I just got a message about my preorder and release date changes, it now shows this date:Jack Kirby's Kamandi Omnibus – January 1, 2035

does this mean the title was cancelled?!?

I don't think the Kamandi Omnibus was ever officially solicited. It showed up as an Edelweiss/Amazon fish but, like many of those, they get bounced around the schedule. Odds are it's simply been pushed back on the calendar to either late 2017 or 2018.

When a collection is supposed to be resolicited at a later date, Edelweiss usually shows its status as "postponed indefinitely". In this case, however, the Kamandi Omnibus' status is "cancelled", which tends to be definitive.

Definitive for Edelweiss or DC?   It will be re sollicited I have no doubt of it, it is Kirby!

I checked with my DC friend. 

fubarthepanda is right: it's never been solicited. However, it IS coming, but release date is unknown. 

Good news, right?

Good news indeed. Thanks, and I'm glad to be wrong.

I'd rather have it released this year, it's one of my most wanted DC material to be in omnibus!
but shure.. good news!

I'd count it as a win.  DC is releasing loads of good stuff on a regular basis now. I'd like to have the Kamandi Omnibus now, but my wallet appreciates having it a bit further down the road.

Hopefully Kirby's New Gods omnibus is solicited?

Kamandi Omni and Legion of SH omni were scheduled for the same day if I recall.I assume that Legion is going ahead??


My Kamandi archives got a last minute reprieve from the governor!  I had moved them to the basement to my "to sell" pile, and now I can welcome them back to my shelves upstairs.

I'm really trying to put a breaks on buying Omnibus, but when this is eventually solicited I kind of have to do it. I used to have the originals, and sold them when the Archives started. I didn't get the 2 volume Omnibus editions, as the first half was a downgrade from the Archives. Having the Kirby issues done in one though is too tempting.

Since Fourth World is also geting Omnibus edition, I wonder if there are plans for other Kirby DC material like The Demon, OMAC, Challengers of the Unknown, The Loosers,...

I know they were short runs but maybe collecting all in one Kirby at DC Omnibus?

I got the first Archive but not the second and not the recent Omniboo. I'll likely get this volume when released, though.

So I hate to jinx it, but what are the odds of something screwed up in this volume?  Have the non-Kirby issues been reprinted anywhere?  I already have the 2 archives and the 2nd Omni, so I did not pre-order this... but I bet the colors are nicer.

Just placed my order.  Excited for it.
"Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil’s pawn. Alone among God’s
primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his
brother to possess his brother’s land. Let him not breed in great
numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him;
drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.”
– Sacred Scroll 29:6
