Doesn't surprise me JB. Your Marvel Omnibuses are clearly selling well so DC are playing catch up. I wonder if your entire Superman run will be Omnibused now that the trades are finally gettting there.

An unusual collection, but if it's DC and JB I'm in. Now really hoping for a Generations Omnibus

BATMAN 3D's omission is criminal.

If they don't have the unmodified line art on file, and keep in mind it's a book from 25 years ago, that's a big obstacle in reprinting it. I'd love to see it in the non-3D version, but you'd need that line art, and DC would also have to decide whether or not to color the story. It's a lot more restoration work than you'd have with a typical graphic novel.

....

Where the DC movie universe is heading, they just might release a collected edition.

Untold Legend Of Batman #1, New Teen Titans Annual #2, Outsiders #11, Green Lantern Annual #3, Secret Origins Annual #1, World Of Smallville #1-4, Superman Annual #2, World Of Metropolis #1-4, Power Of The Atom #6, Christmas With Super Heroes #2, Green Lantern: Ganthet’s Tale #1, The Flash 80-page Giant #1, Batman: Gotham Knights #2, Dc Comics Presents: Hawkman #1, DCU Brave New World #1 And DCU Infinite Holiday Special #1
----------
Just looking at the contents, I think they meant Adventures of Superman Annual #2.  Superman Annual #2 was in the Man of Steel TPBs.

I did notice some omissions (art-wise, they have typically skipped writing only or inks only in these collections).  

Action Comics Annual #6 40 pgs
Batman Adventures Annual #1 10 pgs (I know it was included in an animated TPB; but this would be a great place for it as well.)
Speed Force #1 10 pgs
Flash 80-Page Giant #1 10 pgs
Hawkman #26 22 pgs
JLA Secret Files 2004 #1 22 pgs

Really cool they are collecting these. Didn't someone just mention something like this in a recent thread?

Dave, the Flash 80 Page Giant story is in there according to the article. Not sure why they wouldn't include the other stuff, although likely some of it has been collected elsewhere. 

Edit: Found it. It was Jan in the recent Collecting JB thread.

Just saw this listed on Amazon. December release? That's out there.

Y'know, there's an old joke that says if you've had a whole string of bad roommates, maybe YOU'RE the bad roommate. I think of this when I look at this collection (and others) and find that virtually every story has a shadow on it. Something that went wrong, and caused me to enjoy the job far less than I should have. Am I the "bad roommate"?

I almost wish it was that simple.

That makes me curious, JB. Were there any jobs you did at DC that you really enjoyed that lived up to what you thought they would be?

Mr. Byrne - you were A common element. But among inkers, editors, marketers, etc., there was another common element - DC Comics.

Do you feel the same when you look back at your Marvel and IDW work? If not, we may have identified the disruption.

JB, I thought for sure the shorter stories you've done for DC, like the Enemy Ace story in that Christmas special, would've been an completely enjoyable experience for you. (Plus, getting to "play" with Kirby's FOURTH WORLD characters, The Demon and OMAC???)

-C!

* Your Batman: Gotham Knights story was pretty fun too!!

Charles, when I say everything has a shadow on it, I mean everything.

We used to say that with a writer, a penciler, an inker, a lettere, a colorist, and all the "behind the scenes" people you don't even think about, there are just SO many chances to screw it up.

I hear what you're saying, JB... just a shame that "playing" with those DC characters couldn't have resulted in a more enjoyable experience... but
I have felt that way with some of the work I've done now that I think deeper about it!

-C!

This is great news! I'll be grabbing this one! And would welcome a collected JK4W as well.

I notice that the 4 issue World of Krypton miniseries, which is not included in this volume, is included in the DC Universe by Mike Mignola hardcover, which comes out this month.
