Re: Any DC Absolutes in the pipeline?

I think I'd rather see the Miller and Lee Goddamn Batman as an Absolute.

Nice. My Absolute Hush came in a protective cardboard box within the mailing box. First Absolute/Omnibus I've gotten this way.

Okay... I can sort of see Batman & Robin, but that storyline is kind of useless without being taken in the greater context of Morrison's Batman run. Plus, DC seems to have fucked up what he was trying to do when the rebooted their universe with 52.
I would think they would release an absolute of Morrison's Batman run first... did I just miss it?

That Absolute Final Crisis is really a head scratcher to me... that series was pretty much retconned/forgotten a few months after it came out (the only consequence being the "death" of Batman), and that was way before the new 52. I guess they really want to milk Morrison fans or something. And who the heck is going to buy Johns' Green Lantern series in Omnibus form? I mean, I like the series, but the tpbs/hcs I have are good enough for me.

The last few Absolutes I've gotten have been in those white cardboard boxes... I think my reissue Planetary ones were.

Im getting it. This, Rebirth, and Blackest Night (eventually) will make a great Absolute trilogy.

Sorry for the ancient bump, but I'd just been talking about having the first two deluxe editions and gradually completing the set, and now this comes along. I'll probably pass on the size and price, though.



Y THE LAST MAN ABSOLUTE EDITION VOL 01 HC
PUBLISHER DC COMICS / VERTIGO
WRITER Brian K. Vaughan
ARTIST Pia Guerra & Jose Marzan, Jr.
RELEASE DATE JUNE 16, 2015
CONDITION NEW

Retail Price $125.00

Y: THE LAST MAN, winner of three Eisner Awards and one of the most critically acclaimed, best-selling comic books series of the last decade, is that rare example of a page-turner that is at once humorous, socially relevant and endlessly surprising.

Written by Brian K. Vaughan (LOST, PRIDE OF BAGHDAD, EX MACHINA) and with art by Pia Guerra, this is the saga of Yorick Brown—the only human survivor of a planet-wide plague that instantly kills every mammal possessing a Y chromosome. Accompanied by a mysterious government agent, a brilliant young geneticist and his pet monkey, Ampersand, Yorick travels the world in search of his lost love and the answer to why he's the last man on earth.

This Absolute Edition will feature the first twenty issues of this action-packed series along with special script pages, character sketchs and cover gallery.

Collects Y: THE LAST MAN #1-20.

Re: Any DC Absolutes in the pipeline?

Now that they've jacked the prices up to $125, I hope they can get the quality control problems with these Absolute books worked out.

Nah... Who am I kidding?

I've always thought the Absolutes were sort of a cool novelty but have never really felt compelled to buy one for the price.

They are wonderful shelf porn, but not practical for reading in my opinion.

DC has been pretty erratic with their quality control. It's like interns put these collections together without doing any research. Lack of supplementary material, known missing pieces, occasionally suspect art reproduction- DC fans have come to know them well. It applies to their trades and hardcovers more than the Absolute line, but even the Absolutes have had a checkered history at times.

Saying all that I still cherish my Watchmen and Crisis Absolutes.
