I wonder if they will get the omnibus treatment?

I guess the same could be said for James Robinson's Starman.

If this series got the omnibus treatment, would it still be called Starman Omnibus?
Considering that the original hardcover was called Starman Omnibus, would the actual omnibus be called The Starman Omnibus omnibus?

Nah, from what I remember it was one of the most traditional mainstream superhero comics ever written by Grant Morrison.

That being said, it was well written and fun at times. In fact it's my second favorite Justice League run, with the first being Justice League International.

For me, the only thing that let this series down was what I considered to be sub standard artwork by Howard Porter.

At least the Mark Waid run was graced with fantastic artwork by Bryan Hitch.

Just hope they get around to publishing a deluxe HC version of  The Shade to match the Starman omnis one day.

But if it were deluxe-sized it wouldn't match...

Not at all.  This is Big, Bad, Majestic superheroics on a highly elevated stage.  Some of the most ingenious and worthy threats and challenges that the JLA has ever faced ... arc after arc. 

It came at a time for me where I had basically written Morrison off as too trippy, too extreme with his Vertigo work on THE INVISIBLES V3 and THE FILTH.  I was pleasantly surprised that his concurrent work on JLA and THE NEW X-MEN was not only coherent ... but it was really, really good.

True.  I really just want a hardcover, though.  Any size will do.

I know that Said was/is/did work on a Morrison DC bind for someone (and it's f'ing gorgeous). I don't have a link at the moment, but he's got it on his Issuu.com. I'm sure he'd be happy to work with you on one, too. :)

Personally, I'm looking forward to the arrival of my Absolute All-Star Superman (as soon as I can afford to order it! 😆). I've not read the series, but I enjoyed DC One Million enough to want to bind it (gee THANKS DC, for putting out an omni while my bind project was lazing about in my closet... sheesh!), so this will be a nice treat.

After more than 30 years I'm still baffled that John Byrne's Superman hasn't had a decent hardcover collection.

I wonder what the reason for this is?

I honestly don't know how DC management thinks.  His wonder woman was deemed to risky to omni but I heard that's when his decline started.  Everyone loves byrne superman

Sounds like a job for... Gigrantor!

Seriously, why not put a bind together? Could be worthwhile.

I am yet to do a custom bind mainly because the cost can be dearer than an actual hardcover book.

Have you bound Byrne's Superman?

If so, I would love to see what they look like...

I was hoping you would so I could see it. Lol

The binds I’m working on are all projects that would never be done by their copyright holders. Atari Force, Crossgen, Rom, etc.

Purely a business decision. They just finished off the trade collection, and figure people wouldn't be interested in buying a new collection this soon. I'm not sure they're wrong. We would buy an omni, but would anyone else?

I missed out on the trades and now some of them are out of print. Any sort of new collection of the material (new paperbacks, deluxe hardcover, omnibus) would be most welcome. I mean, they released Knightfall as large paperbacks, omnibus, and soon a series of re-cut paperbacks so why not?

This story was also collected in the Tales of the Batman: J.H. Williams III HC. I'm still holding out hope for a DC Universe by J.H. Williams III Omnibus...

I would buy that, and also a H.E.R.O. omnibus.  The series from about 15 years ago
