    They did it with the TP spines before. Rebirth ended, so new design.
    Same bullshit decision as for the new 52/DC You era.

    Have the numbers on this gone up? I seem to recall the GA Bats&Supes selling 6-700 units for awhile(vol.3-5?). If my memory is right do we attribute that to folks who had the Archives getting on board after holding out now that these Omnis are collecting previously material previously not reprinted?
    We are so close to the end of Batman Golden Age Omni line now, volume 8 has been solicited! One more to go!

    That Robin Omni has my interest.

    No Batman Brave And Bold Bronze Age Omnibus #3, no JLA Bronze Age Omnibus #3, no other Bronze Age Omnibus (except for the Robin one) - very disappointing

    The flood of Bronze Age HCs shows that DC wants us to buy these instead. Later, 5 or 10 years in the future, we'll then see Bronze Age Omnibusses to buy this all again - cynical marketing ...

    Yeah I was unhappy they are not in there, if they bail on those two completely will be very disappointing. Good way to screw over fans I want the Robin omnibus, but feel should not buy any of them as they cannot be trusted to complete it.

    WW by Messner-Loebs v1 (63, 64, 67-75)
    I never thought I'd see the day...?!?

    His run isn't the most highly regarded, but I loved it! The contents is probably off though; WML wrote #66, and the 1992 WW Special should be included, as it's part 1 on the story that finished in #63.

    It includes the special and Annual 3. I forgot to list the rest of the contents because I was working out in my head if I thought they'd do 76-89 in a v2 to run up to the Deodato collection or do WML in three volumes and supplant the Deodato one. I didn't get anywhere with that . . .

    Between this and the Flash: Savage Velocity collection, they're really making an effort to get some books almost completely collected (WW will take a lot more work between Byrne and Jimenez). It's really nice, even if I'm sure there are going to be these really stupid gaps that prevent me from saying I have a complete run on the shelf . . .

    With the Master Race, is there enough material for a Dark Knight omni?

    Is Miller still intending to do another chapter in the story? I assume they'll wait to omni it until he's done. That said, if they included Superman: Year One, DKR, DKSA, DK:MR (and related material) you can get to a pretty hefty volume even without ASBAR.

    My issue is, if we are counting the Boy Wonder, 1 great story, 1 mediocre story and 2 bad stories isn't a killer line-up.

    Was Master Race not well received? (I havenít read it yet)

    With the recent Jimenez omnibus, and Byrne's third and final hardcover on the way, I believe that only leaves Eric Luke's run. If DC moves forward on that, we should have WW v. 2 collected in full if I'm not mistaken...? (give or take a few fill in issues).
