    The most depressing is that Didio proved himself clueless in his job. On numerous occasions he was complaining that people want older stories. So what seems to be problematic? Sell older stuff! How! Didio does not have to reinvent a wheel. Just copy Marvel's approach. Print 3 formats - Omni, Archives and epic own line. It is not a rocket science.
    Welcome and way to come in hot on your first post!

    I'll repeat myself, but how can you look at Epic Collections sales and not just do the same thing? Maybe don't go as bold as Marvel and just start with a few things - Silver Age complete collections of Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Justice League, etc. Build out from there. Do SOMETHING!

    Sorry? I'm still livid about the Cassandra Cain thing. One more collection would have gotten them to War Games and then all of her run would at least be collected *somewhere*. It's one g.d. collection!

    ARGH. I didn’t even realize some of these had been orphaned! I have so many of these series. :’(

    Get ready for another twist

    I have counted 17 paperback lines cancelled/orphaned. Apart from that, Animal Man Deluxe HC vol. 2 and JLA BA Omni vol. 3 as well as B&B Omni vol. 3.
    Excuse for the Omnis' cancellation, made by our favourite Dan, was that they will try another approach with TPB in the first place... right. He clearly has no clue what is doing, he acts like a headless chicken. Moreover, what Jim Lee is doing? They both clearly do not care anymore.

    You might ask for a list of completed series prior to the New 52, it’d be a whole heckuva lot shorter; shorter still if you make a list of titles/runs that have been reprinted in full AND all volumes are still in print.

    Not yet, but who knows if it will last.

    Everyone should send Dan a facebook message letting him know how bad they are messing up.

    Thank you. It is a pity it was made out of frustration. Due to my employment obligations I usually do not have time to participate in forum discussions, but Didio pushed the limits of my patience.

    I completely agree. They launched the Essential line, then the Golden/Silver/Bronze TPB line. In the both cases, they are failing. I fought that especially the Essential line would be DC' response to the epic line.

    Moreover, why is it so difficult to implement the Epic line solutions into the Omnis' dust jackets?
    Didio does not have to downsize or cancel the lines, just hide the freaking volume number and add subtitle to the spine.

    Yes, indeed. Luckily, Stephanie Browns' run was completed.

    My bad. It was volume 3 that got cancelled. Fixed

    should collect: The Justice League of America #147-181, page count 848 pages.

    Then DC downsized as well as reduced the page count and spawned:

    Justice League of America: The Wedding of the Atom and Jean Loring HC
    (standard)
    Collecting: The Justice League of America #149-158 and Super-Team Family #13-14, page count: 416 pages.

    So they're leaving a gap of 3 issues for those of us trying to collect a complete run??
