    This is disappointing. I would not have bought it if I had known - also kinda shifty to change the trim size to be different than the rest of the Black Label books.
    As far as I know, Black Label collections have matched their single issue formats. As a fan of the format, I do think Three Jokers should have been oversized ("Prestige Plus", I believe is the name they decided on?).

    Yeah, I hadn't realized Three Jokers was different - I had assumed all Black Label books were this format. Sigh

    The hardcover was originally solicited as being Prestige Plus sized. That must have changed before publication (probably when someone realised the proportions didn't match the original single issues).

    So JLI omnibus 2 - that takes us to 50 of JLA and 30 of JLE. We'd need another 2 books to collect the remainder of both series, correct? And that would bring us up to JLA Midsummers Evil/Morrison JLA, right?

    I'm a little fuzzy with the late 80s/early 90s JL titles.

    Also, with the Bronze Age JL 3, would that take us up to the Detroit omnibus?

    I'm thinking the third volume would complete the Giffen/DeMatties run with issue 60 on JLA and 36 on JLE plus the "Formerly Known As" and "I Can't Believe It's Not" stories from the 2000s.

    The post Giffen JLA stories have been collected in trade paperback up to issue 93. I don't expect the JLE after issue 36 or JLA after issue 93 to be collected since those issues are written by Gerard Jones.

    This Gerard Jones business is really interfering with our ability to get material.
    Surely there is a way to side step him getting royalties. He was convicted, right? No loop hole there?

    The only restriction is that a convicted felon cannot profit from his crime. So Jones can't get paid if he wrote a comic about his crimes. DC still has to pay him any contracted royalties for reprinting his work.

    The only work around I can think of is if Jones waives the payment (or asks that it be made to a charity instead) and the reprints omit any credit to Jones. But that's something Jones would have to agree to.

    He'd still get royalties for his comics work. It is totally unrelated to what he got in trouble for. Convicts are only prevented from profiting off what they were convicted of (like if he profited from a book written about his criminal activity.)

    According to DC's distributors, it is. This is the updated cover on Penguin's website

    Not anwhere near. JLA BA #3 collects #147-181. Detroit omnibus starts with #233. So there's still a gap of 51 issues #182-232.
