    Granted, it's highly unlikely, but one can dream...
    Agreed, they should do what the epics do, a title for the spine/cover and a number for the back cover

    Thanks. Still don’t understand why DC wouldn’t reprint it in a hardcover for the completists.

    That pre-Great Darkness collection is intriguing. I have a big gap on my shelf in-between the second Superboy and the LoSH HC and The Great Darkness Saga.

    Thank you! I've really been enjoying reading this era so far so I'll pick this up for sure.

    I'm working my way to Morrison's Batman and Final Crisis...any other series that you, or anyone else, recommend from the Infinite Crisis-to-Final Crisis period?

    Did you already decide how you will read Final Crisis in between Morrison's Batman run? I have the FC omnibus but it's massive and I wonder if it's not a bit much to throw it in between the Morrison Batman omnis...

    In the fall, the Batman by Paul Dini omnibus comes out - the first half of that is the 'Tec stories that came out at the same time as Morrison Omni v1. I love those stories - I never really read the second half material (not a Hush fan), but Dini is quite good. Green Lantern by Geoff Johns and GL Corps by Tomasi are really good (Sinestro Corp War is fantastic and you could just read GL Rebirth to get the context for it - you don't need to get all the GL stuff if you didn't want to). Checkmate by Rucka and Secret Six by Simone if you liked their respective Infinite Crisis tie-ins (OMAC and Villains United).

    When you finish JLA by Meltzer, if you like the Legion stuff, you could grab the two follow-ups (Superman and the Legion by Johns and the FC tie-in Legion of 3 Worlds).

    If you have the Batman and FC omnis, what I'd do is read Batman by Morrison v1 up to the end of RIP. There will be a couple FC recap pages, then two more issues. Skip the recap pages and issues, and just move on to the Morrison-penned stuff in the FC omnibus (FC 1-3, Superman Beyond 1-2, Submit, FC 4,5, Batman 682, 683, FC 6,7). The other Final Crisis tie-ins are of varying quality, but none of them really tie in to what Morrison is doing in either Batman or FC. Then you can move on to Batman by Morrison v2.

    So i see that the Morrison JLA omni is coming out in October and amazon has it listed at about 1500 pages.

    By my estimates his run on JLA was around 900 pages. What else could be included? Earth 2 and 1 million, obviously, but that still leaves hundreds of page?

    Thanks, that seems like a sensible approach. Let's hope that the Morrison issues in the omni are easy to find then

    1500 has been the page count since before the solicits had contents. Probably a placeholder that never got updated

    For people who have Wonder Woman Omnibus Vol 3 by George Perez, do you think the upcoming War of the Gods omni is worth it? Looks like 9 of the 25 issues in the new omni are in Vol 3 so quite a bit of double dipping.

    Someone posted elsewhere on these forums awhile ago that you start reading Final Crisis after Batman #681. Which looks to match up with bob.schoonover's more detailed response.

    Thank you so much for all this! I'll save it and refer to it often I'm sure. I've flirted with check out the GL by Johns material before but always seemed a little daunting to pick it all up, bits it's definitely on my maybe list.

    I thought about it also but ultimately decided against it for now. I just finished the 3 Perez WW omnis not long ago and while I loved the first two, it kind of petered-out for me by the third book. Plus I have a big enough want-list already.

    Good to know. Thanks for your thoughts. I think I’ll skip as well. Lack of shelf space plus money being a bit tight at the moment is forcing tough decisions. A lot of omnis I had been considering I’ll probably skip.

    Curious if anyone thinks there will be limited supply and issue with Grell's Green Arrow? IST shows it Tuesday, CGN shows it July 14. With the move from Diamond and the general feeling, does anyone think it will actually appear Tuesday on IST? I was hoping to wait until Friday to order (makes wife happier when I order on paydays) but don't want to miss out. This is probably my most wanted DC until they get smart enough to do a Byrne Superman Omnibus.
