    lol yea, same. I don't think it's bad but I guess it's not the kind of design I typically associate with the Absolute format. I wonder if it's for the slipcase or the cover.

    I really like the place holder for vol.2 though. I hope they use it.

    Looking forward to getting the Worlds Finest deluxe edition
    Collecting issues 198 through 214
    I vaguely remember getting issue 214 off the stands.
    Since I stopped buying single issues and switched fully
    To hard and soft collected editions I have found my liken
    For bronze and copper age material growing more and more.

    No, this way creates maximum incoherence in a WW shelf. Perez in omni, WML in tpb, Byrne in HC, gap, Jimenez omni, Rucka in tpb. Maybe they'll publish the Luke run in some sort of mini-sized format

    Oh definitely! The run had such amazing covers and artwork, its a shame they didn't utilize that. To be fair though, the somewhat newer reprints of Moore's run (Books 1-6) use the same kind of artwork of just Swamp Thing with a boring black background.

    I wish I knew the thinking on Omni's like the Grell Green Arrow.
    If a book only has 50 issues and you want to make a massive complete one, ok I can kind of understand that. Especially if it is a "risky" bet, uneven reception or something.

    Here, you have a beloved fan and critic run on the character. As far as 'sure bets' go, a volume 1 is going to sell. Three smaller more manageable Omni's was the way to go. Same situation for Starman Cosmic Omni edition forthcoming.

    I'm confused on the mapping of the Mike Grell Green Arrow omnibus. It's listed as Longbow Hunters 1-3 and GA 1-50. The remaining run is only 30 issues and the Wonder Years mini. A second volume is going to be much smaller.

    The only other option is if they collect the non Grell run after issue 80.
