I have never read his Swamp Thing and the trades are expensive on the secondary market.
    That's too bad about Veitch but I agree, I do think his ST deserves an Omni. No disrespect to NAC, but I think it deserves it more than she does.... And then Doug Wheeler awkwardly fits in there somewhere

    Thank you Shaboo that's great, I didn't even know it was coming out until someone mentioned it in passing on Youtube.

    I think I'm boycotting DC's giant tomes from now on. They're just too big.

    Is Gotham by Gaslight going to come back in stock or did I miss out?

    I had no problem reading the longbow hunters saga omnibus at over 1500 pages... glad I did too it was awesome and not really too much gutter loss relative to what one would expect with a book that size. I have never read JLA I am gonna go for it...

    Did anyone buy and receive the Doomsday Clock complete collection? It has a lot of pages for only 12 issues so I was wondering what else is in there. Cannot find a video on it yet.

    There were few if any ads in the issues, so between the main story and back up material there was at least 30 pages of content in each issue. The first and last issues were longer again. So while there were 12 issues, the amount of content is similar to 18 or more standard sized issues, hence the the page count of the collection. There probably additional material as well, like variant covers, etc.

    Thanks for your reply Didn't know that there were longer issues, I thought single issues were all pretty much the same with the same allotment of ads. Learned something again Should arrive tomorrow so then I can have a look first hand

    You're welcome, and I hope you enjoy it!

    And you're right; most single issues usually have a consistent number of ad pages. I'd guess the lack of ads in Doomsday Clock was an homage to the original Watchmen issues which was also published without ads.

    Thanks

    It has arrived already today (yay for prime) and indeed there's not a lot of extras in the back. Basically only a cover gallery and some ads for the book. the rest is all story.

    It's printed on matte paper, feels and looks pretty good. But before I dive in, I will first do some pre-reading like The Button.

    That is unfortunate that a Forward or any kind of background of the story couldn't go in the complete collection. I'm disappointed more with the "machine churning" content rather than rich content.

    Yeah that Green Arrow omnibus is put together well and reads well for that size.
