A special BATMAN DAY announcement…

Well, DC has decreed today Batman Day, so it’s the perfect time to give you an EXCLUSIVE update on the Detective Comics: Before Batman Omnibus volumes we mentioned: The publisher on Monday will be soliciting these as a single, two-book, slipcased edition:

That’s… impressive.

  1. Wow…. but two omnibus in one set ?? Surely a combined single omnibus of 1500 and at a more affordable price ? Still, definitely of comic book historical interest
