    If you were only getting 1 omni, which would you pick?
    ASM 4 without even thinking about it, assuming you like silver/bronze age comics. I read Eternal in singles when it was coming out and about half way through that weekly mish-mash I regretted it but stuck it out until the end. It wasn't bad overall but it was the definition of unnecessary mediocrity at best for me.

    Okay cool, ty. I never usually say no to Batman. But I feel like I'll have at least a couple of years to buy it if I really want. Plus I need to own the end of the Gwen Stacy stuff in A.S.M.

    For my Kindle HD 10, I sideloaded the Google Play Store, so it can download and run any android app through their store. I use CDisplay for cbr files, and DCU/MU run perfectly as well.

    Comixology is Amazon's app, so you can install it without playstore. They just don't want their competitors on there, presumably.

    I read about 1/4 of the issues of Batman Eternal, basically all the ones that had Stephanie Brown in them. (Vote with your wallets, kids!) They were fine, some issues were pretty good. But I didnít really feel like I was missing a great deal.

    The ending was really fun, though!

    Nice haul! I want all three of those myself eventually, especially the new LoEG omni to replace my softcover version. I love those comics. I also need to get the Seven Soldiers before the Final Crisi omni, or so I've read. And JLI justto re-read those since I reallly enjoyed them as a kid.

    I just got done reading the Superman Eradication tpb, so glad I did. The Exile omni really left me wanting to see what happens, not sure why they didn't put those issues into the omni...wouldn't have added much much size and it's a much more natural ending spot. But DC didn't call and ask me my opinion

    So what is everyone's thoughts on Doomsday Clock being released in two separate volumes? Would it be worth it to wait for the inevitable complete collection?

    Is it not being released in one hardcover anymore? I'd rather they just delay the HC for a bit.

    I don't even think Doomsday Clock would be worth getting in Absolute format for ten bucks. But that's probably not the answer you were looking for

    But if one were interested in buying a popular event series (no matter how dumb or terrible), in my opinion it's always better to wait. I feel it's only worth springing for something immediately if there's a chance it'll go OOP and you won't have any other format options.

    In this case, DC will undoubtedly be milking this thing so I say don't rush to buy it. Or at all.

    Well, I'm sure as heck not buying Doomsday Clock in two parts. The whole reason I planned to trade wait the series was to read the whole thing at once. And I'm not buying two separate collections because I'm surly that way. What a silly decision

    Who knows if any of us will even still be collecting comics in 2027, when Doomsday Clock will at last be concluded and we could purchase a collected edition.

    You don't like Gary Frank's art? This may be a first

    Actually... and this is going to sound super nit-picky. I don't always like the way he draws faces.
    He's still great. The characters sometimes do poses for the sake of poses, but there, that's my nit-pick.

    So it's not just me then. There's something about the way he draws teeth and mouths that feels slightly unsettling.
