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:
House of Mystery (both series)
I, Vampire with the JLD crossover books included
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.
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.
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.
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.
Mark Russell and Steve Pugh’s The Flintstones 12-issue liminted series + the Booster Gold/The Flintstones Annual #1
Oh, and you know - ALL the Alan Moore Superman stories.
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 But yeah I totally need an SSoSV omnibus, and it would be awesome if we got the unpublished issues with it too.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:
Justice League International (Post-Crisis JL)
Captain Atom ‘86
I second that
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.
This omnibus comes out next week!!
The Question by Dennis O Neil
Deathstroke by Christopher Priest
Green Lantern Corps by Peter Tomasi etc
Young Justice by Peter David
Hawkman by Robert Vendeti
Robin by Chuck Dixon
Birds of Prey by Gail Simone
Birds of Prey by Chuck Dixon
Batgirl by Kelley Puckett
Aquaman by Peter David
Secret Six by Gail Simone
Batman Contagion to just before Catacylsm
Red Robin by Yost
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.
