    I also recommend Tom Strong. The crossover in Promethea was great, if you've ever read that series.

    Surprised Batman (King) OHC 6 hasn't been solicited yet.

    Batman and The Flash Rebirth Deluxe Editions were the only two Rebirth OHC series to outlive the Rebirth era. That said, it's been so long since there's been an OHC for either of them, and there's so much left of either series to go (about 40 issues each?) I think it's more that likely that there'll just be an eventual Omnibus of King's Batman run instead.

    I wonder how such an Omnibus would deal with the crossovers during King's run. He didn't write any of the Night of The Monster Men crossover, yet his first arc of Batman leads so heavily into it. I imagine that they'd definitely collect all of The Button, even though King only wrote one issue of it and plotted the other. The Price would be skipped entirely I think, due to King not writing any of it. Unless they give the Omnibus a subtitle and just collect the whole series, even the stuff King didn't write, which I'd probably prefer, for completeness' sake.

    No, I think King OHC 6 only has about 16 issues left. OHC 5 went up to #69, and the book ended with 85 (?).

    Did I miss the new DC solicitations? They're usually out before Marvel's.

    I think you're right about this - yes on Monster Men and The Button, no on The Price. But I don't think we'll see the King series in omnibus form for a bit. 2022 should give us NML v2, a Snyder omni that has all his non-Capullo stuff, and as a total shot in the dark, I think we'll get something focused on the Denny O'Neil era soon.

    While I'm thinking about Bat-line omnis, I'd really like to see Robin by Dixon, Nightwing by Seeley, and Cass Batgirl omnis . . .

    Newsarama mentioned in an article yesterday they would be released "very soon", but who knows when that is. On the other hand, DC have been doing a lot of promotion for July books this week, so it would be odd not to cap it off with the full solicits.

But Sunderland’s reach stretches further than even the Swamp Thing can grasp…their plans for destruction will affect not just the swamps he calls home, but the entire planet!
    And Swamp Thing is not the only strange spirit alive in the bayou. When a fifolet—a ghost light, a will o’ the wisp—leads him to strangers who need his help, Swamp Thing must discover what this restless ghost’s true purpose might be…if he can survive long enough to find out.

    Why not do an omnibus for Starman?

    There was an omnibus mooted at one point , but it was cancelled. If memoery serves, a (now former) DC exec said on Twitter an omnibus was unlikely to happen in the future.

    An Omnibus of this material would definitely be more profitable for DC, so they may be opting for the Compendium version for other reasons, eg issues with the scans or files that mean it doesn't look good in an oversized format.

    I'm there for the Deathstroke omni and Starman compendium. But they're both containing wayyy too many issues. Could really stand to lose like 20 issues each. Bricks like these are unwieldy enough already.

    I will be honestly shocked if the Starman Compendium is released as solicited. It's a massive page count for just $60. Then again, I thought the same about Fables, and that was published as solicited, so what do I know.

    DC could have spread this over three volumes, of roughly 30 issues each, and still reasonably charged the same cover price. I suppose after their previous cancellation experiences of the paperback omnibuses, DC wants to get this done in as few volumes as possible.

    I agree as well about the Deathstroke and Justice League Dark omnis. I understand why they want to do these in a single release, but if they made them each a two volume, slip cased set, they'd only increase their buyer base, while still getting all the revenue from a single release. I'd even put up with a small increase in the cover price to cover the additional production costs of a two book set.

    Always wanted to read Starman but 1400 pages is absurd.
    These massive books need to stop. Uncomfortable to read (pretty much unreadable in my eyes) and they will likely fall apart in a few years.
