    52 omnibus looks real good. Is it better than the IC omnibus, content wise?

    So the extras are really just a couple of notes with some sketches. 1-2 pages. Not sure if its the same as TPB. No cover gallery, all of the covers are included in the story pages - though, as I mentioned above, the rear of the book has additional sketches and the covers of the four trades.

    How would you like it? Of the pages, or the binding?

    I haven't read IC omni, only IC and some of the tie-ins at time of publication, but 52 is wonderful.

    Opened to a random page.

    Yes, the spine bends up and in like that. I only just noticed that, but as I said I've been reading it in my lap. Doesn't seem like it effects the spine when the book closes again, but I guess I wouldn't read it flat just the same.

    It's written by four writers cohesively, where as IC was a line and company wide crossover by many many many writers and editors.

    "Better" is kind of hard to say, as they're two different books. IC is a collection of stories that precede the IC event, and then the even itself, and 52 is one big story from start to end.

    I got it. I'm assuming they are both excellent though.
    And that pic- there is a real flex in that spine! That's good, or so I've heard. Glad to see DC is improving even more. Almost there!

    Thanks for all the 52 omni pics. All looks good to me. Hopefully mine will be here this week. Can't wait to read it since I just finished IC omni the other day.

    Yeah but is it just the ribbon flexing or is the spine itself bending and putting a crease in it.

    I can't tell on that one. Too dark

    Definitely will not make an absolute of All star Batman and Robin.
    Definitely not an Absolute of Knightfall.
    Probably not an omnibus of Knightfall, at least in the near future. I consider the trades they're releasing as "omnibuses". I mean, they are 650 pages each.

    You know, I didn't think I'd have to explain to a comic book forum that accompanying text is as important as the pictures
