    Is 'Who is Wonder Woman?' collected anywhere else? I can't find it in anything.

    Blood & Guts I think is part of the Azzarelo and Chiang collected editions, so I'd rather just get those, eventually.

    The Who Is... arc has been released before as a standard hardcover, and as a standard paperback. There was also a new edition of the paperback to tie in with the WW movie. The story isn't bad, but the Dodsons' art is the real selling point. This will be its first appearance in an oversized format.

    Blood and Guts collects the first 2 arcs of the Azzarello/Chiang run, which has had standard sized hardcovers and paperbacks. There's also been an omnibus of the whole run, which in my mind is well worth it.

    I was actually thinking of selling my Capullo/Snyder volume 1. I think the run deserves a better format like Absolute edition.

    Thanks for the updates guys. Going to try to take the summer off from buying new books but this'll give me a few for the winter. Glad to see DC will continue releasing collected editions for the foreseeable future, at least. I hope they start collecting more Superman in omni, though.

    Wow, lots of good stuff coming up! It restores a *little* of my hope in DC's collected editions department!

    That said, with everything they're churning out, you'd think someone would say "Hey! What about all those abandoned lines from the past 5-10 yrs?!" Or is that too much to ask for?

    Good, that's exactly what should be done in these cases.

    I don't know a ton about how royalties work, but does having ones name on the cover have any effect on payouts?

    It shouldn't. Too much incentive not to put names on covers if it's cheaper except for the 10-20 names that sell books regardless of content (Moore, Johns, Byrne, Morrison, Lee, Bendis, etc).

    I'm very glad to hear this. I've been on the fence about getting this omnibus, but at least knowing I can pick up a proper copy helps me decide about upgrading

    Hell yeah, very pleased to hear this. I’ll have to buy a new omnibus I guess to replace my messed up current one, but maybe I’ll just give the current messed up one to my brother since he recently read Morrison’s Action run and enjoyed it. He’s got it all digital so he can just switch to digital for the one page.

    Those are some sweet upcoming releases........I'll definitely take these:

    Deathstroke by Christopher Priest Omnibus

    Superman & The Authority hardcover -----Looking forward to seeing what type of madness Grant Morrison has in store for this.

    The Waking Hours tpb ----This wasn't announced in this thread, as far as I can see, but it's going to be released on the same day as Superman & The Authority (Nov 16). Apparently, it'll consist of the first 12-issues. It's a pretty good Sandman-related series by G Willow Wilson.

    I just recieved my copy of Last Son of Krypton Deluxe. What do I need to know (or read) before tackling this?

    Not much, from what I can remember. It's pretty self-contained.

    If you're interested in reading Johns' Superman from the beginning, the preceding arc "Up, Up, and Away" is readily available in TPB or singles.

    Ugh, deathstroke by priest is going to have so much gutter loss. It's going to be exactly like the Snyder omni. Why even make an omni? What is the run 50 issues? Have two 25 issue deluxe editions for 50 bucks each. Dumb!
