Hello DC Fans! I posted this topic over at Harley’s Crew already, but now that I have the “Trust Level” to post more broadly, I thought I would ask it here to get more eyes on my query!
I have a question for any of you more seasoned, DC Omnibus aficionados… I watched a video on YouTube (I believe it may have been: “Top 5 Graphic Novel and Hardcover Collecting Tips: A Nerdventures Guide” on the YouTube channel: Sequentials Deluxe), and he was talking about the idea of waiting for hardcover and/or Omnibus editions to come out if you’re not in a hurry to read a given comic series right away.
Now, I do prefer the Omnibus books, due to the larger page size and the convenience of having series collected in single tomes; so, ideally for me, if I could be CERTAIN all would be released, eventually, in an Omnibus, I would never buy a trade paperback or smaller, deluxe collection.
Alas, I am at a place where there are some titles I do want to read, and I am debating whether to wait. To help me decide, I thought I would pose the query to those with more experience/knowledge, “Just how consistently do runs and collections get put into Omnibi?” Specifically, I have read the first 5 vols. of the New 52 Suicide Squad, and I want to read further, but I think I’ll put it on pause, if I can be relatively certain that all of the New 52 Suicide Squad will eventually find their way into an Omnibus collection. The same goes for the Harley Quinn series: I have all of the current, 3 Omnibus volumes, and I would like to read the rest of the series, being Issues #35-75, but again, if they will be collected into a 4th Harley Quinn Omnibus, I would rather just wait for that to be released.
Thus, the question I pose to you, again, is how likely are these titles to be collected into DC Omnibi, and/or do you have any suggestions where I might find more information, whether educated conjecture or otherwise.
