    Can someone please tell me the best way to collect this? I noticed there's 4(?) tpb volumes of his run, taking it up to issue 46. Does this volume have a nice end-cap to it or does the story just continue on with Waid?

    Thanks for the help!
    It's not a shame, because it is already collected in the exact same oversized hardcover format.

    It *is* a shame that the entire JLA series has not been collected in omnibus form, from Morrison through the great Tower of Babel and beyond.

    Thanks for the response. I don't think I've read all of Morrison's run but I believe he introduces the white martians(?). But yes, Tower of Babel is one of my favorite stories in comics. Great recommendation!

    It is a shame as we don’t have a release with a sewn binding. Plus, some like thicker books and some don’t want other creators arcs in there as well.

    Am i correct in saying the the DC one million mini is not collected in those Deluxes as well ?

    Yes, the third Deluxe HC skipped the DC One Million mini but inexplicably included JLA #1,000,000. On the other hand, it's the only DC collection that includes the last two pages of JLA #23, which lead into the crossover. The JLA Vol. 3 TPB simply skips from page 21 of issue #23 to #24's cover.

    After receiving my Gotham Central Omnibus a week ago,
    I finally opened it today and ............ reminder of the bad days.
    I don't see a single stitch and the book will not stay open for
    the first 1/3rd of the book and there is extra glue keeping
    me from fully opening the extra pages in the front.
    "but other wise how was the show"? Story is all clean and shows
    no sign of damage and I don't see any gutter lost that effects any
    of the stories and most importantly each page looks real good
    and I will for sure be enjoying each story........ as long I am fine with
    holding the book in my lap as I read (which just happens to be how I actually read most
    of my books, as I like to read while also surfing on my computer sitting down).

    I've had the ''Watchmen Collector's Edition Hardcover (Slipcased)'' on my comic book wish list for some time now. Today I found a deal online and decided to buy it, but the image that shows on the DC website and on the website of my prefered online store are different from the book I bought:

    173624949.jpg

    I guess the black one (with Dr. Manhattan) was a concept image, but the slipcase ended up different, because I can't find any other photos of the black slipcase version online, just that one. Can someone tell me if that is the case? Thanks!

    I'm planning to order one, so we only need 700 more pledges.

    I wasn't aware the Adam Strange was already being liquidated and the TPB canceled. I picked up a new Omnibus on eBay today. Appreciate the heads up!

    Been out of the loop a long time. Are DC's omnibuses still mousetraps?
    Miller was right.

    Nope. They started using a new bindery in early 2015.

    Welcome back COH!

    DC's Omnibuses are much better than previously.
