    For those of us new to collecting, what do normal/healthy sales numbers look like for DC Omnibus releases? Any way to know how many copies they print per run on a title? Thanks!

    Yes, it's been OOP for a year or so now.

    659 is a decent figure for a Golden Age Omnibus. DC's Omnibuses don't sell as many copies as Marvel Omnibuses. I would say anything from 600 upwards is generally an OK figure for a DC Omnibus. The bigger sellers are usually Batman or Krby related.

    Thanks for that. Out of curiosity, what do Marvel numbers look like?

    A big (important) X-Men omni will do ~1500, give or take. It's pretty dependent on the property, whether the omni fills a hole in a run, etc.

    X-Men Mutant Massacre Omnibus - 1,417
    Silver Surfer by Slott and Allred Omnibus - 1,341
    Marvel Knights by Joe Quesada Omnibus - 677

    I've never seen DC reprinting any of the Legends of the Dark Knight or Tales of the Batman hardcovers, so I wouldn't count on that. These aren't exactly Graphic Novels (like Year One or Long Halloween), but Anthologies.
    I recently had to pay around 100 Euros, too, to get a copy of Breyfogle Vol. 1
    However, there are also the Caped Crusader and Dark Knight Detective TPB's that will probably reprint the complete content of this book, so you can always just get these instead.

    Thank you for the info.Apreciated.
    I just assumed that Anthologies would be reprinted as Graphic Novels as Long Halloween.
    And looking at the comics collected in the Dark Knight Detective TPB Vol 1 and 2 the next volume will actually collect the comic books i wanted from Breyfogle Vol 1.So i will be just getting the Dark Knight Detective TPBīs instead and wait for the third volume to be published.Cool that the Batman comic books i wanted are in those TPB collections.

    Regarding the upcoming Blackest Night Omni... should I bother with it if I have the Green Lantern Omnis? I think the main thrust of the story is already in the GL books, no?

    And than there is the Wonder Woman: Diana Prince 50th Anniversary Omnibus that they solicited for the first week in December.
    The actual release date will be Tuesday December 18th and it will for sure be part of there new release solicits on that day........
    but for now they only way to know they even solicited it I if you happened to safe it in your wish list and retained it (which I did)

    There are plenty of Omnibuses coming out Tuesday/Wednesday from D C - Before Watchmen, Silver Age Flash vol.1, Super Sons, and Diana Prince

    Yes. The tie-ins were fine but more in the "pick up the tpb's for 5 bucks at a convention" way rather than a nice oversized hardcover.

    I've wanted to get it, but I heard that while it includes most of his Superman Adventures stuff, it misses out on a few key stories? I'd like to get all of those, but trying to avoid doubling up if I get the SA trades by themselves... Not sure. I guess it depends on the strength of the other material.
