Which older series would you like to see as a trade or omnibus ?

Personally the one series I’d love to see as a complete collection in print would be Infinity Inc. It was one of the series that interested me most as a junior high aged reader back in the 80s and I’d love to have a printed copy again without chasing down all those single issues my mom threw away long ago all over again.

All-Star Squadron. Also this one would likely appeal to no one but me, but would love one featuring the Adventure Comics run of Dial H For Her, as well as the DC COmics Presents and backup stories in Superboy that run went on to do.

Aurora I hope you have been enjoying that big luscious 52 omnibus (my carpel tunnel in my left wrist is twitching just thinking of dealing with the weight of that one).

I’ve been grieving that DC stopped publishing Superman: The Man of Tommorow v1 that has the beginning of the Silver Age Superman run in Action and Superman ( mostly missing here on DCU or anywhere digitally). Imagine if they even went beyond that sampler and did an Omnibus that STARTS with Superman 132-139 / Action Comics 255-266 but then at least goes 2 or 3 times further in!

Yo, Rex The Wonder Dog and Captain Carrot Omnibus. It needs to happen. I’d settle for a couple of TPB for Pete sake.

Oh! And a reprint of the Starman series. I have no clue why that hasn’t happened yet.

My top two choices:

-Warlord volume one
-John Byrne’s run on Superman

Both are overdue for the omnibus treatment. I’d love to see those get Absolute releases too.

I have mentioned this in a few other threads, but I really want the Detective Comics Before Batman Omnibus-that was planned, yet cancelled- to be released.
I didn’t think of this example, but I think of series like movies. If, for instance, a very popular film series like Star Wars made a Luke Skywalker movie that just had every scene of his from the Star Wars film, there would be some disappointment and possible confusion.
That’s how I am viewing the Omnibus run. Instead of having an omnibus for all characters in Action Comics, Detective Comics, More Fun Comics, etc., there is an omnibus for just one character or team. And even then some issues that had appearances of the character or team could be missing.
Then, you have omnibuses like the Justice League Silver Age Omnibus vol. 1 that includes references to comics like Mystery in Space #75, yet that comic is not included. That just makes the omnibus incomplete because it is not a complete story; even if the character or team would not be included in the referenced comic.

Anyways, other omnibuses I would like to see made are a Black Canary/Atom/Sandman/Flash/Green Lantern/Spectre/Aquaman/Doctor Fate Golden Age; Superman/Batman/Wonder Woman/Green Arrow Silver Age; and Supergirl/Suicide Squad/Adam Strange Bronze Age. There may be more characters and team ups that I want to see included; some that I mentioned in the Golden Age, I would like to see in Silver, but I didn’t want to include overlaps; and some may not have a Bronze Age like Adam Strange, but if Doom Patrol can have a surprise Bronze Age, maybe Adam Strange does too.

Sorry for the long post, but I love the omnibus format.

We’re long, long overdue for a Question omnibus collecting Denny O’Neil’s work.

I may be crazy but I get the deep sense that somebody in the DC chain of command is actually watching, in some sense, what we’re saying here on these community boards…maybe a distilled statistical thing Applejack has to turn in weekly?.. but I just keep seeing stuff that we talked about here suddenly becoming real months later so who knows maybe some of these omnibuses will come out or at least some of the stuff will be digitized here!!

I want Denny O’Neil’s question reprinted

Really want a Batman: Black and White Omnibus.

After reading the early parts of the series, I would love to see the original Checkmate series collected in an Omnibus format. The series itself runs for a good length and if you add the issue of Action Comics along with the other parts of The Janus Directive, you’ve got something pretty special.

This thread inspired me last night to use some Amazon money my son gave me for Fathers day and go ahead and purchase a hardcover of Superman: the Man of Tomorrow Archive vol 3 so I can at least get some of these older Silver Age foundational Superman and also Action Comics in color that aren’t here yet.
