    thanks!
    I think the Deluxe Trades actually have the Mark Waid Adam Strange story from the original run of the floppy single issues.
    The Deluxe Hardcovers don't but I think it has the Frank Quitely Earth 2 Book as well as the short run on JLA Classified. I don't know if the OHC/Deluxe editions are hard to find or not. Being Morrison and the Justice League, my guess is that they should be available?

    I'm just hoping they break it in two. I'm a huge fan of Morrison and have only read the first few arcs of this run. Like others have said, from what I read, it was just plain fun in the best way,
    You must not be aware that DC has already released the following omnis in that page count realm:

    -Infinite Crisis Omnibus (1424 pages)
    -Final Crisis Omnibus (1512 pages)
    -Batman: The Arkham Saga Omnibus (1648 pages)
    -JSA Omnibus Vol 2 (1408 pages)
    -He-Man and the Masters of the Universe Omnibus (1496 pages)
    -Ex Machina Omnibus (1440 pages)
    -Teen Titans by Geoff Johns Omnibus (1426 pages)
    -Jack Kirby's Fourth World Omnibus (1481 pages)
    -DC Universe by Jack Kirby Omnibus (1472 pages)

    The only problem any of these have is that the binding is tight, because they apply more glue to it than their thinner omnis so that they'll stay strong.

    The Blackest Night Omnibus has them all beat at 1664 which, to my knowledge, is the largest single-volume page count for a book released by any comic publisher to date.

    Actually I guess this tops it...

    WTH is that?
    Is that a mock-up, custom bind or something?

    It’s a joke someone put together for the Omnibus Collectors Facebook page.

    Definitely in for JLA Morrison omni, don't have to track down the HC books now. The deluxe HCs of Sandman are slightly enticing, I've never read a Sandman comic before but this might be a good way to sample it.

    Yeah, I remembered that about 15 minutes after posting that, and didn't bother going back to edit it.

    And most importantly, JLA by Morrison Omnibus!
    http://prhinternationalsales.com/boo...=9781779504999

    There was also a new Infinite Crisis omni in there (same contents, different cover)

    Between that, WW by Gail, and Zero Hour, I'm going to have to make huge additions to my most wanted list
    Oh man, that's a lot of pages, but I've been holding off getting JLA because I prefer hardcover to paperback. I definitely want this.

    Can I hope for Final Night get something for its 25th in 2021? I'm on a roll for things from my wishlist.

    I think Final Night is probably on the short list for next big event to get collected - Zero Hour, Final Crisis, Blackest Night, and 1,000,000 are all comparable types of collections and have come out recently. My number one is Armageddon 2001 (in my fantasy, they also have Dan Jurgens re-draw the last issue with the original ending), but Final Night would have to be on DC's shortlist right behind Metal and Flashpoint . . .

    Hmmm m

    So lets say JLA has 1440 story pages, approximately 65 issues at 22 pages per issue.

    Holy smokes, this might have everything Morrison JLA ever.

    The deluxe editions do not have the Quitely story.

    Retailers are more likely to order a 800 page book for 75 bucks . I mean i can sell. 75 dollar book as a gift much easier than a damn 150 dollar book, thats hard to read on top of that steep price.

    And if that sells, they’ll order vol 2.

    Its just real dumn if DC to do 1500 page books.

    The hardcover Deluxe Editions are only Morrison written issues - fill ins are skipped. The 9 volume trade set contains every issue of the series, plus Secret Files and a few other related items. However, Morrison & MCGuiness' 3 issue JLA Classified arc is not included. Overall, I'd recommend the trades as they're more complete.

    The fact that they keep printing (and reprinting) them suggests otherwise.

    Batman by Morrison v3 showed up. Was expecting it for June, but I can wait until August, I suppose.

    I agree. As a buyer, I just can't do these lumbering books anymore. I love Absolute Editions and Omnibi(?) that don't exceed 500-600 pages, but beyond that, I'm out. It killed me, but I sold off my Morrison X-Men omnibus the other day, because as much as I adore that run, I do not adore that massive, unweildy chunk of paper.
