    Anything wrong with your version, or just trying to make a buck?

    The latest. I don't care if I got a first or other print.

    Definitely some exciting things coming!

    I recently completed tracking down the last few issues of Brubaker/Pfeifer's Catwoman series, so it makes perfect sense that they'd release the omni now! I slept on the six-volume chunky trades because I didn't think they'd ever finish them, now they're OOP and going for ridiculous prices.

    It took all of my willpower to skip the LoSH Five Years Later omni, but now that I know A.) they intend to complete the run, and B.) vol. 1 is readily available, I'll pick it up in time for vol. 2! See how that works DC?? Take notes.

    While I wouldn't begrudge DC doing this, the lack of large portions of Levitz run in any format is becoming weirder and weirder (and that's glossing over how hard it is to get the Darkness and Curse tpbs/HCs). Hopefully we get some acceleration of the LoSH HC line (Superboy &, Before Darkness) so I can just read the whole series in a nice format.

    Would it be weird to include the #37 Blackest Night issue, too?

    Thanks for your sacrifice - very happy about the Brubaker omni. I think we're square, though, since I bought 5YL on release day to help juice the numbers for DC.

    They included Catwoman #83 (the Blackest Night tie-in) in the Gotham City Sirens omnibus/TPB's so there is a precedent for including them

    Does anybody know if any of the Watchmen trades are in their original colors? I just noticed the Absolute was retouched by John Higgins.

    From a completist point of view I don’t have any problem with it. In terms of reading experience it wouldn’t really add anything without some summary/recap pages to explain what the heck is going on in it When I did binds of The Question I didn’t include it, but I did put it in my Montoya-centric (and largely Greg Rucka-penned) volumes as it made more sense there.

    As far as I've tracked, the Higgins reworked colors have appeared in every reprint, paperback or hardcover, ever since the Absolute was first released in 2005ish.
    The only hardcovers I've seen with the original coloring are the 1987 edition and the Graphitti Designs slipcased edition, and they're both standard trim size.

    Thanks! I wish I kept my old trade but I think I gave it to a friend and he liked the book!

    I see. Yeah it's pretty crazy how some books can go up in price once they are out of stock.

    I have just put my copy on Gotham Central on eBay, as itís the oldest omnibus I own and quite frankly itís seen better days after being read about 10 times.

    Whoooooa! Pretty hyped for this guy right here. I've never read it, but it's always been on my list.

    I think I'm in, too. It would be a total blind buy for me, but I've always wanted to dive into the Legion more after reading a chunk of the Levitt run a few years back. I passed on the first one due to space concerns, but the opportunity to get such a long run right up until Zero Hour is too tempting.

    I guess I can give away my orphaned Abnett and Lanning trades now.

    Hahaha. I had the same thought. Truth be told, though, I'm not good at letting go of my books.

    Does anybody know if Power of Shazam book 2 has been cancelled?
