    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).

    Why not get the Deluxes then?

    Because of the bit in brackets. It's been ages since I looked, but the secondary market prices weren't great.

    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/search?searchTerm=jla grant morrison&search=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.

    Odd isn’t the word I would use. I’d say it’s a bad choice. That’s one character that I would say is best forgotten.

    This grabbed me most of all

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

    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."

    Are the Archive's dead? If so that sucks! I only need a couple of volumes to complete my entire Batman and Tec run!
