It's baffling as well because we know a version exists where the original logo isn't baked into the cape image, it's on the spines of the Deluxe Editions.
    Yeah, I don't get this at all. I mean, if they were going with well-conceived updated logos to replace ones that weren't so great to begin with, then yeah. But they're replacing classic logos with downgraded clip art bull$h!t...

    Hey if I can have Moore's run in multiple formats you can have Snyder/Soule's...

    But honestly, I wouldn't sell an autographed book. Especially if it's personalized.

    This is getting tiring.
    Also annoyed. I hate double dipping. I did not figure a nu52 Omni of the Swamp Thing run was likely for a very long time if ever.
    SIGH. This doesn't happen to me much anymore so I'll roll with it. I will be selling the Snyder OHC though....shelf space & funds.

    Thanks. Now the OCD is going to kick in for those of us that purchased the first volume with the DC Vertigo labeling now that its all DC Black Label.

    I didn't expect people getting annoyed at this. I thought it was a nice surprise. Of course I didn't purchase the Snyder OHC. But I do get the double dipping.

    It's the annoyance of already owning half the contents of the upcoming book, when they could have simply offered a reprint of the Snyder ohc(and probably increased the price, honestly) and a sole Soule ohc.

    It's totally a first world problems type of deal

    I understand. On a smaller scale that happens with a lot of the crossover events. Or even how I have all the Moore ST trades but now there's the fancy pants Absolute editions.

    Except the Moore Swamp Thing run is an acclaimed run much like Watchmen so it isn't odd that material is getting upgrades.
    The nu52run while really good didn't lend itself to thinking DC would pull this. Not much nu52material has been made into an Omni, fewer OHC unless you are a Bat/Supes type related book.

    Totally a first world problem since Malaria isn't an issue for me.

    While not being put out by DC themselves, the late 00s DC title Simon Dark is being collected by Clover Press in a new hardcover printing.
    Simon Dark is a strange creature of arcane science and occult magic, the defender of one of his city's forgotten neighborhoods. He is also a scared and lonely teenage boy who has been sewn together from body parts.

    Protecting his neighborhood won't be easy when the opposing forces of dark magic and forbidden science choose it as their battleground. It will take the help of a beautiful coroner and a smitten teenage girl to help Simon stitch together the pieces of his former life and the mystery of his birth... or else death waits them all.

    Acclaimed horror writer Steve Niles (30 Days of Night, October Faction) teams up with artist Scott Hampton (Books of Magic, Batman: Night Cries) to bring their dark imagination to a new kind of hero.

    Collected in a single volume for the first time, this material was originally published by DC Comics as Simon Dark #'s 1 to 18.
    I never read this series but I believe it was a rare case of a creator-owned book/character published by DC that was set in the main DCU - which makes me wonder if those references will be removed for this reprinting.

    I got the first 5/6 issue trade for $5 at a show one time. I can't say much about it, rather forgettable but it has been 10yrs so that may be unfair. Maybe all 18 at a time would have a greater impact.

    Not really an apples to apples comparison. Standard 7x10 trim hardcovers are quite different than Absolute editions. There's literally zero difference between an 8x11 oversized hardcover/deluxe and an 8x11 omnibus, other than the word "omnibus" on the second one which would typically(but not always) contain more pages. They're effectively the same type of book.

    When Dark Horse published Bloodhound Crowbar Medicine (previously from DC) the name of Batman villain Zeiss was changed and his look altered.
