    I'm guessing they'll wait for a bit releasing it. Perhaps a bit closer to the upcoming Batman which is in the making.

    But yeah, I was really looking forward to it. I'm hoping now they'll include Last Crusade when it's -eventually- out, as well as releasing Master Race as an absolute as well. Making up for the delay

    They should just release a Frank Miller Batman Omni.

    I picked up a sealed copy of Green Lantern Omnibus Vol. 1 from 2010 for $34 on eBay. I just read about this version being glued vs. the sewed binding used when this was reprinted as the Silver Age GL. Since it's such a big book should I go ahead and flip this and opt for the Silver Age version or just take my chances at that price? Thanks!

    I bought Absolute Year One last December so I was really looking for this reprint.

    I am not interested in the other editions so this is a really disappointing news.

    I sold off my tightly glued Green Lantern Omnibus Vol. 1 from 2010 as well as Vol. 2 in anticipation of the new Silver Age Omnibus editions. The latter have more contents and cover a longer period. If you can sell it off without a loss, I would. They are much more inferior to the newer editions, quality and content wise.

    Thanks, Raffi! Back to the bay it goes.

    Which begs the question why Brynes WW isnt in an Omnibus format. As there plans for this? Or is it just a matter of popularity/profit?

    The 3rd (and final) standard hardcover of Byrne's run comes out this summer. I have no idea how well they've sold, but I suppose they could re-release it in an omni at some point...

    Although I'd rather finally see collections of Messner-Loebs run.

    I just don't know if its worth it to continue collecting them then.

    And I agree. On M-L...they had that fat TPB a while ago, but it wasnt every issue irrc. I would also be in favor for a proper War of the Gods saga collection.

    Wonder Woman had some of the best covers on the stands back than from Brian Bolland to Adam Hughes
    D C has been very Wonder Woman friendly when it comes to Omnibus and some other collected editions the last decade.

    I thought it was pretty messed up that DC titled it WW By Mike Deodato, considering Deodato only came aboard for the last 10-12 issues of Messner-Loebs' 3+ yr run. But he's the more marketable name so whatever...

    I would definitely buy an Absolute Bolland art book (and I'll be picking up the Hughes one as well!).

    That's right! I totally forgot about that. Thank you for the correction. Its the exact same case with the new Grayson by Tom King Omnibus.

    Judging by the Amazon new release date (2080), looks like The Art of Bruce Timm has also ben canceled.

    What would be, in your opinion, the best option to get Neal Adams' work on Batman? The old standard trim hardcovers, the paperbacks or the omnibus?
    I was waiting to see a consecutive collected edition without non-Adams gaps, but I might as well just jump into what's been published as of now, I'm pretty sure my local comic shop has all the above options available.
