I had no idea there was an Orion book out there. Seems like a long shot, however I support the Final Crisis, Top Ten, Seven Soldiers, and maaaaaybe Knightfall. Only if they include the lost tale between Who Rules the Night anf Knight's End.

Absolute Zero Hour
Absolute Flash:Rebirth
Absolute Sinestro Corps War
Absolute Infinite Crisis
Absolute Emerald Twilight
The whole Knightfall/Knightquest/Knightsend trilogy

Sure I'll think of more!

Absolute Flash:Rebirth????. Dude!!. We already had an unnecessary Absolute Rebirth. Don´t ask for another fiasco. I likek Flash just fine, but I don´t think Rebirth is Absolute material.

Absolute Sinestro Corps War... VERY AGREE!!
Absolute Infinite Crisis... VERY AGREE!!

Who knows maybe they'll get it right as far as an Absolute Flash:Rebirth goes!

I can't support Final Crisis and that's only because the artwork is absolutely dreadful(no pun intended),the thing is I was going to buy a TPB of Final Crisis because I dug Infinite Crisis(own a hardcover TPB of it),so I thought the artwork would be just as good as Infinite Crisis,also Grant Morrison was doing the writing and I totally dig him(read his run on JLA sometime),then I read an issue and was totally turned off by the artwork,which goes to show that artwork can make or break a comic series,no matter how good the writer is!

Here are a few more ideas:

An absolute edition of pretty much anything Frank Miller did on Batman
Absolute Underworld

An Absolute edition of Blackest Knight would be very cool,perhaps they'll edit all those TPB's into 1 cohesive volume and have better story flow!

I'd like an Absolute Superman Birthright but I hope books like Secret Origin, Earth One or the more recent ongoing title upheavals aren't hurting its chances somehow.

I would like Absolute Blackest Night ONLY if DC put the issues chronologically. It was such a lay down that the whole run was divided in Blackest Night and Blackest Night: Green Lantern. It made it weak.

There's an absolute named Absolute Dark Knight and it have Dark Knight Returns and Dark Knight Strikes again. I was expecting Jim Lee and Frank Miller end up Dark Knight: Boy Wonder (sequel for All Star Batman & Robin, The Boy Wonder) so they can make a great absolute with Batman: Year One and Dark Knight: Boy Wonder run.

But alas, Jim Lee published last year (with drums and all) that on February 2011 Dark Knight: Boy Wonder will finally hit the stands so Miller and him can finally end the run. Of course, that was an empty promise.

Now, not only there haven't been news for that storyline ends, but we have the "re-numbering" of DC Titles and Lee is now working on JLA.

Absolute Golden Age would be a treat. But it's short enough that a Deluxe might be a better option. Rebirth already stretched it even with some bonus material, and Kingdom Come had the advantage of DC having like a pirate chest of bonuses for it. Alex Ross works seems very extra-friendly.

Absolute Kingdom Come, although kind of short, was a magnificent absolute. Ross art is magnificent and the extras were worthy of an Absolute edition. Besides that it got leather bound imitation on the cover so it looked even more pretty.

Absolute Rebirth can´t compare by a longshot. Not only it was very shot but, at least for me, Ethan Van Sciver´s art wasn´t meant to be enlarged. The only thing I discovred was that the guy doesn´t care about backgounds. Everything looked so simplistic. Besides it was horrendus to se that 90% of the extras are on the paperback edition.

I would hate for that to repeat on Absolute Identity Crisis.

The best way to do the Absolute Editions of any DC story is to do like what they did with Crisis,meaning that you have 1 book be the actual story and then you have the second book of bonus materials,you know sort of like a behind the scenes type thing where you get to see how the story evolves and everything else!

I was tremendously disappointed with Infinite Crisis and wouldn't like an Absolute of it (I think they wasted George Perez by having him do fill-in work in it) but I guess it's kind of inevitable at this point. I'd check out an Absolute Final Crisis especially with a companion volume like the original Crisis but only because I respect Morrison. But I'd rather see The Invisibles (tall dream).

Agree on the extra book with the extras.
