    It looks like JL is the only series getting deluxe editions.

    Also, regarding the price, it's not a bad deal, but there were quite a few >400pg Rebirth Deluxe Editions, and those were $34.99, so it's not an amazing price in that regard.

    Yeah I noticed that all main series are HC again but I'm still glad they're doing it even just for one series. I gave up on them doing anything in Deluxe format anymore and puff... that new solic was really surprising.

    Yeah first batch of vol.1 Rebirth Deluxes was kinda thick but later ones i.e SUPERMAN REBIRTH DELUXE EDITION VOL 04 HC, got only 280pgs for 34,99. I guess prices went up a little over time.

    I still think it's a great deal overall. For comparision Promethea vol.2 Deluxe is also 39,99 but for 344pgs.

    All sales stats are based on distributor sales to retailers, i.e. comic book shops. So technically, the answer to your question is yes, but only to shops. Sales to comic shop customers aren't tracked.

    I continue to believe that there must be more sales elsewhere unaccounted for in that figure. 600 copies of a book, even one priced as high as one of these omnis, can't be worth it to the publisher. At any rate, I got volume 6 and it's as well done as volume 5. Another well-restored Golden Age book, though when it comes to content I prefer the action and adventures plots of the early 40s to the whimsy of the later 40s. Still enjoyable though.
    "Why do the trunks not "hold up with the times"? What exactly is the problem with them? And don't tell me "nobody wears them" because nobody dresses in a blue body suit and red cape and boots either.

    It's a superhero costume. It's the original superhero costume. It's not real clothing, it's not bound to the ever-changing fashion trends of real life. It's nothing like real life clothing. How exactly can it become outdated?"

    As I understand it these are North American sales through Diamond. So what‘s missing is

    - the rest of the world
    - any online retailer like Amazon or B&N (also globally)

    So my guess is that the overall number is quite a bit higher, even if it is still a niche product.

    Has anyone read Grant Morrison's run on Green Lantern? I'm thinking of snagging The Green Lantern Vol. 1: Intergalactic Lawman TPB, but I've seen mixed reviews. If it's anything like Geoff Johns' run on Green Lantern, I'm sold.

    It is nothing like Johns' run on GL (which is not a criticism of either run, to be very very clear - I mostly enjoyed Johns and am loving Morrison's so far). The first volume by Morrison is pretty straightforward - Hal is on a mission that takes a number of turns - but it's pretty stripped down; no other emotional spectrum corps, none of the other Earth-based GLs, no entities, no grand legends/prophecies. The art is sublime and it's really a different flavor of story than we've had for GL in quite awhile. I think it's definitely worth a look at some point, but I hate recommending HCs

    It's nothing like GJ's run. As a matter of fact, it has little to do with Morrison's prior work as well. It *is* somewhat weird, but not in a good way. I keep wondering if this run is somehow meant to be funny, but there's no wit or sense of joy of any kind. A real letdown as far as I'm concerned.
    I tried sticking with it out of loyalty, to no avail. Can't say I thought much of the art either, though it does, at least, fit the writing well

    I'm on vol.3 of George Perez's WW omnis, wondering if anyone here has picked up the three John Byrne WW books? Are these standard trim? Trying to decide on grabbing these HC's or waiting for a potential omnibus of the whole run...
