    I'd give my left nut for an Absolute Zenith.

    Flex Mentallo. Ha.

    The Simon/Kirby/Fleisher/Chua Sandman series from the 70s. And Kirby's Demon. And basically, anything from 70s Kirby.

    Kamandi, in an affordable format. Same for the Drake/Premiani Doom Patrol.

    All the try-out issues of concepts that went nowhere-- B'Wana Beast, the Maniaks, Dingbats of Danger Street, etc.

    Prez and Brother Power, the Geek in one volume.

    Ditko's Creeper.

    Omnibi of miscellaneous mini-series and one-shots by Peter Milligan and Grant Morrison, particularly their Vertigo stuff.

    Speaking of Milligan-- the complete Shade in trade.

    NFL SuperPro (because I'm zany). In that same vein-- Sleepwalker. And maybe Thunderstrike. Yes, I'm sad.

    Some kind of Solo omnibus from DC.

    Ambush Bug and the Heckler.

    Sugar & Spike
    The original Captain Marvel and the Monster Society of Evil (from the 40s)
    Dick Briefer's Frankenstein (the humor strips)

    Give me a few hours, I'll come up with a list 100 strong.

    I'm having a time out until I can learn some manners.
    My gosh Will that is freakin brilliant!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I would be surprised if a lot of the early Ellis and Ennis stuff is not released in TPB. I think they already have done Hitman.
    It would be like saying no to free money and that is actually against the law in a publicly owned company in the US.
    If you were a real die hard you could buy a share of DC and threaten them with a lawsuit. Assuming DC is publicly traded?

    Hitman is only about a third collected.
  3.  (319.30)
    Miracleman. I haven't had the chance to read it all and it annoys me to this day. It annoys me especially because I left it at the point where the villain essentially said he was going to burn down the world.

    Also, was Ellis' Red ever collected? I had borrowed the singles but haven't ever found it.

    Red was, Two-Step wasn't.

    Marvel Man, well the reprinted TPs*.

    But I'll give your left arm for the collected Zenith*.

    ...and a little Pat Mills/Kevin O' Neill gem called Metalzoic*.

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    *Or Todd McFarlane's left arm, you decide. Hell, both his arms will do.

    Hitman, without a doubt. It irks me that I had to resort to scans for that one - it's so good, I want to possess it in durable, physical form.

    @will: that is awesome.

    Edit: seeing as MagicSword mentioned it, how could I forget Deadpool? Wade is my idol.
  6.  (319.34)
    Joe Casey's Deadpool.

    I really liked Two Step, shame that ain't out.

    @ immaterial, I have a trade of Mark Millar's Saviour, the first four issues I think, that was released at the time. After I got it I kept seeing it used in lots of places in the UK, and on ebay for only a few quid, so I don't think it's that hard to get hold of. It didn't collect the whole series (that was itself unfinished), but to be perfectly honest it wasn't very good, so I wasn't really that fussed. In it Jesus and the anti-christ come to earth, but the anti-christ is a beloved cross between Superman and the British TV presenter Jonathan Ross who dubs himself "Saviour", while Jesus is a homeless bum or something.

    I'd like to see Grant Morrison's Kill Your Boyfriend printed up as part of some sort of collection, is there anything else it could go with? His Crack Comics (WE3, Seaguy, Vimanarama)? Other Vertigo Minis?

    Zenith

    @ Bill Reed, God wouldn't a nice chunky hardback of Solo seem like a really sensible idea?

    I agree with the calls for Gulacy's Master of Kung Fu, the entire Simon and Kirby corpus, Kirby's Demon, and Ditko's Creeper (and Hawk and Dove). I'd also like to see McGregor's and Gulacy's Sabre and Gil Kane's and Archie Goodwin's "His Name is...Savage."

    But my three musts would be Scott McCloud's ZOT!, Jan Strnad's and Denis Fujitaki's Dalgoda, and Mike Grell's Starslayer.

    The one I want reprinted is DC's Thriller from the early 1980s.

    That series lost me after Trevor von Eeden left it, but I loved it while he was working on it. I remember thinking while reading the first issue, "what kind of world has beheadings on TV?"

    So naive.

    Thriller! Yes! But the collected Thriller should stop dead just before Bill Dubay starts writing it . Alex Nino's art is nice, but not suited to Thriller, and VonEeden was one of my favourite artists at the time. Beautiful stuff. What a pity his recent work doesn't cut it: people didn't seem to get him, and since then I guess he adjusted his style to suit the marketplace.

    Whatever became of Robert Loren Fleming after Thriller? Did he ever do anything else of interest?
