    Thanks for that. It's really hard to find anything that speaks to the quality of this particular book.

    The Absolutes are a bit too pricey, and I'm guessing that the trades are made w/ the same quality paper as the Fables trades (i.e., pulpy, poor).

    Depends which trades you're looking at. The standard trades (Vols 1 to 10, collecting roughly 6 issues each) have the pulpy, cheap paper. But the paperback versions of the Deluxe editions (Books 1 to 5, collecting roughly 10/11 issues each) use a heavier paper stock. It's still a matt stock, but it suits the line and colour art.

    Books 1 to 5 have a cover design along these lines, with the character changing from cover to cover

    Ah, okay then.

    That's very helpful. Thank you.

    Thank you!

    Many took this to mean that DC had pulled back on the 3-volume idea. However, the current solicitation says its part of a 3-volume set again. The "second and final" seems to refer to only Peter Gross's contributions, so the PRH blurb is also true. It is very strange though.

    Of course, depending on the sales of Volume 2, Volume 3 could still end up cancelled. But it may very well come out. We shall see!
    Haha why keep it simple if they can make it confusing

    I'd be pretty surprised if that set is not just the same old trades. The preview image at least, is using the same design as the current tpb. Also it has a release date that is month+ before the release of the Absolute Vol. 3.

    Default We Need A Triangle Years Superman Omnibus Series!

    I've been thinking about this for a long time. I would love nothing more than to see this series come to light. I also created two bookend omnibus' around this series. Starting immediately after The Exile and Other Stories omnibus.

    Superman: The Engagement and Other Stories Omnibus (1989-1990)
    Action Comics #647-660
    Superman #38-50

    Green Lantern #46
    Legacy of Superman #1

    Teen Titans #19
    Supergirl #20
    Steel #50
    Team Superman Secret Files #1
    Superman Forever #1 (minus epilogues)

    Superman: The Triangle Years Vol. 9 Omnibus (1998-1999)
    Superman Forever #1 (epilogues only)
    Adventures of Superman #558-563, 1,000,000
    Action Comics #745-750, 1,000,000

    Man of Steel #86-94
    Supermen of America #1
    Superman Secret Files #2
    Superman: King of the World #1
    Team Superman #1 (How did this NOT become a series?)

    Then to cap it all off, I'd like to see:

    Superman: The New Millennium Omnibus (1999-2000)
    Superman #151-163, Annual #12
    Adventures of Superman #573-585
    Man of Steel #95-107
    Action Comics #760-772
    Superman: Y2K #1
    Superman: Emperor Joker #1
    Superman: Metropolis Secret Files #1

    Obviously some volumes would be a better experience than others based on the quality of stories, but I believe this is a series that DC should definitely be considering. Fingers crossed!

    This is a great idea, and I love how you mapped it out. (Though I cannot confirm or deny the completeness or accuracy of your map out....though I can tell DC would likely object some of these volumes, like any Death of Superman related ones, which they will conclude as being duplicative considering the existing Omni)

    I may email DC this idea/map of yours.

    DC really needs to improve their Post-Crisis Superman trade output, and doing these would be the way to correct course.

    I'd love to have this era of Superman in omnibus format. The Exile omnibus was a real joy to read, taking me back to those early years of discovering the character.
    "Why do the trunks not "hold up with the times"? What exactly is the problem with them? And don't tell me "nobody wears them" because nobody dresses in a blue body suit and red cape and boots either.

    It's a superhero costume. It's the original superhero costume. It's not real clothing, it's not bound to the ever-changing fashion trends of real life. It's nothing like real life clothing. How exactly can it become outdated?"

    I can confirm. I have kept meticulous track of my Superman collection since Byrne's Man of Steel #1 in 1986. As for duplicates, the Death and Return of Superman Omnibus has already had three printings (with pages added each time). The Vol. 3 I've proposed adds more pages/issues that I've always felt should've been included. I believe a fourth edition would be inevitable, so why not rebrand it as a part of this series?

    That list has my head (and wallet!) spinning!

    But you can damn well bet I'd buy every single one of those books...

    Just received my copy of the Flash by Mark Waid vol 8 and can confirm it contains:

    The Flash #151-#163 (the initial solicit only went to #162 which would orphan #163)
    The Flash Annual #12
    3x stories from The Flash Secret Files #2
    Profile pages for: The Dark Flash/Cobalt Blue/Angela Margolin/The Folded Man/Replicant/Sela Allen/Barry Allen's ring
    Afterword by Mark Waid (Jan 2021)

    Therefore we now have the complete run of The Flash from #62-#225 across the "by Waid/Morrison & Millar/John's" TPB's - lets hope we can get the rest of WML's run and the post-Johns issues collected now!

    Is it likely with Carey's Lucifer being collected in omnibus format now , that the 5 paperbacks collecting the run will stop being printed? I've got volume 1, and I can get 2, 3 and 4 but 5 is proving difficult to get hold of. I don't want to buy 2-4 if I'll never get 5.
