    In my head I have a Johns Supes omni mapped as collecting Up, Up, and Away, his Action Comics run up to the end of Brainiac plus annuals, the Legion of 3 worlds mini, and his Adventure Comics issues as well. I think that comes to roughly 1200 pages.

    I'm leaving out his last four Action Comics issues as they were part of the New Krypton introductory crossover, and I can't remember how well they read on their own. I'm not including the full crossover, because I'd prefer to leave space for the Legion and Adventure Comics issues, which pick up some threads from the LOSH arc and other Johns stories. Plus, the NK issues would fit better in a hypothetical New Krypton omni.

    I haven't read Busiek's run yet (aside from Up, Up...), but it is somewhere on my ever growing to read list!

    So the Brainiac arc has been replaced by the Bizarro arc and the full Annual #10.
    Makes sense. This collection is more about promoting Richard Donner's involvement, and he co-wrote the Bizarro arc with Johns in addition to Last Son.

    I feel like this was announced/solicited a number of years ago and then disappeared. I could be imagining this, however

    It’s definitely wishful thinking, but I’m hoping to speak it into existence! The recent DC One Million and Zero Hour omnis give me hope.

    I'm waiting for an Armageddon 2001 omnibus, myself (as well as Final Night, Metal, and I wouldn't hate it if they did omnibuses on all the other annual events like Legends of a Dead Earth, Darkness Within, Bloodlines, etc)

    Bloodlines, are there even any characters still active from that event?
    I recall it ran through the Annuals(not sure if it spilled into any monthlies) and was about introducing a host of new heroes/foes. Are any of those active and/or relevant now?
    If not are there any that could be mined for a reboot? All a character needs is a good writer that cares.

    I think Ennis' Hitman was the only real viable character/title that spun out of Bloodlines. Hell, it lasted longer than The Demon series it spun out of

    I think Hitman is about it. And I don't think Bloodlines was necessarily good or popular, but I think if DC wanted to make the annual events and previous crossovers (Final Night, Day of Judgement, the one with Neron) into nice collections (OHC or omni), I think the completionist in many of us would get them sold through. It's fundamentally the same principle as the Rebirth omni or New 52 Villains one.

    Overview video of "Batgirl: The Darkest Reflection" omnibus



    Personally I'm not picking this one up as I wasn't a fan of the run but others might enjoy it

    What did you not like?
    (I haven't read it, but I like Simone, and the art looks good)

    I like Simone's work normally but the NU52 Batgirl run was just so constantly grimdark that I couldn't enjoy it, there never seemed to be any levity and Barbara seemed to verge on Spider-Man levels of having a crappy life that never got better

    Fun times. They're both sitting on my shelf. Fool me once, shame on me. Fool me a dozen times, I must be into oversized reprints of comics.
