Actually my initial question was because I thought you were saying there was a problem with the list and I couldn't figure out what it was, but sure go ahead and call me pathetic and ignorant.

very cool and exhaustive list, still waiting for DC to collect the GL stories from the Action comics weekly run. Still resisting the urge to buy dozens of books for 3-4 pages of GL story each and while most of it isn't canon (Lord Malvolio) some of it is Katma Tui.

I still have a few gaps left, but have the vast majority of it collected from dollar bins. It isn't easy on space but thankfully the run didn't last forever.

I HATE reading or viewing things out of order but I remember reading the first one where (where Katma dies) and was like "so THAT'S where that happens!" despite not reading the preceding GLC stories. No spoiler alerts in a dollar bin haha

I wouldn't count on Katma still being canon, anyway, much less her bits in ACW. If I had to hazard a guess, I'd say the character herself is still canon, but I'm MUCH less certain that her marriage to John is still canon, and I'm very skeptical that her death at the hands of the Carol Ferris Star Sapphire is still canon.

^I got all the Action run from a comic store that had them all at a reasonable price. I found it worth it. The GLs were mostly a decent size (8-10 pages) since they were the feature. I like the Superman stuff (even though it was short) because the artist was Curt Swan, which is how I picture Clark. I also liked the Mad Dog stories and some others.

Looks like all the DC Rebirth trades will be softcover (I'm assuming this based off of Batman Volume 1 not being hardcover).

Green Lanterns Volume 1 will collect Green Lanterns: Rebirth #1 and Green Lanterns #1-6.

At 17 dollars, it better be hardcover!

Isn't that the normal price of DC softcovers these days?

Also interesting that the Nightwing trade appears to be skipping the issues from the upcoming Batbook crossover, I'm guessing crossovers will be collected standalone from now on? Should prevent any further tiffs between me and _ION.

So Godhead doesn't collect issues 38-40 of the GL books, Renegade picks up at #41, and the other GL books spin off into a different story. I was wondering if I would be missing anything particularly important by just reading Godhead and skipping those 3 issues of each book, or if it would be better to read the trades individually. No spoilers, please. I just wanna figure out the best way to move forward.

Thanks!

You'll get 38-40 in The Life Equation trade if you buy that, but if you're torn between that or Godhead, go with Godhead...Unless of course you're also considering how your collection looks.

I didn't read them but I don't think you'd miss anything important in GLC, New Guardians or Red Lanterns since issue #40 was the final issue for all of those books.

Thanks y'all. Yeah, I guess I'm just trying to determine whether I'd miss anything leading into Renegade, Lost Army, etc. by not reading 38-40.

So I do believe (and again I haven't read it) that GL 38-40 may be a prelude to Renegade based off the issue descriptions on DC's site so you might want to get that.

The others however don't really flow into the series that followed them if I recall correctly.

Just a bit odd that Hal is getting the Deluxe Edition when its the lower selling title, but I guess that's probably an EVS contract detail.

This and a bunch of other Rebirth deluxe editions ended up being cancelled btw.
