NEWSFLASH: DC Delays (My) Christmas until May

This news (via Newsarama) made me as giddy as a school-boy:

STARMAN, the acclaimed DC Universe series created by writer James Robinson and artist Tony Harris, will be collected for the first time in hardcover, on
high-quality paper, in THE STARMAN OMNIBUS, a series of six volumes beginning in May.

This series will feature new covers by Harris, and will measure 6.75” x
10.25”. Collecting the entire STARMAN series, plus the STARMAN ANNUALS, SECRET FILES, 80-PAGE GIANT, THE SHADE miniseries and much more, these volumes include stories illustrated by Harris, Peter Snejbjerg, Chris Sprouse, J.H. Williams III, Phil Jimenez, Gene Ha, Guy Davis, Teddy Kristiansen, Lee Weeks and many others, as well as several stories co-written by David Goyer.

Scheduled to reach stores in May, THE STARMAN OMNIBUS VOL. 1 HC is a 448 page title collecting STARMAN #0 and 1-16, with a cover price of $49.99 U.S.

Starman is absolutely one of my top five, actually top three ever and to know I'll be able to have it all on my book shelf in hard cover is awesome. Especially since it'll collect the last few issues that they haven't gotten around to.

Since I can't grab my comics today, no reviews till Sunday. Have a great Turkey Day and always remember the true meaning of Thanksgiving (per Warren Ellis):

Give your neighbours an infected blanket this Thursday and then move into
their houses after they're dead.
