I've got a whole bunch more DC Comics trade paperback solicitations for fall 2009 now, among them Superman: Ending Battle, The Flash: Mercury Falling, Batman: The Black Casebook, and Static: Trial by Fire. Here's the full rundown:
- Terror Titans - collecting the Scott McKeever miniseries
- Birds of Prey: Platinum Flats - the next Tony Bedard collection
- Brave and the Bold Volume Four - by Marv Wolfman, and including the David Hine Green Lantern/Phantom Stranger story. The coming of the Archie heroes may be in the next volume
- Superman and Batman vs. Vampries and Werewolves
- Green Lantern Corps: Sins of the Star Sapphire - the next Green Lantern Corps collection
- Batgirl: Redemption Road - the new Adam Beechen miniseries
- Batman: The Black Casebook - I believe this indeed collects the Golden and Silver Age stories on which Batman: RIP is based.
- Superman: Ending Battle - I'm pleasantly shocked to see a collection of this 2002 Superman crossover, which pitted Superman against almost every villain he had, plus Manchester Black of the Elite. It doesn't hurt that this story was co-written by Geoff Johns.
- Batman: Two-Face/Scarecrow Year One - collecting stories, I believe, that came out around the time of the two new Batman movies.
- Green Arrow/Black Canary Volume Three: A League of Their Own
- Rann/Thanagr Holy War Volume One - two volumes for this? Really?
- The Flash (featuring Impulse): Mercury Falling - I'm pretty surprised, but happy, to see DC collecting this Impulse-centric story by Todd DeZago, which included the villain Intertia and saw, well, the fall of Max Mercury. This is one of those books I'm going to pre-order, to encourage DC to publish more volumes.
- Static: Trial by Fire - A new printing, I believe, of the miniseries/collection released about the time of the Static Shock cartoon, but retitled Static rather than Static Shock.
- Booster Gold: A Slice of Time - contains Chuck Dixon and Dan Jurgens stories. This may be switching to paperback.
This is in addition to the already-announced Final Crisis hardcover, Green Lantern: Rage of the Red Lanterns, and others.
