    I really like the new thick DC TPB format - I've been collecting those Lucifer trades, and they're actually pretty nice, this is probably the only one I'd have liked in Deluxe though... The JLA Book 5 TPB just came out, the Mark Waid/Bryan Hitch run, and Book 6 is solicited, and looks like the whole 125 issues may be collected this way. 100 Bullets and Y have been solitited for this format too. I'm gonna start getting the Animal Man ones too, as soon as Dillon's run is done.

    Question - anyone own the new Ex Machina TPBs in this format? does it have a Wildstorm or DC logo on the spine?

    Definitely will keep an eye on this, thanks.
    If you love Jonah and the Palmiotti-Gray take on him check out the newly released Showcase Vol 2. It's great bronze age Western action.

    Oh, I'll hold out until we know for sure. Plenty of time. But I'm prepared for them not to budge, since my impression has been that this would mean bigger change than say, the excluded JSA issues.

    thanks, it's in my wishlist but I'm a bit burned out with bronze age stuff (but I can imagine that Hex is a more satisfying read than the Web of Spider-man that I currently read).

    So how long is it going to take DC to Absolute/Omni/Deluxe the standout N52 titles like Morrison Superman, Snyder Batman, Azzarello Wonder Woman, Aquaman, JL (I'd argue Tomasi's B&R deserves the treatment too)? We're already seeing the N52 Batman Inc collected in an Absolute and Johns' N52 GL stuff will presumably be collected in a subsequent GL omni, but what about the stuff with less explicit ties to pre-N52?

    when there's enough material/when the initial hardcover and trade paperback collections sell through enough

    Too bad JLA vol. 5 leaves stuff out

    They actually have the Vertigo imprint on them.

    I looked this up, it seems there's a six-issue gap between the recent v.4 TPB and the upcoming v.5. Still, DC's solicits are often incorrect.

    If they are doing a Preacher TV show, they will likely do a Preacher omnibus right? Yes this is a speculative post, but we are all thinking this right? As if it didnt have merit enough to get the treatment already

    You'd have to think it would be coming out in some OHC format anyway lol

    I think the info everyone has been looking at for Vol. 4 has been incorrect. Amazon shows it collecting 36-41 when it actually collects 32-46. So if Vol. 5 does collect 47-60 and Heaven's Ladder, it will be fine.

    With DC you never know, there has not been a Green Arrow OHC(Kevin Smith one has been delayed) and the Arrow TV show has been hugely successful/popular for two seasons. If it was Marvel I would say likely.

    And no word on a Gotham Central omnibus yet and that show is only a few months from actually airing and even shares the exact same name as the comic. I'm keeping my fingers crossed but DC usually takes the cross media opportunity to release tpbs rather then expensive hard covers.
