3 Collected Editions That Got Makeovers in DC’s November 2014 Solicts

ABSOLUTE GREEN ARROW BY KEVIN SMITH HC
ABSOLUTE GREEN ARROW BY KEVIN SMITH HC

DC Comics has released their November 2014 Solicitations and it looks as though some of the contents and format for a few of them have been changed:

Well, well, DC has finally solicited Keven Smith’s Green Arrow. It was to be a Deluxe Edition Hardcover, but now for whatever reason it’s an Absolute. I’ve said it before on the podcast, I like Smith, just not his ventures into comic book writing. That said, I may give this another shot – just because of the great art from Phil Hester and Ande Parks. Collecting GREEN ARROW #1-15, 400 pages, $99.99. Oh, and just when do you think Smith will make his cameo on Arrow?

The Green Lantern by Geoff Johns Omnibus Volume 1 is another book that had a minor redo. It seems as though DC forgot to include Green Lantern Corps #14-18 and instead solicited #1-5. Probably just a typo, so it’s no big deal for me. Collects GREEN LANTERN REBIRTH #1-6, GREEN LANTERN CORPS: RECHARGE #1-5, GREEN LANTERN #1-25, GREEN LANTERN CORPS #14-18, TALES OF THE SINESTRO CORPS: SUPERMAN PRIME #1, GREEN LANTERN CORPS SINESTRO SPECIAL #1, GREEN LANTERN SECRET FILES 2005 #1 and GREEN LANTERN/SINESTRO CORPS SECRET FILES #1, 1,232 pages, $125.00.

Nightwing Vol. 1: Bludhaven TP, collects the 4-issue miniseries and issues #1-8 of his solo series from the 1990’s. It’s high time DC got to reissuing this series, but this book is missing the Nightwing: Alfred’s Return one-shot, which was originally collected in Nightwing: Ties That Bind along with the 4-issue mini – so I’m not sure what DC is doing here. To that end, #1-8 was collected in the trade Nightwing: A Knight In Bludhaven, which now adds more confusion with the two similar titles.
