    I see DC Comics putting out a big omnibus hardcover for the DC One Million crossover from the 90s. I've always been tempted to pick this up and actually have a few of the One Million issues when I was reading monthlies in the 90s. What is the consensus on this crossover? Is it worth picking up? Is it a good story?

    It's really great. Cool Grant Morrison fueled weirdness. Some of the future versions are very inventive and it's a shame we haven't seen more of them. The only issue can be that some of the action in the spinoff issues can be confusing. Everybody running around dealing with various parts of the problem. Reading it in order might help, though.

    Yeah...I wonder if the omnibus will get it all in order this time. That was something that paperback collections from before were faulted for, which is why I haven't read it yet. I confess I've been interested in this simply because I know it was referenced by All-Star Superman.

    *looks up omnibus*

    Hmmm. Wow. That's a lot of comics.

    Looks like they've included the whole thing, including issues that have nothing to do with the overall plot like the hilarious Hitman issue. They've also included stuff that touches on the One Million event that was made after the fact like the Booster Gold issue. Definitely seems like a collection worth getting, although at more than 1,000 pages it might be hell on your knees.
