    Thank you.

    I know some prefer to have the credits moved to their own page; I don't care for it because I find a lot of pages just don't look right without the credits, because they're an element of the way the page is designed. (The "Starman" compromise, removing the credits but keeping the title, usually works for me though.)

    Holy creaking bookshelves!!!

    I get that larger omnibuses means fewer volumes means it's less likely that the series will be abandoned, but that's taking it to a whole 'nother level!

    Not the first one with that page count: the MotU and Final Crisis Omnibi had only a few pages less while Invisibles and Blackest Night were even bigger. I‘ve never had issues handling those but I understand if it‘s a problem for others.

    In any case I‘ll get this as I missed out on the original HCs and the TPBs (which weren‘t finished anyway).

    Hmmm, do i sell off my HC's to upgrade...?

    One one hand the Omni seems unwieldy. But on the other, i prefer oversized pages. Decisions, decisions...

    I have been hoping that an updated Starman Omni volume set would emerge. Those original volumes were just too small to be Omnis, page counts like that should only be an Omni when there isn't more content to include.
    That said I prefer my Omnis upper page limit be in 1200-1300 range.

    I will get this. Looks like about 2 volumes will complete it then? I wonder if it'll have Starman #81?
    Will this be available via Diamond thus available at IST I wonder or will I have to order it another way?

    Sounds cool. I finally get to see what the hype is about with Starman.

    Batman: The Dark Knight Detective Vol. 3, collecting Detective Comics #592-600!

    1. Post Crisis Flash is way overdue to be collected. Automatic buy from me.
    2. Power of Shazam doesn't have contents listed and only has Ordway credited as artist. But the page count is 400 so it must contain more than the 1994 Graphic Novel and probably has some issues of the ongoing with art by Peter Krause. If it contains the ongoing, it's a buy for me.
    3. Justice League Quarterly looks like DC has no plans to release a 2nd JLI omnibus. I really have no idea what DC's plan is here. There's (yet another) edition of JLI collecting issues 1-18 and annuals 1-2. Releasing the Quarterly issues separately doesn't make much sense, since the stories tied to the JLA/JLE titles. I'm reluctant to buy it outside of a complete collection of the JLI material, and I have no idea if DC will ever do that.
    4. Batman: Dark Knight Detective 3 was previously listed then cancelled. Hopefully this actually comes out and the series continues.

    Okay, so maybe two (or three?) more post-COIE Flash collections runs up to Waid Book One, then two more that bridge Miller/Morrison to Johns Book One, then the first 225 issues will all be collected in the same format. That's pretty dope. Of course, I'm sure DC will give the pre-Waid ones different trade dress just to mess with my shelf, but still . . .

    WOOOO! Finally a Flash by Mike Baron collection featuring of all his run in one TPB!

    (Although the solicit says issues 1-18 Baron only wrote to 14 with Messner-Loebs taking over from 15 to 61 when Waid began writing)

    Messner-Loebs run is issue 15-61 and Annuals 2-3 at least (not sure about crossovers/guest appearances) so if they could get 14 issues per trade it would likely be about 3-4 TPB's to complete his run - then hopefully they can get the rest of the uncollected stuff into TPB

    I think The Fourth World Omni was 1481 pages. Not sure if that's correct, but I remember that one being MASSIVE. Seesh, talk about needing to work out just to lift it.

    Are people really buying into Starman getting an omnibus again, remember how the last trade omnibus went cancelled twice. They will end up cancelling this one also its what they do. Also saw they put JLA Silver Age omnibus 1 out I wish they would just sell the new dust cover for those who own the original JLA omnibus.

    They didn't cancel anything for a while now. It seems like the big flood of cancellations were part of some restructuring which now seemingly cooled off.
    Also last time they cancelled the reprint of vol3 (both times).

    I would give this a 90% chance to happen since it's a brand new edition, more in line with what they are doing for a while now (big chunky books of material we though won't happen, like JLI or 4th world, Ex machina, etc),
