    I think they provide a greater sense of atmosphere, but there seems to be a loss in texture, unless thats just an illusion to my eyes.

    On second thought, I prefer the slime green and fun neon colors of the original, which make it feel more otherworldly, but the new coloring is easier to follow and easier on the eyes.
    I feel the same. The new color definitely makes it feel like a brand new experience, which is exciting. On the other hand the odd colors of the previous forms really enhance it somehow. I can't exactly describe it. Its more than nostalgia, but this atmosphere that perfectly goes with the horror poetry that is the writing.

    I ask b/c this thing does not sit flat. It does not form an "eye" when opened up and the book really has some gutter loss issues.

    I was really looking forward to the oversized presentation but after flipping through today, I'm not sure if I want to keep this or just stick with the smaller hardcovers from a few years back.
    I just received mine in the mail today and noticed that as well. Shame too because this is the first omni I have bought in a while.

    Looks like Auqaman omnibus joins the list of solicited, but now dead omnibus. They really need to get things together on the collected edition front.

    they are jack ass
    Cancel at a high percentage rate or delay at a even higher
    Percentage rate and than when a Omnibus finally does come
    Out it’s a coin flip of good or crap binding.

    Meaning SA Aquaman? That sucks. I’m hoping the BA Robin Omni still gets done, but that’s almost half a year away.

    Me too the Joker survived the purge hopefully Robin can also. I will be unhappy with them till Brave and the Bold vol 3 comes. Justice League had a few more, but B&B just needed that 3rd volume.

    I can't believe the purge isn't with management. Outside looking in, it reeks of a chaotic environment with no clear leadership/vision.

    I'm not getting the Jonah Hex Omni now, at least not the week of release. There is a frustration in me that they removed the Bronze Age branding on this book.
    If I find it crazy cheap on clearance or blow out from a vendor I will get it then.

    I want some classic Hex in collected form and with less pages
    The chances of a better put together book increases.
    If it comes out I will buy it.

    My All Star Comics deluxe hard cover with under 500 pages is
    Far superior to how it lays and ability to be read compared
    To my Snyder Batman 1100+ omnibus

    So, after all the horrible collections of Moore's Swamp Thing, Absolute Swamp Thing is finally out!
    Who's got it? Impressions?
