The art is sublime and it's really a different flavor of story than we've had for GL in quite awhile. I think it's definitely worth a look at some point, but I hate recommending HCs
    Well, I finished reading it, and--I have to say--I enjoyed it. The story was nothing to write home about, but I still found it engaging and interesting. The drawing and coloring was absolutely phenomenal. I found myself spending more time on each panel just to take in the artwork on display. As far as I'm concerned, this is some of the best artwork that's been produced post-Rebirth. Definitely worth a pick up, and I'm looking forward to volume 2.

    I think Bleeding Cool mentioned this earlier in the week, but DC has announced that both iZombie Book One (collecting the first half of the series) and the Modern Classics edition of All-Star Superman have been cancelled. Neither will be re-solicited.

    Glad you liked it. V2 is definitely a bit different from V1 so far (I'm reading it in floppies). It's hard to find a point of comparison for the run - it's not like Johns' run, or Green Lanterns by Humphries, Venditti's run on Hal and the Corps, or anything else, really.

    I think this was discussed a few pages back but bringing up again since it was released today. Thoughts on the Batman Eternal omnibus? Haven’t read any Batman in years and was going to dive into the 2 Morrison omnibus soon. Was wondering where this comes in (before/after) and if Snyder’s run is well liked by fans.

    I am ordering the Batman Eternal Omnibus
    Because I feel it is the best run/story that
    Features a who’s who in the current
    Batman And Gotham Family.
    Probably not for a fan of just one
    Or two characters not named Batman
    But for sure any who follows the
    Batverse.

    Personally, i'd only pick it up on the cheap. Its a somewhat mixed bag. I'd recommend Snyders run itself, which is getting collected in Omni's, and then maybe just check out Eternal if you want more of the extended cast.

    It's decent. Like any year long story, it's a bit bloated in places. Continuity wise, it takes place during when the Zero Year issues were published. I forget the trade names, but after the one after Death of the Family and before Endgame. If you get the Snyder omnibuses, just put it in between the forthcoming v1 and the presumed v2.

    I'll triple-dip this, since Grell's GA is my GA... but I wish they'd broken it up into 3 volumes instead of (presumably) 2. I'm getting really tired of breaking my wrists on these unwieldy books!

    Perhaps we could start a new thread/support group: “Workout for omnibus collectors”

    Nice. I was kind of afraid DC decided to pull the plug...
