    Yes they did re-print the third volume with the correct page order. I have all 3 and they are easy to read. Not on Marvel level when it comes to the binding..but pretty reasonable. As for the contents...it's more Johns...nothing amazing, but quite solid throughout.

    How is the Gotham Central Omnibus, good build quality and binding?

    Also thinking about Scalped Deluxe editions, what is the build quality on those?

    overall GC is quite good but they've used thas cured black cardboard for the cover and it feels a bit flimsy.
    Scalped is really good quality, usual Vertigo deluxe.

    The vol3 printing error was corrected straight away, the books with the error were supposedly destroyed and replacement were sent out. Except I got a full refund and kept the book
    Binding is tight on all 3 but not unreadable. I really like the stories, probably theb est Flash run along with Waid's (which I haven't read yet but that's the one people usually point at) although it takes a storyarc or two to really get going.

    Just to follow what Balakin said, GC is like most all current DC omnis, ok sewn binding but you'll have to hold it open within about the first and last 75 pages or so, terrible cheap flimsy cover boards, but fantastic thick paper quality. Excellent book worth having though.

    Unfortunately Scalped, and I think all DC/Vertigo Deluxe Editions, are sewn binding but for whatever reason then glued completely flat to the cover spine as well. It's very annoying, but I wouldn't let it dissuade you from buying. They are still good quality for value books and it's currently the best way to buy this fantastic series.

    Ah so they haven't changed their build quality much then, I have ordered the Omnibus and will be thinking on Scalped. Cheers for the help.

    it's weird, seems like if they do a decent job with the binding then we get the crappy cardboard cover but if the binding is tighter then they put a nice laminated cover on. Like the recently released Cosmic Odyssey deluxe has an amazing binding especially for a DC book but the cover is black cb while all the Scalped books are tighter but with really nice covers.

    Cosmic Odyssey feels really good I hold it. Everything I'd pretty amazing, from paper quality to cover quality.

    So I heard that the Aquaman Rebirth Deluxe edition is cancelled. Is this true?

    I guess, technically, yes. But So was Bronze Age Swamp Thins and a slew of others that were then resolicited.

    I'm guessing we'll see a new solicitation that includes the entire Johns run, not just up to 16.

    I think youre confusing the Aquaman Rebirth Deluxe, with the Aquaman by Geoff Johns Omni.

    Looks like it opens up vol. 4. It's a widescreen summer action movie kinda tale, and was many people's first encounter with Grendel bitd due to it being released by Dark Horse and not Comico. The next story in vol. 4, "Devil Quest" should honestly not be read until you've read some of the Grendel Tales mini's, as it ties into both those as well as Batman/Grendel II. The third portion of Omnibus 4 is the Greg Rucka prose novel, which is kinda funny and another reason I don't like the mapping of these omnibuses.

    The interesting thing about the prose novel was that it featured the Grendel from War Child and also a character from one of the Grendel Tales stories. You're right, the mapping kind of sucks.
