It's %50 off at release week on IST. I don't think you can find it any cheaper in the future.

I got 2 Omnibus's over the past few weeks.

I got the Batgirl Bronze Age Omnibus Vol 1 - not sure if there is enough Batgirl material for a vol 2 but this did contain all of the Batgirl stories from her debut until Batman Family #11, with the exception of her appearances in Justice League, World's Finest, Superman and Superman Family and Brave and the Bold. I guess those stories could appear in a volume 2 with the rest of her solo stories. The only real gripe is that it was a thinner omnibus for $99 (though I did not pay that). It probably should have been priced at $75.

Adam Strange Omnibus - this is a really big omnibus. I have always loved this character (and hopefully we will see a great statue from Tweeterhead) and am looking forward to reading this and seeing the wacky aliens that Adam and Alanna will battle.

I think the Omnibus drops a few stories where she cameos as Barbara Gordon (doesn't even have dialogue, just appears in the background accompanying her dad).

I can understand those not being in but some stories she had a starring role. Like I said, hopefully in a Volume 2.

I seriously hope you like this. I found his writing on Batman to be absolutel nonsensical drivel. Found the same with his X-Men, too. The only series work of his that Iíve liked is All-Star Superman which Iím half convinced was ghost written by someone else.

I read some Morrison Batman before getting the omnibus. Arkham Asylum is one of my favorite Batman stories and Batman and Robin run of Morrison was good, i find it really entertaining. Profesor Pyg is an amazing new villain. Black Glow was fun with Williams III art. RIP and Inc was ok... Bat cow was terrible... i hated it but i haven't read all of Morrison's run and it's really well praised, people say it's so deep... may be there is something, i miss, i don't know... so i will reread it from the begining one more time, what is there to lose...

All Star Superman is my favorite Superman run... It was so amazing... Really imperesive stuff. Superman as Superman should be. I haven't read his X-Men yet, but if i ever finish the Claremont run of Uncanny omnibuses, i will get Morrison&Quietly X-Men Omnibus.
