📚Which Underrated Series Deserves An Omnibus or Absolute Edition? 📚

I would like an absolute edition of the 1986 Legends event including the crossover issues. To my knowledge, the only collected editions just have the 6 Legends issues.

From the top of my head:

Omnibus:
Young Romance
House of Mystery (both series)
I, Vampire with the JLD crossover books included

Absolute
George Romero Presents Toe Tags
Elvira’s House of Mystery

How about a Metal Men Omnibus that collects the original series by Kanigher, Andru, and Esposito?

Warlord would be nice.

@KookieSuperApe,

Yes, issues #1-10 of Infinity, Inc. (“Generations Saga”) should be collected, including the necessary All-Star Squadron issues. Although the story comprises about a dozen issues, it’s far from decompressed. Roy Thomas packed the story with a lot of history and details, and the artwork by Jerry Ordway is gorgeous.

I would also include Infinity, Inc. issues #11 (a Star Spangled Kid story) and #12 (the press conference where the Infinitors reveal their identities to the public), as they serve to further set-up the series. DC could round out the collection with some house ads, the team’s original Who’s Who entry, etc. The cover to issue #11 would even make a great cover for the entire package.

Hercules Unbound

Jose Luis Garcia-Lopez & Walt Simonson Pencils with Wally Wood Inks. It would make a nice oversize hardback like the John Byrne Superman books that have been coming out.

Jonny Quest

Since Jonny Quest has appeared in Future Quest, I’d like to see an Omnibus for the original Comico run. I’m assuming DC has the license to Jonny Quest and could reprint those issues like Dark Horse did with Star Wars the Marvel years.

The Secret Society of Supervillains (it was the predecessor to The Legion of Doom), and is significant in that it represented a threat even larger than just the 7-10 member JLA might be able to handle. It is also a great book for looking at how villains interact with each other. Their rules, relationships and how to fund common goals, while each serving their own agendas. Talk about “the villain is the hero of their own story”, SSoSV was villains as protagonist.

Lol. I didn’t read this at first and started asking for SSoSV too. But yeah I totally need an SSoSV omnibus, and it would be awesome if we got the unpublished issues with it too. It would also be cool to get the JL arc where they switch bodies.

I don’t know what the terms mean, but if there isn’t one of these already, make one for:

Starman ‘88
Justice League International (Post-Crisis JL)
Captain Atom ‘86

Question omnibuuuus.

Also, the 70s Richard Dragon: Kung-Fu Fighter and the mostly-still-needs-digitized '90s Green Arrow run.

I’d also love a Batgirl (2000) omnibus, or at least one for Puckett’s run.

It was New 52 Superman, but Greg Pak’s Action Comics deserves an Omnibus. He inarguably wrote the best Superman comics of that era of DC.

Also more deluxe editions like the rebirth ones would be very nice as long as they have good glossy paper. A lot of books could have benefited from more especially the longer runs like Flash by Williamson.
