"Batman Golden Age Omnibus v6 shipped yesterday.
If we’re folding Marvel into this discussion, too, a second volume of The Marvel Universe by John Byrne and the Waid/Weiringo Fantastic Four omnibus shipped yesterday as well."
"I still find the omnibuses a bit unwieldy, but I really like their page size. With my Silver Age Flash Omnibus volume 3, just the addition of an inch or so makes the stories much more accessible and cormfortable to read than the archives. And I…"
"If they gathered all of the Joker appearances (even when he is one of several almost-cameo villains?) it would take up several volumes. Then they'd be in trouble because they failed to include some they missed!"
"They could sell me on a series of Joker ominibuses that reprinted every Joker story, starting in 1940. This is OK, but is it comprehensive? Is it every Joker story in every title between the years listed? That would be useful -- otherwise, I have…"
"I'd say no. Including it almost makes me want to buy the volume, but I have almost everything else in it. Perhaps someday they'll just do Canceled Comics Cavalcade for the general public.
I was really puzzled by the WW inclusion until I…"
"I don't know whether or not Joker #10 was in Canceled Comics Cavelcade, but the solicitation does refer to the "never before published The Joker #10. (Does inclusion in Canceled Comics Cavelcade count as "being published"?)"
"THE BRAVE & THE BOLD OMNIBUS VOL. 3: Reprints #157-200, August 28, 2019.
THE JOKER BRONZE AGE OMNIBUS: Reprints Batman #251, 260, 286, 291-294, 321, 353, 365-366, 400; The Brave & the Bold #111, 118, 129-130, 141, 191; The Joker #1-10;…"
I may be out of line here but in regards with your exchange with Mark, we both know how he feels about Marvel now. We've both know that his opinion has not and probably will not change though I hope it does. Despite previous advice, I have no doubt that he will continue to comment on how "evil" the Marvel heroes are whenever he can.
However, he has had some medical problems and he has left here before thinking no one wants him here. That's something that I am hoping to avoid. I'm not blaming you for ANYTHING, let me make that clear. I am only trying to prevent another round of the same debate that apparently caused hard feelings before.
You won't change his mind and challenging him about it will only make him defensive, as past interactions show us. If steered clear from the topic of Marvel's Post-Civil War period, he seems happier.
Anyway, that's my two cents. Again I'm not faulting you at all. Merely trying to keep the peace, as they say.
