2018 brings two new Omnibuses for Grant Morrison‘s DC superhero work, collecting his Seven Soldiers series of series on one oversized volume, and his Batman run in another even bigger volume.
Seven Soldiers by Grant Morrison Omnibus
Grant Morrison, J.H. Williams III (Illustrated by), Ryan Sook (Illustrated by), Cameron Stewart (Illustrated by)
On sale 21st August, $75, 792 pages
Grant Morrison’s epic and ambitious SEVEN SOLDIERS saga is collected here in its entirety for the first time ever!
SEVEN SOLDIERS is an epic tale of life, death, triumph and redemption that explores the nature of heroism and sacrifice. Featuring seven heroes: the Shining Knight, the Guardian, Zatanna, Bulleteer, Frankenstein, Mister Miracle and Klarion the Witch Boy. Independently, each of these characters is featured in a story that redefines their purpose in the DC Universe. But their stories also interweave with the others, telling a grander story of a devastating global threat to mankind. Together, these reluctant champions must work together to save the world from the insidious threat of the invading Sheeda warriors—without even meeting one another.
With art from one of the greatest group of illustrators ever collected, including J.H. Williams III, Ryan Sook, Cameron Stewart, Yanick Paquette, Doug Mahnke and more, this massive omnibus collection brings together one of the most ambitious projects in DC history. Collects SEVEN SOLDIERS #0-1, SEVEN SOLDIERS: SHINING KNIGHT #1-4, SEVEN SOLDIERS: GUARDIAN #1-4, SEVEN SOLDIERS: ZATANNA #1-4, SEVEN SOLDIERS: KLARION THE WITCH BOY #1-4, SEVEN SOLDIERS: MISTER MIRACLE #1-4, SEVEN SOLDIERS: BULLETEER #1-4 and SEVEN SOLDIERS: FRANKENSTEIN #1-4.
Batman by Grant Morrison Omnibus Vol. 1
Grant Morrison, Andy Kubert (Illustrated by), Tony Daniel (Illustrated by)
10 July 2018 $125.00, 1000 pages
The New York Times bestselling tales of Batman by Grant Morrison are now collected in their entirety in this oversize omnibus edition!
One of the greatest storytellers of his generation, Grant Morrison’s arrival onto the Dark Knight was one of the most hyped debuts in industry history. This collection includes time-spanning epic graphic novels featuring the cataclysmic events of FINAL CRISIS and the introduction of Batman’s son, Damian Wayne! These blockbuster stories featured a deconstruction of super hero comics like never before, with challenging, thought-provoking takes on the modern, four-color icons.
The issues inside aren’t yet listed but I would expect that first appearance of Damian Wayne in Batman #655 – #658, Batman #663 – #675, DC Universe #0, Batman #676 – #683, Final Crisis #1-7, The Return Of Bruce Wayne #1-6, Batman #700-#703, Batman: The Return, to make up the most of it. Batman And Robin already has its own Omnibus… and maybe Batman Inc will get its own too?
ERRATA: Matthew Dixon points out that while a Morrison Ratman And Robin Omnibus was offered, it was never published, Only the Tomasi/Gleason Batman And Robin run from the New 52 line was Omnibused.
