    What's the page count on the Lucifer omni? Tempting to upgrade, but if it's anything like the Ex Machina omni then I'll pass.

    It's called Omnibus Volume 1, so should only be 900+ pages each.

    I'm extremely cautious about the Lucifer omnibus. Won't buy them and sell my fat trades until they collect the whole run.
    After Unwritten got cancelled I don't know if I can trust DC to collect this (amazing) run properly.

    I did not see anything I had to have in the advance D C solicitations.
    If D C insists I continued to buy Marvel material with the money I
    am saving, than who am I not to oblige?

    They have really sucked in the most masterful way in not getting
    these new series to trades as soon as possible.

    Looking back I see House Of Secret Omnibus vol.2 (112-154)
    closes out the series. Since I already have volume 1
    I will be getting this to close out the Bronze Age part of
    the run

    When it comes to that Lucifer omnis, how many volumes they're planning?

    Vol 1 collects about half the run, so it will likely be a two volume set, with volume 2 collecting #36 to 75.

    Lucifer is one of those runs that's been on my wish list for ages, but I've never pulled the trigger. I'll get the omnibus instead of the trades but I'll probably wait until the whole thing is collected before buying the first one.

    The cheapest, most direct method is to get the 10 TPB volumes. They are currently rereleasing new 30th anniversary editions, but you can find earlier editions easily. There are 10 trades that collect the 75 issue series and one special. This comprises the entirety of the main Sandman story. There are, however, follow-ups and spinoffs. These aren't essential to the main Sandman story. That is to say, if you only ever read Volumes 1-10, you'd have a complete and satisfying story.

    However, if you fall in love with the series, you can pick up the extra trades. You already have the Death Deluxe, so that takes care of those two miniseries. The other two Gaiman-penned Sandman stories you could get are Endless Nights, Overture, and two versions of The Dream Hunters (an illustrated prose version, and a traditional comic version). A quick look on amazon shows that maybe only the prose version of the Dream Hunters would be hard to find.

    There are also two premium formats you can get that will include all of the above material.

    The first is the Omnibus format. There are currently two Sandman Omnibus volumes, which collect the main series. There is currently a third volume solicited for April which will collect at least the two Death miniseries, Overture, and the comic version of The Dream Hunters. I can't quickly find confirmation that Endless Nights or the prose version of the Dream Hunters will be collected in this volume, though.

    The second is the Absolute format. The entirety of the Gaiman-written Sandman stories, as of right now, are collected in these editions. So if you're looking to get absolutely (heh) everything you can in the same format, this is the best option. The main series is collected in volumes 1-4, Endless Nights, both versions of the Dream Hunters, and a one-off crossover with Sandman Mystery Theatre called Sandman Midnight Theatre is collected in volume 5, Sandman Overture is its own Absolute, and there is also Absolute Death. So in total there are seven Sandman Absolutes you can get. The downside of collecting it in this format, of course, is cost.
    This is an amazing response. Thank you! I will look to see which option is best for me.

    I would love Hellblazer in omnibus format, but I've definitely become aware of DC not finishing collecting series' they start for one reason or another. I'm kinda surprised the tpbs are almost done.

    Cannot wait to get home and open up my Aquaman omnibus. Tempted also to get Animal Man, the deluxe edition.
    That is the land of lost content, I see it shining plain, the happy highways where I went and cannot come again.

    Thanks, sounds a good size. And yeah, it goes without saying that I won't be buying until both volumes are released. DC lost my trust a long time ago.
