    I guess that's alright. Ill bite my tongue on further Batman reprint comments...

    Just curious, is anyone trading in their old trades for these newer ones? The Shazam by Johns Dlx for example.

    And finally, I know it was discussed a while ago, but is anyone going in on tbat Absolute Swamp Thing? Have you changed your opinion on it at all?

    What sucks is how D C keeps dusting off the same collections every year too release again

    release date
    Did you actually see the new solicitations? They are so pathetic they had to go out and
    create a new label for the Batman Year One and Batman: Dark Knight Returns and
    everything else they need to dust off so much a rag is no longer needed.

    I'm going to take the plunge and buy vol. 1; however I won't be selling my existing standard HC's until I have all (presumably) three of the Absolute's in my hands!

    I just have the TPBs. But you're right, I should hang on to them until I have them all!

    I see that there will be an Absolute Dark Knight reprint coming out and, to me, it makes no sense that it doesn't include The Master Race.
    It includes DKR and DK2, and is effectively a reprint of the old one, as opposed to a "new edition".

    It makes perfect business sense.DC will release it separately in Absolute form and customers will buy it.
    DC,please stop having Bizarro run your collections department.

    Same here. I pass on my old collections to my friend's kid whenever I upgrade. But DC has a leisurely pace on collecting material. I'm 99.9% sure Moore's Swamp Thing run will be completely collected in Absolute, but I'm waiting until it's complete.

    IINM, I believe there is some extended sketch work. Also, it's been OOP for some time now.

    That's my thinking also. A totally new Absolute for DK3.

    They had discussed a follow-up to Master Race at one point - maybe waiting for part 4 for the Absolute?

    Yeah, this one is a pretty safe bet. Its long over due, and honestly its my preference over an Omni in this instance.

    What do you guys think would be the best way for me to collect Morrison’s Invisibles? The deluxe hardcovers are OOP and I’m not going to hunt for them. The omnibus is still in print and they’ve just finished releasing 4 big trades.

    At least Impulse lives on in a trade form unless they cancel that too.

    I'm a little hesitant to recommend omni's that are Doom Patrol sized,I dont think the spines hold up and they are a little awkward. It's still the version I would buy, because I can't help myself and I'd pick the OHC version.

    From reviews, the book seems perfectly fine on a gutter loss and quality bases. So really it's about whether you like big omni's or smaller, but comfortable TPB's.
