How about a Frank Miller Origins Absolute Edition? (Daredevil

Yes, I'd love to see an Absolute Blackest Night! I wouldn't mind an Absolute Sinestro Corps War edition either...

HOLY S@#T! How could I forget?
Absolute Atari Force
I've read only 2 or 3 issues of that as a kid but I still reckon it's one of the better space sagas out there.

Absolute Sandman Mystery Theater
Absolute Fables

George Perez's run on Wonder Woman and John Byrne's run on Superman.

I'd buy an Absolute Superman For All Seasons.

Absolute Superman For All Seasons is a good one. I'd buy that for a dollar! (sorry, Robocop quote will always haunt me)

Absolute Batman: Dark Victory
Absolute Green Lantern: Sinestro Corps War
Absolute Infinite Crisis
Absolute Final Crisis (with a s#!t load of extras that helps to understand certain things in the story)
Absolute Blackest Night (containing Blackest Night & Blackest Night: Green Lantern ==> in chronological order!!!!)

Taking that into account, I would hope DC Comics next Absolute book to be somehting to buy. If your gonna throw a $99.99 price tag, than give me (at least) more than 400 pages.

Absolute Editions, for me, are not only slipcase and big pages but the oprtunity of having interesting extras. Behind the scenes, early sketches, thoughts of the writer and artist, full cover and variant cover gallery, posters and merchandising for the book. I don't know. Give me the good stuff!. That's what an Absolute Edition difference from regular hardcovers or Omnibuses or Deluxes.

Because of that I believe Absolute Green Lantern: Rebirth and now the upcoming Absolute Identity Crisis are a joke!!. DC gave us the finger with those. I loved Identity Crisis but is coming with no extras. And please, 288 pages (the same lenght as the paperback edition) at $99.99??.

The first two would take multiple volumes but I think they are well worth it:

Absolute No Man's Land
Absolute Death of Superman
Absolute Judas Contract (with New Teen Titans #2 and key Terra issues that set up the story arc)

Those are difficul. No Man's Land is getting out a fantastic new edition later this year. Is paperback but is more than 500 pages.

Death of Superman.... Maybe if they add Death + Funeral (complete) and several extras.

Judas Contract?. Complicated. They also launching an omnibus later this year. Most likely the second volume of that will have Judas.

I want an Absolute Stormwatch or two (the Ellis issues) to go with my Absolute Authority volumes. An Absolute Golden Age would be great too.

Alan Moore's Swamp Thing is the greatest DC material I can think of that isn't in this format. There's also Batman Year One, but that's too short for the Absolute price point (I can already hear the complaints) so it's better off receiving a real Deluxe reprint. Now I know they're finishing with releasing Swamp Thing in hardcover this year, but maybe after those books cool off.

I would also like for the ever-busy Jim Lee finish Dark Knight: Boy Wonder. That way they can make an Absolute out of Year 1 + Dark Knight: Boy Wonder. Just like they did with DKR and DK2. That´ll be awesome!.

Absolute Superman for All Seasons would be a dream come true (perhaps including Superman Peace on Earth) and an Absolute sized version of The Complete Frank Miller Batman (sans the stupid christmas special) which has Batman Year One and Dark Knight Returns...I have always been pleading for Absolute Alan Moore Swamp Thing but that looks like it aint going to happen

Maybe if it was just the GL/GLC/BN issues, but then it'd have to be a part 1.. and even then, BN was pretty overwhelming and lost sight of itself halfway through the event.

On the other hand, Absolute Saga of the Swamp Thing, Fables, and Hellblazer would be pretty cool. And Mark Waid's Empire, since it's under the DC banner now.

Posted on May 21, 2011 1:12:51 PM PDT
I´ll go with The Swamp Thing and Blackest Night in Chronological order too.

I am glad they are doing a Identity Crisis. Besides what is listed maybe Rucka's Wonder Woman and BKV's Pride of Bagdad. Also, I have used the quote "I'd buy that for a dollar" since I was a kid and so often it drives people mad.

I was also happy for Absolute Identity Crisis but when I saw the page count and the price... I'm not so thrilled now.

A 288 pages absolute Edition doesn't worth wht they're asking. Not even with Amazon discount. I love Identity Crisis and I was waiting for them to Absolute it, but not like that.
