"Man ain't nothing... but a man." - John Henry
Batman: The Dark Knight Archives Vol. 8
Batman Chronicles Vol. 11
Have shown up on amazon
Also, the Batman Chronicles will apparenlty reprint Detective Comics #82-85, Batman #20-21, and World's Finest Comics #12. From what I can tell, there's nothing really historically important about those issues.
Im worried about getting some of the new collections as Ive heard that recent dc collections are of poor quality.
Naturally with The Dark Knight Rises coming out soon, so is a new Knightfall trade. I've always held off getting the current trades because the paper quality was always pretty bad. But definitely tempted to get this one, especially seeing as it's 600 pages.
Can someone familiar with the story tell me what this includes. I know it has a bunch of previously uncollected issues. But at 600 pages, does it also cover 2 or even 3 of the current trades?
Your name is Kal-El. You are the only survivor of the planet Krypton. Even though you've been raised as a human being, you are not one of them
The new edition volume 2, Knightquest, will contain 100% previously uncollected material. This trade will cover Jean Paul (Azrael)'s time filling in as Batman "The Crusade", and it will also show what Bruce was up to at the time "The Search".
The new edition volume 3, KnightsEnd, will contain the same contents as the old KnightsEnd trade, but as a bonus it will also reprint the contents of the long out of print Prodigal trade, which was the story of Dick Grayson filling in as Batman briefly post KnightSaga.
I actually read all of this in single issues as it was originally released. I was only 10-12 years old as these issues came out and had just recently become a fan after seeing the animated series. I have very fond memories of reading these issues, and these new editions are very attractive to me and I plan on getting all 3.

A Fourth volume of NML? Wouldnt everything be collected as of Vol 3? save a few odd issues but if they were included in a Vol 4 theyd be out of order.
