    It seems theyve just reverted it to trade paperback. The omni went out of print quickly and I never had a chance to pick it up.
    Oh you gotta be kidding me... Is there some confirmation on this? So you're saying DC can't even finish 2 volume series in 1 format? I'll be really mad if they won't release vol.2 Deluxe.

    At least it looks like they'll finish Promethea in Deluxe. Maybe there's also a chance for Animal Man? Come one, it's just 1 more volume!

    Animal Man Deluxe Hardcover Vol 1 came out December 2018. We have the solicits for the next few months of 2020 and nothing - no news. That would obviously be more than a year since Vol 1. All we know is that they are printing Animal Man Vol 1 again as a trade paperback in Jan or Feb 2020. On the flipside, Promethea Deluxe HC vol 1 came out in March 2019 and is getting vol 2 in Dec of the same year.

    No concrete news - just connecting the dots. Perhaps Animal Man volume 1 HC just didnt sell well? I need vol 2 in oversized deluxe hardcover!!!

    One would hope the previous 5YL HC was cancelled solely because they wanted to do the omnibus instead. I'm a Legion novice, but I'd be excited to get this omni

    For example those recently released three COIE Companion Deluxe Edition HCs are soooooo much better and much more reader-friendly than one 1500+ pages Omnibus.

    This is my number one most wanted Golden Age series. I seriously hope this volume materializes. It's visible on Amazon too.

    https://www.amazon.com/Flash-Golden-...4185295&sr=8-5


    The first tales of Jay Garrick, the original Fastest Man Alive!

    Jay Garrick was just a normal Joe until an accident turned him into the Flash! This reprint of 1940s-era classics follows the success of the All Star Comics Archives series, and is the first to feature the solo adventures of this iconic character.

    "Why do the trunks not "hold up with the times"? What exactly is the problem with them? And don't tell me "nobody wears them" because nobody dresses in a blue body suit and red cape and boots either.

    It's a superhero costume. It's the original superhero costume. It's not real clothing, it's not bound to the ever-changing fashion trends of real life. It's nothing like real life clothing. How exactly can it become outdated?"

    I don't disagree, but I have enough collections from DC that peter out before a logical stopping point that I'm not going to complain too much if DC wants to put out a complete run of something.

    I'm with Bob on this. I do agree however that 1500 pg tomes should be the exception vs becoming regular.

    DC cancels so much before it even hits the stands that IF they solicit it as ONE complete package perhaps it'll encourage more pre-orders which = to market.

    Marvel has a number of orphaned lines stuck at volume one but at least they made what they solicited.

    Super stoked for the LoSH 5 Yrs Later omni! That overpriced HC they solicited previously (12 bargain bin issues for $50?!) was ill-advised.

    And while I too would rather see 2 or 3 smaller volumes, blowing their load in a single shot seems to be the only way DC can actually make these books see print...

    If it didn't sell well, why bother with tpb? It's not about the price, it was already very cheap. If people didn't get it, it's because they didn't' like the story, not format. Which is kida surprising to me.

    I'll get mad if this turns out to be true. They can't finish this Morrison masterpiece in proper format, but release ton of trash/medicore stories in oversied HC. No word on Animal Man Omnibus rerelease too. What are we suppose to do? I thought releasing this anniversary edition is their way to quickly get it done without rereleasing omni.
