    There's already enough doubling between Caped Crusader/Dark Detective TPBs and Legends Of The Dark Knight/Tales Of The Batman HCs.

    Let's just hope these will be released long enough to completely cover the gap between COIE and Knightfall.
    Maximum Carnage TPB is available so why Marvel released Spiderman Maximum Carnage Epic Collection? Why bother with X-men Milestones since the Epic line is available?

    Because of the target audience. Death in the Family is a selection, which a casual reader can buy. The Caped Crusader and Dark Detective lines are more likely targeted to collectors who want to collect all the issues of Batman and Detective Comics in a chronological order and uniformed form. It is now obvious why custom binds are so popular.

    There is not enough professionally prepared collections by DC Comics in terms of the post-crisis Batman. Legends Of The Dark Knight/Tales Of The Batman HCs are creator/artist centric and therefore incomplete, there are lots of missing/omitted issues (Gene Colan vol. 2 is the best example of it).

    The Cape Crusader and Dark Detective had a potential to clean the messy doubling and yet again DC failed in that matter.

    We can hope that a multi-billion worth publisher will publish the titles in full/with omitted issues and fill the gap between COIE and Knightfall or ...they will just cancel it on a whim.

    As a long time DC fan I want them to succeed, but at the moment Marvel's offer is more attractive and structured.

    You could be right, though we should wait to see if it shifts a reasonable amount in January. Also, it has Geoff Johns attached to the title so DC may see these Omnibuses through to the end. Let's hope so.

    The more time that goes by, the more I appreciate Absolute: Batman Incorporated. It's one of my favorite books.
    Burnham's art, the colors, more blisteringly cool Morrison concepts and dialogue.

    I still have nitpicks, and I find the tone somewhat awkward as a continuation of what came before, but it's easily one of my favorite books. It's always fun to read.

    I'm very excited about the omnibus in August. I didn't pick up the Absolute w/the new Burnham pages, so it'll be quite a treat to get to read them for the first time.

    Maybe the issue is that this run has been collected in:

    1. Regular TPB series
    2. A 3 volume omnibus set
    3. A 6 volume fat TPB series

    So a new differently mapped omnibus line may not have a high demand.

    I love the run, I just feel with those numbers on vol 1 and a lot of odd politics at DC with Geoff Johns it's an easy out to cancel the rest.

    But yes, I think the fat tpbs are actually the best way to collect/read this run since you also have Waid's and Morrison/Millar's run in similar styled fat tpbs.
