carmine Infantino and More!


A new hardcover book, ACTION COMICS #1000: 80 YEARS OF SUPERMAN, is being published by DC Entertainment as part of its celebration of the one-thousandth issue of ACTION COMICS—the longest continually published comic book of its kind in history, the series that introduced Superman to the world and the title that launched the superhero genre. The collection features a series of essays and iconic Superman stories edited by former DC Publisher Paul Levitz. Most notably, the book includes a never before published 12-page story from original Superman writer Jerry Siegel with art by the Joe Shuster Studio titled “Too Many Heroes.”

“The found Siegel and Shuster story is a true treasure with a fascinating backstory,” stated Levitz. “Back when DC did regular tours of the New York office, it was common for fans to get original art that would have been otherwise disposed of as a tour souvenir. As a young fan on a tour Marv Wolfman found this Superman story and kept it all these years. It’s incredible to think that Marv not only rescued this unpublished story, he then went on to become one of DC’s most prolific writers, and shared the story with DC to publish as part of this special new collection.”

Levitz continued, “It’s an honor to edit this collection of stories and essays that chronicle key moments and contributors to Superman’s epic 80 year run as one of the most iconic characters in all of pop culture. I’m particularly happy that Laura Siegel Larson’s tribute to her father and his legacy are part of the book.”

The 384-page hardcover book will cost $29.99 and hit store shelves on April 19. Highlights and key Superman stories in this collection include:

*A new cover by legendary artist and DC Publisher Jim Lee
*Text pieces including: an editor’s note by Paul Levitz, a tribute to ACTION COMICS by Laura Siegel Larson (daughter of Superman co-creator Jerry Siegel), an introduction by Jules Feiffer, plus essays by Tom DeHaven (“It’s Superman!”), David Hajdu (“The Ten-Cent Plague”), Larry Tye (“Superman: The High-Flying History of America’s Most Enduring Hero”) and Gene Luen Yang (SUPERMAN, NEW SUPER-MAN and the National Book Award finalist “American Born Chinese”)
*“The Coming of Superman,” from ACTION COMICS #1, written by Jerry Siegel with art by Joe Shuster
*“Revolution in San Monte,” from ACTION COMICS #2, written by Jerry Siegel with art by Joe Shuster
*“The Terrible Toyman!,” from ACTION COMICS #64, written by Don Cameron with art by Ed Dobrotka and George Roussos, featuring the debut of Toyman
*“The Super-Key to Fort Superman,” from ACTION COMICS #241, written by Jerry Coleman with art by Wayne Boring and Stan Kaye, featuring the first appearance of the Fortress of Solitude
*“The Super-Duel in Space,” from ACTION COMICS #242, written by Otto Binder with art by Al Plastino, featuring the debut of Brainiac
*“The Supergirl from Krypton!,” from ACTION COMICS #252, written by Otto Binder with art by Al Plastino, featuring the debut of Supergirl
*“The World’s Greatest Heroine!,” from ACTION COMICS #285, written by Jerry Siegel with art by Jim Mooney
*“The Superman Super-Spectacular!,” from ACTION COMICS #309, written by Edmond Hamilton with art by Curt Swan and George Klein, featuring an appearance by President John F. Kennedy
*“Superman Takes a Wife,” from ACTION COMICS #484, written by Cary Bates with art by Curt Swan and Joe Giella
*“If Superman Didn’t Exist…” from ACTION COMICS #554, written by Marv Wolfman with art by Gil Kane
*“The Game,” a new original story written by Paul Levitz with art by Neal Adams
*“Squatter,” from ACTION COMICS #584, written by John Byrne with art by Byrne and Dick Giordano
*“Ma Kent’s Photo Album,” from ACTION COMICS #655, written by Roger Stern with art by Kerry Gammill and Dennis Janke
*“Secrets in the Night,” from ACTION COMICS #662, written by Roger Stern with art by Bob McLeod
*“A Hero’s Journey,” from ACTION COMICS #800, written by Joe Kelly with art by Pasqual Ferry, Duncan Rouleau, Lee Bermejo and others
*“The Boy Who Stole Superman’s Cape,” from ACTION COMICS #0, written by Grant Morrison with art by Ben Oliver
*“The Mystery of the Freight Train Robberies,” from ACTION COMICS #1, written by Fred Guardineer with art by Guardineer, featuring the debut of Zatara
*“The Origin of the Vigilante,” from ACTION COMICS #42, written by Mort Weisinger with art by Mort Meskin, featuring the debut of the Vigilante
*“The Assassin-Express Contract!,” from ACTION COMICS #419, written by Len Wein with art by Carmine Infantino and Dick Giordano, featuring the debut of the Human Target

ACTION COMICS #1000: 80 YEARS OF SUPERMAN is just part of DC’s Superman celebration, with the seminal ACTION COMICS #1000 periodical issue also released in April and a series of Superman-themed variant covers and even more to come. Check out www.dccomics.com or the DC YouTube channel for the latest news on the ACTION COMICS #1000 celebration.

I hope they're a decent length and not just short 'fillers'.

Batman: The Court of Owls Saga (Essential Edition)
Quote:
The DC Essential Edition series of graphic novels highlights the best standalone stories the medium has to offer featuring comics' greatest characters. These trade paperback editions focus on the easiest entry points DC has in its vast library, with seminal, groundbreaking tales that transcend the printed page. Start with the Essentials.
Curious to know what else might come of this line.

Two more...

The Flash: Starting Line (Essential Edition) and Justice League: The Darkseid War (Essential Edition).

Just going by these three, it seems to be a New 52-only thing. So that's a bit disappointing... though I'm definitely getting that Darkseid War book.

Yeah, from the looks of it, it covers the same amount of stuff as the omnibus and the three trades.

In a way, I'm kind of glad I don't have the budget for omnibus editions and that kind of ****. There's a wait for the paperbacks, but at least I'm not dropping $75-100 on a book only for Marvel or DC to turn around and say "Oh, here's that same stuff for $25-30, and bonus, it's also easier to store."
