They're effectively the same type of book.
    Aren't Absolutes supposed to be a larger page than an Omnibus?

    I think Absolutes are 9x12, so yes.

    OH okay. You mean the deluxe editions not the Absolutes. My bad.

    JLA Morrison omnibus is due next week. Uhg, they really botched the collected issues in this book, in my opinion. I'll probably pick it up because I doubt we'll ever get a straight JLA deluxe/omnibus collection. Sigh

    I think the best bet is to get the Omni plus the JLA: Tower of Babel Deluxe Edition coming out next year as it will contain almost all the missing issues.

    That's my plan. It's not my first choice on how to collect it, but oh well

    I noticed the Shazam deluxe edition released this week collects a bunch of different justice league issues. Are these already collected elsewhere and/or is this worth getting anyway? Don’t really have a good guide of the various JL series post-Morrison which is the last run I really followed. I’ve picked up the recent Snyder, Meltzer, Priest and “origin” collections but honestly have no idea what order to read them in. I even have a few rebirth deluxe hardcovers that I never got around to reading. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks.

    Shazam! ran as a back up feature in Justice League during Johns' New 52 era run, so the JL issues you see listed is only those stories, not the main feature. There's a standard size trade available that collects just that material - but nothing from the current series that just ended.

    Hope that makes sense...

    Yeah, I collected those JL single issues as they came out. As SJNeal wrote, Captain Marvel was the back-up story with the exception of JL #0 and #21 in which he was the main feature.

    It’s the foundation of the modern JL, and forms the basis for a lot of his later work with Batman. Porter’s art hasn’t aged well but the series as a whole is still good. I’d recommend maybe reading a trade or two first to see if it’s to your taste.

    Just to add on, it definitely heralded the "widescreen" comics idea too. The Ellis/Hitch Stormwatch, and later their Authority, as well as Millar/Quitely's Authority and the Millar/Hitch Ultimates runs pull a lot from the Morrison/Porter JLA title. You could probably argue the Busiek/Perez Avengers run did as well

    I don't think we pulled anything from that JLA run. We were competing with it, to be sure -- but our approach was to take everything that was great about past AVENGERS material and step on the gas.

    I wonder will DC bring out The Witching Hour in an omnibus or even Ghosts I'm prepared to wait. However it would be nice to know if they were on the Horizon.
