(For earlier DC Comics 2008 trade paperback solicitations, click here and here. And let me mention that there was one mini-series on this list to be collected, for which the first issue hasn't even come out, which I omitted because I like the writer a lot and felt this was something of a low blow. Though it's not as though anyone will be surprised to know this miniseries will eventually be collected -- have I taught you nothing? Let the speculation begin -- when I finally review the series, I'll name names).

Can you (complete Starman) even (complete Starman) believe it? Now what are you going to buy?

  1. Wow that is one amazing list there. I am sure going to be busy!

  2. So what are the contents for the trades in this list and the links for the earlier lists?

  3. Gee, I don't know. Should I maybe think about Complete Starman?

  4. Oh! There are too many interesting things to pick these months.

    I will buy for sure:
    May: Starman: The Complete Saga; Batman: The Resurrection of Ra's al Ghul; Superman: Escape from Bizarro World; Black Adam: The Dark Age; Batman: Joker's Last Laugh.

    June: Green Lantern: Tales of the Sinestro Corps hardcover; Green Lantern: The Sinestro Corps War volume 2; Batman: Jekyll & Hyde.

  5. (continue)
    July: Justice League International; Batman: Going Sane; Batman: Faces.

  6. Lots of good stuff on there. Provided that Complete Starman is not an Absolute edition (way too much money for those), I'm all over it. And, FINALLY, a Johns Green Lantern softcover...awesome.

  7. That's a long wait for Batman and Son trade. Say is that arc worth getting in hardcover?

    Any idea what's Ex Machina (deluxe edition)?

  8. Complete Starman sort of irks me; I'd rather have had Times Past II and not have to re-acquire the whole thing.

    No Crisis on Multiple Earths this season? (I know you tend to leave out the less recent stuff other than a few Showcase mentions)

    Interesting that they didn't go with "The Greatest Legion of Super-Heroes Stories Ever Told", since it looks like it would fit into that line.

    I'd rather have The Krypton Chronicles than the Byrne, honestly

  9. JLI, Starman, Booster Gold, All new Atom, deluxe Ex Machina... my gawd, could you imagine how much money I'd have to spend if everything was as good?
