    Okay, I didn't think I had missed it.

    But that is strange, Amazon is usually a week or two behind the DM. Oh well, been looking forward to this one, guess I can wait a few more weeks (not like my read pile is empty or anything)

    For New 52, Johns did 1-40,0 of Justice League, I think he did other tie ins with that series as well. But other writers also worked on Justice League 3000, Justice League International, Justice League of America (which turned into Justice League United) and if you want to count it, Justice League of America’s Vibe.

    I haven’t read all of those, but Lemire worked on JLA/United and really enjoyed that.

    I got mine on the 17th (had it preordered through Amazon)

    I am currently reading my Absolute Swamp Thing and given my so so repair of Absolute Final Crisis, I think this might be my last Absolute edition. There is no reason I should be re-gluing $100 dollar books. I don't even mind the re-coloring, that is kind of a bonus given I have read the material, but a defective binding is a big deal on a pricey format.

    Possibly an innocent slip of the finger on your part, but Johns wrote through to #50 of N52 Justice League (conclusion of Darkseid War).

    I have stopped pre-ordering DC Omnibus and Absolutes since most of the stuff they solicit get canceled anyway, why bother.

    Hey everyone, I need some help. I bought the first 4 Rebirth Batman & Tec Deluxe Editions. I'm trying to find the HC's I'm missing. The #'s seem to be off. What HC's are out right now that I need to get caught up after the first 4 volumes? Thanks

    It also helps that I bought some of the TPBs of issues between the two omnis, since it'll probably be forever until they release omnis conn citing the two.

I can’t imagine that all this has been collected in trades. I’ll do further research on it. I’m right now in the process of collecting all nine Byrne trades. Have four of the nine but some go for a lot on the secondary market. Thanks for the info. Will look into this more.
    I got tired of waiting for solicits for the omnis to connect Exile to Death/Return, so I had that entire period custom bound (including Armageddon 2001, Eclipso: The Darkness Within, and the "Superman and the Justice League of America" era of the early 90's JLA) into 6 fat hardcovers. I had been sitting on this binding for almost 3 years before pulling the trigger, and originally was going to include the post-Byrne and Exile stuff, until they solicited the Exile omni. This most likely means solicits will now be imminent

    Every post I make, it should be assumed by the reader that the following statement is attached: "It's all subjective. What works for me doesn't necessarily work for you, and vice versa, and that's ok. You may have a different opinion on it, but this is mine. That's the wonderful thing about being a comics fan, it's all subjective."

    Well that's the way to do it right! Bet those are great. I only read piecemeal stories in there from TPBs but they were all good, be waiting forever for DC to do it themselves. Especially now with the Byrne omni getting axed right away.

    The cool part of the binding, to me, was being able to insert things like Armageddon & Eclipso into the HC's, which is obviously something DC would never do if they chose to continue the omni line. But I wanted a "complete Post-Crisis Superman" set, and now I have every issue/appearance from Byrne's MoS through the end of Death/Return. Working on post-Death/Return next. I'd much rather have these stories on nicer paper in an official collection, but beggars can't be choosers.

    Fingers crossed they come back to these someday, I'd still buy them in a heartbeat!

    I went ahead and started collecting the MOS trades upon finding out the Omni was cancelled. Only need vol 4 and 8 now but those are hard to come by. Would be nice if they released more Superman omnis. Also I don’t get the point of announcing stuff only to cancel it. Are they gauging the enthusiasm for the release and if they don’t like it they get scared? Not sure how to explain this behavior by DC. I mean just give everyone what they want. We basically have our wallets out already. What is so complicated about this?
