    Also I think Books of magic fell victim to this trend too and Shade the changing man wasn't ever collected properly either.

    Books of Magic
    Sandman Mystery Theatre
    Shade, The Changing Man
    Kid Eternity
    Hawkworld
    Birds of Prey
    (Original Series)

    I'm also fairly certain the post-Zero Hour Legionnaires and The Legion by Abnett & Lanning trades have fallen by the wayside. The list of canceled series goes on and on...

    One doubt: some years ago House of Secrets from the 90s got the omnibus treatment. How this series deserve that treatment an Books of Magic or SMT don't?!
    I liked the book, but I never heard much noise about it, those other two are linked with Gaiman work directly... what do you guys think?
    IMO DC is not doing a quite good marketing around those more obscure Vertigo TPBs.

    To get volumes 3, 4 and 5, volumes 1 and 2 have to sell enough copies. The probability of this to happen is much higher with Superman or Batman than it is with more "experimental" stuff. Sad but true, as I personally like experimenting, too.

    yes but as listed above there are way too many titles that ended up unfinished. Can't the collected edition department make the math like you did? This is not a one time accident and this is only the titles they didn't finish, there is plenty more that were just cancelled before they came out.

    I get that they don't have unlimited warehouse space and they want to see profits but after almost 2 decades of heavily pumping out collected editions they surely could be a bit more responsible and try not to break the trust with their costumer base.

    Also Ostranders Martian Manhunter. And the Vertigo Animal Man had one volume left I believe too. They did a single volume of the Azrael ongoing, and more than a few titles pre-New 52 were left with one or two volumes worth uncollected (Supergirl, Titans, Manhunter backups from Streets of Gotham, JLA I think?...) ... honestly, itd probably be easier to list the runs/titles that DC actually DID complete

    This book and Giffen's Doom Patrol were among my DC favorites at the time; both got robbed of their final volume...

    Speaking of DP, Pollack's post-Morrison run is another that got solicited and then canceled before it hit the shelves.

    Looks like they've adjusted the contents of the new JLD tpb. Ill have to do more digging, but i believe they're skipping the crossover entirely.
