    Yeah, a couple fill-ins and Luke's run would be the only really uncollected parts of WW v2 if they finish out the "... by WML" collections.

    I'm wildly fascinated about DC's fits and starts in completing some volumes and not others. One would imagine if Flash: Savage Velocity sells well enough, they'll put out the next volume and get dangerously close to having the entire Wally West volume collected in pretty straightforward fashion, WWv2 is getting close (no idea if the Luke run would ever merit a collection - maybe if there is a third WW movie coming out and they need something new for the shelves). On the other side of things, Dixon's run on BoP doesn't look like it'll ever get finished, nor will his run on Robin.

    I'm sure all of these things are mostly sales based, but that's also kind of interesting - Wonder Woman isn't a huge sales draw (she's not bad or anything, but not a top 10 main stay) and DC has shown less than stellar support for Wally West since Infinite Crisis, yet both of them have the right sized collections fan bases to complete full runs on the shelves while more popular characters like Batman and Superman (plus their sidekicks) have huge, huge gaps in their collections from the same time.

    Glad to see a deluxe edition for Omega Men and the Absolute Daytripper relisted.
    I kind of expected an oversized (deluxe or absolute) release of King/Gerads' Mister Miracle, but no luck. Next year, maybe.

    This will happen. DC just want to first milk it dry for what it's worth in lesser formats such as the TPB and standard size HC.

    With Superman year one being magazine size, I don't know if they'd collect it with the rest.

    My guess is that they'll first get the absolute of Master race (which will include Last crusade) out and a new ver of Dark Knight returns/strikes again out first, and then follow up with an omni collecting DKR, DKSA, DKR:LC and DKMR. That'd be 512 pages plus 624. Should be enough.

    It did well both with sales and critics. Master Race's DKR prequel tie in Last crusade was especially well recieved.

    Personally I like Master race more than returns, and I love returns. This may sound shocking but, Superman is awesome in it and it ends on a bang up positive note

    Some interesting tidbits:

    Flash by Waid v7 (142-150), leaving just one more volume to wrap up his run and get to Johns

    WW by Messner-Loebs v1 (63, 64, 67-75)

    Superman/Batman Omnibus: Superman/Batman #1-43, Superman/Batman Annual #1-2, and stories from Superman/Batman: Secret Files #1
    I'm holding out for Flash by Waid Omnibus vol.1&2, I can't double dip if I can help it.

    So Wonder Woman by WML vol.1, implying a vol.2....why not just do an Omni?

    I'll be thinking long and hard about the Superman/Batman Omni.

    Yes, this is very annoying. But it's not only JLA, it's also Flash and Green Lantern HCs with material I bet was originally supposed to be part of Flash Bronze Age Omnibus Vol. 1 and Green Lantern Bronze Age Omnibus Vol. 1.

    I need to pick this up. Here's how dumb I am: I initially decided to pass on this, figuring I would wait for the omnibus w/ v1 + v2 + Black Dossier + Century + Tempest, before remembering that the stuff in the Jubilee edition was ABC/Wildstorm/DC, and the last two Top Shelf. I'll never get my complete omni.

    Don't forget NEMO!

    The jubilee book is nice. I wouldn't mind it if Top shelf put out a deluxe omni akin to it.

    The single issues were canceled as well. The artist fell behind schedule. DC said they will solicit them again at a later date.

    It hasn’t started yet (hence my saying “upcoming” ); the collection was cancelled to be resolicited because the issues themselves have been pushed back. No release date yet, I don’t think.
