DC Cancelled Collections – Absolute Fables, John Byrne's Man Of Steel Omnibus, Golden Age Batman and Road To Legion

DC Comics has let retailers know that they have cancelled all orders for Absolute Fables Volume One but that the contents will be made available in a different format. Given that the Absolute format is over-sized hardcover-in-slipcase, it will be interesting to see what format will replace it. They have also cancelled orders for Batman: The Golden Age Omnibus Volume 8, promising that it will be resolicited at a later date. While orders for Superman: Man Of Steel Omnibus By John Byrne Volume 1 have also been cancelled and will be will be made available in a different format.  As will the Legion Of Super-Heroes: The Road To The Legion trade paperback. Look at what you could have won…
