    From the new solicits there are some great omnis I'm getting for sure. Batman by Snyder, Grell GA, Batgirl Burnside.

    Is there enough material for a second American Vampire omni? Aside from this new mini, what wasn't already collected in the first omni? I thought the first omni was all encompassing, but I could be mistaken. Just trying to decide if I should get this 1976 TPB. It's like buying the two Ennis Punisher omnis and then having to buy the Platoon as a standalone TPB.

    I'd say it's safe to say those particular printings are on their way out. Maybe focus your efforts on getting 5 asap...?

    The first American Vampire omni collected most, but not all of the fist AV series, as well as the two 5 issue minis. There would be plenty for a second omni, including #s 28 to 34 of the first series, the two anthologies, the Road to Hell one shot, all 11 issues of Second Cycle, and all 10 issues of 1976.

    That would be around 950 pages, maybe a little more if it included any previously uncollected behind the scenes material. The first omni was 984 pages, so a Vol 2 would have nearly as much content as the first.

    The first omnibus collected issues 1-27 (and two minis). The first series ran a total of 34 issues, followed by a second cycle of 11 issues. There’s also a 64-page one-shot (The Long Road to Hell) and two issues of American Vampire Anthology by multiple writers. And “1976” will run 9 issues. So that leaves 27 regular issues and three extra-sized issues for a second omnibus.

    EDIT: Damn, already answered. That’ll teach me to refresh before answering a question.

    Thanks. I'd forgotten about a bunch of those.
    As Snyder is still in favor over at DC, I'm sure an omni will follow late next year. So I'll hold out.

    Now if only they'd put out the last Batman by King OHC...

    Looks like "Legends of the Dark Knight: Jose Luis ********Lopez" (planned release date was November 9th) has been cancelled, too.

    What a shame ...

    Okay I'm a bit worried. A week ago a youtuber got hold of the New 52 JL Omni and his copy had a really great binding with a big eye, but now Nearmint Conditon has reviewed the same book and the eye is nowhere near as big in that copy. Is it common practice to print the same book at different locations simultanously or something? The binding was the defining factor for me with this book and now I don't know what to do.

    Nice to see DC not only finishing up Grell's run, but doing it relatively quickly after V1.

    Shocking, really, considering what we'd grown accustomed to from their collections dept. over the past few several years! While there's still a lot of room for improvement, they've recently stepped it up in many ways.

    I have a shelf of orphans. PAD Aquaman, Legion by Abnett & Lanning, Ostrander's Spectre, Kyle Rayner... It's such a sad sight.
