    Default Create your own DC Compendium

    Image Comics is pretty awesome with their compendiums.

    They just released their Saga compendium which is 1300 pages long.

    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is create a compendium for DC Comics.

    Any character. Any team.

    The only rule is the page count may not exceed 1300 pages.

    What you got?

    I'd make a catalogue and detailed history of all the food showcased in the DCU, like Soder Cola for example.

    Super Snacks! A detailed discourse of DC delicacies.

    Soder Cola was in Hitman!

    I'd make a Vixen compendium in a hearbeat... if only she had 1,300 pages worth of content.
    Blue Marvel - Man of Marvels
    Storm - Goddess of the Elements
    Black Panther - King of Wakanda/King of the Dead
    Vixen - Queen of the Red

    It would most likely be a trade called "The Best of Vixen" or something, which would contain:

    1. The unpublished first issue of her cancelled comic book from 1978

    2. Her team-ups with Superman

    3. Her story arcs in "Justice League" (written by Dwayne McDuffie and others)

    4. The entire "Return of the Lion" story

    5. Her "Birds of Prey" arc where she went undercover in a cult and became brainwashed for a bit

    6. Maybe some "Suicide Squad" issues (if any of those arcs focused on her)

    7. Maybe some "Justice League Detroit" issues that focused on her

    8. Some "Rebirth" content, especially her "Rebirth" one-shot
    Blue Marvel - Man of Marvels
    Storm - Goddess of the Elements
    Black Panther - King of Wakanda/King of the Dead
    Vixen - Queen of the Red

    Oh I like that. But I'll also include all supplemental materials and the relevant Bat family titles, just so I can get the full experience and full timeline.

    Do people actually read the 1300 page books? That seems near impossible from a physical standpoint. Or is it just for the bragging rights to say you have it all in one book?

    I have a few omnibuses, but the big ones (JSA volumes 1-3) are more because, well, I'm unsure DC will actually finish the paperback collections and I love rereading that series, so breaking it out and reading the tome is nice, but you do kind of need a table for them. The binding suffers otherwise. I think the biggest reason to get them, however, is the uncertainty of smaller collections. They started printing The Spectre and Birds of Prey, and Robin but stopped due to sales. Hell, it took them twenty years to reprint Byrne's Superman run.

    I generally prefer the smaller collections I can knock out in an afternoon instead of the omnibus colossus model, but you take what you can get sometimes.

    Not me. They're too expensive and you can't lounge with it.
