Amazon is very slowly updating their DC Comics collections for Fall 2009. In addition to the Final Crisis hardcover we mentioned the other day, they've also got the paperback of All-Star Batman and Robin (with or without cussing?) and the hardcover Superman: New Krypton Vol. 1: Birth, beginning the Geoff Johns/James Robinson crossover.
Couple of notes on DC Comics's December 2008 solicitations:
All-Star Superman Volume 2 hardcover - Still waiting for Absolute edition. In 2009, I bet.
Batman: RIP The Deluxe Edition - I'm pretty excited about this, given it's DC's first mainstream foray into deluxe oversized editions with their hardcovers. The price isn't higher than a regular hardcover, and I'm willing to fork over the money for hardcovers when I'm getting an added benefit, like the larger size.
Eclipso: Music of the Spheres - This collects the Countdown to Mystery backup tales. Interesting that DC didn't bill this as a "Countdown" tie-in, suggesting maybe the "Countdown" label's lost its sheen. The cover image here reminds me of the 1990s Eclipso series, which is long overdue for a collection given its ties to the modern JSA series and others.
The Flash: Emergency Stop - The solicitation for this trade says it collects issues #130-135, but #135 is the third part of a crossover with Green Lantern and Green Arrow, so this is probably incorrect. The full Grant Morrison/Mark Millar run went to issue #141.
Tune in tomorrow for more trade paperback reviews!
