    How is the binding of the Geoff Johns Flash omnis? I was looking at getting them but based on DC's track record with their omni binding idk if it would be a good buy. Thoughts?

    What's included in the Batman Adventures: Mad Love Deluxe Edition that isn't collected already on the paperback released some years ago? Anything worth the double-dip?

    Thanks so much to Kalitarix for doing this months solicits, I did have to re-arrange them into alphabetic order, but good job!

    I've thrown in last months solicits above as I was sick when they came out and didn't put them up, first post has had some major updating too. Will give it a tweak after November releases are out to make future solicits clearer.

    All future forecast DC HC releases have now been solicited! So there should be a huge pile of future DC HCs to be announced soontm

    Reprints:

    BATMAN: HUSH UNWRAPPED DELUXE EDITION HC (FEB110197) (4th printing) - September 2014
    FABLES DELUXE EDITION VOL. 5 HC (JAN120330) - September 2014
    BATMAN ‘66 VOL. 1 HC (DEC130307) (2nd printing) - September 2014

    Noticed a lot of Helblazer trades being reprinted, might bode well for an oversized release.

    Using just glue on an Omnibus!? How big are these Omni's that they think glue is enough? That seems ridiculous...

    How often have Omnibus come glued only, regardless of publisher?

    Dc's omnibi are pretty often glued, even 1000+ pages behemoths like the Teen Titans omnibus. It isn't that bad when it's a smaller omnibus though, though reading is stuff

    There seems to be some weird disinformation floating around about DC omnibus and Absolute quality the last few pages.

    DC Deluxes are nearly always glued.

    Some of DC's Early omnibus were glued, much like some of Marvels early omnibus were. This includes Silver Age Green Lantern, New Teen Titans vol 1 and I think Flash Volume 1 (volume 2 and 3 are definitely sewn).

    Everything since then has been sewn, does this mean they open as nicely as Marvel omnibus? Not always (some people here would argue hardly ever) no, binding is not the be all and end all of how well a book opens.

    Every single Absolute is sewn and of the utmost quality.

    Looking at the date it was when I was sick, guess that is why I missed it. I will update the future releases tomorrow.

    Has anyone already mentioned the upcoming Dial H deluxe? I'm pretty excited about it!

    Also, according to the solicits the Dark Knight Returns Noir edition will be 11.5 inches high so this Noir edition will be as high as Long Halloween. Niice!

    I can't answer this question but according to the solicits it actually has LESS material than the TPB. Notice the lack of "and other stories" in the OHC's title. Beginning to regret selling the book. Still, DC and their solicits, who knows?

    I've got that HC of Mad Love and other stories. The new one seems step down, except I guess oversized trim. I definitely won't be repurchasing
