We should probably go ahead and put this on our Christmas lists now:

During the 1980s, John Byrne revolutionized the comics industry with his genre-defining reboot of Superman in the MAN OF STEEL series, as well as his work with the Amazon Warrior in WONDER WOMAN. However, it was his work as a writer and artist on the other heroes and villains in the DC Universe that solidified his place as one of the legends at the imprint. With tales featuring Batman, Green Lantern, the Atom and Hawkman, John Byrneís stories are some of the greatest ever told!

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: Ganthetís 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.

HC, $39.99

Along with the rise of the term 'floppies' to describe individual issues, 'imprint' is quickly becoming the ear-gouging trendy industry term when trying to over-compartmentalize something that could just as easily called "the company".

What's the page count on this?

I never like when they put out these artists collections that  include multi-part stories that only have one part the artist drew a la Untold Legend of Batman.

When will we see "Batman 3D" by JB reprinted? It is one of the few Batman stories JB wrote and drew - would love to see it reprinted in both a 3D and color version

I hope DC follows up with a giant collected edition of GENERATIONS.

Mystified! DC has been almost pathological about ignoring or expunging everything I did for them!

Two of my favorite runs, Doom Patrol and Blood of the Demon still not collected . Not even a single issue.
Hopefully this means they're saving them for later.

Not complaining, it is a dream come true, some of this I've never read, but... why not World of Krypton? I'd pay 5 bucks more for that.

In my case, it was JB's run in Action Comics that made me discover and/or enjoy lots of DC's characters.

BATMAN 3D's omission is criminal.

Untold Legend Of Batman got me excited at the possibility of JB doing more work on DC's top titles... hopefully this paves the way for a collected edition of GENERATIONS.

-C!

********

I'm guessing it's probably because it was already collected in a trade paperback, along with many of the original World of Krypton back-up stories. Strangely, though, DC's original World of Krypton miniseries was not included in that collection.

Many of the items collected are short stories so the page count won't be as high as I thought to begin with but it should still be over 400 pages. This hardcover should be about the same size as the hardcovers in DC's "A Celebration of 75 Years" series.

I guess a few people didn't get the memo. The recent issue of Green Lanterns mentions Wonder Woman living in Gateway City.

This is fantastic news!  I have a a lot of this, but missing some stuf.  It will be great to have it all in one book.  The recent MARVEL UNIVERSE BY JOHN BYRNE is a gold mine.

Glad to see DC issuing this.  GREEN LANTERN: GANTHET'S TALE alone is worth the price of admission.

I hope FOURTH WORLD is next!!!
