DC Comics may have decided that there are still enough copies of Absolute Dark Knight Hardcover on the market for a new print run, which is why they have cancelled the new printing, with the new cover. Even on Amazon Marketplace, 2006 versions sell for less than the cover price of what would be the new version.
But an odder one is DC’s decision to cancel the Batgirl Of Burnside Omnibus, collecting the Cameron Stewart/Brenden Fletcher/Babs Tarr run on the series in one volume.
Here’s what would have been…
BATGIRL OF BURNSIDE OMNIBUS HC

She’s packing her bags, crossing the bridge and heading to Gotham’s coolest neighborhood: Burnside. And when a freak fire burns up her costume and gear, Babs has the chance to become a whole new Batgirl! But she barely slips on her new costume before Batgirl starts trending as Gotham’s first viral vigilante-and attracting a new wave of enemies who want her social-media spotlight for themselves.
