    However they have successfully released near complete run of Wally West's Flash series from issue #62 to #225 across 14 books (the Flash by Waid/Morrison & Millar/Johns) as well as a volume at the start of the run (The Flash: Savage Velocity of issues #1-#18) so hopefully that sold well enough to get the rest of the run (#19-#61 plus the post-Johns issues of #226-#247)

    Likewise a large amount of Wonder Woman volume 2 and Batman post-Crisis has almost been completed

    The Compendium format would be a good option to publish complete runs in a few volumes. So far, DC is using them for Vertigo or non-standard superhero fare (eg Robinson's Starman), but there's no reason they couldn't branch out into other titles.

    And if DC wants to keep the Compendium brand for the more serious or mature books, they could use the same format and just come up with a different branding, eg All-Star Sagas. (If anyone from DC is reading this, you can have that for free.)

    From what we have been told Batman & Superman won't get Silver Age volumes until their Golden Age reprints are completed (Batman may have reached this point now or may have one final Golden Age volume still to follow, we won't know until DC posts the next solicits)

    With Wonder Woman I believe there has been restoration issues with the Golden Age material so DC decided to jump ahead to the Silver Age (some of which was already restored for the Wonder Woman: Amazon Princess Archive)
    Bummer, for both that and for the restoration issues with WW.

    Do we have a potential estimate for when we'll finally start getting into SA Supes territory?

    These fantastical stories from the 1950s and 1960s take Wonder Woman from Paradise Island to Man’s World, to the bottom of the ocean, and even to outer space, and they introduce Wonder Girl, Wonder Tot, and more! Collects stories from Wonder Woman #98-123, many reprinted in color for the first time!

    I hope this is a place holder cover image. I really want the SA cover design of the others. Has a name been coined for the silver dust jacket with blue bar dust jacket design?

    Is the Morrison Green Lantern hardcover oversized or standard?

    Agreed, Legends of the Dark Knight, Shadow of the Bat and the 90's Robin for example would all be perfect for a compendium format release rather than the 12-15 issue TPB's we got (LOTDK would be almost 20 books if they did it this way!)

    However if they did they need to sort out the mapping for each series and skip any crossover tie-in issues that appear in other collections (which is what royally screwed up the SOTB trades)

    ^ ^ ^

    Once upon a time the completist in me hated the idea of skipping issues in a collection, even if they were part of a crossover. At this point, I have so much double-dipped material on my shelves, I'd be perfectly fine if they started skipping crossover issues. It would make for a more coherent reading experience, and would help them complete series' much quicker.

    And we wouldn't really be missing out on anything, as all of the big events have already been collected (and reprinted) in multiple volumes.

    Are there any horror related titles being released from DC? I'd really love more 70's titles like Ghost or the Witching hour.

    Monthly, yes, there are a few limited series either in progress or starting soon.

    As far as collected editions, someone else could probably speak to the status of the Bronze Age omni's.

    Legends of the Dark Knight is in dire need of a reprint in Omnibus or Compendium format! The list of series that could or should be reprinted in the compendium format is virtually endless: Azrael, Batgirl, Catwoman, Birds Of Prey ... just take all the abandoned TPB series and give them a compendium release!

    The contents for volume 7 are listed as Action Comics #125-143, Superman #55-65, and World's Finest Comics #37-47, running into summer 1950. If we’re using World’s Finest #70-71 as the dividing line, probably three more volumes, maybe four. (Batman had nine GA volumes, but Superman appeared a year earlier and had more appearances, so figure ten or eleven volumes.)

    Thank you for the reply, it's the same as an action figure of Cain and Abel that era seems to be forgotten.

    Y'all, I think I'm going to cry if we don't get a reprint of "Absolute Ronin".

    The next batch of collections are beginning to trickle through on PRH. Mainly current series, or recent minis/one shots, but here are some books with older material:

    Fables 20th Anniversary Box Set - Paperback. No content listed, but it presumably contains all 22 trades.
    Talon by James Tynion IV - Paperback. Collects Talon #0 to 17
    The Question by Dennis O'Neil Omnibus Vol. 1 - Hardcover. Collects The Question #1-27, The Question Annual #1, Green Arrow Annual #1, and Detective Comics Annual #1.
