    Okay, so in the never ending "the description is not right" battle with DC books (I'm fairly new to the DC-side...), the Amazon post for the new Orion TPB shows the complete contents of the omnibus. Granted it does say "book one", though. Now, based on everyone's previous experience with DC trades, would this run of 25 issues + some old Kirby issues be broken into 2 TPBs or 3 do you think? I'm thinking I'll just get the omnibus instead, which isn't OOP yet, and would be cheaper to get the one omni vs 2 or especially 3 trades.

    Same with the new Teen Titans by Geoff Johns trade. That would take, what, at ~12 issues per trade, like 4-5 trades. Again, cheaper to get the omni, and even though this book looks huge, would still save bookshelf space vs. 4-5 trades. I find it interesting that they're putting out these trades for omnibuses that technically aren't even OOP yet. Hawkman I get, it's OOP and going for high prices, but these others not so much. And yes, I realize it's got Johns name on it, etc... but still, seems a little odd. Anyways, my two cents.

    FYI, the book is HUGE. Not the biggest they've done, but definitely big. I really wish they'd split into two volumes, even if it were to sell it as a two volume set.

    It's not uncommon for DC to have series in print in multiple formats. For example, the Y The Last Man deluxe editions has been reprinted even though the paperback versions are still out. Same for the Sandman trades and Omnis. The first JSA omnibus has been recently reprinted even though the first big trade is coming later this year. And I'd say the Knightfall Omni will have little bearing on the likelihood of reprints of the trades. Different markets want different things and I'd say DC try to accommodate as many markets as they can (as long as they make a profit obviously).

    I forgot Supergirl by Peter David Book 2 is out today. That's pretty good time. I don't remember when the previous volume was out, but I don't think it was even 3 months ago.

    Thanks for the background info. I'm used to Marvel, who pretty much has the unwritten rule of "if omnibus is in print, no trades of that material will come", and same with MMWs vs epic material (given a few outliers), etc... Although they are releasing a reprint of the Simonson Thor Omni AND new trades at the same time, which I'm guessing is all related to the movie timing, but still, maybe they are rethinking their output. I dunno.

    And yeah, I have the JSA omnibuses, which are mega-bricks, so are the GL ones by Johns, but unless you read them lying down in bed, it's not so bad.

    I believe the third volume is announced for September/October (I might be wrong) and the fourth volume is out in January. The contents for the fourth volume is erroneously posted as the same contents for the third, so its hard telling if there will be more.

    The series ran to #80, plus annuals, specials, etc, and based on provisional information for Book 3, the first three trades take us up to #32 as well as annuals and some one shots. At that rate, I can see seven books, but it depends on how many issues DC puts into later volumes.

    I want to get into Cassandra, but I'm dying for that Stephanie Brown by B.Q Miller. PAD SG is definitely a slow burn, but i loved it by the end. I know the rest of the series is going to be amazing.

    Mid August. Which sounds like a bloody lifetime away, if you ask me. Oh well, a lot of solid things to go after in the meantime. Wonder Woman and the Justice League, trying out some more Rebirth books, and I have to catch up on some older series, like No Mans Land and Cataclysm. Umph. My wallet.

    Harmless unintentional statements that remind me, damn, I'm getting older!! I read those month-to-month in the 90s when I was a 20-ish person and now they are "old series". LOL!!!

    Those are good, not just nostalgic good but good reads!!

    DC should really follow Marvel in regards to collecting classic runs.
    400-500 pages each trade with no less than 5-6 months between each one, like the Priest BP run.
    With their pace I'll be dead before they collect most of these runs.
