    The first volume of the NR era is OOP and pretty expensive after market (say, $65 give or take) and covers the SotE sequel and Mara Jade comic, among other things. It's kind of a hodge podge, rather...

    That's a really thin catalog. Kind of grim, to be honest - DC doesn't have much of either new material (e.g. next volumes of ongoings) or archival material, with no big headline-grabbing omnis or new...

    Yes, just jump into Miller's first run. You don't need to read anything before it if you don't want, but it's hard to overstate how foundational that run is to every good run after.

    Doomsday Clock. It's more formally interesting than fun/good, but it's certainly keeping my attention. After that's done, I'll read ASM v9 (Sins Rising), then move back to one of my bigger projects...

    I'll be getting that one, but I'm really waiting for v6 (which I presume is) Crimson Empire. Now that Dark Empire is officially solicited, I'm basically waiting on three more DH-era Epics from Marvel...

    I don't think it was the worst thing ever (c.f. Bruce Jones on Nightwing), but it's obviously overshadowed by Rucka on 'Tec and Brubaker coming onto Batman right after. It's more "forgotten" than...

    This seems right - JL 23-39, Forever Evil 1-7 - but seems a little spare. Is there anything else to toss in?

    I guess a first big omni followed by a couple smaller ones is somewhat common for DC -...

    I don't love Last Remains being split up into two trades - the Hunted collection worked really well interweaving the stories in release order. Oh, well

    I'll echo that Hunted seems the most likely Spencer story to be the basis for an animated movie or video game. The structure is pretty perfect for either (or both) forms of media.

    I echo the above. I'd seen the reviews but decided to grab the HC anyway - some times people just get something different out of a book than I do - this was it? I've always been a little leery of...

    Excited to see Flash by Waid in there. Not a whole lot else that piques my interest. If anyone else wants to go hunting, PRH also has the various Future State collections up there (nothing surprising...

    Officer Down never got a reprint AFAIK, just the original release from 2001. I thought we'd get a new printing (maybe with Turning Points?) when they did the Rucka New Gotham collections or now...

    Big "eh" from me. I don't enjoy Joker War as a part of the ongoing OR as the "last Batman vs Joker" story. Just too much in the vein of Snyder's "biggest story possible" philosophy but without...

    The only thing that would make sense to me would be to do both Dark Empire and Crimson Empire trilogies together in a single omnibus (one would guess the Crimson Empire trilogy will be NR Epic V6)....

    OMD/OMIT is a mystical time-travel story. There is no writer worth employing at Marvel that cannot use those two features to make almost anything work.
