    Same here! I also really hope they eventually release the earlier Baron and William Messner-Loebs runs of Wally's time as the Flash (Flash 1-61 and Annuals 1-3)

    If we get Flash by Waid v7-8 (or by Waid and Augustyn v1-2) properly done, we'd have Flash 62-225 all in "Flash by XXX" volumes. Sure, there are a couple fill-in issues that wouldn't technically fall within the "by Waid" rubric, but it'd be silly for DC to omit a couple issues from the run. Once that's all out, it'd make some sense to go back and do a "That's where it all started" collection since there's clearly an audience for Wally archival material (and equally clearly, no non-archival Wally material worth reprinting).

    I know nothing of their runs tbh, but absolutely they should be collected!

    The Baron/Messner-Loebs stuff is so trippy compared to Waid/Johns. Wally is a smug womanizer, his powers seemingly come and go at will (an exaggeration, but I think he loses them like three times in those first 60 issues), that thing when he starts growing spikes out of his body, Chunk, the Captain Cold Detective Agency (or whatever the heck it was called), both his crazy mom and his even crazier father... the supporting cast in general is just interesting. Doesn't he hang out a lot with his accountant? And that old vigilante? Waid definitely did some spring cleaning with the cast when he came aboard. Glad he kept Linda around, of course.

    I totally recommend Baron/Messner-Loebs' run, btw. It's trippy, and different, but I enjoyed it. It captures the point of being a young superhero taking over the mantle of a fallen mentor really well. I'm pretty sure Jay was dead at the time, so he really didn't have the support system Waid would later give him with the Flash family. It was just Wally, figuring it all out.

    ^^^^
    This Omni, DC Universe by Jack Kirby Bronze Age, is going to contain material that hasn't been reprinted in some time and wouldn't be still if Kirby's name wasn't on it, yeah? So, opinions on some of this stuff? Original Sandman? OMAC? Losers(was this the title Warren Ellis updated)? ATLAS? Spirit World?

    Diggle updated the Losers. Demon is great, OMAC is a fun read.

    Yes, that's very depressing!

    Looks like DC is abandoning all the plans they may have had with omnibus (and many TPB) releases. Not only did they cancel Hush, Batman Brave And Bold Vol. 3 and JLA Vol. 3, but there are also no announcements regarding further Flash, Green Lantern, Supergirl, Legion Of Super Heroes etc. omnibusses, so I guess this whole thing is coming to a complete and quite abrupt stop.

    But yes, of course we are getting black label, DC Essential, Anniversary, Deluxe and Absolute Editions of Dark Knight Returns and similar stuff. DC's release strategy (if there is any) is just a complete, messy catastrophe

    Golden Age Batman vol.7 Omni is now up at IST
    I just placed my order.

    The finish line is near. Rumor mill is that the GA Batman line only needs 9 total volumes to complete. So if DC does 2 more volumes next year like they've done this year we will be ready for Silver Age Batman Omnis in 2021!!! Superman is a volume behind, volume 6 this summer, if its also going to be 9 volumes(no rumor mill on that that I've heard). WW is 7 volumes, volume 4 comes out later this year.

    I'm also excited to see the GA Batman finally get completed soon in omnibus format! I'm hoping they continuing with the two a year schedule so that we get vol 8 will in Dec and vol 9 in June 2020 so that our first silver age omni can come out in Dec 2020!

    But are the cancelations reflected by sales numbers? I get the Dark Knight returns sells, but enough to warrant a new edition every six months? At this rate, is anyone still buying these?
