    I'm happy with what was included in the Johns V2 GL, so I'll skip this for the very reason you gave.

    Well, the GL omni had about 600 pages of material that's in the Blackest Night Omni, and the Blackest Night Omni is over 1,600 pages. So, while you're right, there's still over 1,000 pages worth of new material there.

    Same. I have the absolute, but I just can pull the trigger on selling it.

    Dark Knight Detective Vol 2 came out this week and the contents are as follows:

    Detective Comics 583-591
    Detective Comics Annual 1

    Who's Who entries:
    Alfred
    Ventriloquist & Scarface
    Ratcatcher
    Poison Ivy

    A few things to note

    1. These Detective comics issues are also contained in "Batman by Norm Breyfogle Vol 1" but the Annual/Who's Who entries are NOT
    2. The Annual is the first of a 3 part story followed in Green Arrow Annual 1 and Question Annual 1 which are NOT included

    9 issues and an annual is a waste of time, IMO.

    Maybe when it's on deep discount.

    This TPB has 280 pages. What did you expect? IMO this is a nice opportunity to get all Batman and Detective Comics issues - in chronological order, complete, and including all the Annuals - between CoIE and Knightfall.

    I wish D C would be more consistent though.
    They have a soft cover Breyfogle trade out this week and than next month have a hard cover book
    with Norm Breyfogle art covering a Detective 608-621 and a few Batman issues.
    I already own the single issues, but because I no longer collect singles,
    will probably buy both and any future releases.

    It seems like they will skip A Death in the Family.

    Yes, they're skipping everything that's still available in other TPB's, like A Death In The Family, A Lonely Place Of Dying, Year Two etc. Makes sense, as nobody wants to buy these a second or third time.

    What's the binding like on the Geoff Johns GL omnis? Looks like it's going to work out cheaper to get them than to wait for the TPBs.

    Omnis are fine. Nice paper, solid binding and opens up decently and the other selling point is the nice glossy covers. I do not like the cheaper black board on the larger omnis. I donít mind them for smaller under 800 pages.

    I bought all three volumes recently and can confirm this.
