The Summer 2018 catalog has been released and it’s filled with exciting collections and re-prints. Here are some quick notes:
- Finally we are getting an Omnibus of Grant Morrison’s Batman run expected out July 10, 2018.
- Infinite Crisis is receiving a re-print of it’s omnibus that has unfortunately been out-of-print for a couple of years. It’s contents seem to be similar to the original, expected out June 19, 2018.
- Surprise Omnibuses: The 90’s Impulse run by Mark Waid & Grant Morrison’s Seven Soldiers series are both receiving omnibuses. Surprise additions to say the least but I’m excited to see them solicited. Expected out August 7, 2018 & August 21, 2018 respectively.
- Continued printings: Geoff John’s JSA book 2, Peter David’s Auqaman book 2, George Perez’s Wonder Woman Omnibus Vol 3 . It’s nice to see DC continue the trend of reprinting old, out-of-print runs and following through to the end. There have been some cases that they have started recollecting a series only to stop short of the completed collection (looking at you Ostrander’s Spectre)
- SUPERMAN RED/SUPERMAN BLUE: This glorious 90’s XTREME story is getting reprinted in it’s entirety and I’m ecstatic. Expected out July 17, 2018.
- Disappointment: Unfortunately it looks like we will have to wait a little longer for the Metal Omnibus. This fall’s hit series is going to be collected in individual collections instead of one complete omnibus. We will undoubtedly get the omnibus collection before too long but it would be nice to see the event collected in it’s entirety right off the bat (no pun intended) . Expected out June 12, 2018.
There is MUCH more solicited for this summer, tell us what you are looking forward to grab!
