I paid a year's savings for Crossfire..was lucky enough to find someone selling Blitz at almost half the price everyone else was selling it for.

Those are two of the best trades with Wally. Why don't they get reprinted?

Probably for the same reason that my local discount department store has a large selection of Marvel toys, but only a handful of JLU and Batman toys....DC is lousy at mass marketing.

Years ago I was a Digimon fan who didn't care for Pokemon. Imagine my disappointment that the only Digimon toys out were the main characters and stuff like boring pencil sets and lunch boxes. Meanwhile, Pokemon had all kinds of action figures in a variety of sizes plus plushies and....geez...loads of stuff. They were smart and are still selling stuff and making shows. Digimon might as well be dead for all that it had a better storyline.

DC might want to wise up. Maybe they will once they start making good movies beyond the Batman ones.

Man I am lucky I snatched these up as they were published. I always buy doubles of the Flash issues when they come out plus the collected editions. Think I have two of the BLITZ trade...somewhere in my storage.

DC is pretty lousy about keeping trades in print. Marvel is better but still not perfect either. Seems like Dark Horse has been doing really good with their Omnibus line, you would think DC and Marvel would see that example and cash in too.

I found a copy of Crossfire for $32. I picked it up because it's by far the cheapest I've seen it go during my searches. Now I just need Blitz to complete the set.

How much did Crossfire go for originally? I would have much rather given my money to my LCS and DC. Maybe they are planning a rerelease similar to Starman omnibus and that's why they are letting them go out of print?

Heh, thanks guys. Not for sale. I buy most of these doubles for my son. So when he is big enough to really appreciate comics I can give him doubles of my favorites.

Oh and Flash Omnibus's of Johns run would be insanely cool.

Can you adopt me please Seriously, that's awesome that you are buying extra books for you son. My dad apparently had comics for me but my mom sold them all except for a few Conan's and Spidey's before I really knew how to read them.

On a side note, I cracked down and bought a $40 copy of Blitz. It hurts to pay that much (especially because I have been off of work the past two and a half weeks, and Amazon will be charging & shipping my complete LOST set any day now) but I decided to jump on it instead of risking the price going up anymore. Knowing my luck, a super awesome reprint version will be announced tomorrow (which will be good news for those of you still looking )
