    Really? From everything I've heard, the whole purpose of the Omnibus program was to collect everything. Where did you hear about this stuff they don't plan on republishing? (The only comic I know of is the Prelude to Rebellion webcomic because the file is corrupted.)

    Yeah, I'm talking about Republic 0 and the MyComyc stuff. Those they said they won't reprint unless the original licensing papers are ever found, even though it certainly looks like it got the rights to do so. The source for that is: http://starwarsblog.starwars.com/in...ks-return-spains-lost-star-wars-comic-strips/

    Other than those, I can't recall any other instances where they denied that they would reprint something.

    Would it really be that difficult for them to nab these JPEGs and print them, with an apologetic editor's note if the quality ends up not being that great?

    Ah, only those two then. Yeah, it'd be nice to get the MyComyc stuff, but if they don't have the license, I understand. Hopefully in time, though.

    Though I will definitely get this 2nd "Wild Space" Omnibus & am glad it's being announced (even before Volume 1 is released), I am quite dissapointed that the material being reprinted seems to be primarily from the '90's & also Prequel-era material.

    Even after the first Wild Space Omni is published, it looks like there will still be some old-skool ('70's/'80's) comics/material out there that still won't been reprinted, i.e. some of the more obscure comics like The Kashyyyk Depths strip by Russ Manning, Planet of Kadril, etc. Here are some links:

    http://dailysw.blogspot.com/2010/09/planet-of-kadril-originally-published.html

    If this material isn't published in these "Wild Space" omnis, where will it be published?! Hopefully there will be a third Volume in the series.

    Randy promised newspaper strip Omnibuses two years ago. I'm sure they are on the way, but they will be their own subtitle. There's the Russ Manning strips, Goodwin/Williams and some others, and if they include webstrips in the same series it will be enough for about three books.

    So. With 27 omnibuses out, three more upcoming, most likely two more potential KOTOR volumes in the near future, plus TTT, DET, CES, and the Legacy HC's, it seems a good chunk of stuff has been omnibussed.

    What's left (most likely not accurate, given I'm pulling it from the Timeline of Comics page on the Wook):

    Dawn of the Jedi
    All the various Tales stories
    The Old Republic
    Lost Tribe of the Sith
    Knight Errant
    Jedi vs. Sith
    Jedi - The Dark Side
    Podracing Tales *
    TPM, AOTC, CW, ROTS, ANH, TESB, and ROTJ photocomics
    Manga TPM, ANH, TESB, and ROTJ
    Republic(HAD, L, and ITU arcs)
    Blood Ties
    Clone Wars Adventures Vols. 1-10
    TCW webcomics, disgests, TGOD, SOTR, ISOTR, and HOTC
    Darth Maul DS
    Evasive Action
    Purge
    Darth Vader and the Lost Command/The Ghost Prison
    Dark Times
    Jabba the Hutt *
    Agent of the Empire
    Russ Manning and Archie Goodwin newspaper strips
    The Force Unleashed/II
    This Crumb for Hire *
    Star Wars Adventures digests
    Rookies
    Star Wars - ongoing
    Scoundrel's Wages *
    Jedi Academy

    Did I just miss it, or are the TCW mag comics not listed there? As well as all of the Lego comics? And there are several more photocomics than those listed.

    Since wild speculation is what we're all about, let's muse on potential future Omnibi.

    I've always figured that they're waiting a few years for Jedi Vs. Sith so they can pack it with Knight Errant in a "New Sith Wars" omnibus.

    Leviathan, Union, and Chewbacca could go together in a "New Republic" omnibus, but at only twelve issues it'd be pretty slim. Anything else they could stick in there?

    heh, wish I knew what Bane vs... Bane? was about. I don't personally have a copy, but it was published in The Clone Wars UK 6.45, the May issue and is likely going to be published in the Clone Wars Magazine 18 in June or whenever.

    I've got the 'Bane' issue, and it's not about Darth Bane. It's more the Cad Bane take on the Boba Fett/Jodo Kast story..(and not as good..)

    if the DH license expires by the end of 2014, it doesn't seem possible for them to put out enough omnibuses to complete their published materials.

    Unless, if they are still allowed to republish old material in new formats, or if they cram out omnibuses like crazy.

    Well, I'd definitely see them put Jedi vs. Sith in with Knight Errant in an Omnibus. And combining the New Republic stories with Invasion could work. Dark Times is self-explanatory, and I like the idea of the Darth Vader and Purge stories getting their own collection.

    Hmm. I'm kind of disappointed in this latest Wild Space collection. I thought it would make a lot more sense to split up the Tales stories into canon or ambiguous canon, and then keep the comedic ones together with Tag and Bink and Sergio for a comedy-themed omnibus. I had hoped originally they could take the non-canon stories from Tales and put them in with some of Visionaires and the Infinities Trilogy to have a more robust Infinities Omnibus, but they didn't do that.

    I don't expect to see LEGO, manga, photonovel or digest stories collected, but hopefully I'll be proven wrong. What I would like to see is a webcomics omnibus or two. I could maybe see a TCW omnibus or two collecting the webcomics, series, Darth Maul story, and UK comics.
