    I hope so, but I'm still skeptical. The events you've mentioned seem much more well-known to me and Final Night feels kind of small in comparison. Crossing my fingers, though.

    Armageddon 2001, isn't that associated with Zero Hour? I thought I saw it on a solicit once involvng ZH, but I could be confusing it with something else.

    The villain of 2001 was an integral part of Zero Hour (Armageddon came first).

    I think Final Crisis and 1M are similarly popular - maybe with a slight edge to 1M because Morrison is more bankable than Karl Kessel. But more importantly, if these 1000+ page event omnibii are good sellers for DC, there are only so many options besides reprinting Infinite Crisis again. Metal and Flashpoint are obvious candidates. Then there's a huge drop down to . . . what's next? Convergence in two omnibii? One of the annual events (Legends of the Dead Earth, Bloodlines)? Day of Judgement? I think Final Night is a very good candidate for third place.

    Events already in omni form (I'm skipping single-character events like No Man's Land):
    Crisis on Infinite Earths (technically a series of deluxe editions, but it's way too much content for an omnibus, so I'm counting it)
    War of the Gods
    Zero Hour
    1,000,000
    Infinite Crisis
    Final Crisis
    Blackest Night
    Future's End: 5 Years Later
    Darkseid War

    -Weekly Series
    52
    Brightest Day
    Batman Eternal
    (Missing Trinity, Countdown, Future's End, Batman and Robin Eternal)

    I also feel the Snyder/Capullo Batman number is low.
    People budgeting differently for Holidays maybe? Folks upset at DCs rapid cancellations so buying other things?

    Could be because we've already had a good chunk of it in loads of other formats. I thought the Lucifer omni might have done a bit better.

    I would absolutely buy a Final Night omni. Mid/late 90s DC is my jam.

    That makes the most sense to me. I suppose it's too much to hope that word on the binding made a dent in the sales.

    Can anyone convince me that the "Batman & Robin" Patrick Gleason omnibus isn't too big?

    Not likely, because I just sold off my beloved New X-Men, due to size, and it's even smaller But damn do I want to own this run in deluxe hardcover. I've only read the first arc but it was brilliant.

    I think Snyder fans may have picked up those awesome box sets.

    Absolute Swamp Thing is easily the best book I’ve ever owned.

    Not saying it’s my favorite comic series, though it’s up there, but the book itself is just gorgeous. The book has to be held and seen in person to be truly appreciated.

    It’s a shame about the production issues, but I commend the design team.

    Wait... what production issues?

    My copy should arrive tomorrow, and I don't need any surprises!

    Do a YouTube search and you’ll see recent reviews discussing the issue. Many copies appear to be fine, but apparently there are some binding issues out there.

    I wouldn't be surprised if that was a factor; it was the reason I didn't purchase the omnibus. I also just don't care for Batman: Zero Year

    The binding wouldn't have been a factor in this case. Sale figures are based on what Diamond sends to retailers, not what readers buy, and the binding issues wouldn't have become known until after the books were sent to retailers. It might have affected re-orders, but that won't be a factor for these figures. The book shipped in the last week of the month, so any re-orders will only show up in November's numbers.
